Slimming World Week Five

This week was my fifth week on the Slimming World plan and i am finding the plan so easy now as i feel like i know what i am doing and no longer need to keep looking up every single thing i eat. I am also getting use to not eating as much bread as i normally would which has made me feel so much less bloated. I am also drinking less fizzy pop and have cut out crisps and chocolate and i honestly don't even miss them now.

Last week i had lost 2lb and i was hoping for another 2lb loss this week, however after my weigh in last Thursday things went a bit pear shape and i ended up having a takeaway for tea. I tried to be good and had a chicken kebab with salad but i also ended up eating half a portion of chips and a slice of garlic bread too. I got back on track the next day though and stuck to Slimming world friendly meals all week eating homemade burgers, salads, roast gammon dinner, slow cooked beef stew and i also tried the big mac style meal which was delicious. I stuck to around 10 syns per day which i mainly used on things like ketchup and extra hi-fi bars.

On Thursday morning when i went to get weighed i was hoping for a 1lb loss, but  as it was star week i was not sure i would get it especially after having a cheeky takeaway. But i somehow managed to lose 4lb's! I was amazed and utterly gobsmacked as i don't feel like i have done anything different to any other week this week and i feel like i have eaten loads. I have now lost a total of 12lb in five weeks which i am over the moon about as i have never once felt like i am on a diet or felt hungry .I am really hoping for another 2lb loss this week so that i get my one stone award. 

I am feeling so much better in myself since starting Slimming World i am feeling less tired and bloated and my skin is much better. I have more energy and the best thing is my clothes are fitting me better, my jeans are starting to feel loose which feels amazing. I am finding Slimming world so easy and most of the meals i am eating the whole family eat and as a family we are eating a lot more healthier tastier foods. I no longer buy sauces out of jars which we use to eat about 3 times a week before i started eating healthier. 

So fingers crossed for a 2lb loss next week i going to try some new meals this week and i have cut sugar out of my diet as i was drinking it in my tea and coffee but i have now swapped it for sweetener. I am also making an effort to drink more water and eat more fruit as i don't eat as much as i probably should do. If you have any tips or recipes then do please let me know as i am always looking for inspiration.
