week 5 and still slowwwwww progress


Well i have decide to start a SW diary just a little history
I was on CD back in apri/may 2010 and was doing well however i started to have panic attacks and was feeling awful i dont know if it had anything to do with cambridge but i decided TFR were not for me.
i Went to the doctors and was on anti depressents and had some cognitive therapy and felt 100 times better.
Anyhow started SW back in july and was doing really well up until october (lost 15lbs) but i came off my anti depressents and became unwell again.
Sooooo got myself sorted over christmas and i am feeling 100% better:D:D

So back to SW on the 5th of jan.
I lost 3lbs my first week which i was delighted with especially being stuffed with all kinds of lovely food.

I have no issues with CD but for me i will never attempt it again.

Loving SW and have made 10 gorgeous recipes so far. Going to have my food diary in here aswell. So yesterday i had

B- fruit with muller light
L- tuna salad
d- i had chicken in breadcrumbs with parmasen cheese baked potatoe and veg

snacks- couple of crab sticks and bag of popcorn

Anyway hope to speak to you all andbest of luck with your weight loss journey xxxxxxxxxx

welcome to this forum it's a great place for support and encouragement

I did cambridge diet years ago and lost 60lbs really quickly, problem was within four months of coming off it I was back up to my original weight. Slimming world has been a revelation for me - just being able to eat normal food and still lose weight is the best thing. I feel much much healthier following slimmingworld than I ever did on Cambridge. I'm sure you can stick to it to goal just keep planning and tracking what you eat and if you have a bit of a blip don't give up just come back on here and someone will give you the shove in the right direction we all need sometimes.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll do well xx
thanks nettyneil i really dont feel like i am on a diet which is great where as with CD thats all i ever thought about lol;)

Anyway all good today had my dinner early at 5pm so just had some crab sticks i love them they are only 19cal which is great.
I am going to go to bed early tonightas i am knackered hope to update soon

L- no lunch as i had a late brekkie

D-beef teryaki with basmati rice

i didnt eat an awful lot of my dinner as i made the beef and also made a chicken stew for my 2 sons so i just wasnt very hungry after all the cooking not complaining though ha ha

horrible wet and windy day here today.
i am doing my food shop today so i am going to plan out my meals for the week.
I think it is so important to know what you are going to eat each day as i fall off the wagon when i miss meals or not have the right food in the house.
I am going to do a big spring clean of the house today also and get the kids uniforms etc sorted for the week.
My weigh in days are wednesday but i did have a quick jump on the scales and it looks like i could be down another 3lbs this week so i have to stay focused for the next few days.
My hubby bought the kinnect at christmas with the actifit so i need to start doing that a few times a week may start this evening.

B- poached eggs
L- fruit and muller light
D-steak baked potatoe and veg

low fat crisps

Oh i made the sw crisps last night and they were yum here is the method if anyone wants to try them

slice your potatoe very thinly and on a plate cover with frylight and some salt place your crisps on the plate and spray some more frylight throw into the microwave for 8 mins and there you have yummy crisps SW style:D

morning well i am only up my lovely hubby let me have a lie in till 12pm ;)
here with my 4 year old watching ice age and hubby and 7year old are gone off to watch a match.
I know this is a slower progress then CD but i am so much happier being on SW and i can really see this being the way i eat from now on.

Just all the small changes cooking in frylight and not oil, diet drinks instead of full fat,skimmed milk instead of full fat, low fat cheese and yougurts etc i think they are making all the difference without any difference to taste if you know what i mean:D

the weeks are flying in and only 3 days to my 3rd weigh in.

I have the most gorgeous pair of lack skinny jeans in a size 14 that i used to wear and when i tried them on at christmas they wouldnt even go past my thighs so they are my incentive to get this weight off for once and for all.

B-Wont have a brekkie as i got up so late
L-scrambled egg 2 slices of wholemeal toast

D-2 baked potatoes with baked beans (forgot how that was)

6 haribo sweets yummy

2l water
2 coffees

did very well with my water intake today
