Hi everyone,

I have come over from CD as I was starting to really struggle after 8 weeks and -21lbs, to stay on track and I always intended to follow SW principles for maintaining goal weight, and decided that it would be good to do SW to lose the last 11lbs or so, to get into good habits for maintenance.

I have been reading through a few diaries over the last week or so and have been really impressed with the losses recorded and also the yummy food :D

I don't get paid until Friday, so have been trying to eat sensibly since last Friday, plus using up my CD packs (1 or 2 per day). I joined online today for three months and my food delivery arrives on Friday evening, which means that I can really get stuck into it from Saturday.

It is my intention to record all food/drink/syns consumed...honestly ;) and if anyone has any suggestions or comments, then please be my guest.

Thanks for reading

Morning mum,

Yes, feeling excited. Apart from the 16 hour flight (in total), and apparently the weather has taken a complete nose dive and will be max of -2...:eek:

I'm sure we'll have a nice time though, and definitely looking forward to seeing the Niagara Falls. Oh that reminds me actually, I told John what you said about seeing 2 of the "7 wonders of the world" and he came back with something quite amusing lol I'll email you. :D

I hope you're well this morning. I'm feeling abso disgusting - see my diary :D

bleugh!

Love you,
Jess xxx
I look forward to receiving the email :D

I have read your diary and replied to what you said. Shame that you will be going from lovely spring sunshine to minus 10 or whatever :D Still Johnny will keep you warm ;) At least you are going on a lovely trip instead of being stuck here at work etc. :jelous:

Ok so not actually fully on the plan until Saturday, after I have taken delivery of all my goodies on Friday evening. However, I am trying to make good food choices, so that I can easily slip into SW at the weekend.

Yesterday I had

Grapes for breakfast, lunch was a sandwich made with no spread, some tuna, cucumber and lettuce and an Activia ff cherry yogurt. Mid-afternoon snack of banana, apple and a plum and a CD shake. Dinner was a lamb steak, diced and stir-fried with some kale, spring onions and celery. Evening snack was some grapes and a CD Mousse.

Not exactly SW and definitely not CD but all things considered, not too bad.

Today so far:

Breakfast: Grapes and 0% Greek yogurt

Snack: 1 pear, plum and apple

Lunch: Prawn and smoked salmon salad, which was all lettuce, tomato and about 4 prawns and a miniscule amount of smoked salmon, followed by a Muller FF Strawberry Yogurt and a twin pack of Go Ahead Strawberry yogurt breaks (3.5 syns)

Snack: Twin pack of Go Ahead Strawberry yogurt breaks (3.5 syns)
2 Twin packs of Go Ahead Strawberry yogurt breaks 7 syns.....see, have something in the house and just HAVE to eat it. bl**dy things were talking to me all night.......grrrrrrrr

Dinner: Again, not sure yet will update later. I have some chicken thighs and a piece of cod in the freezer so will see what I fancy when I get home. Update: Probably going to make a nice casserole and bung in loads of veggies and thighs then I will have a meal for tomorrow as well. Forward planning......excellent

I'm now going to check out the website for some recipe ideas.........jeez I need ideas. I live on my own and I just can't get inspired to cook for myself and that is something that has got to change.

xx

Your food choices sound good to me Chels!

I'm lazy so have copied and pasted some food suggestions from another post that I did a few days back. It was asking for recipes with pulses and don't know whether you love your beans ;) but here are the recipes in case they are any use to you. I particularly love the soup and have it every week. All recipes are really good though:

Spicy root and lentil casserole (more like a curry):
Spicy root & lentil casserole recipe - Recipes - BBC Good Food

Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup - (lovely with or without milk):
Spiced carrot & lentil soup recipe - Recipes - BBC Good Food

Ben Granger's Chickpea Stew with tomatoes and green chilli:
BBC - Food - Recipes : Chickpea stew with tomatoes and green chilli

Other suggestions would be things like:

Lasagne, Risotto, Paella, Omelette, Jacket spuds, Stir Fry, Curries etc.

Sounds great mum your food choices and it's good that you're doing the best you can until you can "properly" do SW. I spent £62 (inc delivery) on Sainsburys online this morning (will be delivered when I get back from Buffalo) and got HEAPS of stuff!!! I think it will last me a while and I'm going to have a big cooking fest :D

Remember you can always come to me for dinner. V is away on holiday the weekend after I get back so we'll have a girly night. :D xxx
I'm loving the sound of that and I will return the compliment and have you over, with or without your OH xx

Bloated, felt fat and panicky!!

Morning all, hope everything is good for you :D

I don't know if you saw my food log for yesterday but it was basically free food and 14 syns.

Last night, after I had eaten the chicken casserole with loads of veggies - despite the fact that it was all free - I felt really bloated, tight waistband and FAT! Then panic set in. How can I possibly lose weight after eating all this food. Having been on CD for the last 8 weeks I am not used to having this horrible bloated feeling, complete with a distended stomach. Then the mind starts playing horrible little tricks, doubting that it works, etc. Stupid, because I know it does, just by reading all the diaries on here and by looking at all the amazing success stories/photos in the SW magazine.

I didn't dare get on the scales this morning, just in case they showed a bit of a gain. I knew that if they had then I would be totally demoralised and probably give up. Do not want to do that!!

I have frozen the rest of the casserole to have either later tonight or tomorrow. I just need some reassurance that my choices for yesterday were fine, so that I can trust what I am doing and trust the diet.

Today, so far I have had:-

2 go ahead Strawberry yogurt breaks - 3.5 syns

Breakfast: 0% Total Greek Yogurt with Kiwi Fruits

Lunch: Chicken Salad, diet coke

ahhh i get that feeling all the time....when youve eaten a massive bowl of slimming world lasagna and feel so full you panic! I think weve associated feeling full with gaining weight. But your making yourself full with all the RIGHT food...which just stops you binging on the wrong stuff :) Good luck!! xxx

Thanks for that Bubbles, I just needed to hear someone say that for a bit of reassurance.

You look terrific by the way. What a difference in your photos. Well done x

Aaarrgh! I'm going to drive you all up the wall!!!

Hi,

Me and Mrs Lampard went to Nando's for lunch :D We both had a pitta, with chicken breast, tiny bit of salad and a dollop of medium piri piri sauce.

My head is telling me that the pitta would be HEXB, the chicken and salad free and to just syn the small amount of mayo and the dollop of piri piri. I thought I would just check to make sure online and can't find it anywhere. Can anyone advise please? Just want to make sure I am doing it all right, to give myself the best chance of getting this last lot of lbs off.

Thanks xx

I think you can only have pitta has heb if it's wholemeal. Still good choices though...

I'm just trying to figure out if I can change my red day to an EE day so I can have chips with my burger tonight...i'd have to forego the burger bun but I could live with that.

Right back to work now - wish I could stay outside this afternoon. :)

Oh b**ger, will have to syn the pitta then as it wasn't wholemeal......:cry:

I'm not sure if you can switch mid-way through the day Alli, I have no doubt that someone else can put you right on that score though. I've been invited to a BBQ after work so hopefully can grab me a bit of sunshine before it goes down. Will have SW where I can :D

Hi Yang,

Found your new diary. I hope it is going well. I think Slimming World would be too complicated for me (I was born blonde). ;)

I am glad we passed on the Vitality Show with the protests going on in London.

Hi honey, yes it is feeling right Lelly, no panic if I have something 'naughty' as long as it is all factored in, everything is fine.... I just want to feel normal and not worry about food and eating etc., be like a slim person, which I was once, and naturally curb intake after a bit of a session ;)

Do you know, I wouldnt have given the protests another thought, it would have been a nightmare and we would have probably got caught up in it and been arrested for inciting a riot or something :p I did explain on another post somewhere about stressing about travelling alone, that is why without Jess I bottled it. Not about meeting up with you, my lovely xxx Something we must arrange soon :)
