Hi Suse.
Just reading your plan. Try and vary what you are eating for lunch, as you will really fed up of the same things all the time and there is so much more that you can have especially doing the EE plan. Also try and eat more fruit and veg, these are the "bulk" things that will fill you up more.
Another tip would be to not weigh yourself at home (easier said than done I know), but your determination to stick to the plan could be swayed by the results you see on your scales, especially if they show a gain.
Good luck with your weigh in tomorrow Hun and dont panic!!!
Have a look at the other food diaries to give you some ideas too, I've certainly picked up a thing or 2 having a browse!! Lol!

ok well i didnt have an options hot chocolate i had a horlicks light with 50ml milk...totally not realising id got the wrong thing and should have bought extra light, then found out what id just drank was 6 syns! taking the total to 13.5 today. least im not over 15 but not much hope for weigh in tomorrow. :-(
Plan for tomorrow:
Brekkie: mushrooms beans scrambled egg. coffee 1 syn.
Snack: Fruit
Dinner: jacket beans 20g moz cheese and low fat coleslaw (last day of this then having a change just using up whats left) 2 syns. yogurt.
Snack: fruit, slice bread with tom puree 1/2 syn and 20g moz and spring onion.
Tea: Morrisons eat smart chicken sweet and sour (1 syn correct me if im wrong but i think i saw somewhere this was right?) and stir fry veg.
Snack. Yogurt with tsp honey (1 syn), options with milk (3 syn), berries.
total syns for day: 8.5
ok had slice of toast instead of eggs for brekfast, bad mistake as now i dont have anything other than fruit or yogurt for afternoon and fruit never keeps me going all afternoon and im having yogurt twice already. nevermind. and the sweet and sour is 3.5 syns not 1. so might cut the coleslaw out from lunch so that would make 8.5 still if i dont have the tomato puree.

Had weigh in today, for my first week ive put a pound ON!
ok so i had a change of lunch, had mexican rice (2 syns) with salad and prawns and a muller light.

Just read someone elses diary and they had totted up the calorues just out of interest. now theres was 1200 for the day which is what i would say is a normal diet diet if that makes sense. However im just going to tot mine up and im pretty sure im gunna be way more. yup 2002 cals. no wonder im not losing, but i thought you could eat as much as you wanted on as long as its free and you keep to your HE and syns. not working for me... :confused:
Dont count calories Hun as its completely different with SW. Dont worry over the gain this week, it can be quite normal for a small gain and if you stick to plan, next week you will see a loss.
Just make sure you dont guesstimate your syn values or if something needs to be weighed, then weigh it accurately as this is when you could find that you are having a few more syns than you thought.
You can have up to 15 syns a day too, so you are definitely not going over!
If you have a chance, have a look at my diary, it should give you some ideas. I work from 8.00-5 Monday to Friday and I also have an evening job at least 2-3 nights a week (registered sitter) and I can still find the time to make meals even with a 3 year old and a Hubby to entertain! Lol.
ok last night i made some cous cous buns with muller light and splenda and dipped them in VLF natural yogurt, they were lush!

Ended up having some sort of tomatoey chicken thing with spices that my boyfriend made me (annoying cos i had my lunch planned and he wouldnt tell me if he put oil in it and looked at me as if to say dont be ungrateful ive made you lunch so dont moan) so i counted it as 2 syns anyway and it was really nice and just mainly tinned toms. there was only a bit of it and hes not a massive oil user so hopefully this will cover it. my tea was gorgeous ive taken a photo to put on the photos bit when i get round to it. plus my boyfriend has set me up a little gym upstairs so gunna actually get round to doing some exercise other than walking.
