HAYYY YOU GUIIIIIIISE – I DID IT! I lost 3lbs this week to get to my first half a stone and just 2 weeks in! Now, I do have a lot to lose (well, a few stone) but I am so so so so CHUFFED!
I got my nifty little sticker and they asked if I wanted a certificate and of course I was all HELLL YEAH! I want to document my achievements so that it spurs me on! If I get to 1stone lost I get a present (not from Slimming World, obvs) – so that is motivation in itself! Well that and you know, being healthy and shit.
Apparently I have lost the equivalent of 30 sticks of butter, I did say I wonder if I ate 30 sticks of butter if I’d put 7lbs on, and then it was suggested I use Nangerine™ (you know, that butter you used to have at your Nans that tasted like cheap margarine but wasn’t? Yeah I trademarked that – REALLY REALLY) – but I think I’ll give it a miss.
I did keep a diary this week and I was quite surprised by the fact that I lost as much because I thought I ate a lot!
My typical day consists of fruit when I wake up and a fizzy drink (soz water, you just don’t cut it) – then I have a skinny latte/capp around 10am at work, at around 10.30 I have my overnight oats (god bless them) and then I have my lunch which is usually syn free, or just a handful of syns and then at night I cook something, I’ve had mince, chicken and even garlic bread this week – and I also had a whole bottle of low calorie wine (yum) at my besties for catch up night along with crackers, cheese and meats that were not syn free in any way shape or form so I am over the moon!
One thing I did do last week was make my own SW Donuts:
I was very skeptical – but they turned out great. Recipe is:
- 1 Wholemeal Roll (I used my HExB)
- Filling if desired (I used 1.5 syns of Jam)
You poke a hole in the roll, fill with your filling (or I guess you could cut the roll with a cutter and make ring donuts, no filling needed and less syns), spray with frylight, roll in sweetner and then lob in a hot oven (about 180/200) for around 10 mins. VOILA!
I was so surprised at how good it tasted, I really did just expect it to taste like a hot jam sandwich. I guess if you can’t use your HExB it is a hefty synned treat at around 6syns depending on your size of roll, but hey – it’s lower than a regular donut!
I am excited for next weeks weigh in now, I just hope I keep it up – I’d be happy (I wouldn’t really) with 1lb a week, lose a stone and a bit before Christmas! I know I need to up my exercise but I always feel better doing that after I’ve shifted a few lbs, my knees are not the best.
