    HI GUYS!!!!

    So I have nooo idea what I'm doing, or if I'm doing this right?
    I have managed to get a hold of my old account and reading some of my posts from 2013, crazy stuff!

    Anyway, When I last posted I had moved out of my Bf's mums into our own place.. we are still living on our own!(Yay) and I obviously thought not living with the mother in law was going to make me lose weight, Ha yeah right. I think.. I can't actually remember how much I'd lost .. maybe not a lot and gave up like usual... HOWEVER...

    Jan 2015 I started Weightwatchers, I had a whole new approach really thought I can do this and I to date have managed to lose 43 and a half Pounds! GO ME!! ... It was not easy at all, I have looked at it as a complete life style change rather than a "diet" and I've just kept it too myself, yano doing my thing! .. not making a big fuss, which I've found even better because I've not had everyone going... " can you eat that? " "are you allowed that?" ( my pet peev's) Anywho.. I have came to my weightwatchers end of an era, I feel I need a change and I had literally only just got on top of the Propoints plan, for it to all be changed!BOO!!

    Therefore ... I am jumping back on the slimming world band wagon with my Mumma:p

    I havn't signed up yet, I'm hoping to get to a class Tuesday Am, I have completely been in limbo the past 2/3 weeks because of Christmas, blahblahblah! so yea! I'm hoping to blog every other day on here, and check out my instagram account which is an amazing way of inspiration etc etc its (for now) I will post my instagram username below..

    Aloha!

    Soooo, Monday I had all good intention to get back on track, but I suppose I didn't give it much thought for how it would plan out? 15 hour shift sunday... Night shifts Mon - Thurs... a weekend away and off work! :eek: you catching what I'm throwing?
    I suppose ultimately it comes down to, mom and dad still had cinnamon bun from Costco that I'd brought for a buffet & didn't get round it eating a slice... :eating:

    I did notice I made a small change... I stopped eating the chocolates and biscuits .. and have focused my attention on my IG account and followers, coming away from WW and looking at all the slimming world ladies that I had no reason to before and reminding myself why I love slimming world, and although I've been doing WW and it also worked for me, In the past I'd speak about both the plans and what I loved about each one!
    I can't begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to a Healthy, easy, simple grill up and not having to weigh and point every little bite! :woohoo:

    My normal weigh in at WW the past year has been 9.30am on a Tuesday morning, so I'm going to a class at SW same time and day, Hell yea I like my routines & hate change. Because my mum is "joining" with me, hopefully I wont have to alter between Mon,Tues & Weds to much because of her shift work, We shall see how we go.
    The only thing I am feeling a little ... uneasy about and this might sound strange but, If I could afford to do Weightwatchers and Slimming world at the same time ... then I probs would .... I love my WW leader and think he's great, and I have most of the time stayed to the meetings because it's quick and not too intense. I already know I don't plan on staying for the meetings after weigh in at SW ... because I find it too much of a commitment of time, to listen about debates etc etc..... How do you all feel about this? And I am a little worried that, not staying to the class I won't take it seriously, or not be recognised bye others for my achievement and maybe I need that support, I don't know, it's just niggling at me! Advice would be great.

    Have a happy Friday, & hopefully I can catch up with you all over the weekend

    Helloooo, super quick update because I didn't get chance to post yesterday, and I probs won't tomorrow either due to work, and trying to be organised! Time goes way to quickly ( and I don't even have kids to sort out either!)

    I signed up this morning with my mum... the Christmas damage was, most certainly damaging! just goes to show you can put on so much in a few week's, and see it take even more weeks to get rid of it.
    Anyway onwards and upward's, I've struggled today with craving and wanting all things BAD! maybe it hasn't been the most ideal start but tomorrow WILL be better!

    Hope everyone has a good week and I shall be back Thursday.

    Evening all. Finally got some free time to get on the laptop, been a busy week!

    I appear to be on track so far, tonight's the first time I've been around takeaway, I had a Turkish, which I will syn as 3 but I will have to go and speak to the owners to see if they use any oils on the meat, As far as i'm aware the chicken/lamb is on skewers slowly cooked over hot coals, and you get a lovely pickly salad and just plain white rice.. It's so freshing and yummy! (although so much more expensive then just a chippy. :()

    This weekend is my weekend on at work, I have tuna pasta salad to take, and will try keep myself busy! As it can get quiet, boring which means snacking.

    Looking forward to my first weigh in, although I don't feel any better at all! maybe more exercise is needed.

    I have seen lots of recipes for different snacks and meals that I look forward to making. Need to make a list and plan,plan,plan,plan!

    Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

    I no!! Super lucky, its literally round the corner, and it's like nothing I've ever tasted before!

    From the Chinese I normally have the roast pork Chinese style, it's roast pork on a bed of bean sprouts with a sauce bbqish gravy.. If I asked for the sauce separate, and a portion of boiled rice, basically it would be free. what do you reckon?

    Depends whether they stir fry beam sprouts in oil or steam them.

    Morning Peeps,

    So I had my first weigh in Tuesday, It went better then I imagined!!!!
    Mainly because during the week i'd stood on my scales 3 times and wasn't impressed in the slightest! However I got my 1/2 stone award! WAHEYY!

    I wasn't over keen on the group I don't think... or the leader :cool: Kills me to say that! I kinda get a .. can't really explain it, but I will continue to see how I get on. ( I miss my WW leader :(:(:(:(:(:()

    Tonight I have made one of my all time favourite recipes... MEAT LOAF! I like this hot or cold, and think its so easy to make you can pretty much use the same bulk load of recipes for burgers too.. the recipe it's self is a 4 serving, at 1/2 syn each.

    Still enjoying my Instagram account and looking for all new bits and bobs, it's amazing just how influential social media really can be, and it's nice to see it in a positive light, unlike the usual negativity it causes.

    I shall keep you updated when I can, I have tonight and two more nights then i'm done for my weekend off with the other half. So far we have planned a nice long stroll Saturday afternoon, followed bye a visit from family which will include a take away, So it will be a toss up between Chinese and of course my beloved Turkish take out!
    Sunday, a lay in followed bye a Grill up for brunch, then who knows! Maybe a pj day and come batch cooking.

    Anywho,
    Over & Out

    Soo,

    Week 1 : Lost 7lbs

    Week 2 : + 0.5lb ?? WAHHH :confused:

    Week 3 : Lost 2lbs

    Really enjoying it all still at the minute. I'm investing more time and effort into the planning, meal prepping as well as trying to find alternatives for extra easy, and quick meals when we ae busy bee's.

    The last week or two I've been feeling SUPERRR emotional, like literally I think I had a mini melt down too the other half, Since my mini melt down I do feel much better for getting it off my chest but I still don't feel like i'm doing anything grand in my life. Its a strange feeling, not one I've had before. I will try explain it in some more deal, Okay... (this is going to be emotionally difficult) Since I was at school I always knew I wouldn't go to college or uni .. I was never super academic but I put that down to being easily distracted and I'm the wrong crowd.:rolleyes: My parents I think also knew this, and encouraged me to get a job doing something I could progress in .. I went in to office work, but was made redundant ... then I was working but went wild for a couple of years (still not having a clue what I wanted to do) then I met my Other half whilst doing support work for people with disabilities ... So I had purposely gone into this kind of sector it was what I wanted to do, help others etc etc... I worked my way up within 3 years and then about a year and half ago I stepped down for several reasons .....
    1: I had no support from anyone what so ever! (management)
    and
    2: The on call was horrendous I used to have nightmares about the ringtone.
    Now I still have a few extra responsibilities but I want to better myself and still have no idea what I want to do with my LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am super hard working and I no what ever I do, i'd be great at but I cant just rock up to an interview and be like ... I am a good employee!

    I enjoy my shift pattern because I work every other weekend but finish at 14.30 so I still get a nice evening with the OH, I get days off in the week to see my friends who all have kids (apart from me) and enjoy being able to socialise in that way. I worry if I got a office job 9-5 I'd have no life.. My friends all use the weekends to spend with their families and kiddies, Once you get home and do dinner etc, what time is left to see anyone or do anything?

    I hate change and i'm first to admit that I am not open to change AT ALL... but we are trying too save for a house and I would like a career I can work my way up, earn good money and have a nice house.

    Sorry for ranting and going completely off track, I don't even think i'm bothered if anyone reads this I just need to get it off my brain because its causing me distress and any any anyyyyyyyy advice would be so welcome!!


    I'll just leave it at that for now.

    Have a lovely weekend
