    Sim Sim's Food Diary

    Hi Everyone!! Newbie here!! Please be nice Going to cut a long story short and say that I have done SW before and lost weight felt great on it but then moved house and could no longer get to my old group, the new group i joined was err well not as good as my old one so i fell off the wagon face first into waaaayyy too much junk food!! And here we are again having tried them all from Cambridge Diet to Low Carb to Macro Counting and years of misery of being overweight!

    Decided to go alone with SW I have all the material and I have been lurking on here as a guest for a little while now!! Going to upload my diaries here to hold myself accountable! Please feel free to point out if i'm not doing things right

    I started properly on Monday but I will start with today's food diary:

    Yesterday I had no HEXb's and woke up with a migraine so decided to have two today:

    B - Overnight Oats HEXb - 30gms Oats in milk from HEXa, Fat Free Yogurt with Banana and honey and a bit of cinnamon - i think i went over a teaspoon so i am giving it 2 syns

    L - Two Eggs, Baked Beans on w/m bread HEXb

    Snacks - Popcorn 46 Cals - 2.5 syns, some dark choc, the material says its 6.5 syns for 25 gms mine weighed 19 so i'll say its 6 syns

    Dinner, I have left over rice from last night so thinking of making some syn free burgers with that, maybe add some beans and veggies and an egg have that with SW chips and salad

    So as long as i stick to this i will end my day on 10.5 Syns

    I am hoping that keeping my syns around 10 per day gives me a bit of leverage incase i have forgotten something or get it wrong every now and again!

    I started having hormonal migraines on tuesday so I havent done any exercise for a few days either lets see how I feel when i get home might do some Tae Bo!

    Ended yesterday on 16.5 syns as i caved into a couple of jaffa cakes, so need to stay focused today!!

    Having stalked and lurked around the forum for a bit yesterday and read other people's diary i realised yesterday was the old style green day! as i had no meat while i was right to have my second HEXb i didnt have two HEXa's because i was in bed by the time i realised!!

    B- Half a papaya, Banana, Half a passionfruit yogurt and green tea

    L - Is left overs from yesterday, Syn free Veggie burger, SW chips, 2 small slices of w/m bread HEXb and 30 gms of cheese HEXa salad of lettuce tomato and cucumber on the side.

    D - Haven't yet decided but i'm thinking either spanish omlette and salad or pasta veg and salad!!

    Snacks - I have brought 30 gms of Oats HEXb and will have that with me HEXa allowance of Milk

    I have a Nakd Bar for 7 syns too!!

    Hoping for a better day i didnt work out last night as my head was still throbbing! but I am alot better today so I am planning to go to the gym!! Hoping for a better food and exercise day today!!

    Well yesterday ended as a bit of disaster!! I left work and realised I had no house keys, my son is away at my sister in laws today and hubby wasnt due home till 8 so he said he would be pick me up from town on his way home!! So fine all was still calm! I went for a coffee had a bit of popcorn - 7 syns for both and had a mooch around the shops!! which is when reality sunk in, I feel so heavy, I can no longer shop for clothes i like i have to buy whatever fits I nearly burst into tears in new look and found myself noticing how awful certain things look on me, not just that but how tired i felt how much my feet hurt and so on.

    Anyway so 8pm I met hubby and he suggested we eat out as we are already in town so we decided on Nando's I opted for butterfly chicken no skin, spicey rice and coleslaw thinking that ok I know I will be over my syn allowance but its it wont be too bad, this then turned into a few chips from hubby's plate a bite of his carrot cake and one of them custard pastry syns!! When i got home i reflected on all those bad choices I made... I should have gone to ASK or Zizzi and had a tomato and veggie based pasta with salad, yesterday was supposed to be a green day and I should not have even touched dessert!

    I have no idea how bad the Syns are in alll that I ate yesterday but I have decided not to have any syns today will try and go syn free tomorrow as well and maybe a day or so after that, I might do EESP for a couple of days to try and rectify it all!!

    On the plus side i did walk loads yesterday and my new portable DVD player has arrived so i can start my workout DVDs!! and tomorrow I have an hours boot camp and half hour PT session in the morning!

    Hiya

    Food sounds great but just wanted to give you a heads up on hex's as I know they'd changed when i rejoined from what they used to be. Oats are now 35g as a HexB and most of the cheeses are more than 30g unless they're full fat xx

    Well looks like today is an EE day...

    B - Porridge Oats 30gm but will up that to 35 now! and Milk so HEX A and B gone

    L - Ainsley Harriot Tomato and garlic cous cous, salad chicken and half a bag of mixed leaves

    D - I was really looking forward to spending some of my syns on fish fingers together with mash and beans!! now i think i might just have mash beans and some veg on the side

    I have two small easy peeler oranges and a small box of pineapple to get through today... does anyone know if this counts as my 1/3 portion of fruit and veg for dinner?? Feeling the need for some real comfort food!

    Syns - Hoping there are none in the cous cous in which case its a lovely round zero!!

    Completely missed the post before mine lol. Don't worry about a bad day and don't punish yourself by going without syns! Just draw a line under your day/meal and carry on, one meal off plan shouldn't make too much difference. My advice would be to have at least the recommended 5 syns minimum every day regardless of what you've eaten the day before as going without syns can be just as damaging to your weight loss.

    My consultant said that fruit after your meal doesnt count as your 1/3. At a push, you can eat your fruit before your meal as its all about filling up on sp food xx

    Btw the couscous is 3 syns per pack providing you don't add butter or oil xx

    Yeah it didn't post straight away maybe it's a newbie thing....

    Thanks for clarifying the fruit thing!! Yesterday's dinner was a right mish mash did sw chips with stir fried onions peppers and carrots and as star week arrived today too i was craving chocolate so i melted the smallest bag of buttons 75 cals so 4 syns over slices of banana and that hit the spot! I did also have a small piece of cake as my son made it I'm going to guestimate it 8 syns it was about the size a mini muffin

    Today's breakfast is:

    Porridge and green tea i have boot camp and pt session in an hour!! Woop woop!!

    Lunch: something eggy!! Yummers

    Dinner: indian most likely
