Lots of people know that I've been on a journey, a very long journey with Slimming World! I've been doing it for 3 years, and that's not a problem because it's not a diet it's a lifestyle, but this year I have only been maintaining my loss. The loss I've maintained this year is 3 stone (52lbs) and while I'm pleased with that I still need to lose more, a lot more!
I had become complacent and I know I won't be happy going another year with only maintaining and not losing, for that reason I've decided to keep myself on track by sharing my weight loss highs and lows, ups and downs (hopefully more downs than ups on the scales!) on my blog.
I weigh on a Thursday evening so blogging my week and, I hope, my weight loss, along with recipes and tips, on a Friday will help me to remain focused. This is something I could have started at the beginning of 2016 but why wait when I want to focus NOW, I would love to lose a stone (14lbs) by Christmas.
I had a very disappointing gain this week, 1lb in fact, and I was upset because I had tried so hard and really thought I was going to have a good loss. This post would probably have been a lot different if I had of had a loss, it would even have been different if I'd written it this morning when I was still feeling dejected if I'm honest. Right now though I'm feeling fine about it and I'm looking forward to the week ahead :)
One of the things I'll me making to help me be prepared and stay on track are delicious muffins, yes muffins that will keep me on plan! The muffins I'm making are 1.5 SYNS each or 4 muffins for a Healthy Extra B choice, I normally have them as a HEB and eat 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening because they are so filling.
To make them you will need:
4 beaten eggs
1 toffee Mullerlite
8 tbsp sweetener
4 cap fulls of salted caramel flavouring:
