Sunday Summary #44

Sunday, 5 February 2012

Another week already, phew! How are you all getting on with your goals? We'd love to hear!

Gemma - Bit of a disaster this week, I put 1lb on when I weighed in class on Tuesday. I had a bad weekend before and I couldn't reverse the damage in one day. I have weighed at home this morning and I have lost this lb and a little more so I'm not too disappointed. I have stayed within my points this week but I have used a lot of them for coffees and treats rather than food and this is not a trend I want to see continue. I will put it down to the cold weather this week and try and snack on more healthy food next week and have more filling meals.

Charlene - Feeling really un-motivated with my Jenny Craig diet now, I'm almost finished though. I'm trying hard to stick to it but I'm getting bored of the same foods. I spoke to someone else who is doing the diet and they've got a different food for every day of their 2 week trial, whereas I only have 7 different main meals so it's the same things every week. I upped my hours at work so I'm now doing 12hr shifts and having to take breakfast, lunch AND dinner into work with me. Does anyone have any healthy ideas except from soup? I have access to a microwave.

Sarah V - I lost 1.5lbs at weigh-in this week, but have seriously fallen off the wagon since then. A combination of celebrating my best friend's engagement and a ridiculously busy and stressful week at work has lured me off the healthy path and towards alcohol and naughty food! I'm going to try and get back on it this week, although like Charlene I am struggling with Jenny Craig, it's only Week 2 but I'm getting bored already! Just got to try and stick to it, I guess!

Lucy - Had a bit of a nightmare this week, if you read my blog or Twitter you'll know I'm in London for two weeks. My accommodation didn't work out as planned so I am now in a house-share with at least five other people and the kitchen is disgusting and the fridge is mouldy, thus meaning I don't want to buy things that need refrigerating or use many pots and pans, so I am having to spend a small fortune on meals for one every night. Certainly not the most ideal of situations but not a lot can be done unfortunately. I am starting my Maxitone diet not this week but next, so hopefully we'll start to get back on track then!

Sarah - I have been struggling to get back on track since the honeymoon :( I am just not in the right place at the moment for Slimming World.  I love the diet and I know it works but you have to want that more than you want cake and at this moment in time cake is winning hands down each time... So, I still want to lose weight (23lbs or so more please) so I have decided to give Weight Watchers a go for a month or so and see how I get on with it.  I have joined Weight Watchers online via Quidco (thanks to Mrs Sock!) and will get £30 cash back meaning 3 months membership will only cost me £2.85, a bargain hey!  If any of you are thinking of doing the same thing let me know and I will send you a referral email :)  I am now on day 4 of WW and am constantly hungry even though I am eating loads of fruit and veg and am hoping that my body gets used to 26 points worth of food quickly!

  1. Charlene- I find the innocent veg pots really good. They are expensive but sainsburys and coop often have them on offer. Quick in the microwave and a filling alternative to soup x

    1. I would second these! Or quick homemade veggie chili & brown rice, wholewheat chicken wraps, mini bagels and cut up veggies :)

  2. Pre cook a baked potato and just reheat it in the microwave or I make cous cous salad, normally just chuck whatever I've got in it e.g. olives, raisins, nuts, peppers, dried apricots, chick peas, pre cooked chicken... (normally a selection, not everything I've just mentioned!!) Make a dressing by mixing some olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic and some chilli flakes and mix it all together. Its quite yummy, quick to make, healthy and fairly cheap.

  4. Sarah have you tried the filling and healthy day on ww? bit like slimming world in some ways but might help with the hungry days, or try having 29 a day as that used to be the minimum

    1. two great ideas! When the plan changed in the new year dropping to 26 points was optional, you could stick to your original 29. Might be worth trying that then dropping a point each month for three months so you are back down to 26 x

    2. Thanks Sarah, I have had a look at healthy & filling days on WW and will give that a go if I am still struggling, I switched to WW cos I was being too naughty for SW but it seems you can't be as naughty on Pro Points as you could on the old points system!

      I am going to stick with 26 a day for now and see how I get on, I didn't use any extra yesterday and I won't need to today so hopefully my body is adjusting to less food and the weight will start to come off again! xx
