Did I mention I'm trying to get to target? I am on the very same journey as my members. I know the plan inside out but I still have my weaknesses. I've been really happy over the last few months to have been basically maintaining. I've been somewhere between 10 stone 2 and 10 Stone 4. I've found a balance & know what to do to stay at my target weight... when I get there.
So I really want to get there. I have a fire in my belly & now I really really want it. I'm currently 6 pounds away from my target. Well hopefully less by now but that's what I was based on last week's weigh in.
My target weight is 9 stone 11.5 which is bang on my 5 stone award. It's a personal achievement I really want to, well, achieve
My normal weight was always in or around 16 Stone. So overall I've probably lost closer to 6 Stone but I had lost a bit of weight before I joined Slimming World at 14 stone 11.5 & I reeeeeally want to get my 5 stone award & my target.
The truth is I am happy as I am now. People often ask me would I not just call target now & be happy. But my 5 stone award was always my target & it's important to me. It will give me that wiggle room that means if and when I am up a few pounds after a weekend, holiday or Xmas I will still feel good. You have to live and there will always be times that I will gain weight. I'm more than Ok with that because its normal.
So I wanted to show you the breakfast I've just enjoyed while my husband and son are off having a nice Saturday morning breaky. I didn't go because quite frankly I'd have found it too tempting today. I vowed to have 1 weekend with no take away or eating out to help keep me focused on sticking to plan 100%. I usually have the majority of my weekly syns on a Saturday and tbh I don't recommend this to anyone. It's definitely better and healthier for your mind and body to have your syns daily. Hey, nobody is perfect though right?
Soooo, I stayed home and made my own version of what I would have loved to order. Ya gotta do what you gotta do!
I had a good chat with @slimwithpippa & @slimwithlynne (and more recently @slimwithderek ) & I am determined to be a target member very very soon. Watch this space - 14 minutes ago
