Fat Mama Slim – Starting Over

Ok, so I feel like a bit of a failure with my Fat Mama Slim Challenge!

As always I start with really good intentions and then they quick wither away. I become apathetic and bored. I then feel guilty, but feel so ashamed of my failings that it’s often just easier to let it all slide and forget about it. But I can’t forget about it because that weight is still there, reminding me every day that it needs to come off!

I’ve not had a great few months with regards to my mental health and unfortunately, when I have bad episodes I lack motivation and just want to eat bad stuff all the time.

However, things are on the up! I have got myself sorted and I joined a gym the other week! I have been exercising regularly 3 to 4 times a week, and have even started the Couch to 5K to get me in to running! Those who know me know that I do not run! Although nothing major to report at the moment, I am hoping to see some results soon!

I did attempt to try some protein shakes to help aid the weight loss, but in all honesty, they made me gag and I just couldn’t drink it. So I have got myself some Raspberry Ketones and some Green Tea Diet capsules which are supposed to speed up the metabolism and combined with a good, healthy, balanced diet and exercise the weight should come off.

I am trying to be real and know that my 120lb goal weight to by August 2nd is more than likely not achievable now – but that doesn’t mean I can’t try right? Although I will be happy if I have at least dropped 2 dress sizes!

So, here we start again on my Fat Mama Slim Weight Loss Challenge!

I will be updating with new stats and how my week has gone every Monday. As before, I would love your support in helping me keep motivated!

The Starting Stats: 

  • Start Weight: 158lbs
  • Target Weight: 120lbs
  • Total Target Weight Loss: 38lbs
  • Start Waist Measurement: 38.9 inches

    I’m aiming for 140lb – 10st seems like a good weight to me 🙂 I’m at my weight watchers goal weight at the moment of about 150lb so not that far off where you are now.
    Good luck!! x
