Food diaries & thoughts

Ok so the first post will be a long one,
I’m now 30 single mum of a 3 year old terror had no energy no patience and was literally feeling deflated, stood on the scales at 19st3lb almost died! I think I was deluded as to what my weight actually was I was still squeezing myself into size 16 leggings and literally wearing nothing but leggings and tank tops. This is the second heaviest I’ve been and the heaviest in 4 years so time to change.
My aim is to get down to 12st7lb and can then judge from there if I can go further or not. So long as I can get back into a size 10/12 I will be happy.
I don’t want to be the fat mum at the school gates or the mum that can’t run around the park with her kids but I also don’t want to end up the skinny mum obsessed with every calorie so slimming world is my way forward. I am doing it exclusively from home as classes here don’t fit in with nursery/shifts and I struggle with child/puppy care.
I seriously need to boost my activity levels so starting from my first weigh in I will be attempting to walk with the dog at least 3miles 3 times a week while weeone is in nursery
I started on plan Wednesday 13/3 so will post food diaries from Wednesday to now here and my other thread solely for my weigh ins. As I am doing this exclusively from home so some syns etc I may ask for help with
So anyways here goes the start of changing my life forever

Went over my syns today probably didn’t need all the yoghurts but had family over for tea who were expecting puddings and all I had were yoghurts and fruit. I also didn’t realise the syns of the peanut butter so that will be getting binned today may invest in the pb2 or the peanut hottie instead. I didn’t drink as much water but did drink more coffee
Tomorrow will be my first roast without mealie not sure how I feel about that but it’s far to hard/high to syn it so not even going to bother making it
Onwards and upwards (well downwards on the scales)

At least I stopped at one.... have sat this afternoon and written out a meal plan for the next two weeks after going through cupboards and freezer and checking syns on everything!
Tomorrow I’ll be going for a looooong (long for me) walk with a friend and the dog looking to rack up around 12-15k by 1pm then once I’ve collected weeone from nursery it’s taking him to the park to play (tire him out) then home to make tea and housework so again more ‘body magic’ so to speak
Bring it on 😊
