Trying to do this with 2 five year old boys and one 27 year old boy (friend) who all love their food is hard. I'm sick of being self conscious about my weight, and it's time to change as if I carry on god knows what I'll weigh by the time I'm 30!!! Please any help or guidance anyone can give me would be amazing! I don't have a bad diet normally I eat good home made food, just portion control is my issue.. And chocolate! :) thanks guy.

    Lean grilled bacon medallions (x2) - free
    Beans (free)
    Grilled mushroom (Superfree)
    Baked tomato (Superfree)
    X2 WW bread (hexB)

    350ml skimmed milk throughout day in tea. (hexA)

    x4 cups green tea

    Lunch : jacket potato (free)
    Prawns (free)
    x2 tbsp x light mayo (1syn)

    Looks good so far! Doing a diary is really helpful as you can see exactly what you've had and it forces you to be honest with yourself. I'm not sure I would have lost so much without it!

    I'm doing it from home too but have subscribed to the website so I can track syns and HEXs. I've also got some really accurate scales and haven't found any problems by not going to group. I don't think it's neccessary to pay for use of the site though as everyone is so helpful on here! Ii'm not sure I'm going to bother resubscribing tbh - but I will miss syns online/my app if I do!

    Chocolate Philadelphia (30g) = 4.5 syns

    I'd recommend weighing stuff out too just to make sure you don't go over on your HEXs and so you can accurately monitor your syn intake.

    Good luck and I look forward to reading your diary! :D

    I agree with all of the above Charl. Just keep at it, and weighing the HEX's. You're having a much better day than me, lol.

    Ate my first big bag of sweets in 2 months, so probably not going to have a good weigh-in. Thought it had all been going too well!

    Hi, welcome to minimins. :) Your food diary looks really good.

    I brought those mikardos. There so yummy and morish. I have a pack at work, to stop me going to the vending machines and buying a chocolate bar. As i thought that even if i eat lots of them its still less syns. I have the daim ones. Yummy. Saw they do white ones too. :D

    It's ok :) just don't carry on! I know once I've given in to one thing I just think screw it and go food crazy! Then get angry at myself. Sweets are good when you need it. Sometime :)) am sure it couldn't make tooooo much difference

    Well done. You're doing better than me. I start the mornings well, but by the evenings, need all the naughty stuff!
    Back to work tomorrow, though, and hopefully I'll stick to plan a little better.
