Cheekychinchilla's food and stuff

Hi everyone!
I've been thinking about doing this for a little while. I'm really nervous about it as I feel a bit weird about people seeing what I'm eating :eek: But quite a few people commented on one of my threads this week that a diary may help. So, from Monday, I think I will start it and see how it goes.
All suggestions, comments, and advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm doing SW from home with just my starter pack and this forum to help me. So I need all the help I can get :rolleyes:

Anyway, I'll shut up now. Sort of looking forward to starting this now. See you Monday!

Exercise: Over an hour of walking.
Got weighed today and I've lost another whole lb :rolleyes: Ah well, at least it's another one in the right direction!
But have decided to have a little break from SW for Xmas-I'm fed up of having to ignore all the nice stuff and have my Mum and Sister roll their eyes at me when I pass on things. So, until the New Year I will be taking a break. I can't promise I wont go mad, because I know I will....but I'm gonna make sure I still have lots of SW friendly meals and keep up with exercising again-even if it's just walking.

Cheerio for a little bit new diary.xx
Well, I put on 6lbs over my Christmas break :cry: :rolleyes: :eek: Not the end of the world though.
And I have had more time off than I had planned, but I'll be back next week and throwing myself into SW completely. I am determined that this year will be the start of a happy, healthier, and slimmer me :) Plus, there is no way I am going to be a fat brides maid and ruin all the photo's-or not want to look at them!!
So, as there is still a bit of naughty food hanging about I am using this week as an 'easing myself back into it' week-eating healthy, SW friendly meals, but prob still having too many treats. But from Monday, that is it, counting every syn and eating as healthily as I can.
So, will be back here on Monday with the first days food. Better go change my ticker :cry:
Back on the wagon today :D Although it is bad timing as it's my birthday on Thursday and I will most definitely be having a day off. But, 6 days on SW is better than non at all...I hope.
