Back in the zone.......


One of my early posts on this blog was lamenting my lack of staying power when it comes to weight loss. I want, more than anything to shed this surplus weight, for more reasons than just looking good!!


Well, after two weeks away from my Slimming World group, I returned this morning to yet another 1/2lb GAIN!!!! How ridiculous is that!! I am capable of so much better!!


The upside of this is that I now feel back in 'the zone' - motivated & able to say "NO"!!! I have stuck to plan today & hit my 'daily 5' (fruit & veg!!) before midday!!!


I have printed off this photo of myself (about 20 years old I know) to stick on the fridge door. I'm hoping a visual reminder of the figure I'd like to have again, will stop me falling off the wagon!!


The sad thing is, at the time that photo was taken I thought I was so FAT!!! - Oh! to be that fat again!!



Some Blog Candy to be won here.....

What a beautiful photo of you! I know what you mean about the visual motivation. I hung two bikinis in my bathroom as a reminder that I will be going to the beach in a few weeks and will be required to don some form of swimsuit. Thought that would be fantastic motivation...NOT! While I've been extrememly diligent with my workouts, I have been unsuccessful at reigning in my appetite. And the sad thing is, I eat even when I'm not hungry. BUT! Much like you, I have a new resolve. We CAN do this! Wishing you luck, my friend!
