After last week’s weigh in and feeling like I was back in the zone, I was raring to go to get that 2lb loss to get into that next stone bracket. I was on it all week, though we did go out for a carvery on Sunday but I filled my plate with veg; a few syns were possibly used on gravy, and stuffing, and a Yorkshire pudding… oh. Oops! I kept my syns down after that though to try and balance it out.
I’ve been eating a lot more speed food again too though I’m not properly back on it with meal planning yet. I think after we come back from our holiday at the end of the month I will start with that again. I have still been keeping a food diary which does help with regards to tracking syns and how much speed food I am eating.
I’ve also still been posting my meals to Instagram – I was pretty astounded when a plate of ham, eggs, and veg received 80 likes!

Couldn't decide what I wanted for lunch today so had an #EESP platter… wafer thin smoked ham, cucumber sticks, carrot sticks, pickled onions, half HEA cheese, and some @crackineggco hard boiled eggs with salt & black pepper seasoning #review #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #sw #swuk #swfamily #swfriends #swmafia #swsupport #weightloss #weightlossjourney #swfood #synfree
I also posted for transformation Tuesday this week…

#transformationtuesday It's the fat jeans again, sorry! 🙈 I still can't believe they are this big now; the photo on the left is from 7 years ago, and at the time I thought I would be wearing those forever. But those jeans, were stopping me from conceiving and having my beautiful babies and one random day, I just thought, "No, this is time – I can't be that person anymore." – I lost 3.5 stone purely calorie counting before falling pregnant 2 years later but put most back on during my 2 pregnancies. I couldn't seem to shift the weight again on my own after my youngest was born 2 years ago, I had no motivation, and so I took the plunge and joined @SlimmingWorld 8in January last year (I was almost able to fit in these jeans again at that point). Since then I am just over 3st lighter and almost at my target. Any day can be YOUR day, it doesn't matter how long the journey takes; heck, 7 years later I am still on it! Once I reach my destination, I don't plan on turning back. I'm going to print this photo and put it on my fridge to help me bounce back on those bumpy days. YOU GOT THIS!
So on to weigh in. After a (mostly) good week, I was feeling pretty confident of a loss, though I wasn’t expecting that I would actually get the 2lb I wanted as I very rarely lose that much in a week, but as usual I would have been happy with anything really. So when I stepped on the scales to see I had a 0.5lb gain, I was actually pretty gutted and grumpy as I thought I had it in the bag and couldn’t think where it may have come from. And then when I left group, I remembered… We went to a friend’s on Wednesday and I lost my willpower around cake, and ate far too much… I am so annoyed with myself as I only have myself to blame!
We are out for a review meal on Saturday evening but I will keep my syns down a little during the week, and afterwards will do EESP before weigh in on Tuesday as it is the last one before we go away.
