Yea, another weight loss.

This is day three of my Slimming World Fast Forward Plan.

It was a miserable, horrible day yesterday (13 February 2022). The day you sit inside, turn the TV on and cosy on down with a TV box set and munching a bag of Maltesers or Haribo.  That will not happen, much to my disappointment. I am still strongly resounded to stay on plan and reach my one-week weight loss goal. As always, my personal goal is to keep going, focus on my successes, and learn from failures. Taking each new day and weight loss with grace and… who am I kidding? I want to lose 7 pounds this week.  I have stagnated on my weight loss journey, so my consultant suggested the Slimming World Fast Forward Plan. The current numbers are therefore looking good. It seems to work.

Now The downside of the Fast Forward Plan so far.

It was Sunday yesterday, which means roast dinner was sitting around the dining room table with the family. The Slimming World Fast Forward Plan accommodates a roast but is a very sad roast.

  • 100g roast chicken, without skin
  • 175g potatoes boiled or mashed
  • 70g carrots
  • 75g Savoy cabbage
  • 75g cauliflower florets
  • Free option of 150g of broccoli

I have to tell you. It’s not a lot when it’s on the plate. Especially as the rest of the family had big juicy roast potatoes cooked with the chicken and a mountain of vegetables and gravy. I don’t enjoy being on a diet. The benefits of being on plan and losing weight are the goals. However, sometimes I have to question if it is worth it. I don’t want to be on a diet for the rest of my life, and watching my family eat a full meal while I consumed a tiny portion of it seemed so unfair.

I heard a quote a while ago from Tony Robbins, “Nothing tastes as good as slim feels”. As I eat my small meal, I think about these words.

Slimming world and the family

Most of our meals are home-cooked and adapted to Slimming World menus.  My family is very supportive.  We cook with Fry-light, have increased our fruit and vegetable intake.  We only have low-calorie treats in the house.  The Bliss Bars are a big hit, and only 3 syns each. The salted caramel bliss bars are a big hit in my household. It is like a marathon without nuts.

Am I still enjoying the plan?

Yes, I have to say I am. I have learnt that I have steadily increased my portion sizes without realising it on my regular slimming world eating plan. I have also not included the odd Syn, for example, gravy on my dinner or tomato ketchup on the Friday Fakeaway days.

So, onwards and upwards to Day Four

Day Two – Slimming World Fast Forward Plan

Day Two – Slimming World Fast Forward Plan

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.
