Happy January! I know the world and their dog are making promises to themselves and pledging to be happier and healthier in 2013. I usually scoff at such nonsense but this year I find myself jumping on the January bandwagon.
I have been asked by Weight Watchers to be one of their blog ambassadors for 2013.
I first started Weight Watchers back in 2010, and in just over 6 months I lost nearly 3 stone, I found their Propoints programme really worked for me. Unfortunately after the death of my Mum I struggled to stick to any sort of diet and pretty much baked and ate my way through my grief. While in hindsight I wish I hadn't I know that baking and getting lost in the kitchen really helped me through that difficult time.
Now, I find myself back to square one, back to the exact weight I was when I began in 2010...
My main reason for starting this Propoints programme is my health, I wish to improve my fitness and general overall health. I am not looking to be a size 8 or squeeze into skimpy clothing. I am a great believer in the fact that people can be healthy at any weight, I know people who are size 16-18 who run marathons, and people who are size 10 who eat junk and couldn't run to the end of the street! It is all about the individual and as long as I feel fit and healthy in myself, I'll be a happy bunny.
So, now for the scary bit...
My starting weight is: 17stone 8lbs
My first goal is 5% so: 16st 9lbs
So wish me luck, and look out for healthy recipes, challenges and the like in the near future. Do not fret, I am still planning on blogging non-diet recipes and treats on occasion.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year!
