Second weigh-in

Happy Friday everyone! I hope the weather where you are is just as glorious and sunny as it is here. Just a quick post from me today to update you on my second Slimming World week.

Today is weigh-in, obviously, and I honestly went in feeling less than optimistic. I sorta experimented this week by changing a few things up to see how my body would respond and if I'd still lose weight. I wasn't having big cooked lunches for a start because I've never been a big lunch person and spending 20-30 minutes cooking it isn't my idea of fun. Anyway, apart from having smaller lunches like a chicken sandwich (being bad with the bread, I know) or missing lunch altogether (only happened twice), I also hadn't made any fruit smoothies this week and I'd not had any spinach. Last week I had spinach in everything and had a fruit smoothie (also containing spinach) with every lunch. I also didn't have any Hydraslim either.  After all those changes, I weighed myself yesterday and I was exactly the same weight as last Friday's weigh-in. That didn't upset me because it was good to know that I hadn't put on weight at all. I did want to try and get a small loss in, even if it was just 0.1kg or whatever. So, at school drop off time, when my mum friend who got me onto Slimming World, said she was taking her son to the park, I jumped on the chance to join her. However, through a twist of fate, the park next to the school was closed and we ended up having to walk 1.6km (1 mile) to the next one. It ended up being a 3km (2 mile) round trip and after that I still had to walk to Tesco and do a few other things. I ended up walking 9.37km (5.8 miles) in total yesterday. I also did cook up a lunch for myself which the kids also had for dinner. It was a simple Creamy Basil and Chilli Linguine dish. I didn't like the smell of it, but it did taste quite nice.

Anyway, enough of that, you're probably wondering what my weigh-in actually showed today. Well, much to my disbelief, I weighed in at 0.6kg (1.3lbs) less than I did at the same time last Friday! I don't know if it was all the walking or the fact I ate properly yesterday or if the scales had just been wrong yesterday but I'm now officially 1.6kg (3.5lbs) lighter than when I started and I feel very good about that. I'll probably keep experimenting with things a bit to figure out what works best for me and what my limitations are etc but so far, two weeks into Slimming World and I'm still feeling incredibly positive and not at all wanting to quit. Such a big difference from every other diet/lifestyle change I've tried in the past. Positivity all around today! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go enjoy the sunshine!

Until next time,
