    New and feeling really bad :-(

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the site although I've been reading for a while and found it really helpful.
    I started Slimming World two weeks ago. The first week I stuck to it completely and lost 6lb. The second week it was my birthday and I managed to resist most treats but did have a couple of pieces of cake and quite a few chocolates... I didn't eat many other syns during the week though and lost 2lb at weigh in. However, this weekend I have two meals out, Italian on Friday and all you can eat Chinese on Saturday. I was worrying about eating too many syns and putting weight on and for some stupid reason decided there was no point trying to be good and so had a massive binge today :-( I feel so guilty and stupid as I probably could have stayed within my syns on Friday and flexi-synned on Saturday. I'm embarrassed to write down what I've eaten but am going too anyway. I've had four Hotel Chocolat chocolates, seven Thorntons, the remains of a bag of Walkers Sensations, five Crème Eggs and a piece of chocolate cake. I can't believe I've done it- that's more than my weeks syns in one day! The only good thing is that now all of my birthday treats have gone.
    If I'm straight back on plan for the rest of the week is there any way I can avoid putting on weight (even with the Chinese Saturday) or have I blown it now? I get weighed on Monday. I feel so guilty and horrible :-(

    Hi chocolatefudge, and welcome to the forum.

    Firstly, don't think that you're alone in what has happened, this has happened to us all on occasions, there really is no point dwelling on it now, what is done is done. It is impossible to predict whether the combination of the chocolate, the Italian and the Chinese will result in a loss, a gain, or a maintain, so really try not to worry. What you can do though is perform some damage limitation at the weekend. It is quite easy to visit the Italian without going overboard on the syns, just try to avoid the creamy dishes, the bread, the puddings and the booze. Choosing something like fish or chicken with veg would be fine. Similarly with the Chinese, although it's a bit harder to be slimming world friendly with Chinese over the Italian, it's still possible to not go overboard! Try to avoid the sweet, sticky and fried and go for dishes like chicken in black bean or beef and mushroom. Boiled rice instead of fried will also save on the syns.

    And if, IF, you do have a gain or a maintain next week then you need to firstly be soooo proud of your loss so far! 8lb in two weeks in seriously good, so even if you were to put on a pound or two, if you calculate your average loss over the three weeks I'm sure it will still be impressive.

    We all fall off the wagon once in a while but the best thing you can do is take it in your stride and try to avoid the bumps in the road in the future! Xx

    My advice, is draw a line under today, forget about it and move on. You have had you're binge and now try to become positive. If you stick to plan 100% then you should be okay for a loss, but be prepared if it isn't as big a loss as you want

    I agree with the others. What's done is done, worrying won't make a scrap of difference. As Wellington said "tie a knot and carry on".

    And as all those "treats" are now gone, make it a rule never to have those things in the house again. Then if temptation does strike, they won't be there to lead you astray.

    I can only see positives in your post:

    1) You have been motivated to join this forum

    2) You have a refreshingly honest personality

    3) You understand your weaknesses (and that is half the battle, in my opinion)

    4) You *want* to do something about it! (and that is the other half of the battle, in my opinion)

    5) You still have much of the week remaining before your weigh in


    Here are my thoughts on how you could do some 'damage limitation':-

    a) accept the advice from more experienced members above: Stick to the plan 100% from now

    b) can you increase your activity for the week? Walking extra, perhaps?

    c) Most importantly: ditch the "guilt"!!! (
    Did you know, "guilt" is an anagram of "Lug it"? And that is what we do with guilt, we lug it around everywhere we go: it will weigh you down far more than anything you've eaten: get rid of it!)

    d) Remind yourself: you cannot change what *has* happened, you can only change what you *make* happen So, what can you make happen between now and weigh in?

    e) Rome wasn't built in a day! You will have losses, you will have gains and you will have plateaus.
    Think of it as a bus/car/taxi journey: some roads you will sail along; others may be a bit congested and hold you back a bit; other times you get stuck at traffic lights/pedestrian crossings. But, you don't give up on your destination do you? No, of course not, you persevere

    Finally,

    f) focus on what you *have* achieved!! You have already shown an impressive weight loss in a very short time - well done!!!

    Wow! Thank you so much everyone, I can't tell you how much better I feel reading your replies. I feel much stronger today and am going to stay on plan 100% Chocolate is my major weakness so I'm going to make sure to keep none in the house (I ate it all yesterday anyway!) If it's in I can't help but eat it, no matter how full I get I can't stop, it's like an illness!

    I've looked at the Italian menu and think I'm going to choose a pasta dish with tomato, onions, bacon and chilli. I'm hoping this will be quite low in syns and it will only be any oil used in cooking that I will need to worry about?

    Well done for planning your meal out in advance and drawing a line. That makes a MASSIVE difference to staying on plan when eating out. Yes, it sounds like you just need to allow some syns for the oil. Unfortunately restaurants do tend to use fresh pasta (not dried) which has a couple of syns (it contains oil) but overall this is a very healthy choice. Also, if you save your HexB option for the day, you can use that to offset 6 syns from the oil, as Italian dishes use olive oil and 1 tbsp. is a HexB (6syns).
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain between 10st7 and 10st10, have a super healthy lifestyle, and be happy!

    I have had weeks like this and was supplied that i didnt put much on if any at all. I crave chocolate so instead i have an options hot chocolate and that usually hits the spot. As for chinese i have one most weekend from the takeaway and still lose weight i tend to have chicken with pineapple which is like sweet and sour chicken but the chicken is just chicken not battered and i have it with plain boiled rice i think its about 7/8 syns so well within my syn limit for the day.

    Keep up the good work and be proud of yourself you are doing a fantastic job xx

    Thanks again!

    Gwella, thank you so much for the Hex tip, I didn't realise oil was included as I only ever use mine for Hifi bars or wholemeal bread so wasn't sure what else was allowed.

    Pudge, I'm not too bothered about the main section of the Chinese, but each course is brought to the table for us to share so there will be loads of different starters at the beginning. I don't want to look really strange and sit and eat nothing and obviously don't want to pay for something I won't eat but will try to make the healthiest choices that I can. Fell much better for just posting on here!

    I'm in the same situation as you chocolatefudge, had a really tiring day yesterday, my little boy was sick in need 200% attention but I still kept to the plan but this morning I woke up with horrendous back pain from picking him up all day yesterday, when I dropped him to creche i had to go to the garage to pump up a nearly flat Tyre and bought and ate 1 pack of milky way stars, a boost bar and 3 freddos.......and then had free chips and gravy. Feel like ****!! I've had to take co codamol for the back pain which really dopes me out so feeling extra tired now.

    Lesson learnt for me is to get up early and eat breakfast before life gets in the way!!! Being prepared is the trick I think. I wish you the best of luck.......remember we're all in the same boat we just don't tell eachother! x
