Every so often when I’m feeling fed up and trying hard not to reach for the ‘bad stuff’ in the kitchen, I re-read some of my earlier posts on my weight loss journey and find it really encouraging!
This is from June 2016 when I had just started my free course at Slimming World, and before Humphrey’s presence was detected.
I hit my target in August 2019 and apart from a blip last week which has now been rectified, have stayed in it. I am allowed a week’s grace anyway, so haven’t broken any rules.
I sometimes wonder if I would have had my paranoia about food had the teachers at grammar school not hit on me because I didn’t fit the mould, and subsequently made me feel guilty about anything I ate.
Had lessons been more about nutrition, food groups and understanding the foods we ate to satisfy our body’s needs, maybe obesity would not be as big an issue as it is.
