Last week I returned to Slimming World after having a few weeks ‘off’, which is a bit pathetic considering I only joined in July. I stood up in group and resembling someone at an AA meeting, I declared my addiction (to chocolate). I vowed to return the following week having lost enough weight to earn a sparkly sticker. I’m still trying to figure out whether that was more about my addiction to stationary but either way, I won’t be getting the sticker. In the last 5 days I have had a Chinese takeaway, chip shop lunch, afternoon tea, a full English breakfast, all the pink plates Yo Sushi has to offer & enough bread to fill a small bakery. Not the greatest of starts it would seem.
I don’t think I can face the embarrassment of going back tomorrow and getting on the scales after my big speech. Since starting Slimming World I have gained weight almost every week. There should be a sticker for that kind of commitment surely?! My running instructor has always told me that consistency is key but somehow, I don’t think that’s the type of consistency he had in mind. Who joins a weight management group & comes away heavier than they did when they first joined?! Well me apparently.
I can’t blame Slimming World for my weight gain & I joined because it has worked for a lot of people I know. I think I’ve just about run out of excuses so it’s time to give it a proper go. One thing is for sure and that’s eating what you want, when you want and doing so whether you are hungry or not isn’t a plan that has worked for me. For those who want to gain 3 stone though, give it a go!
