2 weeks ago I joined Slimming World for the 2nd time my life. I had previously been a member 6 years ago in the run up to my brother’s wedding and it really helped me to lose weight and feel healthier.
I have a long and dangerous relationship with cake, pizza and basically everything that’s bad for my waistline and my heart. I decided to rejoin Slimming World again to take control of my eating habits and reduce my weight to help reduce my BMI.
At my first weigh in I was 13st 6lbs. In my first week I lost 4lbs but I am fairly sure that in this second week I have unfortunatley put it all back on. Why? A mixture of no will power and laziness. To achieve with Slimming World you really have to plan your meals ahead and have healthy snacks to hand for when you feel peckish. I did no planning this week and didn’t have any healthy foods around when I felt the stomach rumble so ended up making bad, lazy choices with what was easy and available to hand.
Ad and I are going away for a couple of nights at the end of this coming week for my birthday and also to tick off something else on my 40before40 list! I don’t want to be sitting analysing menus and not enjoying myself when we eat out and will allow myself to misbehave with the calories on those 2 days, but the beginning of the week will be full of healthier choices.
I will continue to post updates on the weight loss journey, and hopefully over the next few months, my BMI will start to go down.
