When I first started blogging, it was mainly a way to keep track of my weight loss and share some support with readers. Obviously it’s now becoming way more than that, but weight loss is still a challenge for me.
I believe 100% in the Slimming World plan – I know it won’t work for everyone, but it works for me :) Check out my story here.
Despite the fact that I know it works, and I desperately don’t want to get fat again, I have been struggling to stick to the plan lately. I gained 2.5lbs at weigh in this week – not as bad as it seems considering I haven’t been to group for about a month due to work etc, but still – it’s a sign that I need to get a grip on my diet again.
I had a scary realisation last night. I was watching a dvd with the fam in the evening and I popped in to the kitchen to make a drink. I also had 2 chocolate cookies – in the kitchen. on my own. in secret. It’s actions like these that made me overweight in the first place – my family could never understand how I gained so much weight when we were eating practically the same?
I’m terrified. I’m glad that I’m in a position where I was able to recognise what was happening (before I gained 7lbs!), but it’s still scary.
I have a big weekend planned with friends visiting, but as soon as I return to school on Tuesday I need to get back on the healthy living bandwagon. I hope that by declaring it to all you 3xf-ers, I’ll stick to my plans.
Do you have any bad habits like my secret eating that may have sabotaged your efforts in the first place? What do you do when you slip off the healthy path?
