Anyone who knows me, knows I cannot stick at diets. My previous two attempts have resulted in a 7lb loss and then me getting disillusioned and then drunk.
I crashed onto the bathroom scales on Monday morning, and was shocked to see I was the heaviest I had been (excluding pregnancy) ever (give or take 5lbs). I had also been feeling (and looking) bloated, chosing clothes was a nightmare as everything doesn’t quite fit properly and looks different on as its stretched around a lardier physique.
So, seizing the opportunity of feeling disgusted with myself, I re-joined Weightwatchers online and set off on another diet. I also saw a nifty challenge called ‘Loose 2st by Christmas’. Never one to normally engage in any ‘target’ motivators, this one hit the mark, I would have a deadline and something to achieve. I joined this challenge a bit after their beginning, but the aim was 2lb per week, which would put me on track for a 1.5 stone loss by 19th December! Imagine that! My target loss and looking like a foxy minx with the mince pies and mulled wine!
So I’m doing it, and I pray to Rosemary Connolly that I stick to it this time. I am on day three and I already feel really good, less bloated and the WW plan is easy to track online and the ProPoints thingy they do means you can have a treat on a weekly basis. A glass of wine is only 2 points (I think a G&T with slimline is only 1!) but I am definitely not drinking in the week and am toying with the idea of 11 weeks off the booze until Christmas as well….
I know! I’ve changed!
I wish me every success in my endeavour to become less of a woman 😉
