Claire fairy's new diary- looking to the future.

Hey everyone,

I have decided to start a new diary. Just got back from Corfu with a 7lb gain and now am ready to start afresh and really stop messing around.

While I was on holiday I was so embarrassed about my weight, I couldn't bring myself to put my swimming costume on. I wouldn't even roll my trousers up and I wouldn't lie on the sun loungers. I really felt like I ruined my holiday and my boyfriends too because I was so embarrassed about it. Its given me a kick up the bum I need I hope!

So food for today: Wednesday 27th October
Porridge (HEB+ 0.5)
Milk (HEA)


Pasta in sauce

Sausage (12 syn)
Mash potatoes
Carrots, sweetcorn and green beans
Onion gravy (2 syn)

Total syns: 14.5

Only having sausage tonight cuz unprepared will be back to low syn tomorrow!!

Welcome back

Hey claire! Welcome home!
I felt so sad and sorry for you Reading that post about your holiday. I know exactly how you feel then it makes you wonder why we eat the food if it doesn't make us happy in the long run. I'm sure you didn't spoil your boyfriends holiday! I never go swimming on holiday as don't wanna walk past people in my costume and I love the pool. But hopefully next year we'll both be happy to parade out costumes :)

well done for getting back on track. I put on 5lbs after my cruise and trying to get back on track, I have a little girly weekend away this weekend so gonna be naughty but hoping to walk it off!

Looking forward to Reading your diaries again x
10lbs 8 weeks....

Hey harrysmum,

how was your cruise? Hope you had a lovely time :)

Well my sister made a visit this weekend with her partner so been off plan... again. But got lots off fruit and veg yesterday and OH and I planned meals to cook with what we have so from Monday no excuse back on plan 100% there will be just under 8 weeks till Christmas- how scary is that!! So I will be aiming for ten pound. I am going to add a new ticker on my signature!

So meals we have planned for the next couple of weeks are:

  • Sausage caserole
  • Shepherds pie with veg
  • Beef Stroganoff
  • Chili
  • Paprika chicken
  • Chicken curry
  • Roast pork

If I lost ten pounds that would take me below the next stone bracket which would be good to start the new year with I think :)

I just need to get back to spending time on here and being motivated to cook nice things and be organised.

So 10lbs- 8 weeks here we go!! Start weight 16.9

Right Day 1 of my 8 week challenge until Christmas!! ------------------------ This is the line being drawn under all the messing about.

2 toast (HEB+2 syn)
Low fat spread ( 2syn)
Ketchup (1 syn)
2 eggs scrambled

Chili ( 1 syn)
cous cous
Vanilla muller light

Snacks if needed: Banana and apple


I hope I can do this.

Hey lovely!!

Not quite back on track yet, but have decided to change my weigh day to a friday as weekends are where I tend to come off track, so by changing to a friday, if I do have a wobble at the weekend I will still have 5 days to pull it back and hopefully won't feel like giving up!

So Friday tomorrow- starting again.. again!

Happy Birthday for the weekend!! Hope you have a lovely time :)

Lets get back on track together. 10 lbs by xmas I am going for- thats about 7 weeks or just over.

Claire xx

Hey everyone!!

RIGHT!!- I have decided to start weighing on a friday from now on. So today is the first day of my new start. I haven't been in the right frame of mind since coming back on holiday to do it, but have myself a stern talking too last night and feeling positive this morning. I CAN DO THIS!!

I weighed this morning and 1.5 of the seven pounds I put on on holiday off :scale:

So I will be back on here everyday, and remember why I am doing this... for myself!! and for my boyfriend so he can have the lovely looking girlfriend that he deserves :)

So today looks like this:

2 ww toast (HEB)
Low fat spread (2 syn)

Wholegrain pasta in sauce
Roast chicken
Cherry tomatoes
Muller light and grapes

Snacks: Banana

Chicken and bacon pasta:
Peppers, onions, sweetcorn, sweetcorn and sugar snapped peas tinned tomatoes
Green chili
Roast chicken

Sprinkle cheese: (HEA)= 3 syn

Total syns: 5

I will update any changes later, but that is that plan!! I'm glad I have found my mojo, lets hope it stays!! :bunnydance:
