Gilly's Food Diaries


Just doing it this time
Had a real hungry day - my first real hungry day in nearly 4 weeks. BUT I think I have coped real well normally would just go off plan and have an eating day - have tried to plan.

3 weeks back on SW and lost 10lb's - first week 5, 2nd week 3, 3rd week 2lb's.

Have committed myself verbally to 4lb's off this week to try and make the stone - have done quite a bit more exercise and watched everything that's gone in my mouth - just hope I have done enough for Tuesdays weight in - anyway here's today:

1 weetabix and milk (3 syns & HEA)
lots of grapes.
1 banana.
2 bread (400gloaf) = HEB
2 dry fried eggs (in my new non stick pan which is super non stick)
Options = 2 syns
Milk in options = approx 3 syns = 8 syns to here.
Huge salad & chicken
Low fat dressing 2 tbsp = approx 4 syns
total syns for day= 12 syns.

Trying not to weigh myself - it's hard not to keep jumping on and off the scales like in the past though. Heres to tomorrow......

Must have another day tomorrow being good as I've committed myself to trying for the stone in 4 weeks ! - I have been doing a bit more exercise and watching everything that goes in my mouth this week.

Fingers crossed for Tuesday night weigh in.

Still trying hard not to get on scales but did get on them this morning :mad: - however, showing 12.4 - and 12.4 means I only have a pound to go for that stone! IF I don't make the stone at least I tried real hard to get to it.
Good luck for your weigh in. Try not to be too disappointed if you don't get your stone this week. 4lbs is a lot to ask of yourself.

Remember that any loss is a step in the right direction :)

Mullerlight when I got in from work.

Homemade chilli con carne - loads of veggies with mushrooms and plenty chilli powder - tinned tomatoes and lean bacon - extra lean minced beef - onion and garlic. Small amount of rice with peas and mushrooms to bulk it up. Absolutely blooming delicious.
