    Unfortunately I am at the wrong end of my 40's and there's nothing I can do about that :sigh: but I can change my weight. I have done the SW plan two times before and lost 3 stone each time but then I stopped going to class and piled it all back on plus some...I'm determined thats not going to happen this time. I want to be able to walk into any shop and find something that not only fits but I want to wear and feel good about the way I look.
    It has taken me longer to lose the weight this time and I have lost the plot a few times so my hope is by writing it all down in public it will help me stay on track. I have a family holiday booked for October half term and I want to go away and be confident in my swimming costume and not be shying away from the camera.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my diary and any help would be appreciated

    When I first started SW I did red and green days but over the last couple of weeks I have switched to EE as this seems to be better for long term commitment but I must admit there are times when I miss my 2 heb choices

    Breakfast: porridge - ( heb)
    coffee (Milk - hea)

    Lunch Jacket potato and beans with salad

    snack Activia 0% blueberry yogurt

    tea planning on sunshine pork (pork chops, new potato, tomato, garlic and rosemary)

    syns not sure yet

    I have been trying to do some new recipies this week. Had the sunshine pork for tea with lots of broccoli - very nice and tasty, followed by a 0% activia mrhubarb yogurt (1/2 syn)
    Now sat in front of the tv thinking about what I can have to eat now.....this is my 'bad' time :(

    lunch tuna salad

    tea will be chicken biryani bake when i get home from class

    Usually have a treat on a tue not sure what yet though....lastweek had fish finger butty and 3 pieces of cake :cry: so dreading the scales tonight although I have been quite good the rest of the week

    Good luck for weigh in. Let me know how you get on. I'm sure a fudge bar won't make much difference and you'll have done fab! I'm getting weighed in the morning eeeeekk!

    eurggghhh....so annoyed with myself. went completely off plan last night, got a chinese takeaway and once i started eating i couldn't stop, ate all the prawn crackers, mushroom fried rice and chicken blackbean sauce. Then I started on ben and jerrys icecream, brownies and cookies my daughter had bought. Life has been a bit stressful recently both my daughters are going through a hard time and as a single parent theres only me to help them through it, need to try and get my head back in the zone.

    Well I completely blew the whole weekend food wise....and didn't even enjoy it that much felt too guilty. Its weigh in tomorrow so not holding much hope :cry:I fell right back into my old coping mechanism, first sign of stress......eat.
    Trying to get back on track today, I am 7 lbs away from the lowest weight I have ever achieved with SW and every time I have got to that weight before I have stopped going to class and put it all back on. Worried now that I am losing focus again.

    Anyway today's menu was

    B - porridge with banana
    L - Jacket with beans and broccoli, muller yogurt, peach
    T - mushy pea curry and rice

    With all that beans and peas maybe I'll have got rid of all my excesses before weigh in ;)

    Put the weekend behind you, it's in the past now. No matter how guilty you feel or how mum you beat yourself up it won't change anything. Instead try to learn from it, what was your trigger? What got you to give in? Is there anything you can put in place to try and help you resist next time?

    Well I've well and truly fallen off the wagon :( Always find school holidays hard but completely lost all motivation this summer and unofficially have gained 9 lbs in 6 weeks. Back to work today and am trying to get back into the 'zone,' got a holiday to Tenerife at October half term so really need to get my ass in gear. Its so easy to slip into your old habits, for me that's sat in front of the tv with a treat or two or three....... and never a healthy option. Well wish me luck any support would be greatly appreciated.

    Breakfast: porridge (he b ), banana

    Lunch: pasta salad with tomato cuc pepper ham and ff vinegariette dressing

    (he a, milk)

    Tea: Salmon with ginger soy sauce, boiled new potatoes and carrots
    mullerlight yogurt

    Syns: not sure yet but will definitely need a snack tonight can't go cold turkey ;)

    ended up having a packet of walkers mighty light crisp for 5 1/2 syns
