...MID WEEK WEIGH INS!
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?
