    Hello all,

    I'm new to this forum and although I've done SW before, I am trying the EE plan this time. I've been doing it for a bit more than a week now and to be honest, it seems a bit too good to be true.

    I'm going to try and post my diary every evening; my internet connection is a bit sporadic but I will try my best to get on!

    Any advice, or suggestions would be more than welcome. More than anything, I would just like someone to look over what I am eating and kinda give me the 'ok'!

    19/1

    0% fat Greek yogurt
    Grapes
    Aldi light hot choc sachet - 2 SYNS
    Vanilla, cherry and choc sprinkles Muller - 2 SYNS

    Pasta
    Tuna in brine
    1.5 tbsp Heinz mayo light - 3 SYNSish
    Sweetcorn

    Kinder snack choc bar - 3 SYNS
    Apple

    Roast potato cubes (like SW chips)
    Chopped tomatoes
    Onions
    Mushrooms
    Chilli flakes
    Mixed herbs
    Fry Light

    When I write it down like that, it looks like an awful lot!

    Thanks folks.

    Hiya! To be honest i don't think you're getting the one third superfree food requirement right.

    Yesterday, did you have mugshots for breakfast or was that lunch? If you skipped breakfast then I would advise you really need to make time for one.

    The only superfree foods you had yesterday were some grapes, pears, onion and tomatoes. So you really need to boost these up at EVERY meal.

    Also you don't seem to have had a HEB on either day, and you should also try and have a minimum of 5 syns a day.

    If you have any questions just give a shout!

    Have a look through some of the other Food Diaries on here Hun to give you some ideas of what the others are eating.
    I agree with Circes though, you arent eating nearly enough.

    23/1

    Salsa toasted twister from KFC - Not sure how many SYNS
    About 40 SYNS worth of low fat ice cream...not a great day, but hey ho!

    I have read on these forums that many people like to save their SYNS for a treat at some point during the week. I also read in one of the SW publications, all be it a while ago, that this was ,at least then, allowed by SW and is something I used to do successfully.
    From Monday onwards, I am going to try and keep my SYNS to a minimum whilst making sure that I have both of my HEXs each day.

    25/1

    Pear x2

    Potatoes
    Left over of yesterday's chilli

    Salsa Toasted Twister from KFC - 30 SYNS?
    Crispy Strip - 10 SYNS? Not sure about that one.

    Another not massively great day yesterday, my partner was off work sick and because I didn't feel overly great myself I didn't cook anything for dinner.

    We had to go out early evening and visit someone, then go into town so by 8pm we were hungry, headachy and feeling a wee bit sorry for ourselves. Anyway, this resulted in us getting a KFC rather than cook when we got back..to be honest, although I know it's not great, I'm not too worried about it cos my choice wasn't too bad and I'll just be extra good the rest of the week.

    Roll on Tuesday!!

    Ok, back again after a bit of faffing around, a couple of weeks of WW and a good bit of being a pig!

    I'm gonna go back to writing on here what I eat each day so I can keep track of things. I think it might be good to look back as I go on too.

    I'm also going to plan my meals for the week (for budgeting, as well as SW) so I'm more organised.

    Plans for today:

    BREAKFAST: Half galia melon, apple, Fat free Activia yogurt.

    LUNCH: Baked potato, beans and cheese (HEXa),
    Grapes, blueberries, Banana, Fat Free greek yog.

    Dinner: Meatballs and spaghetti - 1 syns
    Parmesan - 3 syns
    Apple, melon. FF yogurt.
    45g bag choco m&ms - I'm going for 11 syns, the same as the peanut ones until I know better!
    I'll be on again tonight to add any updates!

    15 Syns
