So we are well through the 6 month mark of my weight loss journey this year and my word, it has been a roller coaster.
I started off strong and then relapsed and so has continued the pattern. In amongst being ill for weeks at a time and holidaying in California (and Disneyland, eek!) I am at a total loss of 8.5lbs this year. Not a huge or momentous grand total at all, however I am determined not to give up.
Recently a woman on the train tried to offer me her seat because she thought I was pregnant! How mortifying. I was wearing a flowy dress so I guess she can be forgiven a little but it did knock me.
One of my long time friend recently took up jogging for the first time in her life and I think watching her grow in it has inspired me to get back out there. A few years ago I started jogging for the first time in my life and I was so proud of myself when I completed a 5K, the following year I went on to complete (albeit, I found it really hard) a 10k. Finishing that race put me off jogging and I took a long break … and 3 years later I am still on that break. Perhaps time to revisit it. The feeling of having to start all over again is a little overwhelming as any fitness I had built up has surely disappeared, but I suppose needs must.
