Chunky New Potato And Bacon Salad – Slimming World Recipe

Ant and I had this chunky new potato and bacon salad for lunch. It was very filling and would probably split between 3 portions rather than 2 for a lunchtime meal.

Sloppy Joes – Slimming World Recipe

Ella and Ant loved this recipe for Slimming World Sloppy Joes. They had theirs in homemade wholemeal rolls, but I’d already had my Healthy Extra for the day so I just had mine with Slimming World chips. We didn’t use Tabasco sauce in the recipe […]

Muller Jelly Delight – Slimming World Recipe

I had a Muller jelly delight most days when I first joined Slimming World. For some reason, I stopped having them and I don’t know why because I love them. I decided it was time to make some this week after seeing them at our taster […]

Shanghai Chicken – Slimming World Recipe

This Shanghai Chicken is going to be one of my go-to favourites, I just know it; I LOVE Chinese 5 spice! I’ll have to have it for lunch, however, because KayCee’s not a fan of Chinese 5 spice and will not be happy if we […]

Cheesy Colcannon Potato Skins – Slimming World Recipe

What can be better than a jacket potato on a cold January evening? A cheesy colcannon stuffed jacket potato, that’s what! We had baked beans and gammon with our potatoes, I just didn’t fancy speed foods, I needed some comfort foods!

Prawn Jambalaya – Slimming World Recipe

I love prawns. Ella loves prawns. I don’t think anyone else in the house likes prawns and this is a spicy prawn recipe so I don’t think even Ella will like this one. Which can only mean 1 thing – more prawn jambalaya for me!!

I Know You’ve Heard It Before, But….

It really is a new start for me this year on my Slimming World journey. I kept 7 and a half stone off for the best part of 4 years but over the last 2 years, I’ve gained 4 and a half stones back.

In November last year, I was very disheartened with it all and I took target to allow me to relax a bit and not be focused on failing to lose weight every week.
I really enjoyed Christmas and the New Year, so much so that over 5-6 weeks (not totally sure and not focusing on it either!) I put 1 and a half stone on.
When I weighed last week my total loss was only 3 stones and 1.5lbs.

We had new packs this year because there have been a few changes to the plan and also because Slimming World is 50 this year.
It seems to have spurred us all on to really go for it this year and I’m happy to say I lost 6.5lbs today. This gave me my 3 and a half stone award back.

I’m planning on losing 3lb this week and next week so I can get my 4 stone award back 🙂

I’ve got myself a notebook so I can record my syns and my body magic efforts; I used to do a lot more walking when I first joined SW so I want to get my exercise levels back up.
