Day 1

So, I went along and rejoined Slimming World last night, and what a difference from last Monday it was!  Rachel’s enthusiasm and positivity is so infectious, and I am totally determined that this is it – I can do this!  I came away from group with a smile on my face and a spring in my step, and I’m already looking forward to next week!  My starting weight is 16 stone 8.5lb – not as bad as I’d feared, but there’s a long road ahead.

Yesterday’s food was lovely as well.  I had a couple of boiled eggs for breakfast, some pasta mixed with cooked chicken, mushrooms, red onions, cherry tomatoes and some fat free fromage frais for lunch, and then dinner was an old Weight Watchers meal called Eastern Salmon, which is a salmon fillet in a honey, soy sauce and Chinese five spice marinade.  We had it served with sautéed new potatoes and a mixture of veg, and it was awesome.  I finished the day on just 0.5 Syns, simply because I was full after dinner and was also tired and wanted an early night, so I just didn’t need to use any more than that.  And the things I’m most proud of – no alcohol at all, and no Clover with my new potatoes!

Day 1 is done.  Bring on day 2!
