    My "back on the wagon" diary

    A bit of back story. I've been overweight for as long as I can remember, certainly since early childhood. I'm an emotional eater, particularly when stressed. I can easily be very healthy all day and then binge on a whole pack of biscuits or big block of chocolate in an evening (sometimes both ) blowing a massive amount of calories.

    When I met my now husband just over 10 years ago, I was a size 26. I never weighed myself back then, but I know I was well over 300lbs - probably around 320. I slimmed down to a size 14 for our wedding, around 220lbs. Which still sounds a lot compared to others of a similar size, but I have a very solid build (and I gain/lose weight evenly all over, rather than being a particular shape) so I'm always a bit heavier than I look.

    Over the years, the weight slowly crept back on and I was back up to 270lbs and a size 18-20 before I realised it. So a couple of years ago I slimmed down again, this time to 210lbs making me a small size 14, sometimes even a 12 in some shops. But after a particularly stressful and lazy year, I find myself back up to 239lbs. My size 14s do still fit, but are getting too tight to be comfortable. I don't want to go out and buy 16s, so am doing something about it sooner rather than later.

    Both of the previous times I didn't follow any particular plan, just stuck to what I considered to be healthy food (essentially a low carb diet) and a lot of exercise. But this time I've decided to follow Slimming World. It's very similar to how I've eaten previously, but thought it would help to give some structure without feeling like I was "on a diet" as such. Am doing the plan online, since the groups near me don't meet at convenient times.

    So I thought a diary might help keep me on track, and making it a public one makes me more accountable. So here I am.

    Here is my EE meal plan for today...

    Breakfast:
    Danio passionfruit yoghurt (1.5)
    Banana and a big handful raspberries (SF)
    30g Special K granola (HEB)

    Lunch:
    Tees Valley chilli con carne (1.5)
    Mixed salad, no dressing (SF)

    I would normally have homemade free chilli but didn't have time to prep that, so went for a low syn packet.

    Dinner:
    Lean steak (free)
    Salt and pepper wedges (3)
    Mixed veggies (SF)
    Gravy made with 1tsp Bisto (1)

    Snacks:
    Punnet strawberries (SF)
    200ml Koko chocolate (HEA)

    Pudding:
    Mullerlight greek style toffee (0.5)

    So I'm at 7.5 syns for the day, leaving a bit of wiggle room for an extra treat if needed.

    Hi, will follow your diary I'm new to slimming world, joining next Monday! I'm an emotional eater too. Like you I can be good all day and come the evening I feel sad or stressed out and eat an entire family sized chocolate bar or pack of biscuits etc!

    Hi! Thanks for stopping in.

    Well, low syn dinner went out the window as DH wanted pizza. Only had half of a thin crust but still 20 syns later, plus 5 for a Muller choc pud instead of the toffee yoghurt...

    I think it will be OK if I count syns over the rest of the week and factor them in. So sticking to 10 syns per day should more than make up for it. Fingers crossed!
