Checking on the calendar, it’s pretty much a year to the date of when I started at Slimming World.
Ideally at this point, I would take the time to review my progress over the year, but I haven’t actually been to class for the last 5 weeks, and I’ve been off-plan for all of that time.
So instead of celebrating my success, I am facing a return to class later today with a definite weight gain of probably a stone, or maybe even more. Because when I fall off-plan, it’s not by a little bit, it’s by a lot!
I could blame my downfall on a number of things – a 10 day holiday to America, a week-long business trip, and a 3-day work event where food and treats were provided – but these activities didn’t force me off-plan. That was my decision. And although it’s difficult to eat healthily when away from home, it’s not impossible – and it’s certainly not an excuse for the ton of chocolate and crisps I’ve eaten lately!
But instead of dwelling on the past, I’m going to move forward. I’m returning to my Slimming Class this evening, and will face my weight gain on the scales – and then I’ll just get on with the business of undoing the damage.
The good thing is that I know that my consultant will be there 100% to support me as I initiate what I’m calling my “Anniversary Reboot”.
I know what I need to do to get back on-plan. And my determination to lose weight has returned. So hopefully, from today forward, I’ll be back on track!
