To sum up my week, It’s been good… loving bringing a few bread items back into my diet.. the tuna wrap was such a treat. Bought a couple of ww cookbooks from The works and it’s given me some recipe inspiration so a bit of cooking needed for the next week. Hopefully the scales will be kind in the morning,  but nevertheless, the little changes I’m making (recording everything, using skimmed milk, weighing portions etc) have got to have an impact on the scales at some point… we shall see!!!

Catch up.. week 2 on WW

 A week of the new regime, minus 2 days in Buxton but still sticking to plan (cream scones a few vinos thrown in – counterbalanced  by plenty of walking) and I’m still 1lb down… 4lb in 2 weeks so very optimistic….

This week I’ve been prepping away to make sure I’m not tempted..

Day 1- fruit breakfast, egg and bacon salad and chicken ratatouille 

Day 2 crumpets and fruit, seafood pasta and quark, cottage pie with cauliflower and potato mash

Day 3 Berries and crumpets, left over cottage pie, fish and chipsDay 6 (2 days not photographed as in public eating and couldn’t take the photos!!!) scrambled egg on 2 thins, Sunday roast and jelly and fruit with a ww yogurtDay 7 cheese and ham toastie, fresh fruit and jelly, quorum burger and low fat chips with a home made salsaroll on week 3…….

Day 7 More fruit and veg wanted? Yes please

Breakfast
Melon, grapes, kiwi and a banana

Lunch

Spinach, lettuce, Cucumber, tomatoes, red pepper, 1 boiled egg, 2 bacon medallions and some low fat cottage cheese

Dinner

Ratouille with courgettes, onion, mushrooms, leek, peppers, tinned toms, black eyed beans, chickpeas chicken stock

I think there is a strong possibility I may sprout leaves!!! I’ve drank pints of water (and not a drop of wine), had no extra off limits treats, just a bowl of freshly popped corn and an additional banana. 

👍

3lb down, the ‘WWay’ to go!

No count

Well it’s took me a while to get my head round things! I’ve ordered cookbooks and guides from the weightwatchers site so hopefully I can soon get back to coooking diet dinners. But I’ve persevered!!!

Have opted for a while to use the ‘no count’ plan. It’s sort of slimming world but tweaked. Slimming bread IS allowed which is great; so bacon butties are back on the menu! All fruit, veg and lean meat are free so basically it’s a healthy meal plan where you count your treats.

Exploring the app, there is so much information on there. The ability to photograph a product barcode is fabulous as I can never get caught out when I’ve my phone on me. The App also has a connect section where the community gather and share stories… it’s so inpsirational, and with the encouraging emails and personal messages left on the app, and my fitbit linked in so earning points and getting additional points, I am really impressed… it is putting SW to shame! 

I’ve lost 3lb in a week, and can’t weight to see what the next few weeks hold!

The wicked water works

Day 3

I am drinking so much water in the day it is disrupting my routine!! I’m so used to the general feeling of dehydration it’s taking some time to get used to..

But still very driven… panicked tonight when my planned dinner of soup ( cauliflower and cheese) had to be quashed cause the OH had thrown out the cauliflower… Quickly set about searching the ww site for a low pointed, quick meal and came up with bolognese and pasta (the bolognese having oodles of courgette, carrot, mushrooms, frozen cauli in) .

Spooned up a smaller portion than I would have eaten on SW so am hoping my portion control, along with the pondfull amount of water I’m drinking, is going to be the key to my success 🤞

No point wonders…. fruit and veg!! 

Lunch-Tuna salad

Includes: lettuce, tuna, tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, spring onion, 1 egg, a few olives, capers and balsamic vinegar. just 4 tasty points.

Breakfast-Fruity breakfast
 

Breakfast: melon, banana, grapes and a little defrosted red fruit 0 points.

Dinner-Asda stir fry
 

Asda chilli sauce, garlic and chilli stir fry, egg fried noodles and extra mange tout. 4 portion which makes lunch for tomorrow. Just 9 points.

I’m back in business, back to chopping, peeling, boiling, weighing, measuring, and watching every morsel that goes into my mouth…. I’m going for the ‘greengrocers gut’ look, fruit and veg galore, with plenty of water (been on the toilet most of the day!). May only be day 2 but I’m in the zone!!! I have had 2 small wines but have measured them and they are only 3 points a glass…. (120ml) hallelujah!!! so onward and upward… here I come!! 

Snack-Wine measure

2 x small 120 mls of merlot 6very worthy points

End of the day:

Day 2

Flippin heck, I’ve only gone and jumped ship!!!

I pondered for a good 30 minutes then took the drastic step and went over to the dark side!!! I’m pretty scared, it’s new territory and I’m totally lost at present but I’ll make it through I’m sure!!

I have come to the decision, I’m just a gannet!! I pile the freebies onto my plate and I have not been honestly accounting for a dash of mayo, an extra chocolate out the box… so something drastic had to happen.

My weight is sneakily creeping up (not helped by love of weekend alcohol) and I’m no spring chicken… the older I have got the more difficult it is to shift the pounds…

So for £12.95, I’ve committed to a month of online WW… still getting my head round the smart points but I have a quota (30 a day) and also a flexible 28 for use as and when needed. I have an online diary and know for me, recording it visibly works.. so maybe… possibly it’ll work… I’ll keep you posted of course!!!

Wish me luck 😬!!!
