Hello :)

Your food diaries look good, but don't have too many syn free days after the wedding. You'll find you start to feel deprived without syns, and that's when things get dangerous! My tip after over-indulging is to drink lots of water...

Good luck on your weightloss journey x
Hi Chickadee83, when you say you woke up feeling crappy did you mean physically or emotionally? Because everyone needs the occasional day off plan, and to not feel at all guilty about it.It was just one day, and as it was a wedding it was a never to be repeated day at that! I hope you enjoyed yourself :) On the other hand it you meant physically then it's probably a good job it was just one day!! It's good you're keeping a diary on here, I'm thinking of starting one myself after my holiday xx
Charmel- yeah have been having loads of water today and felt better for it as the day wore on :) just had a lindor chocolate from the wedding favours from last night so will need to amend my syns! Getting back to full syns tomorrow! Thanks for looking at my food diary and for your advice :)
Hi blue bunny - Just physically crappy... Tired, sluggish, fuzzy head! I actually didn't drink TOO much I think it was just lack of sleep, always seem to wake up REALLy early the morning after I've been drinking! Had a lovely time at the wedding so it was all worth it :)

I've found it really beneficial keeping a food diary so far and hopefully it will help me identify which foods help slow/speed weight loss as time goes on. You should do one after your holiday for sure! Where are you off to?
Had a sneaky peek at the scales this morning to see the damage from the wedding... 1.5 lb gain! This has given me even more motivation to up my game this week - I now need to lose 3.5 lb to keep on my target of 2 lb per week...

Have decided to try a red day as seems to work really well for some...
Going to supermarket to pick up some things as don't have much meat in the house. Here's what I'm planning on having ( will update at end of day.)

2 eggs mashed in a cup

Wasn't too hungry at lunchtime.
42g reduced fat cheddar(HEX A)

Homemade Low fat Hummus ( Made with free food and 113 g chickpeas fom 2nd HEB)
SF - cherry tomatoes for dipping.

Snacks - wafer thin chicken and cheese slice roll-ups.

Thanks silly sausage - I'm still
Quite new to slimming world so I'm still
A tiny bit unsure if I'm doing it right but the comments from people are encouraging! Glad you like the motto, trying my best to send out positive vibes :)
Hi there Chickadee you're doing fine from what I can see :) I'm off to Tunisia on the 10th, for 2 weeks, AI. Yikes!! Went there a couple of years ago and if I remember rightly gained 2 lbs over the fortnight, which I would be more than happy with this time around ;) Must have been something to do with the heat! Having said that the temperature in England at the moment must surely be having some slimming effect on us all......x
I live in Scotland and it's raining today :( we had some nice days last week though so can't complain!

I think to go away for 2 weeks and put on 2lbs in fab, I'm not long back from 3 weeks in Canada and put on 4lbs!

Holiday sounds great, hope you have a lovely time x
Original - Tues 2/08/2011

Had another sneaky peek on scales this morning and it seems the 1.5lb gain from the wedding has gone and I've lost another 1/2 lb on top of that!:D Defo not looking at the scales again until official weigh in on Friday!!!
