This is a picture of me taken the weekend before I started weight watchers. As you can guess I am the one on the right.

Oops I had my first slip

Oh well I suppose it had to happen at some time but I wasn't expecting it to be on my 4th day back on track. After my previous post yesterday I went and absolutely gorged myself, not a good idea this early on. On the upside I have been bacn track today and have managed to save a couple of points and I have also done another session on the wii fit. Used 290Kcal today so that is another step closer to the challenge of getting 7000Kcal of in a month.

I just need to draw line under yesterday and accept that it happened and get on with it. I am still hoping for a reasonable loss by the time that I get on the scales on Thursday. I am hoping that because it is my first week my body will be adjusting so much that my overeat won't show.

New Challenges

Hello all my lovely followers.

Well I have managed to keep myself on track now for 3 days and that has been quite an achievement for me at the moment as I have fell off the wagon and let it disappear into the distance and that has been tha case for the last year really. But anyay now I am back on track I decided that I needed to join a WW challenge to keep me going and I have joined the 7000kcal challenge. This challenge basically means that I need to try and work off 7000Kcal in a month. Sounds painul I know.

Well, I have made a start, I got the Wii fit out and have just done a really good workout for the first time in ages. I worked out that to achieve my challenge this month I need to work off around 225Kcal every day, I am pleased to say that I have just worked off 287Kcal today so I am on my way.

I will keep you updated but would be very happy if any other 5+ to lose people wanted to join in as the challenge has lots of very fit and healthy people taking part and it scares me.

A large kick up the backside

I have finally got fed up at playing around with this weight loss thing. I have given myself a large kick up the rear and re-started my weight loss journey. I have changed my weigh in day so that I feel I have a new aim to focus on and I am trying to give myself some new weight loss goals to aim at.

I am going away in September and I would like to get myself back down to 18st by the time I go. It has been a long time since I have been that weight and we are going somewhere where there is lots of beautiful scenery and I want to make the most of that and be able to go for long walks in the countryside without feeling really uncomfortable. I know it is a large task as I currently weigh 19st 5lbs but I also know that I tend to lose lots in my first few weeks.

I am trying to prepare myself for the hurdles that I know are approaching but also those which I am not. I am going for an important family meal on Friday and I know I am not going to point up my meal. But I am also determined to make sensible choices in the days leading up to that meal and after it. I also have a lunch out in August but so far that is all I need to plan for. I know that things will turn up which will make this hard but I also know that I can deal with them if I keep myself positive and adapt

I can and will do this. This is the last time I start WW but will be the first time I get to goal.
