ROUND FOUR!!!

Post by Lorraine on Thu 5 Jan 2012 - 22:40

Well, here we go again. Same old story and exactly where I was 12 months ago, lol. No, not funny really. I really am sick of looking like I do. I've let myself go again. I bought some size 16 jeans and they practically cut me in half and I flatly refuse to go into an 18. No way, no how!

Anyway, this afternoon I thought about trying that Diet Chef thing so had a good look at it. Sign up for 3 months and it's 39 a week, which I'd spend anyway. But, you have to pay all at once which was 195!!! Mother, believe it or not, said to get it if I wanted. I didn't really want to take that kind of money off her for that and it's an awful lot of money if I didn't like the food or ended up starving on 1200 calories a day.

So..I decided Slimming World was the way to go again and that the money would be better spent on an Asda shop so I could get lots of the right foods and so some batch cooking and freezing. I've got plenty of the cook books but I really need a new Food Directory as mine is years old, so off I go to ebay knowing full well that I'd have to pay over the odds. Extortionate prices actually. The bids on one were already up to 32.50 Shocked it's taking the pee really, but then, they know that idiots like me will pay it. Anyway, I found a BIN for 27.50 and bought it. Not really what I want to spend my digital designs money on, but hey ho!

Then I decided to have a look at the Slimming World website and discovered that they actually do an online membership, so I wouldn't have to go to the club and it's the same price, so I joined up. Great, a good motivational start methinks. Hmmmm, if only I'd thought of it before going to ebay. I could have bought the directory for 7.50. Groan Maybe one day, I'll lose the weight and actually keep it off.

Anyhow, here I am at 13st 10lb affraid and setting myself a target of 11st 5lbs.

Keep your fingers crossed for me again girls, pmsl. Mr Green

Well done Lorraine, you've done it before, you can do it again. I'm like you and refuse to go up a size.
I weighed myself, woah, how heavy were my clothes and new bracelet, unbelievable!
I've still got half a tin of roses in the front room though, even the kids aren't eating them, but I am :(

Well, I've got a whole tin of Quality Street, a whole tin of Celebrations and 2 bags of fruit pastels. lol!

I'm going to try and be good and sin them though, so just a few at a time. I will NOT be buying any more. Mr Green

You're not a fat granny Kim. You're a cuddly granny and they're the best. Mr Green

Go for it Lorraine - you can do it, you know you can. Once you get your mindset in the right direction it will be easy and you KNOW SW works.

Good luck with any, anyway, and let us be your helpers with encouragement and all that. You want to be slim enoug for a swimsuit in Cyprus, after all!

Well done, you know you can do it! I'll be with you in spirit; although I have kept my weight off (apart from a stray few lbs over Christmas), it's time I lost more.

Good luck, I know how you feel. I'd like to do something but no exercise is
my problem. Anyway, at the moment, I can't be bothered.

Well done on the first start and we all know you can do it. SW has had a big change to its thingy whatsits quite a few of them are doing it a t work and are doing really well with the new way. I need to lose a bit to stay in the size that i'm in and I have a wedding in April so thats my motivation, need to get rid of this cold before I can exercise.

Well, I'm really stressing today. Not a good start. Had my meals planned but can't get half of what I want in the village and then forgot other bits.

Really struggling to get my head round this today..not a good start and I'm quite irritable and bad tempered. All I want is to be able to plan a days food!!!!! Sometimes, I hate this bloody village.

Must be difficult if you are restricted to a smallish shop, these plans are ok if you can easily get out and about to find stuff.

Don't panic! I know it's not ideal, but if you can even start by making small changes, it's progress; you know that. Give yourself a bit of planning time and get a 'big' shop done when you can.

Don't give up Lorraine ... get yourself in the right frame of mind (for swimsuts in Cyprus with Betty in respite again) and then plan a whole week's meals and that way you can go outside of the village and it will be worth the petrol just because you will feel better getting all the ingredients you need.

You CAN CAN CAN CAN (no, not do the cancan) DO IT!!! clap Jumping for Joy Yes Yes Yes

Good luck with this, Lorraine: I personally don't mind if you are heavier than you'd like to be, but I worry about how ill it makes you when you're eating things you shouldn't. So if eating healthily stops you feeling ill, then I'm right behind you!

Y&ou can't go wrong with beans or tomatoes on toast with a bit of chili powder, you can get that in the village I'm sure.
It's horrid when you've got all psyched up though and are thwarted. Chin up girl.

Calmed down a bit now, lol.

Had egg, chips and beans for my tea and not a syn in sight. Mr Green
I also bunged a stew pack and a few extra veg in the pressure cooker and made some soup for the next couple of days.

I'm doing Weight watchers rather than SW as it just wasn't working and have lost 10lb now. So good luck Lorraine.

Bob got a couple of SW boolets in his paper at the w/e, do you want them. They were in the Mirror and have some 7 day plans in.

If you have joined online you will be able to access all the recipes etc so its much better.

I have just made broccoli soup for lunch tomorrow with frozen broccoli. Tastes yummy.

Hacked off today. Big time!

I haven't lost anything this week. I think I'm going back to green and original plan, this Extra Easy doesn't work for me. I'm eating far too much as far as I'm concerned, don't care what they say, lol.
