    My 2nd time round diary

    I everybody it's my 2nd time doing SW, doing from home this time. It worked really well for me last time but I lost my nana in May and emotional eating was my way of coping. I put the three stone I lost back on and more. So last Saturday I decided enough was enough, I planned my weeks meals & went shopping for it. Sunday was a fresh start & a new me. I weighed myself last Sunday & weighed at 18st10lb. After a cracking week I weighed myself this morning & I have lost 10lb. Really really pleased but know it won't be a loss that big every week. With me doing from home I need as much support as possible so I thought if I start a diary & post my daily menu you Loy could tell me if I'm doing wrong. So today's food is as follows.

    Red day
    He a- 375ml skimmed milk
    He a- 45g light cheese
    He b- brown bun 60g
    He b- brown bun 60g

    Breakfast
    Muller light, strawberries & banana (all free & no syns)

    Lunch
    2 x whole meal buns with fried egg, fried bacon (fat removed) fried mush, fried onions and fresh toms topped with 45g light cheese.
    (All fried in one cal spray

    Dinner
    Beef & mushrooms 4 1/2 syns
    Boiled rice
    Chocolate bar (kit Kat or twirl)

    Sunday is my treat day so my Chinese & chocolate is my naughty treat but well within my syns

    Look forward to your views & advice thanks Amy xx

    He b- whole meal pitta bread

    Breakfast
    Strawberries, melon & yoghurt (all free)

    Lunch
    Ham & potato salad (all free)

    Dinner
    Pitta bread pizza topped with mushrooms, onion, fresh tomato, ham & 25g of low fat cheese (3syns)
    SW chips & big side salad

    No other syns planned yet but might have a treat later on.

    Feeling a bit bloated today, have had 4 cups of hot water & fresh lemon to see if it works. Also quite refreshing as well. Ok so my dinner didn't turn out to be syn 3 as I had 3 syns worth of extra light mayo. So I have used 6 1/2 syns today. Not many I know.
    Made a big batch of veg soup today, can buy the bags of mixed veg already chopped up from my local green grocers, I just add leeks, spring onions & chicken stock cubes.
    Just wondered if anybody new if pickled red cabbage was free? Had a proper craving for it today but couldn't find the syn values.
    My tea was beautiful forgot how much nicer a pitta bread pizza was compared to a frozen one. Had a huge salad for my SF & also loads of SF on top of pizza & SW chips.

    Ok here goes, food diary for tomorrow

    Extra easy
    He a- 375 ml skimmed milk
    He b- 2 benefit hi if light bars (aldi)

    Breakfast
    Melon, grapes & yoghurt (all free and super free)

    Lunch
    My home made veg soup with Melba toast dipped in. (All super free & 3 syns)
    Hi if light bar

    Dinner
    Roast chicken with SW roast potatoes & lots & lots of veg. (All free & super free) 100ml of gravy which I think is 1 1/2 syns (I will check that though because I might be wrong)
    Hi if light bar & strawberries

    Today has been a really good day, only had 3 Melba toast with soup so just 1 1/2 syns there but had a packet of golden wonder chunky cheese's & they were 3 1/2 syns. Gravy with my tea 1 1/2 syns so 91 1/2 syns left for the week.
    Hot lemon did the trick & haven't felt bloated today at all. Made pancakes with chocolate sauce & sprinkles for my 2 girls tonight, didn't even lick my fingers, feel quite chugged with myself for this.
    I think this is the time that I actually feel like I'm ready to do this properly. I will lose weight.

    So tomorrow's menu

    GREEN DAY

    He a- 375ml skim milk
    He a - 45g light cheese
    He b - 2 Alpen light bars
    He b - 2 x brown bread

    Breakfast
    Melon grapes & yoghurts

    Lunch
    SW fry up, scrambled egg, bacon (fat removed) mush, beans, plum tomato & toast. 2 syns for butter.

    Alpen bar

    Dinner
    Pasta with 2 laughing cow extra light triangles, quark and cheese. 2 syns for triangles.
    Big salad
    Alpen bar & orange

    At work so needs to be summer I can make to take with me + I love this pasta it's beautiful.

    He a- 375ml skimmed milk
    He b- whole meal bun

    Breakfast
    Fruit & yoghurt

    Lunch
    Whole meal bun toasted with 2 ex light lauging cow triangles. Bacon (fat removed) fried egg, mushrooms, plum toms & beans.

    Dinner
    Beef & mush with noodles & boiled rice 4 1/2 syns I think???

    Good morning everybody, went shopping yesterday after planning meals for the week. Gutted though the leanest mince aldi do is less than 12 % fat. So going to have to count it as 2 1/2 syns. Good way of using my syns though as I have been struggling to use them.

    Ok so today is extra easy

    He a- 375ml skimmed milk
    He b- 2 slice whole meal bread

    Breakfast
    Apple, orange & yoghurt

    Lunch
    2 slice whole meal bread, toasted, topped with egg, mush & chopped toms.

    Dinner
    Beef & mush cannelloni with big salad.
    Will be using 6 syns on this meal because of the mince only being less than 12 % fat & I'm using 25g reduced fat cheddar 3 1/2 syns.

    Breakfast

    Ok so today's menu was different to what I 1st thought.

    Breakfast was fruit & yoghurt

    Lunch was a whole meal bun with an ex light laughing cow triangle & left over cannelloni from last night. My super free was in the cannelloni (chopped toms & mush)

    Dinner
    Forgot to put chicken in slow cooker so had pork chops, boiled potatoes, mushy peas, carrots & 100ml of mushroom gravy

    Syns today
    1 for ex light triangle
    3 1/2 for crisps this afternoon
    2 because my whole meal bun weighed 68g
    1 1/2 for gravy
    8 used all together today.
