Like many people my weight (and fitness) fluctuates. I’ve come to the conclusion that this is normal for the vast majority of people. For instance last summer I was going to the gym 5 times a week. Then I changed job and managed it twice in 3 months. You can guess what happened to my waistline.
It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go….I even missed it. It’s just that other things started getting in the way time wise.
So when I have two friends independently mention that they’ve decided to change that aspect of their life to me within 2 days – I took it as a sign.
I now have a gym partner in Mr H from work. The plan is that we’ll go together and help to motivate each other. Neither of us has any trouble once we get there, it’s the getting there that we need to help each other with.
I also have a ‘weight’ partner in Miss C. This is not a diet partner as I don’t do diets. They don’t work for me. Let me explain…. I go on a diet, loose weight, resent the diet, come off diet, put on weight…. Hence I don’t do diets anymore. Instead I try to change my lifestyle. It’s usually more sustainable. In fact I’m not planning to make that many changes in that area, just cut out some of the breaktime biscuits at work.
This morning I braved the scales and duly recorded the scary number displayed. So I’m back on the wagon…….
