    Eat more to weigh less
    i thought that it might be helpful to write down what i am eating on a daily basis, and also somewhere for my werid and wonderful rants lol.


    breakfast -
    30g bran flakes - 1.5 points
    skimmed milk - 0.5 points
    total - 2 points

    snack -
    curly wurly - 1.5 points
    3 pk buscuits - 2.5 points
    ginger nut busciuts - 2 points
    total - 6 points (oh my god)

    lunch -
    ham sandwich from co-op - 5.5 points
    extra strong mints - 1.5 points
    total points - 7 points

    snack -
    apple - 0.5 points
    yoghurt - 2.5 points
    several plums - 2 points
    total - 5 points

    dinner -
    turkey spaghetti bolengse made with 2 carrots, onion, garlic, chopped tomatoes, turkey mince, peper, mushrooms, spagetti weighed out - 5 points

    i don't even want to total that up, god thats like super bad (arggggg) i know i need to cut out the buscuits (the ginger ones, and the 3 pack ones), i should have made my own sandwich (but had no bread in the house - i don't put both marg, and mayo on my sandwiches, and i also would have put so much ham in there), should not have eaten all the plums (still don't understand why bloody fruit is pointed - has anyone ever heard of anyone ever gaining weight eating fruit??) i would happily munch my way through that when i'm hungry. It kinda annoys me that they promote all their foods - some of which really aren't that good for you, cakes, buscuits, ice cream etc (all junk food really) and they tell you that you can spend 1 point on this and that but then label a banana with 1.5 - 2 points. Now if i was a little munchy and had one point to spend, what am i going to eat the banana which would put me half or one point over my allowance, but would probablay fill me up nicely or the piece of lemon drizzle cake which has no nutritional value which is 1 point????
    So i'm not really very happy with today - particularly as i didn't go to the gym tonight either.
    Its shopping day tomorrow so i'm going to try and make sure that i am properly organised and have everything that i would need for the week (so i don't end up having to stop at the co-op again).
    I would also really like to attempt to make some soup which i can have during my break times. So i'm going to add the vegetables that i need to my list as well.......
    I really want to lose 2 pounds this week, as that will bring me in under 11 stone which will be fabulous.
    I was thinking that i might try my wedding dress on tonight as motivation, but i think it would probablay make me feel rubbish so i'll leave it a few more weeks i think, and use my favourite jeans to judge what is happening with my weight.

    totally get you on the whole cake vs banana thing.. but tbh theyre there for people who still want to enjoy sweet things and want to be able to do so within their points.

    i like to stick with satsumas and plums as you can have 2 for 0.5pts which i think is fab, and i would still rather have those than a ww cake, but that might just be me rather than the rest of the world!

    feel sorry for you and your love of biccies.. i'm not a big sweet tooth but i do understand your pain as i love crisps and bread :(

    good luck for tomorrow xxx
