Setting Goals for Sep/ Oct 2014 & Weigh In

Weigh In & Healthy Eating

I'm happy to report that I was down 3.5lbs on Thursday evening, so I was happy with that.. its a good start to getting the "happy holiday pounds" back off.

I must admit, I feel a lot better in myself this week after eating well and drinking lots of water, my belly in working order and the bloated feeling has gone and my skin seems/ feels clearer and best of all I've taken back control.

I know that sounds silly when we're talking about food. Bit when I eat badly its a downward spiral for me, the more crap I eat, the more I crave/want it, the worse I feel and the Guilts,
OH the guilts, they're just awful and so not worth it really!!

But when I'm on plan, eating well, deciding and planning my daily meals, I feel good and have no guilt that I'm saving my syns to get my sugar fix everyday.. Its a better way to be and it suits me better, it keeps my mood swings at bay and its less of a headmelt for me since food is constantly on my mind. Its great to say that I'm loosing weight and still eating chocolate everyday.

Resetting Goals

So I've been thinking that maybe I should reset a few goals for myself for the month ahead to help keep me motivated and focused

1. Stay within my syns everyday and on the Slimming World plan.

2. Get out and walk, even if just for 20 minutes

3. Look for a circuit class/ boot camp or spinning class in my area and book in (I think I need the structure of booking in back in my life)

5. Get my 1 stone cert, 1.5 stone cert, Club 10 award

6. Try new recipes and food.


13 weeks to Christmas, my goal is to buy a gorgeous dress for my Christmas party in a size smaller.
Have you set yourself some goals or targets to get you through the next few months?

Weight lost to date: 4lbs
Onwards and Downwards, the Slimming World way :)


  1. Hi I've lost over 5 and a half stone with Slimming World so I know that it works. Your goals look realistic and achievable. Good luck with them : )

  2. Good luck with your goals and staying on track. I am back from holiday now so time for me to refocus too! I already have a dress i want to be in for xmas i find its good motivation and if it fits beforehand then even better

  3. I think from reading all your weight loss posts that we're very similar with food attitudes. I feel sometimes like just throwing the whole lot out the window and being fat and getting used to it, but the way you keep plugging away at it no matter what really inspires me. Clean slate here and I'm going to join you in the challenge to be a size smaller for Christmas. Good luck Vicki xx
