The great re-joinaholic
Well its that time of year again, Festive lights, slinky dresses, winter woolies. Central heating creating a tropical environment in houses and shops.
If it aint enough to be a bit chubby already then don a cable knit sweater dress 40 denier opaque tights to enhance my tree trunks and off I go.. its a full on chub fest! within 10 mins i feel like clawing myself out of the clothes and going au natural as my body heat creates a shrinking effect with the wool.. cue claustrophic panic attack..Something has to be done.
I have been trundling along kind of dieting on my own for months ..all wk - kind of eating takeaways at the weekend bolstering myself that its all good and running every other day :D After hearing that some of you great girls have stated weightwatchers and that a girl has a challenge well.. I thought maybe I should pull my finger out and join in and drop some fat. you can view Jess's channel here - she is very inspirational
I have the exercising sorted.. now on wk 5 of the running program so its just the food side of it to take in hand.
I rejoined weight watchers this morning which was surreal for a couple of reasons.
1. I am 1.5lbs lighter than the last time I had a ww weigh in! bonus. 5 months and no gain!
2. It was like going back in time because everything was exactly the same even the people. The class I go to is full of older women, or girls with scrunchie pony tails and prams full of kids screaming.. I feel a bit out of place and none of them looked noticably slimmer than when I was last there in May. I dont stay for the meetings as by the time the weighing in is done and the meeting gets going it can be over an hr and a half of sitting around. I have never found them motivating. The leader has lost a stone and admits she has a hard time keeping it off and doesnt really give you the oompft you are looking for.
So here is my starting weight
I am on 21 points a day
Ive been set a 5% goal for shoot for which will take me to 11 stone.. Any more than 8lbs to aim for at present seams so unattainable and will have me diving into the cake tin as quick as a flash.. so its baby steps..
