Izzyhew's dizzy start to diet......
Hi, I am Izzy, scottish Mum of 2 hooligans and hopefully ready to find my slimmer self <again >
So as with many of us, I have gained and lost so much over the years, its getting ridiculous, I am 37 years old, and my baby is now 7 months it's time to do something!
A few years ago, when trying to get pregnant I managed to lose 2 stone, I was 14 st 4 at my highest, and got down to 12 st 4, finally got pregnant (woohoo) Once my son was born and I weighed myself a few weeks after I was 13 st 7, and have managed to get down to 13st 1.5 - in 6 months lol so progress has been far too slow. I am pleased though that I have never reached my previous all time high weight even with my pregnancy.
I started slimming world on the spur of the moment just over a week ago and haven't lost anything, but I wasn't remotely organised, and started using the diary a few days in and was still having too many sins, I am organised now though and have the full week to be properly committed and hopefully have something to report next week.
I have a friend and 2 cousins who have done well so I am inspired by them.
I also have polycystic ovaries and insulin resistance which I am on medication for, which makes me feel ill frequently so I really hope I can lose this weight and ditch my meds.
Going to sort out a ticker, and will start it with my highest weight from a couple years ago because I feel that although this is a new start dietwise, I don't want to forget that I have already achieved some, and keeping it off is in itself an achievement too.
That's about it for now, I will try to check in frequently with updates, looking forward to reading some of your stories.
Morning Izzy, welcome to Minimins!
Well done on your weight loss so far and also on not putting it all back on when you were pregnant, that's great!
When is your next weigh in?
Good luck, I'll be popping in to see how you're doing!
Thanks for the welcome
weigh in day is wednesday, so I have the whole week to achieve it, I have been completely on the wagon since around Monday, so hopeful I will lose a little at least!
I had a good day food wise until my best friend turned up with fudge whoops lol. So I have had a few extra syns today, but I was under my allowance yesterday so it should balance out ok I hope.
I also did my first session of couch to 5k on my treadmill followed by a walk outside
I was very strong this morning and gave the rest of the fudge to my daughter wooooohoooo
no extra syns for me today

Re: Izzyhew's dizzy start to diet......
Hiya, I'm a Scottish mum of 3, I just started yesterday! So fingers crossed next Thursday I will have something nice to report! Good luck to you, look forward to seeing how you do
<waves to the fellow Scot>
I'm a couple hours further north than you I think Good luck for Thursday I'm sure we can both do this!
So far so good for me today, now that the fudge has been redistributed, I have had a banana and wholemeal toast (Hex) for breakfast, a few raisins there too so I added 1/2 syn, 2 cups of tea with dashes of milk so another syn for that, and a yummy 2 egg ommlete made with 30g cheddar (Hex) bacon and tomatoes, it was so yummy I am wondering why I have wasted so much time.
I have also done my week one/session two of couch to 5k..... and will be out a walkie soon!
I am excited I really feel like I can do this
I thought I posted a reply but it's gone missing grrrr
I think I am a couple hours north of you Tigerlily I'm sure we can both do this!
Today has been good so far since the disposal of the fudge lol. I have had wholemeal toast with banana and raisins for breakfast ( 1xHex and 0.5 syn) plus 2 cups tea (1 syn) and lunch was a yummy 2 egg omlette with bacon, tomatoes and cheese (1xHex). So far so good.
I have also done my second week one session of couch to 5k, and plan to be out a walkie soon.
Hi Izzy, welcome to Minimins. Well done on resisting the rest of the fudge, I'm not sure I would have!
I've also thought of trying the c25k but "haven't got round to it" yet! Or that's what I keep telling myself at least!
Are you going to a class or just doing it yourself? I loook forward to following your progress x
I wasn't sure if you meant a class for the eating or the jogging, but the answer to both is the same - no class!
I joined slimming world online, and the Couch 2 5k I have an app on my kindle fire
I would like to go to a slimming world class but the nearest one is a car drive away and I don't like to take my car out unless I need to, currently on maternity leave and being careful with the pennies, in addition I would likely have to take my little one and probably wouldn't end up being able to stay for the full class. I might reconsider though if I struggle to get anywhere with my losses. I think there is plenty of support here and on the sw web site, in addition my husband is also supportive as is my friend with the fudge - I hadn't told her I started but now she knows she won't bring sweeties next visit lol.
The jogging I am doing in secret! Only my best friend (and you guys ) know. I have tried and failed at it before, my husband runs as part of his training and I don't aspire to reach his level as he is superfit but I would like to surprise him by just telling him one day that I have managed to jog 5k!
So far so good still today, I have had an apple and a pear as well, and planning sticky chicken for tea loving the sw site recipes.
Yeah some of the SW recipes are great aren't they. I go to a class but to be honest it's not great, you're not missing much!
Good for you with the running. I can totally see why you have chosen not to tell anyone. Only a few of my family members know I'm even doing SW. None of my friends know, they just think I'm eating a bit healthier, which I suppose I am. I found it much easier that way, less pressure maybe.
Yeah sometimes it's nice to just keep things close, few people know about me doing slimming world as well I don't want the pressure or lots of people asking when I might have had a bad week and just don't want to speak about it lol. At least with this you can still eat out and blend in, it's not obvious to the outside world.
Oh and the sticky chicken was good, my 8 yr old also loved it
It's great that the recipes are so family friendly so you don't have to cook separate meals.for everyone x
Other half also gave the seal of approval to the sticky chicken so it could become a household regular lol, I ended up having all 15 syns yesterday due to go-ahead crispy apple slices, they were yum
My daughter had a drum practice last night, and by the time we walked there and back and I walked around a bit to keep my son calm in the buggy, plus my walks/jog earlier I clocked up over 5 miles yesterday.
So starts another day here and I have a sneaky mid week weigh and looking like 1.5 down yay, I don't mind if I lose any more this week to be honest I know this needs to be a long term trip for me, and if slowly gets me there that's fine.
Todays plans for us are to chill for a bit, and clear out the understairs cupboard (there is something I need to locate lol so may as well make it count) Hubby has work later and I want to try and fit in my 3rd session of counch to 5k. I will have to wait until the kids are in bed so I am not sure if I will have the energy, but I must try because I will be restricted now, next week I can only do it on wednesday, friday and saturday so if I skip today it seems too big a gap! I don't want to undo any good this is doing me.
Have a nice weekend everybody x
