slimming world walk of shame

I stood on the scales for the first time in 6 months today. SHOCKED does not even begin to describe how I feel. I’ve managed to put on 2 stones whilst pretending to be following Slimming World.

2 years ago I successfully lost a decent amount of weight on Slimming World. I was slimmer than I had been for years. Keep going to group they said. It’s the only way to keep it off they said. And did I listen? Well no.

I kept most of the weight off for a good year by doing the 80/20 idea. 80% of the time I was completely on plan. 20% of the time I could do what I liked. This slowly crept into 30%, 40% and now I’m pretty much going for broke most of the time, with the odd Slimming World meal here and there for good measure.

And so here I am, older, no more wiser, and nearly 3 stones heavier than I would like to be. I feel awful, I look awful and I’m quickly running out of clothes that fit me (dear God I’ve actually been looking at my old maternity clothes wondering if they will do!).

I need help. I know going to a Slimming World group will help. It kept me in check before and I hope it will work again.

Now I’ve just got to pluck up the courage and take the walk of shame back to Slimming World.

If there is anyone else out there returning to Slimming World give me a wave!
