I have been a member of Slimming World for 3 (nearly 4) weeks and I’m already frustrated. I eat everything following the rules (most of the time), I’ve upped my gym sessions to 5 times a week (Wednesday – Wednesday), including one PT session.
Before I joined, I was already eating mainly along the lines of slimming world and I was going to the gym 3 times a week, sometimes four. However, to gather new ideas and recipes I follow the Facebook groups, these group don’t only give you ideas though, people can post about their weight loss. For me, although they are supposed to be motivational it makes me feel rubbish because I see that people have been there as long as I have and have lost a lot more. I mean some people have lost a stone in the time I’ve been there, congratulations to them of course, it’s fantastic, but it doesn’t half make me feel rubbish.
I am trying my best to stay positive and keep going but I feel like I’m getting nowhere. I put nearly a stone on in a month and a half because of the contraceptive pill. The only reason I had to change pill was because I was ‘obese’, that didn’t make me feel great because I’ve ended up going round in circles except I’m even heavier now! I have come off the pill for now to see if can boost the weight loss process but we’ll have to see.
I have been invited to a wedding in 7 weeks time so losing a little bit of weight is great but I really need to lose at least a stone so I can start toning up properly. My main aim now is to get fit for RTX in London this October. I want to be able to wear some of their t-shirts and shorts but not feel self conscious and fat. For that I have 15 weeks, that’s still not a lot.
I’m at a loss of what else I can do to help motivate my weight loss. I’m trying my best and I understand I’m fitter and stronger in myself but I’ve got nothing to show for it.
