I knew it'd be bad as on New Year's Day I really stuffed myself! I was exhausted as I'd only gone to bed at 3am on NYE and needed sweet stuff! I am ashamed and a bit cross now at what I ate.
I have been such a fool and the scales are being scarily honest! Not going to admit what they say to anyone! I know my boobs are bigger than normal and my back very uncomfortable, my thighs and tummy are showing the difference.
Oh my god!
Things need to change and quickly. Not healthy to go down as quick as up but sure I can do it if I get straight back to the Slimming World plan.
1. Write it all down.
2. Re-read the SW information and do exactly what is recommended
3. Maybe limit the number of daily syns for a few days!
4.Completely ignore the junk – syn food.
5. Increase the exercise as much as I can.
6. Write down my goals clearly and consider why I have overindulged so madly in
so little time.
I was so proud not to put weight on after my operation and during my October holiday but there has been so much temptation over Christmas and I have overindulged big style.
A group of students disagreed about which were the 7 wonders of the world but the following received the most votes.

The teacher asked one girl if she had finished and she can she couldn't make up her mind as there are so many. The girl hesitated and then read 'I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
1. To see
2. To Hear
3. To Touch
4. To Taste
5. To Feel
6. To Laugh
7. To Love
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for granted are truly wondrous. The most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man.
Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.
My consultant supplied these ideas last night to my group and I want to share them.
Think GREY not black and white (or good and bad), don't worry about it being a bad meal, which can turn into a bad day and maybe even a bad week!
Try not to set unreasonable standards for yourself.
Remember no syns are bad! Try to plan your food intake and fit them in.
If you have a TO DO LIST, a list of things you should do, then bin it! Throw it away! (Not sure I agree to this as I wrote a big list today and enjoyed ticking each item off yesterday).
But I do understand PROCRASTINATION too, putting things off if I have too much to do. Nic suggested a 'I'd Like to ' would be a better list to have.
Set yourself realistic goals, remember every week can be different!
Do celebrate your success. At the end of each day write down 3 things you've done well that day, could be weight related or not.
Try to stay positive.
Stop comparing yourself to others! We are all individuals. (I know I still look big compared with some people but for me I'm looking the most shapely I have ever looked!)
Remember you are not on your own (we have a whole Spark team)!
I was talking to a friend who is coming to the same Slimming World class as me and she said she couldn't do it properly yet as she wasn't in the 'zone' yet!
On reflection I realised that I stepped out of that ZONE last week when I was much heavier than I expected when I was weighed on Tuesday night. So Wednesday and Thursday I was miserable and ate and ate! Lots of bad food choices!
On Friday I realised I will have put on again when I get weighed the following week but will now be into 13 stone something rather than 12 stone something and really would like to get to 12 stone ( I don't ever remember being that light!O)
I am not good at asking for help! I think that going to class is my way of asking for that help! and being on this site too.
