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.




  1. It’s not easy to lose weight, is, especially when there are medical issues compounding ones efforts. Good luck with your goals though, you can do it!

  2. Lots of luck in your weight loss journey. You can do this. Lots of whole food, plant based foods are the key. Eat the rain bow…but in the fruit and veg way…not the Skittles way! :-p

  3. Happy birthday Sylvia! Also, I am sure you can do it just don’t let anything hold you back and take your time as slow and steady is always best x
