The Scales – an unhealthy addiction?

A year ago I binned my scales in a sort of dieting rebellion and decided that I didn’t need to obsess over the numbers on the sad step.

2017 was to be the year I broke the habit of a lifetime – I wanted to do a whole year of not weighing myself, and break the obsessive pattern I’d got myself into.

Calorie counting & going back to basics – my weight loss journey

I’ve not written about my weight loss for a while, for a few reasons:

  1. I’ve not lost any weight
  2. I’ve lost all willpower
  3. I’ve fallen back into the faddy diets cycle again.

As I wrote back in September I joined Slimming World and lost a stone, and was chuffed to pieces as it came off within a month, however over the next six months I just lost and regained the same two pounds, and became really pissed off and demotivated.

Week 14 – Slimming World & weight loss update

I’m so rubbish at these weekly updates – but it’s been an awesome week after a few up and down ones where I’ve struggled to get my head back into the game.

So I decided last week to really try and stay on plan and do the best I could – I also took advice from my consultant who very wisely said that 7 days is a long time, and to think about the week as 21 meals; which really resonated with me.

Weigh-in Wednesday: Week 11

I’m totally not feeling things at the moment – I’m struggling to stay within my syns and my appetite is changing, not sure whether that’s a side effect from being back on the mini-pill or just the fact that this is now the longest I’ve been on any form of healthy eating plan and I’m loving it.

How much weight can you gain in a day?

Do you ever find yourself googling ridiculous things?

I found myself asking stupid questions all the time and it’s addictive – I’m also guilty of going through pages and pages of search results to find an answer that I’m happy with.  Hmm. Continue reading “How much weight can you gain in a day?”

Weigh-in Wednesday(late again) – week 5

I’m as flaky as a, well, flake at the moment… I’m still playing catching up after my massive depressive episode and plus my hubs has been poorly(will explain more later on that).

So this Wednesday was my week 5 weigh in and I was shitting it.  I’d not been sticking to plan and I was expecting a gain.  I was also full of cold and my body wanted bread and nothing else. Continue reading “Weigh-in Wednesday(late again) – week 5”

Weigh in Wednesday – Week Four update

I’m very behind – apologies – life has been a little hectic and my brain frazzled so consider this weeks two and three as well as four…

Four weeks in and I’m loving Slimming World this time round – I’m enjoying creating and eating beautiful dishes and for me spending an hour or two a day in the kitchen cooking is doing me the world of good depression-wise. Continue reading “Weigh in Wednesday – Week Four update”
