Hey everyone 🙂
Today was my 13th weigh in, unlucky for some but not for me! I usually weigh in on a Wednesday afternoon but i was on a training course most of yesterday so decided to weigh in today at the 11.30 group & i am very, very, extremely happy to report that i lost 2lb! Which also means that i got my 2 stone award as well as my Club 10 award (eeek 2 more certificates for my fridge, get in!) I am absolutely ecstatic as i’d had a pretty bad weekend so was expecting a maintain at best but it just shows that getting back on plan can really make a difference to your week and can really turn it around. I still find it so hard to believe that i’ve lost 2 stone (yep, me! Who’d have thought it ay?) and lost 10% of my starting body weight, it’s just amazing the difference being on Slimming World can make and to think that it’s only been 13 short weeks, it just makes me even more excited at the thought of where i could be in another 13 weeks time or where i could be by Christmas, i could be like a whole new person & that’s really exciting 🙂
I can already feel so many changes both physically & mentally. I look at myself in the mirror each day and i can see myself that my body shape is changing and that it’s not as big as it used to be, i’m actually out today wearing a white tshirt (which is a double shock as i always avoid having my arms out & i usually avoid wearing white due to it’s delightful fattening effect) and i feel comfortable, 13 weeks ago there was no way you’d have caught me in anything less than a 3/4 sleeve and god forbid that i would actually feel comfortable! I just feel so much better in myself and can’t wait for things to keep getting better.
I also think the mental side of things is just as important (if not more) as how you think and feel can really affect you in so many ways, like i said i’m already feeling more comfortable in my own skin, now when i walk down the street i don’t keep my eyes on the floor in the fear of someone actually realising that i exist and then shouting out the word ‘fat’ or something else just as lovely, i walk with my head held high and i know that if anyone does have anything negative to say i can smile knowing the fact that i’m doing something about it, knowing that i am in control of changing my own life. 13 weeks ago i took the plunge and joined Slimming World which was such a big leap for me & even then i still didn’t believe in myself, i expected to try and fail (just like i think i will in everything that i do) but being on this journey has shown me that i can do it! I can & i bloody well will 🙂
I can’t even imagine how many people out there are on the same journey as me and who are having the same experiences & feelings so i just want to say that no matter how you feel you are most definitely not on your own and i really encourage people to look in the mirror and find positive things about themselves and to just remember why they embarked on this journey & to remember how far they’ve come from that very 1st day.

How is everyone else feeling this week, any successful weigh in’s or good vibes they want to share?
