    Talking From 'Obese' to 'Overweight' to 'Healthy'! :)

    Hi all,

    So I started SW on 18.03.14 after a few too many years being unhappy with my weight and I have to say it has to be one of the easiest diets around!
    I never had the mental strength for Slimfast or Celebslim diets, I tried my hand at WW and did lose a stone, but that soon got boring and once again I fell off the wagon

    I heard so many success stories with SW that I decided to give it a go.
    I'm doing it from home because the classes just don't work for me. I have the Food Optimising book which a friend gave to me, as she has successfully reached and maintained her weight throughSW, and I swear I treat it like a bible!!

    I also joined Minimins which is great! I love reading different threads, the meal ideas and support is just amazing on here!

    So far I've lost 1 stone and half a pound which is fantastic and only makes me all the more eager to shed the rest and be slim and happy!
    I've another stone and 4.5 pounds to go, so here's hoping I can stick at it

    So I decided to write a diary, just to keep track of my every day eating, hopefully it will decrease the amount of overindulgences I tend to have!
    Good luck to you all with your goals!
    Good luck everyone!

    Congrats on the weight loss so far! I've heard loads of great things about SW, one of my friends has lost nearly 2 stone in 3 months. If I can't get my act together on my own I definitely think I'm going to give it a try. Your food sounds delicious - do you have a recipe for the risotto?

    BBQ day tomorrow so trying to keep syns within 15, might have to flexi syn though! Cakes will be involved

    Have 2 types of chicken kebabs, 500g of each:

    Lebanese style marinade:
    6 tbsp greek yogurt
    Lemon juice and zest
    1 tsp Paprika
    1 tsp Ginger powder
    2 tbsp apple cider
    2 tbsp ground white pepper
    1 tsp Thyme
    2 tbsp tomato paste
    4 cloves garlic
    0 syns

    Sweet and spicy marinade:
    25ml diet coke
    4 tbsp soy sauce
    4 tsps honey
    2 tsps grated ginger root
    2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
    1 tsp chilli powder
    1 jalapeño sliced
    2 tsps cider vinegar
    (4 syns for whole mixture)

    Got some burgers too which are 10% fat, 5 syns each, and some lean steaks with fat trimmed off.

    Also making some potato salad with red onion and EL mayo from.Aldi which is 11 cals per tbsp so 1 syn per tsp (I hope!)
    Egg mayo made with EL mayo and paprika
    Have a large mixed salad also, planning to eat lots of it!
    Also have some light Philadelphia with Garlic & Herbs (hexa) so will use that as a dip, and a 60g wm wrap (hexb).
    Gonna try steer clear of a burger bun but they're 6.5 syns if I cave!

    The hardest part is, I also made some Reese's Pieces cupcakes and some red velvet cupcakes which are about a million (slight exaggeration!) syns each! Not a huge cake lover anyways so maybe one of each

    Everyone is teetotal atm in preparation for summer so at least that temptation is not there

    Going to keep breakfast and lunch syn free..

    Breakfast will be fat free yog with banana and orange.

    Lunch will be a 2 egg omelette with a dash skim milk, bacon, onions, tomato and mushrooms.

    Preparation seems to be key in this situation! Here's hoping damage is minimum

    Enjoy the weekend

    Your weight loss is impressive. I am so glad you found minimins as doing it totally alone can be hard but the support here is wonderful.
    Mini Summer Target: To get to at least 15.7 by the 24th of September. This is 14lbs to go, at least 2lbs a week. WI dates: 12.08: 1lb lost 19.08 26.08 02.09 09.09 16.09 23.09

    “Veganism is not a "sacrifice." It is a joy.”

    My ultimate goal is to have a healthy relationship with food and to be strong and slender for the rest of my life, through compassionate eating and being in tune with my needs.

    So yesterday was bbq day.. so lucky I made SW friendly food, because there was wine in the end

    Bit of a blow out, hopefully no major damage.. back on it now for the next 2 days til WI :thumbup:

    I'm a bit confused over the flexi-synning, I read one place that you should build up syns for a blow out, and then read you should have your 'cheat day' and then just get back on it. I've done a little of both haha
