    ClaireL second chance diary

    Well, I thought I would start a diary (again!) as I have been slip sliding lately and can feel that if I don't pull my finger out I will completely lose focus and then that will be the beginning of the end, I'm hoping I am not there yet!!

    I need to see another 28lbs go away, I have only lost a total of 8lbs so far, it was a much grander 15lbs but most of that has gone back on and I feel ashamed - I was ill about 3 weeks ago - ate a load of crap and have not done anything really to sort it out since then, but really that is no excuse so it's time to get back on the wagon...

    I live in Austria so there's no chance of joining a group so I am relying on this to keep me on track, if anyone reads my mumblings and can see I am going wrong please, please give me shove in the right direction, all comments welcome

    I will do mostly extra easy as I think it fits in better with family food, and I don't want to be cooking separate meals just for me.

    So here we go

    Wednesday 20 march 2013

    Breakfast
    Egg, turkey rasher, mushrooms

    Snack
    banana

    Lunch
    Chicken and veg soup (homemade - packed with veggies and a bit of barley to help fill up)
    0 syn vanilla yog with fresh raspberries

    Dinner
    Pasta, salmon, asparagus, side salad
    sugar free jelly with strawberries - 1syn , aerosol cream (2tbsp) - 0.5 syns

    Before bed
    Highlights chocolate drink - 2syns
    Toasted WM bread with LF spread - 1.5 syns

    HEA: Milk in my cuppa throughout the day
    HEB: wholewheat bread

    Total syns: 5


    Need to find out if you are supposed to have only 1 or if you can have 2 HEA on extra easy???

    Good morning world - well yesterday was "goodish" - didn't stick to the meals I had planned (what's new there!!) but on the plus side I did keep within the SW plan for the day. I think it's better for me to write what I have had the day before or else I am going to be constantly editing- LOL - never could make a decision and stick to it!!
    So yesterday was like this:

    EXTRA EASY

    Breakfast
    Egg, turkey rasher, mushrooms

    Snack
    banana

    Lunch
    Pasta bake - pasta, courgette, onion, pepper, tomato, parmesan cheese (2syns)
    baked cheesecake (2syns)

    Dinner
    Hot dog made with LF sausage (0.5 syn) SW chips, onion, salad, tom ketchup (1syn), wholewheat bread roll (HEB)
    LF yogurt with fresh raspberries

    HEA: Milk for drinks through day


    Total syns = 5.5

    Hi, reasonable day yesterday, although I did have a few G&Ts in the evening which I was trying not to do - ah well, it's still within the syns so maybe I will just say last night was this week's Friday if you know what I mean!

    EXTRA EASY

    Breakfast
    2 boiled eggs with toast (HEB)

    Lunch
    Left over chicken, veg and barley soup
    slice of baked cheesecake 2 syns (recipe from minimins)

    Dinner
    rich beef casserole with mustard mash 2.5syns (gravy granules and mustard) with sprouts (love them!!!) and broccoli
    banana

    G&T x 3!! 7.5 syns Mmm - not sure it's worth it - will have to think of some non alcoholic / lower syn drink that tastes a bit 'special' for the evenings so I can save my syns

    snacks
    chicken drumsticks, mango, strawberries, 0syn vanilla yogurt

    HEA: milk in drinks through day

    Total syns for the day = 12

    If anyone reads this and knows what the deal is with HE's on extra easy could poss add a comment - can't seem to work it out!!

    Hi - you are very welcome to follow - I will look for your diary too

    My problem is that when I fall off the wagon it's never just a little trip up - it"s always spectacular fall with maximum damage!! and weekends are def my danger area - I think if I can control myself at the weekend I will be much happier.

    So my Friday and Saturday looked like this:
    Friday
    Breakfast -2 slices bacon and 1 poached egg, 1 slice wholewheat bread toasted (HEB - was from normal sized loaf so will count 1 slice as full HEB?)

    Lunch - noodles and some frozen oriental veg stir fried

    Dinner - went out with OH and son - had a burger but didn't eat the bun, so maybe 4 syns??? salad, large beer (500ml) 9syns

    HEA - milk in drinks

    TOTAL SYNS = 13

    Saturday
    Breakfast -weetabix x1 (half HEB) , milk from allowance (part HEA) , banana

    Lunch - bread roll (half HEB plus 3 syns) egg, tomato, LF mayo (1.5 syns)

    Dinner - kofta biryani, spinach (was at a loss for what to have as superfree LOL), sugar free jelly with strawberries (1syn) with spray cream (2 syns)

    HEA: milk with cereal and in drinks

    TOTAL SYNS= 7.5

    Yesterday wasn't so good after all started Ok but like many folks I have a struggle to keep it together at the weekends - weigh in is Monday so I am not sure if a bit of self sabotage isn't in there too!! I really need to work on this - but for now a line is drawn and I have all week to plan for next weekend if you know what I mean .......

    So offerings for Sunday (hangs head in shame before I begin!!)

    Breakfast
    hash browns, egg, tomato, mushrooms, LF sausage (1syn)

    Lunch
    left over kofta biryani

    Dinner
    roast chicken, mash, sprouts, broccolo, carrot and peas, gravy (2syns)
    and then the rot begins.......
    wine - 3 glasses (19.5 syns - oops!!)
    bread (HEB) and LF cheese 4 syns
    chocolate krispie made by son - ??syny - 4 or 5??

    HEB: Bread
    HEA: Milk in drinks

    TOTAL SYNS= 31.5


    My strategy for the week - try with weekly syns rather than daily so I can be more aware anad save them for the weekend, plan meals in advance and stick to plan, make some syn free or low syn snacky food for the evenings (this is the time when I'm most likely to get the nibbles)

    Will weigh in this evening too - will update tomorrow

    I always have weekly syns instead of daily, i just think rather than it getting to 8pm an thinking 'ohh iv got 10syns to eat and then having choc or sweets..etc' its better to save them for when you actually need them or want them!i get weighed on a thursday and i tend to use my syns on choc or alcohol or a meal out on friday and saturday, then im syn free for monday-thursday. Iv been doing SW for 12 weeks only wanted to lose a stone an iv lost 1stone 1pound. so it can work, iv heard on this forum that some Consultants say not to use all ur syns at once but you do what you feel works for you, try it one week and if it doesnt work no major harm done! X good luck
