Slimming World – Week 1

As most of you know, I have started on Slimming World and I have completed my first full week of Slimming World! I must admit that it took me a while to get my head round and I kept checking what I could and couldn’t eat, but I did an online shop to get everything in that I could eat and felt ready and raring to go. I did have to go out and get a few extra bits after seeing some tasty recipe ideas on Pinterest which I’ve pinned to my board. I did wonder how much weight you can lose in the first week of Slimming World but here’s how I got on in week 1 of Slimming World.

I will admit I had a bit of a wobble on Monday. I was menstrual and just wanted to eat bad food so I did keep within my syns – but only just!

There was another bump in the road as on Thursday, I fell ill so again it all went a bit to pot and I was struggling to swallow and slept a lot so that was a pretty low calorie day and not really sticking to plan.

So what an eventful first week but for the weight in… Drum roll….

Weight Change: Lost 7lbs! Hurrah 

I cannot believe I have lost half a stone in one week on Slimming World just through very small changes in my diet!! I am a huge cheese and white bread fan along with crisps so I really really thought I’d struggle but I have swapped to the occasional brown roll for a healthy option and the masses of cheddar have been changed in favour of babybel lights and I’m impressed how I haven’t missed it!

Fizzy pop is also a huge downfall of mine. I don’t know why as I never really used to drink it but I’ve got to admit I’ve had quite a bit of diet coke but am trying to cut that down too.

My goals for the coming week:

  • More exercise. I have been poorly but I think it’s essential to exercise more as well as doing the plan so I will try to walk a bit more and maybe start jogging again
  • Cut down on the diet coke. I’ve bought lots of mini bottles of water so hoping that works
  • Try out some recipes from my fakeaway book. By my own admission I’m a rubbish cook but we used to have a treat takeaway of a weekend so it’d be nice to try so my husband doesn’t feel so deprived!

Thanks for reading. I’m not expecting such a huge weight loss next week but any loss in my eyes is good and heading towards my goal (which is now just over 2 stone) I’m so chuffed so thanks Slimming World. I’d love to know if any of you are on the plan and how you’re getting on!

    Fantastic weight loss lovely well done! I really need to do something I keep dipping in and out of my healthy weight range, and being 5 foot 2 every extra lb shows, I’m a stone heavier than I was two years ago and I feel heavier than that! Must find my will power!

    Well done on your loss! Losing weight is hard! I found blogging really helped me stay focused though. I didn’t do slimming world or anything, just used my fitness pal and linked up with simslife for #weightlosswednesday and it made a huge difference. Having the support network and whatnot.

    Good luck on your weight loss journey xx

    wow! That’s an incredible first week, well done you! I’m so pleased for you as a good start can really get your head in the right place. I am such a diet coke addict too, I had to stop drinking it all together but a I must admit on SW I do buy a small bottle now and again just for something sweet. Well done Beth! Xx
