Another week on plan with Slimming World and I was delighted to see a loss of 2.5lb on the scales taking me down to the next stone bracket and a total loss of 26lb in 10 weeks. I’m feeling rather positive about my weightloss and I’m starting to see small differences now; my face doesn’t feel as chubby and my neck feels less fat. Ridiculous things to say really considering how much weight I still have to lose but it’s all about baby steps. However, the plan seems to be suiting me and to my delight, I also got awarded Slimmer of the Week with a fellow member! Wonder if I can get Slimmer of the Month for October? Might have set myself a little challenge there!
NSV (non scale victory) MOMENT
This week I’ve managed to fit into a pair of new work trousers in a lower size which I am delighted about. I’ve bought a couple of tops for work in a smaller size as I’m desperate to feel better and more confident in my work clothes. Annoyingly, I have a wardrobe full of clothes that I could wear but they’re too small. I will get back into them.
Yesterday I spent the day at an employment law conference in Birmingham. I knew we would be given lunch but obviously didn’t know what delights it would be so planned ahead and decided to take my own lunch with me. I also took my own breakfast as I didn’t have time before leaving home and knew that if I didn’t take something SW friendly, I’d dip into a shop and get something totally inappropriate. How glad was I that I sat eating my yoghurt and fruit when the smell of bacon baps came wafting through the door and breakfast was served. Oh the smell was absolutely divine but I knew that I couldn’t take my eye off the prize for two minutes of eating a delicious bacon sarnie as I would have spent the rest of the week regretting it. I’m totally polishing my halo to kick start the week!
I want my two stone loss award next week so need to lose 2lb this week. I’m hoping to drink lots of water (2-3 litres per day) eat less than 10 syns per day and make sure that over a third of my plate has superfree foods on it. Looking forward to the week ahead!
