    Hoping to become a slim bridesmaid! :)

    Hi all!

    I've just switched over from Slimming World. Really loved the plan but I've been feeling really sickly since starting it & I've been disheartened by some of my losses (it's very possible I'd get the same losses with WW given that I am quite inactive, but I just figured I'd give this a try for a few weeks so I'm not always wondering what if!). I also travel a lot at the moment & feel that WW would give me a bit more flexibility while I'm away. I have done WW in the past & loved it initially - however, I always seemed to get to a point where I started using my points on things like chocolate & crisps, and avoiding fruit as I didn't want to use up points on it! So I've decided to go back to WW for a while, while incorporating some of the SW guidelines into my diet (going to try & have 1/3 of my meals as fruit/veg & trying not to get into the habit of snacking on junk food instead of fruit) and then after a few weeks I should have a good idea whether WW or SW fits best into my lifestyle. Either way, I'm determined to get to target. I'm trying to get to target by March as I'm going to be a bridesmaid and I also have another family wedding next year too (& hopefully a graduation from college) that I really want to be slim for!

    I'm doing the discover plan - not propoints - and have an allowance of 18 points. As I'm a little bit rusty on some of the points, I'm open to criticism/pointers. So here goes....

    Wednesday 17th:

    Breakfast
    :
    2 oatibix with ricemilk & a banana (5)

    Lunch:
    Home-made leek & potato soup (mostly leek) (.5)
    3 rice-cakes with an extra-light cheese triangle (1.5)

    Dinner:
    Chicken breast in marinade with 2 potatoes & tonnes of veg (mashed carrot & turnip, broccoli, cauliflower & mushrooms) & a little gravy (6)

    Tea:
    Small bowl krispies (2)

    Snacks:

    Alpen light (1)
    2 mini meringues (.5)
    Baked walkers crisps (1.5) - was feeling unwell again in the eve so I needed a salt fix!

    Total: 18/18

    I haven't been feeling well this week & was very feeling very unwell yesterday, particularly yesterday eve, so I think I'm extra hungry today as a result.

    2 oatibix and rice milk (3.5)

    Lunch:

    Alpen light (1)
    1/2 can sugar free red bull (0..I think?) to keep me awake during a long distance early morning drive
    Options (.5) and alpen light (1) - I'm freezing so I needed something to warm me up!

    Total points: 18/18

    Haven't been the past 2 days as the b&b I was staying in didn't have wifi in the rooms (so annoying when they advertise that they have wifi!!). Have managed to stick within my points. This is my first time travelling since switching back to WW from SW and I have to say, I am finding it easier so far to manage eating on the go while on WW.

    Friday 19th:
    Breakfast:
    Porridge pot (2.5)

    Lunch:
    Wrap with ham, lettuce & corn (5.5)
    Packet of skips (1.5)
    Pepsi max

    Dinner:
    Smash with a cheese triangle mixed through (3)

    Snacks:

    Banana (1.5)
    Alpen light (1)
    Mixed fruit (1)

    Total points: 16/18

    Saturday 20th:
    Breakfast:
    Cornflakes (3) & toast with a scraping of butter (2.5)

    Lunch:
    Porridge pot (2.5)
    Low-calorie quicksoup (.5)

    Snacks:

    Mixed fruit (1)
    Banana (1.5)
    Alpen light (1)
    Low-cal quicksoup (.5)
    3 rice-cakes (1)

    Total points: 13.5/18
    (I was going to get a chinese (veg.chow mein) for dinner, but I was asleep for a while in the afternoon and wasn't that hungry)

    Not feeling good about WI this week. First totm since starting SW/WW and feeling heavy and bloated-definitely expecting a gain Wednesday..and I'm thinking maybe that explains my small loss last week, as I've read that some people put on/STS the week before.

    Anyway, feeling good otherwise. My last day away and then I get to go home tomorrow for nearly a week and eat normal food and sleep in my own bed!

    Monday 22nd:
    Breakfast:

    Porridge pot (2.5)

    Snacks:
    Banana (1.5)
    Low-cal quick soup (.5)
    2 slices tinned pineapple in own juice (.5)
    Drank the bloody pineapple juice without thinking so will have to add on for that (.5)

    Lunch:
    Brown bread sandwich with ham & lettuce, no butter/mayo (3.5)
    Crunchie (3.5) - decided to get a within-points treat today & I have to say, I enjoyed it sooooo much as I haven't had a proper bar in ages!

    Dinner/Tea:
    3 rice cakes (1)
    Banana (1.5)
    2 slices pineapple (.5)
    Didn't have a proper dinner as the only thing I could think of to get was a vegetable chow mein and really didn't feel like another one today - it also cost me €10 yesterday which I thought was very steep! I had a late afternoon nap too (I'm away & bored so I'd nothing better to do!) so I wasn't really hungry anyway.

    Total points: 15.5/18

    Thanks Holly! Although I did love SW, I'm definitely finding eating while away much easier this week because of WW. Hopefully I can keep it up & really hope I can start seeing a change soon - my belly is as big as ever & having a real 'feeling like I look like crap' day today.

    I've resisted a lot of temptation the past few days though where typically I would have stuffed my face (delis where I used to get wraps with sausages & melted cheese for lunch; filling stations where I used to get 2 bars of choc & 2 bags of crisps in one stop!; takeaways where I would have normally gotten chips, pizza, etc... for dinner) so I'm really proud of that! I'm actually staying in a b&b that I was in about 6 months ago when I was in full blown binge mode (it was a week before my exams). I remember the last time I was here, I went to the filling station and got coke, a large share packet of m&m's, share size packet of crisps, McDonalds, and tonnes of other crap. This time, the bin in my room is full of cupasoup wrappers, porridge pots & banana skins instead!

    I love coming across people with similar stats. Thanks for popping in! Looks like you're doing brill. Well done on your losses so far! Do you have a diary? Really hoping for a loss, but I won't be too disappointed this week if not given that it's totm & I'm not sure if/how that will affect my losses. Hopefully if I don't lose this week because of that, I'll have a bigger loss the week after!

    Just after having a crunchie with my lunch - was sooooo tasty & loved being able to have it without feeling guilty!

    Feeling really good about this week. I definitely feel like switching over to WW has helped me hugely in sticking to healthy eating while I'm away. I did absolutely nothing productive today though & had a completely unnecessary 2 hour nap in the afternoon as I was so bored. So now I really need to work on increasing my productivity & start doing some study & exercise while I'm away (I am doing a PhD at the moment so there are a zillion things that I could/should be doing!). I also really need to start introducing some more exercise into my life in general - because all I do is study & drive at the moment, and I don't do exercise, I have a lot of issues with muscle tightness & pains, so I really need to cop on & start getting more active! So those are my next 2 goals now that healthy eating seems to be going well!
