Slimming World - Week 1

This time last year I started Slimming World for the first time. I had put a lot of weight on during and after pregnancy and I was desperate to shift some of it. 

I stuck at it and worked for me and I lost over a stone in just a few weeks, I felt great! Then for some reason I just lost all motivation and once the motivation went through the window I just forgot about it and resumed with my bad eating habits.

Fast forward a year and I have put that stone back on and more. This time I am sticking at it, I need to. I am fed up of feeling unhealthy and frumpy and it's horrible being overweight in the summer. 

Last week I started Slimming World for the second time with the aim to loose over 3 stone which I have rounded to a neat 50 lbs. I can't remember the last time I was 50 lb lighters so I may loose 35lb and think that's enough, I don't know. 

I know where my bad eating habits are and the main issue is snacking and snacking late at night. You can still do this on Slimming World but swap those naughty snacks to healthy ones. Or even better you can save a few syns for an evening chocolate treat. That's what I love about Slimming World, you can still indulge and eat your favourite foods you just have to make changes to the way you cook and of course syn those little naughty extra's! 

Here are some photo's of what I ate last week. 

I was good as gold all week and even had syns left over on some of my days. I felt motivated and determined to stick at it this time and then came the weekend! I had a few blips..

A Chinese takeaway
Some crisps
Chocolate... oops.

I was kicking and cursing myself because my willpower is dreadful. With my weekend blips in mind I didn't think I would of lose anything this week but I was shocked to discover that I did! 

I lost 4lb!

So that's another 46 lb's to go!
I can do this!

  1. It's really interesting to see what you ate. I also lost 4lbs in my first week (and I didn't have any chocolate or chinese!) and I'm happy with that as I'm only really wanting to lose a stone to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I find lunch to be the hardest meal because I used to have sandwiches and I get pretty bored of salads quite quickly.

    1. You don't have much to loose hun, I do. Urgh! That's probably why I managed to still loose 4lb, because I have more weight to shift. On my first week the first time I started Slimming World I lost 7lb!

      I struggle with lunches too because I used to have sandwiches and crisps!! x
