My Slimming World journey
I am hoping sharing my journey will keep me on track…
So! I am finally doing it. I am the kind of person who complains I’m fat but does absolutely nothing about it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not hung up too much about my weight. I believe if you’re happy then that’s all that matters in life but because I do a lot of TV work I HATE watching myself back. I am always quite surprised at how big I am/look.
I also have a heart problem and nerve problems in my foot, they aren’t weight related but I’m sure my weight won’t be helping so not only am I doing this for how I look and feel, I’m doing it for my health too.
I posted on my Facebook page last week asking your opinion on diets. Is Slimming World or Weight Watchers better? I didn’t want to use any ‘quick fix’ pills or drinks because I have worked in pharmacy for a number of years and know that they don’t really work or once you’re done you pile all the weight back on. I needed something that educated me.
The majority of you said Slimming World was the way to go and sent me LOADS of inspiring before & after photos of your own journey. I didn’t have time to reply to every comment but I did read them all so a huge thank you, you guys have done and are doing so well. The change in some of your photos was amazing!
So tonight I start Slimming World – 27th July 2016.
I am really excited to get started but a little nervous for the first meeting.
I think if I share my journey with you it will keep me on track and help me lose those extra pounds each week as I know I’ll be sharing my weight loss.
I would love us all to keep in-touch and share how well we are doing so please feel free to comment.
So until next week…
START WEIGHT (yikes) – 17 stone 7lb
So I have been doing Slimming World for 7 days now.
I think some of the meals I have tried so far have been a bit hit and miss as I don’t like a wide variety of salad or veg so I’m trying to mix as much in with my food as possible. I’m doing good with fruit though – all my biscuits and crisps have been swapped for apples, bananas or grapes.
The banana and custard muller lights that you’re allowed to eat are absolutely amazing and I have found some really delicious meals that don’t feel like ‘diet food’.
I did have a bit of a wobble during my first week. I was finding it extremely difficult because the family didn’t want to eat what I was eating (such fussy eaters) so I would be making a meal for the husband and kids then doing my own. It was so time consuming so after such a busy day on Wednesday I ordered a Dominos for us. Very naughty but I was feeling so fed up and couldn’t be bothered to spend an hour cooking different meals.
Anyway, I had my first weigh in last night…
I lost 2 1/2 lb – I am pleased I lost but I can’t help feeling a little disappointed thinking I may have lost more if I hadn’t demolished a Dominos through the week. Anyway, it’s definitely a start and I’m heading in the right direction.
Until next week…
