Progress Update week 8

So I didn’t have the best week, I put on 2lb.

I know exactly what happened so it’s not a surprise, I had a bad Monday evening where I just couldn’t stop snacking followed by pancake night, I didn’t do SW friendly ones and even added plenty of Nutella.

All day on Thursday I had full intentions of coming home after weigh in and finishing off the Nutella, but instead I did 10 minutes on the bike. My plan this week is to do SP, hoping of a bit of a weight loss boost this week as I really want to get to my one stone award.

Wish me luck!!


Progress update – a good week!

Woohoo!! I am very happy with a 2lb loss this week which takes me to 12lb lost over 7 weeks.

It’s been a good week, I’ve eaten more speed food, mainly veg. Love carrots and sprouts so have kept it simple this week with meat, veg and sweet potato mash meals. Weetabix (HeB) and semi skimmed milk (HeA) for breakfast most days with a ham omelette and spaghetti hoops on the weekend. 

I did have one day where I slipped up, I just felt hungry and wanted to pick so ended up inhale 24 syns on that day. But it just shows that one bad day out of 7 doesn’t have to be a disaster!

So my aim for this week is another 2lb off to get my one stone award, so let’s do it!!

SW Pizza

Oh wow this was so nice and filling, this is the first time I’ve done it and I will definitely be doing it again, especially for only 9.5 syns.


  • 2 Weight Watchers wraps (HeB + 5.5 syns)
  • Tomato purée
  • 50g Mozzarella (HeA)
  • 25g Cheddar light
  • Sliced peppers
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Diced onions
  • Asda Cooked chicken pieces
  • Asda Cooked sweet chilli shredded beef


  • Spread tomato purée between the wraps and again on top
  • Spread the cheese
  • Spread the rest of the ingredients and cook in the oven on 180 for about 10-15 minutes

Sooo where do I start…..

My names Carys and I started my weight loss journey back in January, January 5th to be exact. I walked through the doors of my local Slimming World group for the 3rd time but this time felt so determined to do it!

I lost about 3 and a half stone about 4 years ago just before I met my partner (so I’m basically totally blaming him for my 5 stone gain haha). This time I am in the mindset to see my journey through to the end, I started a FB blog and it’s really helped me to stay on track over the last 6 weeks so thought I’d start a full blown blog.

I’ll post progress updates, recipes and just what going on generally with my life, ups and downs. Hopefully this will help you with your own journey, to know you’re not the only one going through it!

Please interact where you like and looking forward to helping!
