I have found my second week on Slimming World easier then my first as i have not been craving chocolate and crisps as much as i did on my first week. I am actually really enjoying eating lots of fruit and salads now that the weather is getting warmer.
After i got weighed last week i did go off track a bit and i did eat a ham salad baguette with mayonnaise on from Gregg's and a cake but i synned them and got straight back on track and have found that i have stuck to plan all week. I have also found that i have been using less syns this week simply because i have been too full off all the meals and free foods that i have been eating to want anything else. I have mainly been using my syns on sauces to go with my food and the odd packet of crisps.
This week i have ate a lot of salads i have ate steak salad, ham salad and turkey salads. I have also had salt and pepper chicken as it so tasty, chilli, roast gammon and i tried diet coke chicken which was delicious and you find the recipe here .
I was really hoping for a 2.5 lb loss this week so that i would get my half a stone award and i was overjoyed on Thursday morning when i got weighed and seen that i had in fact lost exactly 2.5 lb meaning i have lost 7 lb in total. I got my first half a stone certificate and sticker and i am still slightly amazed that i have lost half a stone in just two weeks and have never once felt hungry or like i am dieting.
I could not stay to class this week as i had both the little ones with me as the other half was at work so i had no one to watch them, and there was noway i could have stayed to class with a 8 and 22 month old, they would have caused destruction and screamed the place down. I find staying to class helps motivate me and inspires me so i am hoping that i can stay on track and still get a loss this week.
I am hoping for another 2lb off this week although i am not getting my hopes up as i know that this week will be a star week and my chocolate and bread cravings will come back with a vengeance. But i am going to try and drink more water as i know i don't drink enough and everyone was saying last week that they had a good loss after drinking lots of water. I am also going to try and eat more speed foods and try some more new recipes so i don't get bored of eating the same things all the time.
