Diary of a frustrated yo-yoer!!!?


Silver Member
I really REALLY need to lose this weight. I've been faffing about since xmas, starting a different diet every week instead of sticking to SW. I'm a slow loser and have to accept that!!!!! I'm doing this from home at present but may return to class if I get my head in gear!!!

Maybe a focused food diary will help! I'd really like to lose half a stone by 26th April as I'm going on hols to Lanzarote for a week. Mind u my last escapade with SW saw me losing only 6lbs in 6 weeks but I wasn't doing any exercise at that time so I'm trying to do even a half hour walk most days and Zumba on a Tuesday night. So here's hoping........

I'm going to mix up the plans as much as I can to see if it helps


Breakfast - 57gms wholemeal bread (hexb), beans, 3 bacon medallions, apple

Lunch - chicken breast marinated in garlic (2syns), salad, shape yoghurt, 28gms cheddar (hexa)

Dinner - chicken leg, stirfried with onion, pepper and mushroom, sugar snap peas fajita seasoning, (2.5syns), wholegrain rice, some celeriac chips, frozen berries with ff fromage frais. 8 olives (1 syn)
3 cups of coffee with skimmed milk (2syns)
Curlywurly - 6syns
Banana, grapes

Total Syns - 13.5

Half hour brisk walk
