Remember me?? yes i’m still around and more importantly i’m still doing Slimming World. If you haven’t noticed i’m rather disorganised, this makes my blog posts in general very irregular. However, that is something i’m working on so thank you for sticking with me!.
Buzzing off last week achievements, I stayed right on plan. This was the only true good week I had for a while if i’m honest. I kept to what I knew and ended the week with 3lbs off.
This was a very sociable week which included a few glasses of wine and a few meals out. I didn’t want a gain so I decided to have a few Syn free days to help mend the damaged. Which helped as I lost 1lb, a loss is better than a gain no matter how big or small it is right?
This week I was struck down with a stomach bug. I couldn't face eating so spent the whole week living on Kit Kats and Pops crisps. Even though I was ill I dragged myself to weigh in. I knew I had a gain so I had two options. 1, not go in that week and make it for the following week or 2, go find out the damage and start a fresh the next week. Of course I choose 2. I ended the week with a 2 lb gain which I was really lucky to have considering.
Week 11After that 2 lb gain I was determined to get my 2 stones award which meant a 5lb loss. A bit ambitious but it is do able on SP,which I did for most of the week. This time I didn't find it too difficult as I planned planned planned!!. I ended the week with a 4lb loss, 1lb off that pesky 2 stones!!
Week 12I don’t know what happened to me this week. I think because I knew I needed 1lb off I didn't try as hard. I started the week really week but as the days went by I got more and more relaxed. I did however lose a lb so got my two stones award woop woop!
This week I am aiming for a 2lb loss so I can get my Club 10 Award. Reaching Club 10 means you are 10% lighter from when you started Slimming World. It also means you are a lot healthier too.
Here are some of things I have been eating
I have come to the conclusion that my small weight losses are due to two things. The first thing is because I had given up meat for Lent I was struggling for ideas of things to eat as apart from their chicken nuggets I hate the taste of Quorn, I’m also not a fan of tofu (Yuck). The second thing is I just lost my mojo. The 2 stone award was just at arms length for so many weeks and I just couldn't get it.
I’ve moaned about them in my previous post but I an really starting to enjoy the group sessions or as they call it Image Therapy. We have become like a little family and support each other no matter if we lose or gain. It’s also a great place for getting meal and snack ideas.
I’m also finding Instagram really helpful check out the hashtags #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworldsupport #slimmingworldfollowers if you fancy some meal ideas and inspirations. I also post a lot of my meals on there so if you’re not following me check me out @bumpandbeyondblog

I have decided to give myself 5 Non Scale Goals (NSG) for April;
- Fit into the dress I wore for my 30th Birthday Party
- Drink 7 glasses of water a day
- Try a new recipe every week
- Use my food diary daily
- Do 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week
So there you have it, the missing files. Hopefully I can commit to blog weekly.
How has your weight loss journey been going? Do you have any tips to stay motivated? I’d love to hear them
