Treat Meals, Smaller Losses & Losing Steadily

Posted in Food & Recipes by

Week 69 Statistics

Weigh in result: maintain

New weight: 11st 8.5lbs

Total loss so far: – 3st 3.5lbs

I didn’t lose any weight this week, but as long as I didn’t put anything on, I’m still pretty proud of myself – and I’m still the slimmest I’ve ever been in my life!

I think this is the perfect opportunity to talk about the way I fit Slimming World around my life as a 24 year old who loves to socialise. Particularly when it involve copious amounts of food and alcohol. Part of the reason I stopped attending group was due to the constant pressure to lose as much weight as possible every week, and to feel guilty about giving yourself a ‘cheat’ (I prefer ‘treat’) day or even a meal. Personally, I think that as long as you’re happy with losing a little less every week, a treat every now and again does you the world of good.

I have been following the plan for about a year and a half now, and there’s no way I could stick to it without my treat meals and nights out. I don’t see it as a diet, I see it as a lifestyle change, and believe it or not life doesn’t always want me to stick to plan. I was never going to be one of those (admittedly incredible) people who lose 8 or 10 stone in a year, but I’m happy with my 3.5 stone in 1.5 years; and as long as I’m going down rather than up, I think I’m doing okay.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, so feel free to leave a little comment below!

Weekly Meal Plan

So half of this has already happened because I’m posting later than usual (I am meant to update you every Sunday, but I was massively hungover this week. Not sorry.)

If you want to keep a closer eye on me (and all the tasty food I eat), you can follow my live updates on Instagram!

Saturday

  • Breakfast: Syn free full English (hexb toast, scrambled egg, beans, bacon, Linda McCartney rosemary and red onion sausages & mushrooms)
  • Lunch: We were running around everywhere, so grabbed an (off plan) sandwich from Asda. Plus some mini cheddars and a diet coke (obviously).
  • Dinner: We went to Prezzo in Lewes which was lovely! I had chicken with leeks and mushrooms (speed?) in a gorgonzola sauce with chips. Followed by wine and a LOT of vodka. Safe to say this was something of a treat day!

Sunday

  • Brunch: We went to a little cafe in Brighton, and I tried to choose wisely – 2 poached eggs on granary bread with smoked salmon.
  • Dinner: Syn free sausages, mash, green beans and 2.5 syns of gravy

    Well done and love your positivity. It took me 2yrs to lose 2.5st and get to target but I like you did it in my own time, little by little chipping away and eventually got to target this January. Good luck with your journey I like to call it taking the scenic route.

      Thank you so much lovely, I’m so glad it isn’t just me! I understand that for some people you have to go hard or go home, but I find this gives me a healthier outlook on food and life as a result. Well done on your fantastic weight loss and for reaching target!!! Xxx
