Today I am restarting my slimming world journey. I cannot recommend Slimming World enough it’s just that I sadly thought I had beaten the diet and didn’t need one anymore but unfortunately I don’t have the metabolism or active lifestyle where I can eat whatever I want.
Now I am not blaming Martyn one little bit but since I have been with him I have put on a stone and a half. We have been eating out, going on days out where there has only been fast food and generally just enjoying ourselves.
A few weeks ago he started back on his diet and started going to the gym more and now it is time I do the same.
So here are my starting photos.
They are a hell of a lot better than my starting photos back in 2015 when I was at my heaviest but I still need to get at least two stone off so I feel comfortable.
I have a few milestones that I want to hit for certain times.
For example it’s Martyn’s sisters engagement party in three and a bit weeks and I’d like to be half a stone down for that! And then another half a stone down for the end of august. Then I will only have another stone to go. The problem with me is that I never hit my target weight at slimming world but I’m really hoping this time I can reach my target weight and stay there!
I’m also going back to my old ways and making a milestone reward chart! I love this because it really gives me something to aim for.
I’m so insecure and the problem is I am the only one who can do something about it. Anyone who has ever struggled with their weight knows that the worse part is finding the motivation to just make that first step, and then kept it.
I have kicked the smoking habit, and now I need to kick the bad eating habit because I am so so close to being the person I want to be.
My mum is always so supportive and makes me feel like I can do anything I put my mind too and Martyn reminds me constantly that what I see in the mirror is not what he sees, but I know that I need to do something to make me feel better about myself.
So today is the day no more excuses! I have made a slimming world quiche which is so so tasty, cannot believe I forgot about them.
Half a tub of fat free cottage cheese
Half a tub of Quark
and whatever filling you want
Mix everything up, spray fry light in the dish and bang in the oven for 20 minutes. Voila!
Well thats it for tonight but I’m going to try and post updates regularly and maybe a few different recipe ideas I’m trying! Always new stuff going on at slimming world! Heres hoping this time next yearI will actually be a target member and look and feel a lot better.
