My weight has been something that I have always struggled with. I have tried all of the diets including the 5:2 diet and Slimming World. All of which have been unsuccessful. As a last resort, I decided to join Weight Watchers in February.
For those of you that are not familiar with Weight
Watchers, unlike lots of other diets, it’s all about portion control. To sum it up, you are given a certain amount of points to eat every day. Extra points are available to spend on extra treats throughout the week and every food has a point value.
For the first two months, I was doing really well. I was exercising at least three or four times every week and was strictly sticking to the diet too. In total, I had lost 12&1/2 pounds and I was buzzing!
Unfortunately, after indulging in lots of sweet treats across the Easter weekend, I fell off track. Skip forward four weeks and I’ve finally decided to get back on it. I rejoined my group yesterday and over these four weeks, I gained 6&1/2 pounds. At first, I was really annoyed with myself (even though I had expected a bigger gain) but I’ve decided to use this as motivation to work extra hard and lose the weight.
My target overall is to lose nearly four stone and I’d really love to lose this by my birthday in December which I understand is aiming high. But, if I don’t aim high then I’ll never achieve it.
So, every week I’ll be using my blog to document my Weight Watchers journey, share recipes and hopefully meet others also on the Weight Watchers journey.
Wish me luck!
