So, any of you guys who have been following my for a while, will know that I have been following the Slimming World plan since March last year, and probably since about last November, I have really been struggling with my motivation to keep going.
So, I have decided that I am going to take a break from Slimming World for a little while.
I need to take some time out to refocus my mind and find my motivation again. I was doing so well – I was so focused on what I wanted to achieve. I had set myself a target of getting my 5 stone award before I went on holiday to Lanzarote last September, which I achieved and I was so proud of myself.
However, since coming back from holiday, I have found it really hard to get myself motivated again, and I seem to have fallen into a pattern of gaining and losing again, but not making any real progress from where I was.
A lot of things happened in my personal life towards the end of last year, which really hit me hard, and I did what I always do, I turned to emotional eating to make myself feel better and to cope with some really hard situations. My personal circumstances have also changed, which means my 7.30am group is now not feasible for me to go to, so on top of losing my motivation, I am also going to have to find a new group to attend, which makes me really sad as I had made some amazing friends at my group, and their support is incredible.
I really need to give myself a good talking too, and get back on track again, but I think to take the pressure of myself, I am going to take this time out and get myself refocused again and hopefully nail this weight loss and getting healthy thing for 2018.
Thank you all for sticking with me, your support and love is very much appreciated x x
