Clean Eating: Slimming World - Weigh-in - Week 6

Week 6
Hello, and Happy Saturday to you :) What are you doing with your weekend? I am in my painting gear ready to tackle my kitchen - I'm repainting today I've decided!
So, yes my weigh-in is a little tardy this week, but I'm doing it now before I get myself covered in paint - eeek!

Actually, I was really happy with my weight loss this week - it's a lot of weight for me to lose......but still never, ever enough to win 'Slimmer of the Week' :(  It's stupid, it's just a silly sticker.......yet it's one, that is completely unattainable to me - Sod it, quite frankly I think I'll make my own sticker and certificate - haha, you think I'm joking right?!

But anyway.......I managed to lose a massive (for me.....) 2.5lbs. This is the most I've EVER lost in a week.......so yes, I deserve that sticker I'm not going to make ;)


So here we go: I went from 9st 6lbs to 9st 3.5lbs

Total Losses so Far:
Week 1: 0
Week 2: - 2.5lbs
Week 3: - 4 lbs
Week 4: -3lbs
Week 5: -5lbs
Week 6: -7.5lbs

Week 6


It's also that time of the month to do my measurements, I can actually tell I've lost inches this month as my clothes feel bigger - and, unfortunately I'm back in my B cup bras again this week - Booo, I'm really going to miss my C cup boobies!!

So, here we go.......Starting Measurements taken on 27th June 2015!
Starting Measurements: 
Bust: 36"
Waist: 29.5"
Hips: 39"

Measurements taken on 30th July 2015!
Bust: 36"
Waist: 28"
Hips: 38.5"

Not a massive inch loss, it looks and feels like I'm lost more if I'm honest.......but hey ho, clothes are fitting better and that's all that matters :)

Clean Eating: Slimming World - Food Diary - Day 33

33

This week I'm clean eating whilst following the Slimming World 'SP' Plan*: this allows me loads of S & P foods, plus 1 Healthy Extra A choice and 2 Healthy Extra B Choices and of course, the usual 5-15 syns daily. I may also incorporate some non S or P (Speed or Protein ) foods into my meals this week.



Today, I've decided that I'm pretty crappy with computers. I've decided to download a new browser as the current one keeps lagging and the flash keeps crashing - and no amount of cache clearing or updating seems to work, I've given up I can't understand what it needs to work properly.....so I've got this new browser....only trouble is, it's being glitchy with my html - we'll see!
So today is the day before I weigh-in, and I can honestly say that I feel so much slimmer this past week, I feel like the inches are finally disappearing ( horahhh!)  - and I've had one or two people comment that I've lost weight the past couple of days.....so it must be true right? 

As I said yesterday, I'm not feeling especially hungry right now.....I mean, I'm eating my meals - mostly - but I've not been too concerned with anything inbetween....which is fine of course.....but this leaves me uninterested in food, and very impartial to cooking for everyone in the evenings. I'm also feeling kinda bored with my modest repertoire of SP/Clean meals. I need to rediscover some passion for some good-old-fashion recipe searching on the interweb; but I can't quite muster - or supress the right balance of....erm......focus, maybe? Yep - that!
.....it'll happen, just not today!


So anyway, moving swiftly on to what I ate yesterday!

Looking at my food diary yesterday.....I can see I totally didn't eat enough, it seems that every now and then I go through phases like this - in a few days time I'll be desperately trying to stop myself from eating half of the fridge - seriously, it'll happen it ALWAYS does!

I've also been so busy and I guess I don't think about food as much when I'm busy........Tomorrow, I'm working all day, so it could go one of two ways depending upon how busy we are!
