Starting Slimming World shopping list

I'm on quite a lot of Facebook groups related to Slimming World and have joined up to Slimming World online. When I first started, I was kind of dropped in the deep end as I didn't have anyone to ask basic questions to so I've asked other members online for help when needed.

When I first started, I wasn't sure what I would need on my first shopping list so it was one of the questions I put to the people of Facebook and these were the answers everyone seemed to agree on as well as a few I have added myself.

My Slimming World Meals

I thought I would share a couple of the meals I've had on Slimming World since I started.
Although I don't take pictures of every meal, I feel these meals are some of my favorites so just wanted to show off what I've had while losing weight!


Firstly, I had a jacket potato with cottage cheese mixed with chives, 2 slices of ham and a large beetroot salad.

We are weaning!

Sunday (last week) marked our first day of weaning. Something that has been put to the back of my thoughts for so long. It marks the first day of my last ever weaning journey. Saturday marked the last day of my exclusively breastfeeding journey. It is a bitter sweet feeling. My final baby girl is growing up and whats more, she was more than ready for it.

First Time At The Park

We've (L, R and myself) been to the park quite a lot recently after dropping T off at nursery. Unfortunately, I seem to have been hit with some bad luck in the phone department and every time we got their, my phone decided to go from 40/50% to completely dead (oh the joys of an iPhone) so I never actually managed to get any pictures of L playing. Friday was our lucky day!

Celery isn't an alternative to chocolate.

I've been craving junk food. It's not been easy. I want chocolate, crisps or toast covered in a thick layer of peanut butter but that isn't going to happen.

My New Years Resolution

Today I bit the bullet and joined Slimming World.




I've heard so many brilliant weight loss stories from people who have done Slimming World and I want to start my own. I've always had problems with my weight, never fitted in my correct BMI. I have always made excuses up about how this is because I'm rather top heavy and it doesn't take that into account but I can honestly say, I don't think my bust is adding on the extra four stone I am carrying above my ideal weight.

Because of this I've decided that I will track my weight loss on my blog along side posting Slimming World friendly recipes I find and like the sound of (or have tried and tested). 

I am currently the biggest I've ever been. Having back to back pregnancies never really gave me the chance to lose any weight in between which means now I have a saggy "mummy tummy" which is slowly filling out. 

With an upcoming holiday, it has given me the push to drop a dress size and feel ever so slightly more confident in a bikini. Unfortunately, the thought of a bikini still gives me slight anxiety however I'm hoping with my initial aim of a 2 stone loss before the holiday, that shall give me the boost I need to stop worrying about offending others with my wobbly bits. 

Although I won't be posting weekly weight loss photo's, I shall choose these photo's as my motivational photo's.

This one as, although I am a UK16, this dress is a UK22 and fits me perfectly.

And this one, from when I used to be a size 12 and thinking at the time that I was fat. 

I am starting my weight loss journey at 13 stone. My aim is to reach 11 stone by May with a change of diet and exercise. 
Can I do it?
