Slimming World Quick Update – The REALLY Long Haul

Subtitle – Michael, please give my consultant one of your calculators.

Last night I was thumbing proudly through my book and glowing over my progress over the last five weeks, when I realised that something didn’t quite add up about my weight loss. It wasn’t until this morning when I was crunching numbers over my weetabix that I realised that a few weeks ago, when I had apparently lost five pounds, I had only lost three. So, the one and a half stone certificate I received last night was a bit overdue. My total weight loss is one stone five pounds, not a stone and a half. Dammit. This is going to be a long enough journey without taking two steps back for every three steps forwards.

I’m extra determined to get a good loss this week now. This weight has got to go!

Slimming World Week 5 – The Long Haul

Back from another session at Slimming World armed with another bag of fruit after being Slimmer of the Week for a third time. With another 2lb gone, it takes my overall weight loss to 1 and a half stone (a.k.a. 21lb, a.k.a. 9kg). It looks like my weight loss has started to slow down from the big 6lb losses of my first few weeks to a still quite acceptable, steady, one or two pounds a week. Fair enough, I can live with that, as long as it’s a loss each week, I should still be on track for making a huge difference to my life within the year, and be heading towards my target within two.

As mentioned previously the director, Dean Karr, was planning something special for our top-hatted friend…
