First attempt at the @pinchofnom KFC zinger burger last night. Was actually really good although my Dorito mix didn't cover the chicken all that much 😣

Finally got out for my first run since October. Struggled since then as I picked up a tendon injury at the Birmingham half marathon, happy that it held up yesterday and didn't hurt! Aching now though 😂😂

So, I’m not sure what to do about my weekly progress. If I post another pic of me you wouldn’t be able to see a difference, maybe even if they were a month apart.
However, I’m also not sure if it’s the best idea for people to see how much weight others can lose in a week as every person and every body is very different.
I’ve shared this week’s weight loss, but what is more important to me is I feel healthier, my body feels like it has a spring in it’s step and I’m pleased that I’m finally working towards my health goals in a way that feels healthy and manageable.
I’m still craving rubbish all of the time, I’ve woken up this morning not knowing how I’ll get through the day without a binge, but I know it takes time for a big change to become a habit. I just need to keep pushing through the days that don’t feel as easy.
Let me know what you think about progress pics/weigh ins. What do you think is a healthy way to share?
Day 15. This morning I attempted sweet potatoes pancakes with only 1 egg then egg whites..didn't go to plan..complete fail... So not sure if its me tampering with recipe or i need to buy new non stick frying pans 🤔. Did not let my failed breakfast get me down had a great day on plan 100%. Also did my 1st little run since July 💪. #slimmingworld#bodymagic#foodoptimising
Breakfast..0% natural yogurt with fruit.
Dinner..burgers using Jd seasoning mix.
Roasted vegetables and fry light oven chips.
A..350mls semi skimmed milk.
A..30g cheddar cheese.
B.. 60g wholmeal roll.
Green tea 1
If you’ve followed me for a while you know my one true love will always be @papajohnsuk pizza! Stuffed crust, all the cheese is the only way! Tonight we are reunited with a Tom Hardy classic, winning in its finest form! I hope you’re all having an amazing weekend..😏🍕
Unplanned coffee/mini shopping trip tonight! Where’s there is carrot cake on offer, I need to eat the carrot cake! Don’t think this will stop me having pizza as a weigh day treat as I’ll just class this as my pudding.. Remember when your mum used to tell you to eat all your main before you got pudding when you were little? Feel like I’m putting my middle finger to that rule tonight! Cake first, pizza later..🙄😂
Recently had a HUGE influx of followers (thank you and welcome!) and just wanted to show my first week loss.
Yes you've read correctly, I lost -0.5 pound on my first week. I wanted to show this to people who aren't big losers or have big losses and to say you aren't alone! It took me a month to get my half stone award. It's took me 61 weeks to get my 10 stone award.
As I was over 25 stone, I was allowed upto 25 syns a day and I tried this for the first week. My body clearly didn't like those extra syns! So I limited myself to 20 for the next week and still found it was too much. Third week I tried 15 and simply stuck to 15 as a maximum from that time! I get asked if I use 15 syns daily and my answer is that it varies. I don't treat 15 syns as a challenge, I just have what I want. Most days I finish under 10 and I'm happy with that! It's all about control, I try to fill up on fruits and veggies (especially mushrooms and butternutsquash😍) and then eat my protein, then carbs.
I'm trying to post more about me and my reasons why for weight loss. I'll do another post tomorrow 😇

#facetofacefriday who new I had a pointy chin eh? 7st difference between these pics. I remember feeling so amazing having lost two stone in that first pic and it being the first time I wore a skirt in longer than I could remember. My journey hasn’t always been smooth but life can be crap sometimes and either way it’s better to be in control of your health through tough times and having something positive to focus on than let it all go to pot. For anyone who is struggling ..... ‘Forgive Yourself, You Are Not Perfect. Show Yourself Grace, You are Still Learning. Show Yourself Patience, You Are On A Journey.’
#throwbackthursday - my love for a black high waisted skirt has not changed but the smile on my face has. Pretending to be confident > actually feeling confident. Feeling insufficient > knowing my worth. If I could go back I wouldn’t waste a minute worrying about what I looked like or what other people thought and I’d make sure I drilled it into my head that I didn’t need to lose weight to feel like a valid person ❤️
3lb loss! THREE WHOLE FRICKINGGGG POUND LOSS! I am now 9 stone 13lbs & I am the lightest I’ve probably ever ever been in my whole life apart from that one time I popped out of my mum.. I don’t really want to lose anything at all now because I’m happy with the number I see. I just want to become more toned & strong.. Off I go to YouTube to watch exercise videos I can follow in the gym!🤓💪🏼😍

THROW BACK THURSDAY. It’s crazy looking at old pictures and trying to remember what it felt like to carry 9 extra stone and a lot of insecurities around with me everyday. I know I say this is all of these posts but the message still stands. There is nothing wrong with how I looked in the before picture (apart from my fashion sense 🤪) what matters is whether or not you are happy and I wasn’t. The pictures are just a representation of weight loss not worth. Losing weight does not make you a better person and it does not increase your worth. Now that it’s the new year there will be an influx of members in group. Please don’t see them as a burden. Help them, support them, encourage them because we’re all there because we don’t find weightloss easy. And if you are reading this and you are new to slimming world, welcome to the insta fam!
