Now I’m back!
At the end of January, I was suffering terribly from migraines. I was getting them just about every day and they were taking it out of me. I stopped caring about trying to lose weight. There wasn’t much I did care about, to be honest. I was feeling constantly exhausted and I wasn’t dealing with the pain very well.
My Slimming World consultant totally understood my need for a break. I’m on her social team and decided to still keep doing the weigh-in every week. It was my way of not completely giving up. I knew I’d be back on plan when I was ready.
March 7th – Back On Plan
I went to do the weigh-in today and decided to buy a 12-week countdown. My plan was to get weighed but not be told my result. Wendy, the lovely lady who does the weighing with me, would have kept my book for me so I didn’t know my result.
Sometimes it helps me to not know if I’ve had a bad week but this time I decided I needed to face it and move on.
Big Gain – Food Diaries Will Help
As I said, I’ve not been weighed since the last week in January and during February I was like the Very Hungry Caterpillar, eating everything in sight. The problem was, I wasn’t hungry. I just ate anyway and I didn’t turn into a beautiful butterfly, I just added a stone and a half that has now taken me to the heaviest I’ve been in 4 years.
My total loss with Slimming World was 8 and a half stone and I’ve now put 4 stones back on.
I’m not happy with this and to help me get back on track I’ve brought 4 food diaries home with me. In my mind, I’m now a new member. I’ve counted syns and measured healthy extras just like I did when I first joined.
Not Giving Up
It’s been very tough for me these last few years but I’m never going to give up trying to get to my dream weight.
