So about a month ago I posted this, where I said that I needed to sort out a few things. One of these things was to join the gym. Well after a month I finally got the money together to pay for a years membership in the Kingfisher in Renmore and with where I work I was entitled to a €100 discount so that was a real clincher for me.
Last Wednesday week I went to the slimming world meeting and after a week that I though had been OK, not have been over doing it on anything that I shoudn’t have, I was up 2lbs. I was disgusted with myself even to the point where I said to the poor lady who was wieghting me “ah, fuck this shit I’m fed up of it now and couldn’t be arsed anymore” and then stormed off. I was just so frustrated with it that needed to vent about it.
After this, the next 3 days where a disaster for any kind of weight loss. I ate and drank all around me. It was the Saturday evening after and I was sitting at home watching telly. While I was sat there eating subway, bags of sweets and an icecream,obviously still feeling sorry for myself, I got a phone call that I wasn’t expecting. It was Jackie, the group leader from slimming world. It was the best call that I had gotten all week. We chatted for only a short while, 10 – 15 mins, but Jackie talked me through where I was having problems and ways around them. So that was when I coped myself on. I was good from then on.
I went to group on Wednesday and decided that I was going to start the whole thing like I was brand new to the group. I went to the new members desk, sat in on the talk that explains the diet to you and even stayed to group, which I had only done once, the first week after I had started. I got weighted expecting to be up because of all the stuff I had in the few days after my strop, and I was. I was up 1.5lbs. Back to my original starting weight.
So with a fresh mind on it, a new year long gym membership, I am all set and ready to go. I have been very good over the last few days, have been to the gym 3 times this week already with my goal of getting to the gym a minimum of 3 times each week I would say that I am off to a flying start.
I am working on creating the new page to track my weight loss and hope to have it up within the next week, it will have a tracker sheet on it that will show my progress, even over the last few months so that you can see where I was going and where I am going.
I have set a goal, which I think is very achievable, to have lost a stone before my sisters wedding on the 17th of November, which is 6 weeks from yesterday. So that means that I need to loose the stone by the Wednesday before so that it registers on the scale at the slimming world group.
So from here it’s onwards and downwards, on the scale that is.
