    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

    Brunch

    Mushrooms (SF), 2 eggs scrambled (F), Bacon (F), dash of whole milk (HxA), 1 x slice wholemeal bread (HxB), 1 x tsp marg (2syns)

    Afternoon snack

    1 x nectarine (SF), Aldi Brooklea fat free vanilla yoghurt (2 syns)

    Dinner

    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)

    Snack

    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!

    Charlotte x

    I know everyone says it but just try to not weigh yourself until your official day, get someone to hide the,. My boyfriend puts mine somewhere and gets them out every Saturday morning for me and then I know what my weight is once a week. Our body's fluctuate with water etc and it depends if you weighed yourself at a different time of day compared to your starting weigh in. Don't worry it will come off good luck x

    Everything on your food seems alright, not your time of the month coming up or anything?? How about drinking more water so you can get rid of any water you're retaining. you probably already know all this. Good Luck, hope you see a loss next time you get weighed if you keep being good. x

    Today has been another fabulous day on plan, feeling much more positive thanks to the lovely people of Minimis and a talking to from the other half! I'm trying to use most of my syns within my meals instead of on high fat treats just to avoid temptation in the first month or so, I'm also having a dry January so no alcohol for me unless its in my Bolognese sauce! Here is todays food plan...

    Sunday 5th Jan - Extra Easy

    Breakfast

    Bacon & Mushroom Omlette - 2x egg (F), bacon (F), mushrooms (SF), tsp marg (2 syns), 30g cheddar (HxA)

    Lunch

    1 x slice wholemeal bread (HxB), tinned spaghetti (F), 1x nectarine (SF)

    Dinner

    Slimming World Pork & Autumn Veg Pie - carrots (SF), celery (SF), onion & garlic (SF), chopped tomatoes (SF), pork (F), chicken stock (F), potato made with veg stock (F), boiled carrots, cauli & broccoli (SF), honey parsnips (2.5 syns), oil 2x tsp (4 syns), yorkie pud (2.5 syns), Gravy (2 syns)

    Total syns - 13

    That tea sounds massive, but a lot of it was in the pie! Plenty of SF and delicious! Just about to get my lunch prepared for tomorrow - fried rice and veggies - get a bath and snuggle up to watch Celeb BB at 9! Feeling very full and satisfied so sure that I won't be needing anything else later! All in all, a good end to a slightly rubbish beginning of the day!

    Hello ladies!

    Today has been another day on plan - feeling bloody fantastic and more determined than I have been in years! Only two more days until WI so fingers crossed, a little worried about my trip to Andover on Weds and the lunch that might come with it but there's no point worrying until I know what I'm up against! Anyway, ended up having to go on a team lunch with work which I had completely forgotten about so my lovely pre prepared rice dish is still in the fridge in the office ready for tomorrow - sure it will be ok! We went to Weatherspoons so I did a quick Minimins search to see which food would be the best to eat - I wasn't holding my hopes up but saw that the sweet chilli noodles were only 1.5 syns without the chicken (please prove me wrong if this is incorrect!) so I decided that this was probably my best option! They were really yummy and definitely not bad for just over 3 on the saver menu! So here is todays food plan!

    Monday 6th January - Extra Easy

    Breakfast

    1 x nectarine (SF) & Aldi Brooklea fat free raspberry and cranberry yoghurt (2 syns)

    Lunch

    Weatherspoons Sweet Chilli Noodles & Veg (1.5 syns)
    Dinner

    Spaghetti Bolognese Bake - Mince (Aldi less than 12% fat - 2syns), 1 x tsp oil (2 syns), dash of red wine (1 syn), Mushrooms (SF), pasta (F), chopped tomatoes (SF), beef stock (F), onion & garlic (SF), bacon (F), topped with 45g mozzarella (HxA) and 1 x slice of wholemeal bread whizzed into breadcrumbs (HxB)

    Total syns - 8.5

    Dinner was delicious and the bread and mozzarella topping made a nice alternative to the usual mounds of cheese! Still feeling really full and satisfied tonight so no more syns for me. I don't want to speak too soon but could it be that I am finally going to stick to this diet?! I sure hope so!

    Love Charlotte x

    I've had the sweet chilli noodles before I was on SW and wouldn't have guessed they had such a lovely low syn value. Good to know in case I visit anytime soon, it's **** when a diet stops you eating out. Sounds like another good days eating anyway! keep it up babe. xx
