    Jen's Green and EE diary :) Closed...new diary has been made!

    Hi everyone, Jen here

    I'm new to slimming world and rather unsure of how I'm doing/following it at the moment!

    I would absolutely love any advice from you guys, I really want to do it right! Going to give you what I've eaten for the past few days to see if I'm on the right track.

    Monday- Wednesday. I hadn't been shopping and hadn't too much time to read up on the plan.
    Breakfast
    2 Apples.

    Lunch
    Salad including lettuce, peppers, mushrooms, chicken and a handful of pasta. I used 2 tablespoons of light mayo.

    Dinner.
    Baked Potato and Baked beans.

    Snacks
    Banana


    Thursday
    Breakfast
    2 Apples.

    Lunch
    Salad including lettuce, peppers, mushrooms, chicken and a handful of pasta. I used 2 tablespoons of light mayo.

    Dinner.
    Slimming world Spag Bol.


    Please let me know how I'm doing and where I can pick things up a bit! Really grateful!

    Hi there, thanks for your post. If you read your book it mentions healthy extras which you havent listed. Are you having your full milk allowance as your havnt mentioned this? Also breakfast really youre not eating enough. What about a cereal or porridge as your healthy extra b? Also you must have an average of 10 syns a day for the plan to work. It will all become clear in the fullness of time. Only too pleased to help you anytime

    Hey there, thanks for the response. I actually forgot to mention that I'm following (or attempting to follow ) SW online. I personally don't find it to be set out all that clearly? Maybe I'm just a tad stupid

    You have to eat your syns each day? I genuinely haven't been hungry enough to want to snack so far, am I still supposed tp? As for brekkie and milk, I can't say I'm a big fan of either? Will any of this cause me to screw up?

    Too complicated lol!

    Hiya hun

    I'm also doing sw from home but my advice would be to scrap the sw online, go to one meeting and get all the books, etc and then just do it from home that way! Thats what i've done as i'm a bit strapped for cash!

    You get all the information you need to follow the plan properly, and then all the advice/recipes/syn value questions youll need are on here there is a rough guide to syn values in the green food optimising book you are given at a meeting, but for everything else just search the syn forum on here

    Alternatively, look on ebay because a few people sell their sw books on there. But i would say you really need a food optimising book, it's become my sw bible!

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    If you're doing EE the main point is that 1/3 of every meal should be superfree. Thats not an 'as well as' - the point in the superfree is to reduce the amount of non-superfree (ie plain old free and syns) that you eat, as it is a lot more energy-dense than the superfree, (which is minimal calorie-wise). So for this meal you could have maybe had a smaller potato, half a portion of beans and filled up with salad or veggies or healthy coleslaw or whatever.

    Just a little note about books on ebay. In Jan the green pack was replaced by an orange one with slightly different info regarding healthy extras and values etc. If you do go down the ebay route, make sure its an orange pack

    Fpr brekkie then you could always have say loads of superfree fruit, ie strawberries,kiwi,banana, anything else you fancy with fat free syn free yoghurt. Or if you have more time, a S W "fry up". Bacon with all the fat cut off fried in fry light, or grilled,egg,mushrooms,tomatoes. Make sure your mushrooms and tomatoes fill a good third of your plate. Hope this helps. Also if you dont feel hungry enough to have syns as snacks, why not have a few syns in yr main meals like thickener in yr casseroles,or a small bit of butter on a slice of healthy extra wholemeal bread. The syns are there to stop you feeling deprived so you really should enjoy. If you have the correct amount it wont affect yr weight loss. Or you could start the week as 70 syns and count down as you use them up to w in day.

    Hi guys, thanks for the advice so far. I'm a teacher so don't have much chance to get to the shops during the week. Going to go to Tesco in the morning and try to get a few more fruits and veggies in.
    Anyways, correct me if I'm wrong but today

    Friday
    Breakfast

    2 apples

    Break time snack
    Apple


    Lunch
    Salad-lettuce, mushrooms, peppers, onion and chicken. I had 2 level teaspoons of light mayo added to this (4 syns total)

    Dinner
    SW Spag bol. As I'm following EE this seems to be free? Is the pasta counted as a healthy extra?

    Snacks
    Apple
    Twix (5 syns)

    Having had a twix (which I know is within my syn limit) I FEEL guilty!

    I stood on the scales as soon as I'd finished dinner today (I know I shouldn't as my WI day is Sunday) but I weighed in at 12st 2lbs, I know our weight fluctuates but I started the week (Sunday) at 12 st, 6lbs and 3/4.
    Fingers crossed!

    Eeek having a small panic that I've really ballsed up my day already.

    This morning I went to a friends house for breakfast, I did tell her during the week that I could only eat something healthy and she was very good and made me a fruit salad with some fresh orange juice poured over it.

    In the salad was apples, strawberries, oranges and banana. All good, but I'm worried about the orange juice and the exotic juice drink I had with it. I've worked out the drink to be about 7 syns.

    I also had a muller light cherry yoghurt. On my SW online food diary it tells me it's free but when I click on it to add it to my diary it comes up in black font which is throwing me?

    I was really wanting to make the SW Sweetcorn pasta bake today to try it but now I'm in a panic that I'm really messing up my intake. I think it's 3 syns per serving?


    *Also, in the ingredients or the pasta bake it says you need 200g of low fat soft cheese but it doesn't actually mention how you use it in the recipe? Is it to go on top? Because in the recipe they mention parmesan but that wasn't in the original list! ahh confusion!

    Ok so I have a little catching up to do!

    Saturday ended up like
    Breakfast
    Fruit Salad
    Exotic Juice (roughly 7 syns)
    Muller light

    Lunch
    Sw sweetcorn pasta bake.

    Dinner
    Forgot about this one and instead drank my weight in vodka, Syn count unknown but judging by my hangover and the amount of trouble I caused I'd say at least 1000! Ahh!

    Anyways, I weighed in on Sunday in my horrifically hungover state to find I'd lost 9 pounds. I don't personally think this could be correct given how much I'd drank the night before and that my weight may have crept up a bit over the past 24 hours as my body finally soaks up the alcohol.

    Sunday
    Breakfast
    Strawberries and Strawberry Muller Light

    Lunch
    SW SWcorn pasta bake

    Dinner
    Baked potato and beans. I know there's not a whole lot of SF foods appearing today but as I was at death's door I didn't think I did too bad.

    Back on track today.
    Monday
    Breakfast
    2 strawberries and an apple.

    Mid morning snack
    Apple

    Lunch
    Salad-lettuce, onions, cucumber, peppers and chicken. I got it from SUBWAY and the woman roughly put on 4 tablespoons so we'll say 8syns.

    Dinner
    sw sweetcorn pasta bake. 3 syns

    Total syns 11.

    Hi

    Your diary looks fine but you don't appear to be having all your healthy extras. Make sure you have milk, cheese or whatever up to your healthy extra limit. You need that for calcium. Also, you say you don't like cereal but maybe you could have two slices of wholemeal bread with beans or an egg for breakfast. I know it's time consuming but I feel so much healthier having a good breakfast every day. Two apples is not enough. They make a good snack.

    The only other comment I have is that you make sure you have enough vegetables with your evening meal. Btw your weight loss is fantastic, I wish mine was as good .

    Thanks for the feedback Jane I shall try to eat a better breakfast, it's just not a meal I tend to enjoy but I need to start putting effort in to it!

    This is one element of slimming world I'm not sure I grasp. If I eat vegetables with my evening meal I assume the idea of it is to make me not want to snack later, or eat less but I am having a reasonable sized portion at the minute (weighed out when I split them so I know it's ok for 1 person) and really don't imagine any of my 'skinny' friends having a smaller meal?!

    Who knew dieting could be so confusing! I'd love feedback from anyone. Will not having vegetables make a difference? I don't tend to snack after dinner anyway!
