    THIS TIME I SHALL SUCCEED

    I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago, and still have the weight to lose that I was going to loose at 50, I've been 'on a diet' all that time, but I need to change! You name it, I've done it but obviously not properly, I must be an expert at deceiving myself or a sleepwalking eater. Anyhow, here I am, not new to SW but vowing to follow the plan properly at last. I have been lurking around reading other diaries, and thought by making my struggles public too I may just tip the balance the right way . Part of my problem is that I read something about some diet or other, and go bouncing off to try it then as soon as I have bought the book, cleared the kitchen cupboards of carbs etc, bought loads of food I don't particularly enjoy... I go on a bit of a binge to replace the feelings of deprivation! I love SW because it is simple, real food, nothing gimmicky. I work shifts so find meetings difficult to get to - an excuse I know - but I hope by being part of this community I can give and receive the support of a group in the comfort of home!
    Lets be an incredible shrinking community! I'm new to using forums too, so it's another learning curve to follow! Cx

    OK, today started well, scrambled egg for brekkies, and a HEB toast. But... I have a cold and sore throat, tinned soup for lunch, and some pork and mashed potato for tea, and cough medicine and honey, and honey.... I guess the little fat gremlins are out to test me already! Tomorrow I will go shopping for lots of free food. I should face up to the fact that today I was ruled by something other than SW! I am not going to let this derail me though; there will be a weight loss next week!

    Hi all, today I have more of a grip on myself, cold medicine can be my syns if I eat carefully; so brekkies was 2 eggs and HEXB bread, lunch a tomato & herb mug shot with cheese (HEXA) melted in and loads of black pepper - lovely and comforting! Dinner tonight will be more lean roast pork, mashed potato and carrots and broccoli. I've boiled some eggs to grab as snacks, and went to the shops and stocked up on pasta and stuff. I've been trying to 'low carb' for ages with little success - could be because the thought of doing without makes me want more, so to freely eat pasta and things seems so sinful, I guess there is a lot to get my head round about 'free food'! I probably should try harder with fruit and vegetables, but that will come. My challenging time will be when I am back at work (I do nights) and planning for the midnight munchies. Planning is the key though, isn't it? I hope everyone else is doing well today. x

    I need to get some of them mug shots! They'd be ideal to have as a quick lunch. Never had them before though, are they nice? Or just ok to fill a spot lol.

    They do fill a spot, and for my taste need a bit of something else - like cheese and pepper, but great as a filling free food which is quick n easy! You can add beaten egg to a made up one and cook off as a 'quiche', really filling comfort food, it just takes a little bit longer to make of course x

    Today I'm going green,
    Brekkies - Small slice of toast (1/2 HEXB) Scrape of butter (5 syn) 'Fried' Egg and tomato
    Lunch - Home-made leek n tattie soup, 1/2 a wholemeal pitta (the rest of the HEXB) free yoghurt and banana
    Dinner - Sort of one-pot bolognaise; quorn mince, pasta, tomato, onion, mushroom, peppers, loads of seasoning. 1/2 tube of primula light and 30g strong cheddar (2 HEXA)

    I really seem to be eating more than I did, I'll be scared of the scales on Sunday ! I love having frozen veg in, then I can make up more of these one-pot dishes with minimum effort.... (hmmm, what does that say about me)! Not exercising yet, because I still feel a bit weak & woolly from the virus, but I am not a great exerciser at the best of times, something else I need to work on....
    Have a good day anybody who reads this X

    'Synned' to the max today I think; scrambled egg & small slice of toast for breakfast, but then I was out for lunch so chose a healthy lentil/vegetable soup and had it with a warm herb scone and butter. A delicious way to use my syns, I enjoyed every guilt-free mouthful. Dinner tonight will be more of the quorn bolognaise thing I made yesterday, it's packed with veg, so I don't need to have a salad with it. Then I'll snack later on on boiled egg, ham banana and yoghurt if I need to. I hope everyone else is enjoying their day too

    Keeping things simple, I'm going to stick with eggs for breakfast, soup for lunch and a casserole type thing for dinner. That's all free food, then I can add in the healthy extras and syns later when I know what I feel like! At the moment this morning I don't feel like thinking . May the Chinese New Year be good to us all as we gallop around like lean race horses! x

    Last night went I went 'unconscious' and ate rather more than was good for me, or allowed . Ah well. Today is a new day and the sun is shining.
    Back to simple extra-easy meals. Toast and eggs for breakfast, veggie soup for lunch, turkey (frozen after Christmas!) potatoes onions carrots and celery in a casserole type thing for dinner, and save my 'A' food for a milky drink at bed time. I'm going to try and not have any syns today to help towards last night.
    I might get out and do some gardening - that'll be exercise enough!
    Have a good weekend

    Weigh-in this morning; Stayed The Same. I'm satisfied with that because I know I have been guesstimating syns this week and because of the cold I've been a total couch potato. Tonight I'm back to work so I'll be more active, and I'm going to use crispbread instead of bread, as I can have more pieces for a HEXB, so psychologically I will feel satisfied. I'm working 3 nights, I never sleep well so there are going to be more hours to eat in... a cue to work free food to the max. In my head it is simple; I know though from experience, that in the middle of the night if there is tasty food lurking in the staff fridge I would eat that rather than my selection . So! I have to make sure that what I take with me will satisfy me so I am not lured off plan.
    I am never bothered about breakfast though I eat it because we are told it is good for us. Experiment - delay breakfast until lunchtime. Go Extra-Easy....

    Lunch: bacon, egg, tomato mushroom.

    Dinner: Leftover turkey casserole from yesterday


    Supper (at work): Mugshot with added cheese (hexa) Free S/W quiche with lots of veg in the mix. Yoghurt, banana.
    Snacks (at work): 6 Finn Crisp(hexb) with 3 laughing moo extra light triangles (3 syn) ham and tomato.

    I should have taken just a bit more food to work last night; I had a choc biscuit about 5 this morning, when a free mugshot would have really done the trick (I forgot to pack the mug-shot!), also, I didn't enjoy the crispbread n cheese triangles, so that's a lesson learned - for the same value, 2 small slices of wholemeal, a processed cheese slice (plastic, but I love them!) lettuce and tomato would have given me a much more satisfying munch. So that is what I am packing up for tonight! I didn't sleep well today, courtesy of someone drilling a wall, so When I got up 'breakfast' was my usual 2 eggs and toast. So I can have another HEB tonight I'm making today a Red day; so dinner will be roast chicken, carrots, leeks and cauliflower. And at work I'll take a slice of S/W quiche, tomatoes and cottage cheese along with mug-shot and aforementioned cheese salad sandwich.

    Well done! Ok, so you didn't lose, but you didn't gain either - and in my book, that is worthy of a well done

    It is interesting reading how you are identifying what is working for you, what is not and how you are going to turn those things around. Very inspiring I am sure that will be your way forward to success too!
