Weigh in journey record

I weigh in on Saturday mornings, my slimming world journey started on the 21/11/15. 
After giving birth on 20/07/15 until the 21/11 I had lost 23lbs I'll be honest 7.6lbs of that was my little boy, Some water retention and a small amount through diet. I followed the weight watchers plan as I had done previously, successfully too I might add I lost 6 stone (84lbs) but this time it just didn't work for me with the time restrictions I had with a new baby counting points and weighing out food wasn't really an option. 

Posting my weight is a big thing for me but if this is going to be an honest journey it's necessary (I am honest with all aspects) 

21/11 - 15.7 Start weight 
28/11- 0.5lbs off
05/11- 3.5lbs off
12/11- 2lbs off
19/11- SS
24/11- 0.5lbs off (weighed in early due to xmas)
02/01/16- 0.5lbs off (normal weigh day) 
09/01- 3lbs off

Total loss - 10lbs

Happy new year

So 2016 is here😳 wow I cannot believe how much I achieved last year, I passed my theory test finally, became a senior in my job and also had my gorgeous little boy. 
If I could do that the sky is the limit for this year I am so excited, which brings me onto my goals for 2016: 
• To pass my driving test and get a car, have already restarted my lessons just before xmas πŸ‘πŸ»
• To get to a happy and healthy weight, I have an idea of where I want to get to but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself. I'm going to take it a lb a time. 
• To further my career, whatever that may entail.
• To continue to enjoy my little man and watch him grow and become his own little man.

Most importantly I'm going to catch whatever life throws at me and work with it! 

Here's to another amazing yearπŸŽ‰

Poorly babies and lockdown

So my little man picked up a cold, his first 😞 it has been horrible truly heart wrenching I want to take his cold and have it for ever just so he wouldn't be sick. Unfortunately that's not possible so life has been hard.
I've had very little sleep in the last 5 nights, I mean the last few weeks had been abit up an down but that was nothing compared.
I've been sticking to the slimming world plan, but due to leaving the house twice since it started body magic isn't going well I was hoping to start walking at least 30 mins a day. I'm not making excuses life happens, my son is more important.

It's just abit shit really, trying to up my speed intake this week to hopefully lose something.

In all his drooling goodness πŸ’™πŸ’™

Two weeks

So for nearly two weeks I have been Instagraming pics of everything I've eaten pretty much, I've become a little obsessed haha. 

I am that girl who finds something new and runs with it be it a new item of clothing, lipstick, nail varnish or new toy of some sort (I'm talking you phones, gadgets etc nothing funny guys haha).

As I am currently unable to join a sw group I'm feeling like this is kind of my group, you know when you go to be weighed at group and in those few minutes before, your terrified something will go wrong. I kind of feel like that! 

This week I've noticed a few things that I'd like to talk about:
I have an issue with portion control, sometimes I look at my plate and feel full aha it's literally a joke, I over estimate everything. I am trying to make a conscious effort to stop this but also to stop when I'm full which tends to be after half to 2/3 of my meal. 
I want to do this. I feel like after a few months of my head just not being in it I'm slowly turning a corner, after all this is a journey so I'm sure things will change I just need to learn to deal with these things better! 

Edit: Today is my weigh in day, I have lost 3.5lbs and am feeling really positive and happy about that! So I shall continue I have 1.5lbs to lose to get into the next stone bracket. My next post will be talking about my goals. 

Thanks

Makeup

I have a serious makeup habit that has been culled by my current maternity leave smp situ (let's not even get started on that) so I have been 'shopping my stash' 
That lipstick is gorgeous Rimmel apocalips in Stellar. It is very much a Christmas red ❤️
