    Emily's Journey to a Jawline - including food pics!

    It's physically painful to think about how many of these diaries I have started over the last two years, but I'm praying with all my heart that this will be the last one. On the positive, I've actually joined a Slimming World class! I feel really good about it, it's a really lovely group and I was a bit embarrassed about going back, but the consultant was really encouraging.

    Anywho, I want to lose about 5 stone, any more than that is a bonus but for now, I'm focusing on the big 5! I've broken it down into a stone at a time, and I'm going to reward myself with a new tattoo for each stone I lost. Super excited.

    I think writing this all down will really help and keep me focused, and also remind myself why I am doing this and where I want to be. Here are my top 5 reasons for wanting to lose the chub:


    1. I want a face! And I mean a nicely shaped face, with a nice jawline. I've seen an amazing amount of before and afters lately, so I'm sure it's possible!
    2. I want to be confident within myself, personally, socially and in the workplace. T'would be nice to not have to worry about my weight everytime my friends ask me out to do something!
    3. I want a healthy body ready to start thinking about babies. I have PCOS, and I think it's going to be super difficult for us to have a tiny person, losing weight should hopefully help that.
    4. Clothes! Pretty clothes, in pretty stores where I don't have to worry whether or not they do my size.
    5. To make my husband (and myself) proud. I know he loves me no matter what size I am, but he's so supportive and he always puts so much faith in me. It'd be nice to actually say 'look, I did it!'.


    I'll be getting weighed on Fridays, can't wait til my first one!

    Day 2 - Extra Easy
    Thai sweet chilli chicken salad (3 syns)
    Chicken and vegetable soup
    Rice, green beans, onions, sticky asian chicken and grated carrot with a sweet chilli dressing (4 syns)
    2 x Hifi bars (HEX)
    Banana
    Glass of milk (HEX)

    Total syns: 7

    And here's some photos! Food porn, gotta love it!

    Thank you muchly! Just had a bit of a stalker sesh and read your blog and food diary, you have such a good figure! You've done crazy well so far, it's also rather awesome seeing what other people look like who are the same height (not forgetting the half an inch). I'm now feeling very inspired and slightly over excited at the prospect of looking that good when I hit 9st7lbs. I even used the word 'when' instead of 'if'. It's a new year miracle!

    Good luck with SW, not long til your birthday! Woohoo! x

    Wowwy Emily- you're enthusiasm is contagious! I've been having a post-Christmas self-loath. Spose that's one good thing about going back to work tomorrow- regaining some sort of routine/ restraint on FOOD.

    Here's to more New Year miracles for all of us xxxxx

    Thanks Katie, hopefully this is the last time we'll be this weight onwards and downwards!

    I'm surprisingly looking forward to going back to work tomorrow, got a little lunch box sorted and everything. New year miracles all round! x

    Haha, I do! I started it last year but I ended up moving house and lost access to my PC, so I stopped doing it. I got a laptop for Christmas though, so I'm planning on getting it back up and running! That's so funny, I'd almost forgotten about it. Weird (but pretty cool) to think people actually read it!

    Thanks also to everyone for the epic support on here. It's really motivational!

    Here's the recipe for thai chicken salad: Thai sweet chilli chicken salad. | Slimming world recipes and other ramblings.

    The sticky chicken was a bit of a 'trial and error' combo of sweet chilli sauce, honey, diet coke, garlic, ginger, spring onions, fresh chilli and five spice. The syns for the sweet chilli sauce are 1.5 syns per tablespoon, and the honey was 1 syn per teaspoon, but between four people it's nada. I also made the sweet chilli dressing (tbsp sweet chilli sauce mixed with a tbs of light soy sauce) and drizzled that on top. Bit addicted to it! I've got it for lunch with some plain chicken and salad today.

    Day 3: Extra easy

    Banana
    Activia 0% peach yogurt
    Hifi bars (HEX)
    Chicken salad with chilli dressing (1.5 syns)
    Mugshot (free - woohoo!)
    Mexican honey and chilli chicken with jacket potato, cheese and salad (HEX + 4 syns for honey and a teeny bit of bbq sauce)

    Total synnage: 4.5

    Hope you're all having a good Monday.

    Thanks! Got it for Christmas, as cute as it is, I have today learned that it is not water tight. As did the seat in my friends car, had a bit of a rogue soy sauce fiasco!

    Very lame excuse for a photo of my dinner tonight, my dslr battery is dead and I couldn't wait. Was crazy nice though, I couldn't eat it all too which is awesome. I actually left food on a plate, self high five!
