I went back to my local Slimming World class last Wednesday.
It was a bit nervous going into class but as always my leader Sharon was very welcoming and put me at ease.
I stayed for the body image talk and picked up some great meal ideas, my favourite being the bbq pulled pork which you can buy from Tesco (frozen) for just £3.50. Its completely free on extra easy too :) I've decided to stick to extra easy as it really is the most simplest plan to follow.
I was mortified when I stepped on the scale. I really didn't think id weigh as much as I did. I was totally shocked and gutted. I left class and cried all the way home.
When I got in, I sat down and made a list of reasons why I'm doing this and why I want to change. I want to feel good about myself and love my body, as every woman should. I recognise I've gone around in circles the past 5 years, and I refuse to do this any longer.
I've felt so low about my body in the past few months. There are parts I like, but more parts that I hate and this needs to change. I want to love all of it. So this is what i'll be working on along with losing weight.
So far this week Ive made some lovely meals and I've enjoyed every one. I need to keep eating a variety so that I don't get bored though, as that happens pretty quick with me.
I've tried out some quorn products this week, the quorn burgers and mexican spicy bean burger. Both were tasty and filling, will definately use these going forward.
I'm enjoying posting my food pics on Instagram too!
A shopping trip to Cardiff yesterday made me realise that I want to be able to just pick out what I want to wear, rather than buying clothes that just fit. I am sick of it. I will get there though.
I shall leave you with some pictures from this week.
