I know. I have been away for a while. I needed to get back into this blog and the reason I originally started it in the first place.
I just signed up to Weight Watchers 360. This means I have access to pretty much every avenue to Weight Watchers. I can go to meetings, I can just do it online, I have access to the apps and the website to track both my food and my activities. I had to do this, I weighed myself this evening, and I was shocked. I hadn’t realised it but I had put on weight recently. I am currently 150.1 kg. That works out to be about 330lb to those who only think in pounds, or 23.5 Stone to those in the UK. That is now officially the highest I have ever weighed. My previous worst was 149.7kg. The last time I weighed myself I was about 142kg, so the weight has sneaked up on me and I really do have to so something about it. I have 3.5 years until my trip to the US in 2019. I don’t expect to lose all my weight by then (I need to lose about 89kg!), but if I don’t start now I won’t be able to fit onto the plane at all!
I had a dreadful weekend this past weekend. It was Mothers Day here on Sunday. I hate Mothers Day. It just rubs salt into the wound of my not having children, and that I will never have children. So I spent a large part of the weekend crying. Some people just don’t get it. They are usually the ones with the children who think I should be thinking more about my mother on Mothers Day. They just don’t get it. I went to church once on Mothers Day. s I walked into the foyer, they had a small table set up and the Counsellors to the Bishop were there, handing out flowers and chocolates. As I came into the foyer, one of them said (quite loudly), ‘You can’t have any. You’re not a mother!’ Thanks a lot! As if I didn’t already know that.
