Just thought I’d write a very quick update on how Slimming World is going. I’ve been finding it pretty easy to get my head around as it goes. Apart from the one slip up I wrote about a few weeks ago (you know, the situation with the cream!) I’ve been finding it pretty easy to figure it all out and make it fit round our lives.
As it turned out “Cream Week” turned out to be my best week so far. I lost 3.5lb and got Slimmer of the Week. I wouldn’t advocate cream as a health food, but it didn’t derail me this time (phew!) and it taught me some valuable lessons about forward planning etc.
So as it stands, after 5 weigh ins I have lost 12.5lb. I have another 1.5lb to get my first stone award and I am ALLLLLL over that shiz (as the young people say – apparently).
The friend I go to Slimming World with, also has 1.5lb to lose, but this will get her to her 2 stone award. She’s doing so well and last week won the nominations for our group’s ” Woman of the Year” Award (and yes, before you ask, there is a “Man of the Year” too – although as we only have one guy in our group, that I know of, I think he’s pretty much a shoo-in!). I really hope this has spurred her on and can’t wait for us both to get our respective stone awards together next week!
I am definitely starting to feel better in my clothes. Not enough to rush out and buy smaller sizes yet, but baby steps!
Oscar is also in love with vegetables and his new favourite food in the world are baby corgettes.
So it’s having a pretty positive impact either way.
I do have some challenges up ahead. My Grandmother in law’s 80th birthday Tea is next week, But if I stay focussed and stay away from the cream, I reckon I can handle it. I’ll let you know!
