Some people may remember me from a few years ago. I managed to lose 6.5 stone in 9 months and it was super easy. I maintained for a year before giving into work stress and emotional eating. So now I'm back, not to where I started but with around 2.5 stone to lose.
I have a new job that I love and live in a new city that I love but for some reason it's been so much harder this time round. I've been failing at SW spectacularly for 8 months now, losing around 7lbs before putting it all back on again. I decided enough was enough at my last weigh in. I know that when I focus I can do this, I've done it before. I know I'm using every difficult meal that crops up as an excuse to stuff my face and I just want to fit into all the nice clothes I bought. So, I decided to get back onto SW the way I did before, and this forum was a big part of the support for me. I used to follow the plan religiously, write up all my meals and best of all, stuff my face with tasty food. So that's what I'm going to do. And what better way to start than with a new food diary? Here goes
As I'm vegan, I always stick to the Green plan.
Breakfast - Well...I said I was doing it like before...and I never remembered to have breakfast back then either!
Lunch - "Tuna" Rice Salad (mashed chickpeas with syn free tofu mayo, gherkins, spring onion, rice, grated carrot, cherry tomatoes and seaweed) with 2 slices of marmite on wholemeal toast (B). Then I had a handful of strawberries.
Snack - 2 bananas and a clementine. Choices dairy free buttons (7 syns)
Dinner - Leftover sausage casserole (Fry's sausages (free), onion, garlic, pepper, tinned tomatoes, veg stock, aubergine, mushrooms) stirred into gnocci (5 syns)
Drinks - tea with soya milk (A) and apple cordial
