Ally's Diary - take two
My old diary is in the diaries section, but I feel its time to start a new. For the last 2 months I haven't stuck to plan, I've been struggling dealing with everything, i found myself binge eating again, unable to fight my depression off. Thankfully in the 2 months I have have been drifting along, i have only put on a few pound thankfully.
Anyway, so as I said i resorted back to binge eating, and by that i mean, 4 or 5 chocolate bars in one sitting, a stack of biscuits and anything else unhealthy i could get my hands on, barely moving off the sofa at home or office chair in work. How I have not put more than 3 pounds on i'm not sure. But talking to my best friend/guy who possibly wants to be my boyfriend yesterday, I think finally I am ready to at least try and get back into some kind of normality and it kind of struck me that if I am to have any chance of getting on meds for my PCOS that don't either turn me into more or a manic depressive than I already am or cause migraines, then i need to get my butt into gear and get this last 3 stone lost. So first thing first is breaking my binging, so that means getting back onto slimming world, and I am also attempting to get my creative side back into action to stop me eating for the shear hell of it, yesterday I made a soft toy dragon, today I have started another one, I have new knitting naterials on order and a few cross stitches to do, should keep me busy and keep my mind off food.
So, those of you that don't know me, hey, I am Ally (well Alison if you must use my full name), I love music (especially rock, punk and metal, though as my friend got baffled by yesterday I will listen to anything (he found it amusing when one second i was listening to bruno mars and next bullet for my valentine)), crafts, computers and books. I work as a web designer (yes a female web designer shock horror), do a bit of photography, put my hand to all kinds of crafts, love to read, have an obsession with vampires and mythical stuff, own two mad pet rats and I am obsessed with gigs (nothing like a good night out at a gig). Just to warn you, I have an obsession with the band Bowling For Soup who I have met multiple times (i've been hugged and kissed 3 times by the lead singer now and he knows me by name), and I tend to mention them at least twice to day to anyone who will listen (or aren't listening in most cases)
So theres a bit about me if you don't know me...and if you do already know me I HAVE RETURNED.
So lets get down to it, my weigh in is saturday morning at home, I don't go group and not a member on line anymore (though my saturday weigh in has carried on from when i was online). I wasn't exactly on plan yesterday though I was better than I i've been in ages. Today I have been on track though
Breakfast - All bran choc crunch (HEb and some from A), melon
Lunch - Bacon and cheese sandwich (HEb, 1 syn butter, 1/2 HEa for cheese slice), grapes

Drifted slightly off plan yesterday, didn't do too bad though, my sandwiches got a little damaged to i ended up buying prepacked on the motorway services and had a packet of crisps too. Better than the burger king i was considering having. The gig was good, was at the front until part way through second support which was insanely rough and i injured my leg, from there i decided to move back....i now have a bandaged knee, i have a weak knee anyway due to an injury so it didnt do it any good!
Breakfast- Toast (HEb and 2 syns butter)
Lunch- Mini quiches and salad, banana
Tea - Gammon and wedges (only ate 1 as wedge as i wasn't hungry so just going to class as 2 syns)
Snacks - clementine, banana, ww pack of biscuits x2 (9)
Total syns- 13
Right, now I am officially back. I've been struggling the last few months and just pretty much gave up on slimming world, chocolate was pretty much ruling my life. But now its new year and new start, after a week off work I think I finally have my head in the right place again. So I've renewed my online subscription to slimming world since that seemed to help last time, house it pretty much empty of junk food, i have a new wii fit board and set to start kickboxing in a few weeks. Now on the downside...I'm pretty much back to the same weight I was when i started last january. 9 months to get a stone off, 3 months to pile it back on. Thank you cadburys for inventing chocolate. So yep, I am back. Doing a Green Day today.
Breakfast - BBQ Beans on toast, banana
Lunch - Batchelors savoury rice, muller light, apricot x2
Tea - Cheese omelette and beans, plum
HEa - 250ml semi skimmd milk
HEa - 250ml semi skimmed milk
Heb - 1 slice 800g wholemeal bread
HEb - 2 dairylea light cheese slices
Syns - 25g Pringles 6.5 syns, coconut options 2, marshmallows 1
Free snacks - apricot

Happy New Year Ally. I've been AWOL too for ages. 1st day back for months. So depressing that it goes back on so easily and is such a struggle to lose. Think I'm going to have a goat slimpods in earnest this time. Tried them with SW last time and not sure it works that way. Maybe you should try their chocaholic pod lots of reviews say it's really effective.
Anyway hope to be on here more again and I wish you all the best with your endeavours.
Might have to try that PP, if theres one thing i struggle to break its my chocolate addiction, pretty sure its worse than being addicted to alcohol!

Fairly certain my body has gone into detox mode. Stomach ache and feeling sick since last night, yesterday was my first day in months without any chocolate (except the hot chocolate), i've been eating at least 2 bars a day most days since november, or sweets or cake or anything high sugar, but I had none of that yesterday, didn't even crave it. I still have a few Viscounts, 3 bags of doritos and a few tunnocks caramel bars in my desk draw from before xmas, but so far today i've not been tempted by any of it, in the last few weeks before xmas i would have eaten all that by now.

Not amused, my apricots gone off when i got it out my lunch box. I was looking forward to that apricot
Hey there. Just wanted to say good luck on your weight loss journey I'm also a designer!! And I've also met Bowling for Soup a few times! And my boyfriend also thinks I'm a bit mad because my playlists can literally go from the kinks to take that to beethoven and so forth! I'm also sorry to hear about your apricot Hope the rest of the week goes well for you though! x
Hi, thanks. Yay another female designer and yay for BFS Haha, nothing wrong with being diverse in your music choices i say :P Still annoyed about my apricot (ok i'm not that annoyed anymore :P)
