    Diary of a menopausal Yorkshire lass...

    Right then...
    I'm 48 and 4 weeks (how the heck did that happen?) and I've pretty much been on a diet since I was 16!

    My diet of choice - and most success - was weight watchers, but I'm finding I'm not able to eat enough to keep my raging hormones and mood swings at bay, so thought I'd try slimming world and all it's lovely carbs. I did it once before, somewhere back in the dark ages before EE and managed ok, what is worrying me a bit now is all the fruit and veg as I'm not really a lover of it, but am going to try and eat more.

    If there is anyone out there who wants to be my diet buddy, I could do with all the help I can get as I'm doing it on my own rather than going to meetings.

    I'm really impressed with what I've read on here and hope that keeping a food diary might just help me to stay on track.

    I'm 11 stone 2 pounds and want to get to about 9 and a half,
    wish me luck

    Love
    Mandy x

    Have spent the morning looking for meal ideas and have popped out to Asda to get some bits to put me on until I get my proper shop.

    I still can't decide if I should do EE or green?
    Decisions decisions...

    Anyhow, so far

    A- Milk
    B- Branflakes

    Breakfast - fruit and fibre with milk

    Lunch - Asda pea and mint soup pack - very yummy and good way to have veg.

    Snack - super noodles

    Dinner - chicken chow mein

    Snack - Mandarin muller

    So much food!

    Have you tried blitzing veg & then adding it to your food, it may be easier to digest. Are there any veggies you like? Peas, sweetcorn, tomatoes, anything?

    If you are struggling to have 1/3 superfree why not try red or green days. Also you don't need to have 1/3 veggies with your meal you could have a fruit salad as a dessert instead.

    Hi Michelle

    Thanks for your message.

    I like peas, carrots, sweetcorn and parsnips, but am I right in thinking there is only carrots in that lot that are superfree? I'm ok with other stuff if I chop it up really small and put it in bolognese or chilli. I just look at other peoples plates piled high with salad and veg and think I'm not getting enough, but I suppose owt is better than nowt lol.

    I thought you still had to have the 1/3 plate of superfree even with red or green?

    Still feeling positive, it's good to be on a diet where I'm not hungry all the time. I get really headachy and grumpy when I am, that said I still managed a mini row with the hubster this morning...

    Green day - at work

    A- Milk
    A-
    B- Fruit and fibre
    B- Cheese

    Breakfast - fruit and fibre

    Lunch - JP and beans (must find something else to eat when I'm at work)

    Dinner - homepride bacon and tomato pasta bake, with baby leaf salad (yuck)

    Snacks - coconut muller, vodka and coke (how did that happen?)

    Syns - 11

    Petit Pois are superfree. For lunch have you thought about either pasta, rice, potato salad & add things like petit pois, grated carrot or cooked/raw onions? That's usually what I have or sometimes noodles with veggies.

    Thank's for the lunch ideas, I need to get more organised. I have a food flask at the back od a cupboard somewhere, I'll dust that off and start getting up 5 minutes earlier x

    Hi Mandyboo, I have found you :-)

    I am here to subscribe and would be happy to be your diet buddy! I go to class so can help you with little bits hopefully!

    I must admit it was only last night I said to my OH that I'm getting bored of having to think of different things to have for lunch but I do think I have quite a variety which you will be able to follow from my food diary x

    Yay!
    I'll be able to pick your brains if I get stuck.

    The problem I have with lunch is we only have a kettle at work that I'll use, we do have a microwave, but that's enough to put you off food for life - eww!

    Haha I can imagine as we have quite a lot of people use our microwaves and often have to give them a wipe down before food goes in them! I use the microwave a lot at work as I also have jackets, pasta bakes, left overs from night before, beans, omelettes.....I know I'm quite lucky that I have these facilities at work x

    I work in a garage and I'm the only female, I'm sure you can imagine the state grubby mechanics leave a microwave in. I've actually thought about buying a cheap one for my office and putting a lock on it lol. They've even been known to 'borrow' my plates and cutlery because they can't be bothered to wash up.

    It's good to know your daughter did so well...did she follow EE?
    I joined SW online, but my subscription is about to run out. I've downloaded all the pdf's and have the 2013 brand directory so use those, it'll be good to have someone to ask if I get stuck though - thanks for that.

    I get the jars of homepride pasta bake, you mix dried pasta and water with it and bung it in the oven. The tomato and bacon one is 7.5 syns for 1/3 of the jar and you can put more pasta in than the instructions say, I use a hex of cheese on top. It's easy, yummy and my husband likes it too.
