    Well today I have decided to start a food diary as I have been a bit slack recently! Hopefully it will help me stay a bit more focused :)

    Am using EE as have used it before and am pretty familiar with how it works..... i think!

    When I went to group last year (!) was pretty much the same weight, and was told to aim for 10 syns a day - but will be hoping to bank up a few to use at the weekend over a few bevvie's (that will probably mean all of them then!)

    Does anyone else do this?? Not sure if banking syns and splurging them on alcohol is really a good idea for weightloss but I do find I drink most weekends.

    Anyway, here goes :) ....

    B: bananna & black coffee

    L: 2x wholemeal nimble (hexB), ham, cheese (hexA), 2xtsp extra light mayo (1syn), e.light butter (1syn)
    Low fat yoghurt (1.5syn) - run out of muller lights eeek!

    Snack: small tin of spaghetti hoops - 0 syns I think??????????

    Will be going for a walk with the dog in a bit

    Reallly craving some choccy! Hmmph must be totm due - another low fat yoghurt @ 1.5 syns, what a piggy!


    D: will be - chilli chicken noodles- plum sauce (1.5 syn), 1/2 tsp vegetable oil ( 1syn)

    Ps i feel like im eating loads?! ??

    2 x vodka 35ml 8 syns

    Syns: 15

    Hi,

    Happy Thursday, its nearly the weekend :)

    Back at work today, hopefuly will stop me snacking!
    Have a headache today - that may be the reason why!!

    Am trying to drink a lot more water today but am finding it hard as i dont really fancy it some days. Will maybe have some green tea, need to cut down the coffee!

    B:
    low fat fruit yoghurt (1.5syns)
    Banana

    Snack:
    black coffee
    Banana
    Fox's crunch cream (4syns)

    L:
    Tesco instant chicken noodles (2.5syns)
    2xWholemeal Nimble (HexB)
    E.l butter x2 tsp (1syn)
    Marmite (yum!)

    Can of diet coke to pick me up a bit mid pm! Lol

    D: (will be)
    2x smoked salmon fillets
    Loads of broccoli carrots peas and cauliflower

    Excercise: some dance central on the xbox 360 :)

    Dont get paid until next Fri so am a bit skint, therefore not much of the green stuff included within my days at the moment :(

    Still, we can only make do with what we have.

    I suppose I could have avoided the crunch cream and saves the suns for a drink at the weekend........

    Morning :)

    Am not going to even go into the last few days! I have had mainly sw meals but WAY too many syns!
    Boyfriend has been over and am finding it hard to say no! Its like I have no willpower, when the biscuits are there i have to eat them, not good! Im the same at work aswell. need to sort that out, anyone got any tips on willpower? Lol

    So today (Sunday) I am going to do my damndest to stay 100%

    I find once I get one 100% day it motivates me a bit more.
    Im motivated to loose it anyway so i dont know why i binge :(

    B: Had cereal & milk (HeA & B) and a muller light for brekkie.

    Am off to Guildford to do someones hair so will take a bananna if i get peckish. Have no idea what I will have the rest of the day so will update later

    Snack: bananna

    L: rock cake (9 syns), 2 satsumas

    D: tuna Sushi

    Exercise: 1/2 hr Dance central (dancing game on xbox incase you were wondering! Lol)

    Snack: Batchelors cup a pasta - creamy cheese (1.5 syns), mandarines

    Total 10.5 syns

    Hi Gemma, just popped in to say you are doing really well x

    Saving some of your syns for a weekend is absolutely fine hun ;) Just don't deprive yourself too much in the week - we need the odd treat :)

    I was getting headaches the first couple of weeks ... I think it's our bodies reacting to the lack of the 'usual' foods it gets fed. They will stop - just reach out for superfree then free in that order if possible and you'll be fine x

    Hi Gemma!

    Well done on losing a pound! That's awesome!!
    I still can't get to grips with EE.. it doesn't seem to work for me! meh.
    Are the cup pastas worth the syns? I miss green days!!!

    Good luck with your week xx

    Thanks hun, i seem to find EE quite easy for some reason, theres hardly any thinking involved and i just try to stick to free foods wherever i can. I think using meat/pasta as hea and b would confuse the hell out of me but on ee you can have both :)

    The cup a pastas are quite nice and quite filling for a snack but not a main meal. The tomato and herb or vegetable flavours are actually FREE though which is a bonus :)

    Hmmm, an okay day i guess but still higher than i would like on syns :(

    I think i need to focus on having no syns at all suring the day as i tend to use most of my syns in the evening, then i can have an evening treat while being able to save a few syns! X

    I've just come to that conclusion myself hun after totting up today's syns. I usually only syn at night but today I had a packet of crisps (1st packet in a month!) so that was 6.5 syns. I had a dessert tonight which is unusual for me ... another 6.5 syns! Then 6 little cheeky wine gums ... another 4.5 syns!

    Bad Ali :sign0007:

    Looks like a red day to me hun - you don't usually have those! Don't forget you can have another HEA and HEB tonight if you get peckish ;)

    Don't worry about the custard creams - could've been a lot worse :D

    Hi Ali,
    Do you think so?! Looking back at it I suppose you're right, I hadnt really thought about red/green i really need to sit and go through them i think, as I just thought I would always do EE every day. I could have actually done with an extra hea-b yesterday :) thanks!

    Hi,

    Well after Ali's insight yesterday I am going to sit down later and actually go through red/green as I had never done those before and it seems i had a red day.

    Am going to take today as an EE for now as i havnt had time yet.....

    B: rice pudding (milk HexA), sugar (2syns),
    Bananna

    S: Jammy Dodgers (9syns - wish christine would stop bringing biccys into work lol

    L: Wholemeal roll (HexB), tuna, scorn, extra light mayo (1 syn)
    Muller Light

    D: ham & mushroom omlette, olive oil & ketchup (2syns)
    Rocky caramel bar (5syns!)


    Syns: 19!

    Omg! Lol

    Does anyone know of any low syn treats? Ive got a really sweet tooth at the mo and i cant seem to stop myself its crazy! I hate it, time of the month due but i must have more control than that?! Lols how depressing! Still really craving some choccy or something feel like writing the whole day off! :(

    I suppose tomorrow is another day and i can only try again. I am determined to do this and im getting sick of wasting my syn in sugary treats its the only thing i fall down on and it gets me every time. I need to stop craving them and get some willpower its horrible.

    Hi I was just reading some of your diary I suffer with the biscuit munchies too, after trying everything within my willpower (not much) so the only way left was to not buy them as I cant just eat one.

    Ive not bought any biscuits cakes sweets for over a week, as I would have to drive to a shop I cant just nip out.

    Keep going Im sure you will get to your goal


    :D
