After gaining a pound last week i knew i had to get back into the habit of writing down everything that i have ate and plan my meals properly in advance. So i made a weekly meal plan and made sure i had all the ingredients available, and started to write in my food diary everything that i had been eating this week.
And it worked as i lost 2 lb this week, meaning i have lost 8 lb in four weeks. I know that is good but i admit i was feeling a little disappointed that all i have lost is 8 lb in four weeks, as i was hoping to lose around a stone. But all my children were 8 lb something born and thinking about it like this made me realise that i have actually lost a good amount of weight. And as they say slow and steady wins the race and at least i am losing the weight in a sensible way which means that i will be more likely to keep it off in the long run.
This week i have been eating more of the Iceland Slimming World ready meals and the noddle's were really nice. These meals are perfect for when you just can not be bothered or simply do not have the time to cook, great for busy mums like myself. I have also ate omelette's with chips and curry sauce, roast chicken, chilli, cheese burgers and chips and what tasted like enchiladas but without the wrap served with spicy chips and a side salad, it was amazing and best of all it was all free foods! I will be sure to share the recipe with you soon as it is the best slimming world meal i have tasted by far.
This week i am going to keep writing everything down, i am going to try a few new recipes as i am eating the same meals over and over and i am really going to try and drink more water as i hardly drink any and i keep saying i am going to drink more and then never do. I also need to eat more fruit and buy some sweetener for my coffees instead of using loads of syns on sugar.
So fingers crossed i manage to lose again next week as i would love to lose another 2 lb, although i did eat a takeaway last night and a bag of monster munch today so i am not exactly expecting to lose anything at this rate. Oh well as they say in class a bad day does not mean a bad week. If you have any tasty Slimming world meal ideas then do let me know as i really do need to start cooking more.
