At each stage of your journey you will be faced with a different set of challenges, as you overcome each of these you’ll probably find your next hurdle is waiting right around the corner. In this post we try and get into a slimmer’s head and see what is going on in there at various points of their journey. From the highs to the lows, this is a slimmer’s journey.
“I had my first appointment with my Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant today. I’m so ready to finally make this change… but I’m scared, what if I’m hungry? What if I don’t have the willpower to see me through this? What if it doesn’t work? I guess all I can do is try…”
“Oh gosh, the past few days were tough! I can’t believe how much water I’ve been drinking, it feels like I’ve seen more of the inside of a toilet cubicle in the past few days than I’ve ever seen before in my life!
My friends at work keep telling me that I won’t be able to do it, they’re making me doubt myself a little bit.
I went to bed early yesterday, so that I didn’t feel tempted to keep poking my head into the snack cupboard… I woke up today feeling like I had loads more energy, I’m starting to think I can actually do this!”
Day 7 – (First weigh in)
“I cannot believe what I have just seen on the scales in my Consultant’s office… I started checking to see if a limb had suddenly fallen off that I hadn’t noticed! I’ve never lost this much weight in a week before, it’s unbelievable. Knowing I can do this in a week I’m finally starting to see the end of the tunnel, maybe, just maybe, I’ll make it to my goal this time!”
“I’m halfway to my goal now, the Plan has become a breeze. I’ve got into a proper routine, I wake up every morning with bundles of energy. I practically skip downstairs to make up my first product of the day – usually a Shake in the week while I’m on the go, and a Porridge at the weekend so I can sit down and savour it. I’ve found some really great product hacks on the CWP blog too that have inspired me to get creative! I’m loving the iced coffee.
I’m feeling great – my face is looking totally different, my clothes are so loose now they look a bit silly, I’ve taken to belting everything at the moment. I have no idea what to wear when losing weight, I’ve been hiding my shape for long! People at work are starting to notice too which is an amazing feeling.
People are starting to tell me I should stop now, that I don’t need to lose anymore… I do feel wonderful now. Maybe I should?
But there’s still a dress at the back of my closet that I’d love to squeeze into again, and with that big event only a few months away… My Consultant is so supportive and encouraging, I think I would have fallen off the wagon a long time ago if it wasn’t for them… I’m going to carry on a little bit longer…”
“I DID IT! I am so proud of myself! I can’t believe I ever considered stopping before I got here…
I can’t stop looking at myself in the mirror, my head hasn’t quite caught up with what I see in front of me – is that really me? Did I really just buy a size 10 dress from Topshop? Sometimes I don’t even recognise myself when I walk past the mirror.
I can go into any shop now and pick something of the rails and know it will fit. I have the confidence to wear skinny jeans, me! In skinny jeans!
I’ve discovered foods I had no idea I liked, and learned so much about what I’m eating and portion control, I was definitely overfilling my plate before and not being very conscious about what I was having. Who knew I liked vegetables so much!
I’ve started pouring all my extra energy into exercise as well… I’d never stepped foot in a gym before Cambridge Weight Plan and now I’m going to dancercise classes every week, and making friends!
The best bit is that I proved everyone wrong who said I couldn’t do this! They can’t believe their eyes now!”
