I’m back on the Slimming world train

Choo! Choo!

I can be quite a spontaneous person & I am known {to my husband, mostly!} for making impulsive decisions. And do you know what? It’s actually quite a fun way to be. So last week I made another on the spot ‘what the hell’ decision and that was to rejoin Slimming world.

I have been on the slimming world programme before and that was about a year before I got hitched to my darling man. No diets had ever worked previously for me and believe me, I tried a few! However, with SW I did manage to lose 2st and I went from a size 18 to a size 16. I felt amazing.

Queue a boost in my confidence. 

Anyways, we got married. I clearly got far too comfortable and the weight started to creep back on and my decision to rejoin Slimming world was all down to this photo…
When I took this photo, it was purely for the comedic purpose of me being a complete dork because my glasses matched those of Betty Boop. Dorky, right? I found it amusing but when I looked at the photo all I saw was my baby bag hanging out ever-so-casually from beneath my t-shirt. Eeeww. I am still in my size 16 jeans, which is a blessing in disguise. However, my problem areas are without a doubt my boobs, bum & belly {with a little back fat thrown in there}.

So I decided to rejoin Slimming world and clearly the P.T.B {Powers that Be} were aligned because it just so happened on the very day I decided to rejoin, there was a local meeting that evening. I did a quick google search and found a free membership voucher in a women’s magazine and before I knew it, I was standing back on those scales.

It turns out that I hadn’t put on as much weight as I thought I had. I certainly felt a whole lot heavier but thankfully the scales told another story. On my first night back at Slimming world I weighed 13st 1lb and after my first weigh-in a week later I managed to lose 2lbs! As you can imagine I was thrilled and am trying to achieve the same at this week’s weigh-in. I’ll check in with you later this week to let you know how I did and how I am trying to loss the pounds. 

Starting weight: 13st 1lb
Current weight: 12st 13lb
Target weight: 11st

Loss so far: 2lbs

    Aww, I think that picture is cute! But I know how it feels to see yourself in an image and not be happy, so good for you for making a change rather than feeling stuck. Good luck with it!

    I need to go from a size 14 to a size 10-12 and have lost momentum… 🙁

    Ohh big well done for that first loss and you moved into the next stone bracket, that is always a biggie for me. Good luck on this journey and I think spontaneity sounds cool too. Mich x #slimmingsunday

    Well done for the making the decision to go back, it’s funny how we’re so self-critical isn’t it? I think you look great in that photo but I know what you mean about being comfortable with your own appearance. Great loss so far Debs, well done.. x

    Thanks for linking up with #SlimmingSunday
