After I finally joined a slimming club… a week or so ago I had my first weigh in on Friday and I am pleased to say that I lost 5.5lbs – yes 5.5lbs! This is the most weight I’ve lost in just one week in many a year and I am naturally very chuffed.
So what did I do differently to achieve this great result? Well I upped my exercise for one, I swam three times, went to an aqua aerobics class (which was highly amusing!) and I ran. However, I’ve been exercising regularly for a while now and so I think the biggest factor was that the thought of the weigh-in has helped me to stick to the rules of the plan. When I am just ‘going it alone’ I can always ‘start again tomorrow’ but when you have a firm deadline this isn’t possible.
I must admit that I am living in fear that this week was a fluke and that I can’t possibly lose again on Friday, but I’ll stick to the rules and pray that this wasn’t a one off.
Wish me luck!
