Slimming World Week Eight

You may have noticed that I did not do a Slimming World update last week as I had taken a week's holiday to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday. With it being her birthday I did have a few treats such as birthday cake and a tea party tea we also had a takeaway and meal out, although I tried to be good and stuck to a carvery when we were out with lots of vegetables and I ordered a chicken kebab with salad when we had a take-away.

I have tried sticking to plan the rest of the time although I have not been as strict with the plan as I was at the start and I need to start writing down what I am eating and keeping count of my daily syns as I fear I am going over them every day now. All of my meals have been on plan though during the last two weeks and I have eaten salads, roast dinners, chilli's, salt and pepper chicken with noodles and I even tried the mushy pea curry recipe which was surprisingly nice.

I was back at class this week and I was dreading weigh in as I was expecting a gain as my jeans are feeling a bit tighter and I did not feel like I had lost any weight and I know that I had not stuck to the plan 100 % the last two weeks. But when I stepped on the scales I had lost 1lb which I was more than happy with. I know it is just 1lb but that now means that I have lost my first stone since joining Slimming World eight weeks ago. I did not even realise I had lost a stone until I got home and looked at my book as I was not given a sticker or certificate in class so I am hoping I get them next week.

I admit that when I started the plan I was expecting to lose weight quickly then I have been, I thought that as I have a lot of weight to lose then I would lose weight quicker but sadly that does not seem to be the case at all. But like the old saying goes slow and steady wins the race and at least I am losing weight every week and everyone says the slower you lose the weight the more likely you are to keep it off in the long term.

My eating habits have defiantly changed in the last eight weeks and I think I have broken my habit of comfort eating when I am bored, I have also gone off a lot of foods that I use to eat such as white bread. I am eating a lot more fresh fruit and vegetables and we are having a fresh homemade healthy meal each night which is benefiting all the family, my other half has lost more weight than me just off eating the same meals as me on an evening. Yes, I am very jealous of him.

This week I am hoping to just lose 1lb if I am lucky as I have had a few treats so far this week such as a choc ice and a saveloy sandwich with pease pudding and stuffing on, oops. And later on today I am off to a blogging event at the Copthorne hotel for afternoon tea which will, of course, involve cakes. I am hoping that I can avoid some of the foods and not each much and then be extra good the rest of the week I might hopefully not put any weight on, but we will see on weigh in day on Thursday.

  1. Well done lovely, a loss is a loss and a stone so far is brilliant! I eat out way too much all the time at the moment, I really need to get it under control as I only have two pairs of jeans left that I can get into eek!

  2. Congratulations on reaching your first stone it's a huge achievement!

  3. My first stone loss was quite slow too. I found that once I started writing my food and syns down again I started doing better again, though i do still go off track some days. Well done on your loss :) x #slimmingworldsunday
