    No Going Back

    Hi Guys and Dolls,

    So, this is my very first post on MiniMins! I have been an avid reader for as long as I've been both on a diet and had access to the internet which - lets not lie - is basically the whole of my adult life (anyone else feel like they've been on a none stop diet since the were 16?!) but I've never posted due to a mixture of nerves/confidence/laziness. Anyway, I'm fed up of feeling jealous of what my friends are wearing and wishing my boyfriend would turn out the lights when we get into the bedroom (TMI?!) so I've decided I finally need to do something about that. I've decided to follow the ProPoints plan as Weight Watchers is the only diet I have ever had any success with - the rest of them seem to enrage me more than motivate me - but since I have just bought a flat and can't really afford to go to classes I thought this might provide the extra support that I need.

    Anyway - today is my second day and so far so good. I haven't had an initial weigh in as there are no scales in this flat but I got on some dubious ones at work and I think I'm at the 12 stone mark again (Gahhh). I will have an official weigh in over the weekend but I decided not to use this as an excuse to put off starting the diet. As you can probably tell - I can waffle on a lot so this might become a kind of blog/food diary type of thing where I rant a lot. I would love people to read and really would appreciate the support - I haven't told anyone I am on a diet as my friends are now like 'Oh she's going to Weight Watchers again - same old story' - I'm sure lots of you can sympathise with that?!

    So I'll pop my food diary from yesterday on now - please feel free to follow / comment etc.

    Wednesday 16th January

    Daily ProPoints Allowance - 29pp
    Weekly ProPoints Allowance - 49pp
    Breakfast
    Melon & Grapes - 0pp
    Special K Chocolate & Raspberry Cereal Bar - 2pp

    Total - 2pp

    Lunch
    1 x Warburtons Thin - 3pp
    1 x 205g Tin Pasta Hoops - 3pp
    2 x Weight Watchers Cheese Slices - 2pp

    Total - 8pp

    Dinner
    McDonald's Cheesebrger - 8pp
    McDonald's Small Fries - 6pp

    Total - 14pp

    Snacks
    Weight Watchers Oat & Wheat Crackers - 2pp
    1 x Bottle of Carlsberg Export - 3pp

    Total - 5pp

    Water
    6 x Glasses

    Total Daily ProPoints Used - 29/29pp
    Total Weekly ProPoints Used - 0/49pp
    Weekly ProPoints Remaining - 49pp

    So the day didn't go off to a flying start with the McDonald's - one could say that fast food is my week spot, blame my mother and her love of salt - but I'm proud I only had two things and that I stayed within my points values. Usually I would have thought screw it I've ruined it,I might as well have a pack of digestives but I didn't so that's a step in the right direction!

    Anyway, that's enough from me please feel free to say hello and I will update again with todays diary in a min.

    Lots of Love

    This MiniMins malarkey is complicated - think I'm doing the right thing to post diary number two but we will see - with any luck it will end up in the Slimming World thread or something...

    Anyway - onto the good stuff. So far so good today - I have eaten tea and still feel hungry but fancy a glass of wine later so am hoping to save my weeklies for this purpose. Wine is definitely my weakness (along with McDonald's though you'll be happy to hear I resisted that particular urge today!).

    Thursday 17th January

    Daily ProPoints Allowance - 29pp
    Weekly ProPoints Allowance - 49pp

    Breakfast
    Melon & Grapes - 0pp
    Weight Watchers Oat & Wheat Crackers - 2pp
    Weight Watchers Low Fat Butter 10g - 1pp

    Total - 3pp

    Lunch
    1 x Warburton's Thin - 3pp
    Weight Watchers Tomato Soup - 2pp
    Weight Watchers Low Fat Butter 10g - 1pp

    Total - 6pp

    Dinner
    140g Cooked Lean Mince - 6pp
    Can of Tinned Tomatoes - 0pp
    Onion - 0pp
    Mushrooms - 0pp
    Pasta 80g Dried - 8pp

    Total - 14pp

    Snacks
    1 x packet of Quavers - 5pp
    EDIT: 2 x Glass of White Wine - 10pp

    Total - 15pp

    Water
    5 x Glasses

    Total Daily ProPoints Used - 29/29pp
    Total Weekly ProPoints Used - 9/49pp
    Total Weekly Pro Points Remaining - 40/49pp

    This may change later if I choose to have some wine / a night time treat but will update accordingly! EDIT: I decided to have a cheeky couple of glasses of wine! My points allowances are a bit shaky as I'm not attending a meeting so as they were bigger glasses I have allowed 10pp for this. On another note my boyfriend came round last night and ate the remainder of my spaghetti bolognaise in a toastie with melted cheese - I was practically green with envy especially because it was in the George Foreman!! But i restrained and ignored the bread/butter/melted cheese amazing smell!

    All in all, not too bad for day two

    So, day 3 it is. Today's been a little bit tough to be honest - really struggled with cravings and almost gave into the powers of a Double Decker at work but alas I stayed strong and kept my cool and didn't give in to its cruel nougaty temptation. I've just had my tea and feel nice and full so am hoping that keeps my hunger at bay for the rest of the evening. Also, it's Friday night which usually sees me on my couch with a bottle of wine in hand so we will see if that little temptress greets me later. Onto the food...

    Thank you ladies As I am new to this site I don't know how to subscribe but love reading everyone else's diaries for inspiration. Think the rest of this week is going to be pretty boring as absolutely zero cash until pay day on Friday! I know - what I would do for a Chinese right now! Me and my boyfriend has a late night urge for some prawn crackers and fried rice last night but I just went to bed instead - will power!! Think he would have liked the prawn crackers but he eats crap and still has a great body - oh to be like that!!

    Sammie Ann I have been reading your diary and love it!!

    Thank you for the know how SammieAnn Judging by the 87 I assume that's your year of birth?! If so we will be around the same age as I was born in 87

    So I went to my parents today and got weighed - 11st 13.5!! Not good considering I was down to about 11st 2 this time last year! Oh well, not point crying over spilt milk so I'm trying to use this positively to think that was the last time I will ever see that number on the scales! Because I usually nip to my parents on a weekend I am going to have Sat as my official weigh in day. I also browsed a newer ProPoints back to the one I have (my mum was a member a few months ago but decided to go it alone) and realised that the minimum pro points value has now changed to 26 :O so I have been doing that wrong! Because of this I'm going to start a fresh tomorrow with my 26pp a day and my whole weeklies again. Still going to track todays food though but will miss off the weeklies!

    Saturday 19th January


    Breakfast
    3 x Crumpets - 6pp
    10g Weight Watchers Butter - 1pp

    Total - 7pp

    Lunch
    1/4 Margharita Pizza - 5pp

    Total - 5pp

    Dinner
    Mums Home Made Chilli:
    140g Cooked Lean Mince - 6pp
    Chopped tomatoes, corriander, onion, chilli flavouring - 0pp
    Sweet Potato Wedges - 5pp
    1 x tablespoon Creme Freiche - 3pp

    Total - 14pp

    Daily ProPoints Allowance Used - 26pp

    So tomorrow I will be changing to 26pp and see how that goes! Hopefully I won't miss the extra three too much... Sure I will though!!

    That's all for now!

    Oh wow happy birthday for friday!! I'm a November baby so don't reach 26 till then - still feel like I'm 18 sometimes though and forget that I'm 5 years from 30 haha. Thanks - got up early this morning and made me and my boy a fry up his words to mine were 'Is that all your having?!' and I had to remind him again that I'm on a diet while he munched three sausages, four rashers of bacon, eggs, beans and white toast with Lurpack butter!! Mine was much more Weight Watchers friendly

    Yeah it was just as nice I really enjoyed it

    Yeah I am - I've always been a crazy, single party girl but since I met my boyfriend last year that's changed a bit and has made me really think about having kids and all that grown up stuff!

    Yeah the big snow disaster wasn't really so bad was it but very cold outside! I'm from Garforth but live near Rothwell now - how about you? You cooking anything nice?
