Let me introduce myself, I'm Sue.

I don't usually 'blog' or have any affiliations to online social sites either.
I'm asking you lovely, knowledgeable people here to follow and support me in my journey to lose 100lb by May 25th 2014.

You see, my very handsome youngest son is to marry his girlfriend of 9 years in a very romantic ceremony on the sunny island of Ibiza on that day.
Not only will this be my first holiday for in 8 years, it's also a very special event in this mums life and I want to look good for him but also for myself.

I started my weight loss campaign in June of this year by joining our local slimming world class.
My Aunt is also supporting me by joining class at the same time, she has very little to lose compared to my century!

So I'll be back here later in the day to update you on my weigh in result, which I fear will be a gain after a very naughty bank holiday weekend.

See you later.

Sue xx

As suspected, a gain of 1.5lb.

I've pledged a 5lb loss this week, so watch this space for updates.

But a 3.5lb loss will get me my 2 stone shiny:D

I love to make skinny lattes using my 950ml unsweetened almond milk HEXA

Since discovering Beanies flavoured coffee they taste totally decadent.

Sometimes make iced coffee too.

Why do we allow ourselves to be scuppered?

I had a blissful afternoon clothes shopping in Evans, Marks and Sparks, Next and I also bought myself some new make up and stuff in Boots It was so nice to be able to actually try on a size 20 and for it to fit as it's only ten short weeks ago that I was squeezing myself into size 24's, I was probably a 26 to be honest.

Anyway, I was planning to have a couple of slim line tonics, a natter with family that I hadn't seen in years and then a sober drive home.................

I had planned to drive to the family get together at our local pub but my cousin Paul phoned to say that he would be providing transport, oh heck.
Why oh why did I allow myself to be talked into having a drink? I was drinking dry white wine and soda, but my family just do not take no for an answer and I lost count at 7!
So syns for the day, I'm 'over guestimating' were probably in the region of 50.

Now then, I would usually raid the cupboards for naughtiness after a night out but I still had loads of stir fry and fried rice waiting for me at home, so I pigged out on that instead, virtuous or what.
I'm still on plan though after saving my syns up since weigh in on Wednesday but I wanted to have a total syn free week and have a super duper loss, never mind eh'

Onwards and downwards

Just had a late'ish breakfast and I can't begin to tell you just how nice that omelette was. A really good mix of complimenting flavours.
I'm going to ask my son to show me how to upload photos on here, I can't wait to show you what my meals look like.

It still amazes me that we can eat so well and still continue to lose weight.

I can also upload a 'before' photo of when I started my journey to lose this 100lbs. Best not allow the very young or anyone of a nervous disposition to see it though LOL

Hi cokkieinblueboots

Almond milk is quite 'watery' like skimmed milk but almond milk tastes completely different. You may have to use quite a bit depending how strong you take your tea of coffee.
I love to make iced coffees with the Beanies flavoured coffees which by the way are syn free. My favourite one at the moment is Irish coffee flavour which I blitz with almond milk and a dollop of Muller toffee yogurt, ice a and a small piece of banana to thicken it slightly....lovely

6 September

Another Green day today

I much prefer the freedom of Green days. I was vegetarian for 20 years, vegan for most of that time and never had a problem with my weight. I find it quite easy to throw green meals together.

I'm quite sure that if I could be as disciplined as I was then I doubt that I would have that much of a weight problem. Sometimes though I just have to have some animal protein, my GP puts it down to the anaemia. I have problems with my Vit B12 levels and have to have top up injections every three months now.
Then again, if I had not stopped my 20 a day habit I wouldn't be weighty either!!

Any way enough of that

HEXA
1 950ml almond milk. Using most of it to make some rice pudding
2 5 light laughing cow

HEXB
1 2 slices of wholemeal bread
2 Another 2 slices

Breakfast

3 egg omelette with courgette, onion, mushrooms and tinned tomatoes

Lunch
Jacket potato with quorn chilli, salad of lettuce, red onion, peppers, cucumber, tomato
Apple and orange

Supper

4 slices of toast 2 HEXB topped with cheese triangles HEXA baked beans, mushrooms, 2 Linda McCartney sausages with rosemary, dry fried onions.
Nectarine, orange and grapes
Slimming world syn free rice pudding with toffee muller

2lt water and teas and coffees with almond milk HEXA

Scrub supper!!!!
I spent most of the day painting my newly plastered bedroom walls and ceiling, I think I should get my body magic silver for that alone!!!!!!

Friday is take-away-day in our house, always has been. So after driving eldest to dominos to collect his mammoth meal and also picking up my elderly mothers fish and chip supper from Whitby's (its the name of a chain of fish bars) I was left with a house full of delicious aromas.

My supper then consisted of 3 packets of walkers ready salted crisps and a couple of large whiskey's and lemonade.

I'll be a devil and instead of syning the crisps I'm going to replace them for my supper.........oh I know it's naughty and I should syn them but it makes me feel better doing it this way.

I will syn the whiskey's though at 20 syns for the two

So 71.5 syns remaining

I'm a vey naughty, naughty girl.
