A humourous title it may be, but the reason behind setting up this blog is serious business. I invite you to join me on a long hard mission to lose weight, get fit and get pregnant! I apologise in advance for any insane ramblings, tears and tantrums that may occur along the way...

#7 - One Thing Not To Do...


I always tell myself it is a bad idea to obsess over weighing myself througout the week but time and time again I make the same mistake.

 Six days into this new eating regime and the scales seem to be stuck! I am trying not to be disheartened but usually in my first week of being on plan I lose a massive amount of weight. In my first week of Slimming World back in 2010 I lost 8lbs in the first week.

I was not expecting that this week but quietly hoping for about 4lbs to get me off to a flying start. I only have one more full day before weigh in so I will be absolutely gutted if I do not see a loss. I have been SO good so far.

There is only one small dilemma to face this week. I have been invited out for a meal tomorrow night. While I really want to go and spend time with good friends, the eating out issue is a tricky one. There is nothing healthy on the menu that I like. I am a fussy eater yes, but the healthiest looking meal on the menu available for a veggie looks deceptively synful! It is a tomato pasta but the sauce is made with butter...sure fire way to top up the syns over my allowance. Other than that it is pizza. Eeek.

I know that in time I will have to adjust to these social gatherings. One good thing with Slimming World is that you can use 'syns' in a flexible way so going over by a few syns is no big deal, you just have to make sure you take them from the next day's syns to balance it out.

So...do I throw caution to the wind and just go out and enjoy myself knowing that I have been incredibly strict with myself so far and intend to carry on as such after? Or do I continue to be totally strict and refuse the night out so I can stay properly on track?


  1. I would go and enjoy yourself. Be sensible, but don't start denying yourself nights out or you won't stick to it. Plan the next day carefully so you're not tempted to continue overdoing the indulgences, and then make a conscious decision that you are going to enjoy the meal out.

  2. Fruit salad and a plate full of quorn and veggies on Sunday then! :-) Thanks. I know I need to deal with having a social life. Not often I get invited out. The woman organising it was still begging me to come earlier today and booked me a place before I gave my final answer so I guess I have to go right?!

  3. I've lost almost 40 kilos and i'm pleased with that.I drink a lot of water every day and eat lot fiberfood and vegetables and a lot of walks.So i've stoped look on weight scale.My body feels good now and that counts.Have a nice day.
