Day 214 - Friday 1st August

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do” - Pope John XXIII (1881-1963), 261st Pope of the Roman Catholic Church

I have been trying to lose weight for a while and I have lost about 9lbs, which I am happy with. I have really good will power and do not eat the naughties (apart from some Peanut M&Ms that I am about to tuck into – had a bad day with ZoĆ«!!!).
However I cannot seem to lose anymore and I am fluctuating up and down by a pound or two over the course of a week, so today I have bought a Slimmer’s World magazine. I want to see if it is worth me joining Slimmer’s World as I think I just need that extra bit of help with knowing what foods I should be eating. And then by the end of the weekend I am going to make a final decision as to whether I am going to join or not. The local club has their meeting on a Monday evening, so this Monday could be my first one.
I have never followed any diet before so this may just be the thing that I need to shift that extra stone.

Good luck Claire, I have a very similar photo in my canera for today (great minds think a like).
Lunch with Kay today must have given you some encouragement in this direction. She is an inspiration to us all!
