    Thumbs up Diary of a wannabe skinnie minnie

    Hi there,

    My name is Sarah and I'm new to all this...the diet, the site and blogging so bear with me!

    I have to lose about 6 stone as I simply can't bear to remain at my present weight. I cant look at myself in the mirror and dread people taking photos of me. I never used to be like this but have let things go over recent years (especially since having my little one). Now its time to stop with the excuses and get right on it!

    I'm doing SW as did it before I was pregnant and it worked well. I find it really useful to have so many free foods. I'm a veggie so on green days. Have been doing it since Thursday and so far I'm loving it. Have had a few treats (including a little alcohol, much less than usual at a weekend) and have stayed well within the syn limits. In fact I find that since ive been eating far more healthily im full for much longer and don't need to snack.

    I know that it is early days so im really hoping that i can maintain this in the long term.

    Would be great to meet some new friends on here and have that extra support. Im not going to a group as with the little one and a full time career I know I wouldn't make it often enough. So I would really appreciate any tips, help, encouragement or anything else!

    Hi Sarfrog,

    I also have just started back on the slimming world plan, it has changed loads since the red and green days....I'm on my 3rd day and so far not feeling deprived of anything, in fact quite the opposite really. I've just been out to do my shop and going to try a 'made from scratch chilli' tonight from a recipe found on here.

    I'll let you know how it goes

    Hi D Sorry for the delayed reply, ive had a hectic couple of days at work. Have been on the road a lot so was a bit worried about how things would go and whether I may give into temptation and get a service station sandwich! Thankfully I think it went ok and ill post my food diaries later on and my planning for tom as I think that reflection and planning is going to be the key for me. itstop me from cheating or getting desperate and grabbing anything!

    How are you getting on? How was your chilli?

    Sarah xx

    So here goes this was yesterday....not quite the plan that I had in time as
    1. I got up late and
    2. I was in my car driving around for most of the day.

    Was concerned about how this may pan out but I think it went ok. Don't think I ate anywhere near enough in the day as I had a banging headache and no energy when I got home. Guess that part of that is the change in my diet and the lack of previous fake highs I was getting from convenience food.

    Here goes!

    BREAKFAST

    Nothing other than a cup of black coffee.


    LUNCH

    4 dark rye ryvita and a scraping of dairylea (I mean an absolute tiny amount so I could taste it and save some of a HEX A). HEXB
    2 cooked beetroot (not pickled and cold) SFF
    3 raw mushrooms SFF


    DINNER

    Pasta with leeks, mushrooms, potatoes, onion cooked in a creamy sauce using quark, lowlow mature spread (rest of HEX A 1and 2nd HEX A), lazy garlic, a veg oxo, black pepper, herbs. Was yum yum and probably used less HEX A than it appears as there is enough for about 6 portions. So divided between them not bad and was very tasty!

    Cheese is a big issue for me but I seem to be coping with using the HEX As and now ive discovered Quark all in the world seems good again! Not counting any syns for today yesterday as all carefully weighed and accounted for. No sneaky jelly beans either!

    Will post todays in a moment xxxx

    So today here goes, think I have had another syn free day. I would quite like to save some this week as out on Saturday for drinks and Sunday lunch eeeekkkk ........ so any banked along the way this week will help. Recorded the others so have had about 14 in total this week.... and those are from sat and Sunday. Leaves about 45 syns so far working on 15 a day. Not going to over indulge at the weekend and think on sat I will have vodka, soda and lemon juice which are I believe 2.5 syns each for a small measure and have a glass of water in between each one to help my body flush it all out. Should help with the hangover as well! On Sunday I think a big plate of veg and no gravy will be ok.... as a veggie anyway this isn't too hard...providing they have a good selection I will be happy.

    Anyone have any other suggestions for dealing with drinking/meal eating? xxxx
