New thread to see in 2018. Everyone welcome.

Having lost 4st in 2017... I'm looking at target by Valentine's Day if possible.

Look forward to welcoming everyone back and welcome to those embarking on their journey x

@susurration that's a shame. I made the dirty rice lots of people raced about and it was bland!

I’ve been proper cooking again and made a fabulous syn free carbonara for lunch.

Hi everyone, I started again (from home) on Tuesday. I joined time last year and lost just over a stone but then got complacent and started to eat cake / chocolate / cheese / biscuits and unsuprisngly have put 12lb of it back on. My actual meals today have been ok (B - overnight oats, L - scrambled egg with gravlax, T - salmon with veg) but I'm still struggling with all the extra bits. Today's additional bits are a lovely day slice of homemade banana cake, half a toasted buttered tea cake, 2 squares of dark chocolate and 2 breadsticks. Tomorrow is another day...
My starting stats are as follows:
Height 5'7"
Current weight 12st12lb
Target weight 11st

I had my first weigh in of the new year last night and lost 5.5 pounds 😊 really pleased!


nexttonormal · 05/01/2018 08:05

I'm in!
I need to lose 17lbs to get to target - I'm doing it at home with no classes.

I am vegetarian and love cheese so it will be hard to limit it. I may give it up completely and use my A choice just for milk.

I also need new batteries for my scales!


Lottbarn · 05/01/2018 09:56

This morning was the first weigh in for me of the year, 2.5lbs off this week. Really pleased 1 stone 6lbs off since I started in mid November! Time to put dinner in the slow cooker for tonight.


bingandflop · 05/01/2018 10:32

Just discovered the online weight loss planner, which is really useful. Is anyone else doing SW online?


amusedbush · 05/01/2018 10:38

Hi all. December was an absolute disaster for weight loss between a holiday, Christmas and a massive relapse in my eating disorder recovery. I went back to class last night and I've gained 12lbs since the end of November, which means it's utterly impossible that I'll be at target for my holiday in March Sad I was well on my way towards that goal but never mind - it is what it is.

Back up to 13st 1.5. Today is day one again.


Flutterby81 · 05/01/2018 11:40

Well done to everyone who lost over xmas/new year Smile 5th day on track today can’t wait to start seeing the results or more accurately for em feeling the results as my work trousers are uncomfortably tight round my waist Blush


latedecember1963 · 05/01/2018 12:24

Some great losses!
The hot salmon salad was delicious. I added some beetroot to give it extra colour. Going to eat the leftovers for tea tonight while the lads have pizzas.
Managed 32 minutes on the Wii this morning.


susurration · 05/01/2018 17:13

@bingandflop i'm doing it online only. I get too anxious trying to go to group things. My husband is happy to eat whatever I cook for slimming world and also stick to Syns. Lucky bugger loses the weight faster than me though!

@amusedbush please don't be disheartened. You have two months before your holiday, you don't know what might happen in that time.

I'm struggling a bit today. At work someone wafted a tin of Roses under my nose and I nearly caved in. I resisted, but my husband is off out tonight and normally I would treat myself to something like McDonalds or a pizza. Its a bit of a danger zone for me so hoping I stay strong and stay on plan.


Flutterby81 · 05/01/2018 17:51

I feel so hungry today not sure why as all I seem to have done since I got in from work is eat Confused
All free/speed or syned in but still feel like I’ve been bad coz I’ve eaten so much does anyone else get days like this?


caremummy · 05/01/2018 18:00

lunch : lentil soup and veggie sausage sandwich (heB+2.5)
Tea: linda mc 'pulled pork' with carrot chips (ran out of potatoes Shock and mini corn on the cob (1) + 1.5 syns of shloer light
everything else I've nibbled at has been free
Need weekend + Monday to be good in time for WI and a hopeful maintain Blush
still got my 250ml soya heA to use


ibuiltahomeforyou · 05/01/2018 18:46

I've had a terrible day today - I made SW eggs benedict for breakfast and leek and potato soup for lunch, but then ate crisps, cheese and crackers and two bread rolls. Then some of DD's humous sandwich for tea Blushand a bit of yoghurt, her leftovers etc etc.

I'm really tired so it affects my appetite.

I'm 9.5lbs from target at the moment and it's hard to stay on plan in some ways because I'm so close to getting there. That is totally nonsensical isn't it?!


mommytoboo86 · 05/01/2018 19:33

hi im new to the thread but not slimming world...
first joined in 2016 but after a major life event I put back on the 2 stone that I'd lost so rejoining a group on Monday.
I've got 5 sizes to lose...
I don't know how it equates to weight but I'd like to be a size 12/14 so that is my overall target rather than a weight target as for me I'm not losing weight for my health but my self esteem, mental health etc


Groovee · 05/01/2018 19:37

@ibuiltahomeforyou I'm 9lbs away and eat to stuff my face 🤦🏻‍♀️

Hoping for another good loss this week!


everyonesgotanopinion · 06/01/2018 08:09

I built a house - I recognise that feeling - so nearly there but not quite and self sabotage. I have 10 lbs to go to Target. I've come into the new year recharged after a month or so of losing and gaining the same few lbs. Feeling committed atm and keep reminding myself that I've already lost 2st and kept it off for a year, so lots of room for positivity 👍🏻


Pipsqueak11 · 06/01/2018 09:13

Hi everyone

Newyearnewme10 · 06/01/2018 11:25

@Pipsqueak11 cola chicken is a favourite.. give it a go, it's a winner in our house one a week👍🏼


Pipsqueak11 · 06/01/2018 12:10

Thanks newyear ! Will give it a go!


theotherendofthesockportal · 06/01/2018 13:38

@Pipsqueak11 we have Diet Coke chicken often at our house. My husband actually requests it, to me it tastes like sweet and sour chicken.


larry55 · 06/01/2018 13:54

I have you tried cooking chicken in diet orange tango instead of diet coke as I have been told it really tastes like sweet and sour chicken?

I am making a courgette lasagna tonight as Tom Kerridge made one on his programme on Wednesday but I will use frylight rather than olive oil and blended cottage cheese instead of ricotta.
