Another 0.5lb on, making me 1lb above target. Still in range though, but I must get back in the groove.
Today was our group’s Woman of the Year competition. I was shocked during the past week to receive a letter telling me I’d been nominated. I managed to find a couple of photos of me in the bad old days, wrote a bit of a blurb (which I duly ignored and winged it) and thought “not a hope in hell”.
There were 5 of us to do our thing in front of everyone else. Standing up in front of people to speak is NOT my favourite thing. My mind went blank and, as I said above, I winged it – severely editing the 2.5 sides of A4 I’d prepared down to not even a side. Musta done something right because I WON!!!!!!!!! I was presented with a sash, a certificate and an orchid. Took me a few minutes to stop shaking.
I’ve no idea what comes next, though there is a national final. My consultant will fill me in later.
So, if any of you are struggling with your weight I can recommend SW. I haven’t found it difficult to follow, and it’s got me from eating 5 a year to 5 (or more) a day. If it can do that for me it can help anyone. If you already belong to a group, then try to stay to the chat bit after weigh in. That’s what I put my success down to (and my stubborn-ness when I really want to do something).
And remember, above all, this is not a temporary change to your eating regime. No, it’s meant as a lifetime commitment. If what you were eating before was gonna keep the weight off it would have done. It didn’t work then, it won’t work now. Not that I’m 100% on plan at all times. I have the odd day off here and there, and the odd day where I’m part on and part off. Any questions, please ask.
