Battle of the baby bulge is not something I have written about for a little while, mostly as I lost enough weight to rebuild my confidence a little, and that was enough at the time.
Then, a photograph taken by my son as I lounged on the sofa, captured the truth, while I had lost weight, I was far away from where I want to be. I’m not going to share that photo with you just yet, as I’m not feeling brave enough! I’m proud that I have not gained any weight, but frustrated that while I could have been almost at my goal, I stopped – gave up – half way.
I am a great believer in losing weight slowly and steadily, and I suppose the very fact there are has been no gain should prove something, but not enough. So, I’m back on my journey, and I have a 6 week countdown. I’m trying out Thinking Slimmer, which is also hoping to help me tackle my terrible addiction to all things sugary, put cake in front of me and I struggle to not eat it.. especially if I am stressed or over tired. I don’t necessarily enjoy every bite, and I’m not sure I’d say they are my favourite foods, they’re just the ones I battle with.
So, I’ve weighed myself today and recorded my weight. I’m going to follow a healthy diet over the week, listen to the slimpod each night as well as keep up my exercise up, and I’ll update you next week properly!
