ohhh the plateau!!!!

Hi all

I have been doing slimming world for a year and a half. My starting weight was 13st 7 pounds and I've managed to get down to 11st10 and have stayed around this weight for nearly two months!!!! :mad:

My weight loss thus far has been slow normally half a pound a week which can really get you down when there are some people who manage to get all there weight off in 3 months!!

I have always cooked from scratch so when i joined the diet it wasn't such a drastic change to what I would normally eat just alot less wine :cry:

I am determined not to let this defeat me especially with my goal in sight.

I currently follow the green plan (OH is a veggie) and thought i would post a diary to see if there are any tips you guys could give me.

The one think I have decided to do this week is switch to red the (OH can sort himself out) as I think my body has got used to all the lovely carbs. Going to have one more green day and switch tomorrow.


Breakfast: two slices wholemeal toast (400g loaf)1hexb 2tsp butter (2 syns) Mar-mite and pineapple

Lunch: Spaghetti with olive oil (1hexb) chilli flakes, garlic and Parmesan cheese (hexa) mixed berries and yogurt

Dinner: Thai yellow curry 3syns contains baby sweetcorn, aubergine, courgettes, peppers with rice. Kit Kat 5.5 syns

milk for tea and coffee(1hexa)

As you see i am a planner so i know what I will be consuming each day. If i wasn't organised i wouldn't stay on plan!!!!!

Looking forward to all your thoughts and comments

Your plan looks great to be honest. Butter is 2 syns per level teaspoon though, unless you're using low fat marg etc...

Hi Sinead!

Anyone who is a lover of vino is a friend of mine ;)

I've only been doing the plan for 12 weeks and I'm happy to say I've lost over a stone :)

I was similar to you in that food-wise nothing much needed to change ... just my old work lunch of cheese or ham roll with a cup-a-soup & packet of crisps had to go but I've managed that fine.

Over the weeks I have slowly got used to drinking less vino collapso and I have to say I feel better for it. My tum has deffo gone down and I'm sleeping better. :)

I think what you are doing (changing to Red) is a good thing. If you wanted to you could always throw in a couple of EE days too ... I've never eaten so much fruit!

Good luck x
Hi Ali

Losing the wine has been one of the hardest sacrifices I've had to make especially now when the weather is so lovely and the only thing that will really hit the spot is that lovely cold glass of wine......as you can see an addict through and through :eek:

Your right though I definately was sporting a fine vino belly cultivated over many hazy years :) and cutting down really reduced it so there is silver lining to this sad tale of loss.

Well done on your loss to keep it up and we will bear the sacrifice together :devilangel:
Had a good day on plan today hooray but i'm having to make two different meals for me and my OH as he works late which has meant I have done zero exercise!!!
