    5 4 3 to goal?? 12 stone to loose. 6 weeks in

    Hi All,

    September 11th 2013 proved a milestone in my life - I went to SW and rejoined a shocking 25'5 this is the heaviest I have ever been in my life, I hit 23, 7 when pregnant with both my kids and seem to flaot between 18-23 for most of the last fews years, one year a big exception as I lost all the weight once before.

    I have a touch of intermitant back problems and in September my little one started full time school, I managed to walk him there but had tears rolling donw my face on teh way home as my back was so painful. I suffer from acute anxiety which makes me stay inside at home as much as possible, although I know I have a fun adn loving nature, I have an amazing guy and 2 wonderful kids, I have got it all, and I feel my weight is my "only" curse.

    My boys school is so close, not to be able to walk it comfortably has struck a real chord, my marvellous Mum has stepped into teh breech and loves it, and this takes a huge pressure off me. Well a catch 22, as to join a class I need to get out (very difficult) well after some "positive nagging" mum got em to go with her to a class, we take seperate cars so I know I can leave if I want. Well this was 6 weeks ago, after the official wi, I wish I could say I was shocked, but I wasn;t I have heavy duty 23.5 scales at home and for over 6 weeks they were say FFFF rather than a number so I knew I had exceeded it.

    I had been on some meds for my anxiety since about easter and I feel this is were the last 2 stone went on so quick.

    Well anyways I have always done Red days in the past, and have been very "not interested" in EE, I LOVE rice/pasta and do not enjoy the "standard" veg and I know I ma very sedentary and that pasta really layers on the fat for me, but this time I decided to embrace EE and see if I could prove it wrong!

    Our group is very non judgemental and supportive, we have stayed every week and last week both signed up for the countdown plan to take us into the new year.

    I have had 6 wi including the initial one - the following 5 have seen me loose every week apart from last week where i STS, I do feel it was unfair, and did feel gutted, BUT I have not let it de rail me like it may have done before. I know my path is long, I have decided to mentally break it up into 5, 4, 3.... this will be stone blocks, I think if I can get 5 stone done I will almost be out of the 20's then my next block will be 4 stone, then 3 stone, I am not sure if I will get to 2 and 1 and for now a weight of 13.5 sounds good, I am a short house and I know this weight is still too much BUT I looked alright at this weight in the past and felt curvy not troll like.

    I have decided to do a diary as although the STS did not derail me, it nearly did, and maybe waffling on here will help keep me on track.

    So since 11th September I have lost 20lbs, I am really hoping I will get my 1.5 award this week, 1lb will give it to me, and after STS last week, I would love to drop 3-4 lbs this week.


    Thanks for reading

    PS - does anyone know how I add the slimming world badges to my posts?

    You're doing fabulous! I know how hard it is with anxiety but you've made so much progress, not just with the weight loss, but in other areas that you should be proud of too. I look forward to watching your progress! Good luck

    Hey hun,

    You have done so well in the last few week, 20lbs is amazing and sure you will see a good loss next week.

    I suffer from severe depression and anxiety and am house bond unless my carers/family/friends take me out anxiety can be crippling HUGS. I put on almost 5 stone from last Oct 2012 to July, partly due to a mood stabilizer, partly due to eating the wrong type of food! I tried to come off them unfortunately I cant right now. Just wanted you you are no alone with your anxiety.

    Take care-maybe we can keep each other motivated I am going to do 3-4 red day 1 or 2 green and try EE one day at the weekend! So mixing it up a bit.

    xxxx

    Hello, thanks for taking the time to reply to my thread. After STS last week I was really hoping for a big loss, and my scales at home looked like it was 4 at least, but weighed in at was 2.5lbs, now I am pleased I have lost, BUT that demon on my shoulder that was gagged till last weeks STS was in my ear again, I KNOW I should be really really pleased BUT the whole point of this diary is to be honest, I felt like a failure, well I stayed to group, and by the end of it, felt fine - see how important it is to stay if you can. So on a positive note I have lost 22.5 in 6 weeks which is still over 3.5lbs a week average, and I am VERY happy with the average figure, hoping I can keep it around the threes for at least the next 3 stone or so.

    So my plans this week are Mousakka, chicken curry with lemon rice, and the flavoured slimming world drumsticks all in the latest issue of the mag - have any of you made the chicken curry in a hurry? I have made it a few times now, basically you pop in the frying pan, frylight, your chicken cut up, I pop in some mushrooms, curry powder, cook it up, sometime I pop in a splash or two of water, then just towards the end of the cooking add in 2 coconut muller lights and warm warm through by stirring for about a minute and serve, its very chicken korma like and so very very quick to make - all my family liked it.

    Anxiety is a horrid thing to bear I am very very house bound, I ma off the meds cold turkey, not nice, but my head feels less foggy now, so I am hoping as the weight comes down I will be more confident in going out.

    Well I hope this week is kind for you all, I am taking it one day at a time, mousakka today - jules and hungryveganuk thanks so must for your support

    Hello and welcome, I know just where you are coming from when you do not get the loss you expected (and felt you deserved). I have just posted in my diary how I had a sneaky stand on the scales this morning after a good week so far and seem to have put on not lost... Trying to stay motivated and not let it put me off.

    Aw hun like your postive attitude and you stayed for the whole group and looked at the whole picture ( as my psychologist would say) the fact that over 6 weeks you have lost 22.5-You are heading towards 2 stone loss

    Like the sound of the curry.

    I can sympathies with being housebound, I can only cope going out with hubby, my parents or my 2 carers. Glad coming of your tablets has made your head less foggy, its a horrible feeling isnt it.

    The moussaka sound yummy, pls let us know what it like.

    Hope your day goes ok.

    Hello - well the day ran late so decided to cook the mild chicken curry with lemon basmati rice that was in the magazine instead my daughter is 12 and loves cooking so she helped make it, it really was delish, a tomato based curry rather than an korma type one, very very good.

    I have woken up this morning with a severe case of the munchies and semi destruct mode, which is not good, but I have stayed strong had soem fruit and have just had a lovely and filly mugshot, and that feels like it has hit the spot.

    I am going to prepare the lime drumsticks tonight so they can mariade overnight and we can all tuck into these tomorrow with slimming world chips and the homemade coleslaw, perhpas the mousakka for sunday now.

    Sometimes I wish I had a magic "hibernate button" just to crash out or desert island for 6 months, I know its one day at a time, but sometimes I wish I could hit the fast forward button, I am so impatient, I know I did not gain it overnight so it makes sense I can't loose it overnight, but I feel so fat at nearly 24 stone things seem so far away..........

    I am quite a target orintated person, which is good in some ways, but can be a real bug bear, when you don't get what you aimed for much like this week, but I visual stuff too, so I have had a 70 block pyramid drawn up to signify 5 stone, so I now have 22 blocks to colour in - new colouring pens are on their way and will be here today, so I am hoping this proves a good motivation tool for me.

    Marooncat, hello, remember on SW the scales can really flucuate as we are eating lots, I am a serial weigher, so its kinda daft me saying this, BUT try and pop them away and just use them the day of your weigh in Your body will catch up and I am sure you will loose, will try and have a pop over onto your diary now.

    Jules - thanks again for your positive words - do you think your anxeity stems from your weight or that your weight has nothing to do with it, or does it make it worse? I feel that as huge as I am I really do not want to face the world so it is an added barrier, I do start to feel better in my brain usually a few weeks into a diet though kinda mentally like "I know I am fat BUT at least I am doing something about it " kinda sod the world, BUT I do not seem to be there yet at all, I think when I have dropped a bit more it will trigger that bit, but honestly I think it is more likely when I am in the 20's or under. When I lost all my weight before, I was much more confident out and about BUT the issues were still thre but on a much more manageable level, my anxeity goes to my stomach so I get terrible upset tummy when I am worried and HAVE to get to a loo, so consequently car travel is awful as traffic jams etc means I will be trapped needing the loo and can't get to one, so its an awful vicious circle.

    Anyways better sign off and go and do some work - be back soon

    Hi stilltoowide, you are doing absolutely brilliantly, my God, you've lost nearly two stone in 6 weeks, - that's bloody amazing!!!! I honestly believe it's all about the meal planning and you seem to have that on track! Stick with it, I think you are great and I've no doubt that the more weight you lose, the more your confidence will return and you'll be out and about in no time.

    Hello!
    Im sooo sooo impressed with you and have loved reading your posts so far.
    You like me hope for a loss, then when you get one are frustrated its not as much as you want! Its human nature but cant be helped.
    My consultant says exactly the same as you, the weight didn't go on over night so wont come off over night. She also says the slower you lose it the slower it is to go back on and she should know shes lost 8stone.

    I also have a colouring system! As well as colouring out the blocks I write down the side:
    Week 1: 4 lbs lost
    Week 2: 2
    week 3: 2
    week 4: 2
    month 1 = 10lbs lost
    Then I have:
    month 2 = xlbs lost, total loss (month 1+month 2) =

    This may seem silly but it keeps me feeling motivated so for weeks when you STS or in my case put on I don't chuck myself into a vat of wine/Chinese/cake lol

    You sound like a very good planner! I think its very helpful to be that way which is something I try but regularly fail at! What sort of things do you have for breakfast and lunch- im always on the hunt for new ideas!

    Good luck xx

    Starting again - note to self don't give up on SW it goes on easier than it comes off!

    Hello and thanks for your replies
    HV - I think the pyramid will be a help (but I haven't coloured anything in yet) - more later
    NT - thanks for your support, I hope confidence will return....
    Emma - you have done very well, great seeing the next set of numbers on your scales I bet!

    Well I weigh in tomorrow, but overall this week has been a real struggle, I feel each day has been a real fight, and on some of the days I have had a pack of crisps, and I have eaten probably the equivlant too 3 (pub sized - the smaller packs) of peanuts and after having no bread since starting ( I love bread!) I have probably had 6 slices over the week. I have also made the mousakka and chicken drumsticks as planned, the drumsticks and mousakka were both very tasty, but I didn't liek the coleslaw (not a big vegetable fan) next time I will use onion, tomato and cucumber mix as I like all of those.

    So why such a tough week, honestly I am so disapopinted over the last 2 weeks weigh ins - I have NOT binged which is really good, and have not gone onto total destruct but I have not had as much self control as previous weeks, I am STILL going to get weighed tomorrow even though its half term and I could easily make excuses not to go, BUT i know if I missed this week even if there is a gain, I would deffo have a large gain by next week, and I have brought the countdown, so don't want to miss it really.

    I think I have not had in enough "nice" nibbley bits cooked meats etc, I have had in some lovely fruit nad have eaten fruit a lot this week too, I am hoping the damage is really not too great and that I can trow myself into it next week. I will be back tomorrow to report in, good or bad (sure its gonna be bad) and then re -focus.

    See you tomorrow x

    Excellent!! Well done you that's amazing! Silly question time! How have you set out your pyramid is it in 1lb per block and then a row at the bottom reaching the top of the last lb? I can't picture it! Sorry lol I want to do one but not sure how to set it out. Well done again! Stay positive!
