A well deserved gain and a line drawn


I faced the music on the scales earlier this evening. I was a little worried about going but knew I had to at least face up to what the scales had to say. It’s been a weekend of gluttony, I’ve been a complete pig and I’m not proud. But I am human and sometimes, things just happen and they did.

I’ve overeaten lots this weekend and it showed on the scales. I’ve eaten things that I know will make me put weight on. I’ve eaten 3 Easter Eggs with additional chocolates (Minstrels!), a chocolate bunny, 6 Chicken Nuggets with curry sauce, a McFlurry, a packet of cookies, chicken curry with poppadoms and raita, two chocolate nests, a bowl full of hot cross bun pudding and a slither of chocolate birthday cake. Gosh, what a pig!

The scales showed a whopping gain of 7lb. Ouch!

Today, I’ve been back on plan. I’ve had fruit and weetabix for breakfast. Lunch was chicken salad with pickles followed by fruit and a mullerlight yoghurt. Dinner was peri peri chicken (1 syn) with boiled rice with mushrooms and vegetables. I’ve just exercised some portion control and allowed myself 4 Cadbury Eggs with Daim which are 3 syns each ending my day on 13 syns.

Tuesday food on plan

So I’ve had a set back and I’ve gained weight but it’ll come off. I’m going to have a superb week on plan and lose as much of it as I can! Watch this space….

    Everyone deserves a week off and in a way it’s good that you did it so spectacularly! The way I see it is you may as well get it out of your system in one go than eat the wrong things consistently. It sounds like you’re well and truly back on it this week too! Good luck lovely, you’re still doing great x

    You can easily loose all that again hun, you had a fab few days off plan and you enjoyed it too. Time to remember those days and use it as motivation to stick to plan and it’ll drop off again in no time… I’m expecting a similar result on the scales too. Hoping to get to group tonight or tomoz morning x

    Everyone deserves a week off sweetie, i dread to think how much i gained over the Easter weekend. The temptation of chocolate was too much! You have done so well though and should be super proud of the progress you’ve made! xxx

    Life is for living! We will all have times when life gets in the way but that’s the way it should be. I have every confidence that you will do great next week. Slimming world is all about being a way of life, rather than a quick fix diet, and it’s about drawing that line and getting back to it, but still enjoying yourself lots of love xxx

      Thanks Em, you are so right. I had a binge for 3 days and paid the price on the scales. Tuesday morning I was back on plan and have been since. Bring on the weigh in next week xx

    It’s so unfair that the weight goes on again so quickly, but comes off slowly. The most important thing is to get back on the plan as quickly as possible. This is advice for me too after Easter and a holiday x
