Today was my first weigh in at Slimming World. After much stress the night before and filling in a food diary all week. I arrived and checked in to find I had lost 3 lbs. I was delighted as its better than nothing considering the huge overhaul in our eating habits. For me getting to my first half stone achievement is the current goal.
Although I have been generally more active In the week I have not set aside time to formally boost my cardiovascular rate. I began this week by walking back from the meeting which was a 30 minute walk. Now I just need to repeat this twice more this week in order to fulfil the criterion of exercising 3 times a week.
The meetings will need getting used to and I hope next week to do just as well but nature isn’t linear so the most I can hope for is no major disaster. I feel encouraged and will continue to take ownership of my health this week with healthier food choices and more physical activity.
Thank you. With 10 years of gaining weight, it going to take getting used to losing it.
