Sunday 17th February 2008

Welcome, dear reader! You join me as I am about to enter week 7 of my "Lose a huuuge amount of weight and get fit" campaign.

I joined Slimming World (not for the 1st time!) on 7th January, and stood on the scales with trepidation. It's like this you see. Ever since I was about 15 I have been a yo yo dieter, and I have had some damn fine losses let me tell you! The problem I have is that I never learn from my past mistakes, so sooner or later I fall off the wagon and go back to my bad ways, regain all the weight I've just lost, plus a stone or so extra. That's how I made it up to 22st 11 1/2lbs by the age of 40. Did I say that outloud?? Oh well, if you are going to cheerlead me on my journey, you'd better know it's going to be a long one ;-)

At my last weigh in I had managed to shed a total of 20lbs in 5 weeks, so yay me! I get weighed on Monday evenings so I will have a progress report for you tomorrow night (or when I next blog....)

Hi, followed you over from the comments on Shauna's fab blog.
Just wanted to say hurrah for doing so well so far, and to keep it up!! I would say something far more inspiring, but that's what Shauna's for ;0)

What an inspiration!.
Gonna get me a lot of that and attempt a run tonight (probably a fast walk, but every little helps).
Keep it up Wendy
