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!

Slimming World – Week 23

I have not been successful this week. Lack of planning, too many syns, too much of everything.

Last Week: 17st 2.5lb (240.5 pounds)
This Week: 17st 6lb (244 pounds)

Sooo this sucks. I’ve been giving myself a kick up the butt, and this week I’ve done some meal planning, I’ve prepped lunch for a couple of days, and I’m making more of an effort to stick to my syns. I need to make a loss this week, no matter what!

Week 24 Goal: 17st 2lb (240 pounds)

Hoping I’ll crack this and get on track with my food. I have also signed up to some classes at my gym to increase how active I am – Pilates and Barre Fusion here I come!

Slimming World – Week 22

I did a quick drop-in to my slimming world group this week, I was busy on Saturday so I couldn’t stay to group unfortunately. I wasn’t particularly good last week, and I had 4 very bad food days, and the rest weren’t much better! unsurprisingly, I put on this week.

Last week: 17st 0.5lb (238.5 pounds)
This week: 17st 2.5lb (240.5 pounds)
Week 23 goal: 16st 13.5lb (237.5 pounds)

Next week I want to be down by 3 pounds, to get back on track for my goal of losing a stone by Christmas…thus for this week, I’ve been so much better with my food. There was some cake yesterday, but there’s the rest of the week for me to make up for that! I’ve been keeping track of my food in my little food planner, which is massively helpful!

I’m feeling positive, hoping I’m coming out of my food slump and getting back on track!!!

fingers crossed…

Slimming World Update

I’ve been part of Slimming World for 21 weeks. I have not lost any weight because I haven’t been following the plan – at the beginning I lost weight because I did actually follow the plan, but went off track and piled it back on again.

I’m not entirely sure about the reasons behind why I stopped or why I’m finding it hard to get back into it, but I’m trying. I recently bought a beautiful food and exercise planner, in which I can plan out my meals for the week and calculate how many syns I have. Getting into the habit of filling this out everyday is important, then I can integrate the Slimming World plan, and try the recipes I’ve been collecting.

For those who aren’t counting down yet – we have 7 weeks until Christmas. In that time I want to lose the stone I lost and put back on after starting slimming world. To achieve this, I need to be aiming for losses of 2 pounds every week. It’s time to get serious and push myself back into following the plan!

Week 21 weight: 17st 0.5lb (238.5 pounds)

Week 22 goal: 16st 12.5lb (236.5 pounds)

Week 28 (boxing day) goal: 16st 0.5lb (224.5 pounds)

 

Weigh In – Slimming Week 14 – 15

I forgot to post. Well, I didn’t forget, it was just difficult to blog without the internet in the flat…plus I’ve been work-busy-sleep-work-ing.

Okay, to catch up –

Week 13: 16st 9.5lb (233.5 pounds)
Week 14: Missed SW (oops, slept through my alarm) but I weighed at home: 16st 11lb (235 pounds)
Week 15: 16st 9lb (233 pounds)

Loss to Date: 2.5 pounds

To Lose for 6 week Goal: 13 pounds (By 10.10.15)

Annndd there it is. Not particularly looking forward to weigh in this Saturday, but I’ll try to keep my hopes up about it, and not eat biscuits at work!!!! (at least, don’t eat them so that I go over my syn count)

Goal for Next Weigh In: 16st 8lb (232 pounds)
