Weekly Update – Slimming World Result – Week 3

Slimming World week 3 result

It’s week 3 and I’ve been expecting a weight gain all week, not because I’ve not been on plan, but because I’ve been here before; I get back on plan and have a good week, stay on plan the next week and end up with a weight gain.

I promised myself that if it happened this week I wasn’t going to let it get to me and throw me off track. Turns out I didn’t need to worry!

Meal Planning Menu – Slimming World Menu Week 3

Meal Planning Monday Slimming World Vegetarian Menu

It’s been a while since I’ve done a meal planning menu because planning a menu every week became a bit hit or miss!
Now that I’m fully back on track with Slimming World I have to preplan a menu because it makes it so much easier to shop and helps keep me on plan.

We’re also cutting down on our meat consumption so the majority of our menus from now on will be vegetarian.
These are all new recipes to us so I’ll be adding the recipes to the blog as we make them and will link to them asap 🙂

Because I weigh at Slimming World on a Wednesday, our meal planning menus run from Wednesday to Tuesday each week, just in case you were wondering why I start on a Wednesday!

Meal Planning Menu Week 3 – 15th to 21st January

Wednesday – Asparagus and mushroom pasta

Thursday – Baked couscous with chunky vegetable chilli

Friday – Chunky vegetable soup

Saturday – Cumin scented falafels with sweet potato wedges and baked beans

Sunday – Colcannon with meat-free burgers and roasted carrots, onions and parsnips

Monday – Basil and chilli linguine

Tuesday – Curried lentils with ginger

Weekly Update – Slimming World Results – Week 2

The food diary I bought from Home Bargains is really helping me stay on track. Not only am I recording everything I eat, I’m also pre-planning menus and shopping lists for the following week and doing a weekly summary. This helps me focus on things that have worked well and things I plan to do the following week.

Slimming World Result Week 1

2019 wasn’t my year where Slimming World was concerned. I haven’t done very well but the fact that I’m still trying 6 years after joining is a win for me.
I’ve decided to try and do a weekly Slimming World result post and this is week 1.

I’ve bought myself a 12-week food diary from Home Bargains and I started totally back on track yesterday after getting weighed.

12-week food diary - Slimming World result


I had a huge 11lb gain but I enjoyed all the Baileys and chocolates and family meals with Christmas pudding for dessert so I’m not going to dwell on the gain.

After all the problems I’ve had with my hernia over Christmas, I want to be able to get it treated safely as soon as possible so I have to lose this weight.
