My journey to slimville..*broom broom*

S: 16st4lb C: 16st4lb G: 11st0lb Loss: 0st0lb(0%)
Well, its about time that i started a little slimming world blog/diary thingie as ive been reading others on here and they're actually quite cool and interesting! Im not sure how mine will turn out, i cannot promise a new post every day but im going to try my best to post on here and keep it all updated :D

I have been doing slimming world since mid january this year, and so far ive lost a total of 14 pounds. This weeks weigh in was a shocking 4.5lb loss for me, which was my highest yet. But to be honest, i think it might of been a mixture of not attending weigh in last week (after having a goodish week) as i was poorly. But as soon as i didnt attend weigh in, i fell off the wagon a wee bit. Luckily, i managed to pick myself back up off the floor and got my ass into gear! (With the help of Sum on here too, thankyou again :) )

My hopes and dreams are to finally feel how i felt a few years ago.. being slim! I loved the days of being able to go into any shop in the high street and try on a pair of jeans in a size 14. Now days im a size 18, but i can get into a size 16 if i dont breathe! I did very well with slimming world a few years ago, and i even won "slimmer of the year" in the class and was presented with a medal and a flowers. I loved that moment, i was so happy and proud of myself and most importantly felt great.
I really want to feel like that again, bad things happened in my life the year before last which lead me to pile back on the weight. But that part of my life is forgotten about, and its now time to go back to slimville! :rolleyes:

So today is thursday 24th of feb, and im having a red day today. Reasons for this is i am trying red days to see how my weight loss is going to go. Since being back on slimming world ive had 1 week of EE (didnt really enjoy myself on it) then the rest has been green days and the odd day of EE. I tend to do EE days on a friday, as i travel to London to see my bf and stay. EE days are great for me on these days as i have no idea whats for tea and i can plan around it by having free foods during the day and so on.

Right, lets get down to my food diary for today -

Healthy A - 250ml ss milk
Healthy A -
Healthy B - 2 slices of ww wholemeal bread.
Healthy B-

Breakfast - nothing :( woke up late.

Lunch - chicken, bacon (fat removed) cooked on george foreman, with lots of lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, cress and radishes. Low fat mayonnaise on the side and ww brown bread. Vanilla chocolate sprinkle muller light yoghurt, strawberries and a banana.

Dinner - Extra lean minced beef, onions, oxo and cooked in bisto gravy. Mashed swede and carrot ontop and put in the oven to go crispy. Lots of yummy sweetheart cabbage on the side.

Pudding - another mullerlight yoghurt and fruit of some sort.

Syns - low fat mayo 2.5, bisto gravy 3

Fluids - lots of diet pepsi, milk allowance in tea's. Will try and have just water today aswell as i honestly dont have enough :(

So this is my first red day, im going to see if i notice the difference or crave potatoes/pasta!

I have another healthy B option to use up..but im in london and theirs nothing really in the bf's house thats available. I might have some more bread with my dinner but i dunno..i may pop up the shop and see if they have any alpen lights. :rolleyes:

If anyone is reading this then thankyou for reading! :thankyou:

Hi jellybeans,

Well done for starting a blog. Glad you had a good start to the week. Glad you've come back to SW and lucky you because you know it works for you (unlike some other newbies where it's scary eating lots of food not knowing what it will do to you).

Good luck for a good week.

Aww thanks for the kind reply! Slimming world really does work, well done on your loss so far! :)

Today's food has been good so far, unlike last night's feast! We went for dinner (which was very very late at night) after having a few drinks in a pub in soho (diet cokes for me!) and my food choices were not that great.

Dinner was a lovely burger with salad in a bun, i'd say 6 or 8 oz's worth, a handful of slim chips and a portion of onion rings. Im not going to worry about it, that time of night i was hank marvin and could of eaten anything!!

Todays been a good day so far, managed to jump back on the wagon and feel in control. Im planning on having a red day today, unsure of what to have for dinner though, need to think!!

So far ive had 4 pieces of bacon medallions, 2 slices of 400g wholemeal loaf with a dollop of ketchup. Then around 6 or 7 strawberries and a mullerlight. Going for a red day today, so i have one healthy B left (and 2 a's) which i might ask the bf to buy some new potatoes for tea to go with something! We shall see!


I dont really want to use any syns today, if i do it'll be a max of 5 and this will continue until weigh in day on wednesday.

I have learnt not to have no syns (unless I genuinely don't want any in which case it's fine) otherwise I tend to go off plan much more easily. Ultimately this plan works best if I stick to it so anything that makes that more likely is great :)

Hope you're still having a good day.

Hi Gail, thanks for the reply in my weightloss diary, means a lot :)

Well tomorrow is my weigh in day, and im really not looking forward to it. Had a wobbly few days again, this happened last week aswell which is just so silly. I think it didnt help me being off work last week as it was half term :( so i was out of routine and didnt exactly do much exercise!

I have been good last few days, but today has just ended up being the start of my time of the month..joy! So, who knows what the scales will say tomorrow night.. im not looking forward to it though.

On a positive note today i had 2 NSV's from 2 different people! This put a smile on my face, one being my mum which really gave me a push and smile. The other was whilst i was at work and a childminder commented that i look like ive lost some weight, was so nice. These have been my first 2 none scale victories, so even if i do gain tomorrow night, im just going to think about my nice comments i have had. My mum said to me "from behind, youre looking slimmer chrissie" whilst i was making dinner. Really made me smile xxx as i have gained a lot of weight since moving back into my parents, and when i did slim down a few years ago with slimming world my mum was so proud of me. I wanna feel like that again, im not loosing this weight for my mum, im doing it for me, but i do wanna make her proud at the same time.

So... fingers, eyes, ears, hands, feet, legs, arms everything crossed for tomorrow nights weigh in. I'll be well pleased if the scales are kind and ive stayed the same, but if i gain i gain, no biggie.
