    Hi, I'm 27 and this is the second time (and final time) round for me on SW! I originally started SW on 31/12/13, I did well losing around 2-3lbs a week then after a few months I started to slip up, I would miss a few weeks at group then go get weighed and find out I have gained 5lbs (oh how I hate you 5lbs!), then I would spend the week living on water, lettuce and chicken breast, fast forward to the next weeks weigh in and it's bye bye 8lbs. The following week I go off plan stay away from group for a few weeks and it all repeats over and over again, I say goodbye and stop going and eating SW in April 2014. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago and I am back but this time I actually want to reach target. I wasn't quite in the zone the last time so didn't give the plan 100%, but I am now officially in "the zone". I still have the same goals I have always had, to drop 2-3 stone, to shred my body (my belly in particular) of fat, to look "normal" and healthy, to look nothing like the dreaded photo that was taken of me. Yes the dreaded photo, I am sure we have all been there! It was taken by my mum when I was visiting her on Wed, there I am slightly bent over and there "it" is, the belly, the ass, the hips, it's all there (beneath my clothing thank god!) but there is no missing it! There is also the fact that when I disappear out of a room my all I can hear are my parents "hasn't she gained weight", "did you see her belly?" OMG I am mortified!! I also took the kids to visit their other grandparents (in-laws), and my M.I.L cannot stop staring at my belly (cringe). I was sooooo relieved when I got home that day, my husband was home and the first thing he says to me is "that's a lovely top, you look wonderful" I could have tackled him to the ground and snogged him for that, I didn't though for fear I may crush him! That "top" from that day onwards is now called "the fat top", the next time I wear it I want to be able to get lost in it, It's lovely to know my husband loves me at whatever size and shape I am, but I think I have gotten too comfortable. I would like to be a stone lighter before I see my folks and in-laws again, and i'd like to reach target in time for the new year! I started back in group last Tuesday, and after this weeks "crisis" I will never go back to my old ways.
    I have been on plan all week (weigh-in is tomorrow morning) and I am hoping for 2lbs off, well to be honest even half a pound will have me jumping for joy! I am having a red day today, tea and All Bran(hexB) for breakfast, off to plan lunch in a min then going out with the kids to the park for some body magic!

    Hi hun just coming through to wish you luck with your diary and your weight loss.

    I'm sorry that happened to you with your parents and in laws some people can be really insensitive I have an insensitive dad and sad to say but we've all had one of those moments.

    One of my worst was going to some strangers house because I'd bought something from them turning up at the door and her daughter saying 'are you having a baby? its going to be a really big baby'...I wasn't pregnant...I plastered a smile on the outside and laughed it off while inside I was holding back the tears and just wanted to crawl under a rock. And still that wasn't enough to get me to sort myself out as that was a year ago. So well done to you for taking a negative moment and turning it into a positive choice.

    I will keep checking back on you and your diary.

    Well it has certainly opened my eyes and I shall look forward to the day where they all look at me and say "wow!", time to stop treating my body like a food bin and give it the love, respect and attention it deserves! :superwoman:

    So today I have done the "back to school" shop for my daughter (thank god that is over), it was crazy out, I'm surprised there was anything left in the shops. Came home for lunch, I was so tempted to go to Café Rouge but I resisted and did the kids some sandwiches etc whilst I made a chicken salad from yesterdays leftovers, 1 syn in total (mayo). Have spent all afternoon cleaning the house, think I have a huge problem with bleach as I seem to go through a bottle a day (eek!), but now it's all done I can finally relax until my husband makes a mess getting ready for work this evening (argh!!). Dinner this evening will be beef stir-fry (yum yum) followed by a banana & custard muller light, I bought a pack of WW milk chocolate digestives which I will allow myself to have one or two with my cup of tea this evening, they are 2 syns each which isn't bad, I am also hooked on snack-a-jacks at the moment, this weeks flavour is salt & vinegar (2 syns for 1 jumbo) I do miss the caramel flavoured ones as I like to break it up and eat it like popcorn :( Tomorrow morning I will be going to group, I hope to god I've lost 1 or 2 pounds. Whilst I am there I am going to pick up a copy of the 2014 food directory so I can plan my food shop more carefully, I might also get the family feasts on a budget book if my consultant has a copy. Before when I did SW I did a treat night every Tues (after being weighed), I plan on doing that this time round but instead of getting a take-away i'm going to try one of the fake-away recipes, I did try the big mac in a bowl recipe (from the book) and it was really good but I am thinking about doing the donner kebab recipe or one of the pizza's.....hmmmmmm....... Need to go put dinner on, will update in the morning, fingers :fingerscrossed: for me :D

    I lost 3lbs!! I am really pleased, I thought I might only get 1-2lbs :D I did plan on reaching my club10 next Tuesday but that would mean I need a 9lb loss by then, something tells me that's not going to happen lol, so I will aim for another 3lbs off. We didn't do any image therapy in group this morning it was woman of the year voting and some member brought in some nibbles/treats to try (I avoided them, saving my syns for dinner), so I am a little disappointed as I am still feeling a little upset about the "fat" comments but hey ho, onwards and upwards. Breakfast was All Bran (hexB) with semi milk and a cup of tea and I had an apple (pink lady) at 11. Not sure what I am having for lunch and dinner, I am on the original (red) plan so I will check out the recipes, I have kind of gone off the idea of having a fake-away tonight, must dash, it looks like rain so I need to bring my washing in quick!

    Thank you!! :D


    I have to be quick this morning, I want to do some gardening before the rain comes (again!). So yesterday I had a tuna mayo sandwich (hexB & 1 syn) for lunch and dinner was cottage pie with turnip mash (free), I have never had turnip mash before and I must say I probably wont again, I could eat it but it was a bit ......funny, I love turnip in soup but that's as far as it goes!! Spent the rest of my syns on those lovely WW chocolate digestives. Yesterday in general was boring until 3:30 when my books arrived for my next uni module :D I was sooooo excited (yes I am really that sad lol!) I started studying with the open university last year, I am doing a BA (Hons) in French & History, this year I start my first French module, I don't know how I am going to resist drinking loads of red wine and eating brie and baguette for the next 9 months!
    Going to go have some All Bran (hexB and hexA milk) then have a tug of war with the weeds in the garden!

    Well I have been MIA for a week, I have been stuck in bed with a migraine :( I get them pretty much every month, but this has been the second one this month and has been by far the worse. My husband took the week off work to look after the kids for me but has had to return to work today, the kids are being good, they are currently playing on the PS3 whilst I drink my tea and catch up online - I'm feeling much better today so will get back on plan, my husband has been making me soup, broths and stews etc which I don't think were SW friendly lol, but I don't mind as it has only been 1 week. Group is today but I wont be going as I am not quite 100%. Anyway I need to go get the kids their breakfast, have a good day all!

    Sorry you've not been well my hubby suffers terrible with migraines so you have my sympathies as I know how badly he suffers. Glad you're feeling a little better and its also my 1st day back on plan...I have a few more days till weigh in but I think this weeks just going to be a write off...so maybe we should both just have a break this week and start a fresh at next weigh in? LoL Good luck being back on plan.

    Well, it's been a while! Let me think back, since I last updated on here (a month or so ago) I had a blip and gained all the weight I lost plus a bit more, since then I have been losing little and often with a few weeks maintained (see my signature). I am doing alright, I should try to fit in some body magic but to be honest I really can't be bothered, I'm really trying to focus on what I eat and trying to reduce my cravings for chocolate (it's working!).

    Home life is so so, my marriage isn't great at the moment and it doesn't help that my family hate him and he hates my family (it's constantly little old me stuck in the middle), god knows if we will still be together by Christmas. My children are doing really well, my son is going to be 4 tomorrow which means I really need to stop treating him like a baby :cry:. As for my daughter, since my husband and I don't shout/argue when she is home or awake she is doing much better, a lot happier, school work is improving, she is very much a happy little bunny.

    Tomorrow we are going to pizza hut, my son loves pizza and even more the ice cream factory! I have been totting up syns and it is going to be impossible for me to eat under 15 syns, I would only be able to have 2 slices of pizza, now i'm sorry but 2 slices??? Really?? I like about 4 slices so I will flexi-syn tomorrows meal by around 30 syns, it shouldn't really affect my loss next week, i'm hoping for around 2lbs off a week leading up to Christmas which COULD get me to target by the new year, who knows eh!

    Ummmmm, I'm still training to be a mobile nail technician (really need to kick my ass into gear and complete my qualification),I'm constantly working on new nail art designs atm so my house has glitter and gemstones etc everywhere! Also my second year of uni has started back up, I am studying my first French module this year which means I can give history a break until next October, no more bibliographies and references for a year (trust me the essays are easy compared to all that mumbo jumbo, it drives me mad!).

    Anyway that's all for now :D

    Night night!

    :rant2: So I was planning on being good today and flexi syn tonights meal out, well it has all gone to pot! I had a cooked breakfast at the garden centre café, chocolate coated ring donut, caramel waffle things which came with my large cappuccino, appletize, birthday cake (lots of it), I feel soooo sick :9529: really not looking forward to pizza hut now :sign0137: , might just have nibble on some salad. Think I might have to drink some peppermint tea to calm my tummy, now normally (before slimming world) I would stick my fingers down my throat, very tempted right now but I know its not healthy so will avoid. WHY DID I EAT ALL THAT CR*P!! ARGH!! There are times (like now) when I really hate being me.:whoopass:

    Success express is my plan of action until I get weighed (next Tuesday) and I will also include some body magic! I power walked to my daughters school at 3pm then did interval running with her on the way back, I would have ran the entire way home but she is only 6 and wanted to catch her breath, I didn't feel silly doing it either because it was raining! Don't feel sick anymore, I am going to own this week, I am determined to get a 3lb loss!! COME ON!! :girlpower:

    So day 1 of success express has began! I've only had a coffee at the moment, I will have some fruit and cereal after I have taken the kids to school! I refuse to stand on my scales, i'm quite nervous because I imagine I have gained 1-2lbs after yesterday. This week I will be eating very basic (boring) meals (serves me right!), lunch today will be some tuna mayo and loads of salad, dinner will be turkey breast with lots and lots of mixed veg (maybe with a small amount of gravy), also for the rest of the day I will be drinking only water and peppermint tea! There will be lots of fruit to snack on, including some dried prunes for my extra HexB and if I get a sweet tooth I will have a mullerlight! I will also be fitting in some body magic later once my husband has gone to work, just need to decide what exactly I will do!
