New arrivals. Christine Avanti. Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salads author Christine Avanti explains how women and men can control their appetites and lose weight by avoiding the fake and processed foods that are actually making them fatter. Many women think that products labeled "fat-free," "sugar-free," or "lite" are the key to easy weight loss. Brilliant when its just you. But how sweet that Gemma noticed and sent me this lovely text. Smelling the BBQ blazing all day was tough for my resolve, but luckily there were plenty of fresh strawberries on sale to keep me out of the hefty Syn zone.
I only lost a measly 0.
Slimming World blog: One mum's VERY honest weight loss journey!
My top buys this week were some frozen hake fillets to make skinny fish and chips and soya beans to put in my soupy noodles. This week in group there were so many great recipes being shared. When you go to group you get to hear first hand what recipes other members have been trying and loving.
I ordered mine in 2 sizes to be on the safe side , but I ended up fitting in the smaller size — hurrah! I roasted cauli with cumin and chilli powder my fave thing then tossed with a mixed grain pouch, fresh cucumber and tomatoes.
I finished it off with a generous dollop of Syn-free cottage cheese. TIP Sumac is a delicious seasoning made from sumac berries. They use it a lot in the Middle East to finish salads. It really perked up the cottage cheese — try it! Walking I was forced into a little body magic this week because I was without the car.

The kids benefitted from walking to school, too, as it gave us all chance to wake up in the fresh air. This is the time when we get to see a preview of all the gorgeous goodies that will be on sale at Christmas in the supermarkets. Just 1lb!
I guess there are always going to be times where it is difficult to diet. I was in favour of denial and trying to have a super duper week to compensate… but, I was persuaded to go to a Saturday meeting. I felt a bit glum for a while, but thinking about it fairly pre-Slimming World this would have been a prime time to pile on a good few extra lbs, just in time for the holidays. A wedding in Germany drinking beer!! Lazy brekkies A real weekend luxury on Slimming World is a no-fry fry up. Berries are really great value at the mo, so I tried these yummy meringues with fresh strawberries and raspberries — delish!
Body Magic Being away from the office has meant more food treats ice creammmmm! Including a trek up into the hills in Frieburg in Germany and another uphill trek carrying Romilly piggy-back style up the Dales way in Kettlewell. Not sure this counted as my HE!! Annoyed I have reached a bit of a plateau. I felt really on high for ages afterwards. All that body magic walking up hills must have paid off. My breakfasts are now under control and I love tucking into a massive salad or jacket potato.
The fact that you can also eat pasta and rice on Extra Easy is a real bonus. My goal this week is tot get a good loss. I made this healthy slaw and grilled bacon and tomato combo this week. Sunny Sunday Romilly and I headed down to a festival this weekend in our local town. We kept it healthy with noodles and Thai-style skewers from one of the food stalls.
But I did choose a delicious scoop of blackcurrant ice cream as my Syn-ful treat for the day. Super soups The weather turned really cold again so I dug out this yummy carrot and cumin soup from the freezer. It was so fresh and tasty!
Picnic envy Giles and I went to an open air play with friends at the weekend. I took a V healthy picnic including this tasty potato salad. Yes, it worked! I knuckled down to some serious speed meals this week and the result… I lost 3. I celebrated with a good slab of choccy cake and a trip to the shops to upgrade my beach attire to a bikini.
Passar bra ihop
I got an extra boost of confidence from hanging out with nine other girlies and a good dose of sun and laughter is just what you need to get over any body issues. Bikini body As we all know, we all have a bikini body we just need to put one on and hey presto!

I felt pretty pleased that I dodged the bacon roll. Bread Tee hee, remember how I was going on about being so over bread… well, that Spanish tomato bread — oops! Spain has too much delicious food to choose from, including this amazing Burrata and giant tomato at Bestial on the Saturday night. So, the damage: I put on 2lbs on the hen do; in France self-catering, but swimming and playing tennis I gained 1lb; then, the wedding weekend added another 1lb.
I felt pretty fed up about the 1lb last week. I will have to try really hard to stick on plan this week to compensate. So far, so good… apart from a killer hangover and another wedding! I am feeling more positive. It gave me a much needed push in the right direction. Veg out I love Thai flavours and I made a speedy rice stir fry with some fresh flavours, mixed with a pack of savoury rice and some store-cupboard ingredients such as fish sauce and lemongrass paste. Cottage cheese alert Tesco sell a really good fat free cottage cheese and I love their pineapple version for snacking.
Burgers I gave my steak burger a Slimming World makeover with a zingy Asian slaw, corn and roasted courgette and aubergine. The only cure was fat coke and lots of salt vinegar crisps — not exactly on plan! OK, so I blame this chocolate cafe, Fazer, handily positioned across from my hotel in Helsinki, for the extra lb! It was my last weigh-in before wearing the bridesmaid dress and …I lost 3lbs!
I was a bit worried, as you know. Claire has also been on Slimming World for the wedding and looked amazing! Monday was a slow day still recovering but by Tuesday I got myself back down to the shops and stocked up on all the healthy Slimming World foods. In the basket is week are pink grapefruits, plums and Muller lights to make some tasty breakfast oats, smoked trout, mackerel and sliced meats for salads and some chicken and spinach to make a slimming world curry.
Here goes. It makes a change from my usual bran flakes. Salad days In Waitrose this week cooked quails eggs were reduced so I grabbed a pack for Syn free snacking.
