Mmmm sausage caserole, you've inspired me. Think I'll have to nip to the butchers and buy some syn free sausages. They do a garlic and herb one it stinks the fridge out for days but tastes delicious.

Well I did it - stuck to plan 100% for a whole day. I am really motivated right now which is good as have been wobbling for some time. I am shocked to realise I weigh more now than I did last year but its my own fault for letting things slide so much. I feel I have my old enthusiasm back which is key to success!

Mini goal to lose 7 pounds by end of October - can be done! I am going to keep the syn's low like I used to back in the day and im also not drinking - having just come back from 2 weeks in the sun with plenty of beer/vino the detox will do me good!

Today is red

Breakfast : 2 weetabix with banana and 125ml ss milk

Lunch : chicken and ham salad with 2 boiled eggs and extra light mayo (0.5 syns) turned into egg mayo. I tbsp of branston (1 syn) and half a muller light yohurt mixed with an apple.

Tea : haddock with new pots (HXB) and broccoli

Snack : Muller light, hobnob (3.5)

Hot milk before bed hxa

Syns : 5

Sounds good :)

I had potato cakes for breakfast so I could save my HexB for my rivita snack.

For lunch its Tuna Jacket and salad.
How much Mayo is 0.5 syns, I have 2 tbsp of extra light for dinner and was going to syn it as 2 but if its 0.5 for 1 tbsp all the better.

For tea its sausage caserole as inspired by you lol. How do you make yours, I usually bang in some gravy granual but am trying to be extra good this week

Keep up the good work!

I tbsp of extra light mayo is 0.5 - i ended up mixing it with the boiled eggs and having egg mayo chicken salad which was scrummy - i also treated myself to a tbsp of branston pickle - another addiction!

Sausage caserole last night was lovely - so filling which is what i like! I cook 8 sausages - the light choices cumberland tesco ones which are 1 syn each and while they are cooking, fry 2 green peppers and 1 red and 2 small red onions. Mix them both together in caserole dish, throw in the chopped toms and a can of baked beans and then mix in some chilli flakes - so easy yet so yummy - i would normally melt cheese on top but had already spent my A!

How do you make potato cakes?? I am a bit rubbish with breakfast - weetabix is just so easy and dont need to weigh it!

... think Ill give your version on sausage casserole a bash.

The potato cakes are more like rosties, i grated potato and sweade and thinly sliced an onion then boiled them, let them cool and then shaped in to flat circles. they were a bit of faffing and they took ages to cook in the oven. think i need to boil potatoes first then grate them to get rid of the excess water, think thats why they took so long.

I made them last night and then just dry fried them this morning to warm them up.
