I’ve been doing Slimming World for 8 weeks now, and so far it has worked incredibly well. I’ve lost a total of 2 stones 5 pounds, which is amazing!
If I can lose a further 2 lbs in the coming week, I’ll have reached 2½ stones, just ahead of going on holiday the week after.
For the last 2 months I’ve been really strict about following the plan every day, and have kept within my syn quota. And when we go away, I don’t want to undo all of the good work. But I feel a small (controlled) blow out might be in order. After all, it is a holiday!
I was chatting to the misses the other day, and wondered out loud whether it’s possible to achieve an award – such as the 2½ stone award – and then put on some weight, lose it again, and be awarded the same award a second time. Sadly it’s not possible. They don’t celebrate the second or third time you achieve a target – otherwise you could be winning the same award every other week!
So I’m thinking that I might end up putting on a few pounds during the holiday. But once I’m back it’ll be back on plan for the rest of the year.
I have this interim target to lose 4 stones ahead of my friend’s wedding at the end of December. That would take me to 20 stones in weight, and – I’m hoping – ensure that I can fit in the suit I got married in just over 3 years ago.
