This is day two of my Slimming World Fast Forward Plan.
Slimming World Fast Forward Plan – Saturday 12 February 2022
- Starting Weight: 86.2
- Today’s Weight 85.8
- Total Loss: 0.4 kg.
Yea, a weight loss.
Without having the correct groceries in the house, it wasn’t easy to decide what to have for breakfast. Additionally, I am a celiac (admittedly; I have fallen off the wagon, suffering the symptoms of gluten in my body and trying to rectify the situation), and some of the food options are gluten heavy. So today for breakfast I had two gluten-free Weetabix and not the regular Weetabix. I must make swaps.
This plan is rigid with a family, so I had to make various meals for my evening meal. I had mince, onions and tomatoes as a casserole and rice, and the family had burgers and chips. Same ingredients but cooked differently. My treat was a Cadbury light hot chocolate and a packet of skips crisp. Delicious.
Do I feel hungry?
I must be honest. Yes, I felt hungry. The cupboard with all my slimming world treats was yelling my name. It would have been so easy to get up and get the goodies. I have such a sweet tooth.
Why have I not taken a treat?
“This is going to sound awful, mean and fuelled by jealousy.”
I haven’t run to the treat box yet because of my jealousy towards another group member. I know this is mean, but it’s the truth.
There is a member in my group who has massive weight loss. The first time she was a member, she lost 10 pounds in her first week. I was thrilled for her. The following week, she lost 5 pounds and then 7 pounds. Each week, she had massive losses. There were some weeks when she put on, but you can count those on the one hand. She was slimmer of the week, slimmer of the month. You get the idea. She reached a three-stone loss in about three months and then left the club.
Two weeks ago, she re-joined the club. She had put on the weight she lost, plus two stones. I know she is sad about that, and I want to support her weight loss. In her first week, she lost 13 pounds. In her second week, she lost 3 pounds and was slimmer of the week. Please don’t get me wrong, she is a lovely lady and brings a lot of fun and laughter to the group. It’s just her success that I am jealous of, and I know it is my issue, not hers. I have been in the slimming world since December 2019 and still have 20 pounds to go. I plodded on with half a 0.2kg or 0.4kg. Finally reaching 22 kg over two years.
I told you this was selfish, but it is my truth. The treats will stay in the box, and I am staying on the Slimming World Fast Forward Plan. It’s only seven days, and this is day 2.
