First day back to slimming world

Well, tomorrow marks my first day back on the diet train!
I am going back to slimming world. I had been trying to lose weight on my own, and I was having sorta success with it, but more times than not I was ordering food, or eating junk food.
I had left slimming world when the first lockdown hit. The meetins were taking place on zoom and I wasnt benefiting from them. They are still on zoom, for now at least, but we go to weigh in each week, so I will try to make it work for me for the rest of the time that they’ll be on zoom.
The country is reopening fully in a couple of weeks, so I am sure once that happens, we’ll be back to doing face to face groups again.
I am exciting to go back tomorrow, when I was in slimming world in the past, it became like a second family to me. Everyone is so supportive and I enjoy getting the group support, you can chat about recipes, about ups and downs, etc.
Its really great. I am going to weigh in in the morning, and the weight that I am when I step on the scales, is the weight I will start at. I hope the scales is kind to me and I hope I don’t get a shock when I step on it.
It’ll be good to get back to planning my meals again and I will have a structure and that always helps me. I love 30 pounds in six months the last time I was in slimming world and following the diet religiously, so I know I can do it again.
I’m already planning meals for the weekend. I’ll be going to my parents this weekend, and I’ve already asked my mom to get me the ingredients to make the slimming world version of a macdonalds burger, its called a burger in a bowl, because you don’t have it on a bun. I’ve also asked mom to make me stir fry on Friday, vegetable stir fry.
Mom is also cooking me steak on Wednesday, I’ll have it with fried onions, and a baked potato. She is also bringing me leftover curry that she froze for me last week, which I will have on Thursday, so my meals are pretty much sorted for this week.
I just need to make myself out an exercise plan now. I think I’ll stick with doing 10 minutes once or twice a day on the treadmill for the next week, there is a treadmill at moms house also so I can continue to do my exercise while I am there.
I’m happy I’ve decided to do this, I really needed a good kick in the butt, to get me motivated again, so now that I am, I’m really pleased.
