Hi all..!

I'm new here. Had much previous success with slimming world before baby *cough* now toddler *cough* But after faffing around for almost two years now I can't find anything that works for me and my ultra busy life. I find work very tough (60 hour weeks with lots of access to food, but very busy and with a toddler coming with me) I snack on crap rather than eat proper meals because I never know if i'll be home in time or if i'll get a proper lunch. This i want to fix anyways, but I needed a plan that wouldn't mean my day goes to pot if i get stuck at a soft play and can only get a panini!

Anyways, i found ww online.. (I just can't commit to one group and don't want to flit between lots and weigh on different days) but i desperately need regular community support.. so here i am!

I'm a weight watchers virgin and as most newbies I have 'the fear'.. i don't know if I'm doing it right and just hope my online tracker is tracking properly and I'm not miscalculating things etc!!

I'm on 29 daily pp with the usual 49 weeklies.

I'm eloping soon.. sometime in december or January. I have a stunning dress but its currently ordered in a size 18, sob. Not the size 10 dresses i was trying on before my little one. I want to loose three stone, and hopefully keep it off during my next pregnancy sometime in the future, but right now my main focus is to make as big of a dent in that number as possible before I get wed.

realistically I have anywhere between 10-15 weeks to loose it dependent on when the big day falls.

I'd like atleast 1.5stone off, but I know this is a BIG goal and possibly unrealistic. (especially if i'm not doing it right haha!)

I'll post the last few days diaries as per my online ww tracker and hopefully someone can help. ..

Knowledge is Power....if you know what you weigh then you can be the change that you want :) Plus a lot can happen between then and now! X

Really appreciate your support btw.. I need it!

Im struggling to get me head around the fact I can eat whatever I want aslong ad I point and track it. It's slotting into life soo easy. I work 60 hr weeks and have my little girl also.. my days are long and unpredictable. Ive managed to share a Brownie with my fiancé yesterday and s cookie with my girl today (special trips) and don't feel the day is ruined or guilty. but struggle to believe that I'll loose weight like this. im a big believer in lots of exercise and clean eating but I cant fit that lifestyle in right now despite numerous attempts. I hope this is what I need right now. x

That's the beauty of WW :) I spend 5pp on a Full Size Chocolate Bar every single night, what other diet could I do that on?!? I've enjoyed Dominos, Chinese, Chippy, Greggs etc since starting WW! Life is for living and our diet should fit around our life not the other way around! X

I think a stone would be reasonable in 8wks? WW recommend between 1-2lb per week so that would be in fitting with that. X

Yesterday:
I made porridge, but took a few spoonfulls and decided i didn't want/like it.. so counted 2pp

sandwhich- 2 slices seeds sensation bread- 6pp, cheese 3pp, honey and mustard dressing 2pp, had half a milyway crisp roll thing, (1 roll) 3pp? and half a big cookie 6pp

dinner was a breaded haddock fillet from lidl 7pp via calculator, loads of 0pp salad, 2 fox's vieneese bicky 5pp and a few oven chips 5pp

39 pps used (29 daily 10weeklies)


Today,

30 day shred to start the day ..
had 1 1/2 scrambled eggs (shared with the munchkin) 6 pp on one slice of bread with 1 tsp butter

breaded haddock 7pp salad

well.. then my friends came for the afternoon and i made chocolate banana cake. recipe builders puts it at around 10pp if it served 12, which i think it did.. but i think i ate alot. so i've wiped my remaining weeklies off and will be having strictly 29 until WI



hmm. Making me realise how much snacky chocolate i eat.

Its pay day friday and I cant wait to go shopping, just did a tonne of recipe building online to prepare. Its been a weird week... what with not having done a fresh shop (we go monthly and get fresh veg and fruit weekly) so i've been using what we have, amazingly pointing okay, so hoping for some loss.. but not as veg and fruit laden as i like my diet to be.. fresh fish etc.

deciding to weigh in fridays.. eep.

Hey Sweetie! That was quite a post! Your food choices sound fine, you're making a good use of your points and a few of us have a saying on here 'More IS MORE' so hopefully that will pay off for you. Chocolate Banana Cake sounds amazing! I'm quite Snacky too but only in the Evenings, I always save 5pp for a Full Size Chocolate Bar, tonight it was a Galaxy Ripple, it gets me through the day knowing I can have that! X

Looking good so far!

A little trick when having a baked potato is to weigh it AFTER you've cooked it- it always weighs less than raw.
