I lost 3lb this week and whilst I was very happy with the loss, it wasn't until I was filling in my weight loss chart and wrote 397 pounds did I realise what a huge milestone this is for me.
I really wasn't happy being over 400lb and I know it's only 3lb away, it's a huge deal mentally. It's given me a boost and I really can't wait to lose 4lb for my 3 stone award and then another 2lb for my club 10 award :D
I really am committed to getting to target this time and keeping it off for good. It's been 14 weeks since I joined and I've lost every week. I'm never hungry, I never feel deprived of anything, I have everything I want and instead of eating everything in sight because I could, I now eat what's important to me; for example, I was doing the shopping list for Christmas dinner and automatically put cranberry sauce on the list. I checked the syn value and decided there were lots of other lovely things I'd rather spend my syns on than cranberry sauce on Christmas day! Before, I would have eaten it because it was tradition and I wouldn't have given the chocolate, alcohol, nuts, crisps and everything else we have at Christmas, a second thought, I would have eaten the lot.
Now I know that what's important to me on Christmas day is a few glasses of Baileys and some chocolate. If I can spend my syns on those and stay on track I'll enjoy Christmas and enjoy the loss I plan on having at the next weigh in!
This is the quote I got when I put my results in the Slimming World website and I totally agree with it being a journey, not a destination and I know that with the help of SW and the people in my weekly group, I can enjoy the journey :o)
