Hi! smile

I decided to start the SW eating plan again after I fell off the wagon 5yrs ago...blush

Will be joining my local group next Tuesday evening.
I have tried to get back on the wagon many times but this time feels different, I'm at the end of my tether with it and I'm at my shameful heaviest.

My stats: (confusedblushconfused)
Height:- 5'6
Weight:- 20st 9lbs
Age: 28

Anyone wanna join me? Or point me in the direction of an existing thread? xx

HI i did slimming world for a few months a couple of years ago before my wedding and lost about a stone and a half,i stopped doing it after the wedding and put it all back on and more!

I am actually 8 weeks pregnant and considering doing it again,i i dont tend to put much weight on when pg but inbetween pgs i do!I am 105 kg now,10 kg than i was after my son was born 7 months other pregnancies and births have all been straightforward and enjoyable and i dont want my weight to change it.

Has anyone done it when pregnant?

Name: LollipopViolet
Age: 23
Starting Weight: 13 stone 6
Current Weight: 12 stone 13.5
Goal Weight: 8 stone something? I don't know really.

Trying to be positive about it as at least I survived Easter without gaining!
Really hope you haven't all abandoned me haha xx

CherryPie3 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:48:24

Hmmm, no one around?

Hope you're all well x

Really wanted to go mad and proper binge this morning so I quickly cooked some poached eggs with a slice of wm toast and a full tin of beans! I was so full afterwards, glad my 'binge' was a controlled one.

So I've had half of one HExB today.

<sigh> I want to go on a noce long walk right now but I can't cos my brothers coming over. Moan moan grumble grumble.

Lemon Cajun Chicken kebabs...
4tbsp fat free natural or Greek yoghurt
2tbsp Cajun seasoning
1tsp lemon juice (the concentrated stuff is fine)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chicken breast chunks

1) In a bowl or ziploc bag, mix all the ingredients together. Zip the bag up and give it a good shake.

2) Stick it in the fridge to marinate for 4-6 hours (preferably overnight). (I always prepare mine the evening before I need it so it marinates for about 24hrs).

3) Thread chicken into kebab skewers and grill until cooked, turning regularly. You could even oven bake the chunks and serve in a wholemeal pitta bread. (I think these can be a HExB option).


Syn Free BBQ Sauce.
1 onion peeled and chopped
1tsp mild chilli powder
8fl oz passata
3tbsp canderel or Splenda
4tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Worcestershire sauce
Half tsp mustard powder
Salt and fresh ground pepper

1) sauté the onion and chilli powder in frylight on a low heat for 5mins until softened.

2) stir in remaining ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins until thickened. Whizz with a hand blender until smooth.

Can be used as a cooking sauce it marinade. I suppose it would be ok as a dipping sauce too but it wasn't to my taste. It freezes well too.

How's everyone doing?

Had my weigh in this morning...another 1lb off taking total loss to 1st 4lb in 6weeks.
I'll be stepping up the workouts this week and taking the toddler out on long walks in the big 3 wheeler buggy. I wish the weight was coming off a bit quicker, we're off back to Disneyland Paris in July and I want to take the kids on Crush's Coaster...I've always been too scared to try before In case I'm too fat for the harness sad

Hope everyone's doing well xx

CherryPie3 Fri 22-Mar-13 13:55:38

Hello everyone smile Welcome Ooger

How is everyone? I thought I'd have had loads of posts to catch up on but nope!
It's been my daughters birthday here and then I was ill so that's the reason for my absence. I haven't strayed from SW a single bit though!

I got weighed last Tuesday and had lost just 1lb but wasn't too bothered as I was ill anyway and at least it wasn't a gain...

We tried a new recipe this week, lemon and Greek yoghurt Cajun chicken kebabs. I didn't actually get to taste them as I left them for my husband - but he said they were amazing!! I'll post the recipe soon, they were very easy, literally put all ingredients in a ziploc bag to marinate (I left them 22hrs in the fridge) and then skewer them up into kebabs and grill smile

ceebee half a stone? Easy peasy for you smile

pickle glad to hear the boot camp is going well!!

I also made an awesome BBQ sauce this week, totally syn free and really tasty. Will also post recipe for that when I get chance. I used it as a marinade/cooking sauce to make hunters chicken. Today I'm using it to marinate potatoes! It's so lovely smile

Take care everyone x

Had 1/4 of this yummy spinach and feta pie for dinner last night, and for lunch today too.

Do you think it is a good or bad SW meal?

For lunch today had two poached eggs with it....

Oogerbooger Mon 18-Mar-13 08:28:37

Bought scales yesterday and leapt on this morning - 13st 7lb (I had guesstimated a whole stone heavier so yay!)


Weight: 13st 7lb
target: 11st
Age: 34
Height: 5'9"

Half a stone a month is completely doable ceebee

ceebeegeebies Sun 17-Mar-13 15:55:33


I have been AWOL after a couple of badweeks so back on it tomorrow smile

My holiday is only 5 months away now so my target is to try and lose half a stone a month hmm

Ledkr Sun 17-Mar-13 12:17:55

Hi all. Back on the wagon tomorrow although I have a site throat coming and don't fancy the gym which is a shame.
Any inspiration for my work lunch tomorrow?
I like something I can eat hot in this cold weather brrrrr.

Oogerbooger Sun 17-Mar-13 08:33:10

Hiya! Can I join too?

I have been what my MIL calls a "big girl" for years now, and put on more weight when pregnant and BF DD1. Had DD2 14 wks ago but bizarrely was 13lb lighter after giving birth than I was when I got pregnant! Felt really good about it (thinking good to start eating plan not on back foot) but have been inhaling food since then and now feel gargantuan! Keep thinking as BFing that I can afford the extra cals sad

Going to start on SW again - will dig out my old book and am off to buy some scales today.

Will confirm weight but details prob as follows:

Height: 5'9"
Weight: 14 1/2 stone
Age: 34
Target: 11 1/2 stone and will see where I am then smile

Find your stories v inspirational and hope you can hold my hand too to help me stick to SW this time smile

Hi everyone,
Thread seems to have slowed down so I thought I'd post a quick catch up (this thread had fallen off the 'threads I'm on' it's been so long.) So it's weigh-day for me again on Monday... I've not had a bad week, but it has been the most stressful week at work and I didn't eat at all thurs/Fri, as I felt sick with worry, so Fri evening after work I had cake AND chocolate to.give me a boost before Bootcamp.

Hope everyone else is still doing ok, I've decided that my small change this week will be increase the amount of water I'm drinking daily, as I'm now drinking water everyday, but I think I could drink more to see a better effect.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

picklepepper Wed 13-Mar-13 18:22:38

Hi all, some Fab weight losses this week, well done you lot! I misdeed my meeting on Monday as a meeting after work over ran, so I had the intention of going tomorrow night to another group until I remembered that's parents evening (last one if the year, Woohoo!) So I'll just have to wait till Monday.

I've been to 2 boot camp sessions so far, boy are they hard work, but it feel good to be doing some exercise along with the eating plan grin

Today I have had belvita breakfast biscuits for breakfast (probably terribly high in syns, but it was my only option when I was late leaving the house), chicken salad for lunch, and stir fry for dinner. Hoping for a good loss this week with the eating and exercise combined!

Please do share the angel delight recipe Wannabe , it sounds like something I would enjoy!

Ooh last night I was told that if you do slimming world chips (or in our case little potato squares) in the actifry and halfway through, put a jelly beef stock pot in then it flavours the chips and, apparently, is yummy indeed! (I don't know how that would relate to the oven version of the chips - we don't have an oven at present)

Next week's recipe is chocolate orange cake made with chickpeas instead of flour - quite excited to see that one!

CherryPie3 Wed 13-Mar-13 14:51:02

Ok, can't physically move after eating those chips and mushy peas!
It was so yummy though! Really felt like I was cheating though. Sooo full!!

CherryPie3 Wed 13-Mar-13 13:45:08

Afternoon all!

Amazing weightloss whoever!!!!!

grin at you touching your flat tummy ledkr, I'll be when I get my flat tummy smile

Just cooking SW chips and will have mushy peas with them for lunch (at 2pm hmm). Lashing of salt and vinegar and its still a syn free chippy meal! Yum!

Where is everyone lately? X

Ledkr Wed 13-Mar-13 09:19:01

I'm trying to get back on it and not doing too badly.
I'm eating far less and my tummy is looking quite flat. I'm so chuffed I keep touching it. People will think I'm insane.
Not done any exercise but will do over the weekend.

I didn't go to the meeting last week, but I went last night - 7 1/2 lbs off! Yay! I feel really motivated now grin

CherryPie3 Tue 12-Mar-13 16:38:58

Oh, it's double lines to cross out....

piece of crap


CherryPie3 Tue 12-Mar-13 16:37:55

Right, have tried to save the rolll call list to my laptop but something isn't working right and it isn't saving or typing in the font/size I'd like to. -piece- -of- -crap.- So, I'll try and save it as a draft on my email on my iphone, or in my notes maybe. <lightbulb moment>

Just thought I'd let you all know smile

My food diary for today:
breakfast: porridge with extra sweetener as I'm craving sugary stuff!

lunch: chicken fried rice the SW way.

Tea: Roast chicken with SW chips and a splash of gravy, or beans. Haven't decided yet.
