I am now on week 20 of the Slimming World plan, it seems so long and if I am honest I am feeling a bit deflated and disappointed that I have not lost more weight then I have so far. I have only lost one and a half stone and dropped a dress size, I can't help thinking that because I have a lot of weight to lose I should have lost double that in this amount of time. I know that I only have myself to blame though as I missed week's over the summer and did not stick to plan 100 % and if I had of stuck to it and not missed groups I could have lost more weight.
Anyway what is done is done and their is no point in dwelling on it as the past can not be changed, as long as I commit myself to going to my new group every week and try my best then I will lose weight. It might just take me a bit longer then I hoped it would.

This week was ok diet wise I did have one takeaway which I hold my hands up and admit too but I was good and ordered a chicken kebab with salad, however I did also eat a few chips and two slices of garlic bread. Apart from that one cheat meal every single meal I ate this week was on plan, I made an effort to drink more water, I ate more fruit and I really thought I would have a loss on the scales and was hoping for 2lb.
However on weigh in day I felt really bloated and rubbish and I was not feeling so positive about a loss this week, I was proved right I had gained 1.5lbs and I admit I am disappointed. I stayed to group and realised that even though I had been on plan with my meals I really need to get back into the habit of writing everything I eat down and keeping track of my syns. The odd cheeky biscuit with my cuppa probably isn't helping my weight loss.
I was all motivated to get back on track this week and get that gain off plus some more as I am so desperate for my two stone award. I am not holding my breath though and fully expect another gain this week as even though we have had no meals out or takeaways I am so tired as my son has not been sleeping and has been waking at 5.30am every morning. I am shattered and I am surviving on lots of coffee at the moment as well as toast for breakfast and the odd cheeky biscuit as I am craving sugar and carbs to get me through the day.
I am determined not to give up and if I keep going to class and keep making sure my meals are on plan I am sure that I will start seeing some losses on the scales soon. I really want my two stone award and hopefully even a three stone award by Christmas if I am lucky.
So that's how my week has been a bit of a write off but I am only human and sometimes life gets in the way of dieting and good intentions. I know I am in this for the long haul and losing weight is not going to happen over night. The positive is that I am one and half stone lighter then I was when I started and if I had not of joined Slimming World I probably would have gained more weight.
