And so it’s 2013…

Happy New Year!

So it’s 2013 and so many people are saying ‘New Year, New Start’ or ‘New Me’ and I really hope those people choose to look at Slimming World, because I don’t feel the need to aim for a new me anymore. I am so happy with the plan at Slimming World that I am simply going to aim for a thinner, more confident me, nothing ‘new’ about that!

If anyone reading this feels like giving it a go, check the Slimming World  website ( to join online (USA too!) or for your nearest group. Orrrrrr just come all the way to Eastern Green, Coventry to my amazing Group Consultant, Helen!!

Anyway… I did ok over Christmas week and lost a pound (yey) hooooooowever, I have not been so good over the week between Christmas and New Year and I am pretty sure I’ve piled on the pounds. We’ll see at weigh in tomorrow. I’m not going to let it bother me though; I’ve drawn a line under it and am back on it and more motivated than ever to do well.

I am currently around half a stone (depending on how much my gain is this week) away from my first target, and I really want to get to that by my birthday in March, but I wanted to start the year with a sort of tally of how it’s been so far…

Goal 1: Lose 1 st 8 lbs
Date of 1st Weigh In: 27.9.12
Current Loss:  1 st 2 lbs (as of last weigh in on 27.12.12)
Lbs until Goal: 6 lbs

Then I will move my goal… I would like to be under a certain number on the scales, but slowly does it right?! I’m quite happy with that now I’ve written it out! 🙂

I’m going to do my best to keep up with blogging my recipes and helpful hints and other rambly nonsense I usually blog…  But now I’m off to blend my super speed soup in a last minute attempt this week!

Thanks for reading, please let me know how you’re doing if you’d like to, I’m interested in how everyone is feeling 🙂



Christmas Week…

Well, I got through Christmas week fairly well, which I am happy about! I ate lots, but not lots of crap, and I managed to lose 1 lb!! Wooooo!! I hope that I can get though New Year with the same mentality!

Sorry for the short and sweet post, I have a lot of housework to get through before New Years Eve… boring facts of real life!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and all have a Happy New Year! Xx

So we’re half way through week 2…

Before I get into this post, I need to mention my Slimming World buddy Leanne. Yesterday she got her ½ stone award! Wooooooooo! Go Leanne!! So pleased for her! Now I just need to work my arse off (literally) and get mine!

That said, I’m half way through week 2 and I have to be honest, I’m not feeling very positive about how I’m doing this week! I have stuck to plan really well, and not had more than 8 syns in a day, but I don’t think the scales are going to be very good to me. Another thing worrying me is that I have to weigh in 1 day early as my Mum and I can’t make it to our normal group this week as we are going to see Sarah Millican (yey!) but I’m stressing about it a bit!

I wanted to share one of my favourite meals from my first couple of weeks. It’s incredibly easy, so it’s no Jamie Oliver recipe… it’s pretty much a stir fry! I use Quorn and mixed vegetables (free) and I have it with rice (Free) or 2 small slices of bread (Healthy Option B). I sometimes use chicken but I really hate cooking meat, so I prefer to use Quorn. It fills you up so much, and you can have a big portion if you’re reeeeeally hungry as most of it is SUPERFREE food!!

What makes it for me is the Chinese Five Spice and Soy Sauce…It is delicious!

Let’s go to the Seaside for the day :)

Today my friends Lou, Leanne and I went to the seaside for the day to watch our other friends Hannah and Callum in a show. Leanne is also following Slimming World, so that was good… but being on the sea front and not having fish and chips or sweets or ice cream was a killer!!! Buuuuuut I resisted and I felt pretty proud of myself when I got home tonight and tucked straight into a big bowl of Quorn and Vegetables followed by a massive bowl of fruit… Great SW Sunday in my opinion 🙂
