Days 5,6 and 7 of 100 days of Weightloss Challenge

Update on my weightloss....Monday's are my weigh-in at Slimming World I lost 2.5lbs/1.1kg.

Some interesting concepts shared in the book that I definitely will be using. I think with Slimming world I have already being exploring the idea of following a Narrower or Wider road. I am still on the road to weightloss even though I have intially chose the wider road and now I ready to make my boundaries narrower by switching from the Easy Plan to Green Plan. ALong the way I amanged to get my family motivated to join me and they becoming great encouragers.

Keen to see if the magic note idea will help me with my food temptations/cravings:
When a food thought crosses your mind, remind yourself that you don’t have to act on it. Instead,
write down the name or even a description of the food, and then anticipate the pleasure
of eating it sometime in the future.

Anytime you feel pressured to eat something, sidestep the food pusher by saying, “Not just yet; I’m going to wait a little while.”

I think the most important lesson I have learned over the last few days is not just to be interested in my weightloss but to be committed as Lisa Nichols says NO MATTER WHAT .......

Day 3 of 100 days of weightloss

Identify the task you don't feel like doing and do it anyway.....

Today that was eating a healthy home cooked meal instead of eating out......I looked at what vouchers that could make eating out cheap, considered the bad decision s I already made in the past week with eating on the road .......
I don't know what the scale is going to tell me tomorrow but today I ate healthy and I decided not to just be interested in health but to be committed :)

Day 1 of 100 Weightloss Challenge

I started my weightloss journey in February this year with Slimming World and I have lost 2stones/28lb/12.7kg so far.

This is hugh because I have not let the usual things that throw me off keep of this path. For the last 15 years I have started the journey weighloss and by Christimas I find myself a slight bit heavier but this year is going to be different.

Its the start of the school school and the countdown to Christmas. It is  also almost a year beafore I visit home-South Africa and turn 40! For all these reasons and more I have decided to add another tool my arsenal for change. A book fromt the Overdrive NI Libraries: 100 Days of Weighloss

Actions I will complete:

10 Reasons why I want to reach and Maintain my goal weight

Day 1: I used to be that way ..............
"I used to be that way, but now i'm different"

Slimming World......Sedway Reward

I started Slimming world in February this year. It has been slow and steady progress. I have been adapting my diet. Starting weight 125.6 kg / 19.12 stone...........followng the Extra Easy plan I have finally met my mini-goal goal of being under 18stone so that I can ride on a Sedway and I am only about 2 pounds away from my 2stone sticker :)
Thinking of switching over to the Green plan........

The amazing thing for me is that I have through illness and an ankle injury and managed to stay on track........three weeks i gained weight and 2 weeks I maintained as a result a steady loss......that is WIN for me on a mental level.........

The joke is that I have had to admit to myself that my trousers were larger than size 24 and the oes that were 24 and fit were stretchy and made differently so the next goal is to get to Size 22 and then buy a new outfit but in the mean time I am planning my Sedgeway reward and celebrating the loss I have achieved.

Photos to follow soon.......
