    Hi everyone,

    Never felt the need to do this before, because I always felt like I had endless time to get the last stone off and return back to target (which I was at last July).

    I'm going on an amazing trip in just 9 weeks, to a very hot country which I am unlikely to return to again. I desperately want to look good in the pictures I take!

    I lost 4lbs last week, this week it all seems to have stalled. I'm going to post my diary to see if anyone can offer me some advice about where I am going wrong, or areas for improvement.

    Green Day

    Breakfast: Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, 1 x 'Diet' 125g yoghurt (0 syns.)

    Snack: 2x Clementines

    Lunch: 250g Jacket potato, small tub of fat free cottage cheese, 1x plum

    Snack: 2 Weetabix (HeB), 250ml milk (HeA), banana

    Dinner: 90g Tagliatelle, 4 mushrooms, 5x Laughing cow lights (HeB) - Only ate half of this

    + 250ml milk (HeA)

    Syns:

    Have driven 200+ miles today, exhausted! Managed to go for a 5km run though, which I definitely needed after spending 4 hours cooped up in the car.
    Aiming for 3lbs this week - and trying not to look at the scales the entire week. Decided if I wanted that 3lbs, then I have to earn it, so found the motivation to go for a run even though I am tired.
    Today has been a success though :)
    Green Day

    Breakfast: Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, 125g pot diet yoghurt.
    Lunch: 60g Couscous, 1/2 tin tomatoes, yellow pepper, red pepper, onion. Clementine and an apple
    Snack: 2x Weetaxbix (HeB), 250ml SS milk (HeA)
    Dinner: Cheesy jacket potato with 28g Cheddar (HeB) and 5 x Laughing cow lights (HeA), baked beans, courgette, red pepper, mushrooms

    Syns:
    28g dark chocolate - 7 syns

    Another 5km run today. Was supposed to be racing, but I took it a bit too gently around the course and only realised how slowly with about 1km to go...was a nice day though and it is all exercise.

    Hoping to try out a couple of EE days this week - when I go to the shop and buy some meat. I feel like I am walking on such a tight-rope to get the weight off before I go away that I'm a bit skeptical incase it doesn't work as well as green... but we must take risks, it may work better, or a change being good for weightloss anyway.

    Green days are my favourite - even doing EE today I found I was completely stuck and missed my extra HEs. I've got some meat for next week, but would rather use a smaller amount for my HEb and then bulk it out. Praying for a good loss this week.

    I'm going to India :eek:

    Have only just realised that I should be posting this in the food diary section not the weight loss diary...oops.
    Yesterday was a write off, got taken out for sushi at lunch, and it wasn't as healthy as I thought it was.
