Slimming World Weekly Weigh In #9

23rd September 2015
I’ve had a bad week this week, I planned to have a bad week as I had a lot on. I went away for a few days, celebrated a friends birthday and went to watch Wales play rugby. The week included chip shop chips, warm doughnuts on the beach, hotdog & chips, lots of lager, two three course meals, McDonalds, pizza a burger, an all you can eat buffet, and probably more naughties that I’ve forgotten! 
I expected a gain this week, in fact, I wanted a gain. I knew that if I didn’t gain I would refer back to ‘the week when I ate lots and didn’t put weight on’ whenever I wanted a naughty treat. So, as strange as it seems, I was relieved today to step onto the scales and see that I had gained 1/2 a pound. Relieved that a) I had put weight on after binging so much and b) I had managed to undo some of the damage by having a few good days.

There won’t be a food diary this week as there haven’t been many on plan days, instead I’ll be sharing my favourite meals of the week and a few tips to stay on track when going away.
We were staying in a self catering lodge which meant that we had a full kitchen. I had to prepare food to take for Aria so while I was at it I took some food for myself. I prepared some overnight oats for breakfast, took a few hi-fi bars, a bag of veg, a Slimming World microwave meal and some homemade low syn steak bakes. I didn’t necessarily stay on plan when eating these things but I did make better decisions because of them, for example, my late night drunken snack was a homemade steak bake instead of a greasy kebab. The day that I ate my overnight oats I also had hi-fi bars meaning that I ate too many b choices that day, but if I hadn’t of had these I would have ended up buying a greasy breakfast out and snacking on junk food. I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t of made these good decisions my weigh in today would have been a lot worse! 
roast pork, spuds and apple sauce slimming world style
My favourite on plan meal was the roast pork, spuds and apple sauce from the new Best Loved Extra Easy Recipes book. I used cauliflower gravy so the only syns were 1.5 for the apple sauce. It was absolutely delicious.

If you’re a regular reader you will probably be aware that I enjoy a pudding. This one was beautiful and came in at a low 4 syns. It is a strawberry eton mess using a vanilla flavour muller light, chopped strawberries and meringue nests. It certainly satisfied a craving though next time I will make it with sweetened quark as the yoghurt was a little too runny. 
How have you done this week? Have you ever been happy to gain weight?

    half a pound gain is great, and at least you enjoyed all the yummy food! I had chippy this week, it was so good but I felt so bad after eating it!

      It really is, I was so pleased and had a lot of fun gaining it!
      If you enjoyed it don't feel naughty, just be extra good for a few days to make up for it!

    Ohhhh the roast pork meal sounds delicious, I need to look into cauliflower gravy! Sounds like you have had an awesome week and lager… a girl after my own heart! You fully enjoyed it and that's what counts. A 1/2 pound gain is remarkable, I would have put on a stone after all that so it goes to show you were making sensible choices and sticking to the plan somewhat! Slimming World is working really well for you – have missed the meal plan and images this week! You are doing really well chick, you can do it! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday and hope you can join in this week! Sim xx

      It was so good. Cauliflower gravy is lovely and super healthy, I highly recommend it!
      Good to find a fellow lager girl 🙂 I can't resist it and I did really enjoy it!
      SW is really working for me, the freedom that the plan gives me helps me stick to it!
      I'll definitely be joining in with the linky again tomorrow 🙂

    Sounds great and your pudding looks great too! I also had a bad week this week and your totally right when you say that you think its ok every week because at least you didn't put anything on as I do exactly the same thing! 🙂

      The pudding was delicious 🙂
      I'm glad it isn't just me who thinks like that!

    Oh now that eton mess sounds yummy! Will have to give that a go – I have such a bad sweet tooth and it's definitely causing me issues at the moment lol. (Sorry my comment is so late!)
