    Cottonmouth's weight loss diary

    Hello!


    For those that haven't seen my post in introductions - I've been on (and more often, off) Slimming World for a couple of years now, and after losing a couple of stone and my weight going up and down with my motivation I am now only a few pounds lighter than where I started years ago!


    After being a reader of this forum for a long time I've decided to join in. I started following the plan properly a fortnight ago and I have started going to the gym regularly to do the Couch to 5k challenge and a few other bits besides.

    I've lost 7.5lb in the last 2 weeks but I know that my motivation tends to be short-lived so I'm going to keep a diary on here and hopefully join in on the other threads too, as I find many of the posts on here so inspiring.

    My confidence has gone to pot and I feel like a shadow of who I was a few years ago, even my friends are commenting now on how my opinion of myself is holding me back in life.

    I'm getting married in May next year and currently, the idea of trying dresses on in a shop, in front of my best friend TERRIFIES me - so I don’t know how I will ever get down the aisle if I don't do something about me weight and my confidence.

    So, I started a fortnight ago, I'm having my weighs in on a Monday. The first week I lost 7lb and the second (this morning's weigh in - I lost 1/2lb - which I'm a bit gutted about ifI'm honest - which is why I thought I'd join in on here to try to make me plan and keep on track.

    Here goes nothing!

    Not updated for a few days thanks to a very busy weekend! I've been good though, within syns every day with exercise on Friday. Went out for a meal on Saturday for the mother-in-law-to-be's birthday meal/mother's day meal and managed to get through that without blowing the diet - I had sparkling water and Piri Piri spiced chicken with salad (instead of chips_ and no dessert - I was very proud of myself as everyone elses burgers, ribs and chips smelt amazing! As such, I am mega disappointed with my weigh in this morning; a measly 1lb off! Hoping that the weightloss I deserve for last week is just waiting in the wings to come off - maybe I'll get a good loss next week - here's hoping! I'm working in a different city tomorrow in a building with airport level security so I can't take in cutlery, or food and drink with the seal broken - not entirely sure how I am ggoing to navigate that one sucessfully! Here's today's plan of action:

    Breakfast:


    Banana
    Cup of tea (HEXA)


    Lunch


    Fresh Tomato and Basil soup
    Pineapple chunks


    Dinner


    Cod
    New Potatoes
    Beans
    Pineapple Chunks (2 for 3 lol)


    Snacks

    Ben n jerries individual pot 14.5 syns


    Exercise


    30 mins Couch to 25k training on treadmill
    15 mins exercise bike 15 mins weights

    HEX A - SS MIlk
    HEX B - none
    Syns = 14.5

    Well done on your loss, 1lb off is better than 1lb on!

    I too was very proud of myself on Saturday night when I went out for dinner. I had Gammon & Eggs with Salad and no dessert - I had major food envy when looking around the table, but also a great sense of satisfaction of knowing how I'd stuck to plan!
