I am now nine week's into my Slimming World weight loss journey and i am amazed with myself that i have actually managed to stick at it for this long, as i normally give up on diets within a few days or sometimes even hours. This just goes to show that the Slimming World plan is easy to stick to and incorporate into everyday family life. I eat the same meals as my family and don't ever feel like i am on a diet.
This week i have been fairly good i have had no takeaways or meals out and have ate all healthy home cooked meals. However i did go for afternoon tea on Sunday and had a few glasses of wine and a cake. I also have not been writing down what i have been eating and have not been keeping any kind of track on my syns so i have probably went over them.
Anyway on Thursday morning i went to class feeling unsure if i would have lost any weight and was expecting a small gain as i was feeling bloated and rubbish thanks to it being a star week. However i had lost 1 lb , i know it is just a pound but I'm actually happy with that this week as it is still a loss and at least i am losing and not gaining any weight. This brings my total to 1 stone 1 lb weight lost in nine weeks.
I also got my one stone award and sticker as there was different people on the weigh in desk last week so i did not get my award and i am shallow and like having my stickers and certificates as they motivate me to keep to plan. I was also sent this lovely little Summer recipe book full of tasty looking recipes that you can buy from the 15th of June priced at £3.95 at your local group.
This week i am going to go back to basics and start writing everything down, keeping track of my syns and hopefully i will have a better loss next week. As even though i am losing weight every week i would like to lose more then 1 lb a week if possible. I have already done a weekly meal plan and have lots of different meals to try this week and the grocery shop has been done with no treats for me. Although it is the other half's birthday on Wednesday and we are having either a meal out or a takeaway and even though i will try and order something healthy i just know it probably wont happen. Fingers crossed for a loss on Thursday as i just know i am going to be having a gain the week after as i am off to London for the weekend to attend Britmums Live and i know a lot of wine and un-slimming world friendly foods will be consumed.
