This weekend I attended my Saturday morning Slimming World class for the second time. It’s so much easier than the Tuesday nights were and I really appreciate being able to go with a friend now!
I was confident that the scales were going to show a loss this week – I’d really got back on track after our weekend away and the gain from last weekend. We’ve been eating lots of jacket potatoes and fritata again – roll on pay day for a bit more variation! I’d stuck pretty well within my syns. There may have been a cakey treat in the Trafford Centre on Thursday night but it was planned (and more importantly enjoyed!) I’m finding it quite easy to stick to plan at the moment – the thrill of another loss on the scales is far stronger than the need to stuff my face with treats right now . . . I just hope I can keep this focus going!
At class this week we talked about the fact that it’s 15 weeks till the official start of summer – which at 2lb a week would be 2 stone 2lb down . . . how amazing would that be to have lost 3 stone by the summer. YES PLEASE!
I must admit I didn’t feel quite as nervous stepping on the scales this week, I think maybe I’m getting used to it again!
So although I’d set myself a target of a 3lb loss last week I’m thrilled with a 2.5lb loss. I’m “back in credit” so to speak and that first stone is in sight. With a really good week this week I might even see it by Saturday . . . we shall see! I’m starting to feel a difference now – not so much in my clothes, it’s not like anything is falling off me but I can see it in photographs. My face is looking a bit slimmer, my tummy a bit flatter. I regret not having taken any measurements before I started so that’s something I need to do this week!
I’ve got nothing going on this week – no events or evening’s out planned – I can stick to plan 100%. (I might have had a bit of a treat day on Saturday with lunch out and a chippy tea but we’ll gloss over that).
This week I’m concentrating on trying to get more “super free food” on my plate – for those of you not familiar with Slimming World this basically means MORE FRUIT AND VEG!
Fingers crossed come the weekend I’ll have a shiny new sticker on my book!
