Slimming World - Week One

Last week you may have seen that i joined Slimming World as i was feeling down about all the baby weight i have gained and felt it was time to do something about it. My first week went well i managed to stick to the eating plan really easy and was amazed at how much i could actually eat, as there was no weighing or calorie counting involved at all. 

 I did not feel like i was on a diet as i was eating big portions of the same meals my family were having and have never once felt hungry. I actually think i have ate more this last week then i did before i started, which is crazy. And after a few days i was feeling so much better i had more energy and my skin is starting to feel smoother which i am guessing is from getting rid of all the junk out my diet.

I have enjoyed roast chicken dinners, full English breakfasts, curry's, chilli and even cheeseburger in buns with chips and salt & pepper chicken with egg fried rice. All delicious easy meals just cooked the Slimming World way to make them healthy yet still very tasty. 

I was rather nervous about my first weigh in on Thursday as i felt like i had eating so much i could not have possibly lost any weight. So when i stepped on the scales and seen i had lost 4.5lb i was amazed. I am really hoping i can lose 2.5 lb this week and then i will have lost half a stone in just two weeks, fingers crossed. Although i may have ate a Gregg's sandwich and a cake after weigh in to celebrate, but i got straight back on track and had steak and salad for tea.


I found meal planning has helped me so much as if i know what i am having and have all the ingredients in then i am not tempted to eat anything i shouldn't be. I am not going to lie i am finding it tough at times to avoid chocolate as there is currently nine Easter eggs on the fireplace waving at me but i am trying to go cold turkey on chocolate as i know if i eat a bit i will end up scoffing the lot. 

I really did find my first week so easy and have been feeling so full off my meals that i have not wanted to snack. When i have snacked i have stuck to fruit and mullerlight yogurts and crab sticks. My biggest weakness is crisps and i have had some but i have a bag of wotsists if i fancy some as they are low in syns rather then the 3 bags of walkers i normally eat in a day. 

I am hoping that i can stick to plan this week and lose 2.5lb as we don't have any meals out or anything planned, so here is hoping i manage to avoid the Easter eggs and crisps.

Slimming world seems like it's done wonders for others I just couldn't wrap my head around green day red day and it all. Good luck and keep it up.Thank you so much for linking up to Share With me. #sharewithme

    1. I have made my daughter hide them in her bedroom so they are out of my sight. Thankfully all the green and red days have gone now and it is a new extra easy eating plan which is brilliant. xx
