So after going it alone since 1st January and achieving a successful 5lb loss in those two weeks, I decided to join my local Slimming World group. Why did I do this?
I actually joined for a number of reasons.
1. To find a healthy balance – I’d basically lost weight through starvation, lots of coffee and then binging on crisps.
2 . I was bored of eating rice!
3. I wanted to be accountable for my weight loss target – nothing says it better than being ‘fat shamed’ by publicly stepping on the scales each week.
4. To gain access to a whole world of delicious recipes.
5. To track my meals (and my syns) using the ‘Weight Loss Planner’
I’ve joined the 9.30am group on a Friday and I’ve set my initial weight-loss target to lose 7.5lbs. I have set up a dedicated Instagram page where I post my daily meals (cheat days included!) and will report back on my weekly weight loss.
Week 1 weigh in result: -3lbs.
Here’s a snap shot of some of my week’s meals…
Slimming World Loaded Wedges.
Diet Coke Chicken and Rice
Pasta packed with speed food and a sprinkle of cheese.
You can see the rest of my meals over on my ProseccoMumSlims Instagram!
