    Hello! :wavey:

    I normally keep a food diary on my computer, but I figured on here I'd get some feedback on what might be holding back my uber-weight loss.

    A few things about me:

    -I have a hard time getting my HEA's in. It's like I have an aversion to dairy! I have a love/hate thing with cheese (lonnnng story) and I've recently decided that yoghurt and I will never get along. NEVAHHHH! So milk it is!

    -I am normally an EE girl, but I will try to revisit my Green day roots.

    -My C told me to have 5-20 syns per day until further notice. I will try to stick to 15, but 20 will be my daily goal.

    -Mmmm...exercise is tricky. But I will be aiming for some kind of daily movement. And so...

    On with the show!

    Ooooh, I'm very flattered Honey! I love your foodie pics, always making me want to experiment a little more! I'm half and half - mum's Igbo, Dad's Yoruba! Yeah, I used the syns calculator on the malt! I thought (hoped, lol) it'd be less, being completely void of fat, but oh well.

    I think I'll attempt porridge or egusi soup next, but the palm oil *omg*!!!

    Hiya! I'm doing okay, waiting in trepidation for wednesday's weigh-in, feels like I'm moving at a snails pace, but at least I'm going down not up! I might change up a little for next week, maybe a few more green days.
