Going Back To Slimming World After Christmas

I went back to Slimming World last night. It wasn't something I was looking forward to doing because I have completely been off plan since I last weighed in the day before Christmas Eve. It seems so long ago now and at that weigh-in, I had lost 7lbs. I knew Christmas was coming and I couldn't ignore the goodies in the house for Matilda and Kim, So it was hard not to dip into the chocolates and crisps etc. So I decided 'Bugger it!' I am going to enjoy Christmas because it's no good being miserable and worrying about what I am eating. So that's what I did.

I have spent over two weeks, eating rubbish food, drinking alcohol and this morning, I didn't know whether to go back to Slimming World or not, I didn't know if I could face the embarrassment of putting on so much weight. After all, I had been eating rubbish for the past two weeks. My diet has been chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I actually really fought with my conscience as to whether I was fighting a losing battle by going back to Slimming World. I went to bed last night still undecided if I had the willpower to go back to Slimming World, not knowing what to do.

Hey, I went back! And I am so happy that I did. I had gained 4.5 lbs, but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as I had expected. I thought I would have gained about 10 lbs. I am glad to have gone back because if I hadn't I would have thought that I would carry on eating what I wanted and carried on gaining weight. I decided that I would draw a line under Christmas and New Year, It was a new year and we had a new book to start using so it was like starting afresh. Gaining 4.5 lbs isn't too bad and I can easily lose that weight again within a week or two. I am still over 2 stone lighter than I was in September when I joined the group and I am so happy with my loss so far. I had started to feel more tired and fed up as my body was being filled with crap and unhealthy food. I didn't feel pretty and I kind of got the attitude that I had blown it anyway, so why stop eating sweets. I knew it had to stop. I was so much happier in myself when I was on the plan.

Today I started my new book, it's been 50 years since Slimming World started so they have revamped it, given us all new books and here I am with a brand new and clean slate, ready to carry on with 2019 as I finished 2018.
