    2014 was a turning point for me and I have really done myself proud this year so far.

    Jan - Weaned myself of the last of a high dose of anti depressants

    Mar - Took a risk at an intensice driving course

    Apr - Passed my test

    May - Finally got my finances under control and managed to buy my first car

    June- Enrolled to finally finish My AAT become a full AAT memeber ( accountancy course)

    This should feel fantastic and I should be ready to take on the world as I have overcome fears and reached goals I thought were impossible, but instead I am tired, fed up, and my self esteem in on the floor.
    I have been trying to do SW for 2 years with no lasting results because my head has been all over the place. I tried WW for 4 weeks and lost 4lb but felt soooo hungry

    I don't quite understand why I can't just STICK TO THE RULES and lose weight I am so frustrated. I have screamed, cried, given up, restarted, tried other diets, read books on food addiction and all the while I'm still 3-4 stone overweight.

    Giving up is not an option for me though I am going to rejoin a new class on Thur where hopefully no-one knows me and have a fresh start. My Food optimising will start today.

    HEX A: Milk for Coffee
    HEX B: 1 slice of Wholemeal bread

    Syns: 2/15

    B: 1 Toast(with butter 2 syns),Banana and grapes, coffee and sweetner
    L: Chicken thighs and salad
    D: Bolognaise (SW recipe) tomaotoes and mushrooms

    I have worked nights for 18yr now, if i cant sleep i can do stuff to tire myself, but being awake during the night does my head in. I work in a small residential home for adults with special needs, 15 min walk from my house. . I have worked there for 13yr. Love it, its like home from home, kick off ya shoes and put ya feet up. I also have a brother with special needs, he is 44 now, he is downs. so special needs comes second nature to me, I was 13 when he was born. He is apple of my eye, he will live with us, when mam cant manage anymore. Mam is 83 and fitter than me !!! OH i went on a bit there.

    Wine lol, i like my wine too when im off. The 3 things I have to curb is bread, milk and wine. But less bread is good, I was a big bread eater.

    I have eaten lots of food, worried about getting weighed, but I dont think I have done anything wrong ? my syns have been about 5 to 7 a day. What time is your class tomorrow night, mine is at 7pm

    Week 1: Day1

    Hex A: Milk
    Hex B: Oil
    Syns: 35/105
    Exercise: None
    B: Coffee/Milk/Sweetner
    L: Ngau Lam - Thai Beef Stew with vegetables (6) D: Ngau Lam - Thai Beef Stew with vegetables(6) S: Crunchy Nut Cornflakes (10)/4 Spring Rolls (8 ) / Popcorn (5)

    I know today was quite high in syns, however, this has been the one day I knew would not fit perfectly with the plan as it was our monthly free lunch Friday at work! I chose a dish with vegetables, stewed beef and boiled rice. I then added the oil as my HEX B and as it is a thick chip chop curry type sauce I looked up the chip shop curry syns and assuming they mean small tubs doubled the syns and added them to the meal. I could have had a SW dinner but I had left overs from lunch so finished that! All in all I used 35 syns which isn't too bad at all as I have 105 for the week leaving me with 70 (11 syns a day) which more than enough :)

    Im planning my meals today and going shopping! I am so excited in my first week. I love planning, cooking, and eating :)
