Anyone else doing slimming world?(1000 Posts)
Hi all, I joined slimmig world yesterday as I finally ready and motivated to get this weight off. Anyone else? Is there a support thread for those following slimming world? As I couldn't see one on here. If not anyone interested in helping to support each other here?
Don't be too hard on yourself Blondes, it's the getting back to plan today or tomorrow that matters rather than giving in.
Tiger where are you going on holiday? Is it going to be possible to eat lots of fish/chicken and salad
and save your syns for wine and icecream or a fondue and pizza sort of holiday (rather more challenging?). I usually find that if I can start the day with plenty of fruit (or beans, mushrooms, boiled egg, tomatoes if a cooked breakfast) and then have a lightish lunch I don't do quite so much damage. My downfall is hotel croissants/pastries at breakfast - it goes downhill pretty fast after that.
Badroly. What sort of things do your children eat usually? Would they eat fish pie, curries/chilli, frittata, casseroles, pasta and sauce? All have SW versions or I can send you some recipes if it helps?
Have had a better day today...
B - All Bran and banana with skimmed milk
Snacks - fruit, muller yogurt
L - Jacket potato and beans
D - SW cannelloni with spinach - surprisingly tasty even when made with cottage cheese which I was a bit sceptical about.
Had a tiny piece of DS's birthday cake and managed not to demolish half the cake which I would normally have done .
Going to have a later but saving it up!
i know girls, but you didnt see me
but now have 4 days to try and right the damage i caused
i also do tons of things with mince - lasagne, shepherds pie,chilli
but also do
pasta in tom sauce with prawns/chicken
salmon and rice
diet coke chicken
Hi beanandspud: Iceland. So there will be lots of seafood, lamb and yoghurt. I think it should be ok, I can avoid rich sauces, and hopefully there'll be low fat breakfasts etc. I can't wait!!!!
Beanandspud - they are pretty good so our standard meals are:
Cottage/shepherds pie, chilli, spag bog, carbonara, tuna pasta bake, chicken curry, fish pie, plain fish, meat and 2 veg meals, sausage and mash.
Casseroles are not popular - the big 2 really are not keen on slow cooked veg. None of them like visible onion . They all like eggs but in different forms .
I think I am just bored. Because dh is away Mon-Thurs I don't tend to experiment too much as they are better at trying new stuff when we are both there. I'm sure I'll snap out of it tomorrow
Bad roly / off the top of my head as I'm working
Fry light chicken cut into peices
Then add a can of diet coke - I actually prefer Pepsi max - add 2/3 tablespoons passarta - Worcester sauce - stock cube - and simmer
Many add 5 spice Chinese but I don't
Add veg and bring to boil and simmer - takes 30/40mins to reduce and goes stickish like BBQ sauce
I chop onions peppers baby corn courgette carrot and then Have on top of noodles
Trying to think if I've left something out
Google sw diet coke chicken
Tbh most recipes can be found like that
Sweet and sour was delicious, and 14 month old DD loved it too! Although as usual I cocked up the rice. I am terrible at cooking rice. Is boil in the bag rice free?
Haven't been very good today, started off well then went gradually downhill...
B - Weetabix with SS milk and sugar, muller light strawberry - 1 syn.
L - Jacket potato with beans.
D - Chinese takeaway (to be fair, the electricity was out so I couldn't cook anything, and thought it would be the best takeaway. I didn't have too much... and I probably had enough syns to cover it if you take it over the week.
Then had some cake.. a little bit which I shared with DD. And another puddingy thing which involved cream and biscuit type thing. Eek.
On the plus side.. I dug out some jeans which didn't fit and..... I'm wearing them right now! They're a bit on the snug side (have a wee bit of a muffin top) but they are on and done up! Wahoo!
Brilliant, thank you. We'll be trying that this week!
So just weighed myself at home as not going to group and I've lost 1.5lb in my first week. Would like to have lost more but a loss will do!
no you didnt only i do that . 1.5 is good, keep going and well done, tongiht despite being of halo eatingness today dh came in and found the sealed victoria chocolate biscuits and opened them and.... i had 2! I am so gutted in fact now i want a cup of tea and another 2 to dunk in
Hi Sunny well done on 1.5. A loss is a loss and no you didn't kill the thread!
I haven't had much appetite today- lunch really was just fruit and veg. And I have munched carrots all afternoon. About to have a jacket with prawns and cherry toms but don't really fancy it
Well, think I was a couple of syns over yesterday (can't remember as DS not sleeping well and I'm suffering from sleep deprivation!).
Also 2.5 syns over today as needed chocolate and caffeine to keep going at work due said sleep deprivation!
B - 2 x weetabix with milk (healthy extras), a mullerlight
S - banana, wafer thin ham, mullerlight
L - 4 x ryvita, cottage cheese with sweet chilli (6 syns for the ryvita)
S - mullerlight, a strawberry, an apple
Choc - Dark Choc Kit Kat (5.5 syns)
D - cheesy tuna pasta bake (6 syns)
Still, not the end of the world and probably won't make the difference between a loss or not, as long as I'm on plan for the next few days before weigh in.
sunny- well done on the loss, great start.
wishyou batchelors rice in packets is free, chicken one nice - fab in smaller jeans
sunny well done on loss

seriously do you think you can have too many muller? my fridge is heaving with them too, i am trying to cut down but tonight fell in love all over with vanilla on fruit of course!
as for my two biscuits my AF has just arrived so feel its justified now
Breezing in with a little half pound loss today - not the best, but not a STS or gain! At this rate it will be Summer 2014 before I am thinner! Was TOTM so that may have had an effect.
Had appt today for my diabetic review and my levels are raised above the threshold, so have to go back in 3 months and if still raised, will be given tablets. Tyhroid playing up too - these are linked. So may be tablets for that as well. I will rattle I think.
Time to have a few weeks sugar free (completely) and see if that shifts any weight.
laughalot well done. Amazing loss in 4 weeks. Puts my 6lbs to shame
androb it's a loss well done
And yes technically allowed as many ml as you like but guessif you ate 10 a day you would gain weight
Hello all, welcome new people and well done on losses and sts (sustainability!)
I have sts this week too, but astonished not a gain after a rather erratic week of too many syns. On the plus side, I did make choices within my splurge to minimise the damage, and whereas usually I would now give up, I got back on the scales this morning and am here posting and thinking positively about staying on track. The thread is working
So, 5 lb loss in total, 1 1/4 a week average, aiming to get that up to 1 1/3.
Blondes I do have a lot to lose though mate chin up !!!!!!! Keep going ladies a few 1lb off is better than a few on
Just a quick update all lost 4.5lbs last night and got my half stone award - thats 9.5lbs in four weigh ins which I am pleased with.
We going out for my daughters eighteenth tomorrow to an Indian restaurant. So I've been looking what's best for my SW diet. Thinking Biryani Will be best because its not fried or full of creamy sauce. Do you think that's right choice? Also does anyone know how many syns are Birds Eye cod fishcakes please?
tinder well done for sts
smelly fab loss
b yog and fruit
l spag bol a la spinach
t sweet pot and chick pea curry and rice
both lunch and tea have tons of superfree veg in them
woeking tonight so instead of eating choc biscuits i plan to have a mugshot (again)
