3.5 Pound Loss
I didn’t post a weekly weigh in last week as I’ve decided to post my results a week later. I kept forgetting, till late on Wednesdays, to do my update post. I try to stay off the computer in the evening so I can spend time with Ant and I didn’t like having to blog late in the evening.
Doing it a week later means I can schedule it and forget about it 🙂
So, last week, I stuck to plan all week and I lost 3.5lb. I was hoping for more (never satisfied!) but I’m happy with my result.
I’m pledging to lose the same again next week. I’m trying really hard to get out of the 24 stone bracket.
Lose weight with Slimming World
Just a quickie tonight because it’s late. I forgot to post earlier because I’ve been busy working on my old recipe posts. I’ve been updating the SEO and the images. I’m in the process of making better images so they stand out better on Pinterest.
I was expecting a gain at my Slimming World class this week because I’ve not been great at sticking to plan! I’m going to be better this week 🙂
The greatest loser award was given out today and we were all really happy to see Nicky win it with an 8 stone 5.5lb loss :oD
I’ve had a good week but I didn’t lose any weight this week. I was ill for most of the week which could be the reason so I’m not upset about it.
Next week the greatest loser will be awarded. I won it in 2015 and 2016 but this year a lovely lady will be getting the award. I’m really pleased for her because she’s done brilliantly. She’ll be getting her 8.5 stone award. It’s been a couple of years since I got my 8.5 stone award and currently, I only have my 6.5 stone award as I’m still struggling to lose the weight I put back in November and December last year.
I’ll be getting it back next year though because she’s nearly at target and I still have lots of stones to get rid of! Haha 🙂
A 7.5lb loss this week at Slimming World made me very happy, in fact, I’m delighted! I had pledged to lose 6lb this week and I worried whether I could actually do it. Seems that I can and I smashed it!
I wasn’t able to do the weighing at my group this morning, though. I started with a cold on Monday which has knocked me off my feet. A runny nose is bad enough to contend with but the pounding headache that’s accompanying it is horrible.
I didn’t go to work at the charity shop on Tuesday and I won’t be cleaning for my mother in law in the morning as I don’t want to pass this horrible virus on to her.
Hopefully, I’ll be better by Friday morning because I need to go and change the book display table at the charity shop.
I want to go for a big loss again this week because I want to get out of the 24 stone category and work towards getting my 7 and a half stone award back 🙂
I wasn’t very good at the weekend. Also, we indulged in the Tesco Valentine’s meal deal last night (which was delicious!) which wasn’t SW friendly! However, I was still a bit shocked at the 5lb Gain I got when I weighed at Slimming World this morning.
I’ve vowed to lose 6lb next week so I’ve really got to knuckle down this week and keep in control.
I did try to have today as a holiday so I wouldn’t have to face the scales it but my fellow social team members wouldn’t let me get away with it! I faced my gain and have got my head in place to get rid of it again, thanks to them 🙂
February 8th – 1.5lb loss
February 8th – I pledged to lose 3lb this week. I was still happy with 1.5lb loss, especially after the couple of weeks I stuck to plan and stayed the same.
I’m happy with any loss as long as I get a loss every week!
I’ve stuck to plan all day which is a big achievement for me. I got into the habit of having a cheat day on a Wednesday but it didn’t help my losses.
I found that if I don’t have a totally on plan day on a Wednesday, I went to have a rubbish week.
If I have a good Wednesday, I have a good week so I pledged to have a good day today and to lose 3lb next week.
I’ve got my cappuccino and Kit Kat to have for supper and that’ll be my syns used up.
Surprise 1lb loss
I didn’t have a very good week so I was happy with my surprise 1lb loss.
I’ve pledged to lose 3lb next week. I want to get my awards back and I need to lose half a stone to get my 7 stone award.
We had a taster at our group today to celebrate the couple of the year. Someone made a really lovely banana cheesecake and I forgot to pick up the recipe. I’ll have to ask the lady for it next week. It didn’t have a biscuit base so wasn’t like having proper cheesecake but it will be lovely just to have in the fridge for a low syn sweet treat.
I’ve stuck to my menu all week again and still gained 1.5lbs. I’m fed up.
I haven’t come home and stuffed my face, though, which is an achievement because all I wanted to do when I left Slimming World was buy chocolate.
I went to Poundstretcher with the intention of buying something to eat but decided not to.
Instead, I came home, checked what was on the menu for lunch and stuck to it.
I’m doing SP this week. I’ll just have to stick to it again and see how it goes. I’m going to try SP with having my full syns (I’m allowed 25 because of my weight). If that doesn’t work, I’m going to try Extra Easy next week but cut my syns to 15 and see how that goes. The only other thing I can try if that doesn’t work is to do SP with 15 syns.
If none of that works, I have no idea what to try. All those things would have seen me have great losses in my first year.
I’ve had another gain. 1.5lb last week and 2lb this week is not good. I’m not messing anymore. I’m back on Slimming World properly and I am going to lose 2 stone by Christmas.
It’s ridiculous. I should have been at target over a year ago and instead, I still have half my body weight to lose, which means another 12 stone has to go.
I’ve done a 4-week rolling menu using the 7-day menus on the Slimming World website, including my snacks, healthy extras and syns.
I’ve been totally on track today and I’m looking forward to my chocolate syns while I’m watching Bake Off!
I’ve had another gain due to all the baking we’ve done this week! We’ve had lots of different apple creations. We’ve been trying to use up all the apples from the tree. Apple and cinnamon cake, apple crumble and apple sauce are a few of the things we’ve made.
We’ve also been joining in with the blogger’s bake off linky run by Jenny at Mummy Mishaps so I’ve had Viennese whirls to contend with this week as well.
It’s not been easy for me, as you can tell from the gain!
I’m not expecting good things from this week either because I’m away for the weekend. I’m going to spend it at my best friend’s house and she’s said she’s getting the prosecco in :oD
If I maintain next week, I’ll be happy!
