Here we go again….
Another weigh loss journey, I tried to lose weight before Christmas but I completely flaked and failed within a week. This time however, I’m fully committed and actually enjoying it so far. I’ve tried several diets over the last few years and although I’ve lost plenty of times, sadly I’ve never kept it off. I know I need to change my lifestyle rather than just restricting calories, so I decided to try Slimming World.
I love that with Slimming World I don’t feel like I’m starving. It’s all about making good choices. Instead of having half a plate of chips, I have half a plate of salad, the volume fills you up and I have definitely been feeling satisfied after dinner.
I’ve never been a salad person however this week I’ve choose to have them everyday. I love them! With just a little effort they aren’t boring! Adding a boiled egg, some ham and using a couple of syns on light dressing really makes a difference.
Last night Ben was working out of town, and the light bulb blew in the kitchen. Instead of sticking the kids in the car to head over to B&Q, I ordered takeaway. It was a long day, and I needed something quick. HOWEVER I ordered a jacket potato with salad actually not breaking my diet at all. I must admit it was the strongest will power I’ve ever had! It was hard watching the boys eat garlic bread. (My favourite!) BUT I did it and I’m really pleased with myself.
So I stepped on the scales and in my first week I’ve lost 4 pounds! It feels great because I don’t feel like I’ve dieted!
Weight loss this week = 4
TOTAL LOST = 4.
