Winners lose

Challenge #14 – lose 2 stone in a year

Losing two stone in a year can’t be that hard.  Can it?  It can when you spent the first 24 weeks not even trying.  So what was supposed to be losing 2 stone in a year is now losing 2 stone in 28 weeks.  Still, it’s only a pound a week so surely I’ve got to be able to do it.

First Step

Every challenge starts with a single step.  But for this challenge that first step was truly scary.  Because that first step is getting on the scales and finding out just how much I weigh.  This morning it was time to take that first step – and it was so much worse than I thought.

There I was stood in the bathroom, looking at the scales and thinking it can’t be that bad can it.  I know I’ve put on a bit of weight over the years but I lost nearly two stone a couple of years back.  Surely I can’t have put it all back on?  But at the back of my head I know I probably have.  So after a few minutes of silently praying I took that step and got on the scales.  And all I can say is ……………………

It’s even worse than I thought – and here’s the picture to prove it

This is my starting point 13 stone 12 pounds.  It doesn’t sound so bad if you say it quickly.  Actually who am I trying to kid.  Yes it does.  Of course it’s bad! Really bad!!  Embarrassingly bad!!! So now’s the time to start to put things right.

No matter how hard it is I am going to do this because………………

Dieting is the only game where you win when you lose
