For the non Slimming Worlder that may be reading this, various achievements are celebrated on your weight loss journey and although my 1 stone award is really close I’m desperate to achieve my Club 10 by Christmas.
What is Club 10?
Losing just 10% of your body weight when you are overweight can bring huge health benefits and so you receive an award when you lose 10% of your starting weight.
You can read more about it here.
So I’m going to put my weight out there and be brave – after all it’s just a number right?
My start weight was 17st 4½lbs. Ouch.
My current weight is 16st 7lbs. I’m 11½ pounds lighter after 7 weeks and I feel great for it.
My Club 10 weight, is 15st 8lbs. And I really want to get there by Christmas, which is 10 weeks away.
Can I lose 13lbs, basically a stone in ten weeks?
To get there would also mean I would be my lowest weight in five years – and psychologically it’s a big deal.
I’m feeling really low about the fact I’m the same I was a year ago, and I’m now the start weight I was when I joined this time last year. I’m really trying to live in the ‘now’ and not dwell on the past.
If I can do this, I can do anything.
Have you got any mini goals in place? What keeps you motivated?
