I've just joined SW (online) for the first time and, following a huge supermarket trolley dash for the world's supply of fruit and veg yesterday, I've kicked off my regime today!
I've dabbled in WW before and tried other calorie counting diets etc, but apart from SlimFast (on which I lost 2 1/2st in 3 months back when I was at uni), nothing has really worked for me. My lovely boyfriend and I are going to Cuba on holiday at the end of September and by then I would love to shift 2 stone, which I have worked out to be 1.5lbs a week. I'm really hoping that SW, combined with some exercise, can deliver that.
I'm currently 12st 5lbs and I desperately want to get to around the 10st mark, which is about right for my height (5' 4") and would make me a very happy small size 12.
I've never really posted on a forum before, but I'm hoping that keeping a food diary will help to keep me on the straight and narrow and not succumb to the evil temptation of red wine!
What I'm finding a bit confusing is this green day/red day malarkey (this is fundamental to the plan, I know!) - perhaps I'm just being a bit blonde about it all, or overcomplicating!
Anyway, so far today I've had/am planning:
Breakfast - raspberries, blueberries and 0.1% yoghurt (2syns)
Lunch - salmon salad with fat free dressing
Dinner - turkey breast with ratatouille
Snacks - banana and I might treat myself to 2 pink wafers (4syns)!
As a newbie, I'm still trying to get my head around when I can have what (e.g. today is a red day so could I have had cereal for breakfast?). I've heard mixed reviews of ExtraEasy so I'm hoping to stick to Red/Green for a while and see how I get on with that. I'd also love to hear from anyone about what the best snacks are - fruit, of course, and I've got plenty of that in the house but I travel with work quite a lot and fruit tends to get squashed so something easy I could chuck in my bag would be ideal!
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my random waffle! And please wish me luck!
