    This will be hit and miss to start with so please feel free to butt in and comment, i willingly take constructive criticism and need all the help i can get. Nearly lost the will to carry on this last week so need to get back on track.

    And now, counting my food, if i can keep up with organising it.

    Here goes :D

    Today, Friday 26th July.

    Breakfast

    2 slices of toast (brown 800g) with 3 cheese triangles, coffee = HXa(3 triangles = 60% of allowance + 75 ml milk for coffee), HXb, extra slice of bread 4 syns.

    Mid morning drink

    Mocha, Kelloggs biscuit moment chocolate (3 spoons hot chocolate = 3 syns, 25 ml milk HXb, 100 ml milk 2 1/2 syns, biscuit 5 syns)

    Lunch

    Madras curry (homemade) boiled potatoes (creme fraiche 5 syns, all other ingredients Free)

    Dinner

    Chicken and pasta in sauce (homemade)
    Pudding (quark, mullerlight, strawberries, sweetener, meringue 3 syns)



    Wow, and there was me thinking i have hardly any syns, surprising when you start writing it down. And this is why i weigh on a Friday, i will be having a beer now as well. :D (nearest i can find to the brand i drink is 7 1/2 syns :cry:)

    So, HXa, done, HXb done, will make an effort tomorrow with the super and free foods, and clearly the syns (30 :cry:) are far to high. Shall make up for that after the weekend.

    Hi Daz, Good for you keeping going despite feeling a bit at odds with things.
    I find diaries are the best way to keep on track..as you say it's surprising how things add up.
    I am not doing the SW like yourself (tbh I don't understand it!)
    You are doing very well so keep up the good work..and by.the.way it's..

    Onwards and Downwards!!

    Im determined to get back to at least 12 st, although everywhere says i should actually be 10 st. Pfffft, cant see it. lol.

    I have never stopped having a beer, its not something i have a lot of now, not since the stroke. A lot different than before and when i was managing pubs. :D

    Daz you seem like you're good at working out the syns, but is it 4 syns for the extra slice of bread, I thought it was 3 & seeing as you're a tad over for today that 1 syn matters!!!!!

    I didn't think brown bread was a hXb? I may be wrong because I use an old directory but I thought it was only wholemeal or the WW brown danish that was hXb?

    Daz I also buy 800grm loaves as it works out cheaper, but I weigh the bread so it adds up to 60grms, it does pi$$ OH off a bit as there is often half a slice of bread in there but it saves on those extra odd syns, just a thought!

    Im happy to stick with my plan. The options on Slimming World site (just checked, again) are :-

    60g of any wholemeal bread
    1 slice wholemeal bread, any brand (800g sliced loaf)

    Obviously there are many other choices but we are only on about these. lol.
