My Weight And Me
In 8 weeks from the November to the January of this year, I lost 2lbs, then maintained, then gained it back, then lost it again and I just could not get past this barrier. It was so frustrating and every week I felt like I was hammering my head against a brick wall. So the last week I attended back in January, I really went for it, drank loads of water, ate loads of speed food, had my allowance of sins, and stepped on the scales and what did it say "MAINTAIN"!!!!
I could have cried, and in fact, I snatched up my coat and bag and walked out. There were other people there who had cheated and had chinese, and chippy and drank and lost 3 lbs!!!! I was so demotivated and vowed never to go back. But, something had to give and a couple of weeks ago I decided I had to go back, for my health if for nothing else. Don't get me wrong, in the 4 months I had been away I only put on half a stone which wasn't bad I don't think, especially when I had been eating cakes and chocolates and full sugar pop again.
So, last week, with my head held high, I walked back into class. It was great to see everyone again, and it was good that the support was still there. Once class was over, I decided to start cooking again and really get inspired by other slimmers on Instagram. I have really been enjoying eating fruits and vegetables again, and spending time making my meals. Yes, it is hard to find motivation when you have been at work all day and you are tired but I have to make the effort if I want to see the results on the scales. This week, I went to my first official weigh in back after my absence and I had lost 2lbs!!!
I was so thrilled, as all day I had been panicking that I would have maintained or put on. I felt like an astronaut in space could have seen my smile, I was smiling that much. So, I am going to continue co on my journey and I have to remember that I just have to keep trying, no matter what and to try not to get discouraged when I see people that are losing a lot more weight than myself in just 1 week. I have decided that once a week on my blog I am going to give a little update on how I have done and then post a recipe that I have made in that week.
I guess my weight will be something I will be battling with for the rest of my life, and I am damn sure that I am going to keep fighting hard to get slim and keep healthy.
Please let me know in the comments if you are on a weight loss journey, I would love to know how you are doing and then hopefully we can all inspire and support each other.
Love and Hugs
