Food log april 17th

Hi guys
Well my food log for April 17th was not that great. I mean I did it, I logged what I ate. But to be honest, that wasnt that much.
I never really eat much on my weigh in day. But I did try to eat some small things.
Breakfast consisted of some fruit.
Mid morning, I ate some more fruit.
Lunch was some toast with some spreadable cheese on it.
When I came back from my dr. barry apt I ate a bowl of wheetabix.
I was going to cook dinner last night when I got home from slimming world, but then tiredness overtook me, and I didnt feel up to cooking.
So I just ate some hard boiled eggs and some toast.
Drinks yesterday consisted of a couple mugs of tea, coffee, and 3 500 ml bottles of water.
So that was my day in a nutshell. Not the best one, but oh well. It is what it is.

First day down, I think I made very wise food choices. I hope I can continue this trend.


I was down!

I had a great result tonight at slimming world! I was down 1 pound! I actually thought I’d be down more, but I am still happy with a pound. My consultant said that I might see it next week, she said sometimes our bodies take two weeks to adjust, so the extra weight that I was hoping to lose this week might actually come off next week instead.
Still its a good result! My weight is going down, which I am so thrilled about!
I am now down 2 stone 2 pounds, or for my US readers, its 30 pounds in total since I started a year ago!
So I am going in the right direction!
I am very happy with the progress I’ve made so far!
Heres to another fantastic week this week! Fingers crossed!


Winning at weight loss!

I went to slimming world tonight. I had a pretty good week, so I was hopeful I’d be down. And I was! I was down 1.5 pounds tonight. I was happy with that result. I am going in the right direction, I am back on track. Thats all I wanted is to be back losing weight again. I now weigh 14 stone 4 pounds, or 200 pounds for my US readers. I still have another 4.5 pounds to lose that I gained over christmas, but overall I am doing ok. I am happy. I can do this. I will lose that extra bit of weight. As long as I’m headed in the right direction, thats really great. I am very pleased. I downloaded the slimming world app on to my phone, as I hadnt ever used it before. I am going to track some things on it, use the tools that are available to me, I might as well, since my membership gives me a lot of access to tools, recipes, a BMI calculator etc. Might as well make use of them. Next week my goal is to lose 3 pounds. I hope I can do it. I’m feeling like I can. I’m feeling pretty positive about it.


Weight loss progress updates email group

I am sending this to you to let you know I created a new email list to tell my friends about my weight loss progress, send updates, to everyone at once.
I was hoping you might like to join it. It would be an announcement only list, meaning there would be very little email, one or two updates a week max.
You could reply to my messages, but the replies to them will only go to me, and not the entire group.
If you’d like to recieve updates, send a blank email to


A disappointing weight loss result

so I had a disappointing week this week in slimming world.

I weighed in but was up 2 pounds. I dont know how I was up! I did everything right.

My consultant said it could be hormones. This is the week when I’d usually have gotten my periods, that is, if I was still getting them. I still get all the symptoms though each month.

I cant see what else it could be. I was so sure I was going to be down this week. I am so disappointed.

I’ve decided to cut out all bread. And I have also decided to only drink one cup of tea a day, and drink a ton more water, see if that helps. Hopefully it will.

I’m determined to have a better result next week. So we’ll see I guess. Heres hoping I will.
