    So over being the big one....

    Well, after lurking for some time I have finally bitten the bullet and decided to join minis. I am also adding my diary, as I kind of feel its a right of passage!

    So a bit abt me. Never been skinny although I did have a brief interlude just before I got married and lost 3 stone ish (sw rocks ) For once I looked normal just the same as normal people. Normal is good when you have spent your life as the chubby one, Then after 8 years of marriage and a baby and a move to singapore I put it all back on again. Something I said I would never do.

    So here I am crawling back to sw. Have been doing for 7 weeks already and am a stone done. Another 2 to go and it's getting harder! There are no groups in sg, there are v few precious low syn brands here, and there are far too many opportunities to over eat and drink to much, but having lost a stone already means it can be done. Even if I have become a bit reclusive. I keep telling myself it's only for a while until I get back in control.

    Not sure if this will become a food blog/diary/syn log/general ramblings location but we will see....

    Right, let's get this show on the road and get these 2 stones off.

    Hi Cat

    Think it was a heady combo of the free flow brunches, hawker food and the evening g&ts (slimline tonic is impossible to get) that contributed to the problems but it's a fab place to be. If you ever need tourist info - I can offer my services. Been here 6 years now.

    Thanks for the welcome though. I think it would be nice to get some support so look forward to 'meeting' people here. You're doing well yourself. You will be tiny by the time you reach your goal. Go girl,

    As for the stone off, I can see the difference with clothes fitting but absolutely no one has commented! Admittedly it's not been a rapid 1 stone loss but more of a steady 1.5 - 2 pound route but c'mon!

    Well, today was a 100% sw day - had 2 syns with thai red curry for dinner. Made with lite philidelphia and skim milk. Turned out rather well I thought. And I did have a sip of beer (oh soo lovely and cold), so reckon that's a generous 2 syns and prob had another 1 maybe 2 syns in a piece of sushi that my dd made. How could I say no?

    Tomorrow is shaping up well too (have a packed breakfast/lunch/snack pack to take to work) and all looking good all week until Sunday..... And, well, the next week in thailand will likely be off plan somewhat! Think I will be stretching the syns a fair bit. Interestingly there is not much info around syns in thai food that u have seen. Any comments/links are welcome here.

    Good luck on the last stone - I will keep you company on the journey.

    I loved the pan pacific brunch we did Grand Prix weekend - check out my drink situation and dessert plate:

    I don't think anyone commented on my losses until I was 1.5st down. Now it's relentless and I know I should be happy but all the comments are starting to annoy me because all it makes me think was how big I was before! I know I'm being utterly ridiculous!!

    It won't take long before people really notice it on you :-)

    Never thought I would be admiring a brunch and commenting on how well anyone has prepared for finishing time by stacking drinks on this site. But you look like a brunch pro! Not a bad choice of location either.

    Sorry have been a bit MIA these last few days been rushing to get work sorted before taking a week off and daughters school hols have kept me busy. However it seems I have not lost any weight this week despite rushing around like a fool. Now what does a girl have to do to loose a pound these days?! Total victories all round off the scales, but it's really all about that number isn't it? And now you have told me I have another 1/2 to go before my first compliment I have been a bit more focused!!! Haha.

    Know what u mean about compliments tho I can imagine it's a bit distracting. Don't loose it on the next person to compliment you please! I had a weird thought in my mind the other day, I now fit into most clothes. Some tops are getting a bit Baggy but bottoms fitting (actually these are the mid range selection of clothes - I do have a smaller sized collection but they are a little old!) and I actually had a brief moment where I thought, I can't loose any more weight I will have nothing to wear. Now, honestly?! Is that rational?
