Yay! Go Me!

This is a quick, more than a little smug, post. Last night was my Slimming World meeting.

I had hoped for a half lb loss and I got two and a half!
More importantly I have now lost 1 stone 9 and a half lb.

By losing this weight I have reduced my BMI from the original number of 31.3 to 27.4

With this change I am continually increasing my general well-being and health. I know I can get up the kitchen stairs almost at a run now, I don't have so much trouble getting out of bed, people have noticed I've lost weight without knowing I am on the plan, I need new clothes for the holiday and I am chuffed.

This week I was awarded joint slimmer of the week and joint slimmer of the month. Eeeek!

I have about nine more lbs to lose and then see how I feel.

Thank you for listening to my personal boast of smugness!

Bye for now.

    1. Thanks Marlene. I have to be honest, though, I haven't found it difficult and would recommend the plan to anybody.x

  2. WELL DONE. I on the other hand, have gone the other way so it's time to resist temptation. I just need to fit some decent walks in but have been working 4 day weeks with my wee business and haven't been able to get out to burn up the calories.

    1. Thanks BB. I don't do as much walking as I used to do but consider working outside in the garden as good exercise. I would like to make the effort to go running, though. I just like the idea of it and am always inspired around the time of the London marathon. Balancing life can be tricky.
