    Post holiday weigh in…


    Well i’m back from Cyprus which was absolutely A M A Z I N G. The weather was fantastic, the hotel was brilliant and I had the best time. I’m going to write up another post about my holiday later in the week but need to write up this post to make a fresh start with WW. I gained whilst on holiday. I gained a massive amount. I gained 9.5lb! I gained more weight than the average size newborn baby! I am disgusted with myself to be quite honest as I didn’t stop myself shoveling in cake, ice cream, hot dogs, peanut m&m’s, sausage and bacon for breakfast, cocktail after cocktail after cocktail! I’m not proud of it and actually i’m quite ashamed of it. I’ve ruined the last couple of months good work and now i’m 10lb away from where I was 2 weeks ago. Gutted.

    My weigh in day has now changed to a Tuesday so I will be starting a fresh tomorrow. Back exercising on the wii, taking Mikey out for long brisk walks, Aquafit and Zumba. I’m secretly hoping I can shift quite a bit of the weight this week and get back nearer to where I was 2 weeks ago.  I’ve got 7 weeks (7 weigh in’s) to lose as much weight as possible before my hospital appointment so I’m going to have to step it up a gear and be as good as possible but I’m seriously worried now that i’m not going to get where the Dr wanted me to be by October. Mega disappointment looming!

    The damage is done! All I can do is accept it and move on and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Tomorrow sees the start of a fresh week, a new set of points and a new set of weeklies. I need to get this weight off and quick! Help? {sig}
