Well, I did it - I got through all eight weeks of the 5% Challenge and tracked my nutrition and exercise, amassed Live the Goodlife points for the team and tried to keep in touch with other team-mates and encourage them.
Did I lose 5% of my body weight? No.
Am I disappointed? Yes, of course.
And yet, I know I've made progress and I've had some health issues to deal with too. I've found that I spend too long Sparking, still don't get through all the Spark Stuff that I'd like to, and all with the result of not getting enough sleep.
I'm going to get there, though. I'm going to lose my excess weight - very, very slowly, it would seem, but I WILL do it.
For now, though, my immediate goal is to fit into the very special dress and jacket that I've got for my sister's wedding on 10th August. She's getting married in Coventry Cathedral(!) and I'm reading the lesson, so will have to go up to the front and everyone will be looking at me - help! So, I'm GOING to fit into that dress!!
