It’s been a messy few weeks! Getting back to work after our holiday, putting more and more weight on, being incredibly busy and unbelievably tired.
But I’ve decided I’m not going to let it get the better of me!
Time to get back to being as healthy as I can.
I’m always happier when I eat well, and I’m hoping as I lose weight I will be able to exercise more, and I’m definitely happier then.
I’ve done a bit of research into eating for Lupus, and your bog standard diets out there. I know I’m not strong enough emotionally to do this on my own, so had to find a group that was as close to what I needed as possible and Slimming World seems to tick most of the boxes.
I’m “lucky” as I’m over weight, my Doctor referred me, which means I get 12 weeks free membership, and I’m hoping in that time, I get my head round it properly and get into a routine, and most importantly fall in love with it, and the benefits it offers me.
Thats the plan anyway.
I went to my first class yesterday, had my new members meeting, got all my information, and got weighed. Set my ultimate target, and my 10% target, and went on my way. Nice group, everyone seems friendly, and of course, all there for the same reason.
This week is a bit of a convenience week – lots of SW ready meals, just to give me the time to prepare, and read up about it, and prepare my menu for the week.
I’ve done that this morning, spent about an hour going through my books, and looking online and I now have a full week menu, ready for my online shop on Wednesday.
First impression – I can eat an awful lot!
Been out out for a walk too, for about an hour, I need to be more active! But small steps!
