First attempt at Slimming World... First attempt at a Food diary!
Hello everybody and fellow slimming world friends
So I have recently started slimming world, in fact it will be my third day now. After a bit of exciting googling about syns and snack ideas I came across this site and there has been so much useful information on here that I thought I would give it a go myself
A bit about me, well I started gaining weight just before I went to uni due to medication and personal circumstances but hitting uni and the typical student life hard I really piled on the pounds. Overall in around a year and a half I have gained about 2.5-3 stone making me roughly 2 dress sizes heavier. I then decided to give herbalife a go. For those who don't know what this is, it's a very expensive diet which consists of replacing 2 meals a day with a shake based on high protein and low carbs. The third meal would also follow this pattern and snacks would be low fat low carb also. I did this for around 6 weeks and lost a stone, but I like food and having a 1200 cal allowance along with my gym routine I was constantly hungry and skint! (The full herbalife package per month costing around £125). Safe to say I stopped this diet and gained a stone and a bit more haha! :o
Well, I recently got fed up. Clothes not fitting etc so I walked to my local slimming world and joined up. Everyone was super friendly and I was so surprised at the variety and the amount of food you could eat :p I was so excited to start!
Now these past few days, I feel like I am eating too much to be on a diet. These foods have mostly been superfree/free which apparently are unlimited but yeah...
So I thought I would share my food diary with you and hopefully some of you lovely members can give me tips or share some yummy recipes haha.
