As you may know, I started going back my local Slimming World group last week to re-start my weight loss journey. I am determined that I will loose weight during this pregnancy. I do not want to gain weight like I did with my two previous pregnancies. I am also under consultant because of my weight and being pregnant so I would like to take my BMI down quite a bit during my pregnancy. Cross fingers!
My first week hasn't been too bad - in fact it has been brilliant. I felt so motivated. I stopped snacking on the kids food, I stopped eating white bread and I stuck to plan 100%. Although I went over my syns a little bit over the weekend, I had under 15 syns on the Thursday and Friday so it kind of balanced it out I guess. My home scales were looking good and I think that was one part of the reason to why I was so motivated. I also didn't have a takeaway, which I usually have one with my partner every week. So I am happy with that. I have been really pleased with the meals I have cooked from scratch this week. Here is what I have had for my dinner this week:
Wednesday: Beef Casserole
Thursday: Chicken Curry, Rice & SW Chips
Friday: Gammon, Egg, SW Chips, Mushrooms & Onions
Saturday: SW Chips, Salad, x2 Cheeseburgers
Sunday: Green Thai Chicken Curry
Monday: Super Rice, Salad & Chicken Skewers
Tuesday: Super Rice, Salad & Chicken Skewers
Wednesday: Homemade Donner Kebab with Salad & Garlic Mayo
I haven't completely planned my meals for next week as I need to do a food shop so it all depends what I have got in. But these are the meals I will be choosing from -
Green Thai Chicken Curry
Cheeseburger & Chips
Chilli Con Carne & Rice
Jacket Potatoe & Tuna
Chicken Skewers & Rice with Salad
Chicken Korma & Rice
I am going to look around for more recipes that I can try out though. Anyway, back on to what I did this week... My total LOSS for this week, my first week back, is...
How do you feel? I actually feel quite disappointed with my weight loss. My scales at home was saying 3-4lbs off UNTIL 4pm when I started to feel bloated. I did feel like leaving group and just coming home to eat junk but I stayed and I am glad I stayed at group. My consultant told me it's a good weight loss being in my 1st/2nd trimester and she did believe me when I said my home scales said more, because she has seen what I have been eating. So here is to next week! I am crossing all my fingers and toes for myself hoping it will be a bigger loss!
