With December comes a lot of food temptations, walking through town and spotting those little wooden huts selling all kinds of sweet and savoury treats makes 'dieting' rather difficult. I am going to hold my hands up and admit that I am struggling, like really struggling.
This week at weigh in I had put 2lbs on, which is no surprise. I had a bad week last week and actually decided to give Slimming World up for a little while, I developed a I don't care attitude and even had a Chinese before weigh in which is unlike me, I will be naughty all week but always make sure that I have a good day before weigh in!
Yesterday after weigh in I went out and bought pancakes with Nutella and marshmallows from one of those Christmas huts, I had a gourmet burger for lunch followed by a chocolate fudge cake and custard. A little later on I had a chocolate waffle and a Wispa. I don't regret a thing.
Today I am feeling a little more positive about my weight loss journey. I am going to carry on attending Slimming World on a weekly basis, I've bought a countdown so would be stupid not to. I'm not going to stick 100% to plan, it is December and I am going to enjoy the Christmas season. I am, however, going to try and eat as healthy as I can when in the house.
I bought a Fitbit last week and today I have started tracking everything that I eat on there, for now my aim is to consume less calories than I burn off, or at least the same amount. If I lose weight this way then great, if I don't I'm not too bothered, so long as I don't go piling on what I have previously lost I will be happy.
I am hoping that this little break will do me good, a month of enjoying naughty treats will hopefully leave me feeling refreshed and ready to go come January. I will still be posting updates weekly about my weight gains/losses and sharing the healthy food that I did enjoy that week.
Slimming World, it isn't goodbye, it's see you later.
