    Ooh I'd like to join here too please :-) I've been back on SW for 5 weeks now - I was crazy enough to start 2 weeks before Christmas! But although I gained 2lbs over new year, I'm still sitting 7lb lighter than when I started. I almost always do green days so this thread will be really useful. I did find it tough getting back into the mindset at first, and having to cook things from scratch a lot more. But I feel much healthier, and I'm not missing meat at all thanks to quorn and Linda McCartney! If I really want meat I have the occasional EE day.

    I rarely have two hex-a's so I'll have to start addressing that! I take it you use it for cheese?

    Hi Could I join in please? Went to SW a couple of years back and lost 2 stone but have now put it back on again. I'm going to join up again tomorrow so would like some support as I'm dreading the weigh in. I will be doing the green as I'm a veggie. Hubby is also going to do it with me although he won't be going to meetings. I think the hardest thing I found was finding something to eat at lunchtime, I usually cook with Quorn for dinner and I still have my SW recipe books so Im ok for dinners.

    Hi Shary :-) I struggle with lunches too - especially when I'm working away from my usual office. At least I have a canteen there where I can buy a baked potato if all else fails! I often make extra pasta or whatever the night before and take the leftovers to work for lunch. Do you have a microwave at work? I hope it will be easier in the summer as I'll take a salad most days! :-)

    Lunches were always my biggest issue, usually just stuck to pasta/couscous and salad, with babybels and mullerlight. Got boring after a while though. Right now I'm not working, so it's a bit easier for me, but I know once I'm back at work I'll have the same issues.

    Looks like I'm having an EE day today though, ended up in Subway for lunch and had turkey and ham salad. At least I did it before I had my HExs today, so know I can just have one of each now. Have an awesome veggie cottage pie to look forward to for dinner though.

    Well done on your loss you can use it for cheese and milk. Babybells are brilliant as I just chomp on them if I'm hungry or just have a glass of milk xxx

    I'm finding the "A's" very difficult as i'm lactose intolerant and don't like the milk alternatives or cheese that much as they give me an awful stomach and diahhroea..... Must experiment! :-) lol

    The recipe for Quorn sausages was changed, within the last year or so I believe, so they are no longer syn-free. Any of these updates that come up, we'll definitely keep you informed though

    Raven - if you're looking for some syn-free sausages, then Linda McCartney red onion frozen sausages are really yummy :-) The texture is even less 'sausagy' than the quorn ones, but they're really tasty. I'm eating a lot of quorn, but the only quorn that's free from what I can see are the fillets, pieces, and mince.

    Hope that helps! :-)

    I bought that book for 1.95 bargain. I take it with me and of I feel hungry I can route through and buy 'free' things. Easier than going online and standing at an item putting the details in and taking forever to load lol xxx
