January is nearly over…..

Wow how quickly does time fly….only 4 days left of January. How has it been for you?

Sticking to a healthy diet has been hard when you see some really good offers on the bad snacks like pizza, chocolate biscuits, crisps…..hmmm.  With the cold nights and the convenience of fast food at the touch of a button, can be hard to resist.  However the support of my family, friends and students in my Zumba classes I have not strayed too far.

At my last weigh in at Slimming world on 17th Jan I was 1lb away for losing 4 stone.  I never thought it would be this hard to lose 1lb….and believe me it has been hard….but I am now back focused on my goal.  My next weigh in will be next week….fingers crossed I would have made it to 4 stone.

Zumba Toning classes will be starting in February…..watch this space

I’m a Loser!!…….I’ve lost 1lb

What a great start to 2012.  I had my first Zumba class last night and lost 1lb.  A pounds sounds small but it is huge amount to lose over New Year.  This brings me to losing a whopping 53lb in a Year!!!  (3lbs away from 4stone)

Tonight is the start of the Biggest Loser on ITV.  I totally love watching this show as it reminds me that I am not the only person out there struggling to lose weight.

To celebrate my loss I have made Slimming World Seafood Paella as I have not had a King Prawn in ages……….and it tastes soooooo good.

How is your New Year resolutions going, fancy ticking on of your list by joining me at one of my Zumba classes?  Take a look at classes schedule on my site.  I hope to see you soon.
