My countdown to the big 3-0 starts here!
Iím a bit new to this so not really sure where to start but here goes.
I started SW back in November and my weightloss has been a bit up and down since then Ė Iíve lost one week and put on the next since I started. Now that weíre into the new year, itís time to for me to get serious about it. The last few weeks have been pretty hard, obviously weíve had Christmas and New Year but on top of that Iíve had birthdays and leaving parties as well. All l in all, I suppose I should be pretty happy with my total weightloss so far.
Itís taken me until now to decide on my target and now Iíve got 2! I turn the big 3-0 in July and Iíd love to have lost 2st by then. Iíve also got a trip to Florida to look forward to in October and if I can lose a further Ĺ stone by then Iíd be over the moon. Last time I was there was back in 2004 and Iím pretty sure I was about 11st so it would be great to be about the same again.
I know I can lose the weight, Iíve done it before and this time Iíve got even more motivation. I did Scottish Slimmers at home about 7 years ago and lost about 2st but gradually Iíve put it back on, plus a little extra! This time, Iíve got my two targets to work toward plus Iím going to classes with my sister and so thatís a big help.
Wish me luck...
A bit of a naughty night...
I didn't post yesterday but stuck to the plan really well having plenty of superfree and free and using my HexA and B. Even counting the chocolate bar that I couldn't resist after dinner, I stuck to 11Ĺ syns. All good.
I've slipped up a bit tonight though. I've stuck to the plan so well all week, having plenty of superfree, some free, my HexA and Bs and sticking to around 10ish syns per day. I knew I had some friends coming round tonight and had already dug out the lovely biscuits I got for Christmas and checked the syn values so I knew which were my best options for me. Some of the girls brought nibbles with them though and, not wanting to seem rude, or go on about how I'm on SW (nothing worse than a diet bore when you're not dieting!!), I thought I'd be fine to have just a few. We had a good old girly gossip and before I knew it I'd had loads without even realising. I've gone waaaaaaay over my syns for today, oops! I'm a bit frustrated with myself for my lack of control (that's a me thing, not just when it comes to SW!) but I know it's not the end of the world and tomorrow will be here soon enough...
So I'll confess to what I've actually had (or at least my best guess)
Breakfast Baked beans on 1 slice wholemeal toast (HexB) and an apple
Mid morning Satsuma
Lunch Lentil and carrot soup and a wholemeal roll (HexB) with 30g cheddar (HexA), salad leaves, tomato and cucumber
Mid afternoon Pear
Dinner Batchelor's cheese & broccoli pasta sauce using 125ml milk from HexA (I'd usually make something nicer but was in a rush to prepare for my visitors)
Evening 50g Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations (13 syns), 25g pack Walkers Salt & Vinegar crisps (6Ĺ syns) some Asda mixed dips (approx. 10 syns) = 29Ĺ
syns - eek!!!
Definitely back on track tomorrow before WI on Wednesday.
