Things are going good, I've lost 4 and a half stone.. YAY... I have to admit I've not posted on here because I don't fully understand how to use it. I'm feeling good at the minute, I'd love to post some recipes and ideas and stuff and keep meaning to post what I eat. but my minds not that organised lol. And life is busy.. I went to the gym yesterday and did well with the weights. can't wait till the kids are back at school so I can go more... yay... Thanks to slimming world am feeling good about myself and looking forward to the future.. I'm managing to think positive and use my positive thinking to help me through life, I'm now dating as well. I'd like to thank the people who have helped me through and my slimming world group, last year I was a completely different person and without these people in my life I would of never have done it without you, staying to group has helped me soo much and pinching ideas from online too has helped also the friendship and support that has been offered. life is difficult at times and I think at times we all need support and to be kind to ourselves. its so easy to fall down the trap of am useless I can't do anything when we fail at certain things. and i'm rambling... but been there done that... so thought id share

Todays food diary,
boiled egg.(free)

jacket potato(free)

quorn, sausage and bacon (free)
brown bap (healthy extra)
egg cooked in fry light(free)
a bit of tomato sauce, (2 syns)

muller light yogurt (1/2 syn)

need more syns..... hmmm what shell I have...

activity,, running around play zone and walking around town, had lots of fun with my 5 yr old.

want to sleep and sleep and eat and eat

okay yesterday was bad all I felt like doing is sleeping and I felt sooo hungry, soo today I need to make sure I get some exercise so going to take my daughter to play zone then I can get some exercise there as well,  yesterday my food diary was, 2 slices of brown toast and a orange for breakfast, with a bit of low fat spread approx. (1 syn),snack apple, free lasagne for lunch and a freddo(5 1/2 syns), Tea baked potato, baked beans, chicken and salad, I used my healthy extras on milk in cups of teas. (I drink a lot of tea... yesterday was not the best of days but now am looking at this and thinking hmmm I ate quite a lot but it was free food and for some strange reason I was hungrier then normal. although could have used more syns.  I also made some homemade cheese cake bases I need to do the rest of the mix today as I did not have enough time yesterday.... I think I felt bad about yesterday but seeing what I ate don't think it's too bad, maybe am being a bit hard on myself... I got quite depressed yesterday thinking about not being able to get a job, maybe not even coping with a job, makes me feel down thinking about it. not having had good relationships and never being engaged or married, being a single parent. today is a day to be nicer to myself and to stop putting myself down.. positive thinking today...

this is a picture of me now....

    This is a picture of me before I started slimming.
Hi everyone I thought I'd make a blog... this is my first post so guessing I'd introduce myself. I am Sarah and last year and the year before I had a really hard time and turned to alcohol which I will not talk about much on here.. I've come out of it now and am losing weight with slimming world which I'd like to talk about on here and am feeling good about life again.. I have now lost 3 stone 13 and a half pounds and been abstinent from alcohol for a year. I'm making a blog to remind myself how I am doing and to update others. maybe inspire some who knows.

Today I have received an veg and fruit box which I love and am going to the gym before picking my 5 year old up from school..

think i'd leave this at here, I may will put my diet up on here too and how am doing each time..
