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.
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!
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.
