After severely losing the plot on my SW journey (hmm - quite an understatement there!!) I am now back on it.

I joined in October 09, lost 3 stone 6 lbs up to Feb this year. And the it all went horribly wrong!!!

I went to class last night after not going for 7 weeks (I work shifts so can't go every week anyway) and not following the plan. I went on holiday last week all inclusive as well. The result was a 5.5 lbs gain. Not so bad, had I not gained 6 lbs before this at my last weigh in 7 weeks ago!!!!

Soooooooo. I have been a SW angel today - OK I went 1 syn over, but considering its * week and I really want chocolate, it's nothing really!!

I went for an EE day of -

B - 2 weetabix with sweetener (b), milk from (a) and a chopped up apple.

L - tuna fishcakes (made by moi!! - tuna, potato, sweetcorn, onion), lettuce and cucumber, el salad cream (2), velvet crunch crisps (4)

D - bacon & vegetable pie (1) - from new mag & made by mum!! (has got carrots, onion, spring onion, mushrooms, courgette in it), SW chips.

S - 2 x butterscotch hi fi (6) and a coffee sachet thing (3)

I need to go food shopping to get some more fruit in!!!!

Oh - and an hour of line dancing, where we seemed to do all the fast complicated ones!!!

Here's to hoping the rest of the week going as well!!

Fingers crossed for you. I have found that when I've had a decent gain I've had really great losses the following week if I stick to plan. Good luck to you.

So, yesterday I had a pretty crappy food day - but hey, today's another day!! :break_diet:

I had my weetabix for breakfast at 6.30am - and I'm still not hungry!!! Odd!!! I'm starting to get a bit hungrier and I know what I'm gonna have when the time comes!! On my way home from work, I popped in to Aldi and got a summer salad bowl (lettuce, red onion, carrot & something else....) and also some smoked salmon to go with it -yummmmmmm. For tea I was gonna have some chicken breasts with tomato & basil sauce / glaze - but Aldi had some 1/2 price lamb chops, so that'll be my tea (probably with cous cous & salad leaves???)

Well, I just wasn't hungry yesterday it would seem!! I ended up just having my breakfast, a packet of Velvet Crunch crisps, then the lamb chops (all 4 - the cat was happy as he got a plate of lamb fat!!) and cous cous. Not a good day - but not really bad either!!

The plan for today is to have an EE day -

B - apple, strawberries (from my garden :D), peach, butterscotch hi fi bar (1/2 b)

D - salad bowl (lettuce, carrot, red onion, red pepper), smoked salmon, hard boiled egg, EL salad cream (2)

T - chicken breasts in tomato & basil sauce (more of a glaze!), new potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, peas

HEA will be milk for tea
HEB - butterscotch hi fi bars

Lets see if I can do it!!!! More syns will happen throughout the day - may count a couple for the chicken breast.

Hello! I kind of made the tuna fishcakes up! I mashed some potatoes, softened some onions, opened a tin of sweetcorn and a tin of tuna, added some salt and pepper, mixed it all together with an egg, made it into fishcake shapes and frylighted it for a few minutes each side. :D

Well, another good day yesterday - pretty much stuck to what I planned and had 10.5 syns :)

Today, I've gone for green. Brekkie was Oatibix flakes and oat bran with jam on (which I had later on!). Dinner was spaghetti on toast. Tea will be spinach & mushroom canneloni (from the latest SW mag), probably with some salad leaves, which I'll be getting ready shortly. I am going to have a Curly Wurly afterwards too :gimi:

The canneloni was YUMMY!!! It was a bit fiddly to get it in the tubes, but soo worth it - and I still have 3 portions left over :D

Yesterday I did a bit of weeding in the garden and (with dad's help!) put together my newly bought raised bed, and planted my veg 'grobox', herb plants, leek plants, sweetcorn plants & cucumber plants. Let's see if I get any veg off them!

I also managed to get another few strawberries off my strawberry plants. And it looks like I'll have some blackcurrants soon - and raspberries & logan berries. Saves a fortune on these!!

I think I have finally cracked it (again!) with the food :). I don't seem to feel as hungry??? I am making sure I eat though! So, that means I may have to start doing the exercise thing!!

I've got a cross trainer / exercise bike in my spare room, and lots of DVD boxsets I can start watching!! Just doing it is the problem!!!!!

So, today is weigh in day - but I can't go to class tonight as I'm working. I did weigh myself on my scales this morning (they are usually the same as the group scales) and according to them, I am 3 lbs lighter!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I know all scales are different, different time of day etc etc but to lose ANYTHING the way I've been lately is a result :D. I might hop on them when I get home tonight as that is more like the time I weigh in.

I know that the only way I'll really know what I've lost is next week at group - but it's convinced me to carry on :D

I've been mixing green & EE days this week, so will carry on with that. Also been drinking more water / nas. Just the exercise bit now.......:eek:
