I did it, I took the plunge and went back to the slimming club I had found success with a few years ago.
I was a little embarrassed to start with, walking into a huge room on my own having to admit to myself that I had been defeated by life, by chocolate and cake. But there were familiar faces, I realised its a way of life for some people, they come back week after week after week.
I listened to the introduction talk, all about how I needed to eat this, and count that and exercise, and drink water. And fill in a food diary.
And I will, because today I had a scare! My glucose blood test results came back higher than I had ever seen them before. Possibly even too high to pull myself back from a re test and drop below the threshold. I’m reeling from the shock.
And once I have got over the shock, I’ll keep telling you about my journey. perhaps I don’t need the fat/thin pictures as motivation – I just needed this slap in the face from a test result.
