    Back to what I know best - Slimming World Extra Easy, Original and Green days! ♥

    Those who have followed my previous diary will know that I have been struggling SO bad recently with this whole dieting / losing weight thing.

    For those who don't know my story, I had previously followed Slimming World for around 3 years and had slowly but surely lost over 4st. But then I found SW became a bit restrictive for me and that I needed to try something new and with a bit more freedom - which is when I decided to give 5:2 / The Fast Diet a go.

    I have 100% loved 5:2 and the freedom of it all, particularly when Warren and I want to have a 'treat'. It's been lovely to go out for meals and drinks out and not worry about where we can and can't go to fit in with my Syns. I succesfully lost 1st 7lb in just six weeks following it, however I have regained that and more after struggling to stick to plan over Christmas, New Year and the majority of January. Although I found SW had become quite strict, I have actually decided that at this moment in time I actually need that structure in my life again. Not having the structure and "rules" there isn't helping me very much at the moment. I've noticed I've been eating so much more processed food and 'rubbish' whilst following 5:2 - something which I never did with Slimming World. I want to be eating fresh, healthy food again. Cooking my meals from scratch. It has been far too easy to choose ready meals and pre-packaged food on 5:2, because as long as they were within my calories that was fine. I wasnít really eating healthily though, and I feel that it kind of defeats the objective. What is the point of losing weight and wanting to look good if I'm still actually really unhealthy!?

    So, Iíve decided Iím going to give SW a go again! I wonít be going back to group or anything Ė just doing it myself from memory at home. And hopefully with the support from Mini's and my IG friends. Iíll be sticking to the old EE, Red and Green plans rather than the new EESP Ė as I know them like the back of my hand and, after all, I did lose 4st doing so.

    Iím still probably going to track calories, just because itís become more of a habit than anything. And itís really helped me with my portion sizes Ė which was one thing I always struggled with whilst following SW. I would eat enormous portions to the point where I was stuffed and unable to move, just because food was "Free". That's something I want to avoid this time around.

    I may also combine SW and 5:2 from time to time, and throw in the odd Fast day when I feel like I need a boost. I'm not sure yet, just trying to figure things out at the moment really and find my "happy place". I don't want to complicate things just yet, so for now I'm going back to basics with SW!

    This also might not be the best week to restart things, as Iím away for the weekend and itíll definitely be alcohol fuelled. Most likely with hangover food too! But I wanted to be honest with you all and I also canít leave this any longer. Iím driving myself crazy with all of the messing around Iíve been doing. And besides Ė 5 days on plan would be better than 0 days, right!?

    Warren (my boyfriend of almost 7 months) and I have decided that we're going to go to Fuerteventura in September for our second holiday together. We're booking on Friday I think! We like to go September time as it's our anniversary - but it's also good for me as it gives me that bit longer to give my head a shake and sort things out!! My aim for this year is just to look (and feel) better in my bikini's than I did last year.

    My new weigh day will be a Tuesday morning, from my scales at home. Although I forgot to weigh this morning, but would guess I'm around about 12st 12lb, maybe even as heavy as 13st again now. BUT I am not 15st+ like I once was. I may have had a little relapse, but I have not totally undone all of my work.

    So, that's me in a nutshell! And this is my new food diary where I'm hoping I will keep myself on track. If anyone wants to read and join me in my journey, you are more than welcome and the support is always greatly appreciated. Here goes!

    Thank you so much! I am just tucking into my mango for breakie and it feels sooo good to be eating fresh food again already! I had become so reliant on the Oat So Simple porridge pots, just for convenience more than anything. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed fruit for breakfast. Here's to new beginnings xxx

    You are all so amazing!! Thank you for just reading my rants and moans and episodes of feeling sorry for myself over the years and not giving up on me - even when I have wanted to give up on myself. I have said it many times before, but the support on here really is second to none! xxx


    Actually, while I'm posting. Would anyone with access to the SW website mind doing me a quick favour please? I'd just like to double check a few things...

    - Blue Diamond Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk - can this be used as a HExA? - If so, how much?
    - Special K Granola. Is 30g of this a HExB? I'm sure it was added to the list not long before I stopped following the plan.
    - Halloumi. Is 35g still a HExA?
    - Nando's - am I still right in thinking that plain Butterfly Chicken with skin removed is 3 Syns? And then 0.5 Syns per tbsp of their sauces? I'll be having it with mixed leaf salad and corn on the cob (minus butter) which I believe are both SuperFree / Free.

    Many thanks in advance!! x

    Good luck Extra Easy is just that, though give the SP a try once or twice a week, does help with knocking off a few lbs.

    I'm doing the plan from home, so I don't have the new books or information I would need for EESP. It does look like it's very similar to Success Express though, which I have done in the past and would do again if I needed the boost. I'm not interested in going back to group or trying the new plan if I'm honest. For now I am happy to just stick to basics and what I know works for me - I had previously lost 4st with EE, Original and Green and as the saying goes, "if it isn't broken, don't try and fix it" x
