Breakfast: Bacon, scrambled eggs, mushroom, brown sauce (1 syn)
Lunch: Leftover Quiche & SW chips
Dinner: Leg of Lamb, Smash, cabbage, carrots, yorkshire pud (2 syns), gravy (2 syns)
Snacks & Healthy Extras: Sharon fruit x 2, banana, mint temptations biscuits bar (8 syns), 250 mls semi-skimmed milk (used in Smash) and 2 x Weetabix with a muller yoghurt poured over
Very annoyed with the app and my stupid self. Bought a boil-in-the-bag lamb joint in Aldi and checked the syns on my app which I thought was 7 for the pack, but when I have double checked it on laptop, it's 11.5 just for one half! So I've given it to DH for his tea and I'm just having plain leg of lamb.

Day 7 (weigh-in tonight - will update this post if anyone is interested)
Breakfast: Banana, 2 x pears, 1 x apple
Lunch: 1 x mugshots
Dinner: 2 x rashers bacon, 3 x boiled eggs with brown sauce (1 syn)
Snacks & Healthy Extras: 2 x alpen light bars, 30g cheddar, Breakaway (5 syns), Muller, grapes, strawberries, leftover curry loaf
I have been deliberately keeping my first week basic and boring (although everything has been delicious) so next week I will add in two new meals that I can also make for the whole family. There are some nice recipes in the freebie leaflets that came with the Daily Mirror and my mum has been saving for me.
I also worry that I may not be having enough super free with my main meals, so plan to rectify that next week.
DH also got really snotty with me last night because he refuses to believe that on a diet one can eat as much as I have been doing these past couple of days and he thinks "being supportive" = making snidey little remarks like "should you be eating that?" and rolling his eyes in a disinterested way when I try to explain about free and super free

Feels like I'll be eating loads today - hope I've lost some weight at the scales tomorrow.
Diet coke chicken was a disaster - it was meant to taste of BBQ but it just tasted like Gravy. Won't be doing it again...
