Oops! I Let It Slip! #icandothis

No, not a big secret!

My weight.

After a real battle a couple of years ago, I managed to lose weight so well, using the Slimming World approach. I even posted weekly about how I was doing, and for a good 6-8 months after reaching my target weight I ‘maintained’ that weight, give or take a pound or two here or there.

Then I started to lapse… Work was stressful, home was full of craziness. And when I stress, I turn to food (I do wish I was a person who lost their appetite … it never happens!)

So there was still good, healthy eating happening… but in addition, the sweet and savoury snacks seemed to creep into my daily diet, rather a lot.

Oops!

And then the Easter holidays are always a sticking point for me… all those Chocolate eggs! I was good, I didn’t overbuy them. So the temptation was not there. (Well, there were a few, but they were the kids, though I may have helped them finish the eggs…)

We went away and ate LOADS of stuff. I didn’t worry, because it was enjoyment time. And I got out of the weighing myself regularly habit too.

I mentioned to Hubby Dearest, who enjoys eating out and takeaways a bit too much, the night before that I was going to have to get back to eating better soon…

Then, this morning I did that scale thing… and wished I hadn’t!

I had crept over the 10 stone mark. So I was around half a stone over where I really wanted to be! Eeek!

 

Then Hubby Dearest requested that I get a Macdonalds breakfast for him, and anyone else who wants it, on my way back from grocery shopping…! No!!!!! I refused to go, initially – I mean, the laziness!

But you know what… I caved. (I’m a big softie, you know!) Lil Man ordered pancakes and Hubby Dearest wanted his sausage and Egg McMuffin.

I got them and managed to stay on my healthy eating saddle… Got home and served them their naughty brekkies, and I had this.

I can do it… honestly!

And my aim is, with 4 weeks until the Annual Bloggers Bash, to get to as close to 9 1/2 stone as I can!

Though with the baking I like to do for the Bash, I’m not sure how I’ll do!!!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 30 #icandothis

It’s been a roller coaster of a week, emotionally, as you all know, what with funerals, and life-threatening accidents, then prolonged time off at home, with the threat of grazing too much… But here’s my food…There was convenience, a little naughtiness, and pancakes!

And how did I do? Well, I’m not gonna recommend the Stop The Motorway Diet, but …

I lost 2lbs!

So that is 25.5lb off with Slimming World, 30.5lb off in total, and I smashed my second Slimming World target!

As I said, I don’t recommend shock and emotion for weight loss in the long run… but it worked!

Now all of you have a wonderful week Peeps! Luck and love, and lots of lovely healthy food! ❤

Ritu’s Healthy Eating Week 29 – #icandothis

It was another week of emotional ups and downs. Birthdays, coping with loss, late nights, back to school..some element of cake, and lots of trying to be good, to counteract the naughtiness of the previous week.

Then I had a great time at Bhangra this week. 45 minutes of pure jumping around! I managed to get a friend to video us.. there’s me in the middle!

That! 45 minutes of that, with one short break in the middle lol!

And the results, you ask?

Well, I managed to maintain once again!

So that’s 23.5lb off with Slimming World, and 28.5lb off in total! That elusice 0.5lb is still haunting me! But I am happy!

Until next week Peeps…I still have more cake to eat this week!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 20 #icandothis

The weigh in before Christmas… Ooooh always one to dread! You kinda know Post Christmas is more or less a write-off, but the ones before are just as bad, with all the treats, and rich meals you tend to consume!

I had the second of my Christmas dinners too, this week, at my staff Christmas party along with a meal out with the family!

My Christmas dinner take 2!

A cheeky Pizza Hut!

And my usual food!

And the results this week…

I stayed the same! Phew!

But this has to be the win for me. I finally had the guts to dress up properly for my staff party, and the amount of people who noticed my weight loss and commented/complimented me was unreal! A real ego boost!!!

Here is a little progress picture.

Merry Christmas Peeps! Eat, Drink and be Merry!!! 🎄🎅❤

Ritu’s Healthy Eating -Week 16 #icandothis

Another week, another lot of naughty eating mixed in with plenty of good stuff!

This week I made two lots of soup, roasted pepper and tomato, and roasted veg soup. I ate a few portions over the week at lunch and froze plenty too!

Being as it was our anniversary weekend too, I had a takeaway… and over the week I have been a little sneaky… a few extra Maltesers here and there too!

But something must be going ok because…

I lost another 1lb!

2016-11-25_06-57-57

16lb off with Slimming World, and a total of 21lb! That’s a stone and a half!

Phew!

I’m so pleased with myself, I am off to eat Maltesers!!!
