Emma's no more bad days diary

I am quite new here and I think the site is great. I have previously lost weight on slimming world (3 stone) and at first it normally falls off. A few years on it has all gone back on.
This time things do not seem to be happening as before and I am really struggling to get anything off.
I am hoping by putting my dairy on here it might help highlight if I am getting anything really wrong. Also it helps to get some support from all the friendly people on here as I doing it on my own as I can't get to class due to work committments.
I will start with posting my diary today but weigh in is on Mondays.
Let's hope it works.

Friday 17th June

Back again. I have just realised I might have made a mistake with bread. I have been allowing 2 slices wm bread from 800g loaf as one of my b healthy options but I believe it should have been 400G Loaf. I am hoping this is the reason that I have not lost weight as quick as I normally do.
Just did my big shop a brought a 400g loaf am just put it down as an error.

Hi. Good luck to you.

I have also previously lost weight with Slimming world but had to give up class due to my husbands work commitments. I am finding it a real struggle to stick to anything without that group support.

Have just booked to go to Florida at the end of March 2012 and need to lose 3st overall and hopefully 2st before we go.

I find that following Extra Easy makes for a slower weight loss than red and green days (although it is easier). I have been doing red / green Monday to Friday and then Extra Easy at weekends to allow for meals out, Sunday lunch etc. Also found that checking syns regularly helps as some of the syn values (even from as recently as January) have changed.
Hi Nicola

I am doing Slimming world at home without class which is difficult but I think by posting on here I do have to be honest with what I am eating.

This site is really good for motivation. I am struggling with the fact that the weight is not coming off anyway near as much as it used too.

Florida will be great motivation. I went a few years ago and really loved it. The only problem I found was the heat because we went in June and it was very humid also it involved alot of walking.

Good luck with your diet.

I have had problems with syns changing didn't realise that the sins in Quorn sausages had changed until last week and I have eaten loads of them.
Neither did I - I have bought some today, thought they were still free!!!
I have joined online again today after a few weeks of on and off days and losing then gaining weight (I am still the same weight!). Hoping the online food diary will keep me on track. Have pulled out my 2 year back catalogue of magazines (so glad I kept them!) and am going through them for recipes and ideas. Have stuck a big sign on my fridge that says 'Nothing tastes as good as slim feels'

Going to sort out my profile and ticker on here and try to keep coming back for a motivational top up. My hubby works away so danger zone for me comes when the kids are in bed and I am bored.
Hi Nic

Hope that you are going ok.
I am at my worst in the evenings and bored and stressful times. It seems easier to half that odd glass of wine, chocolate bar or piece of cake. The bit that gets me is that it is no hunger. Never mind onwards and downwards.
Today has been a hard day but I think I have been okay. The stress of work and children why do they always come together.
B- 2 wm toast & 1 LCL Cheese HB & (1s)

sausages & 1 scrambled egg (2s)
L- leftover bolognase sauce
D- chicken & sw BBQ sauce with new pots & asphargus
