My fellow slimming buddies.

Today, is day two since fully pledgeing to be back on track.

So far, i have eaten

1 cherry mullerlight, 1 alpen lights HEB and an apple.

1 plum

2 homemade scotch eggs 1 syn for the two eggs used, i used 20g wholemeal bread turned into breadcrums? (syns anyone?) with mixed leaf salad, toms, red onion and red pepper.. followed by a hartleys jelly 0.5 syn.

iv had an orange and i have spag bowl with cheese lined up for tea. Mmm.

how about you guys? x

In spirit our new union of slimming buddies thread.. i figured we could do a 'this week i plegde to' weekly goal. I dont want this to be weight loss related, im not asking you to set yourself a goal of a loss.. it can be slimming related, or anything else you like. Somthing for you.

Mine for this week is:

I pledge to make my lunchs the night before work all week, instead of being lazy and using it as an excuse to eat what i want and spend money pointlessly.

oh god shrimpy, i could have sworn i wrote your name. Shall edit now *mwah* forgive me??

mmm i wish i had the guts to eat snack a jacks, i just cant be trusted to have things like that in my house. I wish i had the self control to have a trest box, so that i could actually use more than 5 syns. But i would eat the entire box and just binge.. its not worth the risk!

pinapple is my fave these days, i hated it before.. bad expierances with hard, and watery pieces before.. then i bought a fresh one myself and omg, i love them.. however, it actually slows down my losses o_O so i feel naughty when i eat it even though its free, so its like a treat. HA, my mind is mush isnt it!

Shelly_ i genuinly find that LOADS of carbs, as in sw chips etc keeps me going thru * week.. BUT i find that if i eat 3-4 bowls of mixed fruit salad throughout the day with tonnes of water, i can still lose on *week and actually, if the fruit is really COLD, and has been chilled for a few hours, it intensifies it for me and the sweetness staves off my cravings for real sugary things. Hope this helps.. xxxxx

Hello Buddies.

I feel so fat today !! - have been good though.

I suppose it's because I wore my new thin jeans - size 16 rigid skinny jeans (they're not skin-tight skinny jeans) - I just like slim leg jeans and I am 54 years old - so not REALLY able to wear skinny jeans anyway.

Anyway, I sidetrack.................so I wore them and feel fat because they fit close - IYKWIM ................. I have been wearing all my baggy stuff. MY daughter said - MOM you cannot wear that old baggy stuff no more.

But I feel slimmer in my baggy stuff.

MY customer this afternoon though as I arrived and haven't seen her for 6 weeks or so said 'WOWSEE, how much you lost, you look skinny' - she is now my friend for life.

HOWS you all doin?

Keep at it. Will keep noseying in this thread to keep up with you all.

Re personal pledge - I am already working towards 21lb's off for the Christmas Challenge - I am 6.5lb's into that - I think which means that I have 14.5lb's to lose for CHRISTMAS DAY ! See my siggie.

So that's my pledge to lose that 14.5lb's for Christmas Day. Christmas is a bit too close for comfort now.

Catch up later gotta take DD to work and then do a bit of shopping - need some new walking shoes for doggie walking and to and fro work each day.

I couldn't find the chick pea dahl in Morrisons - so may check out Asda today to see IF I like it. My cousin said that if you mix it with cooked onions and put onto frylight baking sheet in dollops they come out like onion bhajis? Anyone tried this?

any room for another little one? I would love to join a 'team' :)
