    Hi everyone :)

    This is my second time doing Slimming World, the first time I think I only lasted a week! I just couldn't keep it up as I was eating everything around me. I spent a long time gearing myself up for loosing weight in 2014 and I booked a sun holiday last night for June so I can't put it off any longer!
    A bit about me- I'm from Ireland and I work as a support worker. I lost weight a couple of years ago and reached 10.7 stone. I maintained this for a while and was really happy and looked so much better. When I finished college I started piling on weight again and now I am (depressingly) back to the highest weight I was before of just over 12 stone.
    My aims are to get back to around 10 stone for my holiday in June. I'm going away for a week in Feb also so that's my short term goal! I'm a week on Slimming World so far and have lost a few pounds already. Some days I find it really hard to stick to as I love a lot of foods that are high in syns. At the moment I am using my syns weekly. I know some people say you shouldn't do this but it seems to work better for me so I'm going to continue to do it until I think it's affecting my losses!
    This week I'm going to aim to start exercising a lot more as I'm dying to speed up my losses and start working my way back down. Trying not to think about the fact I'm in the exact same place I was a couple of years ago...
    I'm going to post my food from my first week so any feedback would be really really really appreciated!

Glad I kept track of my syns and didn't do my usual where I think I've ruined my day so I might as well keep going and eat as much as I want. Didn't have enough superfree foods today need to keep on top of that!

    Feedback: Really happy with food choices today. Overall, felt I had an ok week. I think I need to be a bit stricter with what bread I'm eating as well as weighing cheese etc. The main thing I want to work on in the coming weeks is more exercise. I have a gym membership that I haven't been using at all! I think it'll really help my losses especially if I am going over my syns sometimes.

    Thursday 9th January (Week 2 Day 1)

    Breakfast- Banana. Beans and a sesame bagel.

    Lunch- Salad leaves, feta, tomato and ham

    Snack- Four cookies. Small bowl of boiled rice and homemade curry.

    Dinner- Mushroom soup (starter), Chicken burger with couple of chips (main), half a banoffi sundae (dessert)
    Drinks- One mojito and one chocolate martini

    As you can see I didn't syn today! I knew I was going out for dinner and decided to try and be on plan for the day but relax a bit at dinner time without going overboard. It kind of worked! Apart from the cookies I had in work :rolleyes: We were going for a three course meal, it was yum!
    Generally when I go out for dinner I feel like I've ruined my diet and never get back into it the next day but this time that didn't happen! I think this is a learning process. I'm definitely not being perfect but am trying to adapt new ways of eating so I can maintain my weight when I get to target. I think this is the first time I didn't eat loads during the day because I knew I wasn't technically following anything then have a huge dinner. I also think my appetite is starting to shrink a bit! :innocent0001:
