So this week I lost a pound!
It's okay, was a little disappointing but it's still a pound off in the right direction before Christmas and I did enjoy the Ikea meatballs earlier in the week, so it's a realistic loss and I am 29.5lbs lighter this Christmas.
We had our Slimming World Christmas meal today - well, we tried! It was a brave man to tell 17 hungry Slimming World members that they wouldn't be having their Christmas lunch due to a burst water main in the food area! Alternative arrangements were quickly made and we enjoyed a nice lunch together elsewhere, although minus the turkey.
I've been thinking how I'm going to 'manage' Slimming World over the festive season. My plan is to stay pretty much 'on plan' but relax on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. I'm not going to go mad and gorge myself silly but I am going to enjoy a few festive foods and not feel guilty. I want to come out the other side of Christmas, without a big gain!
I'm not buying in the panettone, stollen, mince pies, cake etc as I'm the main culprit for eating it, so I'm simply not going to have it there to tempt me. I am instead going to enjoy the crackers and cheese and stuffing and bread sauce alongside all the healthy stuff at proper meal times. I'd love to get into the next stone range and even lose a pound over Christmas if I can but I'm not going to be too hard on myself if I don't.
It will be my first Christmas in years where a mince pie won't have passed my lips!
Hope you have a lovely weekend - I'm house cleaning and tree decorating so best get on!
