When I first started Slimming World - I was on it and dedicated, so many people in my group have slips up and at first, I was so surprised how much some people seemed to struggle, until this month. I've not been horrifically off plan or ridiculously unhealthy but it's been a real struggle saying no and trying to resist sweets and snacks!

Onto this months update...I was home alone for two weeks whilst the rest of my family went on holiday and I thought I'd have breezed through it but I found myself wanting treats and I didn't have them around me to keep me on track - I didn't stray too badly but I did have a couple of naughty meals -McDonald's and takeaway pizza, I'd regret it but they were delicious!
Missing a Weigh In!I also had to miss one of my weigh ins as I had tickets booked to see American Idiot so those two weeks were a bit wobbly! I still planned my meals out as much as possible but I felt that without that one weigh in, I could stray and had a few naughty meals and snacks! I don't regret them but I was definitely panicking when it was back to weigh in! It's surprising how much missing one weigh in can really throw you off!
I've some how managed to avoid any gains so far so I was really dreading weighing in and it being really bad but by some miracle i had another loss. My mum reckons it's my metabolism improving but I'm convinced I'm going to have a gain one week and it really bite my in the bum.
AwardsOn week six, I hit a new milestone and got my one stone award! It was totally unexpected and I can not believe that I managed to get there especially in just 6 weeks! That same week I got Slimmer of the Week, which again was a total shock but it's such an ego boost and really motivates you! At my last weigh in, i was awarded Slimmer of the Month and I'm so proud of myself. There is not a nicer feeling than to see that it's working, to see the scales are going down and you are really making a change! It makes those struggles worth it!
After the little struggles these past fee weeks, I'm now getting back on plan and i need to find a variety of SW friendly snacks that will beat my cravings but are very low syn or syn free - any suggestions please send them my way.

Favourite Meal: Steak Stir Fry. All healthy and speed food, no syns except for the seasoning i used on the steak.
