slimming world….again!

Well I joined Slimming world again! I’ve now lost count how many times ive joined a slimming group weather its slimming world or weight watchers. I join, I have a few good weeks then life gets in the way again.

Well I joined again a couple of weeks ago. I am doing it for me and no one else this time, I’m doing it so that I have the energy to play with C, so I don’t get to tired on placement or damage my feet and legs by carrying so much extra weight.

I am at my heaviest and I know it is because I am happy with my life at the moment.
I’m in a relationship with a man that I love and that loves me ( bumps, rolls and all), he tells me I am perfect as I am and I know to him that I am, that he loves me for me, but I need to love me completely too and to do that I need to actually like what I see in the mirror.
I have a beautiful daughter who is just perfect, she is bright and bubbily and full of energy, my family are amazing and so supportive, and Uni is going well at the moment.

Even though I am so happy, when I look in the mirror I don’t see the person that I imagine in my head, and I avoid mirrors for that reason. When I look in the mirror I see a much bigger person looking back at me, which doesn’t make me as happy.

I joined slimming world at 16 stone 2 pounds, in just 2 weeks I have lost 9 pounds so I am currently at 15st 7lbs.
I am happy and really enjoying the plan ūüėÄ ( not unusual at week 3 thought, fingers crossed I stick to it this time)
I do have my bad days, I enjoy chocolate and don’t like fruit or salad, I struggle to get the 1/3 of a plate of super free food at each meal, so I have to be creative and get extra when I can.

I’ve posting food picture on Instagram, Facebook and twitter if you want to follow me and see my journey. I don’t get to blog often anymore as life is just so busy but I aim to try and do more posts ( not likely but I can dream)

Slimming world #Week2

So 1st weekly weigh in today and managed to just get there in time for weight in as I was in work till 6 nad thats when the later class starts.
This week hasn’t been to bad except for a cinema trip with the usual treats and a night round at my friend on Saturday where we drank. I had forgotten how nice Fanta fruit twist is with Vodka especially Mango flavour vodka, really doesn’t taste alcoholic! Well you have to live a little bit even if you are on a diet.

This week I lose 3.5lbs and my mum lost an amazing 5lbs!

We had some lovely meals this week, Chicken Stirfry, Chilli and wedges as well as steak! We have some more amazing meals planned for this week as well so hopefully the losses will continue.

This week I have 2 big events in one day, My grandparents 60th wedding anniversary party on Saturday daytime and my school friend’s hen do on Saturday night that will include a meal and cocktail making class!
I just hope that one day wont mean a gain next Wednesday.

so here we go…
Week 1 –¬†1st weight in – 14st 11lbs.
Week 2 – lost 3.5lbs – 14st 7.5lbs ( total loss -3.5lbs)

Wish me luck for next week!

Slimming world #Week 1 ( again)

So I have yet again re-joined Slimming world, what with everything that has happened to me and our family recently I have been a little off track and just eaten what ever I felt like.

I know that I need to lose weight and with it slowly creeping up its time to stop it once and for all.

I stepped onto the scales yesterday and I am at my heaviest I have ever been. I plan to lose at least 4 stone and keep it off.

¬†I also ordered a Fitbit yesterday to help motivate me to do more exercise and I’m looking for the best way to track all my food and exercise in one place so I can look back and know where I went wrong and what works best for me.

I’m thinking of adding pages to my already well used K two busy family diary, but need to find the best print off to try 1st or I might design my own.

This is the 1st step on a life long journey and I will hopefully do weekly updates to help keep me motivated, share recipes and my ups and downs with the plan.

so here we go…
Week 1 –¬†1st weight in – 14st 11lbs.

Slimming world – Broccoli pasta bake

On Monday night I made broccoli pasta bake for tea, it is in one of the slimming world mini books that we have.
It was called broccoli mac and cheese, but as we had no macaroni it wouldn’t be right calling it that. So its now going to be known as Broccoli pasta bake.

Here is the recipe I used

slimming world- weight loss update 17/07/2014

Well this week I stayed the same, so still 13 st 3.5lbs with a loss of 1 st 1.5lbs.

I’m not too surprised as I have been working a lot this week, my mum hasn’t been feeling very well so food shopping and meal planning/cooking haven’t been stuck too. We have had a lot of convenience foods and takeaways, and I also went to the wedding, where I ate a 3 course meal and drank alcohol.

All in all I think a sts ( stayed the same) isn’t too bad for the week i’ve had.

People have been telling me that I look thinner and I have actually managed to fit (squeeze) into a size 14 ¬†(:O!!!!) pair of trousers from tesco’s.

For this next week I need to plan, shop and stick to the plan to actually lose some weight.

Spam me with meal and snack ideas!
I am very fussy, don’t like salad (except red pepper) and not a big fruit fan.

Slimming world sweetcorn soup

Last night for tea I decided to make Slimming world sweetcorn soup, I have to be honest and say that I haven’t really stuck to my diet this weekend, what with going to the wedding and being in work. So I thought I’d make a lovely slimming world friendly meal for tea.

I made Slimming world sweetcorn soup and had it with salt and pepper chips.

I love this soup recipe, it is so quick, easy to make and very filling.
here it is :-
