After weigh in last week I went home ready for the week ahead and hoping to get ever closer to my target this week. It’s only two weeks until my birthday now, and I really really want to hit target by then! It was going okay, until the end of the week when I felt a bit stressed and like many people, I eat rubbish when emotional or under stress. I just don’t care about the sabotage when I’m actually doing it, but I have mentioned previously that I always feel the guilt afterwards. So I still don’t know why I do it. I guess I just have an emotional relationship with food.
Anyway, it got to Sunday and I realised I needed to do something to try and pull it back, as I was seriously heading for a gain. I have done EESP days before, but I’m not that keen on them so I thought I would try something different. Something that I have never done since I joined Slimming World; I had ZERO syns each day, from Sunday up until weigh in on Tuesday evening! To be honest, it was quite easy. With fruit for breakfast, and salad or omelette & beans for lunch, it meant I could use my B choice for bars to snack on, along with speedy fruit. A syn free yogurt in the evening curbed the sweet craving.
Not so many meals posted on Instagram this week, but here are a couple:
I wasn’t very confident for weigh in this week. With three really bad meals under my belt, and some not so good snacks, I was worried! Though obviously I was hoping my syn free days might have helped. Stepping on the scales, they showed a maintain, so I was pleased! I had managed to pull it back.
I still have 3lb to target, and now only two weeks to get there before my 30th birthday. I can do this!
