Hello everyone and welcome to class.
Well, it's happened. Already. Christmas has hit the shops. Mince pies with a use by date of 30th September, Christmas puddings and cakes, huge tubs of chocolate, chocolate reindeers, santas. polar bears........too much, too soon! Oh, I forgot the big tins of shortbread too!
Please don't stock up in advance. It may never see Christmas if you do. I do encourage you to plan ahead to Christmas, but that's only in relation to your weight, not your Christmas shopping list. Plan to be lighter. How much? Well, it's about 14 weeks away. A pound a week and a stone lighter......more....less......sts? It's all in your hands. I will help you all that I can, but it is you who makes the food and drinks choices. Choose to lose, When you stop and think about things, if you are tempted by unhealthy things, then maybe you are choosing between a weight loss and a weight gain. We all know what you want, so make the right choices.
Our class was a bit quieter last week with so many being off on holiday so we look forward to welcoming them back and wish those about to go away a fantastic break. We did have some nice losses, so big congratulations to Elspeth 2.5lbs, Hannah 2lbs, Valerie 1lb, Fergie 1lb, and Kath 1.5lbs. Everyone has a brand new start if they want it. Monday is always a good day to refocus and plan your next weight loss. Try and include some important exercise too. It doesn't need to be a big effort at the gym unless you really enjoy that. Going out for a lovely brisk walk will do you a power of good too. Whatever exercise you decide to do, it has to be something that you really enjoy doing. If you don't enjoy it, you will give up. Similarly you need to enjoy your weight loss journey for the same reason. If you don't, you won't keep it going. The great thing is though, to enjoy our weight loss journey, all we need to do is eat delicious healthy food. What's not to love about that? Do you need to change your meal routine around to make it more exciting? If you buy the same shopping every week,you will eat the same food. Change is very good!
So, our new week is in full swing, so enjoy it, choose healthy food, get a bit of activity in and enjoy it!
