its never to late to start again x
that's my new motto, been here done this and gained it all back now its time to do it all again and hopefully keep it off this time.
my head space is better now,i have control of my anxiety and panic issues at least some of the time and feel ready to take my life back.
So new start, new rules and new attitude.
Rule no 1: no numbers, they hang me up. i become obsessed and if i am not happy with the no i lose the plot. I know my body, i know when i am doing this right. i am aiming for visible results not numerical results.
the rest i will make up as i go along
join me if you will, i promise bad spelling, rambling comments and details of my successes and failures.
Rule no 2: no classes, i panic too easily and find it difficult in social situations. my weight loss last time slowed down once i went to class.
not the fault of the class but of me, of my hang ups so support from here and other online groups.
Rule no 3: honesty, with my self and with this diary seeing things in writing allows me to accept them and move on
so day one officially x meals planned shopping delivered, how ever did i manage before shopping delivery, a trip to the super market nearly always resulted in overeating situation and bad choices, now i can plan, and shop for what i need only. much better control
brunch : scrambled egg, mushroom and tomatoes, 2 slices wm toast (400g loaf) (hex b)
afternoon tea: muller yog and mango chunks
dinner : home made burgers, paprika wedges, baked beans and mixed salad
i always struggle with hex a as i don't drink milk or use a lot of cheese , may use a small slice on the burger. At my age i should really take more note as calcium is so important. wondering if i should take a supplement .
no syns built in but will add them in as i use them
Think i am going to make a curry loaf this afternoon, some thing to pick on if needed.
hubby has decided to join me, so i have weighed him not hung up on his no's lol
Hey Mandy, welcome back, good to hear from you. All the best with your new start.
so got bored this afternoon and after my sister had said she was baking i decided to as well Slimming world style
i looked around some what and found some in date long forgotten scanbran cool, i thought scan bran cake but didn't have all the ingredients i used to use so on futher routing i came up with a plan and currently have a choc fudge cake in the oven. having seen one of the ingredients hubby is not sure but hey ho it's worth a try. results to follow x if it works its 11 syns for the whole cake

Hey I started back yesterday too!!!
welcome back to you too x
good luck x
so results now in the cake was not to bad not perfect needs some tweaks but edible
think next time i will exchange one of the scan bran for a weetabix and use some flavouring vanilla or nutmeg maybe the special ingredient made it quite light which was my plan
will share the recipe when i am happy with it x
I like the sound of your goals and I agree the numbers can really mess with your head so best not to get too obsessed with them. Your ultimate goal sounds fab and if your daughter is working on it too that should help both of you.

so day 2 still feeling positive still feeling motivated
meals today ,
breakfast: boiled egg and soldiers (hexb and hexa) mango
lunch : hummous 30% fat free small pot, carrot batons just need to sort out the syns on this ( useing the 20 cals = 1 syn, i am thinking 7.5 syns )
dinner: lean pork steak, roasted onion, tomatoes, mixed peppers, small baked potato
snacks : tassimo hot choc (2.5 syns) donut peach
off to the parents for tea, this is not always easy as my mother has a tendency to say things like, should you be eating that she is of the diet school of thought that says you can only lose weight by eating nothing. sadly some of my food issues come from my mum. Don't get me wrong i love her to death but this is an area that she just can't get her head around.
i have had to sort hubby out with his tea before i go otherwise he will either not eat or eat something daft typical man
well didn't have any lunch, wasn't really hungry and it has taken me decades to learn not to eat for the sake of it
i only cracked this this year and really don't won't to go back to eating for any other reason but hunger
planning to have 2 pink and whites later with my hot choc
total syns for the day 7.5 .
i am a little concerned that this might be to low but it does give me room to play with if necessary in a flexi synning sort of way
Yeay to 2nd day on plan and positive too.
A bit of cooking and planning going on today as i am working the weekend, 2 13 hour shifts coming up. going to put a chilli in the slow cooker and have made a rice salad for my lunch ( was making one for hubby for work today so thought i would get a head start )
need to work out sunday but think that might be slow cooked baked potatoes, not tried this before, with tuna and beans will sort out sundays lunch tomorrow night but am planning sandwich yog and a packet of pops ( just need to check syns)
for my first break i have got weetabix, greek yog and blueberries. all this planning so unlike me.
todays meals are a bit mixed up as hubby is working and need to have main meal before he went out but its all on plan
no breakfast, i very rarely eat breakfast can't face food when i first get up. i know i should be again not going to eat just for the sake of it
brunch : gammon, beans, mushrooms and hash browns ( 6 syns )
Tea : rice salad ( made so much it will do my tea as well ) basically it savoury rice with cucumber, tomatoes, onion and boiled egg seasoned with salt pepper and a dash of aromat,muller yog
snacks :donut peach, hoummous (4 syns) carrot batons 2 alpen light bars (hexb) 14 syns in total for the day
always a bit nervous when i eat all my syns, i have planned them today because i am on my own this evening and this is where i am likely to pick. also i haven't used many so far so it shouldn't do any harm.
just realised i have no hexa or b today so if need be i have them to use. could swap the pink and whites for alpen light bars or a bowl of weetabix. that would drop syns to 9
sure i think about food more when on sw then when not

Goodness me you do sound organised, can you pass some of it my way. Your weekend workload sounds tough I think it would kill me.
Hope you have a good day.
