Slimming World - it had to be done!
Well, I'm admitting to it. Wasn't sure whether to or not, but it may encourage me even further. I've joined Slimming World - wey hey. I will be weighing in on a Thursday night, so if you would like to follow me and encourage me, please visit each Thursday evening, around 9pm, when the latest weigh-in figure will be on full display.
My daughter is now 21 months and she is my main inspiration. I would like to do all the sporty things she will be doing when she's old enough. I want to take her ice skating (as I love it too), swimming (we go once a week), skiing (Aviemore is only one hour away), playing in the park etc. I want to be a Yummy Mummy.
I joined two weeks ago (in desperation), as I need to lose quite a few pounds, well stones actually. My weight has been gradually increasing over the last few years, a combination of being really happily married, love of food (especially Cornish Pasties and Cornish Clotted Cream) and having a daughter. Some may say, that's no excuse and you are right. It isn't. Lack of exercise is also a major factor. Last summer I was in a good routine, walking about 3 miles everyday. Winter came, and that was that! I'm a person that concentrates on work, work, work (and snacking) and forgets about being healthy.
So now, I have no excuse, I go to 'Fat Club' (as we call it in our house) every week, so I'm being monitored. I will also post my good and BAD weeks.
So far I have lost 3.5 pounds, not much, but at least it's going in the right direction.
Don't forget to get your update, late Thursday night.
