Slimming World October Update

I have not posted a Slimming World update for a few weeks now as I was starting to find them a bit boring now that my weight loss has slowed down. I have decided that I am going to start writing monthly weight loss updates instead now, hopefully, these will be more interesting.

 October was a rubbish month for me Slimming World wise, I don't know what is wrong but I just seem to be losing and gaining the same couple of pounds each week. I just feel like my heart is not really into things at the moment and I admit I have not stuck to plan 100 % over the last few weeks. I have also missed a few classes due to my eldest having surgery and mine and Chloe's birthday celebrations.

Over the last month, I have been out for a few nice meals, had Chinese takeaways, birthday cakes and chocolate and just whatever I fancy really. Every day I say that I will get back on plan and every day I slip up, I have not written down what I am eating, I have not counted my syn's and I will be honest and say that I am amazed that I have not gained lots of weight. Over the last month, I have only lost 2lbs as I seem to lose a pound then put half back on the next week. 

I know that I only have myself to blame as I know that the plan does work if you stick to it and that to lose weight I need to stay to group every week, meal plan and write down my syns. I am glad that I have stuck at things though as normally I would have just given up and stopped going to group, I really want to lose this weight and I don't want to put back on the two stone that I have already lost. 

Tomorrow is the start of a new week and I have decided that I will get back on plan 100% next week, I have planned my meals I have a food diary ready and I will go back to basics writing everything down and counting my syns. I am defiantly taking the scenic route to lose this weight as I am losing it so slowly but I am two stone lighter then when I started and I know that if I stick to things and get my head and my heart back in the game then I will go on to lose even more weight. 

I have realised over the last few months that I am a classic comfort eater, I eat when I am bored or upset and even though I am better then I was I do still do this sometimes. If I am tired from Jacob not sleeping or if I am having a bad day I cheer myself up with a bag of crisps, then I feel rubbish and like I have blown my diet and then eat another bag or two and then I get unhappy about being overweight. I need to keep telling myself that eating crisps won't cheer me up it just makes me feel worse and if I can remind myself of this then I know that I can lose all of the weight and finally be happy with myself again and be able to wear all of my pre-baby clothes and feel comfortable in my own skin again.

I know I am rambling on now but hopefully by writing all of this down I can let someone else out there know that sometimes losing weight is hard, sometimes life does get in the way or we comfort eat. Sometime's it takes a lot longer then we planned to lose weight and quite often you will have bad days or weeks and gain weight. We are only human and it is ok if we slip up or gain weight, it is not the end of the world, yes it is disappointing but as long as you get back on plan you will lose weight and feel so much better for it, trust me.

If you are on a weight loss plan do you ever have weeks where you don't lose much weight and eat too much of the wrong foods?



  1. Ah good luck for next week - I am a comfort eater too! I am trying to be more organised and plan meals and go shopping for ingredients every 5 days (or send Steve!). When I do this it does work and stops me reaching for a takeaway x

    1. Thank you Sam, I agree if I plan means then I am much less likely to get a take-away as I always get them when I have not been shopping or don't know what I want for tea. I find it so hard as the children always have treats in the house xx


Thank you for commenting I read and reply to every single one.
