Breastfeeding Mum's Food Diary

    After following Slimming World for a few years and getting to target, I ended up falling pregnant which was amazing, but I put 3 stone on!
    My daughter is now just over 4 weeks old and I want to get back on track. I have about 1 stone 12lbs to lose, and would love to lose a stone in the next 6 weeks as I'm a Bridesmaid at my best friends wedding.
    I am breastfeeding my daughter, and couldn't find any other diary's on here of mums who are in the same situation, so I'm hoping this will help not only me, but others too.
    I find writing my food down really helps me keep focus. I always used to have a 'treat' day on weigh day, where I eat what I like (within reason obviously) I found this helped me stick to the plan for the week as I had something to look forward to, so will be doing this again.
    Tomorrow will be the first day 100% on the plan and weigh day will be every Saturday and 'treat' day.
    I look forward to having everyone's input so any questions or advice will be much appreciated!
    Will be back in the morning to post my food plan for the day :)

    Day 1 has started, and so far so good. I think the key for me is planning ahead.
    What a beautiful day outside, so once I've fed my daughter, me and my husband are going to go out for a walk with the buggy and make the most of this weather whilst we can!
    As she is only 4 weeks old I get 5 Healthy Extras, which they recommend you to have 3 of which to be 'A' choice:

    Breakfast: chopped up banana and apple with fat free Greek yoghurt. 2x Alpen Light bars (HeB) a glass of milk (HeA)

    Lunch: 2 slices of nimble (HeB) toasted with 2x slices Leerdammer Cheese (HeA) and tomato.1 pack of Pom Bears (5 syns) asda raspberry and blackberry yoghurt (5.5 syns)

    Dinner: chicken thighs, coated in tomato purée, 4 slices chorizo (2 syns) and a sprinkle of grated mature cheddar (2.5 syns) served with roasted carrots, potatoes, red onion, pepper and cherry tomatoes.

    Total syns 15/15

    I have 1 more A choice so will use that on milk throughout the day for tea and coffee.

    So I haven't been very good at writing down my meals, and maybe that is why I only lost 1 pound this week, so as of tomorrow I will write down everything and see if this helps, it's just finding the time to sit down and do it but I will!
