Food Glorious Food! 

  So it’s now my third week on Slimming World and I think I have finally got the hang of eating lunch. Gone are the tiny soup portions and salad – yesterday I had chicken and chorizo pasta, today I have chicken curry with rice – all home made of course.  I don’t know how…

My cross-trainer has broken me!

Carole – meet everyone. Everyone – meet Carole. Carole is the pet name for my Cross Trainer – she is named after Carole from The Walking Dead because she is a badass and doesn’t take any sh*t! Originally she was going to be named after Carl, so that I could come home and ask my partner “Where’s Carl?!”…

Weigh Day: -4.5

 Sorry this post is a tad late, yesterday was manic and I didn’t find the time to write it!! Another successful week on fat club slimming world! This week actually went much better overall, my lunches were huge, dinner was bigger and still the scales moved. There is certainly something to say for this fat club slimming…

Still no goals! 

  So I have been thinking about goals to set myself. I never thought of myself as being a particularly unimaginative person but my failure in this area is forcing me to reconsider.  The issue is that I want to pick goals that are for me. If I start saying “when I get to x…

Weigh Day: -5 lbs

  So today was weigh day! As the title suggests I am now -5lbs. Hooray!! I think part of that is probably down to not really following the programme properly Monday-Wednesday and eating less than I should; from today I am resolved to eat more! I am pleased that it’s quite a substantial loss. With…

Patience and Unrealistic Expectations

   So a friend of mine from work has decided to join me on this Slimming World excitement! We have been texting each other meal ideas and calculating syns together and generally discussing the whole plan! Last night she sent me a message to say that she was enjoying the plan so far, my response…

Visualize you: I’d rather not!

  So  yesterday I was on the train home and reading the news app on my phone when one of the articles caught my eye! Apparently, some people had managed to design a clever app called “Visualize you” where you could add in a photo of yourself and it would work out how you would…

Why am I trying to lose half my body weight? 

Well. Firstly because half my body weight is the equivalent of an actual person. When you weigh as much as two people combined – I think you should probably do something about it! Secondly because I don’t want to die (maybe this should have been reason number one!). I have been aware for a while…

Slimming World and sore feet!

My first ever post. How exciting. I think we will leave the deep and meaningful and emotional stuff till tomorrow as it’s getting late and I have work tomorrow. Instead we shall just start with a brief description of the beginning of my weight loss journey! At 11:53pm yesterday I was sat on my kitchen…
