I can not believe that i have been on the Slimming World diet plan for six weeks now, it has gone by so quickly! Anyway last week i was over the moon to have lost 4lb and i was determined to lose 2lb this week which would have meant i had lost a stone and i really wanted that one stone certificate and sticker. So this week i was really good and had no cheeky takeaways and all my meals were 100 % Slimming World friendly, i drank loads of water, ate more fruit and i even swapped the sugar in my hot drinks for sweeteners. My clothes have been feeling a lot looser so i thought i may have lost 2 lb this week and had my fingers tightly crossed.
On Thursday i stepped on the scales and i had only lost 1 lb. I admit i was gutted as i really wanted my one stone award. I know i should be happy i have lost weight but it is just a pound and that's not much especially when i had been so good all week. I think i also think because i have a lot of weight to lose that i should be losing weight quicker, but that does not seem to be happening at all.
Anyway i was unable to stay to class as i had to rush off for Sophia's hairdressers appointment, i left the group feeling a bit deflated about my small loss. And i ended up doing what i always do when I'm a bit down i went home and ate, i had a kitkat chunky and two bags of quavers. Did it make me feel better ? no not at all. I then went on to eat a turkey sandwich made on white bread with lashings of butter and some of the girl's chicken pop pops and a cheese dunker.
Thankfully i came to my senses and stopped eating before i could do anymore damage and had a Slimming World friendly tea of baked potato, salad and grilled pork. After my little blow out i felt rubbish and i realised that my taste buds have changed so much over the last six weeks as i did not like the taste of white bread anymore, it tasted like it was full of sugar and i ended up thrown most of it away. I use to love bread that was one of my biggest weaknesses so maybe i am starting to break my old eating habits.
This week i am expecting a gain, i have had my blow out yesterday and i also have my daughter Sophia's birthday this week as she is two on Monday. We are having a party on Sunday at the local soft play and we will probably have lunch out somewhere afterwards. Then on her actual birthday we are going out for a meal and then we are having a small tea party with birthday cake and i know i will be eating a slice or two of cake and probably won't resist the party food. But i am hoping if i can stick to the diet the rest of this week then it wont be to much damage.
I am also planning on giving it 100 % again next week and keeping my fingers crossed for that first one stone award. I brought the new magazine which is available to buy in class before it hits the shops and it is full of lots of yummy looking recipes, so i am planning on trying lots of new meals out this week too.
