It's both a physical and a mental challenge...

I've had a week of Slimming World and I have to say it certainly seems to be effective. I’ll wait to tomorrow to release the figure of weight actually lost but let’s just say it looks very promising.  It’s been a very challenging stressful week so to be able to say that I have not only stuck with my diet but have also lost weight is two major achievements for someone like me who is a chronic comfort eater.

I need to work harder on my positive self talk.  The pattern is that if I went out right now and ate my fill in a fast food joint I would enjoy it till I was finished and right in that second I would then turn on myself and beat myself up for days.  Mentally it would get quite nasty with the internal conflict being extremely brutal.  However when I achieve anything positive like what I've just shared with this week there is barely a positive word of affirmation said.  I need to work harder at believing in myself and treating myself with respect.


The Jillian Michaels book I'm reading at the moment looks at this.  I have to say that whilst I haven’t had a lot of time to read it what I have has impressed me.  I must review more of what I'm reading in her book.  That’s me for now, till the next post look after yourselves…
