Sunday - Day 19

A so-so day, have managed to survive eating out at the Thai buffet restaurant, which was a real accomplishment yet feel tonight as if my weightloss has been slow and I'm not feeling much different, bit cheesed off really grrrr :break_diet: ...will have to see what Wednesday's weigh in shows up..

well here goes for my Sunday accumulation of culinary delights...

B- made up the pasta quiche using a packet of batchelors pasta n sauce, a tub of cottage cheese, 3 eggs and 1 quarter of the quark tub (free). Was really surprised, it was gorgeous... ate 1/2 for breakfast. Had a slice of melon too.

L- Chinese/Thai Buffet
Had 6 sushi slices (all with just the basics in - a nibble of salmon, rice, veg wrapped in seaweed) Haven't a clue what these would be but have to be just a few syns surely... (guessing 2 syns??)
Had a mix from the tepanyaki bar of ..
tiny slithers of salmon (HEb), noodles, and veg ? the chef used a dab of oil.. (2 syns?) but thats about it.
1 mini veg spring roll (it was teeny 2 syns) and a fruit salad for dessert!! 6 Syns?

S- Other half of quiche- and cold it tasted even better.
A few homemade crisps and glass of wine last one til weekend (5 syns)

Hope I am feeling a bit more positive in the morning:sigh:, hoping my jeans will start feeling looser!! x fingers crossed.

Guessing 11 syns for the day
Stop Picking!

Todays order was to stop picking, having read through other members diaries, I have realised I am greedy and am taking the 'eat loads' motto too literally.. no wonder my weight loss results are crappy... hopefully as of tomorrow I'll be more active, so that will hopefully get things burning..

So here goes for today..

B - 2 slices of nimble (1HEb) with 2 low laughing cow cheeses (1/2 HEa) and marmite.. sounded nice but just gave me wicked heartburn!!! Slice of melon.

L - 4 plums, some blueberries in a mullerlight yog.

D- 1/4 free quiche with sprinkling of cheese (HEa). Melon slice.

S- 3 Ryvita (HEb) and 2 Laughing cows (1/2 HEa)
1 snack maltezers (not yet had!) 5 Syns

Total daily Syns 5


Just follow the plan
I would have ate all that quiche lol
Lol Flipflop, would have done, but made the other half for hubs and daughter and they had lashings of cheese ontop (drooling at the mouth!!) and needed the other quarter to nibble today.. but have to agree it is bloomin gorgeous!!

Flip, Have you ever tried making it up with a sliced potato base? I think I may have to have a go...


Just follow the plan
Yeah, thats the way I used to make it 2 years ago when I did SW before. Takes a bit of cooking to get the potato soft though.

Well done on your 1lb loss x

Whats a hotshot Dee?
Morning Flip, How are things going for you?
Hotshots are noodly (is that the correct term lol) cup a soups, and as far as I am aware, are free. I bought mine from Tesco in 2 flavours Tomato and sweet and sour I think the other one is. Quite nice and quick to make.

Thanks for my well done too Flip, I know a pound a week is not a lot but it is coming off steadily.. I am back at Uni and begin a placement next week (so will be in full time work for 3 months) so getting busy should really help get things moving weightwise (fingers crossed.. or I'll be so stressed.. I will comfort eat my way through it lol) Hope your day goes well x


Just follow the plan
Oh I see! I thought it was one of those but theyre called mugshots so I thought maybe I was missing out on a hotshot lol.

I only lost a lb this week too but I dont mind and like you say its slow but steady.
