    Back on the bandwaggon.... 3rd time Lucky :)

    This isn't my 1st attempt at slimming world. In Oct 2012 I weighed 203lbs (14St2lbs), I started my slimming world journey and did really well, I lost over 2st and got to 11st 11lbs, my relationship broke down and I moved house, I moved away from my group and fell off the wagon. In 11 months a little bit of weight started to creep back on but I wasn't too naughty. I decided to rejoin a new group and was 12st4lbs (172lbs) when I braved the scales again, I got down to 11st6lb (160lbs) in 5 weeks but I really didn't like my new group or the way my new consultant ran the group, so again I fell of the wagon.

    This time I'm doing it from home, my mums joining in so were going to work at it together, I'm doing 100% EE days, lots of exercise and I start a new more mobile job on Monday too so I this time i'm not quitting.

    I will be sharing my Food, Recipes, and ups or downs, general exercise and of course my weekly weigh-in.

    Weigh-in night will be between 6-8pm on a Wednesday.

    Final target is 135lbs (9st 9lbs)
    Target date - Spring/Summer 2015 (Summer bodies are earned in Winter)

    Start Weight - 172lbs

    Day 1

    So I just had my breakfast, and I have to admit I had no superfree, I really struggle to get this in on my breakfast, but last time I did Slimming World I would only have SF on about 4/7 breakfast a week and it never caused me an issue. I have it religiously on every other meal

    Breakfast - 2X Small Wholemeal Toast (HXB), 2 Poached Eggs, 1 Coffee with a splash of milk and sweetener, 2 glasses of water.

    Thinking I may go to the gym or for a jog later

    Hi Sarah

    Thanks, I'm really looking forward to starting now its back in the sector I want to work in long-term so I was really happy when they told me I had the job.

    I've not been on Minimins in about 8 months but I'm glad to be back I love the recipe ideas and support on here.

    We have both done slimming world a few times but never at the same time so it will be good, lots of meals together, we have already had a few arguments about syn values and HX's so the books have been out haha So far it Amy 2 Mum 0 so my memory is doing me proud

    Good look with your weight loss too x

    Starting again!!

    Hopefully by the time you weigh any bloat will of mostly gone. I'm sure it will be fine. I have pcos and I don't get regular periods (only about 6 or 7 a year at most whike this big. They increase when I lose weight)
    But when they come its like someone blew my belly up with water for a week. I usually gain 4-7 lbs personally but then it all goes and more next weigh. But as your weighing close to the end you should be fine.

    Hopefully *Fingers crossed*

    I don't bloat a huge amount but I can still always tell on the scales. I not exactly regular either, Ive been told my numerous people to ask my Dr to be tested for PCOS because I have a lot of the symptoms. Just never got round to it. :/
