I love my children dearly. I wouldn’t change them for the world. But as much as I love them, I do not like the toll that 2 pregnancies have taken on my body.
I have never been ‘slim’. Even when I swam competitively and had to have body fat tests, I was never slim.
But I was a lot lighter on the scales before I had children. I know it’s inevitable that the lbs creep up and I look in envy at friends that shrank back to their pre birth weight in what seemed like a day after giving birth.
I have most definitely not ‘popped’ back into shape. And I most certainly have not shrunk back to the size I once was.
When I’m on a diet or the latest fad, I usually do pretty well as I have a good determination to succeed.
I just can’t sustain it.
It’s when I’m eating as normal, cooking and eating with the rest of the family, that my will power takes a hammering.
So I am beyond excited and thankful to team up with Diet Chef.
Carefully selected, calorie controlled meals, prepared by a chef and nutritionist and delivered to my door.
Diet Chef allows you to choose your menu for each day and there is a whole host of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks to choose from. 28 days worth of meals all delivered in one hamper. You can view the Menus here.
A 4 week plan costs £61.25 a week/ £245 a month.
Every Monday I will write up my Weekly Weigh In and share with you my progress; lbs lost, inches lost, hopefully!
I will be teaming this with taking up running. Crikey! From blogging to jogging, who would have thought, hey? I’ll give it a go! Lyn, you might get your new running partner after all!
I am hopeful that with the support of Diet Chef and the fact that I’m sharing my progress with you guys (a bit of peer pressure) I will achieve my goals or at least be well on the way to achieving them.
So here goes. Wish me luck and I will see you next week for an update and hopefully some positive news.
