As you may remember from a previoius posting, I decided to abort my C25K due to bulging disc lower back problems. Well, after resting for a few days, I continued with my walking...fast pace, just about able to hold a (short) conversation...for about 25-30 mins per day. I joined Slimming World three weeks ago and was GUTTED last week when I only lost ONE pound after losing 5 the first week. However, I've stayed on track with my food, continued my walking and this week I lost....drum roll please :-)...4lb!!!! This makes a total weight loss of 10lb over 3 weeks!!! The best part of all is that people are already starting to notice my weight loss!! I think the combination of healthy eating AND some exercise is def the way forward for me. I'm a typical 'pear' shape, so have always found it hard to shift the weight on my thighs & butt! Although I know I'll always be this shape, I now know that walking makes a huge different to shifting weight in this particular area of my body.
Good luck to you all on your own personal journeys and remember...keep positive and keep smiling! xxx
