Glittermonkey's new leaf
Hi everyone and a happy healthy new year! I have had diarys here in the past. I have been on every diet going and eaten my way up to 19 stone. Very shocking BUT I have changed. I suffered terribly with depression in the past and through a lot of therapys I can finally say I am starting to love myself! I also want to start a family but want to shift the weight first, so this is an exciting year and I'm ready for the journey! I'm looking forward to chatting to you all.
I will also add as many pics as I can. My day was a bit haywire as I'm studying for exams, but here's what I ate
BREAKFAST.......belvita fruit biccys and options hot chocolate
Lunch........no time, eek! Will do better tomorrow
Dinner. .......sw chicken korma made by my OH

Hi glittermonkey, well done on getting back to it.
I am lucky enough that my OH loves cooking me slimming world recipes!! It's hugely helpful to have that kind of support xx
Hi Glitter, welcome back! x
It is skinnygirltobe the support is fantastic! Thanks everyone 😊
I got a pedometer and have to say I find it very encouraging to have a target to reach even if it's raining out I can Mar h on the spot lol. I walked my 10,000 steps today so delighted with that. It works out at just over 7 km so not bad for a days work!
Studying again so food not as planned as I would have liked. I did take a break to make some syn free onion bhajis to go with yesterday's chicken korma have to say i was actually shocked at how similar it was to real bhajis without the use of oil or gram flour. Really simple too! There's a great video on youtube if anyone's interested. So here's my day
Breakfast.......diet energy drink (I know, I know)
Lunch.......homemade veg soup
Dinner.........chicken korma and two sw bhajis
Snack......options hot chocolate, choc belvita and a mullerlight
6 syns today...not bad! Need to make bigger effort with brekky tho
Did my 10,000 steps again today woo hoo! Here was my food
Brekky...belvita bikkys 7 syns
Lunch......Small pitta with salad and leftover sw korma sauce
Dinner......sw burger and chips and big salad. omg the slimming world burger was yum!!
Snacks........belvita, options. Had 16 syns today oops!
Notice I'm not having any fruit ill have to change that.. need to stop just reaching for belvita in the morning. Breakfast just makes me feel ill. Been watching that Katie Hopkins show about weight has anyone seen it? She really is a horrible woman! Dying for my first official weigh in on Wednesday. Other half doing well on his diet too although he will not ditch full sugar Pepsi for anything. Drives me mad. ..diabetes in a bottle!

Breakfast/lunch...............bacon and cheese omlette
Dinner............The most delicious Asian marinaded salmon stir fry.
Snacks......options, mousse, belvita, mullerlight.
Hope your all smiling!
I am super proud of myself today I did........ (drumroll)......20,000 steps! My legs are knackered now as it's over 10k worth of walking 😂
I forgot how much I loved to stick on some upbeat music and go for a nice long walk, it's great for clearing out your mind cobwebs!
Today I ate:
Bacon and cheese salad with dressing of mayo and fromage frais
My OH made a gorgeous surf n turf with a whiskey glaze with parsnips and green beans (didn't eat the mash)
Anyone know the syns for about a half a shot of whiskey? Xxx
Most shots of spirits are 4 syns I think! X
I watched the Katie Hopkins programme and she is an awful woman but she was right about children should not be going to school overweight. Some do have medical problems but most dont and it is often parents poor choices. I work hard to make sure my two ( 2 and 1) are active as I would hate for them to pick up bad habits and become overweight. My weight issues began As a teen and I dont want that for them.
Your dinner choices are tasty sounding!
Got weighed this morning and down 2 1/2. Happy enough with that but for some reason feel a bit.....disappointed? That's the wrong word perhaps. I think I was expecting a bigger number, but at least I'm out of the 19s now down to 18 . 12 so I need a kick up the bum and should be delighted.
My food so far
Breakfast.......kippers, egg and mushrooms
Lunch........ banana and 2 hifi bars as I was on the go
Dinner will be pork in hot garlic sauce with "fried" noodles
I am in love with the chocolate hi fi bars!
My consultant also told us that SW are bringing out a range of ready meals that as far as she knows will be syn free! There to be in Iceland from the end of Feb and apparently include syn free sausages that don't taste as dry as the mallons ones.. exciting!
Nemesis one thing that boils my blood is really overweight children it's such a hardship to impose on a child!
2.5lb down is great but I understand the little bit of deflation you felt. In the past I would have felt the same especially ghven the steps you were doing. Its all in the right direction though!!
I bought those choc hi fi bars for the first time and had 2 today. Really are a delicious treat!
There's a thread in here about the ready meals. They also include curries like chicken tikka according to the pics posted. Handy for me with shift work!
Ooh that is handy, dying to try them when I'm super busy. I bought the choc and the salted caramel. Didn't realise till after I ate one that the caramel one are SIX syns per bar!
