    Hi everyone

    It's my first day and it goes as follows.

    HE= skimmed milk
    HE= 30g reduced fat cheddar

    Banana & apple

    Cooked pasta with chopped tomatoes with mixed herbs

    Fat free yogurt

    Chicken breast oven cooked with onion, pasta and chopped tomatoes! I'm very full and perhaps had too much pasta?!

    I'm now needing a yogurt or a little something sweet! :)

    Hey! Just wanted to point out that you get 30g normal cheddar as a healthy extra. If you're using reduced fat cheddar you get 40g, so you could be conning yourself out of 10g here ;)

    However, I did notice that it appears you're having two Healthy Extra A choices, rather than an A and a B. Two lots of calcium (milk and cheese), rather than a calcium option and a fibre option, i.e. bread or cereal, etc. On Extra Easy you should chose one of each, it is all explained in the books and online. Hope this helps!

    :welcome: weim01 and good luck with your SW journey! You are off to a great start :clap:

    It's always a little confusing when you begin organising your eating plan the SW way and I agree with Princess_Stevie, you appear to have 2 Healthy Extra 'A' portions.
    If you are following Extra Easy then her advice is sound :)

    Hope you don't mind, but I also notice that you haven't *quite* managed a 5-a-day with your fruit and vegetables (banana, apple, tomatoes and onion).
    Fruit and vegetables are your "Super Free" foods and it is recommended that they should fill 1/3rd of your plate with Free foods filling the remaining 2/3rds.

    My DH is very, very fussy when it comes to vegetables and, even though he isn't following SW, he is having to endure whatever *I* dish up (because I am following SW :giggle: ).
    To "up" his intake of vegetables, I serve a bowl of side salad alongside his dinner plate - he feels rather special now ;) :giggle:
    He doesn't like many salad veg. so it's mainly a selection of shredded lettuce, cucumber, raw mushroom, cooked beetroot, sweet corn and pickled onions (in one combination or another) maybe some grated carrot if I can sneak it in before he notices :whistle: .

    Do you have particular vegetables you enjoy more than others that you could mix into a bowl of side salad to increase your intake?

    That's a good idea I do feel like maybe I'm eating too much pasta!

    I am going shopping today! So before I go I shall have a look at recipe ideas.

    I like most veg but I found it hard to add any extra to the pasta as I only had broccoli so I don't think that would go very well!

    I think perhaps I should syn any extra milk that I have for tea & coffee?

    And that way I can still have cereal?

    You can still have cereal as your Healthy Extra B in the morning - I have 30g of bran flakes for mine :) how are you getting on?

    So I had my first weigh in not great 1lb on! I have has 2 x works meals which were unavoidable.

    This week is a new week I must stick to the book. How's your week been?

    1lb on isn't the end of the world - you have reflected on it and can see where it may have come from :bighug:

    Good luck this week weim :)

    Exactly, 1lb on isn't the worst thing in the world and at least you know where you have strayed a bit. It's so much worst when you don't know what you've done wrong! My week so far has been very naughty as I have been away for the last few days, but lots of free/super free until Wednesday and as little syns as possible to try and get a little loss. Preparing myself to stay the same, but definitely don't want to put on.
