Heya lovely! This post is making me seriously hugry, and I'm a vegetarian. You did great!

I'll go over it and add some notes, hopefully it'll make me think more about what I'm eating too!

Breakfast was super healthy- but were you full enough after a small (light) breakfast? Perhaps that's why you ended up snacking! Hehe~ Don't feel bad about that though, you barely touched your syns with those.

Lunch looks delicious, you could add a bed of salad or some SW chips if you're still feeling peckish? I find that just some rocket, cucumber and cherry tomatoes goes really well with omelettes.

Dinner would ideally have more speed foods, I think? 100% on plan means filling 1/3 of the plate with them, right (correct me if beans are speed)? Could you maybe add some boiled parsnips/carrots/broccoli?

Good luck! ♡

Thanks so much hun! I actually added in fried (with fry light :p) onions and mushrooms to make up my free food. I'm not normally a breakfast person so having a wedge of watermelon first thing seems huge to me! I will stock up on the cucumbers during my next supermarket raid. I also have a fantastic pickled cucumber recipe which I will add below which makes a fantastic salad addition.
Your weight loss journey looks amazing!! Well done! :worthy:I always fall off the wagon when I lose the first stone because I feel so fab! This year no matter how many times I flounder (I really just wanted to use that word) I am hopping back on!!! :innocent0001:

Well now I'm going to have to make pickled cucumbers, aren't I?! I've been toying with the idea of pickling my own eggs for a while now... Does it really only need to sit for 30 minutes?? I expected to leave it overnight.
Anyway cucumbers are the greatest! I have them with everything as they are so low in calories and so full of water. Watermelon too... Bring back Summer!

As for me, I always drop the first stone in only 1 or 2 weeks, then it slows down immensely. I'm working hard to stay motivated right now, seeing everyone lose 3lbs a week while I STS or drop 1/2. You can do it, though! How much do you have to lose? You might have it on your profile but I can't see anything on my phone hehe~

Keep it up! x

Yep, only 30 minutes, I sometimes don't even let it rest that long at all!

Stick with it hun! You can do it! Sounds like you had a quick loss and sometimes your body then decides to try and hold onto everything else for a few weeks but it will start coming off again. Don't knock 1/2 pound!! Even with that you'll have lost half a stone by Christmas!

I have 4 stone and 9lb to lose to get me down to 10stone which I'd be happy with!

Looks like you have the same goal! We should be slimming sistas! x

Ooooh goody! I have about 4 lbs more than you to lose, that's pretty close! I'm 100% down with being slimtwins- all my friends are skinny wee things and I can't really talk to them about this stuff... We can drop those 4-5 stone together easypeasy!

I'm going for a couple of SP days to try n kickstart this week (I'm attempting 26lbs by the end of the year, ha! Are you doing the 3 month challenge?), so hopefully it'll be better than 1/2 next week. Lentil soup now! x

What's the three month challenge? Sounds fun....ish!

I'm the same. I'm the fat friend! I used to be the skinny one. :confused:

We can definitely do this! I'm actually really determined as I don't want to ruin my friends wedding photos if they have to shoot everything in wide lens. I also
don't want to see everyone at festive season looking more like the Christmas ham.:eatdrink023: People will look to us for inspiration because we'll be so fabulous and slim! :king2:

I remember being here year ago and there were loads of different little clubs you could join to make up a little crew but I couldn't see any weigh in ones.

Hi Queen Omi,

Your daily eating lots great except if your craving things I just search for healthy alternatives of recipes I love. for example i love KFC popcorn chicken so i searched and came across this recipe. http://www.theendlessmeal.com/skinny-bang-bang-cauliflower/ it actually tasted just like it.

I also have a massive sweet tooth, love caramel so once again i searched about and found this recipe, its like salted caramel nut butter, its a amazing combo between almond butter (just like peanut butter) just heaps healthy and salted caramel. http://thenutbutterhub.com/salted-caramel-almond-nut-butter/

Start searching for your favs and it will help on your journey!

'Fun' is a strong word, hehe!
It's just something everyone here seems to do;
https://www.minimins.com/threads/new-quarterly-challenge-countdown-to-2017-oct-nov-dec.355908/
But I intend to reward myself with a treat in the Jan sales if I do well!

I'm exactly the same, my friends used to grab me around the waist and tell me how jealous they were of my (9 and a half stone) figure... How times change- I'm almost ashamed to be seen with them now, I feel like the hulk! When's this wedding? I have one this time next year and I fully intend on looking good in the photos too...

I used to stalk the forums before I committed to SW, and I swear they're not as active as they seemed a year or two ago. A little online group would be nice, I like my Image Therapy group but they're all much older than me and come with their husbands/wives/friends/family, so I don't really feel friendly with anyone. Perhaps we should start a Facebook one... It's a shame you're so far away and we can't go weight-loss shopping!

Thank you for the motivation x

Hi Brittnay! Thank you. That KFC chicken sounds yum! I will definitely be giving that a go! I'm such a savoury sucker! How's your weight loss journey going? x

Thanks Honey! I will join the challenge! Bought some fennel tea yesterday too as my friend who lost quite a bit on slimming world says it really helps. It smells like boiled Sambuca so I'm actually afraid to take a sip. :hide:
I reward myself constantly. Just bought a very expensive scarf because I figure when I get all skinny at least it will still fit. :D
A facebook group would be great!! It was three years ago since I did slimming world and there was plenty of different groups to support which made it much more personal and easier to stick with it!
I made a vegetarian pasta for my din dins last night. Capers, spinach, chopped tomatoes, onions, peppers and balsamic vinegar and it was yum! I've made it through two days now and I know it gets easier so just have to stick with it!
I get you with the hulk thing. I used to be a stylist and I love my clothes so it makes it very hard when I look like I'm bursting through them.
What is image therapy?

Morning!

I think I have some fennel tea in the cupboard, are you supposed to have it with each meal or..? I don't find it that bad, really, but I'm a fan of liquorice and similar flavours.

That sounds delish, I'll have to give it a go. Love my spinach! I'm about to attempt an adaptation of pumpkin pie, wish me luck!

Image Therapy is just what they call staying to group and getting "peer support" I think. If you want to add Kuma Kuraru (picture is a drawing of a cat and a fish) on Facebook, we can form a little group... Just need to recruit members! Of course, we need a group name too!

You can do it! Just keep your eye on the prize :D x

Recipes! :eating:
Carrot & Corriander Soup (Syn free)
2 Onions (Chopped)
500g of carrots (peeled and chopped)
1 litre of Vegetable or chicken stock
1 tbsp of ground coriander
1 tsp of fresh coriander (optional-garnish)

Chuck it all in a big pot, boil on high heat for 5 minutes and then turn down the heat and simmer for a further 25 (until vegetables are nice and soft)
Blitz in a blender or with a handheld
Sprinkle on some fresh coriander and enjoy!

Sweet Potato & Onion Fritters
3 Onions (half and slice length ways)
1 egg whisked
1 large sweet potato (grated or I used my mini chopper)
1 tsp of ground coriander
1 tsp of cumin
1 tsp of garam masala
Frylight (I always use sunflower for this)-you need quite a bit so I always count these as 2 syns

Mix together in a big bowl and form golf sized balls which I then pat down with my palm.
Spray cooking oil (quite a bit) on the baking tray
Place the fritters onto the baking tray and spray with frylight
Bake in over at 180 for 15 minutes, take out and turn over with a spatula and spray more fry light and pop back in for a further 15 minutes.
You can put these under the grill for five minutes afterwards if you like them crispy and I serve this with a mint yogurt dip! Yummy!
