New slimming group

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

We have started a new slimming group in our village, it is just a group that we run ourselves and as it is held in a local Christian centre where our craft group is held it is free. We will have a weekly weigh in, a food diary to record our eating habits and we can swap recipes and advice.
I am all for any support I can get, my starting weigh is 11st 12 lbs which means that I put on a couple pounds over Christmas which is not too bad seeing as I was not as active as usual. Today I was going to go swimming but when I got there found I had forgot my swim suit so I went in the gym instead.
One other thing is that if we want we can raise money for charity by doing a sponsored slim and I may do this in aid of a clinic in Africa.

    ..and doing something for Africa, too! Way to go, Girl!

My Mom and I went to the original WW meetings a very long time ago. The meeting were pretty successful because we got support. Once a week support is not enough for me. Here at SP I can chat with people 24/7. This is way better!

    Our towns used to have something like that sponsored by the hospital but sadly it became a victim of budget cuts. It was incredible to see how many people turned out for it. was very popular

I'm so happy to see you continuing your efforts and finding further support when necessary. I had a rough day today. I did track, but not much else. emoticon The kids are finally back to school and Chris is working, so getting back to my own routine should be a bit easier. Stay well.

Hugs and love,

    The food diary that you keep for Spark can be copied and use for this local group, too. Keep Sparking!

    Good for you to find a local group! Spark is great by having local that you can grab for a walk instead of a muffin is the best.
