Fourth Weight Loss In A Row!

I’m on a roll with Slimming World at the moment. I’ve had my fourth weight loss in a row. It’s been a long time since I’ve been so committed and I’m really pleased to finally feel back in control.

Fourth Weight Loss

fourth weight loss - 1lb off

It’s just a short post from me today because I woke with a headache this morning that has slowly been turning into a migraine. I was doing really well as well. I’d been headache free for 5 days.

I was supposed to be going for lunch with the Slimming World ladies but I was in too much pain so I had to miss it 🙁

3 Weeks And Still On Plan At Slimming World

I’ve survived a few tempting meals this week. KayCee and Ella had some friends for a sleepover on Saturday so we had a takeaway. I was very tempted to have cheese and coleslaw on my jacket potato but instead, I had beans.

The next day KayCee had even more friends over for a murder mystery lunch to raise money for Macmillan. She served warm sausage rolls, chicken dippers, dips, cheesy Doritos, breadsticks and other goodies. When it came to clearing up afterwards, I didn’t touch a crumb of anything! Usually, I’d have finished off the leftovers but I really wanted to lose another 3lb.

I didn’t manage to lose 3lb at my Slimming World weigh in but I did lose 2lb and I was very happy with that. It’s been a long time since I’ve lost weight for 3 weeks in a row 🙂

3.5lb Loss – Happy To Be Back On Track

I started back on Slimming World last week and was really happy with my 8lb weight loss. As you may know, I’ve been struggling with Slimming World for a few years. I’ve had plenty of new starts and always get a great result the first week.
The second week, even though I don’t do anything different, I usually end having a weight gain. It gets me down when I’ve tried hard all week and don’t get the results. I expected the same to happen this week but I was so happy when I had a 3.5lb loss 🙂

Back On Track

I feel like I’m properly back on track now, especially as Aiden’s doing it with me again, like on my proper first week. We were delighted with his first weigh in which resulted in a 12lb loss!!

First Week Back At Slimming World – 8lb Loss

My head was back in gear last week after the break I took from Slimming World. I started back as a new member, but I kept my weight loss history. There’s no way I’m losing that after all this time!
My 8lb loss was a surprise but I was delighted 🙂

I took some food diaries home and just got my head in the new member place. I measured everything, counted every syn and recorded it all in my food diary.

8lb Loss By Sticking To It 100%

To keep me on track, I made extra chilli last night and served it with cauliflower rice for my lunch. I know from previous experience that if I have a good Wednesday, I have a good week.

I’m not doing treat days anymore because they don’t work. They just set me on the wrong path and I end up trying all week to undo the damage from 1 day. It’s just not worth it.

3lb Loss

I’m aiming for a 3lb loss this week. It will take me back to the 25 stone category and give me my 5 stone award back.

I really want my 8.5 stone award back and I feel like I’m finally in the right place to get there.

Took a Break From Slimming World But…

Now I’m back!

At the end of January, I was suffering terribly from migraines. I was getting them just about every day and they were taking it out of me. I stopped caring about trying to lose weight. There wasn’t much I did care about, to be honest. I was feeling constantly exhausted and I wasn’t dealing with the pain very well.

My Slimming World consultant totally understood my need for a break. I’m on her social team and decided to still keep doing the weigh-in every week. It was my way of not completely giving up. I knew I’d be back on plan when I was ready.

March 7th – Back On Plan

I went to do the weigh-in today and decided to buy a 12-week countdown. My plan was to get weighed but not be told my result. Wendy, the lovely lady who does the weighing with me, would have kept my book for me so I didn’t know my result.
Sometimes it helps me to not know if I’ve had a bad week but this time I decided I needed to face it and move on.

Big Gain – Food Diaries Will Help

As I said, I’ve not been weighed since the last week in January and during February I was like the Very Hungry Caterpillar, eating everything in sight. The problem was, I wasn’t hungry. I just ate anyway and I didn’t turn into a beautiful butterfly, I just added a stone and a half that has now taken me to the heaviest I’ve been in 4 years.

My total loss with Slimming World was 8 and a half stone and I’ve now put 4 stones back on.
I’m not happy with this and to help me get back on track I’ve brought 4 food diaries home with me. In my mind, I’m now a new member. I’ve counted syns and measured healthy extras just like I did when I first joined.

Not Giving Up

It’s been very tough for me these last few years but I’m never going to give up trying to get to my dream weight.

Back (Again!) On Slimming World With A 9lb Loss

Last year wasn’t a very good year for me in regards to my weight loss journey. I kept going to Slimming World all year which stopped me putting all the weight back on that I’d lost but I am half a stone heavier now than I was at this time last year.
I put 14.5lb on over the 2 weeks at Christmas and New Year so I was very happy to see a 9lb loss this week 🙂

I’ve made a pact with my friend, Wendy, who does the weighing with me at our group, that this is going to be our year. Knowing that we’re counting on each other to do our best every week will help us stay on track.

June Weight Loss Monthly Update

Slimming World Monthly Weigh In Results Update
Update

Well, let’s see how I’ve done at Slimming World this month!

Weight on 31st May – 24 stone 7lb

7th June – 2.5lb loss
14th June – 1lb gain
21st June – 1.5lb gain
28th June – 1lb gain

Weight on 28th June – 24 stone 8lb

 

I haven’t been great this month, as you can see. The gains came from Sunday lunches that included dessert. We had my mother and father in law over for dinner one Sunday then the following Sunday was Father’s Day.
The week after wasn’t down to any one particular day, I had a bad week. I wasn’t on plan and had some weight gain because of it. Totally my fault but I’m back on it.

I’m writing everything down this week and even though we have a BBQ planned for Sunday, I’ve bought low syn sausages for me. I’m going to make my own burgers and I’m going to have salad instead of bread.

I’ve decided to do one post a month with my monthly weight loss results. I found myself saying the same thing over and over every Wednesday. I figured I’d just say it once a month instead!

Well, I didn’t do very well last month, did I?! Oh well, as always I’ll keep on trying. My aim for June is to lose 8lb so I’m back in the 23 stone category again.

Small Gain – Weekly Weigh In Slimming World

Got away with a small gain!

weekly weigh in Slimming World

After all the chocolate I consumed before Easter (we had Easter early!) I wasn’t expecting such a small gain. I was very happy with only gaining half a pound!

I dodged a bullet but to be sure I’m going to be 100% on plan this week. I’ve used the ‘100 Extra Easy Days’ Slimming World book to plan my meals for the week. It gives you 100 breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. You can mix and match if you like but I’ve stuck the menus as they are.

I’m going to keep my syns under 20 and use the majority of them on my meals rather than sweet treats.

I want to lose 4lb next week so I can get down to the next stone bracket.
