I was welcomed into my lovely group and haven't looked back since and in 8 weeks I am 1st 3lbs lighter as a result!
Last week saw a 2.5lb loss and this motivated me to stay on track again this week. I meal planned all my food so I knew what I was eating. I think with slimming world this really helps me stay on track and stops me picking at the fridge. I realised this week just how far I have come, when I get bored I eat, and this hasn't changed...... but I now find myself eating fruit and nibbing on carrots! For someone who always headed for the breadbin that in itself is massive!
Whats even more exciting for me is I am starting to notice the changes myself, my face is a little thinner and my double chin is getting smaller! I am also 2 sizes smaller in tops and 1 size smaller in bottoms, I am actually now the lightest I have ever been in about 4 years, at 19 stone though I still have a long way to go. But with this plan I really feel like I can do it, for this first time in a long time I feel positive about how I feel and where I want to be. I don't have an ideal weight and I haven't set a goal as such. I just want to be able to walk onto a normal high street store and pick something up and know they have it in my size and to have to go to the plus size section. Not that there is anything wrong with the plus size section, I have been shopping there for much of the last 10 years but as I get older and the inevitable health issue may start occurring its time to change.
I headed to this weeks weigh in and have been on plan all week so knew I was definitely going to get a loss, I tend to keep my syns as low as possible. I had some lovely birthday cake this week and even had a crunchie and packet of crisps on treat night. I was really pleased with this weeks 2.5lb loss as it keeps me on track for my mini goal.
My mini goal is to lose 2lbs each week between now and Christmas, this will mean if I do it that I will be 3 stone lighter by Christmas!
Last Weeks Goal was to lose 2 lbs
