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.
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
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!
