Battling my own Nemesis
As the title says, I have got to take stock of my life and make the changes I desperately need to make. Since I was 22/23, weight has crept on steadily. I remember hitting 15 stone and being horrified. 7 years on from there, I'm now over 17 stone and can't believe I got this size. I had two little boys in quick succession but I was one of those weird women who lost weight during pregnancy, not gain any!! Its just been poor daily choices that's been my downfall. That and no will power or self control. Now is when I take stock for the last time! I joined just prior to Christmas which was an awful idea and last week weighed 1.5lbs more than my first week! Tomorrow is weigh in day and I'm feeling hopeful that I'm finally journeying the right way!! Menu is planned for next week and I'm planning mix of EE and SP days for a good boost! Fingers crossed.
Today I had:
Lunch - Skinni Pork Link Sausages x 2, fried egg in a wholemeal roll (Hex B). Sausages were free.
Tea - 2 x Skinni Beef Olives, roasted new potatoes', piles of peppers, leeks. Beef Olives also free.
Snacks - mullerlight, low low cheese slices ( Hex A), fruit
Hiya just here to wish you best of luck with your weigh in. You should feel proud of yourself when I gained I left the whole class like an idiot! Joined back now plus an extra stone! Just thought I'd say good luck anyhow! 😊
Hey, here to sub
Good luck with your restart!! xx
I too used to leave if I had any gain but I'm sick of feeling this way and a gain can be learned from!
I weighed in today and lost 5lbs so am absolutely delighted. So delighted that I ruined my day by having a sweet chilli chicken burger and fried for lunch as I was on a work related road trip and we stopped at services. It just shows that I need to plan right down to the last detail.
Tea was an improvement... Lean pork chops with Italian herbs and veg.
Tomorrows menu is planned so I'm back in track. At least it was a bad meal and not a bad full day x
5 lbs? That's fantastic! Well done I'm delighted you had such a great loss. And having a healthy meal after a bad one can be an achievement in itself!
Thanks! It helped that my boyfriend cooked tea otherwise id have ended up calling pizza or something! Just away to put pork in slow cooker to make pulled pork tonight, really hoping to stick to plan this week!
Do you have a diary gluttermonkey? I cant search very well on this phone (probably me, not the phone!)
Lol I'm the same I got a tablet in November and am completely useless at navigating this site! Here's my diary so far http://www.minimins.com/showthread.php?t=348489 (Glittermonkey's new leaf) well I hope so lol ooh let me know how the pulled pork turns out I adore my slow cooker!
Today I managed to stick to plan so had an EE day.
Hex A - not had any
Hex B - 2 Hifi Bars
Tea - Pulled Pork with Smokey Sauce (recipe from latest magazine), Broccoli, Cauliflower and roast new potatoes'.
Also made some curried Carrot & Coriander Soup for later as I'm nightshift tonight!
Spent some syns on some shortbread so guessing about 8/10

Ooh pulled pork looks yum. My OH makes his pulled pork in the sauce in the slow cooker, does a whole joint in the slow cooker taste nice? Sounds yum
It was lovely but we used a Loin fillet we had in the freezer and I think it was too nice a cut if that makes sense. Recipes usually say the shoulder and I'll stick with that next time for a deeper taste!
Today, there was no breakfast due to being on nightshift and sleeping in the morning.
Lunch was Ham & Egg cups from the Mirror supplement earlier in the week. They were lovely but I did burn the edges as I guessed oven temp too high. Rest of it was delicious.
Tea was pasta made with dairylea light, leeks, bacon, tuna and cherry tomato's.
Snacks were 2 hi fi bars, mullerlight and some fruit later on.
Today was another day coming off nightshift and no food pics taken!
Lunch: Again i had Ham & Egg Cups
Tea: There's a local butcher who offer a huge selection of lean meat and dishes which are no or very low syn. The family who own it are SW friendly which is amazing. Tea was a Jack Daniel glazed burger which if it has any syns was very low, maybe one or two. Also had some of their Mac Cheese which is free on syns as long as i count the cheese as my Hex A which i did. Didnt have veg in but followed straight away with fruit to make up for the lac of veg!
Snacks: Small bag of maryland cookies and small bag of crisps - result of tiredness! nightshifts are a killer!!
Attempted an SP day and hoping I got it right!!
Brunch was fried egg, mushrooms and cherry tomatos
Tea was bbq flavoured beef/frying steak with peppers, mushrooms and peas!
Snacks were satsumas x3, cheese on toast to use my Hex A and Hex B, Malteaster Bunny (8 syns), one Hi Fi Bar (second Hex B)
Quick post as bed is calling! Weigh in day tomorrow and so nervous! Would love 2lbs off to give me my half stone but cant predict it!
Lunch was back medallions, mushrooms, tomatoes, fried egg and the sausages are a fat and syn free Chinese chicken flavour! Delicious
Tea was homemade egg fried rice with broccoli and on top was syn free Thai red chicken made by local SW friendly butcher. Mammoth portion which I didn't finish.
Haven't had my Hex A or Hex B today and wont be now as I'm hoping for some sleep if my toddlers let me!!
Syns = 10 as had 4 segments of chocolate orange... Tasty but not worth 10 syns!!!
