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.
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………………
