    New to MiniMins - not new to SW!

    Hello MiniMins

    I'm new here, but very used to relying on SW to help me lose a few pounds now and then. I rarely stick at it, but I know it does work for me - better than starving myself on a low calorie diet, that makes me moody!

    I got married 18 months ago, and I put on every pound I lost for that, plus about the same again as I switched pills. I'm now blessed with no TOTM, but I carry an extra half a stone for the privilege!

    So... I could do with losing a stone, but my target in kilos is to lose 7 kilos.

    Currently weighing in at the top end of the 64s, rather than the 67 I was before my recent walking-heavy holiday.

    Fingers crossed...

    Really pleased today that even with weight-wobbling, I'm 2kg lighter already. Going to be good today, yesterday was a naughtier day than I had hoped. Red day for me today.

    Yummy bacon and cheese toasty just now with a kind of tomato sauce salsa-y thing I made from tinned tomatoes, garlic, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tomato purée, stock cube, splenda and some herbs. Yum yum. Adapted for the husband with bagels instead of WW bread, best not force him to do SW!

    Thanks for visiting my thread! I think writing things down helps with remembering what was nice, what was worth all the effort to make and what sucked and should never be made again! Keep up the good eating you're doing x

    I've eaten so much today, but I'm lying in bed trying to go to sleep and I'm hungry. Hmmm.

    I noticed Kellogg's nutrigrain biscuits today - are just two of them worth using up a hexb or are they best avoided?

    Green day tomorrow, crust-less quiche already cooked and in the fridge

    Making Mothers Day lunch worried me - potential for lots of syns!!! Roast chicken dinner with syns for gravy and two Yorkies. Then I made this for pudding:

    All in, I think I kept to about 15 syns today including a couple of cinzano and lemonades. Proud of myself.

    The dessert was very much enjoyed by my diabetic relative!

    Survived Pizza Hut buffet lunch today - two tiny slices of pizza, pasta and loads and loads of salad. Yum.

    So this week has been bad - my last week at my old job so a leaving do full of cookies, gin and curry (yummy!) and that was after the pizza hut buffet. Then the next day as my husband's birthday, now we're away for a week. We're self-catering though so I've brought a load of my stuff with me. Just made paella, but that doesn't help the chocolate cake earlier. If I get home and I've maintained, that will please me!

    I know, I just feel guilty! Too much going on all at the same time at the moment though. I start a new job on Monday, so I'll turn over a new leaf

    Back from a week's holiday, self-catering. An attempt at slimming world most of the week, with calorie counting on bad days to keep them not too bad, and I've lost half a pound. Very pleased.

    Loving the My Fitness Pal app - now I can monitor my calories alongside doing SW. I know it's not the point, but it all helps. I'm a dataholic!
