Hi everyone Having skulked around in the background for some time, not really getting anywhere - I need to change something. I have tried Slimming World in the past with success but put it all back on thinking I an go it alone. I have a beautiful 14 month old boy who I have dedicated my life to but by doing that, I have forgotten about me. I am the Queen of lying to myself and can easily dismiss the disgusting amount of sugar and chocolate I eat as nothing and be genuinely upset when I stand on the scale to see a gain or STS. I can't get to group so I need to just start being honest with myself about how much I'm eating, especially how much I'm eating off plan. I'm a terrible secret eater but am pledging right now to start a weigh diary as well as a food diary where I am utterly honest. I'm writing this whilst eating a bar of smarties chocolate, which isn't the best start I'll admit. I'm 35, 5ft 3 and I weighed in on Monday at 14st 12.75 lb. I would like to be 9st 1 which is slap bang in the middle of my 'healthy' weight range. However, I would also like to have another baby so this might be a slow broken journey. I fell pregnant last time at 13st 3 and would like to be back to that weight at most, ideally a bit lower when I fall with number 2. I don't really get on with Extra Easy as it doesn't really feel like dieting, which I know is the point but if I don't feel like I'm dieting then I don't know where the boundaries are! I do do EE at the weekend so it's more like a treat (but then I also have treats!). Most days I do green. I love cooking but don't have much time anymore as I work full time and spend as much time as I can with my baby and my fella. This week I have one goal - stick to plan 100%, just for 1 day. And then I can follow that with another. To do that I am going to limit my choices. I know the amazing thing about SW is how much you can eat but I think I need some rules to get my head in the zone. So this week the menu will be: Quorn Chilli and Rice Omelette and Salad Jacket potato with HEA cheese and sweetcorn Batchelors rice Batchelors pasta n sauce Free Soup Either HEB Porridge or HEB Ryvita for breakfast Obviously there will be free stuff and fruit to bulk this out. I am going to spend syns on a hot choc and a freddo at the end of the day. Anyway, here's to being honest and sticking to plan.
