Following on from my first Slimming World food diary post a few weeks ago, here is how I got on in my second week.  I should stress it's not my second ever week on Slimming World, just the second week of writing a blog food diary series.  Anyway, on with the diary - scroll to the bottom to see how I got on at weigh in.  Also, if you'd rather watch this in video format then my weekly food diary vlog is here.

WEIGH IN


Results time….drum roll, not really required.  I lost half a pound this week which is better than nothing, but I wasn't particularly buoyed up by it.  I think my treat night was a bit *too* much of a treat though (I daren't even think how many syns that was - the oreo milkshake alone was probably 30).  

Onwards and upwards though!  Good luck to you fellow Slimming Worlders, I hope you had a better week than me :)
