Weigh In #22


The less said about this week's weigh in the better.

As I wrote in my previous post, I've been really struggling to stay on plan and not eat everything in sight. So there you have it... a 1.5 pound GAIN. Only my second gain since starting Slimming World (and the first was only a 0.5 gain on star week) and I'm absolutely fuming with myself about it.

I debated with myself all day yesterday about whether to go to weigh in or not. I knew I'd put on and didn't want to see it on the scales. I convinced myself to go though and I'm so glad I did. Group was great and it's really given me the kick up the bum I needed to stop cheating! Instead of going home and cracking open a bottle of wine/pint of ice cream/box of chocolates, I headed straight to Sainsburys after the meeting and spent a small fortune on healthy, syn free food.

I think I need to realise that the things I could get away with at 16 stone are not going to wash now I'm in the 12 stone range. I've been lucky in the past that my naughtiness hasn't shown on the scales. I guess it's finally caught up with me!

I'm 100% back on plan as of now and intend to stay here for the foreseeable future! I want target before Christmas. I wanted to be there before my birthday but I think that's unlikely now.

Starting Weight: 227 pounds
Current Weight: 181.5 pounds
Weight Loss Gain This Week: 1.5 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 45.5 pounds
Target Weight: 140 pounds

 41.5 pounds to go!

you're still doing miles better than i could ever hope to lol. i didn't go to mine today purely because after the eccles cake festival i knew i would've put on and after last weeks melt down i thought it best to not ruin my birthday, which is tomorrow!

I have a takeout (14 syns) in sight for my dinner tomorrow, a bottle of wine, I'm not sure what that is because it's not something i usually have, and possibly a muffin. the rest of the week will be 100% even Saturday which is my trip to Chester zoo, i'm taking my own lunch plus I'm going with my counselor so i have to be good!

I normally don't go to weigh in if I know I'm going to put on but this time I made myself. And I'm so glad I did.

Wine isn't great unfortunately. I think there's about 32 syns in a bottle. Hope you have a fab birthday xx

Hi I just wanted to say I have read your blog, you have done so well to get as far as you have. You did the right thing going to group even though you know you had a bad week. The key is to keep going. Sounds like you have got the right attitude this week, go for it! Have a perfect week, write everything down and you will lose that 1.5 and then some.
