A Slimming World Update

I have not done a Slimming World post for a few weeks as I missed two weeks. The first I had put a holiday in for as I was off to London for the weekend to attend Britmums Live and then the week after I ended up being a chicken and avoided class as I had a bad week and thought that I would have gained weight. This really is not the best thing to do as I have no idea if I had lost or gained weight, I wish I had of just went to class got weighed and faced the scales. 

So this week I did exactly that I faced the scales and was expecting a huge gain as I know I had not stuck to the plan on the week i had taken off  and I was just crossing my fingers that the gain would not be too bad. So imagine my utter amazement when I stepped on the scales and found that I had actually lost 3 lb and had not gained any weight, I was overjoyed.

Having such a good loss after having a week off and not sticking to the plan by having a week of takeaway's and wine had not ruined my diet at all. I really think that I have cracked my old overeating demons now as I no longer snack on crisps and biscuits. I can happily avoid the biscuits and crisps and I no longer crave bread and chocolate, not even at that time of the month which is a shock. 

Having a loss this week has motivated me to get back on track and focus 100 % on the plan as I know that the plan does work and I don't ever want to go back to my old eating habits. I want to lose this weight once and for all and fit into my pre-baby clothes again, as I have some gorgeous dresses packed away that I would love to wear again someday. 

This week I have planned all my meals in advance and will be trying out lots of new recipes as I was getting bored of eating the same meals over and over again. I have also stocked up on lots of fruit as the whole family is eating tons of fruit lately too which is a great as I want them to eat as healthy as possible. My ten-month-old has a plate full of cucumber and melon, apple or strawberries every day for lunch as they are his favourite foods. 

I am really hoping for another good loss this week and I am hoping that by trying new meals and keeping track of my syns I will have a 3 lb loss which would get me my one and a half stone award. I am not getting my hopes up though as I have eaten two magnums so far this week without realising they had a whopping 12 syns in each! I have found a recipe for syn free strawberry ice cream in one of my recipe books so I will be giving that a try over the weekend to see what that is like. 

I have found that this lovely weather has also made me want to eat healthier too and fruit and salads are a lot more appealing at the moment, as I really hate cooking in this heat. So fingers crossed those two cheeky Magnums have not done too much damage and I get another loss this week.
