Edit- 26/06/14

So changed my diary title- eek!- very excited that I am expecting my 3rd LO sometime around Christmas ! I have been on sw for the past 3.5 years since having my first and I'm hoping now that I am approaching the end of the first trimester (and all the nausea that brings...) that I can try and get on track and keep any gains down. I did sw on and off through my second preg (mostly off ;)) but I do think sw helps me eat the healthiest diet I can.


Hope you'll all help me along the way! x


Re-start Diary

I’ve decided to re-start sw, as i’ve done well on it in the past! I haven’t put much on since I stopped, maybe 2lbs but I don’t want it creeping back on again....

Oh and I’m vegetarian so I’ll always be doing green days.

Over my syns today, only by a little so not too bad. It could’ve been a lot worse so I won’t beat myself up over it!

So, bolognese is in the slow cooker and smells delicious. I've packed plenty of veg in there to up my superfree. Does anyone know the syns in dairylea light triangles? I think I will syn these and save my hea for a latte tonight when I'm out. Then I a have a heb of cheddar with my dinner or a couple of alpen lights. I have heard mention of lemon drizzle flavour so I'm on the lookout tonight for them!

Weigh In Day

SoI weighed in this korning. Last Sunday I was 133.8 lbs. This morning I was......


129.8 lbs!!!!! :eek:

That's 4 lbs in one week.

I am chuffed but slightly dubious lol. Really didn't think I would lose anything like that, especially when I'm not aiming to lose that much. I definitely noticed the difference in my clothes from even the middle of the week. Jeans that had been getting a little ahem, snug, were fitting properly again. But anyway time will tell, it could be a bit of a fluke and next week is * week. But this has def given me a bit of motivation!

Well, I'm just getting round to updating my weigh inor yesterday morning now...

127.8 so 2lbs off!! I am well pleased with this, for some reason the weight is coming off well and I'm getting as good a loss the past two weeks as when I was at my heaviest and going to class!

But, of course yesterday was my cheat day... I will update my shameful day's grazing later. Damage limitation time!

Yesterdays List of Shame

Pain au Chocolate

Small Dominos Pizza
Garlic bread
Walkers big bag of s&v crisps

God knows how many syns......

Still back on track today again, menu to be updated shortly

Had a lovely day with my boys though, although we are all a bit under the weather. Mother's day was always going to be my cheat day but the list above is excessive, and shameful when you see it in black and white. However, I have been good for the most part and everyone has the odd bad day. Just so long as it is only the odd day!

I have to say after yesterday's excesses I feel a little rough today. I didn't sleep well and am so sluggish- that'll teach me to overindulge. I definitely notice the difference when I'm eating proper food; more energy etc. No problem so far getting back on plan today which is a good sign, normally I would be off track for days.
