My weight loss, the plan during the coronavirus lockdown

So I heard today that slimming world are organising for their consultants to run their groups via the zoom app, thank goodness I got familiar with it through my therapy sessions. We are going to use it to have conference calls, and there will be a reduced charge for them while we’re in lockdown from the coronavirus. We have to weigh ourselves at home, then text our weight into our consultant, so she can update the system, so that when we do return our weight and history will be there. This seems like a great idea to me. I’ve been struggling to stay accountible and to stay on plan. If this goes ahead it will be easier. We are going to trial it for 2 weeks, so for the first 2 weeks we can go on zoom and do the conference calls for free. This also seems like a good idea, to see if everyone is comfortable with the set up. I know I will be, so I said yes and signed up to it. I’ve told my friend Norma that she’s welcome to come over to my house, and weigh herself on my scales, and do the group chats with me since she’s not computer literate and she wouldnt be able to use zoom herself. She said she’d like to do that. I just need to get back on track. Go back to basics. I’ve started now. I am back on plan again, had wheetabix for breakfast, fruit and a sandwich for lunch, and I’ll be having chicken curry with rice for dinner today. From today onwards I need to be super good, and focused, that will be easy now since most take aways are shut. I dont feel so bad though, since even my consultant is struggling, and she admitted to eating all around her over the past few days. She said she knows when she weighs herself she’ll be up. I’m up a bit, but am hoping to lose it over this coming week, if I can go in next tuesday with a maintain or a loss I’ll be chuffed. Heres hoping…fingers crossed.


Now I feel so guilty ug!

I had a moment of weakness, and I ordered take away food for my lunch. I am not pleased that I caved and gave in to my cravings!
I wish I hadn’t eaten it now! I feel so guilty!
I suppose all I can do now is move on. Start fresh from now. Try to do the next right thing. Try to focus again!
Has anyone got some words of wisdom for me?
Words of encouragement even?
I could so use them! Why is it always so easy to give in!
I really, really need to work harder on saying no to cravings!

Finding it tough to stay on plan!

I’m finding it tough this week to stay on track with my diet! My slimming world group is shut for 3 weeks, but it probably will go on for longer than that.

I have slipped up a little this week! I’ve eaten a few chocolate bars, dark mint kit kats are my new obsession. I’ve also had some peanuts, and some crisps.

I need to pull it back now, get my act together and just stop eating shit!

Its proving really hard to set my mind to it especially when I know I’m not being weighed for a while! I’m trying, though.

For breakfast today I had two wheetabix, mid morning I had some fruit, and For dinner today I had a nice chicken stir fry with noodles. Tomorrow mom is making a chicken curry, we’ll have it with rice and some nan bread.

I’m gonna do everything in my power to stay motivated, and stay on track! I have a ton of fruit I can snack on over the weekend, and this morning I bought a ton more for when I am back home next week.

Anyone got some words of inspiration for me? I need them!

What day is it anyway? Thursday March 19th
Linda has started a series on her blog, what day is it anyway? I thought I’d also join her. Its a good way to keep track of the days now that we’re all self isolating and at home a lot!
Today has been uneventful. I’m a little bored actually. I’ve been at home since Sunday, only went out for 10 minutes on monday to be weighed, and I also went out on tuesday to the grocery store, got everything I needed so that was good. What a relief.
Now my slimming world group is closed for 3 weeks, so no weekly weigh ins. That might go on for longer, our consultant is using our private facebook support page to post motivation, recipes, and other positive stuff to keep us all on track and on plan. So far it is working our well for me yay!
I have the radio on and I am catching up on blog posts. I am loving the quiet time. Its so peaceful.
So what are you up to today? Are you going stir crazy yet? Are you bored?
Tell me in the comments!


Food diary for today, I’m totally on plan!

I’m so happy because I am totally on plan and I have been on plan for the majority of this week!
Breakfast today was two wheetabix with milk, and a mug of tea.
Mid morning I had some fruit, I had some pineapple, two mandarines and a nectarine.
Dinner was a nice juicy steak, some broccoli and a baked potato.
I’ll probably have some more fruit later on this evening for a snack, I might get mom to make me a fruit salad and put some yogurt over it.
Love it when the food is going right for me!
So hopeful this week of a very good result at weigh in!

Dieting update

I’m doing well with staying on plan for slimming world. I am not eating much junk food, I did eat a few pringles last night, but that’s all I’ve had.
We’ll have a weigh and pay in slimming world this week, due to the corona virus. We’ll have no support meeting until further notice. I wasn’t going to go on Tuesday at all, but then I decided I’d better, because if I don’t I will probably go off plan.
I don’t wanna jepordise myself now!
Hoping for a good result this week! I hope I’ve done enough and will be down!

Weigh in tomorrow, Facing the music

So tomorrow I am going back to slimming world after a 3 week break. I am so nervous. I know I am up. There is no denying it. I am definitely after gaining some weight. I kinda did what I wanted for the last couple of weeks, I ate all around me.
Tomorrow I will face my fears, and be weighed, step on the scales and face the music, whatever happens, happens. I’m ready. I can do this. I’ll own it. Take whatever the scale says and then work with it for next week.
I’m sure I’m up at least 3 if not 4 pounds. Oh well. It is what it is. Nothing I can do about it now.
