The Weight Loss Battle Continues

Today I am writing an update on my efforts to lose weight. I’ve spent a lot of time unwell over the past 8 weeks and have been taking extra steroids. I took a week off from my weight loss efforts due to illness and it turned into two weeks and that turned into a month. I need to get back on track. I need to get back onto the Weight Watchers plan because that’s the only plan I have ever done that works for me.


I don’t lose weight as fast as some but it is possible to lose weight even when the odds are against you and I need to do it for me, to feel happy, to feel healthy and to be the best I can be.

Summer is approaching and it would be lovely to lose enough weight to get back into my Summer Dresses. I’m a size 24 and would like to be back to a 20. I’m not sure if it will happen but I have to give it a shot right. Since I was on extra medication and kind of fell off track, I regained the weight I had lost and so I need to start over.

I am a lot less than I was in 2014 and 2015 so that is good news but I still have a long way to go.


In fact today I was contacted by a Weight Loss company who asked me to work with them on my blog. I turned the offer down. It’s not a brand or weight loss program that I love or feel I could genuinely support or represent.

It would have been good to try but I need a slow and steady and healthy weight loss and I do think that can be best achieved by following a healthy plan and not desperately trying anything. I’m best sticking to Weight Watchers.

If your anything like me you will know how hard it can be to lose weight and I do think the key to success is having a good support network which is why I love Weight Loss meetings.

I just got a letter to go see the Weight loss team at hospital and I’m not looking forward to having them tell me what I know, that I regained one stone.

Yep, I did and it’s no fun to admit but it’s the truth. I need to start counting my points again and get cooking healthier meals once more. I also need to rebuild my energy levels and try and walk again. I have a fit bit and that is really useful for helping me know how many steps I do. I’m going to try and walk the dogs with my daughter when I am well enough.

I hope to get back on track soon and have a positive update! I can do this. I can! In fact I’ve been a Mother for 10 years today. Sylvia is 10, it’s her birthday and I want to the next ten years to be healthier for me and for her.
