So I said a while back in my ENOUGH IS ENOUGH post that I would give up smoking, start exercising again and join weight watchers; I set myself the task of starting all these on one particular day! Well I can tell you now that didn’t happen but I have made progress…
I am now on my 37th day of not smoking; that part of the bargain I did keep too! It’s been OK – I’ve had good days and bad, on the bad days I stuffed my face so I’m pleased I didn’t sign up to Weight Watchers as I think it would have been too much pressure on myself to begin with!
Whenever I am feeling low I open up this app and see how much money I have saved and plan what to spend it on… I’ve spent it a thousand times already (in my head) and have probably already blown it x5 😉
So last Tuesday (11th June) I signed up to Weight Watchers online, my first week has been really hard as I was replacing my nicotine cravings with food, now I have nicotine and food cravings and nothing to satisfy them but it is gradually getting easier… especially when I weighed in this morning and found out I’d lost an amazing 4lbs. I am so pleased with myself and it has just given me a huge boost to continue!
The only thing I haven’t started again yet is working out, I’m just coming up with a regime at the moment but I aim to get back on it on Monday next week!
I want to concentrate on feeling great about myself rather than getting to a ‘target’ as such! I don’t want to miss out on life because I’m a few stone overweight!
The future is bright and definitely healthier…
