    Hello everyone!

    I've been thinking. At my daughters school, they have a style of marking work which gives specific praise for a specific 'thing', a highlighted area which needs attention, and a target for aspiration and improvement. I think this would be a good tool for SW. We could have a star, window and wish each week or as often as needed as a way of staying motivated, on track and realistic about creeping habits! It works like this:

    It's called Star, Window and Wish (and these are my smilie choices :D).

    Star :0clapper: = specific praise for something fabulous

    Window :booboo: = specific area where things need to be addressed

    Wish :fingerscrossed: = a target to be acheived (usually small and achievable in the short term and can be linked to the next star)

    ********************

    These are mine following the bank holiday weekend:

    Star :0clapper: = I stuck to plan at the cinema, munching on apple slices, ryvita minis, and a fibre plus bar (2 x HEB) with a diet coke.

    Window :booboo:= I've been sneaking mouthfuls from my children's treats - a taste from baking, a lick of the icing bowl, a lemon sherbert - and not counting them in my syns.

    Wish :fingerscrossed: = I'm going to investigate more variety in my HEX choices this week and have a different one each day.



    What do you think? And what would yours be?

    xx:)

    Great thread!

    Star :0clapper: = I drank vodka and slimline tonics for the most part at a wedding on Saturday! It would normally have been wine and then Baileys!

    Window :booboo:= I ate a fair bit of white bread at the weekend after the drinking on Saturday! Felt it though - my stomach went rock hard and I was really uncomfortable!

    Wish :fingerscrossed: = I'm back on plan as of yesterday and hope for a STS this week and also going camping this weekend so going to make good food choices!

    I love this idea! I'm gonna hop on board!

    Star - Thought I had had a bad week last week, so had a strict weekend and managed to lose a pound and get my Club 10 award!:)

    Window - I have a relaxed day on a Tuesday (day after WI) and don't watch what I eat and now I feel all bloated! :(

    Wish - Straight on to plan Tuesday morning, regardless!

    Hope I've done this right? :)

    I really like the sound of this Cupcake, mine are:

    Star: I managed to avoid the ice cream man not once, or twice, but 3 times this week:cool:I was craving ice cream so bad but settled for a mini milk at 1.5 syns instead.

    Window: I take the night of my WI off but this week I ate too much pizza instead of just eating until I was satisfied and now I feel massive:( Lesson learned.

    Wish: Lose at least half a pound this week to get my weight down into the next stone category:)

    Star - Lost 1lb even though my dr put me on steroids for my asthma, which has a side effect of weight gain.:D

    Window - couldn't do my exercise for the whole week because of the tablets and my breathing issues and so got a bit lazy.

    Wish - to get back on track with exercise and making sure I have my HEX's (I have WW danish brown which is 3 slices, I have the first slice at breakfast and forget the other 2) or I measure my milk out and have a few cups of tea and forget to have the rest.
