Fat Club – So it begins!

New year, New baby, bugger… same body!

Last night, with my lightest clothes on, compulsively emptied bladder (wee weighs you know!), and all jewellery removed, I set off to Weight Watchers to rejoin. I’ve done WW before with much success on the Points plan and to be honest was itching to get started.

Not sure why I'm grinning actually - I've just started dieting?!

On arrival everything was locked and everyone was queuing outside, on the busiest road into town, at 7pm (so it was busy) under a neon orange banner… no doubts about what we were all doing here then! The Leader was late and I was in a good sized queue but that was ok; gave me time to do pelvic floor exercises whilst listening to the ladies around me (Anyone who has ever been to a “fat club” before now will know what I mean when I say that at these classes, it’s no holds barred – there seem to be no inhibitions and people are very happy airing all manner of personal news and gossip quite publically, so just stood listening can be amusing!).

My turn… I reregistered, stripped off as much as I could whilst still remaining decent, breathed out (air weighs you know) and jumped on- 14 stone. This may sound a lot to some people but six weeks after a baby, I’m thrilled (I was 14st 7 when I fell pregnant!) and apparently I don’t look my weight (damn good job really!). I told the Leader I wouldn’t be staying, even though it was my first time back for a year nearly, and I was fine as I was just going to follow the plan as before. Apparently not – the “old” plan no longer exists and there is a whole new way of working out your foods etc. Buggeration! Guess I was staying then.

The class was hysterical! The Leader is a lunatic who constantly goes off at a tangent but is very amusing and I think I’ve now grasped the new way of eating/planning meals though next week will be the test of that! So a week of reading, pointing, checking and drinking water until I feel like I’m drowning internally to give myself a kick start.

I’ll report back next week on my first (hopefully) loss and let you know how the class goes!

PS Doesn’t anyone know why my “fat club” is full off skinny people, I could eat some of the lovelies who were weighing in yesterday and still stay within my points allowance!? Hmm!

    1. Yes, I’ve spent many an under-dressed evening sat in a cold town hall with rubbish coffee, hard seats and the knowledge I haven’t lost a stone in the last week.

      And yet I keep going back lol!
