Elly doesnt want her belly!

#1
Hello!

So, i'm one 'those' people, you know the ones, the yo-yo dieter! And i'm back on the wagon! (Slimming World)

I haven't ever used a support network like this so thought i'd give it a go to help with the motivation and inspiration!

I need to get my arse in gear (and into size 10-12s) I have about 2 stone to loose which will take me back to the weight I was when I met my husband 5 years ago (I blame him for the weight gain - skinny as a rake but can eat what he likes!)

I hope that this is the last time i have to do this. I'm really good at maintaining my weight, I just need to get to a lower weight first and then maintain it!

Any other newbies, feel free to jump aboard!

Elly

Hiya Elly, welcome to minimins :)

I'm doing it alone at home too and I've found keeping a food diary on here is really helpful both for keeping track of what I'm doing and for getting advice from kind folks ;)

I'd say you definitely need some fruit with your breakfast as that isn't hitting sucess express targets atm - it's 1/3 of each meal free foods and 2/3 superfree. You're also allowed 3-4 healthy extras each day on the sucess express plan and it's best to make sure you have these.

It also works well if you can vary your breakfasts (and all the other meals for that matter) to keep your body guessing and fire up your metabolism. I'd recommend browsing the SW recipes section of the forum for new ideas - and this site Slimming Eats - Slimming World Recipes also has really great and easy to follow recipes. Also try varying the plans you follow too as this can also help your metabolism and stop you getting bored :)

What day do you weigh in? Hope you have a great first week x

Hi ladies

Thanks for the support and info! Will defo try to vary my food. I struggle with breakfast as I don't like milk and can't eat bread. I know I should eat more fruit too!

I weigh in on a Thursday and today I lost 3lbs so not a bad start for my first week. Got a BBQ on saturday tho, but will try and be good. I'm thinking either steak/fish or homemade burger with salad and veg kebabs!

How are the rest of you doing?

I'm not a massive yoghurt fan, I like petit filous but I'm guessing they're synned. I might try magic porridge though!

Good luck with it if you have any questions or ideas to share let me know!

Hi what's magic porridge ???

Hi what's magic porridge ???
It's where you mix your porridge with yoghurt (and fruit) then put it in the fridge overnight ready for the next morning.

The oats soak up the yoghurt so it's like a thick porridge consistency with no dry bits like it would if you just put yoghurt on and eat it straight away :)

Hi
Thanks for the above might give it a go cause always have weetabix.
You don't make the porridge with milk then just dry over the yoghurt ?? Sorry if I'm being a bit thick :)

Nah you don't need milk - just measure out your dry oats into a bowl and add the yoghurt and chopped fruit, stir it all up then plonk it in the fridge :)
