Well that was embarrassing
Well it’s been a while since i last blogged about my weight loss journey, in fact over three months. This isn’t good enough, and neither is my pathetic attempts to lose weight, well up to five weeks ago at least.
It’s been a hard year for losing weight, all my own fault, and something i need to change NOW! It all came to a head when i returned from London, i have so many hopes about the weight i was going to lose and the stuff i was going to do, well it turned out to be a bloody disaster. I ate like a pig, drank like a fish and missed the chance to take loads of photos, although that was the fault of the weather.
So on my return i went to group, i had gained 11lbs, plus the weight i had gained before that, all in all it was a complete mess. All that hard work down the drain, yes i was still one and a half stone lighter but considering i was nearly three and a half stone lighter at one point you can see why i was so down. Now i had a choice to make, give up and try on my own, i guess i knew what would happen if i went down that road, i would of course rejoin Slimming World in a year or so much heavier than i was when i started. So my only option was to carry on, only this time with a more positive outlook.
There is of course a reason for the new positive attitude, something that you mark as “remember that when you want to eat something bad” when your will power is fading. There was of course that moment that led me to Slimming World in the first place, you can read that if you want to in an earlier post (not going there again!) Then there was the moment in London that also served to make me determined to win this damned fat fight. I say London, it was Chessington World of Adventures, yeah it was a blooming adventure! one of the main reasons why i wanted to lose some weight before the trip was so i could fit on a roller coaster with my daughter. By now you probably know where I’m going with this. The first one was embarrassing as the bar would not lock fully, they had to try three times before it registered as locked, but i made it and although it was very uncomfortable it was a good laugh. The next one was very different, i knew as soon as i sat down the bloody bar wasn’t going to fit, but just to make sure i suffered complete and utter embarrassment the attendant called for help, then the manager turned up and all three stood there for a few seconds before i said “get me out now” Talk about wanting the ground to open up and swallow me!
So there is was right there, the motivation i needed to get back on plan, and it worked, I’ve lost 12lbs in five weeks, now I’m heading in the right direction, lets see if i can flipping keep it up.
So i guess the moral of this story is, breathing in doesn’t make you slimmer.
