    A new dawn, a new day, a new diary.

    I thought a new diary was in order, since my last diary was about me wanting to lose weight for my holiday (Losing for Cruising). Now that's been and gone I still have several stone to lose, so a new beginning felt more appropriate.

    A bit about me. I'm 28 and due to health problems I have next to no mobility some days and other days can manage a bit. I've gradually been putting more and more weight on but decided enough is enough. I'm definitely an emotional eater, if i'm stressed i'll eat, if i've been good i'll reward myself with chocolate, happy occasion = food. It's not a good mindset. I lost 2 stone a few years ago through calorie counting but it just wasn't for me because I could use my whole days calories on eating junk food, so SW seems to be a better approach and is changing the way I think about food. I'm sure in part my lack of mobility doesn't help but I can't keep blaming everything on that because I know I over eat and there are definitely a few health problems that i'm hoping will improve once I lose a few stone.

    Starting weight: 18 st 13.5 lbs
    Current weight: 15st 9 lbs
    Goal weight: 11st (ish)
    Starting size: 20/22ish (even found some 24's in my wardrobe, must have been in denial)
    Goal size: 12 (ish)

    Feel free to join in and have a chat with me. Tell me off if I'm being naughty or commiserate if you've been naughty too, everyone's welcome

    Since my last post on my old diary, a lot has happened. I spent the end of September and most of October going back and forth between hospitals in London to see my nan and aunt. This led to some very bad eating habits as we would only have take-aways and chippies to eat from by the time we left the hospital.

    My nan passed away toward the end of October and we had her funeral a few days later. I had a holiday two days after that and when I came back my aunt who was supposed to be home had become sicker. The day I got home I noticed my pet rabbit's health had rapidly deteriorated, he had to be put to sleep the next day which was absolutely devastating.

    Since then my depression has come back in full force and i've really been struggling to stay on plan. I can't keep up with uni work and I just sit in my room all day with the curtains closed staring at a wall.

    But last night I was sitting eating Doritos and thinking this isn't making me happier. So I might be feeling down but I'm definitely not out. I need a plan.

    1. I'm going to write a meal plan for the week.
    2. Plan my syns.
    3. Have some fruit with breakfast or lunch every day.
    4. Open my curtains and get out of bed (even if it means just going into a different room).
    5. Come back to using minimins (I always do better when I post regularly).

    So that's my plan and i'm sticking to it.

    Monday

    Breakfast/Lunch: 35g porridge oats (hexB) with 125ml ss milk (half hexA), 1 tbsp chocolate peanut butter (4 syns) and handful blueberries
    Dinner: stir-fry with quorn steak pieces, beansprouts, carrot, cabbage, mushrooms, onion and soy sauce with egg noodles
    Snacks: banana, apple, 35g houmous (hexB) with peppers, cucumber and tomatoes, fat free blackberry yogurt
    Drinks: 3.5 litres water with nas squash, 250ml sugar free 7up, 125ml ss milk (half hexA)
    Syns: 4 syns

    Pretty pleased that I managed to stay on plan today, I don't think I've had a fully on plan day in ages so it feels like a step in the right direction. Pity dinner plan has changed as now my lunch tomorrow has gone out of the window, I shall probably have some sort of eggs instead. And I'm definitely hungrier than the food I set aside for today, so I'll pick up some extra bits to snack on like quorn slices and cottage cheese and beans etc.

    Pretty good day today despite feeling poorly. Feel like I have my motivation back and WI went quite well considering only 3 days were on plan, I lost 1.5lbs. Asked for an SAS log so I can keep track of where I'm going wrong during the week which should hopefully help, determined to get my 3.5 st award next week, only 1lb away but I want a big loss next week!

    thanks for following honey_bee. Thanks Denise! I'm always looking for low syn snacks too, I'm always having the same old ones myself.

    Thanks for following kbqueen. Ooh that sounds really nice! Wish muller lights were veggie coz I love me some chocolate orange and I definitely can't buy a Terry's chocolate orange because I will demolish it

    Thanks Denise, and it's actually really easy, I hadn't filled one out before today either. It has 2 sections, a bit for all your aims for the day and a food diary. The aims section has how many syns you want to aim for and a lot of tick boxes so you can choose some goals for the day, like planning the days food or eating more speed food etc. Then there's a danger areas checklist with tick boxes for stuff that might make you overeat like shopping (guilty!) or petrol stations. The food diary bit also has tick boxes for if you've measured the quantity, how many syns and if it was free food etc etc. It's really handy seeing it all down on paper and a lot of people in group have said it helps them focus if they're going off track.

    Hmmm, well I was going to have chilli today but then I discovered we are out of rice. Trying to think up something vegetarian that my mum will also eat and is also super easy as I'm still feeling poorly. Might move forward Saturday's dinner and have a roast as it's got minimal work really. Also trying to have minimal syns until the weekend as I might be eating out Sunday and not sure where yet.

    Thursday

    Breakfast/lunch: half tin baked beans with x2 wholemeal toast from 400g (hexB) and an apple
    Dinner: baked potato, cottage cheese, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes and peppers
    Snacks: apple, banana, 17g mixed seeds (4-5 syns), alpen light bar (hexB), baked potato
    Drinks: 4.5 litres water with nas squash, 250ml ss milk (hexA)
    Syns: 4-5 syns

    Haha yeah, 3 litres is only a little bit for me! The other day I drank 6 litres, I've been a thirsty person since I was a kid though!
