Let me quickly introduce myself to the Slimming world…world. My name is Steve (Read more about me HERE) I have decided to join the group Slimming world as I am weighing in at almost 16stone (6ft tall) and only getting more heavy whenever I dare stand on a set of scales. Being a full-time single dad to 2 children I am now solely responsible for their meals and their general attitude to eating right and I am sick of always being tired and grumpy. I have literally no idea what I am doing and thought if I blog about it and share my journey maybe a few people in the know may help me out and we can make some sort of eSTEAM train…. I should be a motivational speaker with sentences like that!!!
Talking to my sister she started explaining to me about Sins (Syns), Free food and speed food. Well, I thought Syns were committed on a night out after 5 pints Free food is when the restaurant messes up your order and gives you another meal as a goodwill gesture and speed food is when you nip out for a quick drive through. I have so much to learn, but I am determined to do this.
I have set myself three goals and a time limit of a year. I will learn later if I am being over ambitious or not ambitious enough. The fact is simple though, I am getting bigger every time I look in the mirror. My clothes are getting snug (more than snug) and I hate skinny jeans. At 32 years old I am not getting any younger so I need to start looking after myself. My goals are to:
- Understand what I am eating and the nutritional information on the packaging, I aim for green generally but I don’t have a clue what any of it means
2. As a full-time single parent, It is my responsibility to feed my children a decent diet. I don’t want them to be on a diet but If I eat right they will also eat right, That can only be a good thing.
3. If I lose 3 stone (Taking me down to 13stone) That would be nice too.eat healthier and feed my children food that is better for them. If I lose 3 stone (Taking me down to 13stone) That would be nice too.
