    Diary of a Slimming 20 year old.

    Hello Mini Mins!!

    My name is Francesca and I am on a mission this year to sort myself out and get skinny. Eager to be slimmer for my 21st. Never really noticed how out of hand my weight had gotten until I saw a photograph someone had taken of me.

    Would be nice if someone wanted to join me on this slimming mission of mine? xx

    I am loving SW!! so much yummy food to eat and not even feel naughty about it, it's brilliant for me because I love pasta so it's nice being able to eat it and not feel bad about it. Did it briefly last year and did well on it but then put it all back on, boo hoo. So I'm back on it for 2014 and not messing about this time.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and congrats on your massive weight loss so far!! xx

    Aww thanks. I lost 4 stone between 2011 and 2012 but last year was on and off plan constantly never on it for more than a couple of weeks and it creeped back up until I'd put nearly a stone and half back on! Determined to finally reach target this year.

    Good luck this week, when's your weigh in? Are you attending a group or doing it at home?

    You can do it!! it's so easy to creep back on, such a slippery slope. I'm just doing it at home, you can find everything you need to know online and minimins in particular so I don't see why not. I bought some of the books off ebay last year so I've got those as well. Do you do the same?? xx

    Yeah I've never been to a group as I don't think I would stay to Image Therapy as that sort of thing kind of makes me cringe lol so I refuse to pay to get weighed. I've had relatives/friends go to group before so I borrowed books from them when I first started and rely on Minimins and Google for the rest. Now I pretty much know the plan inside out, I just google the odd syn values. I go to Boots on a Sunday morning to get weighed as I don't trust my scales at home. They give me a different reading every time I step on them even if it's only 5 minutes later! Do you do red/green/ee?

    Yeah haha, a lot of my work colleagues go to group and all I've heard about the image part and it's so cringeworthy. Anything you need to know you can google. I'm doing ee at the moment because it seemed the easiest to follow alone, and it's been working nicely so far but if it slows down I think I'll look into down the red or green days. What do you do?? xx

    I do a mixture of all 3 depending on what I've got planned for that day. EE most often just because I find it easiest to think of meals that both me and OH will enjoy. I do love red and green though as it means extra healthy extras which are my favourite parts haha!

    Syns are there to be used. Think the rule of thumb is that you should be using AT LEAST 5 each day. I did found on SW my first time round that I lost more weight on weeks where I used close to all my syns than weeks where I limited them... maybe just coincidence but I never worry about using them. In fact, I could NOT go a day without using them. I love to save them for an evening treat!

    Yes, you are supposed to use the Syns to stop your metabolism going into starvation mode and throttling your weight loss. I couldn't manage without my biscuit and cuppa before bedtime and save 5 syns for that
    And oh my lord, I HATE image therapy.... I'm doing this online, and the image therapy mails get deleted unread! Actually, watching Biggest Loser videos on Youtube motivates me more than anything else, oddly enough. Good luck with your weight loss journey <3
    Lost 56 lbs, put 28 lbs back on, now resuming my weight loss journey

    January 2014: - 6 lbs
