New Year - New Start!
Happy new year!
My new years resolution is to take control of this weight issue and lose the weight so I can be healthier and look better!
I previously had success with Slimming World - losing 4 stone back in 2010. Unfortunately 12 months ago my work hours changed and I could no longer make my Thursday night group. :(
I tried a couple of other groups but neither really felt right and I just struggled to get my head in the game. I have put some weight back on and have really noticed over christmas that I am just not comfortable again so it gave me the motivation to start again.
I am not going to a group as can't really find a local one at a convienient time - plus we are hopefully moving house in 2013 so may be able to find one closer when we have moved!
So........I weighed in this morning.....14st4. Depressing as I was 2st lighter this time last year but on the bright side not as heavy as my starting weight in Oct 2009!
I will weigh at home every Wednesday morning and report back on here!
Please feel free to join me, say hello or give any pointers!
Good luck to everyone in 2013
Today's food is already planned out so hopefully will keep me on track!
Breakfast - 2 Weetabix (HEA and B) - Topped with pineapple, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries!
Snack - Banana, Clementine
Lunch - WW beef hotpot with broccoli and green beans (4.5 syns). Activia 0% yoghurt, Apple
Snack - Handful of Grapes. M&S Chocolate Biscuit (6 syns-eek!!)
Dinner - Beef Stir Fry with noodles with Soy Sauce and 2tbsp HP BBQ Sauce (2 Syns)
Total Syns 12.5
So far so good!
Also I am cutting out alcohol completely - it worked back in 2010 so will give it another shot!
(Exceptions are birthday and valentines- hehe!)
Doing ok so far............not even been tempted by the chocs that are still about at work. Keep tucking into my fruit instead!
Must keep this up!
Just wanted to wish you luck, if it's come off before I'm sure it can again. It's been 5 years since I was at my goal weight but I really feel like I can get there again this time. I'm resisting some rather yummy looking homemade sausage rolls in the 'usual place' at work. I'm really exited to be back on the slimming world wagon (a bit sad I know)and feel comfortably full rather than stuffed as I have been recently.
Thanks for the message Emma! Good luck with your journey too. You are totally right - if we've done it once we can do it again!
I'm going back to my slimming world group 2mo night. Really looking forward to going back after letting the pounds creep back on since getting married 18months ago!
Good luck to you all!
It feels good to be taking control again doesn't it! Hope group goes ok tomorrow night and good luck with your journey! Let me know how you are getting on!
It does feel good :) thank you, u 2 x

I had already had 12.5 syns so didn't want to go over 15 on my first day!
Todays food looks like this;
Breakfast - Magic Porridge (Porridge Oats (HEB), activia yoghurt and frozen berries mixed together and left overnight!), topped with a bit of fresh pineapple
Snacks - Banana
Lunch - Beef Stir Fry with Noodles (2 Syns for sauce) - Leftovers from last night tea!
Snacks - Berries and Grapes.
Dinner - SW Chilli with Rice packed with loads of extra veg! Cheese (HEA) and a side salad with balsamic vinegar. Lush!
Syns - 2 choc strawberries (3 syns) and a few pringles (7 syns)
12 syns again today but again no cake! Result!
Hi, can I join in? I am on day 3 of SW. Doing it at home, live in France. They do WW classes here but they are twice the price they are in England and can't justify it really. WI day is Tuesday and I am going to lose the lard this year. I am!
Course you can join dibbles!
How are you getting on so far?
Going ok, really. Am focused and determined to do it. Going to get back into exercise next week when my son is back at school. Wii fit 30 day challenge and going to return to Jillian Michaels too. Well done on your loss Amy, how long did it take you? Was determined to do red days but carb craving so just going with it so extra easy for me!
Just looked and that was before and your start weight is that one, more or less the same as me. It's the language thing *pretends to forget English for inability to read properly!*lol
Haha! Its ok. I lost 4 stone in just over a year in 2009/10 then had about a year of staying the same but then had to stop going to group and I took that to mean I could relax! So here I am - put some weight back on but ready to shift it again!
