15 weeks down.. a SW update


15 weeks ago I made a pledge to myself to get my weight under control. I was miserable in my own skin and I hated the way I looked in the mirror. 15 weeks ago, I walked into my local Slimming World group and little did I know that I was about to make the best decision ever! 15 weeks on, there are small changes happening.

Last night I went to weigh in to see that I had lost 1lb taking my weightloss to a total of 33.5lb (2 stone 5.5lb) in 15 weeks. If you saw my instagram pic last night, I was disappointed. I was a bit disappointed to only lose 1lb after a great week on plan but having slept on it, I woke up this morning with a renewed motivation to get another great week under my belt attempt that 3 stone loss for Christmas.

Losing 1lb per week , for a whole year is 52lb = that’s 3 stone 8lb = awesome! 

To my surprise, I won Slimmer of the Week again last night. I didn’t expect it at all but was happy to accept it and the bowl of yummy fruit that accompanied it.

Slimmer of the week

This week I’m trying to stay on plan as much as I can. I’ve got a couple of events on Friday which I’m not sure how I’ll manage as they involve other people managing the catering but I know what I can have and what I can’t and if there’s nothing that I can have on SW, there’s always syns!

I’m drinking at least 2 litres of water per day at work. I’m filling up my water bottles first thing and making sure I sink them throughout the day. I’m a bit rubbish at drinking water at home so will need to get into a habit of making myself a bottle of water up when I get home to drink during the course of the evening.

There’s 5 weigh-in’s left before Christmas Day and I really want to enjoy this Christmas being 3 stone lighter. It would be a fantastic Christmas present to myself so I’ve still got the (mini)goal in sight and I’ll do everything I can to get there.

If you’re weighing in this week, have a good one!

    I’m weighing in tomorrow. Hopefully have lost that stubborn pounds or so to get me to my two stone award – I guess we will see! I then have about 10/11lbs to go to target. It adds up around 2lbs a week at each weigh in then I could be there by Christmas!

    You’re doing so well – your success has been a major motivation for me to get back on the wagon and go back to meetings! I was aiming for 1lb a week for seven weeks in the lead-up to Xmas because that’s when I rejoined WW meetings, but as I’m already at 6.5lb I’m now aiming for a 10lb loss before Christmas. I know we can both do it :)

      Thanks Lauren, well done for getting back at it. I remember how well you did and I want that success story. Good luck this week xx

    Emma I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record now but I am just so proud of you and amazed at your determination and commitment to this. You are a star and deserve every bit of your success. I was chatting to my mum about you yesterday and how much you’ve lost doing SW, and how you are so good even bringing along lunch to places like McD’s and Ikea! You should be really proud of yourself xxxx

      Aww thank you Lauren, I’m ‘in the zone’ now and don’t really want to let anything get in my way. I have got so much more to lose I’m determined to get rid of it, I want to be slimmer and feel better in my skin.. small steps xx

    I'd love to hear from you
