    Slimming World Veteran, Discovering a New Way of Life with 5:2 ♥

    Good morning Mini's, I'm back! For those who know me and follow me, I've taken a short break from the forum recently.

    I've been struggling with my weight since May, when I reached my 4st award. Since then I've been up and down (mostly up!) and struggling to stick to plan for whatever reason. I don't want to go into it too much as I don't want to bring all of those negative feelings back up - I am ready to draw a line now. Hence ANOTHER new diary.

    Anyway, I go on holiday in 10 days time and, although I am nowhere near what I wanted to be, I want to be "on plan" until then and get rid of as much of this bloat as possible.

    I'm currently just following SW from home and I'm not weighing myself at all. At the moment, just actually sticking to plan is the most important thing!

    I managed my first full day back on plan yesterday, so lets hope I can keep it up...


    Extra Easy

    (S) = Speed (SS) = SuperSpeed

    Breakfast:

    - None! I had a lie-in with it being Bank Holiday, and by the time I fancied something to eat it was lunch time.

    Lunch:
    - Can of M&S "Count on Us" Red Thai Chicken Curry (2.5 Syns) served with Long Grain Rice and Vegetables (Carrots (S), Broccoli (S) and Sweetcorn)

    Dinner:
    - 2 x McCain's Frozen Jacket Potatoes (2 Syns) topped with Chilli (EL Beef Mince, Carrot (S), Celery (S), Peppers (S), Red Onion, (S) Mushrooms (S), Red Kidney Beans (S) and Chopped Tomatoes (S)) and Cheese (HExA)

    Other:
    - 2 x Rocky Road HiFi Light (HExB)
    - 25g bag of Butterkist Toffee Popcorn (5.5 Syns)
    - Special K Milk Chocolate Chewy Delight (4.5 Syns)

    Healthy Extra A: 40g Reduced Fat Cheddar
    Healthy Extra B: 2 x HiFi Light

    Daily Syns: 14.5 / 15
    Weekly Syns:
    14.5 / 105

    Thanks lovely ladies, good to see I have not totally bored everyone with my on-off SW relationship.

    I'm currently planning the rest of the week as I feel more in control and likely to stick to a plan if I have it written down. The only danger zone I can see this week is that we're going to the cinema on Friday night. We've been meant to see "The Inbetweeners 2" for a couple of weeks now, but both times we've had to postpone. Anyway, it's payday Friday and Warren is off work so we're going then. Nando's is right next door so we'll be going for tea first, which is fine and will be totally on plan, but it's the cinema snacks I'll have to prepare for! That's where it all went wrong a few weeks back. But I've managed it before, so I can manage it again!!

    Definitely not bored hun. I'm in a very similar position - I don't seem to be able to keep my head in the game for more than a week! You are a massive inspiration because you never give up - you're totally amazing xx

    Thank you both! I know it's hard to believe at times with the way I mess around and sabotage myself, but I want this more than anything. No matter how hard things get or how "wrong" I've gone, I'll never be able to give up. I won't let myself.

    Trying to totally forget the past and what I've already done. Not beat myself up about the last few months. And just try to become positive and motivated like I once was.

    I know it's a bit daft when I have my holiday in 10 days, and that isn't going to be totally on plan (although I will try my very best to make sensible choices when I can), but the longer I put it off the worse it's going to get. I think not getting on the scales is also helping, as I think I'd have a meltdown if I saw the actual number!

    One thing I am anxious about is whether or not my holiday clothes will even fit me by this point. Think I'll brave trying them on tonight, as I may need to go out and buy new stuff before we go away. That's so bad!

    Would you try upping your superspeed? It might not make much difference on the scales, but if you're any way bloated it will help. Melon and pineapple, with drinking extra water, can work wonders.

    I am trying to eat plenty of SuperFree which is the best thing you can eat, and will encorporate as many speed / superspeed foods in as possible! Could also do with upping my water too if I'm honest - great tips.

    Right, I'm off to fill up my beaker with some water as we speak! x

    Nice to see you back Stevie. I was thinking of taking a diet break and just eat small! Good luck and am right here with you.
