Hello World! Happy New Year to one and all.
Things are going to be a little different around here from now on, do not fear there will still be pictures of cake but I’m also going to be sharing a lot more about myself *gulp*
When I was asked by the wonderful Nellycupcakes if I’d be interested in joining her as one of the 2013 Weight Watchers Blog Ambassadors, I kept writing the reply “Thank you for thinking of me, but no” but I couldn’t hit send. I kept staring at my answer and knew that this was an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down.
I first joined Weight Watchers January 2012 and within 4 weeks I had reached my first goal of a 5% loss. I felt incredible but then I think I got a little cocky, thought I’d got this weight watchers thing down and stop tracking food daily. It wasn’t until July that I reached my next goal and since then, pretty slowly some weight has crept back on. In total I lost 1st 4lbs but half of that is now back on me, hovering around the weight I was when I reached that first goal, however I do not feel incredible like I did then.
This is why I knew I couldn’t say no, the focus and support I will receive by being an Ambassador will be the push I need to get me beyond that first goal, smash the second and get to a weight again that I can be proud of.
So thank you in advance for your support and patience, I hope that I don’t bore you all too much or get preachy. I’ll be sharing healthy recipes (and naughty ones too) meal planning, challenges that Weight Watchers set us and all the ups & downs of this journey.
oh and P.S –
Current Weight: 11st 9.6lbs
First Goal: 11st 1.6lbs
