Hi everyone :-)
This is my second time doing Slimming World, the first time I think I only lasted a week! I just couldn't keep it up as I was eating everything around me. I spent a long time gearing myself up for loosing weight in 2014 and I booked a sun holiday last night for June so I can't put it off any longer!
A bit about me- I'm from Ireland and I work as a support worker. I lost weight a couple of years ago and reached 10.7 stone. I maintained this for a while and was really happy and looked so much better. When I finished college I started piling on weight again and now I am (depressingly) back to the highest weight I was before of just over 12 stone.
My aims are to get back to around 10 stone for my holiday in June. I'm going away for a week in Feb also so that's my short term goal! I'm a week on Slimming World so far and have lost a few pounds already. Some days I find it really hard to stick to as I love a lot of foods that are high in syns. At the moment I am using my syns weekly. I know some people say you shouldn't do this but it seems to work better for me so I'm going to continue to do it until I think it's affecting my losses!
This week I'm going to aim to start exercising a lot more as I'm dying to speed up my losses and start working my way back down. Trying not to think about the fact I'm in the exact same place I was a couple of years ago...
I'm going to post my food from my first week so any feedback would be really really really appreciated!
