So, after my gain of 2lbs last week (due to changing from morning to evening sessions) I have had a great week. I have established that my weight can vary 3lbs from morning to evening in one day. I had a good week with a couple of meals that were slightly off plan, and I lost 4.5lbs!
My total weightloss is now -12.5lbs in 5 weeks. I am so super happy about this and I feel very motivated after also receiving the ‘Slimmer of the Month’ certificate! Admittedly it is only a small group, but I’ll take what I can get!! I am hoping next week for at least -1.5lbs so that I reach my first stone! I am going to take my measurements next week and see if I have lost any inches in 6 weeks.
Recipes I tried this week included Chinese style pulled pork, another KFC fakeaway version and Crab cakes. The pulled pork was a great hit with my husband, but it didn’t quite do it for me. The KFC was too hard and not too great and the crab cakes were a total fail. I am taking away experience from this though, at least I tried! I know they aren’t great, so I will move on and try something else!
I am still not bored of apples and have still been having 4 a day, and my jacket potato for lunch is still a daily thing. I haven’t got bored of them, and I am hoping that I don’t! Its the chocolate and crisps that I miss! I haven’t had Coca – Cola cravings which is a massive step, I could esily drink 6 cans a day, which I think was the cause of my headaches in week 2. Sugar withdrawl is a real thing, and I believe I was addicted to Coke.
I feel so motivated to do this. I am planning my days and nights around my food and thinking ahead, making it easier to stay on plan. Even the couple of times I deviated off plan last week I still made relatively good choices. Slimming world is a lifestyle change; not a diet.
I visited the gym 4 times last week, but have only been once this week *whoops* I am hoping to find the motivation to go today, I have plenty of time I am just being a bit lazy with it
