SLIMMING WORLD WEEK 1 - FOOD AND WEIGH IN



If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I’ve previously lost 3st doing Slimming World. Although I’d not been attending groups, I’ve been loosely following it for the past couple of years and maintained the weight I had lost. I’ve tried to eat healthy, get in to fitness and try and lose weight without the aid of SW and to be honest, I wasn’t getting very far (apart from fitness, I was doing pretty well there). By restricting myself of certain foods I found I craved them more, and more often than not, gave in. I noticed the weight start to creep back on and I wasn’t happy, my big clothes were starting to feel slightly snug again and I thought all my previous hard work would be wasted. Slimming World worked fanatically for me before, I really enjoyed doing it and so last week I joined a group just down the road from me to start my journey again and finally get to my target weight I set myself years ago.

Last night I had my first weigh in and I’ve lost 3lbs which I’m really happy with. On Monday I had my LLETZ treatment via general anesthetic and as you can imagine I’ve not really been with it this week. Although I’m feeling a million times better now, it has been a funny few days. But I tried to stick to plan as much as I could and thankfully I had James cooking me meals (with instruction) and apart from a naughty cream cake (pain purposes obviously) and the lack of movement being stuck to the sofa for 3 days, 3lbs is a good loss.

So on to the food. My breakfast during the week tends to be fruit with yogurt, totally syn free and at the weekend toast with marmite, eggs and/or bacon (without the fat). I love bread, but I find it makes me really bloated so I try to limit it to just the weekends instead. I also had my pancakes this week too as I was at home. Lunches are usually salad with salmon or chicken or soup and with dinners I  try to have something different each night, this week my meals have included  homemade burgers with sweet potato fries, fish pie with greens, chicken, sweet potato and spinach curry and a jacket potato with cheese and beans. For snacks I’ve been having boiled eggs, carrot sticks and for sweet treats I’ve been having dairy milk (21g bar) which is 6syns.

Favourite meal last week? Homemade burger! I had the BIGGEST craving for this and it certainly hit it!
Learnt anything new? I had no idea Quark was free!
Aims for this week? Include more speed foods in my meals and drink more water
Any new dishes to try? Bacon and mushroom crustless quiche.
Wanting to lose? I’d like to go for 3 again and I don’t have any distractions so I’m hopeful!

Total loss: 3lbs

  3. Well done lovely! I joined SW a few weeks ago and so far I've lost 5.5lbs but I've had to miss 2 weigh ins already! I am obsessed with Toffee Muller Lights, I snack on them when I'm craving something more than fruit. I'm on crutches and had a cast on for a week so once again I've missed weigh in but hopefully I'll be back on track next week as I've been really really off track this week (takeaways and McDonalds were my weakness!!).

    Good luck for this coming week love!

  5. As you say, it's really hard to stop eating some specific food because once you start telling yourself not to eat it, that's when you really want to have it. The best thing is to eat less of it, not cut it completely! Your meals look so yummy and healthy though, you're doing it right :)
