My first Slimming World Week


Ok , so I joined Slimming World last Thursday and started following the Extra Easy Plan and it is what it says, so easy! I have eaten everything I wanted to and not felt deprived of anything as I used my syns for my mayo,Revels,Bacardi,french fries etc. I loved the look of my trolley last Friday, full of fresh fruit and veg and also a few little treats. I have for the first time in ages eaten big meals and had snacks and not felt even a twinge of guilt. I sat and watched TV last night with my bag of Revels and did not have to eat them quickly on my own and hide the packet in the bin as I am supposed to be on a diet. slimming World is a totally new eating plan for life , not just a quick fix diet. My meals were big and filling and I was never hungry, there are so many free and super free foods that you never ever have to feel hungry.

This morning I went to weigh in and even though I did feel a little bloated due to the fact that I had not drunk enough water(something I am working on) I was very pleased , I lost 4lb! I have set myslef a goal of 3lb for next week as then I will get my 7lb award in 2 weeks. I love the class I attend they are a nice bunch and my Consultant Dawn is great.

I have just had 2 poached eggs on brown toast and we are having a chinese tonight, mine will be beef and mushroom with rice ( love the chunky onions and mushrooms in this dish ) all for 5 syns, the rice is a free food. I am looking forward to it.  We are out on Saturday as we have a charity function to go to and it will be a buffet, I will have a bowl of soup before we go and then pick a few items from the buffet as I am using my syns for the Bacardi!

If you saw my food diary this week you would be amazed at all the food I have eaten, a Sunday roast, bacon butties,shepherds pie,chicken stuffed with garlic and herb cream cheese, wrapped in bacon,hand made chips….yes chips,bowls full of fresh fruit ,chocolate and yet I have still lost weight. It is taking a look at how you cook the food more than what you eat, obviously if I has stuffed my face with cream cakes and pork pies it would be a different story. So I have given myself a pat on the back and am now planning next weeks meals.
