1st week in.

I was back... my third (and hopefully most successful time at Slimming World).

I had the motivation to loose weight, I had the support to loose weight now I just had to prove to myself I could do it.

I knew I was overweight, I always had been on the slightly larger side to put it nicely and only being 5ft 1" doesn't help.

I have had two caesareans within 14 months of each other, the most recent 20 weeks ago. I had finished four years of steroid treatment for endometriosis which didn't help my weight either.

I knew it was time to do something different, I didn't want to be the fat friend/girlfriend/daughter or mum anymore.

I was 16st 10lbs - the heaviest I had ever been. I was embarrassed and disgusted that I could let myself get like that, I wouldn't tell anyone what I weighed, I hated looking at myself in the mirror.

My first day didn't start off as well as I had hoped and I nearly gave up at the first hurdle, skipped breakfast skipped lunch and didn't eat till dinner. I was tempted to go off track totally but I didn't, I knew if I did that there would be no hope for the rest of the week so chicken & bacon salad it was!

My first week was surprisingly easy, I didn't have to change dinner time meals too much to what I was already cooking. For me it was making sure I was eating three meals a day, with a new born baby I would often get to dinner time and realise I hadn't eaten or had a drink all day.

Breakfast was porridge or toast (HEB) with milk or cheese (HEA).

I could easily not use any syns in a day, I was saving them for the weekend. I needed chocolate!

Since being with my partner I have developed somewhat of a sweet tooth, I know I could still eat chocolate on slimming world but I wanted to try and save this for weekends only.

Some meals this week:
Chicken stir fry with vegetables noodles and an Asda Chow Mein sauce
Homemade burgers, slimming world chips and salad
Cottage pie, new potatoes and vegetables
