In Which I Drag Mum Back To Weight Watchers

I’ve been back at Weight Watchers since September now, and I’ve been up and down so much you’d think I was on a rollercoaster, or someone was playing me like a yo-yo.

Nope. I joined with best intentions, but between having to have my cat put to sleep last year, and my Aunt dying at the start of this year, plus stress from so much work for college, my brain hasn’t exactly been in the best place to deal with weight loss. I understand that it can’t really be simpler than “track everything, don’t go over your points, and do your exercise as much possible,” but all I’ve really wanted to do for the past 6 months has been to eat crap. As much crap as possible. The more the merrier, in fact. My head has not been in the game.

I signed up to Sugar-Free February in aid of Cancer Research UK a few weeks ago, and I’ve just finished week 1. I feel a little irritable, a lot headachey, but I lost 2.5lbs this week, which is excellent.

Bringing Mum Back To Weight Watchers

Mum was talking about how she had to get her eating and her weight in check, so I asked her if she wanted to come to Weight Watchers with me. She rejoined on Tuesday, so hopefully with Mum also following the plan, it’ll be easier for me to stick to it.

Of course, I still have breakfast and lunch to deal with when I’m at college, but I’ll see how that goes. I still have plans to pack my lunch every day to A) eat healthier and B) save money, but so far I’ve managed a whole one day, oops.

I think my head’s back in the right place for everything else, though. I’ve not had the urge to binge at all this week, which is probably because I ordered Domino’s the night before I started this challenge month, so my cravings were sated a little.

I’ve still got three weeks to go, though, so I don’t wanna brag like, “Oh this is so easy, why didn’t I do this earlier?!” It’s definitely not easy. It’s really effing hard, in fact, and I bow down to people who have fully gotten on board with the whole sugar-free thing. If any of them are reading this: please send prayers. I may need them.

Donate To FATGIRLslim’s Sugar-Free February Challenge

I’d be really grateful if you could donate to my fundraising page, in aid of Cancer Research UK. This month, I’m challenging myself to remove added sugar – sweets, chocolates, ice cream etc – from my diet, and I’m also attempting to give up soda for the month (although I had some in the first three or four days because Mum bought a few bottles by accident). Others are also taking the challenge to raise money for cancer research by doing exactly the same.

If you’d like to donate, please follow the link below. If you cannot afford to donate but would still like to help spread the word, please feel free to share my giving page!
