Slimming World : Weekly Weigh In Results & Food Diary #1

Last week I took the plunge and joined a local Slimming World group. I've previously followed the Slimming World weight loss plan online, but this time I felt that I needed the extra support and motivation that you get from joining a group. I was quite nervous about going alone but the group are warm and welcoming which is always good! Today I had my first weigh in...

This week I have lost 4lbs! I am super pleased with this loss, I have been on plan for the majority of the week but did go off plan a lot at The Royal Welsh Show on Thursday and at my friend's Wedding on Saturday. Aside from these two massively off plan days I have been very good the rest of the week, here are a few of the things that I have been eating.

Slimming world meal beef steak, tomato roast potatoes and salad

Wednesday was the day that I joined group, I had already had breakfast before attending and went to Wetherspoons after class. I had a baked potato with beef chilli and salad at Wetherspoons. For tea that night I had steak, tomatoes, roast potatoes and salad, I kept it all syn free as I'm guessing I'd had quite a few syns with my cereal and Wetherspoons food.

We went to the Royal Welsh Show, I strayed massively with a pork and stuffing roll and afternoon tea.

Friday - 0 Syns

For breakfast I had chopped leeks, tomatoes & bacon fried with eggs. For tea I had beef strips, potatoes and veg roasted in beef stock with garlic.  I used my Healthy extras on milk and two Alpen light bars.

My friend's Wedding, another naughty day including lots of very bad food and alcohol. 

Sunday - 0.5 Syns
Slimming world brunch potatoes, onion egg & beans

Sunday is when I properly got into the swing of things. I started the day with potatoes, onion egg & beans for brunch (we had babysitters & hangovers, I had a lie in!). I had chicken, potatoes & veg roasted in smoked paprika for tea folllowed by pudding of strawberries & bananas in 0% fat vanilla yoghurt (0.5 syns). For my healthy extras I had a milky coffee and two Alpen light bars.

My lunch was tuna baked potatoes and salad. For the potatoes I baked as normal, scooped the filling out and mixed it up with tuna, I then put this back into the skins, sprinkled with onions and put back in the oven while preparing the salad.

Slimming world snack cup of coffee and lemon light 0% fat yoghurt 0.5 syns

I had a lemon fat free yoghurt as a snack (0.5 syns). The milk for my coffee is my Health Extra A, I measured it out in the morning and used it in cups of coffee throughout the day.

I made beef chilli for tea which was served with rice and salad, all syn free.

For pudding that night I sliced strawberries and bananas and mixed them with 0% fat vanilla yoghurt (0.5 syns) and two crushed Alpen light bars (Health Extra B). This was beautiful, my very own Slimming World Sundae!

Leftover chilli & rice for lunch.

beef mince, potatoes, carrots, green beans and syn free gravy

Beef mince, potatoes, carrots, green beans in syn free gravy for tea (quarter an onion, place in a bowl with two table spoons of water, microwave for seven minutes, crumble over a beef stock cube, add boiling water then blend, personally, I add a little water and keep adding more into the blender until it is at the consistency that I want it).

cup of coffee with slimming world banana and strawberry sundae and a chocolate digestive

I had the above 'sundae' (0.5 syns) again along with a biscuit (4 syns) and a cup of coffee.

I'm aiming for a loss of 3lbs this week, I'm being greedy and going for half a stone in a fortnight! I have no days or nights out planned so I should be good and will enjoy more syns each day this week as I won't have anything to feel guilty about!

  2. Oh man I'm sitting here hungry, that desert is mouthwatering! Once the baby is out and I've learnt how to function with a newborn I actually cannot weight to get back to dieting! I have this illusion that I will be slimmer than normal once I have the baby because I will have to get off my tush but I'm sure it wont be that easy hehe

  3. Wow, so many delicious food, thank you for sharing.

  4. Well done! 4lbs is really good! On a curious side note... is that just from food? No working out? I love having a nose at the food you're allowed it helps give an idea of what is okay to still lose weight with. Keep going!

    1. Thank you! Glad you've enjoyed the post, and yep, the weight loss is all from food, I don't do exercise haha!

Steak, onions and mushrooms is one of my favourite meals so shall be looking into the diet to keep me on track. Well done on a fantastic first week loss, will definitely spur you on to keep going! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday - looking forward to reading about your progress! Sim xx

  6. As you know, I start SW tomorrow and I've come to have a nosey and see what I should expect! I am so excited, I keep going on about it to my boyfriend, he says I'm acting as if I'm going on a day out or something else really exciting but I don't care, it is exciting for me anyway haha!

    There's some fab meal ideas and inspiration here, thank you for sharing, I'll definitely be back soon for some more tips etc.
