I originally planned on posting all my Slimming World updates on a Wednesday, but as always life got in the way and I have only just found the time to sit down and write this now. After my amazing 5.5lb first weeks weigh in last week I was full of determination to lose 1.5lb this week and get my first half stone award. I sat down and meal planned and was all set for a good week but all my good intentions went out the window this week.
This week was star week, basically that time of the month, I know sorry for to much information. I have tried losing weight so many times before in the past and I know that whenever it is star week I put weight on before losing it the following week. I gained 1lb which although was a little disappointing was something that I was expecting as I know what my body is like.
Even though I had a small gain I made sure that I stayed to group like I promised myself I would do each week, as this is the only way that I stay motivated and on plan. I came away from group feeling motivated and have all my meals planned for the week and my fridge is full of healthy fruits, lean meats and yogurts ready to whip up some lovely syn free meals.
I was planning on posting what I had ate this week to give others ideas of meals to eat when on Slimming World, but I don't think anyone will want to copy me if I gained a pound. Anyway here is a quick look at what I ate last week.
Monday - Treat night - Tacos ( Not slimming World Friendly)
Tuesday- Meal out of chicken and salad.
Wednesday- Mayflower Chinese chicken curry with rice
Thursday- Grilled chicken and salad.
Friday- Homemade burger, chips and salad
Saturday- Pork steak, new potato's and salad
Sunday- Chicken curry with rice.
I had two weetabix with semi skimmed milk and topped with banana most days for breakfast, lunches I had quick meals such as Pasta & sauce, salads and jacket potato with tuna. I snacked on fruit, Mullerlights, Hi-fi bars and low syn crisps (my biggest downfall) such as quavers and wotsits.
I am really hoping that I lose 2.5lbs this week so that I can get my half stone award and share a more positive weigh in with you all next week, so far things are going well and I am writing everything I eat down and have been trying lots of new meals which I shall be sharing with you all next week. So don't forget to check back next Wednesday when I will most defiantly have my latest post ready and waiting for you to read.
If you are doing Slimming World have a great week and please let me know what your favourite low syn meal is in the comments below, as I am always looking for new recipes.
