Food Diary of a Good Girl (10 weeks til W-Day!) x x

Hello! :)

After a disappointing few weeks, culminating in last night's half lb disaster, decided to do this to keep me on the straight and narrow and also to maybe get some feedback from you lovely peeps :)

Have decided to stick with EE for one more week, have lost 2st 4.5lbs following it, so it must work, plus I've never tried Red or Green and they look a bit scary :(

I have 102 days til my holidays, so would definitely like another 14-17.5lbs off by then, which I don't think is undoable!!


Breakfast: Banana (Hate eating in the morning)

1.4m walk to work

Snack: Apple

Lunch: 2 x Wholemeal breads (B) Ham, Tomato, Flora Pro Activ Light (1) Fruit pot (Apples, Pineapple, Strawberries) Cherry Mullerlight

Snack: 2 x Tangerines

1.4m walk home from work

Dinner: Pork minute steaks, New potatoes, with a Ratatouille kind of thing (Tomatoes, Onions, Mushrooms) and Carrots

Generally use most of my syns in the evenings, and don't go over 10 a day...

Laters: 250ml semi skimmed milk (A), Options Vanilla (1.5) Caramel wafer biscuit thing (5)

Fluids: 4 or 5 x 500ml bottles of water, couple of glasses of no added sugar squash

Total syns: 7.5 x x

Hula princess in training
You're food diary looks good Tulip and Wow at the amount of exercise you're managing to do. I'm sure you'll be able to 14lbs before you're holiday :D

And Don't worry if you go over syns on one day because you can cut back syns wise over the next few days. Thats what SW is all about, control and healthy eating :)
Thanks for the message lovely :)

The exercise is quite a new thing, so I'm sure the novelty will wear off soon enough :) Do like walking though! Saves me pennies, lol!

Hoping to save some syns over the next couple of days, eating out TWICE tomorrow though :( Tis my friend's Bday and I'm hoping she wants to go to Nandos, I'm not the biggest fan but heard it's quite syn savvy... OH is taking me out for pub grub in the evening though, which will be slightly more difficult... Oh well, see what WI brings :)

Good luck on your journey :) x x
This is quite inspiring for a newbie like me, i like the things you're eating!!:);):D I'll keep reading your posts! Thanks Mxxx
Awww, thanks for the lovely comment Hun :) I thoroughly recommend it all (esp. the Toblerone, if you have a few syns spare!)

That's the best thing bout SW though, you can eat anything you fancy... Just hope I can claim some syns back and have a positive result come Wednesday... Really hoping for 1 lb... But we'll see! Trying not to get my hopes up, since I have been pushing it with my syns... x x
Day 5

Knew today was gonna be a bad one... Think I'm having a bit of a crisis wanting what I know I shouldn't have, but eating with people who don't really care, or don't have to care about what they're eating...

B: Apple, Dark Chocolate Fibre Plus

1.5mile walk to Train station

L: Bella Italia (eek) Spaghetti Genovese: Torn chicken breast with marinated rustic tomatoes sautéed with spaghetti and fresh basil pesto... Lovely, save for the gallons of oil... Funny how I ignored the sautéed bit in the restaurant :)

After lunch we saw Black Swan... (And I resisted all cinema treats, inc. the Ben and Jerrys man) For anyone who hasn't seen it, well worth a watch, bit dark like...

D: Pub grub: Prawn Cocktail (teeny bit of seafood sauce, lots of Prawns, Lettuce, Cumcumber and Tomato), Cajun Chicken (which was heart shaped, deliberate or not, made my day!) with jacket potato and loads of salad.

Resisted puds (hoorah!) and had a very yummy 2 fingered Kit Kat when we got home instead

Fluids: LOTS of diet coke

Day 7

B: 1 x red grapefuit, Vanilla fat free Activia

L: Pot Noodle in a mug - Chinese Chicken, Pineapple, Melon and Mango

Fluids: Pints and pints of water, and NAS squash


I thought this was going to be a very "woe is me" post, after spending all of today in bed with a headache, sulking (mostly because OH's scales told me I'd lost 0.8 of a lb - which I would've completely deserved for being a piggy) BUT not only did I lose 3 WHOLE lbs I also got my 2 and a half stone sticky :D I wanted to do a little dance on the scales!! I am however treating it as overdue from last week, when I was angelic and only lost 0.5lb... But we are having a treat night tonight, since OH is staying at mine, which never happens on a Wednesday and it's probably gonna be the last one *sniff* I'm also planning a flexisyn (draw a line under it and not get depressed) night tomorrow because I'm going to see Tangled with the girls and indulge in a few drinkiepoos... So, I will not complain if the scales do not budge at all next week :D x x
Week 2, Day 1

Morning all :)

After speaking to my C, apparently she thinks it better that I deduct the syns I use tonight off my weekly allowance to have less in the week... Not sure how I feel about that. Hypothetically (sp?) I use 100 syns tonight (we're eating/drinking at Revolution - not unlikely) I then muggle through on 5 for the week? But, I trust her, so we'll see how it goes :) Gonna allow myself the full 105syns this week, and NO treat night on Wednesday!!

B: 2 x Bacon, 1 x Egg, 2 x Wholemeal breads (B) Ketchup (1) Apple

2.7mile round walk to the gym

S: Tesco Light Choices Chocolate Mousse (3.5)

Off to the cinema to watch Tangled!! So excited, I adore Disney :D I have been nosey and discovered Ben and Jerry's do low fat frozen yogurt... I may have to indulge :)

Update - I did indulge, it was fab, tasted like icecream!! (10 ish)

D: Revolution: Ranch Burger, whoops :(

Too many cocktails to remember getting home...

Fluids: As much water as I can force myself to drink :D

Syns: A million
