Ella after her bath
January 13th – I’ve been following a new plan from Slimming World and I’m not allowed potatoes, rice or pasta as well as selected fruit and vegetables. It’s based on filling up with low density and high protein foods. I’ve lost 6.5lb in 2 weeks. I’m enjoying it and not missing the carbs at all. Here I made swede chips for me and potato chips for everyone else. I’ve tried celeriac roasted and chipped as well and I love it!


Swede chips, sausages, eggs and beans
January 14th – Practising holding her pencil properly with the help of new Stabilo pens and pencils. Love the ‘tongue of concentration’ poking out! Review to follow.


Ella practicing her writing
January 14th – It’s been a very long time since I got Slimmer of the Week. I’m totally back on track and ready to put the rubbish year I had last year, behind me and get lots more of this weight off this year ๐Ÿ™‚
