This post is inspired by something one of my woman of the year nominees said in our finals last week.
She shared the danger of constantly thinking you’re either on plan or off plan, then on plan again. You get the picture. She shared that as soon as you tell yourself you’re going off plan it can subconsciously, or even consciously give you free rain to go crazy. She is so right, slimming world is a life style change, not a diet. Therefore there’s no need to think you’re on plan or off it, you aren’t being good or bad or breaking it or sticking to it. I’ve eaten the slimming world way for over 14 years. I couldn’t of dieted for 14 years. I’ve had flexible days yes, these are days where you may need more syns to get through. That’s fine, we don’t do guilt at sw. If you tell yourself you’re needing a flexible day that feels very different to a day off plan. This way you stay in control and you relieve any guilt or feelings of blowing it.
So no need to say your on plan or off plan. You’re just food optimising and making good choices.
So I’ve done a bit of shopping over the miserable rainy bank holiday weekend. I’ve also enjoyed some meals out and a few vodkas, flexible days not off plan 😉 Here’s some pictures of recent purchases and meals.
Have a fab day and Happy Fopping xx
