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.
well I had a really bad result on the scales tonight. I was up 1.5 pounds. I sware, if I continue like this I’m going to scream, the same damn 2 pounds gaining and then losing it for the past 3 or 4 weeks. Ug. Sigh. Its annoying and thats putting it mildly. Anyway. My consultant gave me some tips. Basically she said I’ve reached a plateau, and I basically cant go any further unless I do something to drastically change things, basically in a nutshell I have to now work twice as hard in order to lose the weight. As if I wasnt already working hard enough! She told me that maybe I should try eating more speed, that means a ton more vegetables. So I am going to start having stir frys. I am going to eat stir fry at least 3 or 4 times a week from here on out. I am also going to completely cut out bread. I am going to stop buying breaded chicken and breaded fish and other high fat foods. I wasnt eating a lot of them but I was still eating some. I will have slimming world meals on days where I feel tired or dont want to cook because at least I know the slimming world meals are free from fat. She basically told me to bulk up my plate as well with extra vegetables, so that I get extra speed in, and eat more fruit as that is speed food too. So with that in mind I am hoping I can start losing again. I wont be going next week but the week after I am hoping for at least a 5 pound weight loss. I know if I work super hard I can lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks. I’ll also be exercising so that will also help. I was very disappointed tonight but what can you do, it happens, I cant lose all the time I guess even if I want to.
so I had a pretty horrendous result on the scales tonight. I was up 1.5 pounds. Dont know how! I did everything right this week! I cant think why I am up! But I am! Unfortunately! I keep losing and regaining the same 1.5 pounds over the last 3 weeks! Its so irritating! I just want to get past this and start losing again. That sure would be nice if I did! I will have to take out my slimming world books and go through them. I am also going to go to iceland which is a local store here that stocks the slimming world frozen meals. I am also going to increase my water intake. I’ve been a little lax about it lately. So yeah with all that hoping I will start losing again and next week I will hopefully have a better result on the scales!
Just home from slimming world. I had a successful week this week weight loss wise. I was down half a pound, its not a huge amount, but its better than nothing, and I am going in the right direction, so I am happy. I got a few tips from my consultant to boost my weight loss for next week. Basically she told me to eat more speed foods, that’s fruits and vegetables, and fill up on protein as well. We actually spent the time in group tonight going through our books. We do this every couple of months as a sort of refresher course for all of us. I find it really good to do it. So another half a pound down now, I am nw down a total of 2 stone 3.5 pounds, or 31.5 pounds for my US readers. I have lost that much since febuary of this year. And I feel really great. Life is good. I feel good about myself again.
I cannot believe it. I did it!I won woman of the year last night!
Two of us actually won, both of us got the exact same amount of nominations, so our consultant said she couldnt just pick one of us, so she gave both of us the award.
It was so amazing! We had to wear a tiara and a sash and we got pictures taken! We’re also going to be in the slimming world magazine and on their website.
We got certificates and a bunch of flowers each and a trophy each also. I already framed my certificate and hung it on my wall in my living room.
I’m so so excited! This is just such an honour! So thrilled to have won. It means a lot to me and makes all the hard work of the last couple of months so worth it.
Thanks to everyone for all of your ongoing support of my weight loss journey each week. You’ve all been amazing. I really really appreciate all of the support and love and good vibes and wishes from all of you.
I’m just basquing in the moment right now!
My slimming world consultant just emailed me. Here is what she said!
Hooe you’re excited about our Woman of the Year final in group tomorrow. Here are the questions I will ask you tomorrow. Don’t worry, I won’t ask all of them but have a read and at least you won’t get caught out when I do ask you one of these.
Q 1 how has your life changed since losing weight?
Q 2 how much have you lost and what difference has it made to you?
Q 3 how has the group helped you to succeed?
There you go. See you tomorrow and best of luck.
So now i have to think up answers to these questions! Woohoo! I am so excited! Even if I dont win I am so excited to be nominated and be able to talk about how losing weight has made a huge difference to my life!
So yeah, bring it on! I am ready!
I did it! I am so excited! I did it I lost more weight, yay!
Was down 1.5 pounds tonight. A great result!
Am now down a total of 2 stone 3 pounds, that is 31 pounds for my US readers!
To say I am thrilled is an understatement!
I got slimmer of the week again too this week so that means I got a lovely big basket of food! All syn free or low syn!
And, guess what else? You wont believe this as I cant! But…
I was nominated for woman of the year! Its an award that is given out each year in the slimming world groups! Four of us were nominated for it!
Hope I can win! It would be so awesome if I did! I’m gonna ask my sis to do my hair and make up next week so that I will look nice for the ceremony!
So yes I’d say its been a pretty good week!
