    Laura's final leg....

    I joined slimming world in January 2012 weighing 14stone1/2pound. I have since got down to 10st7 but I am just struggling with the last 5lbs so I thought I would start a diary on here as it may make me more accountable to my binges etc!!

    I did join previously in November 2010 and weighed 11st but really really did not like my consultant so I never went back and needless to say didn't follow the plan and piled an additional 3stone on.

    It all went wrong for me (weight-wise anyway) when I met my partner - yep that old chesnut! I was a size 10-12 before that and had previously lost weight with weightwatchers. I hated feeling deprived though so I thought this time around I would try slimming world.

    My tipping point was xmas/new year. xmas 2011 was our first in our new home and we had taken soooo many photos. My boyfriend went and had them all printed off and I sat and cried. I was much much bigger than I had ever been. and I looked so puffy and unhealthy! So 10th January I walked back into SW (thankfully with a new consultant and my Dad as moral support!)

    I lost 5lbs the first week and while after that my losses have slowed dramatically down I have still had a general downward trend - with a few inevitable gains along the way. Slow and steady wins the race :s haha.

    My partner proposed in October 2012 and it is our wedding 16th November 2013 (yep in less than 4 weeks time!) So my dream is to be at target by then. Then I'll be trying to maintain and decide whether I want to go lower.

    So I am going to try and record food exercise and general feeling around food to try and see if this will help and maybe pinpoint some of my danger zones. I dont mind if no one reads it, more of something for me to see, but if anyone wants to point anything out or have a general chat feel free

    So today so far...weigh in day... Went for my first Couch to 5k run/walk thing. 5k in 30 mins though according to map my run???
    Breakfast I had dorset cereals (heb) a chopped banana and a shape 0%.
    Lunch I had homemade leek and potato soup grapes and another shape 0% yoghurt.
    I have had a headache all day - not sure if its the shock to my system with the run or what? I do always feel when I'm running that my brain is bouncing around in my skull - anyone have any thoughts on this?
    I will be going for weigh in at 7pm and leaving the dinner prepared ready for J to get in oven.
    Tonight we will be having chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with l.cow blue cheese triangles (1/2hea) and sw chips and green beans. and then for desert either another shape yoghurt or I may go wild and blow some syns on a chocolate mousse?
    I'm having such a hungry day today but I have eaten what I normally would and don't want to eat extra on weigh in day... Also I'm in work (yep such a hard worker at the mo) so dont have any other food with me. I'll just have to ride it out until 5.30pm at least!

    Lost 2 at weigh in! Very happy with that. just 3 to go... And then the maintaining challenge! I had dinner as planned and had 1/2 syn worth of mayo and jelly. Was tempted to have a ripple just as my syns were so low but figure if I have a few low syn days it doesn't matter to much if I am at the top end at the weekend. Also had a Melba toast at sw so total for the day is 1 1/2. And want to stop rewarding myself with food. Kind of defeats the object I think!

    Hi Mandlegrot, thank you for your reply you are very close now as well...last 14lbs countdown!

    I do drink alot anyway so don't think I upped my intake much. probably an extra pint? I tend to drink 2x 750ml bottles of water in work and about 6 cups of tea(thats the next challenge- after quitting smoking - i drink faaar too much tea)and then at home I drink 3-5 pints of sugar free cordial.

    I didn't eat before I went but had my cereal and banana when I got back? Should I eat pre 'run'? and if so how far in advance and how much? - was up at 6am to go on the 7am run already - I need a few fags and mental motivation!

    All set for today - breakfast had 1 hifi light (1/2 HEB) and a banana. After yesterday's hungry day I thought I'd best stock up so I basically have 3 lunches with me...homemade soup again (leek and potato), 2 ryvitas and laughing cow triangles (1/2 HEA&B) and a mug shot. along with the obligatory Shape yoghurt and grapes. I felt so hungry yesterday I contemplated the dreaded vending machine. I will NOT let that happen again!
    J is out for tea tonight with work (a chinese boohoo) so I can choose what I would like to eat and now spoilt for choice.(nothing is quite as appealign to me as a Chinese) I either will have a tin of veggie curry(1syn) or macaroni cheese (3 syns) with a baked pot or chips and lots and lots of veg - got a sad looking courgette to eat and mountains of green beans and might get myself some spinach on the way home?

    Decided on the mac n cheese and a baked pot with spinach courgette and green beans. Was yum! Very full and decided to treat myself to some milk and a muller desert and made the milk a milkshake with some sugar free crusha... So that's 3syns for dinner, 1/2 syn for some mustard, 1/2 syn for crusha and 4 1/2 for desert. Milk is a second HEA as kinda turned into a green day! Feeling very indulgent with this and watching notting hill...perfect! So 8 1/2 syns today...quite high for me but won't need extra syns for weekend I've decided as I'm not going to drink.

    Scrap that I'm counting 10 today as I ate about 1/3 of desert and realised it was off (only 8 days out of date!) so have moved on to a choc one which is only 2 days out of date but tastes fine!

    Food wise today is a good day I had Quorn Sausage (2syns) and fried eggs and mushrooms for breakfast with 1/2 syn worth of ketchup. Then lunch Ive just tucked into (Im on a 12-8 today) a wholemeal roll (HEB) and ham egg 1/2 syn of mayo and spinach and a packet of skips - was a 21.5g bag so counted 5 1/2? and a Shape 0% yoghurt. Im having low low pasta tonight with mushrooms, asparagus and green beans(this is the last of them!) and I'll probably have a muller desert so 5 syns so again quite a high day with a total of 13.5. I dont really like going over 10 but I do feel like I've had a really naughty lunch....havent had a sandwich and crisps for probably about 2 years haha.

    In other non slimming world related things I'm not having much fun. I went to the shop to get my skips and some old biddy pushed infront of me in the queue. I mentioned to her that I was also queuing but she went on so I basically told her it was fine, but still she went on and on and on... Lack of basic manners really annoys me! Then I got back to work and my auditor had emailed me a query with regards to a case I had done. My job is VERY heavily regulated and if you fail 3 audits in a 6 month period then there are really serious consequences (money gets gone at least!). Basically she emailed me to clarify one detail before she gave me that big fat fail. I hadn't actually done anythign wrong and called her to explain (she had misread it!) but still it panicked me when I saw her email at first! So I am sitting here shaking like a leaf!

    Food for today so far planned: Breakfast Hifi light - not sure how many yet might go for 2 but try and stick to just one so its speed banana and tangerine
    Lunch - Baked potato, beans, and salad with balsamic dressing (1 syn?) with 40g reduced fat cheddar (my lunch is from works canteen but they only have full fat cheddar so I weighed my own and brought it in - crazy I know!) and a Shape 0%.
    Tea - Quorn peppered fillet with SW chips and mushrooms and possibly spinach. For desert I'll either have a choc mousse (3 1/2 syns) or a muller desert (5 syns as its the milk choc one)

    I get a nice early dart today as I am workign tomorrow (boo!!) but I only have to work 1 in 4 Saturdays and its only 4 hours - far cry from my retail days!!

    So food today... Breakfast I have bacon quorn sausage, poached eggs mushrooms and beans. And ketchup. So 3 syns. Lunch I had 3 ryvita and 3 laughing cow triangles (HEA and B) and I'm going to treat myself to a Chinese Singapore vermicelli I think. Nothing on syns on app or book but have googled and general consensus seems to be around 7. So plumping for that! Going round to my mums for a girly evening might take a choc mousse and a snack a jack and fruit just incase. Not drinking though as I'm driving.

    Ended up only eating about 1/3 of my vermicelli so counting 5. Had my choc mousse and snack a jack with my 4th laughing cow so total syns are 13 yesterday. Got a christening later so hoping I can make some good choices at the buffet. Not drinking though. Xx
