Slimming World Weigh In #15
It's been a bit topsy-turvy this week. My husband had a hip replacement on Wednesday and he does all the shopping and cooking, so I was thrown in to prepare my own meals. What with looking after a toddler and visiting until late in the evening I went slightly off plan. Not too bad but then there was Easter. I stupidly bought myself a white chocolate sheep from Lidl. I just love white chocolate and it was my treat for all the hard work I was doing.
How Am I Doing This Week?
Surprisingly I have maintained my weight, so all the hard work has countered the chocolate and other treats. I did measure myself though. I feel slimmer. My tummy is definitely flatter. I haven't actually lost any dress sizes as I just squeezed into my clothes and only wore stretchy trousers. I went on a diet when I just couldn't squeeze in anymore and would have had to go out and buy new clothes. So I suppose I have lost 3 dress sizes if I had actually worn the right size. That's not bad in fifteen weeks. I have lost six inches from my waist. That makes me feel really good and spurs me on.
What Have I Eaten This Week?
Eggs (two boiled)
Salmon, salad with mango and pasta
Chicken and salad sandwich on wholemeal bread with Laughing Cow cheese
Tuna and salad sandwich on wholemeal bread with Laughing Cow cheese
Chicken soup and corn on the cob
Roast Chicken dinner
Pizza chicken, brussel sprouts and chips
Bacon, cauliflower and cheese and grilled tomatoes
Hunters chicken, sprouts and chips
Slow cooked chicken leg with Slimmers World mushroom sauce, peas and pasta
Slimmers World Thai curry ready meal
Crayfish noodles and green salad
Chicken rice, broccoli, peas and corn on the cob
Pom Bear crisps (I have them for my grandson but he's not visiting for 2 weeks so I had some) 4 Syns/15g bag
White chocolate sheep for Easter
Total Syns this week = 70 plus the chocolate, a guess at 30 Syns (ouch!)
Total weight loss = 1st 5.5lbs

I have had a few really nice meals this week, I especially liked the sandwiches using Laughing Cow spread instead of butter. That way keeping them Syn free by using the wholemeal bread and spread as healthy extras. The crayfish tails were a bit disappointing, not as flavoursome as I would have liked but the rice noodles were delicious.
The ready made Slimming World mushroom sauce from Iceland was so disappointing. I thought it would be great with pasta, but it was more like gravy and not enough mushroom flavour.
My best meal of the week is a French, rustic, chicken soup. It is full of flavour and very filling.
