Trying, trying, to be good!

I had a moment of weakness last night and ordered take away food. I was hungry, so I caved and got a chili cheese burger and chili cheese fries. Baaad me! I shouldnt have! I then decided that I wouldnt join my slimming world zoom chat tonight, because I was up of course when I stepped on the scales, I knew I would be. No surprise there. So this morning upon waking, I resolved to be totally on plan today. Which I succeeded at. I have to shift the 2 pounds I gained. I told my slimming world consultant sarah that I’d join the chat next week, I wasnt going to text her on my current weight, but she texted me to ask for it. Omg nooo. She wants to know and I have to tell her I failed, I gained. Ug sigh. But I was honest, I didnt lie. I told her I gained and that I’d be on the chat next week for definite. I went on our private fb group earlier and a few people had written in about their weight that they were up today. So then I didnt feel bad. But come on? I didnt need that take away. I had had dinner. I had fruit and yogurts and other healthy things in my house, I shouldnt have gotten take away food. All I can do now is try for a weight loss next week, hope for the best. I’m pretty sure if I work really hard I can knock the weight off. Fingers crossed.

My weight loss, the plan during the coronavirus lockdown

So I heard today that slimming world are organising for their consultants to run their groups via the zoom app, thank goodness I got familiar with it through my therapy sessions. We are going to use it to have conference calls, and there will be a reduced charge for them while we’re in lockdown from the coronavirus. We have to weigh ourselves at home, then text our weight into our consultant, so she can update the system, so that when we do return our weight and history will be there. This seems like a great idea to me. I’ve been struggling to stay accountible and to stay on plan. If this goes ahead it will be easier. We are going to trial it for 2 weeks, so for the first 2 weeks we can go on zoom and do the conference calls for free. This also seems like a good idea, to see if everyone is comfortable with the set up. I know I will be, so I said yes and signed up to it. I’ve told my friend Norma that she’s welcome to come over to my house, and weigh herself on my scales, and do the group chats with me since she’s not computer literate and she wouldnt be able to use zoom herself. She said she’d like to do that. I just need to get back on track. Go back to basics. I’ve started now. I am back on plan again, had wheetabix for breakfast, fruit and a sandwich for lunch, and I’ll be having chicken curry with rice for dinner today. From today onwards I need to be super good, and focused, that will be easy now since most take aways are shut. I dont feel so bad though, since even my consultant is struggling, and she admitted to eating all around her over the past few days. She said she knows when she weighs herself she’ll be up. I’m up a bit, but am hoping to lose it over this coming week, if I can go in next tuesday with a maintain or a loss I’ll be chuffed. Heres hoping…fingers crossed.


Massive success at weigh in!

I am just home from being weighed in! I had a fantastic result when I stepped on the scales! I was down 4 pounds! I couldnt believe it! It just goes to show doing all the right things and being on plan pays off. I am thrilled. I am determined to continue my sttreak of good luck. I am determined to have another great week, I am not actually sure if we’ll have a weigh in next week, but I am determined to go on as if we will. It has really boosted my confidence to have this fab result. I am delighted. I am on air…on cloud 9. I came out of there beaming from ear to ear. Its exercise, lots of water and fruit and veg for me this coming week. am determined to keep this up, I know I cant lose 4 pounds every week, but even 1 or 2 would be good next week.

Tracking food and activity!

I’ve been good today about keeping track of my syns, I spell it syns because thats how it is spelled in slimming world, I am allowed 15 syns per day, and today I did not go over the allotted amount yay!

I’ve also been keeping track of what I am drinking today! I’ve drank a lot of tea, coffee and coke and not so much water! That needs to change for the rest of the coming week!

I didnt exercise at all today, I am sooo baaad!

Tomorrow I will aim to do some, and track my activity also! Which reminds me if I am going to do that I’d better charge up my apple watch!

Its fun to track water intake, exercise and what I am eating, but I can become a little obsessive about it so I have to be careful that that doesnt happen!

Facing my fears payed off

I did it guys! I smashed it on the scales today!

I was down half a pound when I got weighed! Its better than being up. I’ll take half a pound.

I’m going to really throw myself into it this coming week, and I hope to lose at least 2 pounds next week!

But for today half a pound it is! And thats fantastic considering I was out of town this past weekend!

I’m so glad I went this morning to be weighed, I was half thinking about not going.

A win on the scales, yay!

Not getting weighed in

I’ve decided I’m not going to go be weighed in tonight. I am still feeling headachy and I’m a little bit stressed so I dont want to go. I just feel like hybernating here at home so that is what I’ll do.

I would have probably been down at weigh in, but you just can never tell how it will go. I havent done a lot of exercise at all lately. I want to try harder at that. So for next week my goal is to exercise every day even if only for a little while. I need to be more motivated about exercising.

I will just book this week off and go next week and hope for a great result next week instead.
