    Hi all

    Thought I would join in and get myself a minimins food diary thread going. I keep a diary at home & a spreadsheet at work so another can't hurt :) I really wanted to be halfway to target by the end of the year (21stone wanting to get to about 12stone!) but it's coming off slowly.. losing motivation & then comfort eating doesn't help. But I feel really positive thanks to this site and am hoping a food diary that everyone can see will motivate me some more. Maybe some newbies can steal my dinner ideas too :D

    Just going to start with yesterday which was my first 100% day since about November.....


    Weds 10th - extra easy

    breakfast: coffee (milk part HEA) & sweetener (not exactly brekkie but wasn't hungry)
    lunch: chicken pasta salad with extra light mayo (1 syn), shape yoghurt, satsuma, banana
    dinner: risotto with courgette, leek, spring onion & 14g parmesan (3 syns)
    snacks: weetabix (HEB) + milk (rest of HEA), wotsits (5 syns)

    Total syns: 9 / 15

    Saturday 13th - extra easy

    breakfast: beans on toast (HEB)
    lunch: leftover pasta salad (0.5 syns)
    dinner: marshalls macaroni cheese in a box (1 syn for the marge, milk HEA)
    snacks: single twix (5 syns), jaffa cake bar (6.5 syns), curly wurly (5 syns), VLF yoghurt with fruit

    Total syns: 18 / 15 .. so too many but figured I had enough "saved" from the past few days to have the jaffa cake bar which was unforeseen + my mum's fault lol.

    Also this is the first day I had some green tea so we'll see if it helps me lose more.

    Sunday 14th - extra easy

    Valentines Day today so going out for a meal. Using flexi syns and limiting myself to 60 syns! Is that too many??

    brunch: SW pancakes (5.5 syns), lean bacon, quorn sausages, green tea
    dinner: 6 course meal - guessing 40 syns*
    snacks: green tea, half pack of fun size cadbury buttons (3 syns?)

    * Valentines Dinner @ Khublai Khans Mongolian BBQ restaurant
    1st course: kangaroo enchiladas = 1 tortilla wrap, kangaroo meat, a sprinkle of cheddar + some very yummy full fat mayo
    2nd course: buffet meal using 2tbsp BBQ sauce
    3rd course: buffet meal using 2tbsp BBQ sauce, 2tbsp olive oil
    4th course: buffet meal using 2tbsp sweet + sour sauce, 2tbsp garlic oil
    5th course: buffet meal using 2tbsp oil - did not finish this course
    6th course: homemade banoffee pie (small portion) + a mocha (milk is HEA?)

    Hoping the above only used around 40 syns, probably a lot more but the only synful things were what I've listed, without asking the staff about every single thing I was eating. I limited myself to 60 syns so that should pick up any extra syns I haven't counted.

    Tues 16th - Red


    breakfast: coffee (milk part HEA), magic porridge (HEB), more green tea..!

    dinner: another roast chicken sandwich (bread 6 syns), extra light mayo (0.5 syn), SW pancakes (5 syns + rest of HEA), syrup (guess 3 syns?)
    snacks: took one bite out a curly wurly (1 syn?)

    Today was rubbish, I was too tired to make dinner so we had pancakes + a sandwich instead of the stroganoff I'd planned. Should've had a lot more veg + a proper dinner :(

    breakfast: nothing:(
    lunch: shape yoghurt

    OK, so I didn't fill this out on Saturday night and have now forgotten everything I ate. I went over my syns by a lot though. Then on Sunday I kept eating, I stayed good for the first half of the day but then the evening came and I lost it. So the weekend was pretty bad, new start on Monday - definitely.

    Weds 24th - extra easy

    This morning was WI and I've gained 1.5lbs. Just read through this diary and no wonder! Been about a week since I ate properly. Keep going over syns, one day I didn't even have any syns, and it just shows you what damage 2 or 3 extra syns a day can do! Imagine if I was still having 20 syns a day every day...

    breakfast: magic porridge (HEB) with banana & custard muller, green tea, coffee (milk part HEA)
    lunch: chicken pasta salad (mayo 1 syn), shape yoghurt, green tea
    dinner: marshalls macaroni (milk HEA)
    snacks: wotsits (5 syns), small pack of buttons (3 syns?), satsuma, shape yoghurt

    Total syns: 9 / 15

    Weds 3rd - extra easy

    This morning was WI and I lost 1lbs.

    Today at work I went to a meeting at another site, lunch was provided so the lunch I planned to have is still sitting in the fridge! I had no idea it would be provided and I didn’t even get to choose my own food. So this is how it looks now.

    Breakfast: banana, coffee (milk 1 syn)
    Lunch: potato + leek soup (not even sure how much of it I had so 3 syns I’m guessing) then I had 1 sandwich (bread HEB) one triangle made up of full fat mayo (5 syns!!) and prawns + smoked salmon, the other half was mayo (5 syns again) and chicken + onion. And I ordered a diet pepsi but I’m convinced I got a full fat pepsi! Not even sure of the syn value..
    Dinner: will be risotto
    Snacks: coffee with real sugar (1 syn), Mikados – not sure of syn value but I had about 5 of them!

    So pretty much a ruined day, thanks to my lovely work providing a lunch that was not diet friendly at all!!!
