This week marks the 9th week for me. A lot has happened in those 9 weeks already, which you can read back on, under the fitness tab above. I am still going, all though my journey seems to be going a lot slower then I hoped, I am still loosing. I am lighter now then I was at the start of the year, and I am feeling positive. I am still pushing through, and the results are showing. The inches are coming off, and I don't feel like I am on a diet 24/7.
This week saw the introduction of the fast diet kitchen replacement meals for my fast days. It is easier, as you don't have to prep food, which means less temptation, it also takes all the thinking out of working out the calories. The days food was a soup and a main meal. I actually got to eat two meals a day on my fast days.
The other five days I made better choices. The thinking slimmer pod is really coming into its own, and I am noticing it more and more. We are making healthier choices, choosing fresh soups over tinned, and we even made our own curries for a curry night, which was healthier, and cheaper. J was insisting on a pizza night too, we went to get them in, (we love the Sainsbury's create your own pizza's) and whilst browsing, both Daddy and myself decided we didn't WANT a pizza.... WOW!!! Pizza is one of the reasons why I got fat, when daddy and myself started dating. Instead we decided on one of the meal deals, of chicken, potatoes and green beans in a sauce, with a pudding and wine. OK, its not a fantastic choice, but a better alternative on a Friday night to the stodge of the pizza.
So this weeks weight loss.... considering I still haven't managed to get to the gym....
It isn't the 2Ib I was really hoping for to get me to the 1ib a week goal, however, its not far off. I did have a few alcoholic beverages, and chocolate, including a chocolate fondue pudding with the girls. So really im not doing bad at all. Next week, I am aiming for the 1Ib, this is due to lunch with the in-laws, and a lunch at the school.
Thinking slimmer is going to be running a second focus group using feedback from the first group (which I am in) and testing out some different content before they launch the new package to the public. The second group starts on 16th March so if you are interested in being a part of this project, you will need to enquire with the next couple of days.
