Diary of a frustrated twenty something...
Hello Mini Mins!
My name is Charlotte and I'm 26 years old, I've been following diets on and off for probably the past six years and usually drop a stone and a bit and then give in. This year I am going on my first holiday with the fella and being a maid of honour for my best friends wedding so I really want this to be the year that I drop the 3 stone I need to drop in order to fit into a nice size 10! I've been following Slimming World strictly for the last 3 days and when I took a naughty sneaky look at the scale this morning and I seem to have gained a pound?! :( I am not attending a group until Feb as money is tight this month so I wondered if I have been doing something wrong which led me to starting this here diary! I also thought this might help me to stay on track! I'll write down what I ate yesterday and if anyone could point out what I'm doing wrong that would be fantastic! :) I haven't got any fry light so I'm using oil - wondering if this could be something to do with it even though I am using my syns for it? Anyway, here goes...
Starting weight (Thursday 2nd Jan) - 12st 5lb
Food for Sat 4th Jan - Extra Easy
Mushrooms (SF), 2 eggs scrambled (F), Bacon (F), dash of whole milk (HxA), 1 x slice wholemeal bread (HxB), 1 x tsp marg (2syns)
1 x nectarine (SF), Aldi Brooklea fat free vanilla yoghurt (2 syns)
Chicken Curry - Chicken (F), Fat free natural yoghurt (F), curry powder (F), mushrooms (SF), Green pepper (SF), chopped tomatoes (SF), chicken stock (F), sweet potato (F), butternut squash (SF) brown rice (F), 1 x tsp oil (2 syns)
3 x Werthers Original Chewy Toffee's (4.5 syns)
Total Syns - 10.5
That seems like a lot for tea but as most of it was SF veg I think that's ok?! Possibly I ate too much at tea time and that caused the gain?
If anyone could tell me where I'm going wrong that would be great! I must from now on not get on the scales until my official weigh in on Thursday as I know that scale hopping can be damaging, I immediately wanted a packet of crisps this morning as I though well, whats the point. I won't though, I'm staying strong!
I'm now going to write a food plan for the next week which should all be fine with the exception of Weds where I am travelling and attending a client meeting all day - hopefully I can pick up some fruit on the train and they will provide a semi healthy lunch!
I'll be back on to update with todays food later!
