Slimming World Week 4

I was expecting a gain. I hadn’t been on plan aaand that always means a gain.

What I didn’t expect, was to be quite as upset by it as I was.

I felt like I was spiraling, and I wasn’t sure how to stop it. I didn’t want to get bigger and put on more weight, and I was panicking about how to get myself under control. A little understanding and a cuddle helped me pull back from the panic precipice. Afterwards I began to plan, and I started to feel better – more in control. I’ve not been perfect, but having planned out dinners has really helped.

Slimming World Week 2

Put on a pound this week, I’m not too worried though – it’ll come off again next week! Plus extra – hopefully. Just need to keep myself under control with my syns!

Total loss: 2 pounds

Planning to do a lot of meal prep and planning this week…aiming for a 2 pound loss this week.

Slimming World first week weigh in

Week 1 back at slimming world, and weigh in went well.

I’m 3 pounds down this week, bringing my total weight loss so far to… 3 pounds. I am pleased, but I also could have done better! I was well over my syns on a few days this week, so I’m lucky to have had a loss!

Andrew and I are having a date day tomorrow, so I’ve planned a 3 course meal, Slimming World style. I’m coking a few things from last years SW Christmas recipe book – the main course being duck in cherry sauce – so looking forward to it!! If I remember I’ll post a few pics…can’t promise anything though…It might be too delicious to stop and take a pic (hopefully)!

PS…it’s not too early for Christmas decorations, right? 😉

March Goals

Happy March…

I have been so inactive on here, my apologies!

January was hard – I had to leave Slimming World due to financial difficulties, so it took me a little while to adjust to that. Then February came and flew by; it was a busy one for me, my birthday month so you can imagine what my eating habits were like! On the more positive side, I’ve been doing pilates and spin classes every week, and I’ve been dipping my toes back into running. So on the exercise front, I’ve been doing really well and I’m proud of myself for sticking with my classes.

Alongside this, I’ve had a couple of health checks – one in January, and one on 1st March. In these they measured my body fat, which I am interested in keeping track of…here’s how I’m doing this year…

Body Fat…

January BF: 45.5%

March BF: 43.79%

Difference: -1.71%

Weight…

January: 250.5 pounds

March: 252 pounds

So I have put on weight since the beginning of the year (not much, I might add!) BUT, I have lost body fat sooo…that’s a win for me! I’m trying to eat well through March, and keep up with exercising regularly – which I have been doing with pilates and spin.

Fingers crossed for more loss at the end of March!

Hitting Restart

2015 has passed us by, and I’m heavier than ever. I had a lengthy chat with my Slimming World consultant before Christmas, and we’re going to hit the restart button on my weight loss. Fresh for 2016.

2016 Restart

On that note, I have a clean slate and a new start weight.

Start Weight: 17st 11lb (249 pounds)

After Christmas weigh in: 17st 12.5lb (250.5 pounds)

30-01-16 goal: 17st 5lb (243 pounds)    -7.5 pounds

I’m feeling positive, and have lots of inspiring recipes to try out. January is going to be a good month!

Slimming World – Week 26

Hallooooo,

Another week has gone and Christmas is getting closer. With the holiday season comes many, many temptations. Some of which I have to admit I did indulge in…

Last week’s Weigh In: 17st 4.5lb (242.5 pounds)

This week: 17st 4lb (242 pounds)

An unexpected loss of 0.5 pounds. Excellent! I’m glad I’m heading in that direction, and I’m feeling positive about the coming week. I’ve printed a plan to follow and have been shopping to get the foods required for it, so far so good. I just need to avoid the holiday cheer until at Friday! I have my work Christmas party which I plan to enjoy on Friday evening…so I’ll be weighing in early next week too.

Goal for Next week: 17st 0lbs (238 pounds)

Slimming World – Week 24 & 25

Hello All!

I neglected to post last week, so this week we have a 2 in 1. Good times.

So, here we go…

Week 23: 17st 6lb (244 pounds)
Week 24: 17st 3lb (241 pounds)
Week 25: 17st 4.5lb (242.5 pounds)

Hmm…kind of good. The good outweighs the bad over the last 2 weeks, a 1.5 pound loss overall. Finally seeing a little bit of a loss this week!

Planning things out and making an effort to include more speed foods in my meals is the way forwards, and avoiding the office snacks that have crept back in!!! damn holiday season…(JK I love Christmas).

I’ve started going to the gym again, keeping this up will hopefully boost my weight loss this week and launch me into a good streak in the run up to Christmas. Not long to go now…

Goal for Next Week: 17st 0lb (238 pounds)

really pushing for a big loss this week!
