    Hey everyone :)

    I started SW on March 1st this year and have lost 12lb so far but I still have just over 2 stone to reach my target.

    I'm doing the Easy Extra plan which I find great although I might try a few red and green days along the way!

    Easter is a bit of a struggle - I have two little ones there is chocolate everywhere!! I love chocolate a bit too much ;-)

    Good luck to everyone on losing weight! I would love to be happy with my holiday photos this year rather than looking like a blimp :-(

    Yesterdays food:

    Breakfast: muller yoghurt and apple

    Lunch: mugshot and 2 x ryvita with light laughing cow ( half HE B and half HE A )

    Dinner: Lean roast beef, roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips (done in fry light), gravy (2 syns)

    Snacks: low fat alpen bar ( half HE B )
    Kit Kat (5.5syns)
    2 slices of packet ham
    2 x mini eggs ( I'm guessing 3 syns?? )

    Plus NAS orange juice and diet coke to drink

    Total syns: 10.5

    I need to stop snacking so much!

    Hi Hun,

    Here to subscribe, well done on your weight loss so far. Is this the first time you have done SW? I bet its hard having the chocolate around. Thankfully my little one is only 5.5 months old, so no chocolate yet. :)

    Your food sounds delish, can't beat homemade burgers, I prefer them to shop brought ones.

    I have found snacking more, gives me better weight losses.

    Hope you have had a great easter.

    Hey Tinks* and MissBecks!!

    Aw thank you for the lovely words :) :)

    Yeah this is my first time with SW - I wish I had joined years ago! It's so simple and I'm never hungry. I used to always do Scottish Slimmers but I would get so far and get fed up of being hungry and put all the weight and more back on - totally endless!!!!

    Have you guys got food diaries? I hope mine helps me to keep track!

    Il update my found later tonight x x x

    It's my 2nd time and I do love it, as you can eat normal food. I love my food lol. I stopped last time as I went in holiday then got pregnant. This will be our year! :)

    That's the good thing about SW you can eat lots and it doesn't feel like a proper diet, compared to others around.

    Yeah I have, it's called flab to fab.

    Hope you have had a good day x

If I lose weight I'm treating myself to a creme egg; although I'm not too hopeful as I went spectacularly off plan on Saturday night when I went out for a meal :-( il let you know how I get on!
