    Diary of a new mum trying to lose 7 stone, this time I will do it!

    I have recently joined slimming world for the first time and am aiming to lose 7 stone to get down to 10 stone. My weight has crept up since turning 16, through college, university and then having my little boboy. I've had enough of feeling fat and frumpy, it affects everything in my life especially my confidence. I would like my partner and I to be healthy happy parents able to run around and take our son places like swimming etc. Without feeling embarrassed and ashamed at my size. We have recently moved to Ireland from England and I literally know no one, so it is quite a tough lonely time. Hopefully I will meet people when I go back to work from maternity leave but at the moment it is hard. Joining slimming world has given me something to think about and focus on, as well as giving me a break from the house one evening a week. Any support will be appreciated, good luck every one with your weight losses!

    2.5 lbs off, so i got my half a stone award! So happy it is the most weight i have lost in two weeks ever, just 11 pounds to go to get me in thd ,5s...my aim is the end of the year. I figured if i set myself a little target to reach just after xmas it might helpnme stay focused around all the temptation.


    Today was ok but had a bit of a slip this evening...
    Breakfast - melon, apple and muller light
    Snack - mini snickers 6 syns
    Lunch - pasta and sauce with mushrooms and ham
    Dinner - chilli with rice and slimming world wedges

    I accidentally put in wayyy too much Worcestershire sauce into the chilli sl it tasted strange haha, because i didnt really eat anything i ended up havihg 15 syns worth of chocolate!

    Healthy extra a and b were used in 2 ryvitas with dairylea.

    Im planning on having a max of 5 syns a day now, this saturday my boyfriend and i are going out for an anniversary meal and i would like to be able to relax and enjoy some wine etc. Then next weekend we are having a family thanksgivinb meal as our familys will all be in ireland and my partners mum is American.

    Bahhh so upset with my weight gain from just over relaxing and eating out over the weekend, weighed myself last night and two pounds on aghh, hopefully being good over the next couple of days until Wednesdays weigh in will reduce it a bit. How are you getting on Denise?

    Im so sorry Courtney i have only just seen your post! Well done on your 5.5 lbs off, thats amazing! How are you getting on? I tried so many times to do it from home and always gave up after a few days, i think having to weigh in at group really helps me as i have to face the music haha. I managed to convince my bf to come to group with me last week and it has helped a lot, if im craving chocolate in the evening he will remind me how many syns are in it (can be a pain sometimes haha). Having someone else to lose weight with kind of turns it into a competition, coukd you persuade your partner to try as well?

    Todays menu so far is
    Breakfast 2x oranges
    Lunch - slimming world chips, beans, ham and mushrooms

    For dinner i am cooking a beef hotpot from a recipe in the slimming world magazine.

    My boyfriends mum gave me some scan bran so when i have been shopping this week im thinking of making one of the cake recipes, the curly wurly cake sounds amazing.

    I attempted some slimming world haribo the other day, i wouldnt recommend them... they just tasted like slightly more solid jelly!

    I'm doing great Thanks, am hoping to get my 2 st award this week, only half a pound away
    I make chocolate scan bran cake regularly , love it....it has compensated for my 'normal' chocolate bars
    I have my 14 yr old daughter doing Sw with me, so a bit of competition there week before last we were exactly the same weight, and this week i overtook her by 2 lbs
    Keep going though, try thinking about what you 'can' have and perhaps some SW alternatives for what you like?
