    8.5 stone to go - bit daunting but possible!!

    Hiya, can't believe I have only just found this site!
    Thought I would start a thread with such a big task ahead!
    I rejoined sw in Oct last year 5 weeks after I had my second child (the 1st is 2) and I have to say juggling parenthood and weight loss does have its challenges for me but I'm focused and just trying to plan plan plan!
    Really enjoying the extra easy plan-packed full of my favourite foods-always a bonus . I do struggle if I have something 'bad' it's a downward spiral for the day (sometimes several-oops) but that's something to work on this year-well that and actually doing some exercise!
    I tend to batch cook foods and make a soup once a week for lunches to help keep me on track-I always need inspiration for meals-quick, easy and without a supermarket full of ingredients!
    Well thanks for reading and here's to reaching target (or as close as possible!) in 2015!

    Good luck on your journey - I too have just restarted sw, I did it for a few weeks last year but couldnt get my head around how I was "allowed" to eat so much and lose weight but hubby and I need to lose weight and I need to start cooking healthier meals for us and the kids so sw is a no brainer for us really.

    Thanks guys! I really hope this time I can get to target-I've tried others but not really got anywhere. I did try sw in 2013 but fell pregnant 2 weeks in-needless to say it didn't go well!
    I have to say I struggle with being able to eat 'unlimited' certain foods-i do have to have some restraint with pasta etc else I could eat it by the barrel full which I'm sure would not help my end goal!
    Weigh in on Wednesday-hoping to get a chunk off the 5lb I need towards that 4 stone (or even get it-fingers crossed)
    Good luck everyone

    Well that's the first weekend of the year almost over-it's been challenging, stressful but positive.
    My first mistake today was stepping on my dodgy scales which showed a 3lb gain-never a good place to be to start the day. Though after speaking to the husband and almost getting told off for having a sneak weigh I realised he was right-weight fluctuates, the scales aren't accurate and there are still 3 days till weigh in so the scales are hidden and I'm just going to weigh in at group, I know I've been good since the 1st and totally on plan so just got to keep going.
    Also lack of sleep is not helping-you would think after over 2 years of it that I would be used to it-but no, I am not now nor will I ever be a morning person or someone who functions well with broken sleep but I get the feeling I need to keep working on learning if I'm ever going to feel 'normal'
    Right moan over now for the positives, after shopping yesterday before sitting down I searched the cupboards and freezer for s & p foods, chucked them in a pot and made my soup for the week (something I was very thankful for today, I did not feel like cooking!) which actually tasted better than a lot of the soups I've made lately so a bonus esp as it's lunch till next week
    Whilst the little ones think sleep is for losers they certainly have their uses when it comes to a bit of body magic. My boy had me running around 'really fast' playing pirates and chasing which I have to say I was not feeling but we had lots of fun and I feel better for it. As for my baby girl whilst she can't run she certainly has me clocking up the steps walking up and down the front room bless her-any exercise is good though so I'll take it. I even managed to clear the clothes horse to reveal an exercise bike I brought several years ago and have used twice haha money well spent-but that's about to change my mini target this week is to go on it for 30 minutes at least 3 times-even if it's in chunks of 10 mins at nap time it will all add up!
    Foodwise breakfast: semi skimmed milk (hea) 2 x weetabix (heb)
    Snack: apple
    Lunch: soup
    Snack: 2 x Clementine's
    Tea: roast chicken, veg pack, smoked paprika and peri peri roasties and gravy (1.5 syns)
    I've precooked meals for the next 2 weeks so no excuses-once they're used up I'm going to give the extra easy sp plan a go!
    Feel really good about today the old me would have got annoyed, thought 'this isn't working' and found myself at the bottom of a 6 pack of crisps and chocolates-I'm not saying that will never happen again but it shows me how far I've come in a few weeks, so that for today at least I am finishing on a high!
    Hope everyone has had a fab weekend and here's to the next week!

    Well today has gone well, my lovely husband surprised me with a music player and headphones after I smashed my iPod a year ago to keep me motivated whilst exercising-bless him he must really think I'm going to do it-no pressure lol. Just finished 15 mins on the bike-ok so not 30 but better than 0 I felt like doing
    Foodwise was the same as yesterday but with a free spicy beef stew and a veg pack for tea.
    Hope tomorrow goes as well (or better!) x

    It's definitely made me think twice about not exercising a which is a good thing-i think (my legs beg to differ lol).
    Haha I think he just feels guilty for the mountain of rubbish he eats in front of me without gaining a lb grr-i swear I gained 10lbs just ogling his tea earlier
    I will try not to bore you everyday but just for my first couple weeks of adding in exercise I'm afraid I might!
    After a very unwelcome 3.30am till 5.30 am and then a 6.45am wake up call (cheers lil ones-good job they're lovable!) I thought today would pass by in a daze-which it pretty much did but bulk cooking in advance saves me from myself so at least I didn't have to think about food so had a good free food day as planned.
    Decided not to sit down after doing the boring dishes and completed 30 mins on the bike, yay!
    Well tomorrow is weigh in day so I have everything crossed for at least 3.5lb-here's hoping
    Hope everyone is having a good week so far x
