    Hi everyone :)
    I rejoined slimming world last night and determined to stick to it this time. I have done it in the past and managed to lose four stone but due to a hectic last few months at uni I put 1.5 stone back on so am starting afresh.
    I have around seven stone to lose
    I am a vegetarian so only do green days

    Breakfast: 2 x weetabix (hexb) with skimmed milk (hexa) and fruit
    Snack: Apple and watermelon. Club cake bar (5 syns)
    Lunch: stir fry vegetables with noodles (dried). Soy sauce and chili powder
    Snack : 4 x dry ryvita dark rye (hexb)
    Dinner; jacket potato with low fat spread (1.5 Syns) and salad with vinaigrette dressing (1 syn)

    Snack: crisps (4 syns)
    Drinks: diet Pepsi, sugar free squash, tea with mill from allowance and sweetener

    syns; 11.5
    Total syns: 11.5/105

    Worried I am eating too much but will have to wait and see.

    sarah83 I will be a yummy mummy!

    Hi Becky,
    I'm restarting SW (again) in Sept, although I'll be doing it from home.

    I've got about 5 stones to lose so maybe we could help each other?

    I used to like alternating my days and loved green day too so hopefully I'll get some inspiration from your ideas.

    Hope you have a good day :)

    Hi Sarah, yes of course :) I'm trying to be more creative this time round as I get bored sticking to the same foods, so I hope my food diary gives you some good ideas and would be interested if you have any green day recipes you would like to share :D . Just tried a vegetarian version of the diet coke chicken recipe and I have to say it was delicious and will definitely be making it again.
    Have had one of those days where I seem to be hungry all the time but I have snacked on all free foods so at least I am making better choices than I did before joining :D
    Anyway onto my food diary :)
    Day 2 22/08/14

    Breakfast: 2 x weetabix with skimmed milk and fruit - am struggling to think of other breakfast ideas as I never feel like cooking in the mornings and I do not currently have any scales to measure out different cereal.

    Snack: More fruit and some cherry tomatoes. Mug shot

    Lunch: Jacket potato with low fat spread (1.5 syns) and salad with dressing (1 syn)

    Snack: More fruit and Pops crisps - 4 syns

    Dinner: Diet coke chicken with rice - substituted the chicken for quorn pieces and added in vegetable stock instead of beef. This was absolutely delicious and I would definitely recommend it! It tastes so much better than it sounds.

    Snack: Watermelon, hot chocolate (2 syns) and club cake bar (5 syns)
    syns = 13.5
    Total syns = 25/105

    Have only had one health extra A and one healthy extra B today. I struggle with what to have as a second healthy extra A as I am not a big fan of cheese. Also do not know what to have as a second healthy extra B.
    Will have to have a look through my books again in the morning and get some more ideas :D

    Planning ahead today as been looking back through my book for ideas :) Subject to change but will update if this happens :)

    Breakfast: weetabix with skimmed milk, apple and watermelon - really need to start mixing my breakfasts up a bit will perhaps have fruit and yoghurt tomorrow instead :D
    Lunch: Left over diet coke quorn with noodles and salad (1 syn) :)
    snack:ff yogurt
    Dinner: Probably be making pasta and sauce - home-made sauce: passata, quorn, tomatoes, mushrooms, chilli powder, garlic.
    Snacks: doctor who is on tonight so saving my syns for snacks during this although I will probably be too engrossed in it to eat ;) - club bar (6 syns) and crisps (4 syns) 2 x ryvita (HEXb)
    Syns: 11
    Total syns: 36/105

    I must say I am feeling so much healthier and more energetic since starting slimming world. Had a sneaky weigh on the scales earlier and they say I have put on a pound so am slightly worried that I am eating too much so may try and cut down on the fruit as really hoping for a big loss as it is my first week! If anyone has any suggestions that would be fab x

    Hi MelonCollie :)

    Ended up going out for dinner today and am very happy that I managed to stay on plan :) Ended up having jacket potato and beans (no butter) with some salad. Even left the coleslaw so was syn free :D Then when everyone had desert I had a cup of lemon tea with half a sugar (0.5 syns).
    Also ate 4 alphabet letter sweets (unsure on syns but they are tiny so guessing around 3 syns at the very most to be safe.
    Also ended up having crisps (4 syns) but not the chocolate bar.
    Hot chocolate (2 syns).
    Syns today = 10.5
    Total syns = 35.5 :)

    Been a busy day today as went down to the seaside with my family. None of the restuarants offered healthy food so I ended up going to the arcades whilst they ate as I wasn't feeling very hungry anyway :) Did end up having a small toffee fudge icecream though which I am counting as a full days syns and will have slightly less than usual tomorrow just in case it was more :)
    Breakfast: Orange, nectarine and activia ff vanilla yoghurt.
    Snack: Toffee fudge icecream (one small scoop on a cone) - ~ 15 syns.

    Lunch: 4 x ryvita with cottage cheese when I got home (HEXb).

    Dinner: Pasta with homemade sauce: passata, quorn, tomatoes, mushrooms, pepper, chilli powder & garlic.
    Syns today = 15
    Total syns = 50.5/105 :)
    Still need to have my hexa and second hexb so may have a glass of milk later or some weetabix with milk if I am feeling hungry.:)

    You could have some cheese for your B choice. Maybe do a quorn lasagne, or a veg lasagne and use the B cheese on top. I love cheese in mashed potatoes myself.. Soft cheese on ryvita?

    Good idea! Thanks :) Will have to buy some cheese next time I do a shop x

    I'm here to sub too Becky!
    If you eat them, have you thought about adding lentils or beans as a change for quorn? Sometimes I sprinkle pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds or nuts on my salads...they can be a HexB. Just some thoughts....:D

    Hello janetelizabeth :) Have never thought of using lentils or beans in my cooking, will have to look up some recipes, thanks :)
    Ooooh didn't realise they could be used a a hexb, will have to get some :D

    Have edited today's food diary to include photos and have updated what I have eaten.

    The lentils etc are actually on the free list, so eat away!! And eggs...so much goodness in them for us green plan members.
    In the green book...the Hex B choices are on several pages...the nuts are there too.
