Mystery Slimmer

Celebrating Non-Scale Victories

OK, so my experiment this month didn’t really work! I was planning on not finding out my weight each week, but at the first weigh in I accidentally caught sight of a one pound gain, and that was that! Small though it may be, this month’s 1.5lb loss has taken me to my...

The Importance of Being Active

My swimming has been hit and miss this month, and I think this is the reason I have gained 1.75 inches in spite of losing 4lbs! I am totally gobsmacked by this! If I ever needed added motivation and incentive to keep up with regular swimming, this is it! I’ve...

Dare to Believe – Dare to Dream!

I can’t begin to explain how good it feels to finally report PROGRESS in my weight loss journey! I am now officially at my lightest since I joined my slimming club and I feel as though the tide has finally turned. It was that young lady who inspired me to do better....

Choice Power

I’ve been inspired this month by a young lady at my slimming group who has lost 13.5lbs in three weeks. What’s more, when it was Mother’s Day (she’s a mum) she also celebrated her birthday that week and yet still chalked up a whopping 5.5lbs loss. What??? This is...

100% Commitment Required

Oh dear. Another month with not much to show for it. Where does it all go wrong? I remember my consultant asking me this more than once. “You’re so determined when you leave group each week. Where does it all start going wrong for you?” The fact is, I don’t always...

Fail to Plan – Plan to Fail

For the last two weeks I’ve been very focused, and I’m still feeling strong and determined. I want to end the year on a high! I’ve gone through positive phases like this before, but one thing has proven my downfall - a failure to plan. The first thing a weight loss...

No Longer a Spectator

It’s three years ago since I first hit my current weight, and I’ve been hovering around there ever since, give or take a few pounds. Whilst I’ve been riding this weight loss/weight gain seesaw, I’ve seen numerous friends shed the pounds and achieve their targets. Just...

One Pound at a Time

I went to a wedding last week and wore a dress that fitted very tightly the last time I tried it on. In fact, on that occasion I needed assistance from body sculpting underwear to ensure that all my lumps and bumps were suitable disguised! However, last weekend my...

Why Weight Loss Might Sometimes Plateau

I’ve been all over the place this month. One week I had a massive 4 lb gain, then followed this the next with a 3½ lb loss. But I am disappointed with an overall 3 lb gain. I need to get my act together and decide what I really want! Why does weight loss reach a...

Reaching the Finishing Line

A 1.5lb loss isn’t exactly setting the world alight, but it’s all mine and I’m hanging on to it! If only I’d hung on to all those pounds I’ve lost over the years, I’d probably weight in at minus 15 stones instead of the weight I am now. Oh well! So, last month I...
