Here is my food log for Friday! I had a great day food wise today! I was really healthy! Heres what I ate today!

Breakfast was a yogurt, and some strawberries, and a cup of coffee. Not exciting, but healthy!

Lunch was some crackers, rice crackers, salt and vinegar flavour, rice crackers are sooo yummy! I am addicted to them now that I’ve tasted them, I also had some fruit!

Dinner was two chicken breasts, with some salad, rice and bean salad, and some wholemeal bread, and I seasoned my chicken with hot sauce!

It was super yummilicious!
I was starving by the time dinner time came, so I wolfed it down!

And two more mugs of tea!
So I think I did ok today! I’m delighted with how I’ve done!


Update on weight related matters

So I went to my new slimming world group tonight! It was great! As I said in a previous post, my consultant is away, so we had a fill in one tonight. She was lovely!

When I got there the taxi driver brought me in, and he went in to ask someone to come out and assist me, which they did. They werent opened yet, but as soon as they found out I was there, they brought me in to the room where the weigh in and meetins would be held.

I decided that I’d restart my membership, so basically, I am starting over, as if I have never been before. I wanted to do that, since its a new group, start fresh, you know? So they said that would be fine, and I got weighed in.

I now weigh 14 stone 12 pounds! For my US readers, I weigh 208 pounds! I know I am starting over, but when I first joined slimming world over a year ago, I weighed 231 pounds, or 16 stone 7 pounds. So anyway, now I am starting at a weight of 14 stone 12, 208 pounds. And I will go from there.

I am very happy with that weight. I am right on plan now. I set my target at 9 stone, thats 126 pounds, so thats the weight I’d like to be at when I get to target. I know its going to take a while to get there, but I have time! I dont mind waiting! I will go slow so that I will get there!

So this is my very first week now! I came home, ate dinner, and then I went on the treadmill for 30 minutes. So I got my exercise in for the day! I feel great!

So thats the update! Thanks for all of the supportive comments and good wishes. I will keep you all posted as to how I do as the weeks go on!
I got this! I can do it!


The time has come!

so the time has come! off to a new slimming world group, weigh in, and a new group, can I handle it? I hope so!
I am doubting I will have lost any weight, but we shall see!
wish me luck guys!


About weight and my weight loss

I’ve decided I am going to continue to go to slimming world, and continue with my weight loss. I had chosen not to go, but then I had a change of heart. I dont want to gain back all of the weight I’ve lost over the last 18 months. I had lost a total of 2 stone 7 pounds, thats too much hard work to throw it all away. So I am going to go back but I am going to go to a different group, so that it is less of a cost to me, the group I was going to was very far away, and I was spending a lot of money to get there. The group I am choosing to go to now is nearer and it will cost me far less to get to it.
I rang the consultant this morning, and I am waiting on a call back from her so that I can have a chat to her about joining her group and also tell her that I am blind.
I want to try to go next week, I just need to figure out days and times.
I think this is definitely the right decision for me. When I decided not to go last week, I started eating what I wanted, and I’ve gained a few pounds now, so I need to lose that now again.
Its so easy to gain, but so hard to lose it.
I’m determined though. I am starting back on plan today, no more chocolate, crisps or junk foods, I am going to get back on track starting from today.


I made a decision!

I’ve come to a decision! I am not going to continue to go to slimming world. It costs me too much money each week, I am just not able to sustain spending 50 euro a week between taxi’s and the fee to get weighed, the taxi’s alone cost me 35 euro there and back! I am just not able to keep that level of spending up so I made a decision to stop!
I will still keep tabs on my weight though. I am also still going to eat healthily, and drink plenty of water, exercise, and I will definitely still be mindful of what I shove in my face!
I feel overjoyed that I’ve made this decision!
Its like a huge weights been lifted from me!
I think I’m doing the right thing!

This post is in response to fowc with fandango! Todays word for fowc was overjoyed!


Food diary for Tuesday!

Today I have been on plan all day! I am amazed! Its been so easy to stay on plan! I am so surprised at how easy it has been! I am delighted of course too!

Breakfast today was wheetabix and a some fruit. Of course I had my usual coffee also.

Lunch was a turkey sandwich, a yogurt, and some fruit, with a can of coke zero!

Dinner was a chicken breast, boiled rice, peas, and carrots.

Snacks today were a whole lot of fruit! I also went to the grocery store to stock up on fruit for the week! All the fruit was a euro! So I got loads! I got apples, peaches, mandarines, kiwi’s, grapes, strawberries, and a melon, which wasnt a euro but I love melon so I didnt mind spending extra on it!

I also got myself more water! Which reminds me, today I had 3 litres of water!

So thats how my day looked today! Tomorrow its weigh in day! Hopeful of having a loss, fingers crossed!
