I've missed a few posts this week as I've just been busy and I've just not made the time to blog or take photos, i normally have a fairly strict schedule but I'm thinking i might try without one for a while - just post as and when and see which i prefer because at the moment, I'm enjoying not rushing around getting a post together so we shall see how this goes.
Today's post is my latest Slimming World Update, this was due to go up on the 4th but as i just mentioned i was busy so here we are...I feel like I'm struggling with SW at the moment! I'm really torn between wanting to lose more weight and wanting to eat everything i shouldn't.
Since being away in Scotland and having a really off plan week due to lack of options (it was a VERY small town) it's really thrown me off plan and I'm struggling to find my way back! I also don't really know how I managed to have a loss the week after my holiday either - I was expecting a good 3-5lbs gain!
I'm finding my meals are fine, I really enjoy those and they're pretty much always SE friendly but it's just the snacking - I'm struggling to say no to naughty sweet treats!
I've been working quite a few 12-6 shifts which I think are partly to blame because it's to early to have a dinner then by the time I finish work I'm starving so I'm snacking whilst I'm making tea and even then my tea isn't fully filling me so I'm continuing to snack!
I think those shifts are over for now so I'm going to see how I get on for the next few weeks and see if I'm right! I really need to get my head back into it though because whilst I'm still losing, it's only 0.5lbs and it'll take me ages to reach my next milestone!
One thing i am really proud of this month is that i got my Club 10 award, which means I've officially lost 10% of my body weight - my small losses means, i am holding onto it by the skin of my teeth (is that the expression or i have just made that up?) but I've got it all the same so i need to get my head back into gear to keep hold of it and hopefully get my free week if i maintain it for 10 weeks.

Best SW Discovery This Month: SlimmingMillie's Instagram: she's a serious inspiration - she's been doing SW from home and only just joined an official group but by herself she has lost about 8 stone, possibly more and she's really close to her target weight as well.
Favourite Meal: SW Chicken Saag - this is an Iceland meal and it's only the second time I've had it but its so nice, i like to have mine with some SW chips and a couple of Poppodoms (these are synned) but it's so tasty and it does feel like you're having a treat meal.
Least Favourite Meal: SW pizza - i was really grateful to find this recipe at first but it never quite fulfills my pizza craving! The last time I had it, it also made me really ill so it's kind of put me off it!
Non Scale Victories:
- received a few compliments off people who've recognised my weight loss
- tried a vest top on that I could never get on past my hips and now it fits comfortably
Goals for Next Month:
1. Reach 2 Stone!
2. Cut down on the snacking
A very slow month, progress wise! I have a weigh in tonight but i don't have high hopes because I've not been very good this week. I've eaten out a few times and I've consumed ALOT of alcohol but we shall see how it goes and I'm determined to get my butt back into gear this week.
