Week 12……

So I’m now 3 months in on this weight loss thing……last week I lost 3.5lb and got Slimmer of the Week (another shiny sticker)! That’s 1st 5.5lb off in total, 1.5lb to go to my 1.5st off, and my 10% off!

Have got a wedding next weekend.  The dress I was planning to wear is now too big…..I gutted!! Now on the hunt for something to wear….struggling to work out what size I want and what style I need. It’s not helpful that whatever I buy won’t (hopefully)be much good come Christmas. 

Saturday: Morning oats in yogurt for breakfast with blueberries, peach and nectarine. Lunch was scrambled eggs with spaghetti rings in tomatoe sauce and an apple. For Dinner we had chinese….second week in a row….not so good. A lot of syns.

Sunday: Brunch was leftover chinese 🤔. Some fruit. Dinner was roast chicken and veg (about 2 syns) but dessert was treacle tart and custard…..mmmmm….. Lots and lots of syns! 🙁

Monday: Weetabix for breakfast. Chicken salad for lunch. Plenty of fruit. SlimmingWorld Spaghetti Bolognaise for dinner, with a little bit of cheese and a tiny piece of garlic bread.  Around 5syns today.

Tuesday: Overnight oats in yogurt with blueberries for breakfast. Fruit, lots of! Leftover Spaghetti Bolognaise for lunch, with cheese – my Healthy Extra.  For dinner it’s SlimmingWorld chips, baked beans and Chicken Kiev, and a fresh cream cake… would’ve gone out of date if I hadn’t. 😕. About 17syns today.

Wednesday: Overnight oats in yogurt with blueberries for breakfast. Salad for lunch, with a couple or four dark chocolate digestive thins. Spaghetti Carbonara for dinner with a little bit of garlic bread.

Friday: Overnight oats in yogurt with blueberries for breakfast. Scrambled eggs and baked beans for lunch. Lots of fruit. An Alpen bar…needed a chocolate hit! Fish and chip van cod, with batter removed and mushy peas for dinner. 3syns today. 

I really want those two shiny stickers……the 1.5stone off one and the 10% off one (this is the 1st target)…….  Then in theory I have 3st to go.  I’m not sure I want to go that far, maybe 1st or 1.5st more off, I have clothes I want to fit in, so we will see……especially after syns that have passed my lips this week!!!

Week 11…..:

So maintained this week……gotta be really good this week. I want that next shiny sticker. No birthday parties to jeopardise this one!

Saturday: Weetabix for breakfast. Lunch was boiled eggs and chicken. Dinner it went wrong……we had chinese….was lovely…..must be good tomorrow after breakfast. Too many syns today.

Wednesday: Weetabix for breakfast. The inevitable fruit.  SlimmingWorld Creamy Ham & Mushroom Farfalle for lunch, this was really nice, not spicy as most SlimmingWorld meals seem to be.  So up to that point, I was really really good……Then it all went wrong!  Due to a last minute change of plans, the planned Waitrose Chicken Kiev (10.5 syns), baked beans and SlimmingWorld Chips, went out of the window.  By the time we got to eat, it was too late to start cooking, so we ended up in Pizza Hut….I was good and had salad, maybe shouldn’t have had the drizzle of garlic mayo, but was also very naughty, and had Hawaiian Pizza with sweetcorn (not sure what happened to the pineapple though!) Too many syns today.

It’s not looking good for Saturday weigh in…….

Thursday: Weetabix for breakfast.  Obviously fruit.  A couple of boiled eggs in the morning as a snack. Salad for lunch and for dinner we had vegetable soup with dumplings. Around 6 syns today.

Dinner was chicken pasta with mushrooms, onions and garlic, the chew on this was my Healthy Extra for the day! . I also gave in to the Cadbury’s Fudge that kept looking at me! 5.5syns today. 

I’m not expecting miracles tomorrow at weigh in after the rubbish I’ve eaten, but I can hope…….

Sooo…..this week I lost 2lb…….happy with that especially after last week! I still blame the full length jeans!!

Saturday: A good start, scambled eggs with baked beans for breakfast.  Then it went wrong for the weekend…..we had a 1st Birthday Party to go to….iut would have been rude not to eat the food supplied…..I did take the skin off of the chicken and had some salad, but it was the pork pie, cocktail sausages, little slices of pizza, coleslaw, potato salad………  In the evening I was good, chip shop fish with batter removed and mushy peas!  Too many syns…..

Sunday: Cod roe for breakfast, Healthy extra bread with it – a couple of syns for the oil and flour.  Then it went wrong again, the friend who held the party Saturday needed some emergency help……ended up eating a couple or five mini sausage rolls and a slice of birthday cake, once the emergency was sorted.  Road pork and veg for dinner, and yogurt for desert.  Some fruit today!  Not as many sys as yesterday, but still too many!!!!

I have a grumpy MIL at the mo, she gained 1/2lb last week.  She seems to be losing her motivation.  I’m trying to help, but……  It’s her birthday in a couple of weeks, so my plan is to buy her incentive clothes, just the one size smaller than she is, but something to help her.

Week 9…..

Hmmmm…….1lb on this week…..oh well, onto a new week! According to my club rep, I’ve got a good positive attitude towards it all regardless. As far as I’m concerned I’m surprised it hasn’t happened before!!   I blame the fact that I’m now wearing full length not 3/4 length jeans and socks!! 🤣

I’ve had to resort to sweetners in my tea…..have really been struggling without having sugar…..

Week 8……

Soooo……..after a roller coaster week last week, I really struggled with the lack of biscuits and chocolate…..I lost 2lb! That’s 1st 1lb loss so far after 7 weeks! 😃  I got a nice shiny sticker to say I’ve lost 1stone!!

Saturday: Morning oats with blueberries today for breakfast. Lunch was scrambled eggs baked beans and ham. Some fruit today, but not much. It all went horribly wrong this evening….went to an all you can eat buffet.  It was a spur of the moment thing, we were out and needed food, and for £15.99, I wasn’t only going to eat what little salad and fruit they had, no excuses, but it was lovely! Millions of syns!

Sunday: Cod Roe for brunch with a slice of bread…after last night I didn’t worry too much about syns.  I had some fruit during the day, but not much.  Roast beef for dinner, with cheesecake for desert!  About 20 syns today 😦

Going to try and be really good the rest of this week…….

Monday: Weetabix for breakfast (the Healthy Extra). Loads of fruit.  Chicken Salad for lunch.  Off to see Marti Pellow this evening……dinner was another disaster…..after taking a long detour to the concert, we arrived to find there was no real food, so dinner was a packet of crisps and a triple chocolate cookie……about 30 syns today!

Saturdays class theme was reasons not excuses……..

Tuesday: Shredded wheat for breakfast.  A lot of fruit, and a couple of boiled eggs in between.  Chicken salad for lunch. Slimmingworld Spag Bol for dinner, with a tiny piece of Garlic bread.  Probably about 1 syn today with the garlic bread!

Wednesday: Overnight oats for breakfast, with the usual loads of fruit in between.  Left over Spag Bol for lunch (tasted quite good reheated.).  Local butcher slimmer sausages with SlimmingWorld chips eggs and beans for dinner.  2 syns today.

Thursday:  Weeabix for breakfast.  Feel really hungry this morning, eaten most of my fruit already….banana, apple, nectarine, grapes a plum, pear…’s only 11.30am.  Only got my salad with left over sausages from last night and a clementine left……might have to give in to the HiFi bar……will try not too!!! Well I gave in😳…..I had the mint HiFi bar…….it tasted soooo good!! Dinner was SlimmingWorld chicken nuggets and jacket spud with cheese (healthy extra) and baked beans. 6 syns today. 

Friday: Scrambled eggs with cheese and baked beans for breakfast. Since then it’s been not so good. A mint and a double choc HiFi bars (healthy extras!), some fruit, and tomatoes for lunch…… For dinner we had McDonalds, the bf ordered the wrong salad, so I had crispy chicken rather than grilled…oops…..!!

This week hasn’t been great so not expecting to have lost this week… I plan to wear full length jeans rather than 3/4 length, I wonder how much they add……

Slimming World


I’m wondering if I should get the scales out to see how much heavier a full length pair of jeans are compared to 3/4 length……

I’m off to SlimmingWorld tomorrow morning, and it’s too cold to persevere with bare legs…. .however little is on show!! 

Then there’s the question of how much do socks weigh?

What about wearing long sleeved tops?

How much will a jacket or jumper weigh?

Will these items of clothing hinder my efforts?

Hmmmm…….now if I don’t lose weight this week…..can I use the excuse of longer jeans……
