I’m still fighting the fat but I’ve been incredibly busy over the last couple of months. I won’t bore you with the details of what I’ve been busy with (although if you enjoy photography you might want to take a look at one of the reasons – Spectrum: A photography exhibition hosted by myself and fellow students at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. On until the 26th June). However, my crammed schedule has meant that I:
a) Haven’t had any time for my blog; and
b) haven’t had as much time as I’d like/need to devote to my weight-loss.
As a result, my weight has remained pretty static – small losses and small gains – and currently stands at 12st 1.5lb following a fab Hen Weekend in Liverpool last weekend.
Two main things have spurred me on to restart my weight-loss efforts:
1) My leader has pointed out that it’s only 29 weeks until Christmas! I vowed that this would be the year I’d finally get to goal so I really need to get a wriggle on.
2) In my Weight Watchers meeting, we have been developing our own visual representations of our weight-loss. I’ve used glass candle holders and red glass beads. The 2 smaller jars show the weight I have left to lose (22lb) and I’ll be moving a bead for each pound lost into the ‘lbs shed’ jar. The larger jar holds a glass bead for each pound I’ve lost so far on my Weight Watchers Journey – 21lb. I’m really looking forward to moving my first bead (or maybe even beads…) into the ‘lbs shed jar next week.
I’ve got some more recipes ready to post in the next couple of weeks and I’ll also be writing a blog about getting my priorities straight (I may need your help and advice with that one!) so please keep an eye out for them.
Thanks for reading.
PS What visuals do you use to help record your weigh-loss?
