    Another restart diary

    Hello!
    I've just reintroduced myself in the newbies section.
    To cut a long story short, I stopped smoking in October and have put on a massive amount of weight.
    In 2000, I lost 5 stones on slimming world, so this increase feels dreadful.
    Alongside the increase in dress size, I feel depressed and low.
    So, new start! Can't wait for that lovey clean feeling :-).
    Going to a new group on Thursday.

    I will be doing a mix of red, green and extra easy, depending on meals! I'm also doing dryathalon, which will hopefully help my mood and weight loss!

    Breakfast.
    Frozen forest fruits and 0%fat Greek yog.

    Lunch
    2 quorn sausages, salad leaves and slimming world coleslaw (3 syns for sausages and extra light mayo)

    Tea
    Pizza topped chicken and sw wedges

    A. Milk and cheese
    B. jacket wedges

    Wish me luck!

    Hello, I'm restarting again, I started in June last year but I've just had so much happen I've properly put on most of the weight I loss back on and I'm starting again on the 8th of January. I'm looking for more friends on here to help support me on my diary and on theres to keep my motivation up. Fancy it? xx

    Wayne Dyer

    11/04/14 - Weighed myself and was in shock by the number... the number isn't a huge deal but I feel bigger, my coats tight, I'm slowly fitting into the oversized work trousers I have which isn't a good sign as I'm obviously too big for the other ones I have now, including the shirt which looks stretched around the bust area. I'm struggling with sleeping, or sleeping too much, out of breath at running up the stairs and my double chin is reappearing. My chest seems bigger which means my bras are hurting or breaking. I feel insecure about the way I look at work and don't like catching myself in the mirrors or window reflections.

    I've been at group since June. I'm currently within my 12week countdown, last week or something. I'll buy another one when it's up as I find it much nicer when I don't have to budget each week to fit the 5 payment in. You?! x

    Joining a new group on Thursday and will buy a 12 week countdown too. Agree that it's much easier that way and I feel even more committed if that makes sense?!
    No idea what this group is like, but it's really important to get the right one. The last one I went to was really cliquey which didn't help!
    Is your group any good?

    There is a set group, usually those who run it, they disappeared so I showed an interest and began weighing people in and became part of the set people, then the other 3 came back and well I was out of the set people, it could be a small reason ehy I stopped staying tbh. I made my own click tho, 3 of us, you'll just attach to peoole slowly, speak often, use your speaking time to ssk for advice, mention things youve found and the group remembers you better.

    Apart from the above, my groups good, its my second and my first was very bad... I got no support at all. :/ ive only ever lost a st to a st and a half on sw.

    Do you have much choice around yours?

    Today we're off to Norfolk to stay with family and celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary. My dad, brother and nan will all be there. Staying until Thursday with lots of activities planned including paintball long and skiing.
    Fun but dangerous!!!

    I'll be aiming to stay close to plan and then straight to group on Thursday night.

    As we're staying in a very remote location, I will be absent for a few days :-)

    Plan for today.
    Breakfast: porridge oats and frozen summer fury with Greek yog.

    Lunch: omelette with salad

    Tea: out of my control!!!

    Looks like a red day to be on the safe side! Although could change to ee if I have an omelette without cheese and drink green or peppermint tea.

    Have fun! And Happy New Year :-). X

    Back to work tomorrow so posting my food diary now.
    Rejoining group tomorrow as I desperately need some help and motivation. Will be buying a 12 week countdown.

    Anyway, less of the negative and more positive!

    Breakfast: defrosted berries
    Lunch: carrot and ginger soup
    Tea: omelette before group at 7.30pm

    Suspect that I may have closer to 3 stones to lose. I have scales at home, but the batteries have run out. I'm not going to replace them and just rely on group weighing. Never been this brave before :-).

    Will report in after group, at least things can only improve!!!

    Hi Rosie!!
    Think we've all got the back to work blues. I for one stayed in my pyjamas til about 3pm. Had a shower and washed my hair and then got in another pair of pyjamas!
    What a waste of the day!
    Did you get some more batch cooking done? I've made enough speed soup to last a lifetime. It's nice knowing its there when you need it though.
    How was your trip away?
    I expect you already know this, but unless going for a pee is annoying you because you've been so often, you're not drinking enough!

    Whenever I freezer cook, I never feel like eating it again so it gets left in the freezer for months lol.

    oh yes! The frequent trips to the toilet are one of the things that I actually look forward too - weird!
    Trip away was amazing. Lovely family time.

    Well back at work, could be worse! I like the fact that you stayed in pjs for a whole day!

    yes, did a fair amount of cooking. Like you PandaNate, I find that the freezer can become a black whole, but I'm determined to not waste food this year :-).
    Just enjoying my carrot and ginger soup as I'm typing this - lovely and warming.

    Hope that you're all having a lovely day. x
