Slimming World Update – Week 86/87

Hi chaps

Yes its me and yes I’ve been silent of late and yes there’s been a really good reason for that (or not a reason at all depending on how you look at it!) Last weeks post didn’t happen, because to be fair to me, last weeks weigh in didn’t happen. We had some news, which I’m not going to go in to again (you can read about it here if you’re interested) that basically threw my head out of the window. I think we survived on takeout and oven chips last week, but I don’t really care that much.

Anywho, I told myself I was going to knock all that on the head come the weekend but that didn’t happen. In fact if anything it got worse. I wasn’t just eating food I would never normally (hello bread my old friend, how have you been?) I’ve been gorging on anything and everything. Even things I’m not enjoying, things I don’t really like or really want. If I was to use the Swan metaphor I was remaining calm on top and stuffing my face madly underneath. I know WHY I did this. Why my behaviour slipped back to emotional state I’ve not experienced in a loooong time. I’m not proud of it. Using food as some kind of gastronomic drug to soothe and self harm all at once. Some people drink themselves into oblivion for the same reasons, but it seems my panacea of choice will always be food.

Ho hum. The fact that I only gained 1.5lb over the past two weeks has astounded me. I’m back to having only lost 6 stone exactly, but I can live with that. What I can’t live with is the way that eating as though the end is nigh is making me feel physically. My mind may be placated, but my body’s in uproar! Basically I feel like shit. My skin’s terrible and I feel so lethargic. The body’s no fool, it knows what’s going on! So, as much as counting syns and being back with my head fully in the game might be asking a lot at the moment, I will be reverting to more ‘normal’ eating this week, if only to get some energy back. And right now, I need all the energy I can get!

Plus I’ve just ordered the coolest t-shirt in a size 14-16 and I’d really like to be able to wear it!

Hell yeah!

Hell yeah!

  1. You’re doing amazing! 6 stone is not to be sniffed at. I’m having issues being disciplined enough to lose a few lb’s! All I need to do is see something unhealthy and I feel like I’m gagging for it!

      Thanks honey. It’s not easy at the best of times, and when my head IS in the game, but when I’m all over the shop I can’t tell you how supreme the effort is. Why do you think you need to lose weight? You look pretty gorgeous to me as you are. If you don’t want it enough it’s just not going to happen (Ive found). Be kind to yourself and ask yourself who you’re wanting to lose weight for xxxx here if you need a chat!

      • I want to reach a point where I feel healthy eenough to have another baby. Had a few issues last time and don’t want to be in that position again. Would also be nice to fit in some of the dresses I have in my wardrobe

        • mrssavageangel says:

          Well that’s a great goal to aim for. And like you say its about being healthy. Don’t forget, just because you had issues in pregnancy last time that doesn’t mean you’ll have them again, whatever weight you are. And vice versa. You’ll do it when you’re ready sweets x

  2. Oh I love that t-shirt! Wishing you well for this week x

  3. What an amazing weight loss so far! I am in awe and really need to use this as inspiration to get off my butt. I think for a couple weeks of emotional eating 1.5lbs is ok, you’ve had a tough time, who can blame you?!
    That t-shirt is ace by the way!!

    • mrssavageangel says:

      Thanks. It really needs to stop now though. Its not doing anything other than make me feel rotten now! Sorry for the delay in replying btw, your comment went into the spam file by mistake!

  4. Never, ever write only in front of weight loss… 6 stone is such a massive achievement and I doth my hat to you chick, what an incredible journey! It has been a roller coaster recently and granted in the same shoes, I would have reached for the carbs too… I love bread! You will get back on track though. Don’t feel guilty… use that energy and get yourself back on the horse!! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday – I hope we can all inspire you to crack on through! Slimming World is a great diet, still amazes me what people can eat on it… you can do it chick, you have come too far!! Sim xx

    • mrssavageangel says:

      Thank you my lovely. I sometimes forget what an achievement it is, because I still see so far ahead of me to go. But you’re right and I am feeling much more positive this week. Its a great link up too – cant believe its taken me so long to link up! Thanks for hosting!

  5. Six stone is an AMAZING achievement – we’re all allowed slip ups now and then. I’m sure you’ll be feeling more yourself again soon. Good luck! #weightlosswednesday
