My Slimming Journey 

So following the miscarriage I didn’t focus on what I was eating or drinking so all the amazing work I’d put in prior to the wedding (3 stone loss) slowly crept back up. 

Until the point where you realise your trousers don’t quite fit and to keep buying new clothes just isn’t ok anymore. It’s time to stop. 

So here I am again. Back on a slimming journey. Naturally we have for the last year been trying to get pregnant again but so far no success. Maybe it’s the pressure. Maybe it’s the gaining weight. Maybe just not my time. We don’t know. But all I know is I was almost 2 stone lighter last time and healthier. So if I fix and focus on that maybe the other will get the hint and we get some good news…. 

We are also moving house! I’m so excited to be buying a dream house. What I’ve called ‘Pinterest House’ so as you can see things are hectic to say the least. 

I figure if I can take control of one part of my life the other parts will somehow follow suit. 

So I’m just finished week one of Slimming World and I’m so over the moon to report I’ve lost a massive 4lbs. Honestly I can’t believe it. 

When I was doing it for the wedding I don’t think I ever had that big a loss. So what I am doing differently. Well firstly I’m doing it all online. With work, the move and everything else I just don’t have time for classes. So to give me the Image Therapy side of the meetings I’ve created a new online community using Instagram and Facebook. If I photograph everything I eat it will help me stay on track as I have to declare it. 

Also having your food diary digital you can’t fudge your totals. It is what it is. Your more focused on your amount of speedy foods and Syns. Well… my theory anyway. Let’s see how next week pans out….

I will be writing a weekly (ish) update on here too.
