For some weeks now, six to be exact, I have been trying to lose some weight. Until I was 30 I was fairly average, not skinny, but just a bit curvy. Then, after having two very large babies, my weight shot up. I lost a bit but not much, and once my boys stopped being toddlers and I was sitting at a desk or sewing machine all day I found it just starting to creep up on me even more. It doesn't help that we are all foodies in our family, we love to cook and eat, and my husband is one of those people who can eat as much as they want and never gain weight.
So I joined WeightWatchers. I was a bit sceptical of something so 'branded', but actually it has been brilliant. I've still been eating all of my favourite foods, just a bit more sensibly. The support of the lovely women in my weekly group has been a real help and has kept me motivated. Today everyone cheered for me because I've lost SIX KILOS. In six weeks. I still have a long way to go but I am really proud of myself and I already feel much more energetic. And it's the first sunny day in ages today. Yay!
