It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I started the New Year so well, full of good intentions to ditch the junk food, eat sensibly and above all, shift the blubber that means if I lie on a beach I run the risk of being harpooned.
And yet here we are now in April. I lost a stone, and managed to keep it off. But that. Is. All.
Of course I have lots of excuses. There was a lot of stress at work. My cat was diagnosed with cancer. Etc, etc. While some of the other women who began the New Year New Body plan with me have managed to carry on losing weight I’ve simply resorted to my usual pattern of comfort eating when crisis hits.
The truth is staring me in the mirror, when I can bear to look. The only person who can shift this weight is me.
So that’s why I’m restarting my New Body plan today. I firmly believe that the best way to lose weight is to have support from others, so if you’re trying to lose weight, and you want to join me, let me know and we’ll do it together. And those of you who have managed to stick with New Year New Body, it would be fab if you could share your tips.
Together we can do this.
