Step Back and Recollect….
Firstly I apologise for my lack of posts March has been a busy month for my work place. I am still here and still cooking away….
Still losing weight though…. well it’s touch and go but I have had a lot on. I did laugh uncontrollably recently at class as some of the members were talking about being on holiday and putting weight; one lady was away for a week and put on 7lb, another was away for five days and gained 4lb. Then there was me hiding my face in my top laughing – I went to Newcastle 18th March to 19th March and I gained 4lb. One bloody day, but it was a great bloody day – I somehow became struct down with Slimming World amnesia. Syns???? What are syns????
That was March and we are now in April and I think I still have a dose of Slimming World amnesia – not good. I don’t know if anyone else experiences this but I’m also at the point where my eyes are visually getting familiar with my current shape and because I haven’t lost much weight of recent. I feel like ‘yuk’ ‘I’m still massive’ or ‘have I even lost weight’.
It’s at this point that my wee Facebook guardian angel pinged my phone with a memory from my birthday celebrations two years ago and that’s when I cringe seeing old photos like these. Squint my eyes to part look at it and part hide from what size I had been. So as I do I done a wee comparison then and now collage and it does put things into perspective for you. I knew from the first day I joined Slimming World I had a long road ahead and there has been so many times I have given myself unrealistic expectations and other times I was just a greedy git and could have lost so much more than I have. I have still lost a lot though and I am sure of one thing I am not going back there.
Sometime you need to look back to see how far you’ve come and sometimes the road ahead doesn’t seem as long.
Stay strong and believe in yourself because as the glamorous RuPaul says ‘If you don’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else’ – ‘can I get an Amen???’
