Really was determined to step it right up this half term. Not always easy with a 3 year old in tow but thankfully he’s obsessed with his scooter at the mo! Body magic had slipped right off for me lately which I do not love! This week has been the kick start I needed to MAKE the time. It’s right up there on my priority list again now - next up is a weeks trial at Nuffield gym next week 😬out of comfort zone completely!! Xx #swuk#bodymagic#getoutandwalk#stepcity#slimmingworld#nsv
After a long day, I knew I wouldn’t want to start cooking when I got home so it’s a treat night tonight (still on plan of course, I’m not THAT risqué 🙈) and we are having an Asda takeaway... I’m taking advantage of flexi syns and have worked out that by making good choices, I will need at most an extra 20 syns today so I can enjoy my feast and still have my Saturday wine too 😍
I will serve with SW chips and maybe rice (depending on how many chips I can get on the baking tray - there’s 3 of us tonight after all)
Using flexi syns won’t guarantee me a weight loss next week on the scales BUT it will keep me in control and stop me feeling guilty and falling into the “well I’ve blown it now I may as well have...” trap.
Plus, by keeping a count of the syns, I’ve already made a better choice after looking up the syns of the garlic naan that I picked up. 25 syns for just one??? Think I’ll leave those for the boys 😳
Asda vegetable balti, 400g pack = 9.5 syns
Asda hot onion bhaji’s = 3.5 syns each **************************************
If you’ve not tried this @aldiuk delight then you need to! I was looking forward to more food & gin in town with @alwright9o tonight but seen as he’s a poorly bear I will have to have a solo party at home! Whilst he sips Lucozade orange & tops up on Paracetamol my pizzas in the oven & this delicious delight is ready to grace my tongue..😏👌🏻
Still a long way to go, but I took the picture on the right on 6th Jan!! I am so hard on myself, thinking it’s only 15lb I’ve lost and I don’t know where from as I still feel huge!! I don’t take many pictures of myself and it was hard enough convincing myself to take that picture so I can see progress as I go along, I am so glad I did!! I can now see it is not ONLY 15lb and that it has made a huge difference already even though I still have a long way to go, I know losing 2lb on average a week is sustainable and I won’t pile it all back on!! #summerbodiesmadeinwinter#summerbodyinprogress#slimmingworld#bodymagic#weightlossjourney
Recently had a HUGE influx of followers (thank you and welcome!) and just wanted to show my first week loss.
Yes you've read correctly, I lost -0.5 pound on my first week. I wanted to show this to people who aren't big losers or have big losses and to say you aren't alone! It took me a month to get my half stone award. It's took me 61 weeks to get my 10 stone award.
As I was over 25 stone, I was allowed upto 25 syns a day and I tried this for the first week. My body clearly didn't like those extra syns! So I limited myself to 20 for the next week and still found it was too much. Third week I tried 15 and simply stuck to 15 as a maximum from that time! I get asked if I use 15 syns daily and my answer is that it varies. I don't treat 15 syns as a challenge, I just have what I want. Most days I finish under 10 and I'm happy with that! It's all about control, I try to fill up on fruits and veggies (especially mushrooms and butternutsquash😍) and then eat my protein, then carbs.
I'm trying to post more about me and my reasons why for weight loss. I'll do another post tomorrow 😇
AND I AM BACK AGAIN! Honestly it’s hard to be honest with your journey when you have a little blip. I’ve done it many of times and I don’t want to be embarrassed to be share them with you all. I do find it hard forever being on plan, I do have times where I just need to focus on other things in life and enjoy things in life to that don’t necessary fall into the rules of slimming world. But that is life and I am only human! I always reign it back in and I’m never away for too long because I just refuse to go back to being the girl on the left.
I’ve been honest in saying I’ve been poorly for quite some time now that it has affected my mind and my determination and I’ve just not felt happy at all due to it all. I’m still on a battle with my illnesses and problems but I need to be strong now and not let them take over my life. I feel so much better when I am eating well and exercising that I need to keep going and push through the dark times so I can have more happy times.
I lost 7 stone and I’ve always been so proud of that, yes I’ve had gains, I’ve working on getting my Christmas gain off now still but that is part of the process - for me. I was a size 22 weighed 17 and half stone and didn’t move. I got to a size 10 weighed 10 stone 5lbs and was amazingly active. I’m not far off it but I want to take baby steps to get back to that point but more than anything to enjoy to process and the journey of it all! I want to fall back in love with exercise and I want to fall back in love with a healthy lifestyle. If I didn’t follow slimming world I know for sure my old ways would have crept back in years ago and I’d be back where I started but I do honestly find having the slimming world plan to follow a a life saver!
