Slimming World and Socialising

There is no denying that Slimming World has very easy to follow diet plans.  There is also no denying that I like going out and eating which makes sticking to the former very challenging!


Two pots of fruit for breakfast2 fruit salad pots A trip to M&S yielded a large ready made and undressed salad and a packet of spicy chicken pieces.M&S salad and chicken The salad was a bit boring without dressing but the chicken was tasty.chicken salad I snacked on grapes all afternoon.grapes 16-10-14 I was out in the evening with Jeremy and Laura and failed to take any photos or stick to my diet.  But I ate a huge pizza (about 40 syns !!!!!) and 3 glasses of wine which have 9 syns each.  It was wonderful to see my friends and I wish I could see them more often but not a good night’s eating!


I had an apple for breakfast, worked hard and then popped out to the local pub, The Milkhouse, for lunch with Simone.

This was beautiful and delicious.Milkhouse starter 17-10-14 It was a butternut carpaccio topped with roasted root vegetables and the purple salad which tasted like cress.  It was really good.butternut capraccio As a main I had breaded plaice with mashed potato.  I left the creamy sauce to save some calories, much as I wanted to eat it.  The plaice and potato tasted very good and were well cooked. The only thing I would have changed was to add some more vegetables.  The company was tip top.Plaice and potato In the evening I made a huge bowl of stir fried vegetables from onion, butternut squash, purple kale, sprouting broccoli and spinach.veggies 17-10-14 Lots and lots of spinach !spinach in sink Plus a slice of ham and half a tin of chick peas.  Gently spiced with a variety of different spices made a very light and tasty supper.Stir fried veggies and ham

I am out all day tomorrow but I have prepared food to take with me so no excuses for not being good tomorrow.

Have a happy evening.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
