I Want To Be A Loser!

It has been a while since I have posted about my weight, Monday night I had my last weigh in before holiday. I put on, I knew I would but its OK, I lost – I didn’t see it coming. So I am pleased to say I am going to Vegas 10lb lighter than what I was when I started on this journey and that’s OK!

However, when I get back from holiday there are a few things that I would love to be thinner for, first thing is my Cocktails & Cupcakes Girls Night! Its late June and I cant wait, all my girls are coming over we are going to have the fire pits going, cocktails flowing and yummy cupcakes. I would LOVE to have got my club 10 award by then, its only 7lb less than what I am now, I can do that!

Not long after that is my cousins wedding in July. I don’t think its unrealistic to have hit my 1.5st award by then, I will have a new front number then and will be a lot closer to Target!

The next mission then is my Birthday, I would LOVE to be a Target by then, but I think that is unrealistic, so 2st is my aim! I would hope by Hayley’s Hen Night in November I would be a Target, I would have been on my Slimming World journey for 1 year  at that point and if I have hit my Target I would be a total of 2st 12lb lighter.

HOWEVER! With every goal there is the risk that you wont succeed, if I don’t I wont be letting anyone down but myself. So as a note to me – here is a reminder of why I re-started my weight loss journey!

– Level Out My Hormones To Aid With My PCOS

– Be In A Healthy Weight Range

– Be Happier In My Own Skin

I have even made the decision not to waste my money on FOOD! This means, not buying a cheeky subway after weigh in on a Monday or sweets or a quick lunch because I was too lazy to bring something from home! I am limiting my funds because I’m saving and I don’t want to waste my “fun” money on Food! I want to enjoy it, I want to buy clothes or go to the cinema or socialize with my friends. Food doesn’t give you any companionship or achievements, so why waste unnecessary money on it! I have even said that I am not bringing myself back any food from America, apart from for my Dad. I wont eat it and if I do eat it, then I am sabotaging my own weight loss!

Lets do this!

What If I Don’t Achieve All 30??

Yesterday, I decided I wanted to go to The Mall Of America next year just after my birthday…..I looked into it and realised that it would be approx £950 to get there & stay there (including a trip to my Godparents). Then I realised that I would have to add at least another £750 minimum for spending money, I then did what every good person does and made a Pro Vs Con list……more on that later!

It did make me realise that actually I might not be able to do everything on my list, I want to move out and save for my deposit more than anything & I am almost 30% there – but this does mean that other things might just have fall by the way side! Thing is, I am quite ambitious and I hate letting people down most of all I hate not achieving goals that I set myself! So for me to accept that I might not actually be able to cross all 30 things off my list has only just occured to me!

What does it mean if I dont do it all, what happens? do I still have to try to cross these off after I am 30? Or do I just quit and if I do quit, what happens to my blog? I figure they are all questions only I can answer and only I can work out myself. This is one the things I hate about being a grown up…..you have to make your own decisions, no one can do it for you AND it comes down to you if you muck up!

One thing I am positive I am going to do is at least ATTEMPT to cross all 30 things off my list and have a bloody good time doing it!

Here Is What I Have Achieved So Far!

Here Is What I Have Achieved So Far!

Motivation…….

Today I ran 1/2 mile in 7 minutes, yes I know that’s slow and not a great time but I ran the whole way and didn’t stop. For me that is a bit achievement .

I have started to get used to being at the gym for an hour and splitting that hour between cardio and weights. Some days are easier than others, but this journey is a LONG one and results won’t come over night, you have to WORK hard to see the results and it makes it even better when you get there!

Don’t give up!
