    Has anyone else done this?
    I am at a wedding next Friday and the OH mentioned a couple of things he missed food wise the other day. So we are having a planned day off plan for the wedding! I am quite excited!

    We will be having;

    Brekkie: Sausage Sandwiches (made with full fat sausages, butter and white bread)

    Lunch: Cold Cuts with mini pork pies, scotch eggs, butter & white bread

    Dinner: Whatever we are served at the wedding

    What do you miss about pre SW food?

    P.S. Supposed to be a bit of fun so I politely request that anyone who does not agree with a planned day off plan remembers it is not supposed to be taken too seriously :)

    I miss pizza, sweet and sour chicken balls, HUGE bags of sweets, pick n mix, white bread cut from a fresh loaf, buttered, and made into a cheese and tomato sandwich, bags of doritos with cheese and chive dip, fajitas with 3 wraps and sour cream, lots and lots and lots of cheese, puddings, Lincolnshire sausages, bacon rind.....

    Oh gosh, I could go on!!!!

    I have, however, just eaten a big fruit salad for breakfast :)

    I miss pizza, bread & butter (seems to be a common theme!) and full fat sausages. *sigh*

    Good on you on your planned day off, tempted to do one purely in honour of yours!

    When I started to read this all that came to mind was the butter pie, chips & beans followed by 1.5 pints cider at the weekend. Not entirely off plan as I counted all the syns (erm that's why I've non left:D).

    But then I started reading & realised there is so much I've been missing out on without realising it; pizza, fresh pasta, battered fish, white bread but only that which you cut yourself, mince pies, crumpets, biscuits.

    Ok I could have biscuits, crumpets & mince pies, but I really don't want to that many syns on those things, I'd rather have glass of wine:D

    Have a lovely day & something to look forward to.

    I have had kind of planned days off and had treats of things I missed like fish and chips mmmm There are lots of thing I miss but what I do miss in a way is the relaxed way of just being able to 'have' those things but I can't go there or I'd soon be back at the weight I was :eek: so just have to have every now and then when can plan in or the urge overtakes me!
    Being able to just scoff a bowl of nuts/bombay mix that sort of thing was bad but so good!....28g = a lot of syns and not a lot of satisfaction! Pah!

    Enjoy your day by the way and hope that you enjoy it but it can be strange how those things don't taste as nice as they used to somehow! You might be running out of the wedding to get some salad and/fruit :p

    My day off would go like this:

    Wake up - Fresjly squeezed Oj, crumpets with lurpak, and maybe a cheese topped muffin.

    Lunch - Pizza hut buffet with cheesey garlic sticks and pasta and a bottle of white (new zealand please or Sancerre!)

    Snacks - Pic and mix and krispy kremes and ben and jerrys! (unlimited and not making me feel sick!)

    Evening Meal - Chinese buffet - Duck pancakes, Sweet and sour chicken balls, chips, dim sums and all that battered and deep fried yum!

    More wine - and more sweets!

    OMG no wonder i gained so much weight if this is a 'perfect day!'

    Now my life is ruled by the likes of scan bran, SW quiches, 42g of cheese and Quorn!! haha!

    Ooh, how exciting! I'm having a planned off plan day on Saturday! I'll stick to a SW brekky, but then it will be full on Indian banquet in the afternoon, with lots of beers. I can't wait!

    Enjoy your off plan day x

    I am feeling a bit guilt about starting this now Sue! - I am sorry if you all have an unplanned off day as a result.

    I have obviously learned something by doing SW though because now I'm even planning in advance what I will eat when I'm not on the sodding plan!!! My life will be ruled by food diaries and spreadsheets forever.

    Emsie - you're probably right - I'll be hunting out the strawbs in the evening buffet at the wedding & eating carrot sticks. Shirleen - Hell will freeze over before I choose to eat Scanbran on a off plan day!!!!! :)

    EB - Sancerre - I had forgotton about that!!! I might have to have some at the wedding

    This is all very well but I don't think you are committed enough to the plan, and this thread is leading folks astray...






    I'm kidding! Good on you and I hope you enjoy every mouthful!!!! lol

    If it's lifelong thing to change our way of eating, I totally agree with days/weekends off, otherwise, boredom will set in.
    I had my wild five night weekend last weekend, and drank way too much wine, and gained 1.5lbs, totally acceptable as I deserved it.
    This week, I have three meals out, but as I knew this would happen eventually, and you can't be a hermit, I will accept the consequences, and then get back to it :eek:
