Slimming World Sunday - back in the saddle again

In the two weeks leading up to the wedding, I didn't go to my Slimming World meetings and you know what, I could feel the change in how I thought about food.  I started sneaking little treats in here and there, but in saying that, I was still conscious of what decisions I was making, just not at the level I'd usually be at, but hey it was wedding time!

So on the Monday after the wedding, I hoofed myself back to class, filled with the dread and it was like I was going for my first ever weigh in!  It brought me back to that day where I knew I just had to bite the bullet, stand on the scales and know I'd never be that weight again.  I think it takes a lot of courage to jump up on a set of scales in front of a stranger and get weighed and so on I got, I held my breath and hoped for the best.  I was only up 1.5lbs which I was over the moon about and expected to be up at least 3 or 4 lbs!

I'm so glad I went back after the little break because it gave me renewed motivation to keep going and I knew it would be easy enough to get that 1.5lbs back off, which it was.  Another little milestone was reached yesterday morning too which I tweeted about in my excitement.  I was going to have a treat for breakfast like a muffin or something bad for me, and went to weigh myself and saw that I went down into the next stone!  This was huge for me because I'm now around the weight I thought I was when I first started Slimming World!

This is one of those rambly posts lads and I'll be back with more themed posts over the coming weeks.  We've lots of ideas to help keep you and us motivated through the summer months.  I just wanted to tell you that if you're thinking about starting Slimming World or any other diet plan, the hardest thing is starting.  Going to that first ever meeting or after a bit of a break is tough going, but you just have to grin and bear it and keep with the mantra "Onwards and downwards"!

  1. Fair play, it can be hard to hop back on when you know there will be a gain but it's a tiny drop in the ocean considering how well you've done! I had a bit of a naughty weekend too but back on the saddle today!
