Trying out slimming world meals

So yesterday I went to iceland, which is a local store here, they have the slimming world range of meals, and I bought a few of them to try out.
I got beef madras, beef lasagna, an indinisian rice dish, and mac and greens.
I tried the indinisian dish today.
It was lovely. Its rice with chicken pieces, and vegetables, in a fragrant sauce.
It takes 12 minutes to microwave the slimming world meals. You put the meal on for 6 minutes, and then you stir it, and return it to the microwave for another 6 minutes.
I do have to say I did like the meal I tried today. I wouldnt eat these all of the time, but they are handy in an emergency or if you didnt want to cook something on a particular day.
I’d definitely buy them again!


I am not brave enough to go

I decided I wont go to slimming world this week. I just know I am going to be up, and I don’t want to deal with that. I’d rather not go. I’d rather wait until next week, work on losing the little I have gained, and then go in with a loss next week.

I think that’s wise. I am just not brave enough to deal with gaining the weight. I cant take that disappointment. I don’t want to step on the scales and for them to tell me you’ve gained. I know I’ve been eating badly, I don’t need to have someone else tell me that.

So I’ll give it a skip this week. I texted my PA to tell her, and I texted my slimming world consultant to book the night off.

It means tomorrow I don’t have anything on. I can just relax. Which is what I need as I am totally wiped out.

Great result at tonights weigh in!

So I am on air! I had a fantastic result at weigh in tonight!

I was down 1.5 pounds! I am thrilled! I really wasnt sure I would be down! So it was a lovely surprise when I was!

I did have a good week though. I ate tons of fruit this past week. I have also been drinking tons of water. It was just so nice to step on that scales and have a good result. Especially after last weeks gain. I gained 1.5 pounds last week, and I lost that tonight.

I am now down a total of 2 stone 5.5 pounds since I started! For my US readers its 33.5 pounds! I am just thrilled to bits with my progress. If I can get a 1.5 pound weight loss next week I’ll be back to my original weight loss of 2 and a half stone. Thats what I had lost at christmas time. I hope I can do it!

I’m going to read my book tonight I think. My slimming world book. See if I can pick up any more tips from it! There might be something in there that I’ve missed!

I hope I’ll have another great week! Either way I am on air right now!


Weigh in time!

Its time for my weekly weigh in! I am nervous! I hope I’ve done enough and I hope I’ve lost something! Any amout will do! I just want to start losing again! I’ve been trying so hard! So we shall see! Wish me luck guys!


Weigh in!

Its time to go get weighed in! I am thinking I am not going to be down this week. Its just a feeling. I didnt do anything really bad, but I dunno its just a hunch I have.

We shall see though. I’m not going to worry too much about it. Whatever happens will happen.

I’ll hope for the best. Fingers and toes crossed.


A small loss

So I had a little loss tonight when I went to be weighed in. I was down half a pound. Not much, but at least its something.

Sometimes, at least for me, it takes two weeks to show on the scales, and after I had the gain last week, a gain of 2 pounds, it looks like its going to take the two weeks to turn it around again.

But I’m happy with it, at least I had a little loss. Half a pound is better than gaining, or maintaining.

I’m now down a total of 2 stone 5.5 pounds, or for my US readers, its 33.5 pounds. And that feels really good. Its such an accomplishment for me.

Heres to a great week ahead! My plan is to make lots of healthy dishes, and drink lots of water, and get some exercise in also and hopefully next week I’ll have a fabulous weight loss result when I step on that scales!


Didnt do so good at weigh in

Well I didnt have a good result tonight at weigh in. I was up 2 pounds. Oh well. Its disappointing, but I just have to take it on the chin and get right back into it for next week. I think the sub I had for lunch today didnt do me any good. There were a few other little things this week that I ate which werent the best or on my plan. So its all systems go again now for next weeks weigh in. I came home, drank a 500 ML bottle of water, ate some fruit, and did 15 minutes on the treadmill. My plan is to go on the treadmill at least 2 times a day for 15 minutes at a time. If I cant go on it because I am not at home, my plan is to go for a walk with my mom, so that I am still exercising. I cant let this little gain get to me too much. It happens, and it has happened to me a lot that I’ve been up at weigh in. Its just one week, next week will be better, I firmly believe that.
