Woohooo, a new PB

April 30, 2013

Not, exactly me, but you get what I mean. Down from a UK size 20 2 years ago to a 16 now.

I can’t remember if I posted this or not, but a couple of weeks ago I joined slimming world.  The intention was to combat the 4lbs I gained after eating everything that wasn’t nailed down when the BF and I split up.

I’ve never been particularly convinced about diets, specifically my ability to stick to them and their long-term effectiveness.  I tend to view them as ‘Die with a T on the end’.  I’ve always found the idea of a healthy eating plan a bit more tolerable and this seemed to fit the bill.

So, I got with the programme and gave it a go.  I was frankly amazed that I lost 2.5lb the first week as I felt like I had been stuffing myself silly.  The meals I cooked were really filling and I ate more fruit than I’ve had in ages, I’m even able to work goodies into the plan without guilt (major bonus). But there was this niggling doubt in my head that week 1 was a fluke and that I was just losing water etc.

Moving on to week 2, I did exactly as I had with the first week and tried some new recipes (all surprisingly yummy).  I thought I was doing OK until the weekend when I had a friends 40th Birthday party and Sunday dinner with my parents to contend with.  There was alcohol, pancakes and maple syrup, choccy cake and other goodies to contend with and I was just hoping that my weight would have remained the same for the week.  Got on the scales today and I’ve lost another 2.5lb :-).  God only knows how considering I’m still not doing an exercise with the knee in the shape its in!

That said I am not complaining as I’m now down to 184lb, which is a new PB in my quest to lose weight #chuffedtobits.  Technically, I’m still 6lb away from the weight I wanted for the photoshoot, but I think I’ll be close by the time that comes round.

Now to find myself a sweet little reward, I deserve it 🙂

    Curly wurlies are your friend for a low syn chocolate fix, and put them in the fridge and they last longer (and added bonus of jaw ache, so you physically struggle to eat more after them!). Well done 🙂 You are rocking this!
