Emilie πŸ’›  EmilieWaffles blog | SW Food Diary | 32 lbs down in total | Blind Weighing for 12 weeks 13 May - 5 August | Coeliac | Slow and steady | πŸŒΈπŸ’πŸ’›βœŒπŸΌ


#transformationtuesday Slowly slowly catchy monkey πŸ’ Summer 2015 (16st 4) to May 2017 and about 2.5 stone down though I'm not sure entirely because I'm currently in the the middle of 12 weeks of blind weighing. I'm sure that I enjoyed my birthday more this year because I have absolutely no idea what I weigh. Last year I frantically dieted so that I hit a milestone on my birthday and then never saw that number again (until this year), got upset that a weekend of birthday indulgence led to such a hefty gain (obviously) and then got engaged a week later and then it just aalllll went a bit to pot for the rest of the year. This year I have no idea what "damage" a weekend of birthday food has caused but I don't care because I had a wonderful time counting #memoriesnotcalories and I know that in the grand scheme of things it's not going to stop me getting to where I want to be over time. My focus now is on an overall goal, not mini weekly goals that totally affect my weekend mood depending on whether the scales tell me I've done alright or I've been pants (even when I know they aren't a fair reflection of how I have actually done). I got into the habit of daily weighing which is SO unhealthy and so not what I'm about - it was taking away from the enjoyment of @slimmingworld and since day dot I've said that despite my mission to get sassy fabulous I'm not in a rush and I will never stop having fun and loving life in the process. So, what I'm trying and failing to concisely say because my work phone keeps ringing and distracting me (can you believe they expect you actually work after a birthday bank holiday?!) is that I am feeling wonderfully positive and healthy and dare I say it.. slimmer.. thanks to swapping to blind weighing a few weeks ago and focusing on how I look and feel and how my clothes are fitting rather than on that a little sad step tells me. Obviously I want that little sad step to tell me happy news overall and I want his (scales would definitely be a him) numbers to keep going down over time BUT I'm thoroughly enjoying that not being my sole focus in life. Peace. Waffle over and out βœŒπŸΌπŸ’› #slayinmay #slimmingworld #blindweighrevolution #slimmingworlduk

Ok so I am doing an SP day but when I went wild buying all the super reduced yellow sticker fruit yesterday I hadn't planned that yet SO the bloobs and mango are not speed fruits but that's a-ok πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ @alpro Go passionfruit On protein yoghurt (1.5) with watermelon (speed), Apple (speed) and bloobs and mango (both free).

Baaaack on it today. 5 days of being angelic before we go of on our holiday on Saturday morning. Even though I've been "off plan" for my birthday weekend I don't feel like I've gone too wild and sabotaged my weight loss so far because I have in the back of my mind that I'm blind weighing and I want a good result at the end of the 12 weeks - EVEN with holidays and birthdays and weddings and parties during that time. That said I think I'm going to do a couple of SP days this week just to make sure I'm feeling fresh and bloat free ready for Cornwall. So, a mug of tea (in my lush new birthday mug from @kieras_swjourney to wake me up before we go to the shops for some holiday bits then back to walk the hounds, start packing, quick spruce of the house, meal plan and then an evening of sofa, movies, food, snugs. Perfect bank holiday weekend πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #slayinmay #shelfie #newmug #slimmingworld #glutenfreeslimmingworld #sw #swuk #slimmingworlduk #tea #mug #e #swlife

First SW friendly meal in quiiiite a few days (because of birthday) and it was wonderful. FT did slow cooked pulled pork and made the sauce using the recipe on the @slimmingworld website except substituted sweetener (hate the stuff, tastes like arse) for @doctor_wills BBQ sauce (4 tbsp = 6 syns for the whole thing, one portion was 1.5 syns and SO DELICIOUS). Cheesy chips (rest of HEXA) with a @bfreefoods pitta (HEXB) and loads of speedy veggies. Lush. #bbqpork #slayinmay #birthdayweekend #slimmingworld #glutenfree #glutenfreesw #glutenfreelife #sw #swuk #glutenfreeslimmingworld #swlife #swfood #extraeasy #slimmingworldrecipe

Loving life right now πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ₯‚πŸ›πŸ•―This is the first time I'm using my birthday present from @beckilw_sw and @djf_sw and I am SO excited - I've wanted one of these for so long and I must have harped on about it a LOT because they got me this one and then Fat Tom got me a very similar one πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ You can ever have too many bath shelves though yeah?!

I'm on supportive girlfriend duty today at a miniature model painting competition / fest (not a clue) in Coventry 😎✌🏼Just taken a quick break to nip outside and get some fresh air (πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š), soak up some rays (black jeans are NOT ideal) and drink my coffee. Caffeine is needed after 6 hours sleep over the last two nights. We've got pulled pork in the slow cooker which should be perfectly cooked by the time we get home this evening πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ‘€πŸ˜ #coffeebreak #coffee #notsoslimmingworld #birthdayweekend

****SOLD**** MOOOORNING - I've sorted through a LOT of clothes over the last week for the #SWClothesThrow and I've got two huowge purple bags full of goodies to go to charity πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I have a few bits that are brand new, recent, never worn and still with labels on so I thought I would (FT is making me) try and boost (make a start on) the wedding savings and see if any of you wanted them first before I put them on EBay? I find the whole EBay process very stressful and unenjoyable. I feel like I'm being interrogated while I'm trying to list something and I panic and sweat and worry I will go to jail if I get any detail ever so slightly wrong. What if I called this dress mint green but someone else called it turquoise?! Panic. This one was from ASOS (it's a BooHoo dress) and it's a size 16, bought about 2 months ago and all sold out. It's never been worn (obvs tried on yeah?! Is that allowed?! Would eBay tell me off?!) I love it so much but it just doesn't look as fabulous on me as it did on the Asos model (story of my life - short girl problems) so I want it to go to a new loving home. Selling for Β£15 plus p&p (no idea how much that would cost?! Another stressful Ebay thing). Is there anything else I need to do/say?! Argh. Sorry. Thanks. Ok bye. ✌🏼 #shitsaleswoman #notsoslimmingworld #boohoo #asos #maxidress #size16 #forsale

Food porn πŸ‘€πŸ˜πŸ• Delicious gluten free pizza at #thestablebath after a day of dog walking and Birthday shopping with Fat Tom. Heading home now for a bath (I got new bath treats for my birthday πŸ›), a gin and slimline, some pampering and an early night ready to head to Coventry tomorrow for FT to enter his painting competition πŸ–ŒπŸŽ¨πŸ˜ŽβœŒπŸΌ#birthdaygirl #birthdaypizza #notsoslimmingworld #birthday #bath #glutenfree #glutenfreepizza

I had the BEST birthday (not over yet, dragging this out over the weekend, still got lots of presents to open 😏). Pals, gluten free dough balls, 2for1 cocktails, sunshine, tapas followed by bowling, then karaoke and then dancing at @thelanesbristol. Rolled in at 3am so I'm glad that turning 28 hasn't ruined my disco stamina πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’…πŸ½. A few things to mention: @lasiguanas gluten free cheesy dough balls are UNREAL, I really like my friends - this is the Cornwall holiday crew (we go a week today πŸ™ŒπŸΌβ˜€οΈ) and I chose them really well, I started off really well with bowling and shouldn't have kept drinking because my skills disappeared really quickly, bowling in your flip flops is a strange sensation, karaoke is up there with my favourite things ever but I've also decided that I'm absolutely tone deaf after watching back the videos this morning - can you see a doctor about such a thing?! Didn't miss a single beat during my Nikki Minaj rap but also didn't hit a single note did I?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ž Ended the night managing to lose my bank card whilst in a tiny photo booth with one way in and one way out (it was eventually found down the back of the seat once the booth was taken apart πŸ‘€πŸ™„) and NOT buying any naughty food at the end of the night. Like that matters πŸ˜πŸ”πŸΉ#birthdaygirl #outout #happybirthdaytome #birthday #bristol #notsoslimmingworld #karaoke #bowling #birthdayfun #birthdaysarefun
