It does. Back to work on the 2nd of Feb too so I need to get into a routine of eating Smile

6 month old cling on I know that felling well he's got a tooth coming (one bright red cheek) so just wants mummy cuddles.

All these fab weight loss ppl are having are you excessing more or so far just changing what your eating.
I managed 10000 + steps today plus have fitness DVD's by the bucket load but can't seem to get my ass in gear to do them and think I'm gonna show myself up on weigh in day.


pinkbear82 · 16/01/2015 07:08

3lb off, which is more than I thought possible. That's my first stone gone. 4 and a bit to go.

Crystal - I need to do some form of exercise, keep saying I will. I do walk everywhere (don't drive so kinda have to!) I have a dodgy knee, which of course the weight doesn't help, so will have to find something that doesn't set it off.

Any DVDs any one would recommend?


Jamrollypolly · 16/01/2015 13:42

Had my first weigh in yesterday and lost 5lb. Wasn't expecting that as I went to Nandos's during the week and had cake at a party too!

I think slimming world has taught me to enjoy the food I choose for my syns, I just used to gobble everything down before without thinking.


crystal85 · 16/01/2015 14:28

Hi pink I love jillian mic 30 day shed only 30 mins long but not sure about with a funny knee.
I have borrowed cousins insanity DVD but to scared to watch it let alone try it lol.

Jingley - we're all support you on here, I only join SW last week first weigh in is Tuesday so your not miles behind xx


flashyballs · 16/01/2015 15:54

Yes we're here to help each other. Weigh in on Monday and I don't think I'll have lost. I've not been able to eat when I want or have my all of my healthy extras. Those mini babybels are good though for hea. Tomorrow night I'm treating myself to a bottle of wine x


pinkbear82 · 20/01/2015 05:59

How's everyone doing?


crystal85 · 20/01/2015 06:28

Hiya pink
My first weigh in today not holding out much hope :-S

  • had 58 syns on Saturday opps - it was my mum bday and 13 of us went for Chinese.

How r I getting on x

flashyballs · 20/01/2015 13:01

Weigh in yesterday and lost 2,5 pounds, so very happy, good luck crystal.


Jamrollypolly · 20/01/2015 13:44

Does the weight loss slow down in week 2? I lost 5lb last week but I don't think it's going to be as much this week. Anyone had their second weigh in?


Jamrollypolly · 20/01/2015 13:45

Crystal, I think I'm fine when I'm by self but it's social gatherings which make me stumble too.


flashyballs · 20/01/2015 16:09

My friend lost 11 in the 1st week Jam then maintained for 2 weeks, she's now lost her stone, my weigh in was the 2nd week and I lost half a pound more.


crystal85 · 20/01/2015 16:42

Well I lost half a pound but I am happy with this as I actually had 58 syns on Saturday naughty naughty
Booked into do step class this week (Sunday) hopefully start of my excerise.


flashyballs · 20/01/2015 20:13

Well done crystal Smile


pinkbear82 · 20/01/2015 21:19

Well done all!

Had a really hungry few days Sad I feel like I am constantly eating. Hoping I am at least having less compared to what I would have done.... Hoping to have a good couple of days and pull it back, but, have a feeling Friday will not be a good weigh in. Can I blame the cold weather?! sounds better than my lack of self control


flashyballs · 21/01/2015 09:08

As long as you're eating within your syns and it's free food you should be fine pink x


MickeyMixer · 22/01/2015 12:02

Feeling positive - another six pounds off - hope I can lose some more next week.


Jamrollypolly · 22/01/2015 17:43

Lost 2lb, surprising as I was naughty for 2 days last week.


pinkbear82 · 23/01/2015 19:29

1lb off. Which amazed me. Must be more focused next week.
I blame hormones


flashyballs · 24/01/2015 08:51

Wow fab losses everyone, I had wine last night and planning on doing my fave meal which is not slimming world friendly tonight Blush


calzone · 24/01/2015 09:02

I've lost 10lbs over 2 weeks which I am pleased about.

Am a bit scared of the syns as I think once I start eating chocolate, I won't stop!


pinkbear82 · 24/01/2015 17:47

Pizza Hut pizza today has pushed me into about a zillion syns I think. So many I am ignoring it and cancelling today. Rest of the week WILL be good.
I will be extra hard on myself this week and make sure I am good, I am determined to shift this weight. 13lb in three weeks is a good boost, but can't let it slip.

How much exercise are you all doing? I'm a bit rubbish at it, I do walk most places. As don't drive. And it's good to dd to as well. But otherwise I am rubbish. I have an exercise bike I keep looking at and thinking I should use, just haven't got further than thinking it. Blush


flashyballs · 27/01/2015 15:55

Yummm pizza, some slimming world meals just don't hit the spot like the real thing do they.

Another 2lb lost, no weigh in next week though as I'm back to work.


crystal85 · 27/01/2015 16:19

Well done flashy I've done 1.5 this week not bad considering fish and chips last night xx


flashyballs · 28/01/2015 08:20

Well done. I'm struggling with the speed foods. I need to force them down me
