    My Ever So Slow Journey ..

    So... I thought I would give this a bash, not really caring if anyone reads but I just need a place to vent every now and again.

    I joined slimming world In June 2013 with a target of 5 Stone to lose, I was kind of at the end of my wit with my size and how my body was making me feel, I wanted my partner to find me more attractive (he was adamant that he did but I just wanted that reassurance for myself).

    At the time and for two months after joining we were renting an apartment and had a holding fee on a house to be built when we decided to buy. My slimming world was going great and within the two months I lost a stone, I thought I had done quite well and in August we decided to move in with my OH parents, this was only going to be for a two/three months as the developer on our house was due to start building and would have it up in no time, So we could save some money for furniture and the likes.

    Now - the development went bust and we had to find another house, we did and we got it sale agreed and loved it, november comes around still no house, something do do with the deeds or legal mumbo jumbo, solicitor is on the ball everything is all go, everyone promising it before christmas, its now heading to mid february and still no house, still waiting on whatever needs changed to be changed. AHHHH.

    Ever since August I have only managed to get to a stone and a half, going pound on, pound off, holiday gain, on-off, on-off, christmas gain, same on-off as before.

    I know I could do better I we were living on our own, sharing a small kitchen with another two adults and two dogs is frustrating, we have small limited space in the fridge and freezer and a set of those plastic storage drawer things for the likes of cereal, tins, sauces, pasta etc.

    My OH Mum goes to the same SW class as I do, she joined a few weeks after me seeing how easy it was and she is easily reached her target. I think this is because our living with them hasn't really put them out or feel as cramped as we do. We rush in after work to make something quick for dinner as we don't want to told them up with their cooking. In our own house I was able to occupy myself with cleaning and washing etc where as here I don't really want to disturb them by turning on the hoover at 9pm while they watch tv (we have our own TV in the bedroom where I go after dinner to watch what I usually would) so them I am stuck upstairs with nothing to do but think about (and mostly go and eat) bad foods that then take me over my syns, just because I am feeling sorry for myself.

    I know OH feels the same but for me it just feels a bit more uncomfortable, maybe if we had of moved in with my parents it would have been different as I feel like I wouldn't be intruding so much, but them it might leave the OH feeling how I do at the minute.

    The sooner I get this house the better, better for my sanity, my relationship, my work and my weight loss.

    Venting makes me feel a bit better, I think it is a bit of an excuse but I know once I am in my own house I can focus more.

    Is there anyone else in the same situation or with any tips on what might help the remainder of my time there?

    Hey hun.

    Just a thought, as your OH's Mum was doing SW as well couldn't you come to some arrangement where you each take it in turns to cook for everyone in the house. Lets face it SW meals are suitable for the whole family and this would save you having to rush in and out of the kitchen trying to get your food sorted before everyone else comes home and needs the kitchen.

    Fingers crossed the house comes along soon. It must be so frustrating to have to keep waiting and waiting. Hopefully though it will be all worth it in the end when you are in your lovely new home.

    Thanks Wegle! Well we had joked when we were moving in that is what we would do but to be honest I like a good meal when I come the same as my OH and some nights they will sit down to a small baked potato and some beans and the likes or a tin of soup, with us eating a big chicken breast, potatoes, cabbage and cauliflower or SW curry etc.

    My OH is pretty sure they don't eat enough for there meals and that's why they lost lots of weight quickly.

    Yeah it's hard if you are wanting different meals. I definitely couldn't cope with just soup or a small jacket for my tea! That's one of the reasons I love SW, so I can have a huge bowl of pasta with home made garlic bread!!

    Maybe you could make some extra large portions of freezable SW meals, then you could portion them up and stick them in the freezer meaning a few days a week you can still have a nice big slimming world dinner but it won't take up too much time in the kitchen. I'm thinking stuff like, spag bol, chilli con carne, SW chips etc. Might save you a bit of time, and some sanity!!

    Yea I know the great thing is that we can have so much of the good stuff like pasta and rice and enjoy it I might take that on board and freeze some, if it makes it that far and I don't scoff the lot !

    I quite regularly make a large pan of cheesy pasta with the intention of keeping some for lunch the next day but then somehow manage to scoff the lot for dinner!! Oops! Oh well, it's still on plan!
