I have mentioned my fibromyalgia briefly before but I felt it would be a good idea to actually write a post about it and share my experiences with you. Whilst I know everyone is different I also hope that my experiences help to show one persons experiences of how fibromyalgia can be and how it can change over time. View Post
It will be four years in January that I first joined Slimming World and started my weight loss journey. Back in 2014 I never imagined that I would get to my target weight and could only have dreamed of being a size 6-8. I achieved that though and really surprised myself. I kept the weight off predominantly for around 16 months but then slowly things started going downhill. I have never given up my journey entirely and continued to weigh in most weeks but things were going from bad to worse so I have drawn the line now and rejoined to start afresh.
During my Facebook live session I answered a lot of questions about my weight loss journey and following some questions afterwards also I thought here would be a good place to put those answers down into words. For future live chats I will focus mostly on different areas asking you to put questions to me based on that subject for example comfort eating, Snacking, eating out etc.
I know many of my followers and readers found my blog due to my amazing weight loss of over 10 stone. I still cant believe I did that, I lost over 10 stone in 15 months with 8 stone of that in 37 weeks, and I kept it off for over a year. Of course in that year I had ups and downs but I was never more than around half a stone away from my target weight. This year though things have changed and I have struggled so I want to be honest and share this with you and hope you understand and continue to follow my journey that will never end.
My little attempt at a poem about secret eating and sabotaging yourself for the full week!
In recent weeks I have decided that a part of my life needs to change, I can no longer carry on with things as they are and I know that I need to be stronger and more confident in myself so that I can change. My friend is the reason I am not happy and the reason I need to get rid of this friend for good.
This morning when I checked my Facebook the first thing that came up was that it was apparently “Friends Day”. Facebook had a video/slideshow for everyone with pictures of them with friends. Lovely idea but it did get me thinking. There is a day for everything isn’t there nowadays. I had a bit of a search of the internet and found that tomorrow is national carrot cake day and the following day is homemade soup day, there is a day for everything, I even came across a “cook a sweet potato day”!
