ProPoints From fat to thin!

Well I joined weight watchers 2 weeks ago today (31st aug). I have been loosely following slimming world for nearlly a year and have lost and gained the same stone. So enough is enough - I have made the leap to weight watchers in the hope that it is more flexible for when I do not have the time to cook from scratch and to also help me control my huge portion sizes!

This is just going to be my thoughts, feelins, recepies and maybe food diary some days. Its hopefully going to keep my head in the right place so any encouraging words you may have would be greatly appreciated :p

I am addicted to chocolate, crusty bread and most general crap really!! lol :8855:

Im trying to cut down on these and most of the time its not too bad but the week of TOTM I seem to eat everything in sight (including bucket loads of chocolate!!).

My first week I quite enjoyed getting into the plan but the day of my first weigh in I came on. I had lost 3lbs that day which I was really please with but this last week I have struggled! Mainly with chocolate. Meals have been within points thankfully and maybe this is why I have managed to STS.

Have to admit I didnt go to WI tonight, I weighed in at home, luckly I also weighed in on my home scales last week after ww weigh in so I can see that I have STS.

Im on holiday now for just over a week so I would love another STS or for a loss even as we are self catering so can control breakfast, snacks etc.

Anyways, I would just love to get back down to a 14-16. Currently a 18-20 so hopefully I can acheve this :) Heres hoping!!

Hi Kerry, Welcome to minimins . I too am a chocoholic so I know where you are coming from . TOTM is a nightmare and the only way I have got through it before is to have other small point treats in the house and basically distract myself i.e yogurts, mini light babybels, Walkers baked (Multipaks )2pp , fruit , merangue nests , sugar free jelly etc because if I have one piece of chocolate that week im off but the rest of the month I can have a small chocolate treat and be happy .

Hope things are going ok this week and get back to us next week . dont let the hols drag on !!!!!!

Thank you :)

I've banned my fella from buying any chocolate for me!

Have had a rubbish day. Was on a course in London and after it finished decided to go for a walk n down by the river. Was walking along when a woman n her child came up behind me, heard her say to the kid while huffing ' if we could get round this fat woman's arse'

I was gobsmacked, mortified, angry and a minute or so later burst into tears on the street :( she knew full well I could hear as she was walking past me as she said it. I did shout at her u nasty b**ch but don't think she heard :(

Feeling quite disheartened now, not to mention upset.

Why are these people blessed with a thin body?? Why can't they be fat n see how it feels to have nasty comments said about them!!!!

Like you say that about someone :eek:
I feel sorry for her poor child tbh, growing up with a shining role model like that!

Don't let her bring you down, your doing so well :bighug: x

i think peoples attitudes stink about weight issues, they dont see that you are trying to lose the weight or initially the reason it was put on in the 1st place, best to ignore comments like that, and as kimboowee said its the kiddies i feel sorry for as they grow up with the fat stigma, just carry on as you are going and remember you will not be "fat" forever she will always prob be a inconsiderate idiot!! xx gl with your weightloss xx

I know it can be really disheartening when someone makes a nasty comment but my general attitude is sod um!!! The thing is you are taking the steps to achieve a healthier lifestyle, and whilst we can change our weight, those people are stuck with their personalities! The thing in life is there will always be someone around who will critics us, whether it be weight, lifestyle etc, but the key is to know who you are and that's all that matters. X

Back from my hols today :( have just weighed in but as its late at night know its not gunna be a good one....5lbs on atm eeek!! got a couple more days of dinners out etc then from monday can get back into it properly.

My boyfriend proposed to me yesterday so its a great way to spur me on to be thinner!! So so happy but now its time to put the fat me away and actually get on the ww wagon for good! Going to try some of their ready meals this next week and bulk out with added veg. Will see how it goes if I can lose I may do that mon-fri and weekends cook myself a meal. Will save alot of money too as its getting faaaar too expensive to buy fresh meats each week sadly.

More or less coming together, got deposits down on most things, just gotta keep on saving!!! Trying not to stress too much now, sure I will be next year tho!!! Ordered my dress bout 2 weeks ago, completely different to what I originally wanted, very Girly! Should get it by end of January so hoping to have lost quite a bit by then, so they can take it in as needed. Got it custom measured so it's the size I am at the mo!
Have u thought of a date yet?

I love the wedding tv shows, don't tell the bride being top show at the moe!

Day one of ww tomoz, the rings too small by couple of sizes n as I want to lose weight this is a great incentive!! He won't get it expanded to have me lose weight n have it re sized again lol. Here's hoping it fits for Xmas :D
