    MrsP's weight loss diary

    Hello weight loss diary!
    So a bit about me. 40 something, 3 children, work full time in IT.
    Love slimming world, previously at target after losing 5 stone, but after a horrendous year (deaths, parent with cancer, changing jobs), I got fatter again.
    Went back to group last week and had an amazing loss of 7lbs.
    Feeling motivated now! But a bit worried that next week could be a disaster.

    Food for the day...I'm dabbling with SP as previously was a red girl.

    Breakfast: hifi bar in group. B
    Brunch: homemade sausages (extra lean pork mince), bacon medallions, eggs, mushrooms, grilled tomato and a spoon full of beans. 1 syn for ketchup.
    Tea: Steak, salad and mushrooms cooked with onions, garlic and HEA portion of Philly lightest

    Having walked 4900 steps already I plan on doing another long walk now!

    Another B choice needed so may have 2 ryvita later topped with cottage cheese.

    No more Syns planned today.

    Back tomorrow!

    Morning Diary.
    Well, had an awful sleep for some unknown reason. Still in bed with hubby snoring next to me :-).
    Off to our niece's christening today. There will be a buffet after so I cooked an extra piece of steak last night and am going to try and make an egg wrap shortly so that I can take my own food (something that I would normally do as I have a dislike of beige party food).

    EESP day
    B: ham and egg cups
    L: (providing it works!) Egg wrap with sliced steak and salad
    T: trying southern fried turkey bites (heB - nimble wholeness) with coleslaw (own version using extra light mayo)

    HeA: low fat cheddar (split between wrap and coleslaw)
    HeB: 2 slices of nimble
    Syns: 1.5 on 3 tbsp mayo

    Exercise: dog walk this morning
    1 hour cardio in the gym this evening

    Will also be batch cooking egg and ham cups for breakfasts this week as well as a cottage pie topped with swede, carrot and turnip mash.

    See you tomorrow evening (never have the time on a work day!).

    Hi MrsP
    Well done on starting things up again. Like you I'm in my 40s, married with 2 kids and work full time (term time) and I empathise with the frustration at putting weight back on that was previously lost... Although having such a devastating year is a better reason to take your eye off things than mine. 8 years ago I lost 6st and was probably 10lbs from target, I got stuck and fed up with going to group each week and fooled myself into thinking I could do it on my own (big mistake, the weIghtfield crept back on with interest) and although I respect those who do that, I have now come to the conclusion that I personally can't. July 2013 I restarted at group at over 18st, so far I've lost nearly 7st in 18mths (although had a gain at xmas, I'm back on track again) and I've come to realise it's weighing in at group and being honest and getting support on here that is helping me - mainly to recognise that I need to be on or near plan for the rest of my life (because it's a healthy way to eat!)

    So if ok with you, I will follow your diary with interest and hope to get inspiration and help from it, and to give it in return :-D

    Good luck for the christening today (and dodging the beige food!)

    Jo

    Hi Jo,
    Thanks for such a lovely post. You've done so brilliantly! Seems that we've both come to the same conclusions!

    Well I've had such a busy week. Work, gym (just started a 6 week personal training group, twice weekly plus an additional class...ouch) and my daughter's birthday).

    I'm now making the resolution to post on here daily!

    Apart from a very small slice of cake yesterday, I've been pretty good :-).

    Plan for the day:
    Breakfast: boiled egg
    Lunch: homemade asparagus, courgette and chicken soup (with mint and lemon). Simmering at the moment and smells divine!
    Walk at the shore later!
    Tea: diet coke chicken with roasted veg and butternut squash.

    A good sp day! Going to have ryvita with cottage cheese later, and HEA will be spent on skimmed milk.

    I'm aiming to go to the gym this morning for a 45 min cardio session.

    I missed group yesterday as it is 9am...just the time that my daughter was opening her presents. Really missed the weekly inspiration injection :-(. Thinking of finding another group for Monday evenings, especially as hubby and I are going away in 2 weeks for a weekend on our own. Now I'm back I really want to commit to group.

    Back soon! x

    Hi
    I'm really impressed with your commitment to exercise.. Could you send some my way please? (last summer/autumn I started to take up running but I'm too easily put off by the weather
    .but really must pick it back up in the next few weeks). Sounds like you're getting yourself organised (that's when I find I do well, when I've pre-planned, cooked etc). I've just made a tray of 'brownies' which works out at half a syn for a small but reasonable slice/chunk. Really pleased with them so may have some for pud tonight. Also made tomorrow night's tea already (Mondays are hectic for me)..feeling virtuous (smug!!).
    Here's to a good week for both of us. Let me know how you're doing x

    Hi Jo,
    I do love exercise when I'm in the swing of it :-). I find the group sessions really good for keeping me motivated and focused, plus it's nice to meet other people (and it is very funny when someone is swearing at our trainer!).
    The brownies sound great! Can you post the recipe?
    Well, I'm feeling a bit hot and cold today as well as dizzy. Hoping that I'm not catching the Lurgy that everyone else seems to have had :-(.
    Walked from the station to work (4975 steps = about 2 miles) and then the return journey later. Was going to the gym tonight but if I'm still like this later then it's a date with the sofa!

    B: 2 x ryvita with cottage cheese
    L: asparagus soup
    T: left over diet coke chicken :-).

    Not that adventurous today but I do fancy lemon meringue. Was going to make the sun free version last night, but laziness overcame me!

    Did you manage to get organised? What day do you usually weigh?

    Hi Shellie

    Keep up the inspiring exercise (hopefully if you keep mentioning it on here, it'll shame me into digging my trainers out of the wardrobe!)

    One little comment on your food diary - you don't seem to eat that much (?) I know I couldn't survive on so little - I'm too greedy and would be likely to be trying to put cottage cheese onto my shoes by 11am if I only had eaten a couple of ryvitas!!! I would say if you cut back too much too early, you won't leave yourself any flexibility as you get closer to target - but, of course, up to you X

    As for the brownies recipe:

    1. Mix 50g of unsweetened cocoa (eg bourneville) (8 syns) with 6 egg yolks and 30g of granulated sweetner.
    2. In a separate bowl, whisk up the egg whites ('til they're stiff).
    3. Mix half of the egg whites into the chocolatey goo (which should 'loosen' the mixture)
    4. Then carefully fold in the remaining egg whites into the choc goo (trying to keep as much air in the mix as poss)
    5. Pour your mix into a lined baking tray/shallow silicone cake mould
    6. Optional: chop up into little pieces a couple of flumps or similar amount of marshmallows (2syns) and sprinkle over the top of your mix
    7. Bake for approx 20 mins in a 180 degree oven

    Should be able to cut this up into 20 generous bites, of half a syn each.

    These were a big hit in our house , although next time I'm going to use 7 eggs not 6, as our eggs tend to be a bit on the small side (I keep chickens for fresh eggs in our garden - although I have to say that they are more like pampered pets!)

    My weigh-in day is Wednesday evenings (so only another couple of days for me!) - how about you?

    Jo x
