Oh dear! I've been slipping for quite a while now and it's been a bit like one step forward and 10 steps back. My heart hasn't really been in it. I had missed class for various reasons, mainly due to being away for a few weekends and as my class is on a saturday, with working fulltime, sometimes a saturday can be busy with appts etc. So today I stood on my own scales and saw that I was probably going to be about 3 or 4lbs heavier than the last time I went. I know the diet, I know what to do, what to eat etc so thought to myself that as my heart wasn't in it, I would probably be better giving the class up and just plodding along doing it myself and saving myself the £5 each week. Although I did feel quite guilty about giving up. However, a quick chat with my pal Karen who also goes to Slimming World, changed my mind and I was back to class before I knew it and feeling motivated again to carry on. Sometimes when you slip it's quite hard to get back into it, and I find that when hubby is home it just all goes right out the window! However - I'M BACK and am raring to give it another go!! I only have 4.5lbs to take me into the next stone bracket - so if I could manage that before I go on holiday I'll be quite happy! As I've said before, I'm def taking the scenic route and my journey is such a slow one - but I'll just keep chipping away at it and hopefully one day will be a size and shape that I'm much happier with and a lot more confident about. Onwards and upwards!!
