It’s been 21 days since I stepped on the scales in class, followed the plan pretty much to the letter and so far I’ve really enjoyed it. I keep calling syns points, which of course is from the old plan I used to follow but I’m sure it’ll all fall into place soon enough.
For breakfast I’ve been enjoying either fruit, yogurt and All Bran or fruit, two weetabix and a splash of milk. For lunch, I’ve been eating superfree salads with chicken or ham with a splash of fat free dressing. My favourite is Morrison’s NUME Lemon and Herb dressing which is really tasty and makes a salad a bit more interesting. If I’m at home I’ve been able to have a baked potato with baked beans or an omelette packed with mushrooms, peppers and onions. Depending on what I’ve had for breakfast I can have low fat cheese instead of milk for my Healthy Extra A to add to the omelette which is really yummy. For dinner, we’ve been trying to cook meals that the whole family can enjoy so we’ve had meals such as chicken, savoury rice and vegetables or pasta. I would like to make a few more meals from one of the recipe books but I’ve not had chance yet to look through the book and find out meals that I think Little Mr and hubby would enjoy too.
All my meals are photographed in the form of a food diary which you can see over on Instagram, here. I’m taking photographs because my memory is terrible. I like to look back at them and remember what I ate, what we enjoyed and how they helped towards the weightloss for that week.
I stepped on the scales this evening and saw a loss of 2lb. I’m pleased I’ve lost weight again this week because hand on heart I’ve been really good and written everything down. I’ve not cheated myself and I’m really proud of that. In three weeks, I’ve lost 11lb on the Slimming World plan and i’m rather chuffed with that.
My focus is that I really want to lose weight so I can be a healthier Mama for Little Mr. I want to be able to give him a little brother or sister so that he grows up with a sibling like both my husband and I did. Not only that, I want to wear smaller, fashionable clothes and I want to like my reflection in the mirror. I hope as I lose the weight, my health improves and if we’re lucky enough, we would absolutely love to have another baby. This is my focus and I’m going to try my hardest to get to where I want to be, no matter how long it takes me.
