Slimming World Week Six

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 hairdresser's 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 any more 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 won't 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.
