I put my trainers on, picked up my jacket, and made my over to the semi circle of chairs; my shoulders felt like the entire world was on them, pushing me down, desperately trying to make me quit, and go back to me my old. I remember sitting there with my book open in the palms of my hands, staring down at the last 10 weigh-ins, listen to my brain scream things like, “what the point? The second I realised this, that weight that had taken up residency on shoulders and getting heavier with every passing week suddenly vanished! This has given me a real positive boost for when I hit my target weight and being able to maintain it over the long term. You’ve already lost weight which is great, sure losing more would (will) be fantastic, but maintaining is a million times better than regaining and returning to your old fat self, isn’t it?
We as a community need to come together and be positive because we are doing the right thing, we are changing our lives for the better, sure it may be slow, but you know what, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and nor were you! I then asked him, “Hand on your heart, in the last 15 weeks have you been flowing slimming world 110% ?” his answer was exactly like mine, “No, I’ve had the odd bits and bobs here and there, nothing too bad just normal living”.
Telling him that this was a good thing and that he should look at this plateau as a dry run for when he reaches his target.


I’m not saying this concept will work for everyone because it won’t, but if you only take one thing away from this article let it be this, don’t be so hard on yourself because the minute you do, that’s when things get 10x harder. So….I fell off the weight loss wagon and made a crater the size of London underneath me!
I got on the scales, looked down and that when I felt the willpower and determination racing to leave my body like a greyhound out of the traps.
That wasn’t all, the willpower and determination that was itching to leave my body was now surging through my veins at 1000 mph. Anyway, we were talking about how we were both getting on and despite his fantastic weight loss he’s been stuck on a plateau for about 15 weeks!
He looked so down and dishearten telling me, and that when I turned round and said “15 weeks!
I love to help anyone I can with anything, and this was the perfect example, most people (the whole weight loss industry in fact) take not losing weight when trying to as a bad thing, but it doesn’t have to be.
It’s a vicious circle that we need to stop, not just in weight loss but in every aspect of our lives.


Stepping off the scales I felt as though I was running my heart out but not getting anywhere. Find the small wins in everything you do and slowly you’ll get to where you want to be without all the un-necessary stress and pressure. I'm looking for a healthy, sustainable lifestyle that's enjoyable yet maintainable in today's modern life. If that's what you want, you should stick around, I'm sure you'll find something helpful and don't forget to say hi to me on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Instagram.
