My Slimming World Week 4

Hey Dawls ❀️

So I’m back to fill you in on how I got on with my week 4 on SW πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I have also been asked by a lot of you to post what I’ve been eating during the week to give you all an idea! So I’ve done just that.

Okay so since I’m weighing in now on Saturdays I have my treat that night and this week it sorta went into the whole of the Sunday too πŸ™ˆ To be honest now I didn’t binge or gorge myself but I did enjoy what I wanted which was some munchies like chocolate and taytos, non diet fizzy drinks and we went to nandos which I’ve been missing the most I have to admit! It was beyond delicious and I didnt syn anything for those two days break! Since we’re saving for a house myself and Philip have decided to totally cut back and reduce to just 2 take aways a month which is huge because we were have 2 or even more every single weekπŸ™ˆ!! And so nandos was our second take away for January πŸ™‚

Everything in moderation is always the jeyπŸ‘ŒπŸ» anyways so I kept a food diary from Monday-Friday so you could have an idea of what I was eating day to day on SW. I have it later out by the days and on each day I have Breakfast, Dinner and Snack wrote, I also wrote SP next to the last to days as those days were obviously while I was doing the stricter SP diet I was telling you about in my last post πŸ™‚ hope it helps and makes sense to you all❀️

In total this week I lost 1lb, my goal again was for a 4lb loss and I was disgusted to see I only lost a pound when I stepped on the scale but you no what? It’s still a loss and I’m still happy with it because I’m loosing πŸ™‚ I’ve also realised that if I want to have my two treat days some weeks then I’ll have to do more then 2 SP days to balance it outπŸ‘ŒπŸ» It’s all about learning what works best for your body and actually listening to it ❀️ In total I’ve now lost 8.5lbs which brings me to…. Yes Ive finally worked up the courage to share my actual weight with you all…. 207lbs! My goal weight overall is 165.5lbs so I’m trying my best to get there healthily and the right way! No more fad diets for me because they DO NOT WORK, in the long run they actually make you gain weight!

Im looking forward to sharing my next week with you all because this is really helping me along with my journey ❀️ And getting messages from you all giving me encouragement and praise and how I’m helping you just makes me so happy so thank you all ❀️❀️

Wishing you lots of Love, Peace & Laughter ,

My Slimming World Week 3

Week three done & dusted πŸ™‚ I must say I found it hard this week to stop picking on sweets like chocolate and crisps, especially at night! But I tried my best and so the last two days before my weigh in I stuck to the SP diet with slimming world. This basically is just when you only eat your free foods that have either S (speed) or P (protein) along with 1 HEA & 2 HEB and of course you still have 15 syns to use if you like πŸ™‚ they say to do the SP Diet once or twice a week if you feel you need a boost on your weight loss or if you’ve been bold and need to make up for it lol like me!

I’ve changed my weigh in day from Wednesday to Saturday because I’ve been thinking… When I weigh in on Saturday, if I want to have a treat or a drink atleast I can have it that night which is the weekend and I have the rest of the week then to do damage control lol and be good to reach my weekly goals πŸ™‚ so I weighed in Saturday gone and I was hoping to loose 4 pounds but I lost 3, which I’m happy with πŸ™‚ it’s one pound of my goal for the week but sure atleast I’m loosingπŸ‘ŒπŸ» My overall goal is to loose 50 pounds which I know sounds a lot but thats like my dream goal I guess you could call it, I might Aswel go hard or go home, that breaks down to 3 and a half stone! I’m currently down 7.5 pounds now so I have 42.5 pounds left to go!

Now for this weeks goal I’m aiming again for a 4 pound loss πŸ‘ŒπŸ» fingers crossed I make it this time!

Lots Of Love, Laughter & Peace ❀️,

My Slimming World week 2

image

So week one I got off to a great start and lost 3-1/2 pounds which I was thrilled with! I was so motivated by the loss and couldn’t wait to see more come off but just a few days later there was a huge tragedy in my family πŸ’” my 40 year old uncle Micheal suddenly died 😒

I have a young family and so we have never dealt with anything like this before. To say it hit us bad is an understatement and tbh were still not fully understanding or believing what’s actually happened! Of course I didn’t go back to SW and I wasn’t watching my food… I was then super busy with work because of Xmas and also crashed my new car 😑 Β and so just had no time at all to get back on my plan!

I went from the 8th of December until the 6th of January not watching my food properly or caring tbh so on the 7th I started again and fromΒ were I left of and weighed in on the wed 13th. To my suprise I was actually down 1 pound ! I was expecting to be totally over my initial weight from when I started! Hmmm it seemed to me I must have been subconsciously watching what sort of food in as eating without even knowing! Which is fantastic πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

So all in all from my two weeks of SW im down 4-1/2 pounds altogether! Im hoping for a bigger loss this week of 4 pound though! Ive also started to exercise since I don’t have a car atm I have no other choice which is great! My legs don’t know what’s hit them lol! If you find it hard to diet then I would recommend SW because it’s not a crash diet and honestly doesn’t even feel like a diet! It’s just about making healthier choices! Fingers crossed for that loss for Wednesday coming πŸ™ˆ!!

Lots of Love, Laughter & Peace

My Slimming World Week 1

Hey dawls πŸ™‚

So last week was my first week starting slimming world πŸ™‚ I went on the Wednesday and I was just back from Vegas the sat before! Before I went to Vegas I was like ‘Okay Im going to enjoy my holiday now, eat what I want and then when i get back I am joining slimming world’ and so I stuck to it πŸ™‚ I could have been rolled off the plane I ate so much over there but I enjoyed every minute of it!

I want to do a blog on my experience so hopefully it will help motivate others who felt like I did and need to get started! Its only been one week and so for that reason im obviously just still not comfortable telling EVERYONE my starting weight YET…. but I will I promise after a few weeks when I get rid of some lol! Lets just say for now that this is the heaviest I have EVER been and I am just completely allergic to how my body looks right now and the way I feel 😦 its not a nice feeling!

My slimming world plan was basically I could eat up to 15 syns everyday and foods such as eggs, lean meat and pasta are completely free so you can eat what you like of them. I found the plan really strange because i didn’t feel like I was actually on a diet because I wasn’t super restricted like all the other diets ive tried and FAILED! I think I stuck to the diet properly for 2-3 days at the most! I had four star, sausage rolls, jalapeno cheese bites, chips and rubbish lol but i didn’t over do them like I normally would! Yet when I went to get weighed in after the week I was down 3-1/2 pounds! I was delighted with myself and it made me want to do even better this time because I knew it was beyond do-able! I wasn’t even after exercising so I think there’s just so much room for improvement with this plan!

Now of course im not telling you to not stick to it 100%, im just trying to explain that usually if i break out then i totally give up on the whole diet… but the fact i knew i was gonna have to go back to the group to get weighed in, I just jumped back onto the bandwagon and was a lot better the day after to make up for it jano? Im hoping to stick with a 3 pound loss every week so far and to be honestΒ once im making a loss that’s all that matters because its a step in the right direction πŸ˜‰

If anyone is currently in slimming world that follows me or if your thinking of starting then add me on snapchat @Colliiiee so we can share some tips and food ideas to loose the pounds ❀ Ill be uploading about how my day went slimming world wise lol maybe it could help you too πŸ™‚

All My Love,
