It’s fair to say that I have struggled a little over the last couple of weeks, 1/2lb off one week, back on the next. This could be for a number of reasons but mainly through bad food choices.
I was a little disappointed but battled on and stayed to group each week which has been really helpful. The group is always full of friendly faces, offering advice and ideas and to help pick you up when you’ve taken a slight detour on your weight loss journey.Read More »
There is nothing better to break up a mornings work than a nice cup of coffee and a treat, Slimming World style obviously.
I personally love all the Slimming World hifi bars and until now I was torn between the lemon meringue and double chocolate as my favourite …that was until this week and the reappearance of an old flavour …Choc Orange!! Just as good as before (if not better) but now in the form of a light version at only 3 syns per bar!!
Last week was a little disappointing on the weight loss front …I had started snacking between meals which is something I don’t normally do. Well, it told on the scales with a 1lb gain …1lb is nothing I know but it was still a small step in the wrong direction.Read More »
Seeing that this is my first post I will tell you a little bit about me and why I am on my journey to become a slimmer, healthier version of myself.
I have pretty much always been on the large side, ever since childhood. I was teased and picked on at times during my school life because of my weight which led to a lack in confidence. After leaving school I enrolled into college which as well as studying, involved a lot of socialising with new friends.
Still suffering from a lack in confidence I decided to take my weight issues into my own hands and did something that I am not proud of and until now have never told anybody about. I thought at the time that if I didn’t eat or had no food in my body then I couldn’t put on any more weight so ….with that in mind I would have a bowl of cereal for breakfast and then that would be it, my intake for the day. After my evening meal or the odd occasion when I had eaten something during the day I would quietly disappear to the bathroom where I would stick my fingers down my throat and make myself sick. As I said I am not at all proud of this and looking back now it was a silly decision and one that was not good for my health.Read More »
