I started the slimming world diet last Wednesday after realizing that over the last couple of years I've gained four stones that shouldn't be hanging around my waist.

I'm 5'8 and currently weigh 14 stones. My target weight is 10 stones so I have a long way to go.

I'll be joining a class at the end of February but at the moment I'm doing it at home with resources I find online and here on minim ins

So that I can track what i'm eating and hopefully get some feedback i'll be tracking my daily meals here

Monday 30th January

Breakfast -- 2 Weetabix with some semi skimmed milk
10am Break -- overnight oats made with fat free greek yoghurt and Aldi's frozen forest fruits
12pm Lunch -- 3 farmfoods fajita chicken fillets with pilau rice. and a satsuma orange. drank with green tea and a glass of water
3:30pm Afternoon Break -- Tesco's vegetable sushi (68g pack)
6:00pm -- Snack -- Satsuma
7:00pm Dinner -- 3 chicken breast fillets, baked beans, five new potatoes, and vegetable slices baked in the oven (carrot, courgette, potato, Onion, )

I also have some defrosted forest fruits / pineapple / mango for later if I get hungry to eat with fat free yoghurt.

I've prepared a big jar of overnight oats to last me a couple of days. Made with oats, fat free greek yoghurt, frozen forest fruits, mango and pineapple. .. (how long does overnight oats last in the fridge for? I was thinking about separating it out once its ready and taking it to work over a few days)

Am I doing this right and eating everything I should be?

Hi

I've been keeping a food diary all week, can anyone check it out and see if im doing this right as i won't be able to make it to a proper class until the middle of february
Hi Echo. :) I'm not sure exactly how much I can help as I don't eat any processed food so haven't a clue how many syns flavoured yogurts and branded foods are. :confused:

A couple of points I do pick up on:

1. Your dinners look good. You might need more "speed" veg, which is pretty much everything except potatoes, sweet potatoes, sweetcorn, parsnips, peas and all pulses/beans.
2. It looks like you're having two HeBs (healthy extra B's aka fibre) a day as weetabix and oats would count as a portion each. If you have both, one would have to be syn'd.

Those are the only two things that really jumped out at me. I'm assuming that you don't have the books if you haven't started group yet, which does make it hard. Once you have the books and are able to check syns for foods it will be LOTS easier. You'll probably find some of your yogurts are syned (some flavoured yogurts are, some aren't), also the sushi, sausages and either the weetabix or oats (on days when you have both).

Otherwise, it's looking good! :)
