    Shell's 2014 food diary - third time lucky!

    Ok so here I am, restarting a diary for the third time. I haven't really stuck to plan since before christmas now. I'm at the heaviest weight I have ever been, 3.5 stone above my lowest and ideal weight. This is shocking me actually working this out and writing it down, but that's exactly the reason why I think a diary will help me. Facing up to reality, and being honest with myself.

    We have just bought our first house but it's somewhat of a building site. So we are staying at my parents house at the moment, have been for a few months. This doesn't help with food as they are not health conscious in the slightest - too much temptation around. But also, they don't have a full length mirror... On Thursday I was in the fitting rooms in new look, trying to squeeze myself into a size 12 top (haven't bought new clothes in a while so this was a wake up call in itself), when I gave up the fight I looked at myself in the mirror and was truly shocked...

    ...Here I am!

    Food diary will start today. I am working the late shift of 3 pm - 11 pm which is sometimes hard, but got to start somewhere, may as well be today!

    Well that lasted all of 5 minutes... ?

    I'm hoping now that the new year is here I can use this as a turning point once and for all. I have lots of plans for this year and next, and shifting some excess weight is crucial. So no more messing about.

    2015 WILL see a slimmer me.

    Good luck to you all for the new year and losing any Xmas gains.

    Saturday 10th January

    Weigh in this morning, 1lb loss. Not spectacular but a loss nonetheless. And not bad considering I've not done a full week on plan yet. Didn't start properly until Tuesday / Wednesday, so I'll take that.

    Today's food plan ... (May change)

    Breakfast

    Whole meal roll (HEB)
    Bacon
    Egg
    Tbsp tomato ketchup (1 syn)
    Side of button mushrooms

    Lunch

    Jacket potato
    Tuna
    Leftover tomato/onion/ cucumber salad from last night

    Dinner

    Maybe a treat of small fish and chips from chip shop (20 syns) but haven't decided if I really want it yet or not. Will see how I feel later!

    A loss is a loss! I've always been a slow loser even when I'm 100% on plan. We'll get there eventually.

    Food looks good! X

    Thank you Sam

    Sunday 11th

    Breakfast

    Honeydew melon
    Muller light

    Lunch

    Tuna rice salad
    - tuna, rice, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, chillis, coriander, lime juice

    Dinner

    At parents for roast dinner

    Lamb, broccoli, green beans, peas, carrots, leeks, Yorkshire pudding (2.5 syns), roast potatoes (4 syns), gravy (3 syns)

    Had puddings in the fridge leftover from Xmas ... Sticky mince pie pudding... Heaven knows the syn content.. I had a fairly small piece. I'll estimate 15 syns. Plus low fat custard (5 syns)

    Supper

    Pickled onions
    Cheese (HEA)
    Crisp breads (HEB)

    Total : 29.5 syns.

    Not a great weekend, but nowhere near as bad as it could have been. Their house is still full of chocolates and biscuits and all things yummy. So I'm pleased that although I had more syns than I should, I stayed in control
