Hi everyone, I'm new to posting here but I have been lurking and stalking all of your posts for a few weeks now I've found the answers to most of the queries that I've had by doing this and therefore, I haven't needed to ask any questions...until now!
I've been doing Slimming World for a few weeks now and been getting on OK. These are my stats so far;
Start date 30/7/2014 - 204lbs (I'm only 5' 1"!!)
Week 1: -5lb
Week 2: -1lb
Week 3: -2lb
Week 4: STS
Week 5: -2lb
Total loss so far = 10lbs
My big goal is that I want to wear a bikini when I go on holiday in October. It will be the first time I have worn one since my eldest daughter was born 17 YEARS AGO!! hahaha
I usually find it very hard to lose weight, and I have previously had to cut out whole food groups (carbs etc) to get any results, but of course it all piles back on when you start eating it again. So I'm really pleased that SW is working for me and although I've reduced my carb intake slightly, I haven't cut anything out. The only thing I have cut out is sugary desserts or snacks, except for the odd one if my syns allows it. I have been eating mostly unprocessed foods and feel much better that I did before I started.
BUT I'm going to V Festival in a couple of weeks and we are not camping, we are staying in a local Travelodge. So there won't be any facilities to cook when I'm in the festival or even in the hotel room (except a kettle). I've found a few useful threads about camping/festivals but all of them are mostly involving hot water or cooking facilities.
Help!! What do I eat??
I really don't want to fall off the wagon this early! It's also my sister's birthday shortly after the festival AND my birthday at the end of the month, so if I let go of my resolve at all, that will be another excuse to not get back on the wagon again and I'm FED UP with being overweight.
Any advice/ideas would be really appreciated.
