well, I've eaten loads more than you today. I think yours looks fine!
.

:D:D:D

I think I am just struggling to get my head around eating so much. :eek:

SW is SO different to CD and WW.

If I eat like this and loose weight I am going to be so gobsmacked next week at WI!

Thats looks perfect. I know it looks like you're eating a lot but if you look all you have syn wise is Maltesers. The rest if healthy fruits, vegetables, grains and pulses. I am having this battle with my bf at the m,oment because he says that i can't lose weight when I am eating this much but I promise you it can and does happen. Good luck.

I know I keep going on about it and feel like a stuck record, but just feeling so skeptical that this is going to work. I just cant get my head around that can eat so much food and will loose some weight.

Dont get me wrong I am ENJOYING eating it all at moment, but there a 'nagging doubt' in the back of my mind that surely 'portion control' has got to start kicking in at some point! :confused:

At the moment I am trying to eat 3 meals a day with healthy snacks (apart from the small chocolate fix :D). But have noticed my portions are getting bigger and bigger and I am only on day 3. Eg: today I am having for lunch a big portion of veggie chilli with some spagetti. Normally it would be a sarnie, salad or soup. For me to be sitting down eating this chilli and spagetti at lunchtime is so different after all these years of trying to apply WW.

This meal is going to leave me full, and I know from experience that by teatime I wont be feeling 'hungry'. HOWEVER, because I have all these wonderful ingredients to play with, even though not hungry I could easily sit down to eating another massive meal..because its FREE! and not because I am hungry, and it just feel so wrong!

I just feel I should be implimenting some sort of 'control' over the portions :eek:

I know I am only just getting into SW, and perhaps when you first start there is an element of...whooohoooo look at all this food that you can eat and you go a bit bonkers and then settle down to more realistic sized portions when the novilty of it all wears off. Has anyone else kind of done this or felt this way ??

Dont know whether am making sense to anyone else or just sounds like am rambling, as not sure if getting the point across that I am trying to. :confused:

Hope it does and it doenst sound like am a nutter . :D

I felt exactly the same as you. Because it was free I ate it whether I was hungry or not. I voiced my concerns at my last meeting and was told to just carry on, and I have been losing every week.

You don't look like you are eating too much at all. Just remember to drink water with your meals, and eat slowly, that way you give your stomach time to tell your brain that it's had enough!

I've been on SW years and vary, sometimes I don't eat much, but today for example, I had a pasta n' sauce, and was still hungry so I had 6 cracker breads (1B) and cottage cheese.

Previously I've found the more I eat - the more I lose!

Your menus sound so delicious I'm going to nick some of your ideas! I've never even heard of the chickpeas/soya beans in tomato sauce- are they nice?

You should see my plates, they are like little mountains. :eek::D

I do manage to drink a fair bit of water and loads of herbal teas. :)

There have been a few occasions where I have been eating and i have thought...'phew! thats it I am full' and have wanted to stop... but havent :p:eek: and have finished whats on my plate ((old habits)).

I think its time for me to start listening to my body and hearing what its saying ((which will be a first for me :D)) and 'stop' when I have that full feeling rather than going onto 'stuffed' :eek:

I think thats the thing with this way of eating... the foods I am eating as so filling I just have to be more sensible. :)

I have never been on a diet (sorry healthy way of eating) like this before. !

Hi, I hadnt seen them before. I found them in Morrisons last week and thought...oh will try them for a change!

My SW leader said they were free on Green. I havent looked them up as think they are newish ??

I enjoyed the Soya been more as they had a sweet chilli sauce.

Either would be yummy on a jacket spud. :D.

I intend to buy some more when go shopping.

Hehe, I know, If I cook potato wedges I'll use about 5 medium potatoes, thinking I'll make enough to stick in the fridge for later - though I still always go back for seconds and eat the whole lot!!!

Sound yum but my boyfriend has banned me from eating chickpeas - parrp!! :eek:
:D:D:D:D:D KNOW exactly what you mean.

Last nights tea was supposed to be Quorn in a sauce, but hadnt got enough for both of us so I had chickpeas instead of the Quorn. No way do I dare to feed them to hubby.... :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:, its not worth the gassing! :D
