    Slinkymelinkys weight loss diary

    Hello everyone


    After years of playing at dieting, my lovely other half and I joined slimming world together on Monday. Since meeting 4 years ago, we have both put on around about 4 stone each which is mostly due to our love of good food and wine. On a recent holiday, we made a pact to lose weight together. We are approaching the time on our relationship where we might be considering marriage and babies, but both of us feel as though we can't really move forward until we are healthier; a huge motivation!

    I have done slimming world many times in the past. So am familiar with the plan, however I have always fallen off the wagon after a few months, so my losses have been insignificant. Something feels different this time though. With the support (and competition) of my OH, I really feel as though now is the time!

    Iv been a reader of Minis for years and have always found the food diaries so inspirational and have loved following the relationships which develop between the members, so I am going to try (my very very best) to write in is diary every day.

    I'd really appreciate any comments.

    Slinky

    I'm a little concerned that my syns keep running quote high, but I guess il have to wait and see what the scales say on Monday.

    OH is still doing well, he prefers to use less syns, and unlike me, he hates it when syns/healthy extras are included in meals.

    The competition is well and truly on now

    Well I had my first weigh in last night, and lost 1.5lbs. I'm pretty disappointed with that to be honest, especially as my OH lost 9lbs (and I have been in charge of every meal....even sending him off to work with a packed lunch!). I do feel as though iv lost more than that, and there are a few things which I think may have effected weigh in weight. Firstly, I definitely need to get more fibre into my diet as I am feeling very bloated and congested....definitely something to add in this week. I've heard good things about slimmatea helping in that area, so may give that a whirl! Secondly, I worked from home yesterday and ate far more (healthy choices of course) throughout the day than I normally would on weigh day. Including a huge bowl of super free soup, a massive baked potato with left over spag Bol and cheese and salad and a punned of grapes! Sounds glutinous, but I was studying for a professional exam, and the food helped break things up a little bit!

    Anyway.....with all of that in mind, I'm confident that it will be a good week, and I am absolutely delighted for my OH, excellent loss and just what he needs to kick start his eating plan!

    So as yesterday was w/I we did have a takeaway for dinner, but still managed to stay within syns.

    Today; extra easy

    Breakfast; lemon and ginger tea (lemon,ginger,water), half a grapefruit, activia 0%

    Lunch; eating out, will try to order salad or another food optimising choice.

    Snack; hifi, lots of fruit

    Dinner; either homemade fish cakes or chilli con carne....will see how late I get home!

    Determined to have a good week. Would love a -4 to make up for this week!

    I ordered the biggest loser game from amazon for my kinect, so I shall be playing that 5 times a week (fingers crossed).


    It seems pretty good so far, it has a body analyser feature which scans your body and estimates your weight and then works out a fitness regime based on the areas of your body it identifies as needing work. It's quite shocking seeing the scanned image of your body as it really does show every lump and bump.....but may be exactly the reality check needed to bump start fitness.

    In terms of the fitness routine, you have an initial fitness test where the programme identity your fitness level and then all workouts from then in will be to your fitness level. You can also chose how long you want to work out for. The exercises are pretty basic, but I still managed t work up a sweat!

    Today we are off to Cornwall to visit family, so it is going to be quite tricky to food optimise.

    The plan is to have a big breakfast of steak and eggs, take lots of super free fruit and snacks for the journey, and if we have to eat out, make a sensible choice like baked potato with beans etc.
