    wishing for skinny legs

    So I've started slimming world for the last time because this time I will conquer it and those daemons. This time I'm ready for it; counting and looking up syn values, keeping a food diary and measuring my a and b choices. I know starting around the festive season isn't ideal but if I don't start now I'm going to get bigger and bigger and I'm no longer listening to my half hearted excuses. I have several reasons for starting again.
    1. I refuse to buy bigger clothes and a result I don't have a lot of clothes that fit.
    2. I want time feel confident to wear skirts and dresses without tights.
    3. Feel good when I stand next to friends.
    4. I'm going to a wedding in august next year and I don't want that feeling come July of why didn't I try.
    So I'm sure there might be a bit of self loathing on the way but I will get there this time.

    Hey Skinneylegs, welcome to Minimins!

    Definitely one of my reasons for shifting the weight was clothing. I had bags of clothes that didn't fit, and I was sick of having to spend money buying frumpy ugly clothes just because I couldn't fit in nice size 10s and 12s.

    Wish you all the best of luck, what sort of eating plan are you going for? x

    I'm doing slimming world but not going to the classes. I've got some lovely clothes but I'm finding it hard to fit into them. What plan are you following?

    Not doing any plan at all. I started in June by just changing what I was eating and upping the exercise. I did a few weeks of calorie counting but this felt too restrictive so I went back to just eating healthily and watching portion sizes. I've lost 1lb per week since I've started so it's not as fast as other diets but I'm getting there and it's staying off.

    I think it's better lose it slowly because then you change your eating habits and whatever works for one person wont always work for someone else. I've read your thread and you sound like your doing really well.

    Thanks Skinnylegs, yeh definitely agree that what works for one person won't necessarily work for another. I've read bits and bobs about SW and that seems quite good in that it encourages changing your eating habits rather than restricting what you eat? I'm sure you'll get on really well as long as you have that right mindset. When are your weigh-ins? x

    I find slimming world easy because you don't have to weigh everything. I'm doing it on my own but my weigh in is every Thursday. My problem is when I get bored decide to "treat" myself.

    It's really strange what your body tricks you into thinking. I go and pick my brother up and all I can think about is food so when I drop him off I pop to the shop to get a yogurt and a cereal bar for my healthy extra. They only have strawberry yogurt which I'm not fussed on but I'm hungry so it will do. They have no alpen light cereal bars so I'm avoiding crisps and chocolate like the plague . Now when I get home I have the yogurt but still feel hungry but knowing dinner isnt for at least another three hours so I search the house but nothing. So I have a big glass of squash and you know what, I'm no longer hundry, makes you wonder how many times I've mistaken thirst for hunger.

    Having a really rubbish day. I wasn't prepared for work this morning e.g. not taking any food with me, we went out but there was nothing on the menu that I could eat, didn't fancy a jacket potato. Then after work I had to go home and carry on taking tiles off the floor luckily I had a yogurt in my fridge so ate that but after an hour and a half I felt rough because I hadn't eaten properly. My next job was popping the shops for some stuff for tonight's dinner and I though aha Alpen Light bars I can have two of those but flip me they didn't sell them. I get to my mum and dads where I'm staying at the moment and ate properly (its 3.30 now.)
    So i've eaten but my body is craving sweet and I'm not feeling great though I've got dinner in the oven and I'll eat before I go out to a Halloween party tonight.
    At least hopefully I wont eat party food and i'm taking diet pepsi with me.

    The whole point of this post is to say, be prepared have food ready and don't not eat because I'm certainly paying the price for it now.

    Well said - I had to chuck me dinner last night as someone sneezed in it (Eugh) and as I was trapped at work, I couldn't get to shops to buy something else. Thought I'd be ok but I was snacking on cereal bars and snak a jacks last night, woke up this morning at work mega hungry and still can't go to the shops until I'm home tomorrow!! It's hard when your not prepared!!

    It can be horrible because ur clinging onto good intentions by the skin of your teeth. Hopefully you don't have to stay much longer and you'll be able to fill up. How do you find slimming world being a vegan?

    I have an issue and issue that I like to call, the evening. It's strange I'm good all day but something happens in the evening, all that good and hard work goes straight out of the window. Tonight I've saved my healthy extra B and I've got loads of milk so I've decided weetabix and milk it is, maybe with a teaspoon of sugar. Wow what a treat! Hopefully this will work and I wont end up ruining it tonight.

    I got let home early (ie tonight instead of tomorrow morning) because there are wasps in the bedroom and I'm allergic. Only time I've been greatful for an allergy I did get home and have a glass of wine and some sorbet, but I've had a mad week this week and needed some boosting, back on to plan tomorrow. I find being vegan it has limited my choices even more, it has taken me much longer to adjust than my non vegan freinds on slimming world who can fill up on free yogurt, eggs, ham etc which are all things you can 'grab' and go with...i have to cook everything or prepare everything, especially if i want something savoury...which is all well and good if I'm at home doing nowt, but when at work I am just not prepared for it...It will take time to get around it, and tweak it, but I believe I can make it work 99% of the time (the one percent being when I want to really drink!) it will just take work...like i said my non vegan friends have yogurt if they want a snack, but no such thing as fat free vegan 'yogurt' so its all syns.

    Wow, I would find it too hard being a vegan in terms of just grabbing something. Do you have to have different A choices? Well done for you for sticking at it and making it work for you though.

    Over the past couple of days I've felt really in control and probably haven't felt like this for a while regarding food, haven't looked for the next binge or the next treat. Sometimes you need that big kick up the backside and mine was the scales last Thursday.
    Today I've been at work, which went well took lots of free foods with me and a nice filling lunch too and on a plus I didn't binge when I got home either. The only downside is that my knees really hurt but I'm feeling positive about the diet so the knees can go mend themselves.
