Hope you all had an awesome weekend, I had a super busy fun weekend, one which involved far too much food!! especially sugar, I felt like I was dying Saturday night from all the sugar, so won’t be doing that again in a hurry!
I even got to ride on a proper school bus for the first time ever – I know I am easily pleased!!
As you will know I started going back to weight watchers meetings 4 weeks ago, but wasn’t overly impressed with my leader or the meeting. She was not very motivating and the class hardly spoke, there were no rounds of applause for achievements and I would come away feeling deflated. Part of me wants to blame this on the fact I didn’t try very hard the last few weeks. I love getting positive recognition (who doesn’t?!), so when I got my charm last week it felt really unimportant as no-one clapped and I thought ‘what’s the point?’ I know I need to make this whole journey about me and doing it for me, but a little help along the way would be nice.
Anyway… yesterday morning I had a dentist appointment that I booked a few months ago, so I was unable to go to the Monday morning meeting, so I went online to see my other options, quitting did cross my mind, but luckily that thought passed quickly. The next available meeting was 9am on Tuesday, and I noticed the leader had a lot of meetings, so I guessed she must be good.
Went to the meeting today, and as soon as I walked in the door there was so much positive energy, the room was buzzing, during the meeting I counted 51 members, and a few more came in nearer the end. The leader was so energetic and inspiring and she was awesome at interacting with the members, and there were lots of rounds of applause too. I came away feeling so motivated, and I want to be the person who gets a round of applause from all those awesome people some time soon.
So the numbers….
Previous weigh in: 280
Today’s weigh in: 282
Total loss: 23lbs
Four weeks of meetings and an overall gain of 1.6lbs is not acceptable! I KNOW I CAN DO THIS.
A gain of 2lb this week which I totally deserved. I left the meeting and went straight to the grocery store and stocked up on fruit and veg, and I am going to sit down and plan some amazing meals. The group is doing a 5k next week and I plan to join them and am super excited about it.
I had high hopes to be at 250lbs before Hawaii and Fitbloggin, which are in 4 and 5 weeks time, guess that won’t be the case, but I hope to be much closer then than I am now.
There is still a few hours left to enter my giveaway for the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred DVD.
Do you go to meetings? Hoe do you feel it affects your journey?
Have a great week
