Tuesday, October 7

First weigh in

It's Tuesday! That might be stating the obvious, but Tuesday is Slimming World Class day. I had no idea how much I'd lost this week as my scales aren't working, so off I toddled to the class to weigh in.

I've lost 3 and a 1/2 pounds in my first week. I have to admit, I was disappointed. Usually in your first week of any weight loss plan, you lose quite a substantial amount and I was expecting to lose about 5 or 6 pounds.. but that said, 3 and 1/2 pounds is a good weight loss. I texted my mum to tell her and she told me off LOL. She said this is the new me, not a competition with the old me and to stop comparing my weight loss to previous losses. She's right! Any amount off is a loss, and as a visual aid to see what 3 and a 1/2 pounds looks like, I've made up this image. Each block is 1 pound of fat.

Gross isn't it!!! bleugh. I was carrying that around spread over my body. ewwww. I'm sure it was on my boobs! It's a woman thing, but you know when your bra is a little bit small for you and you sort of pop out in the middle? well, my boobs seem to stay in my bra already LOL. With that in mind, I am now looking forward to when my arse no longer hangs out of my knickers LOL

And so on to a new week. I think I'm going to try and get myself a bit more organised and plan meals for the week. That way I don't have to think about food all the time, I'll already know what to prepare for any given day, and I won't have to walk around the supermarket looking at all the high fat, high calorie foods.

The slimming group is great fun to be honest. It's so full of characters. We had such a good laugh. I feel quite at home there because there are no airs and graces. Everyone is just down to earth but up for a laugh, and we're all struggling with the same problem.

It's nice to be around adults again.
