    I've been doing slimming world since the end of March and have lost 17lbs. I've just come back from a 4 week holiday in Thailand and I'm finding it hard to get motivated again. I'm hoping that keeping the diary will help.

    Monday 9th August (extra easy day)

    Breakfeast
    Weetabix (HXB)
    Semi- skimmed Milk (HXA)
    Bannana (0 syns)
    Apple (0 syns)

    Lunch
    Spicy Sweet and Sour Mugshot (0 syns)
    Strawberry Mullerlight (0 syns)
    Strawberries (0 syns)
    Orange (0 syns)

    Dinner
    Steak - fat removed (0 syns)
    Jacket Potato (0 syns)
    Salad - lettuce, cucumber, pickled onions and celery (0 syns)
    Hard Boiled egg (0 syns)

    Curly Wurly (6 syns)
    Mullerlight cherry layer yogurt (2 syns)
    Squirty Cream (1 syns)

    Total Syns 11

    It was WI this evening and I'd mantained which was good as I'd had fish and chips at the weekend and few other naughty things too! Need to have a good week this week though

    Hi ecw199.

    Congratulations on your weightloss - and well done for getting right back on track after your hol.

    Hope you're having a good day x

    Thanks for the encouragement Sarah. Thailand was amazing and I was really motivated before I went to lose weight. I lost 20.5 lbs before I went and then put 9lbs on whilst we were away :eek:.

    I don't regret not dieting on holiday because we had a fabulous time and a big part of that was eating wonderful food.
    In the four weeks since I got back I've tried to get straight back on it and I've lost 5.5lbs but I'm finding it harder now I don't have the holiday as motivation. Didn't lose anything last week and I was pleased to maintain as I'd had a few naughty things but I really want to do better - hence this diary. :)

    I know what you mean about motivation - I'm going to Mexico in May so that's my motivation - I will be a size 12!!
    I don't think 9lbs is so bad for 4 weeks away and you're totally right - there's no way you could stick to plan while being there - the food is part of the experience!
    Guess you just need to find something else to be your motivation...

    Well done on your losses before you went away - that's amazing so you can definately do it again!

    Yesterday was another good day - keeping this diary really seems to be helping! Didn't have enough syns though, this wasn't deliberate -just the way it worked out. At my meeting they say it's important to eat all your syns, so I might have a few extra today. :)

    I'm going to my dad's for dinner tonight and I've told him I'd like chicken and rice, he tends to make everything fattening.

    I would love to go to Mexico :) Having a big holiday like that is great motivation and you'll feel so much better out there if you feel more comfortable with yourself, especially in the heat!

    You're right though I do need to find something new to motivate me, even if it's just something small.

    Thanks - I can't wait!!

    And I definately think having a goal is key - it's kept me on track and made sure my head's in the right place (never truly felt this before this year)

    Hope your dad cooks you something nice (and healthy!) for tea!!

    My dad turned out to be really supportive last night and cooked me a syn free dinner which was great. Unfortunately he then gave me a glass of prune juice which I drank without thinking, didn't really like and then when I looked it up later was 4 syns:eek:. I knew it woud have a syn value but not that much.

    So that took me over my syns for the day though I'm still okay for the weekly syns. I'll have to be more careful in future :(

    Yeah, you have to be careful with fruit juice and tinned/cooked fruit. I knew it would have a syn but not that much. Keeping a food diary will definately help you to lose more. It's easy to go over your syns without realising it. If you have any questions about extra easy I'd be happy to try and answer them :)

    Thanks Jane for the encouragement. Unfortuantely I STS this week and I'm pretty gutted. I feel like I've done everything right and I can't believe I didn't lose anything. I know that I just have to keep on going, this has happened before and I usually get a good weight lose the week after but I'm feeling a bit down at the moment. :sigh:
