Keeping Motivated Part 2

In my last post about keeping motivated I made up a list of what I needed to do to to keep me on my diet, here’s my personal keeping motivated list:

Set a realistic goal

My goal is to get to 10 stone by Christmas, that gives me a total of 24 weeks to lose 27 pound, just over 1 pound a week seems realistic to me. (I’ve already lost 3 pound so that’s now only 24 pound in 23 weeks!)

Keeping Motivated Part 1

It’s the start of day 6 of the diet and so far so good.  I’ve been on plan, i’m still motivated and i’m hoping for a decent loss when I weigh in on Monday morning.  As you may or may not know, I lost nearly 2 stone on Slimming World a couple of years ago.  Since then, i’ve managed to put pretty much all of it back on but i’ve decided it’s now time for me to finally lose this weight (and keep it off) once and for all.

Right now i’m feeling motivated to shift this weight, but the negative part of me in the back of my mind is worried that this determination just won’t last.  It’s happened before, i’ve started a diet with the best intentions and 2 weeks in have just given up and gone back to being a pig and so this time i’m preempting this happening.  I’ve done some research on keeping motivated and while a lot of it either didn’t apply to me personally or just didn’t seem realistic there was a few things that made sense, here’s what i’ve taken from my research and what I think will work for me.

New Beginnings…

So here we go again, after having lost nearly 2 stone a couple of years ago I have managed to put nearly all of it back on again (oops).  So here I am at 11 st 13 pound (I was 10 st 7 pound at my lowest) and on Day 1 of my new journey. Ideally I would like to get to 10 st 7 pound so i’ve 20 pound to lose, which is not unrealistic as long as I can actually stick to my diet for more than a couple of weeks.

If you follow me on instagram you will have seen me start again about 20 different times with different diets and fail every single time.  I haven’t been in the right frame of mind for dieting. I moved in with my boyfriend about 12 months ago and we have been enjoying life and eating everything in sight since then.

I finally feel like I am in the right frame of mind to start again for good, I turned 30 a couple of days ago and I had wanted to be at target for my 30th but it just never happened, so I am determined that I will be at target for Christmas this year .  Christmas is 24 weeks away so that evens out to about a 1 pound per week loss, which is absolutely possible.

Slimming World or More?

Hi Guys,

I’m back on my Slimming World journey after putting all my weight back on (I know, naughty me) and was just curious what people want from my blog.  Before, I only posted about my diet but I feel like that is only one small facet of my life and I want to post about more.  Would me posting about my life, cats, opinions etc as well as posting about Slimming World stop you from coming to the blog or would it not matter?  Hopefully this poll will help!

Thank you for taking the time to vote!!



I’m back, again…

What a mad couple of months I’ve had, I moved in with my boyfriend, started a new job and joined a slimming world group.  I’m happy to say 2 out of three of those things are going well. The one thing that’s not going to well?  My diet!!!

I’m lucky that I’ve not put too much weight on, and I’m hoping I’m still in the same stone bracket (probably only just though)  and so I’m trying not to get myself down about it too much.  The good news is that my boyfriend has agreed to do slimming world with me and so I’m hoping that he will help me with my motivation to get this last stone gone.  Continue reading

Joining a Slimming World Group

This morning I went to join a group, up until now I’ve been doing Slimming World online and as you can probably tell from my lack of posts recently I seem to have lost my motivation completely! In fact I have lost my motivation so much that I’ve managed to put back on 10 pounds!!! That is an absolutely massive gain and i’m so disappointed in myself for letting it this far and not putting a stop to this sooner.  There’s no point in beating myself up over it though and so i’m back on track from tomorrow with no excuses!!
