Where Am I Going Wrong?

I've hit the mother of all plateaus! I can't seem to get under 11 stone. I managed it back in January but since then I have been generally just above it. I have grown to hate my scales and even taken to weighing myself almost daily (I do not recommend this). I tried filling and healthy for a few weeks, but that didn't work. I know my problem there, I can't seem to judge the 'satisfied' feeling. I am one of those people who can eat a huge amount before feeling full and this does not work with filling and healthy. I wish it did work for me, but propoints is the plan for me.

Why I'm Voting Yes!

I've been thinking about writing this post for a while and with only 3 days to go, I am finally finding the words to say to express how I feel about this referendum. To be honest, I feel quite uncomfortable with the fact I am allowed to have an opinion on this at all. What gives me the right to decide whether or not two people who love each other should have the right to be legally recognised as a family here in Ireland. Other peoples marriages have absolutely no impact on my life whatsoever, and the only person you should require permission from to get married is the person you are intending to marry.

Guest Post: Sophie's Slimming World Journey!

From Couch Potato to Rugby All Star*

For as long as I can remember I've always been overweight. That one big friend, feeling uncomfortable going out with all my 'thin' friends. Them being able to wear what was trendy and me hiding away in tracksuit bottoms and hoodies. I joined weight watchers when I was 17 and managed to do really well, getting down to my lowest ever weight but that did not last long. I moved school in 5th year and slowly I gave up tracking and going to class.

May Madness!!

It's nearly half way through the year and I don't know about you, but I am in need of some extra motivation!! There seems to be so much on lately, I'm finding the weekends a struggle. I seem to have one weekend on track and one weekend off track! 12 weeks to my holiday and I am in exactly the same position I was when I posted last about it! So I've reached out to  a couple of family members who have had great success with their own weight loss journeys! There is nothing like a success story to help spur you on a little.

Tandoori Chicken with Rice Pilaff

I posted the photo of my Sunday night dinner at my parents on my facebook page and my instagram account and got a few requests for the recipe of the rice dish. It was a fabulous meal, but the recipe is not mine, its my mothers, and its not a recipe as such as a dish she threw together. I have to say it was really good so we talked through how she made it so I can piece together the recipe for the blog. Its all free on Filling & Healthy which is always a plus!
