    Onwards and Downwards to a healthier me

    Well here I go. Time to stop messing around and actually get foccussed on losing weight once and for all.

    A bit of background. I am 46 years old with 2 children and a DH. I have been 'dieting' since I was about 20 and have at various points in my life been very slim (size 8) to my current (size 18). I feel unhealthy and lethargic most of the time, and despite 'following' the SW plan since March I really have lost nothing. when I say 'following' I know that this is not true and had I been sticking to plan I would have probably lost loads by now.

    Anyway a fresh start and getting my head into the zone. I want to lose 5 stone which would bring me in at just under 10stone. Given my height and age this is a weight I would feel comfortable at.

    My DH is very supportive and has actually being doing better than me by eating the same dinners as me, it's just all the other meals and snacks that I eat that are not making me do as well.

    so huge line drawn and plan has been done for the rest of this week. I weigh in on a Friday morning so I would be grateful to lose at least 1lb this week by having 4 days on plan.

    Menu for tomorrow is EE:

    breakfast: banana, ryvita (HEb) with Philadelphia lightest (HeA) and tomato, DG coffee (2.5 syns)

    lunch: SW quiche with ham, mushrooms and peppers, ML yoghurt and satsuma

    dinner: sticky sesame beef (3 syns) with rice and stir fry veg

    snack: snack a jacks (5 syns) and carrot sticks

    syns: 10.5
    Goals
    1st goal lose 7lb (14st 6.5lb)
    2nd goal 14st
    3rd goal - lose 1 stone (13st 13.5lb)

    Hi, good luck
    SW does work if you stick to it
    Are you going to group or doing it from home?

    Thanks Denise. I lost weight before with SW after my first son was born and then life got in the way. I think getting my head around EE is taking a while but I need to stop taking liberties and do it 100%. I do SW from home with just support from here. I did initially sign on online but spent 90 for 3 months memberships and did not lose anything so decided to do it on my own for now and then once I get into the swing of it I may join a group in the New Year.

    Didn't get a chance to post yesterday but my menu ended up more like this

    Breakfast: omlette with mushrooms and tomatoes DG coffee (2.5 syns)
    snack snak a jacks (5 syns), satsuma
    lunch: 3 x ryvita (HeB), Philly (HEa), carrot batons, ml yoghurt
    dinner: steak, mushrooms, onions in pepper sauce (3 syns) with SW chips

    syns 10.5

    today's plan is

    breakfast: toast (HEb) and peanut butter (5 syns), DG coffee (2.5 syns)
    snack: satuma and alpen light (3 syns)
    lunch: sw quiche with bacon, peppers and onions, Ml yoghurt
    dinner: sw chicken curry with rice and veg
    supper: forest fruits and natural yoghurt

    syns should be about 10.5

    Food looks good!
    I lost weight with SW too years ago and that was doing the red/green days
    Took me a while to get this extra easy too
    But now I find it really good , only difference seems you only get 1 of each healthy extras
    And what was free before on red/green are both free on EE
    Bit more versatile I think
    It's only occasional I turn to a green day should I want another HE of each

    Well today was pretty on plan no deviations

    breakfast: toast (HEb) and peanut butter (5 syns), DG coffee (2.5 syns)
    snack: satuma and alpen light (3 syns)
    lunch: sw quiche with bacon, peppers and onions, Ml yoghurt
    dinner: sw chicken curry with rice and veg

    not sure I can manage the fruit and yoghurt so shall leave that I think

    syns: 10.5

    Tomorrow the plan is for:

    Breakfast: DG coffee (2.5 syns), 3 x ryvita (HEb), Philly (HEa) and ham and tomatoes
    snack: satsuma, snack a jacks (5 syns)
    lunch: second half of quiche, ML yoghurt, carrots sticks
    dinner: quorn peppered steak, baked potato and veg
    supper: fruit and nat yoghurt

    syns around 8.5 - oh quite low may have something extra with tea e.g some cheese on my BP but I will see.

    Have also started doing some jobs around the house in the evening as I normally get home, unpack my bags and the boys school bags, sort homework etc, do dinner and then after dinner sit down for the evening. But this week I have been doing stuff after tea and therefore sitting down later which is good and it is keeping me moving longer.

    I have also been trying to drink more water at home in the evening as even though I do quite well with fluids during the day I am bad for not drinking anything after tea. Probably be up half the night weeing lol.

    snack; satsuma and snack a jacks (5 syns)

    Thanks NewMe14.

    I lost 2lbs this morning so I am delighted. I would have been happy to sts as I had a really bad weekend before I got my head back into gear. So a good week is planned for this week although I am having a chinese on either Saturday or Sunday as my brother and his family are visiting from England and we are all going out for a chinese.

    Plan for today is:

    breakfast: omlette with mushrooms and peppers, banana
    snack: 2 x alpen lights (HEb) and satsuma
    Lunch: tukey and bacon salad, snack a jacks (5 syns) and ML youghurt
    dinner: cold meat, camambert and crips with dip (my off plan weigh in night).

    No wine tonight (normally have a few glasses on a Friday and Saturday night) as I am trying to give up my wine until xmas just to help boost the loss. Not having a HeA so can use that for some of the syns that will be in the camabert.

    I have doone my menu plan for this week and off to do the shopping in a moment. Looking forward for my chinese tonight but not sure what I will have. Probably noodles with something. I love Special fried Rice but I made the fakeaway book one and loved it so much I don't think I would get a takeaway one again. I will probably go for chicken and cashew nuts with noodles as that is one of my favourites. Anyway better get a move on as I need to get the shopping, get DS2 haircut and sort lunch before we go out.

    Well had an okay day today foodwise and will have a glass or two of wine tonight but I am pretty shattered as I was awake quite a lot last night so I may end up with just the one. Ended up with DH and I sharing a cantonese chicken and a chicken curry with noodles. Probably not the healthiest option but it was very tasty and I couldn't manage it all so that was another bonus.

    I was having a think today. I was getting ready to go out and I was looking at my toiletries ( I have a three drawer storage unit in my cupboard which has my toiletries, skin care and nail varnish stuff in it) and was thinking oh I won't use that it is too good for a couple of my nice toiletrie sets. Then I thought what is it too nice for as I am going out to see family I haven't seen for a while. It then struck me that what I meant was 'it is too nice for me'. Now I do wear make up and I get the roots of my hair done but in terms of 'pampering' myself that is about it. I have loads of nice nail varnishes, toiletries etc and yet I don't use them. So I have decided that I will use these because I am worth it.

    I maybe need to have a look into reading a book or two about self esteem and self worth as I think these are two areas that I need to change in my personality.

    Thanks Denise

    Well last night I used the No7 Glycolic peel which I have had for donkeys but never opened (actually have checked online and they don't even make it anymore ). It was good and I will definately be doing it on a regular basis. I also opened up a new night time moisturiser and have put it by my bedside to make sure I use it everynight. I'm fine at moisturising in the morning before I put my makeup on but not good at night.

    so far a good food day today

    breakfast: omlette with mushrooms and tomatoes
    snack: satsuma
    lunch: ryvita and philly with ham, ML yoghurt and grapes
    dinner: chicken and stir fry veg with mushy pea curry and rice

    syns quite low today as I have not had anything with syns in it so far but may have some snack a jacks later if I fancy something to eat. Feel I have now paid of syns I had in my chinese on Saturday so will go back to my normal 15 a day from tomorrow.
