    Nothing to lose, except half my body weight

    So, after many years and failed attempts to lose weight, I figured I had nothing to lose by joining Slimming World. I am currently the biggest I have ever been, and I have had enough. I am a boredom/comfort eater, and often lack control when it comes to food. I like nothing more than tucking into a nice big takeaway, or a block of cheese.

    I went along to a SW group with 2 work colleagues. I get very anxious/nervous in new situations, and attending a group is not something I would ever do by myself. Plus, I have been sceptical about things like Slimming World and Weight Watchers for years, naively seeing them as a money making scheme. But, I have been pleasantly surprised by SW, especially by the superfree and free foods. I am feeling really positive, and I can see that this isn't a diet, but a change in my relationship with food.

    My first weigh-in was 2 weeks after joining, as I was on holiday the week before. After only 4 days on plan and 7 days of unhealthy food and lots of alcohol, I had maintained my starting weight. I was very happy with this as I was convinced I would of gained.

    Now, the only outcome is a slimmer, healthier me. I am going to try and include some body magic as well to aid the weightloss. There is a long way to go, but I am going to do my best to get where I want to be.

    Hopefully, having a diary here will help keep me focussed, and if I go wrong help show me where.

    Not a bad day today. Food could of been more inspiring though.

    Breakfast - half a tin of spaghetti hoops, 2 poached eggs, 2 slices wholemeal bread (HEb) and 4 Sainsbury's Be Good to Yourself Cumberland sausages (4 syns)
    Lunch - 2 corn on the cob
    Dinner - Salmon, dried spaghetti, curly kale and a sauce of 25g full fat soft cheese (3 syns), dill and some semi-skimmed milk (from HEa)
    Snack - punnet of blueberries

    HEa - 250ml Semi-skimmed milk
    HEb - 2 slices Hovis wholemeal (400g loaf)

    Syns used - Sausages (4), Full fat soft cheese (3) = 7 syns

    I didn't enjoy dinner, it was one of my less successful experiments. The sauce was lacking something, and the salmon was frozen fillets from Sainsbury's which I won't be getting again.

    I also did 10 mins on my stationary bike and managed 2 miles. I felt like I could of gone on longer, but thought I shouldn't push it.

    That was all I wanted, I normally eat more than that, breakfast and dinner were quite big though. I some days where I feel like I have eaten way too much, but it is all free food.
    I like salmon put in a tin foil parcel with lemon juice and dill, cooked for about 25 minutes, maybe bit longer or a bit less. Then served with boiled potatoes and salad.

    Hope your foot is ok, and the Docs find out what's wrong.

    The end of the week has been a bit rubbish to be honest. After weigh in on Thursday I felt a bit down as I didn't lose as much as I was hoping for. I lost 0.5lb, which is still a loss, but I thought I had been following the plan and done quite well. Tuesday was a wash out as I went to an ice cream bar with work, but I only had 3 scoops of gelato. Friday I fell off the wagon completely, shop bought ready made korma, aloo saag and a whole bottle of wine! But, yesterday was a new day, and I did really well, 10 syns and good amount of superfree food. I decided to think of it as a fresh start, and read my book again. I think it has worked as I am now feeling more positive about the whole thing.

    I now need to re-find my motivation to exercise. It was far too hot yesterday, but so far today seems cooler, so I will get on my stationary bike whilst I watch a film or something.

    Very good week this week. I lost 2.5lbs at weigh-in on Thursday! I was so happy when I saw the scales, it made me realise that I can do this and I will lose all the weight I don't need!

    I am trying to focus more on the superfree foods. Looking at my food diary I am good at eating the free foods, but the super ones can be a bit lacking. So tomorrow when I plan my week, there will be loads of super fruit and veg.

    I have also completed week one of my bronze body magic reward. Which I am really proud of myself for doing, as exercise has never been one of my favourite things to do.

    Great week this week. I have been having a proper breakfast everyday, and not snacking on bread at work. I have managed to get in a lot of superfree to every meal, which I was surprised I was able to do as I am not the best fruit/veg eater. In spite of a whole bottle of wine and a pint of beer at the weekend, I somehow lost 6lbs tonight! To say I am stunned is an understatement! So, I am hoping that if I carry on the way I have been this week, then the weight will drop off at a nice steady rate.
