A great week on plan | Slimming World Update

After my first Slimming World weigh in of the year being not as successful as I had hoped (you can read about it here) I came away from group feeling really determined. I knew exactly what I needed to do to get back on plan and was eager to get the week underway and make the week count.

The first thing I did was plan and prepare for the week ahead; we made a meal plan and stocked the fridge along with some saviours including fruit, synfree snacks (crustless quiche and chicken drumsticks) and yoghurts. I decided to take it one day at a time and deal with the day in hand. Making wise choices and making sure I drank plenty of water. I’ve been using a new notebook as my food diary and I deliberately chose one of the notebooks I’d been saving (I save all the best stationery for super VIP stuff) as I figured I wouldn’t want to waste it; I’ve been filling it in every day and so far so good!

Just writing up this weeks weigh in update for the blog • loving writing my food diary too!

I’ve also been sharing my meals over on Instagram and it’s really helped me focus. I’ve posted every meal including what I’ve used my syns on (mainly Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons) and the SW Instagram community is so supportive. Huge thanks to everyone who has followed me on there, I’m @MrsShilts_SW if you want to see what I’m eating.

I’ve also been speaking to the lovely ladies I met at the Slimming World HQ bloggers Christmas lunch. They’re an amazing bunch of ladies and they are hugely inspiring. I’ve been able to get to know more about them and their weightloss journey’s and I am so inspired by them. I really want to get to a lot of weight off this year and I think I can do it!

Last week was a good week on plan and I lost 7lb!

I’ve been asked what I ate so I thought I’d show you my food diary in the form of photographs from my Instagram pics.

It’s been a good week and I know I lose so much because of my poor diet over Christmas and New Year, I doubt I’d lose the same amount if I ate the same foods as above in a second week. However, all the meals above are all Slimming World friendly and great to eat on the Extra Easy plan. I’m feeling very motivated to have another good week so let’s do this!

    I really need to look into SW more, some of the meals look so delicious but I find it so hard to find the time to prepare and cook healthy things! But I really do need to do something about my weight, it’s got a but out of hand!

    Wow Emma, that’s amazing, 7lbs in a week??? Woah! Well done. You’re a real inspiration, I’m determined to kick myself into action and lose some weight myself. It’s great to see what you’ve been eating too, good to know that you can eat proper meals and still lose weight.

I'd love to hear from you
