I've been trying to diet since christmas and have not lost anything. I got sick of it last week and said I'd start slimming world this week so inbetween I thought "fuck it, I'll spend this week eating EXACTLY what I want to eat".

That includes sausage rolls, crisps, big chocolate bars every night, biscuits, junky freezer meals - on tuesday my day consisted of:

Breakfast - toast
Lunch - Freezer ready meal, sausage roll, crisps
Dinner - steak slice and beans
supper - chicken burger
Supper 2 - Dairy milk


This is a typical day - yet low and behold this morning - the start of my slimming world diet - I'm 2lbs lighter!!! how does that work? I'm almost scared to diet now incase I put it back on!!!

They say it's not what you're eating, it's how much you eat and they're right. I've given up on diets I just count calories if I've put on a bit of weight. I try to be healthy but it's hard and I find that if I have a bowl of cereal I'm fine but if I had something like eggs and avocado I'd want something after, I just like my sugar!

Congrats on your unhealthy weight loss!!

Mindful eating is when you eat when your hungry and eat exactly what you want but stop when satisfied. Did you subconsciously do this?

For me there is about a weeks lag, it might be the diet working!

I am actually not that surprised.

You no doubt felt more satiated so didn't over eat!
