Weigh in did not go well!
Weighed in at 1 pound UP - (should have expected a gain due to naughty tea and alcohol Friday however when I ad a sneaky weigh in Friday morning I had lost another 3 pound at that point so thought I might have gotten away with a pound off or sts. To the extent of disbelief where I ignored it and got weighed again ties morning - still one pound on! Time to stop being childish, strop over and carry on!
Need to focus on still having lost 6 pound in total this month abs hopefully next Monday getting a good result
Plus I may have caved in to good food on Friday but at least I didn't smoke ;) 24 days ;)
Back to the diary then!

Monday 23rd Jan Food - still RED!
B - ready Brek (b) s sk milk (a)
Snack - banana
Late lunch - 3 x whlml (b & 3 syns)
3 x LCL (a) wafer ham, 3 eggs
Walkers baked crisps (5 syns)
Mullerlight, 2 x kiwis
T - stewed steak, cauliflower, broccoli
Late snack grapes, alpen light (3 syns)

(then a bag of space raiders 5 syns due to sulking about the gain!)

Syns - 16, 2 hexa, 2 hexb

Tuesday - planning food for next fee days to keep on track and avoid sulking putting me off!

B - bran flakes (b). S sk milk (a)
Snack banana
D - Iceland beef in gravy (free)
Steamed bag of veg
T - omelette - spinach, 3 egg, mushroom, 2 peppers, ham, 3 x LCL

Late snacks if needed - grapes, 2 alpen bars (hexb)
No syns - if desperate for snack watching shameless then bag of walkers light!

Wednesday is planned also, will be planning one day ahead for rest of week to see if it makes a difference.....
In the plan is ........
* eating less bread as I know thus never helps me!
* less fruit as sometimes slows loss on me
* less crisps
* more fish as has previously seemed to increase losses when eaten more
* drink more water


Gold Member
Although after all that sulking I should say am pleased to see not only having lost 6 pounds in 24 days the inch loss is starting to show......
1" off waist, 2" off hips, 2" off back so no sulking really required! Measurements will keep me happily on plan until next weigh in - stuff the scales ;)
