Well hello there!
What a weeks it’s been. I am British and therefore obsessed with the weather – and this weeks weather has been atrocious! Torrential downpours have lead to a leaky roof, fence panels lying obliterated on the lawn, oh and the boiler decided to pack up on Sunday – what joy! And what an expensive start to the year! Fortunately the rain stopped in time for me to walk to my meeting, in Haslemere, last night. I hate to think how much ‘water in your hair’ weighs 😉 !
So yes I went to Haslemere group again last night. Earlier in the week I had decided to go back to Liphook and my friend had offered to take me. However on the day she told me she could only go for the weigh in and not stay for the meeting – which is fair enough, but kind of defeated the purpose of my going back to the old group. I wanted to stay for the Image Thearapy – I am in no doubt that its is this thats helped me come so far already – so I decided to go to Haslemere again.
I lost 1lb this week – not quite the 2.5lb I had been hoping for , but then if I am honest with myself I havent really been feeling it this week. I think the whole hoo haa with the groups and the not being back into our routine yet (toddler groups all start again next week) has left me without some of last years focus. However, a pound off is a pound off. It’s absolutely going in the right direction and I’m happy with that.
The Haslmere group is enormous compared to Liphook and the collective total for last nights losses was 109lb! Everyone had such amazing first weeks and it was heartening to hear. When it came to my “1lb off” it sounded a little pathetic next to the 4, 5, 7, 12 (yes someone lost 12lb in one week!) lb of the first weekers. Then Sara read out my total loss and a collective “wow” went round the room. Suddently 1lb seemed so much more! That made me smile.
A friend of mine said part of my journey was to inspire others and I am totally down with that idea. But even after last night, I’m still not sure with which group my journey lies. Maybe it’s both?
Anyway for the coming week, I want to focus much more on being honest with myself about what I’m eating and will be keeping a food diary again, even if just for a week, to help me achive that. My goal for this week is to lose 1.5lb. This will bring my total loss back to 4 Stone. I think thats a realistic target for the week.
Have a great week
