A new plan for 2015?!

There have been some rather confident rumours circulating instagram about a new and exciting revamp of the Slimming World plan.

At first I was dubious, nervous even, but after giving it some thought I think that my tatty old book and relaxed habits could do with a bit of a kick up the proverbial bum.

Having said that I lost a whopping 2.5lbs on Wednesday (2lb of which I had gained the week before) and I am currently at my lowest weight since joining Slimming World- yippee!!

Hi-fi Bars

A new week commences today and although I gained 1.5lbs last night, I have still maintained my 1 stone total loss, which definitely softened the blow.

I thought I'd treat myself to some hi-fi bars (I was starving) so I opted for Rocky Road.
Read on for the verdict...

One meal at a time... a successful slimming world concept (draw a line dotcom)

So I drafted this post on 1st August which was around 13 weeks ago.

My "one meal at a time" spreadsheet came to fruition in June. I was not sticking to plan, I was not trying and I was miserable.

There are 21 meals in a week and I now take time to note how many of the 21 meals I have on plan. In June I was 9 stone 8lbs and at my last weigh in I was 8 stone 13.5lbs. I achieved my one stone award and my Club 10 award.

This method works for me.

If I have a mahoosive pizza on a Saturday night, I draw a line and have an on plan breakfast on Sunday morning. If I skip lunch that same Sunday, I make sure that dinner is on plan.

And so on.

It seems so simple but it works!! It rids me of the guilt for one.

On a good week I will have 18 meals on plan out of the 21 and lose 1-2lbs.
I'm more than ok with that.

Tuesday 14th * x *
Wednesday 15th * * ~ 18/21 8.13.5      -2lbs

For me, it makes this more of a lifestyle thing rather than a fad. I've been a member for over a year now and although I've "only" lost a stone, my relationship with food is better than its ever been.

Having said that...I have just had a weeks annual leave and about 10 days of pigging out, but only tonights weigh in can tell....
I'll draw a line and have a fabby on plan dinner tonight anyway.

*star* week - what does that mean to you?

TMI or not I hadn't had star week for every long time due to contraceptive hormones (the injection).

So a couple of weeks ago I experienced my first star week in maybe over a year.
There was chocolate devouring, tears and a mahoosive weight gain (+2lbs!!!)
I was hormonal so didn't stay to group but my consultant said on average the gain is 2lb-4lb when its "that time of the month".

Low and behold the following week I was down 2lbs. I wonder if this affects everyone...people at group don't seem that open about it.

A poor girl last week had gained 3lbs and was sobbing. It was her * week. She had been as good as gold. If she loses more than 3lbs tomorrow I will know that it was water weight like the consultant said.

I will definitely be keeping an eye on this. Not just for weight but to get to know how my own body works (cringe)- god I hate it when people talk like that!
But seriously, I'm 25 years old and should know that if I cry at Eastenders I'm probably due on...

Update:- * week girl lost a whopping 5lbs!!! Water weight it is.

Get back on that wagon!


So I took 3 weeks off of Slimming World. And I gorged. And I gained 2.5lbs. I know it could be worse. It could also be better.

In 8 months I have lost 7lbs.

In 8 months I have lost and kept off 7lbs
In another 8 months I could lose another 7lbs

I am back on it. Going to chill out about it. (Me and chilled do not belong in the same sentence).
I'm going to go slowly, take it easy. Enjoy my journey.
