A Slimming World Weigh In After Two Week's Off

It seems like ages since I have written a Slimming World post, with my last one being my 13 week update. I am now on week 16 of Slimming World. The reason I have not written an update for a couple of weeks is simply that I have not been to class, as I missed two weeks. The reason I missed two weeks is that the first week I was exhausted as Jacob has still not been sleeping and I just could not face getting myself and the two little ones dressed, ready and out the house by 8am to attend class. The second week I missed class as we had a last minute family day out at the beach, I ate fish and chips and had an ice cream whilst we were out. I'm not going to lie, I really enjoyed it.

This week I was determined to go to class as I knew that if I missed another week I would end up not going back and would fall off the plan, which is the last thing I want to happen. So I went to class on Thursday morning fully expecting a gain as I had not only had fish and chips and an ice cream but I also had a Chinese take away at the weekend too. 

I was amazed to find out that I had actually lost 2.5lbs, just half a pound away from my one and a half stone award. After 16 week's on the plan I was expecting to have lost a lot more weight then I have done if I am honest. I only have myself to blame as I have missed a few weeks along the way, which has not helped my weight loss at all. But I love the plan as it just goes to show that you can still go out and have a treat with family or a weekend takeaway, as long as you get back on the plan for the rest of the week you will still have a loss on the scales. 

This week I was really hoping to get back on track and stick to plan 100 % as I really want that one and half stone award, and also to get my two stone award by Jacobs first birthday in a few weeks. However, I am going, to be honest, and say I have totally not stuck to plan at all the last three days, in fact, I have been terrible. 

Thursday after class I came home and ate a battered chicken burger in a bun with chips from the chips shop for lunch. Friday we went out for lunch at a Mexican restaurant and I had nachos, a wrap with coleslaw and skin on fries and then half a portion of churros with chocolate dip. Then it gets worse as I had a chicken kebab wrap with half a portion of chips from the takeaway for tea. I woke up today feeling really bloated and rubbish but I have still eaten buttered toast for breakfast along with my two hi-fi bars, I skipped lunch as I was busy and ended up eating a bag of crisps and another hi-fi bar. I soon realised I needed to get back on track and have had a good tea of grilled lean pork steak with salad and new potatoes, which are all free foods. 

I am determined to try and stick to the plan 100 % for the rest of the week and I have planned lots of slimming world friendly meals for the next few days to hopefully keep me on track. I am just hoping this will be enough to minimise a big weight gain next week, but if I do have a big gain then I only have myself to blame. 

If you diet what helps motivate you to stick to it? I would love to know as I am finding it so hard to stick to plan during the summer holidays. 



  1. I love how you have been so honest in your weight loss posts and I think the amount you have lost in 16 weeks is fabulous and you should be proud of yourself xx

    1. Thank you Sam, I like being honest in them as I think most people do struggle when losing weight and writing it down makes me realise I need to focus more. Thank you for your kind words I think I just wish it would come off quicker as I have a lot to lose xx

  2. I think some weeks are harder than others to stick to a diet. But don't let s bad few days ruin your week draw a line & start again. Good luck x

    1. Thank you Laura, I think that is what I need to do and I thinking writing this down has helped me realise I need to get back on plan if I want to lose the weight xx
