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!)
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.

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!
I apologise for being quiet the past few weeks, I’ve been having a terrible time in work and the stress has lead to me eating everything in sight. I’ve been so off track i’m dreading weighing myself!! Because of that, i’m trying success express for a week or so in an attempt to boost my weight loss so when I do weigh myself it hopefully won’t be as bad as I think it will.
I decided to do SE yesterday so I’m still trying to figure it out but hopefully I’ve got it right. Here’s yesterday’s and todays food… Continue reading →
