I’m back to publishing my meal plan this week because I’ve got a wedding to go to in just over four weeks and my dress is too small, so once again I’m trying to lose a few pounds.
I did buy the dress in a size smaller than my usual dress size, and I think that if I manage between 7 and 10 pounds it should fit. I can get it on and fasten it up but it isn’t very flattering just now.
So this week I’ll be following the Slimming World plan (again) and am hoping to have shifted at least half a stone by 10th July, though the actual numbers aren’t really a goal this time, it’s just the dress.
This week then, I’m looking at a menu like this:
Overnight oats: 35g porridge oats topped with a fat free yogurt and frozen berries or fresh fruit. Leave in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning. This is really filling which surprised me really because 35g of oats isn’t much at all. I sometimes add sweetener in the morning depending on what fruit I’ve used.
2 Weetabix with semi skimmed milk, topped with banana
Bacon, Sausage, Egg, Mushrooms and beans (fat cut off the bacon and syn-free sausages)
Jacket potatoes with tuna, lemon and pepper
Low fat Super Noodles
crust free quiche
Fajitas (everyone else at home eats them with the wraps, I wrap mine in Iceberg leaves)
Chilli con carne
Salmon stir fry
Sausage, mash and beans
Tuna pasta bake
I’ll also be trying to drink more water and move a little bit more too. Not sure I’ll be using the gym membership I pay for (whoops) but I’ll perhaps walk the dog a little further each day or even walk the kids the 2.5 miles home from school if it’s nice.
Snack-wise it’s be fruit, fruit and more fruit and one little treat in the evening – all counted towards my syn allowance of course!
I’m linking up to Sim’s Weight Loss Wednesday and Hannah’s Blogging to Jogging. With any luck reading the other bloggers goals and achievements will provide a little extra motivation.
Until next week …
