Saturday, 25-11-23

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to my maintaining on Slimming World blog where I talk about the meals I enjoy while maintaining my target weight and keeping a healthy balanced diet.

Yesterday's weigh in resulted in a gain of one and a half but that's OK, I'm still well within target range.  Once today is over it is straight back on plan again.

Today is Christmas Tree Day, a family tradition where Beth and Alex come over, we put up our Christmas Tree, have a nice buffet, festive drinks and watch Christmas movies.
It will definitively, beyond any shadow of doubt, be off plan as I've got stuff we all enjoy . . .
veggie not-sausage rolls, halloumi fries, mini spring rolls, tortilla chips with salsa, baked camembert, nibbles, stollen bites and mince pies.  Plus a few good things like carrot batons, salad and fruit.

And I'm going to enjoy it all.

I'm sure Alex will take away any leftovers so that's good.

I don't have any photos from yesterday but, hopefully, I can take some of the buffet today.

Today's meal plans:

B:  fruit

L:  scrambled egg on toast
Just a light lunch.  I don't think I can last on coffee and fruit until the buffet.
SW:  one healthy extra B

D:  buffet

Exercise: does decorating the Christmas tree count - round and round with the lights, up and down with the baubles?

no idea, off plan and using flexi-syns today as much as I can

For information:
The Slimming World structure:
While following the plan, you can have . . .

Any amount of speed and free food - BUT try to have a third of your plate as speed food as a sub for free food, NOT as well as . . .  Eat to satisfaction, not to stuffed-ness!

Two healthy extra As (calcium) and one healthy extra B (fibre) - details in the SW pack and on the SW web site/app.

Between five and fifteen syns-worth of synned food - again, details in the pack, site and app.  They are a limit to stay within, not a target to hit.

As a target member, I can also have . . .

Another two healthy extras each day
Another fifteen syns up to three times each week
BUT - only if I need/want to.  It's a limit, not a target

. . . with the ultimate aim of not needing to count healthy extras, syns, etc at all but just knowing and eating well instinctively.
