This past week has been the first week completely back on Slimming World since Christmas.
Overall I am happy with how I faired over the festive period, I purposefully chose not to have any indulgences until Christmas Eve and then I let myself off the hook on Christmas Day and Boxing day to get straight back on plan for the rest of the week, up until New Years Eve night that is where I consumed a very beige looking meal – think all things Marks & Spencer party food!
Anyway the restraint I showed (if you could call it that) appeared to work as I managed to loose half a pound taking my overall weight loss to a stone since re-joining 6 weeks after the birth of Judah. I do have an overall target in mind however, I am conscious that with breast feeding, and the zero time I have to exercise (apart from the usual chasing Nathanael around) I might not get there at the moment.
That all being said, I am content to be back to what I was pre pregnancy, with a healthy BMI and not feeling hungry all the time which is what I felt when I breastfed my eldest, of course then my go to options was cake, chocolate and oh yes more cake!
With the new year I thought I would share my main meals by taking photos of them all so you can see how they turned out!
