No longer Miss_Taken about losing weight
I'm not long home from my weigh in and just found out I lost 3.5lb this week (making a total of 1st 12.5lb off in total) and was awarded slimmer of the month. I figure now is as good a time as any to start keeping a food diary, since after a good week, I tend to "justify" extra syns to myself..."I was really good last week, I deserve a treat"...sound familiar anyone? I would post a picture for self shaming purposes but I've been a camera dodger (and cropper) since I was about 15, and I don't honestly know if I could hunt down an appropriate full length picture. If anyone wants to see one though, I'll have a look.
So here goes
Unless otherwise stated, I generally follow the extra easy plan
Breakfast was a whole meal pitta with chicken salad and 2 spoons of lighter than light mayo.
Lunch was couscous salad with peppers, onion, sweetcorn and lettuce on the side.
Dinner was extra lean sausages, pasta hoops, corn on the cob, salad onions and a little sweet chilli sauce.
Had quite a good day today, seems like planning out my meals for the entire week agrees with me! Got up nice and early and took the dog for a wee walk, only 1.5 miles but I want to try to do it at least 4 days a week and a long walk at the weekend. Feel shattered though, nothing to do with walking, I just feel sort of run down. Hope I'm not coming down with the cold I've also taken up knitting (again) to occupy my hands (and brain) in the evening so I don't get the urge to nibble.
Breakfast consisted of an omelette, 2 bacon rashers, lettuce, onion and scallion
Lunch was a chicken salad from a sandwich bar (no cheese or dressings)
Dinner was homemade stew (less than half a syn per portion) and 1 small whole meal roll.
Forgot to check in last night with my meals so here goes, even if it is a bit late.
Breakfast was scrambled egg with sweet chilli sauce (1.5 syns) and side salad
Lunch was leftover stew
Dinner was sweet potato shepherds pie with an enormous salad.
Got a little naughty though around lunch time and stopped for a sandwich but I counted the syns and I stayed within my allowance.
Another walk with the dog done too, do u think if your dog is a puller, they should count calories burned as much higher?
I know where you are coming fron regarding the treats. I have done that in the past and can feel myself doing that today as I had a good result on the scales yesterday.
But doing my best to stay focuced and within syns..

That's the main thing that I'm concentrating on, staying within my syns. I'd rather spend longer getting to target than feel like I'm deprived and be miserable. I'm enjoying slimming world, and I don't intend to go back to eating the way I used to.

Lunch was couscous salad (bit plain to be honest, but I'm refusing to take my purse to work from now on so no more munchies at work hopefully).
Dinner was lean pork and apple burgers, actifry chips, side salad, and mixed veg.
Had a couple of rocky road hifi light bars and a mullerlight to snack on
hey hun, sorry about your nerve it sounds painful
Love your food diary, I am the same starting weight as you saw you have lost 2 stone since end of jan-that gives me fab motivation My favorite sins right now are walkers baked crisps
Thanks jules, feeling like I was talking to myself for a while there not that its a hardship, I do that a lot

Good luck with your own diet, do you have a food diary? Have you just started? How are you getting on? Motivation is the hardest part so I'm glad I can help. I feel so much better having lost the 2st already. I thought it'd take much longer to notice a difference, but my blood pressure is back to normal, my energy levels (when not on painkillers) are much higher and I'm catching myself craving salads and wanting to do exercise. I know I still have a long way to go, but I love slimming world. Pretty much any recipe is adaptable so I don't feel like I'm on a diet at all.
Got my weigh in tonight and we're having a taster night so it should be fun...wish me luck, if I have 1lb off, I'll be delighted, after not being able to cook most of the week
