    PGD's food and exercise diary

    Hi everyone

    My name is Sara and I'm a serial dieter that has been messing about with the Cambridge Weight Plan and losing putting on the same I would say 3 stone for the last 4 years .

    All of a sudden the penny is suddenly dropping and I'm realising that I'm just not going to get anywhere like that and I could have lost the weight I wanted to many times over. I just kept convincing myself that if I wanted the big losses CWP was the only way despite putting the weight back on and more every time I cheated.

    My husband was rushed into hospital with a suspected heart attack in September (which it thankfully wasn't) and to be honest that's when it all changed. We've given up smoking and now feel able to tackle the weight issue for me and the high cholesterol and high sugar (borderline diabetes) for him.

    I've bought the starter pack off of ebay for the minute as I commute 50 miles to work and back each day getting home in time for a meeting is a bit tricky - I am if we both get on with the plan well going to join online but for the time being we are seeing how we go. I think I'm doing ok but am a bit confused about the HEX A & B's although am reading everything furiously on hear to make my way through it, I'm sure it will all become a bit clearer once the books arrive.

    I've joined my local gym (on a 12 month contract so I have the incentive to stick at it) and have booked some classes and the hubs and I are playing badminton on Saturday so we are I think making good baby steps. I'm going to try to post here every day a food diary and what exercise I'm doing. I think it will keep me on track and hopefully if you see me making mistakes you can jump in and help me out (lol).

    So here goes

    Monday (yesterday).

    Breakfast - 2 eggs scrambled (with HEXA milk 350ml skimmed) and baked beans, melon and pineapple pieces
    lunch - salmon fillet cooked in foil with large bowl of chopped cucumber, radish, peppars, celery. Muller light yoghurt
    dinner - small chicken breast stir fried with a pack of stir fried veggies and a low fat stir fry sause and egg noodles (HEXB)

    snacks - pear, apple, muller light yoghurt
    syns - approximately 5 for stir fry sauce (although without the book I'm not sure how to work it out).

    Tuesday

    Breakfast - 2 eggs scrambled (with HEXA milk 350ml skimmed) and baked beans, melon and pineapple pieces
    lunch - large salad with smoked mackeral fillet (outraged to find this is 2 syns per 100g), muller light yoghurt, pear, banana
    dinner - sweet and sour mugshot
    snacks - 2 satsumas 2 plums
    syns - 2 for the mackeral

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Morning everyone

    I've weighed myself this morning - I must get a handle on that to be honest as I don't want to be demotivated by constantly standing on the scales (which haven't moved by the way). I'm not surprised not to have lost anything over the last 2 days, i think that largely my body is adjusting to the amount differing foods I'm putting into it so I'm thinking I will try my best not to weigh myself until next Monday which will be a week on the plan.

    So today my planned food diary is:

    Breakfast - 2 eggs scrambled with some of the HEXA skimmed milk allowance and baked beans. 1 satsuma, one plum and a banana
    Lunch - chopped cucumber, cherry tomatoes, chopped celery, chopped beetroot, chopped green pepper - 2 hard boiled eggs and 2 lean slices of honey roast ham.
    dinner - beef casserole made with stewing beef, carrots, onions, carrots, swede - casserole mix (schwartz beef)

    snacks - satsuma, plum,
    syns - casserole 6 syns for whole casserole I'm counting 3 for me.

    I've got my first zumba class this evening and can't wait. My SW starter pack should be here from ebay today too so I can see how the body optimizing works with food.

    Didn't think that I would be enjoying this quite as much as I am and have to admit that I'm being good on syn's during the week so that I can have a few voddys at the weekend (oops).

    I'm struggling a bit with the HEXB - if anyone can give me some pointers I'd be grateful.

    Have a great day everyone

    Porridge made with water who knew!!!

    Morning everyone - I have a spring in my step today, did a zumba class last night, I'm knackered and ache in every way possible but feel great if that makes sense. bring on the step class on Saturday morning!

    My starter pack came last night and all of a sudden it's all much clearer, I'm making small adjustments today in my choices so very happy. I can't believe that I've never wanted to do this before, always wanted the quick fix that doesn't work. i can't believe how much healthy stuff I'm eating and how much of it is completely free, it's all pretty amazing to be honest. Had the most amazing casserole last night the husband made from really lean stewing beef, carrots, shallots, chopped swede and onion with fresh cabbage, brussel sprouts and mashed swede on the side - the syn for the packet was 6, split 3 ways is only 2 syns for such a lovely meal I can't believe how badly I've been eating when I could have had all this.

    So my food diary for today:

    EE day (I think that will pretty much be me all the time)

    HEX A - 350ml milk
    HEX B - 28g porrige

    Breakfast - porridge made with water with 1 level tbsp of raisins (I'm counting 1 syn), punnet of raspberries. Milky coffee made half and half from milk allowance, feels really indulgent and like I'm having a nice coffee from a coffee shop

    Lunch - left over casserole, I pointed 3 for it yesterday intending for it to be split two ways but there was enough left over for me so I'm only pointing 1 today (yummy, yummy). Melon, pineapple, activia yoghurt, plum

    Dinner - big salad, smoked makerel (for the last time with a salad, I'm horrified to find the smoked version has syns and there is so much other free stuff I can have with salad)

    Snacks - 2 satsumas, 1 plum

    Total syns - 4

    No exercise today, trying to build it up gradually or I'll fail.

    Hope you all have a fun day.
