You know I don't think I've ever mentioned my 'real job'. I say it like that because its what I say if people ask 'what do you do?' Apart from replying 'as little as possible', LOL I work for a slimming club. Can you imagine explaining to the general population 'I make and design teddy bears'. Been there before and its just not worth trying to explain. It was even worse when I just made miniatures, the look on their faces, not one of admiration of the size, more 'how much!!!!!' Anyways, this year is a special one for me with slimming club, as its ten years since I lost my weight. I've lost 5 stone (70lbs) altogether and its the year I started the club too. I have so many wonderful members, but losing weight is such an issue year, after year, seeming to get worse, not better.
I hate to say it, healthy filling food, lots of..... a few treats and a pinch of willpower and a real wanting to do it attitude, thats how to do it. Also sharing and understanding from those around you, its too hard on your own. I've put a few pounds on over Christmas and they show no signs of going, even though I'm back to healthy eating and walking. Sigh...things never change, at least I know what has got to be done. More healthy eating, more walking and less treats, for a few weeks at least. To any of you out there, from someone whos been there, good luck if you need to lose weight!
