    on easter sunday i had more chocolate than i intended probably over ate by 35 syns :eek:. On monday I decided to draw a line on it and start ahead. for some reason i decided to weigh myself first thing in the morning and i found out that i'd gained half a pound. i had a good start and tried not to let it derail me but by the evening i was having some beer and eating crisps over my syns.
    I will certainly not moan about not losing any or as much weight as expected for a first week.

    I read something in slimming world magazine that basically says not to chuck the baby with the bath water.. not to let it be all or nothing.. previously i'd give up completely because of a slip up and let it spiral into weeks of self loathing, binging and despair.

    looking back, if i'd done stuck to any of those diets i would've reached my weight already. so the lesson is one meal or one day does not equal failure. I don't have to be 100%, 80 or 90% will also do. It's not all or nothing. people who get fat didn't get so from one or two days of over eating.. it's what you eat/do the majority of the time.

    Other triggers include lack of good quality sleep, using up my syns early in the day and having high syn foods/treats at home.

    OK so now thats out of the way..onto todays menu

    B: porridge and milk hea and heb, tea, 3.5 quorn sausages at 3.5 syns
    S: tea, freddo caramel 5 syns
    L: beetroot and new potatoes mixed with mustard powder and fat free fromage frais
    D: mushroom, leeks and bacon pasta with salad

    5th day
    B: tea and coffee made up with hea, leftover pasta
    L: aldi cheese curles 3 syns and marmite, tomato and cucumber sandwich nimble heb
    D: slow cooker chicken and veg curry with rice, freddo caramel 5 syns, highlights 2 syns

    I really need to stop weighing myself :( yesterday it showed half a pound loss and today same start weight. i know weight can fluctuate day to day and sometimes within hours but i still find myself sneaking a weigh in......... my official weigh in day is friday . i must remember the indulgences i've had and that admittedly i haven't always stuck to 1/3 super free.. i must be patient and give it time. and be realistic about my expectations..i am eating a lot of delicious healthy food and that is better than the ready made junk and pints of beer i used to have... even if i lose slowly i'm sure my skin and the bloating will improve.

    have a good day all!

    my dinner yesterday was very tasty and i was hungry when i got home it was nice to have something hot and ready.
    i snacked on fruit and drank lots of water rather than using up my syns early on

    well i sneaked a weigh in again..very naugty i know i know!
    i sts. officially my weigh in day is tomorrow but its not looking good.. and i know why..
    i ave done it before and lost weight sticking to it loosely so i guess i hopped id get away with my easter choccie feast and monday beers and crisps.

    L: pasta and mackrel in tomato sauce with sweetcorn and peas and salad

    not a food diary just an update..

    today i weigh 13st 2lb
    i have eaten lots of ready salted crisps, chocolate, bread, mcdonald...
    so i have messed up big time. all the time i was eating it i was remembering what i typed up here.

    yesterday i decided to have a vegetable juice for breakfast. i was fine until 1oclock.. i decided to eat some fruit..and by the evening i was eating a big bag of crisps..

    its ironic isnt it.. i was unhappy about my weight... so started sw... then cheated ..thinking i'll be fine..or hoping it at least..then when the scales reflected a minor gain i go off and hoover everything into my mouth. .. and here i am with an even bigger gain..

    ive looked at some food diaries on here and the calories seem very few you are bound to lose weight so i wonder if those who lost on slimming world was because they ate fewer calories anyway.. so might as well be calorie counting?
    maybe i need to look at other diaries where you have a big english for breakfast, a giant pasta salad for lunch and for dinner a curry and rice..and then 10 or 15 syns on top? because thats what i thought i can do on slimming world.......
    maybe people naturally start to regulate their appetite and dont need as much food when theyve been on the plan for a while..so thats why they have fruit or yogurt for breakkie, a green salad or soup with hifi and a lean chicken with veg and a few pots as heb and feel ok. or maybe they feel hungry but stick it out?

    then i tell myself, i cant really blame the program if i havent stuck to it properly... and thats when i return again for another try......

    ive tried going to group, i was still cheating.. ive tried keeping a diary online and offline.. ive tried telling friends and family..ive tried writing down my reasons ....
    maybe im just too stubborn? i dont know..........

    i will certainly look around for other "big eaters" who are losing on EE.........if you know of one, please let me know thanks
