    Hi everyone...I am getting married at the end of May which gives me 13 weeks (eeek) to lose just over a stone, or as close to that as I can! I've been doing SW for the last few weeks but have been brilliant half of the week, and then catastrophically bad for the rest! So this week I have decided to go all out. I'm doing it from home, as I did SW a few years ago and have all the info, plus all the new info seems to be on this site which is brilliant! I do go to the gym a couple of times a week, which I'm trying to do more of (!), but I also do socialise quite a lot - so meals and drinks out etc, which tends to be my downfall. I love reading everyone else's food diaries, and I'm really hoping that writing everything down will make me more committed!

    So far this week...

    Monday - Green Day
    Breakfast
    Low fat cottage cheese and banana (eaten together, really yummy, honest)
    Melon

    Lunch
    2 x Chicken Mug Shots (was too hungry for just one...)
    Fruit salad

    Dinner
    Quorn chilli and rice
    2 tbsps low fat sour cream (5 syns)

    Drinks
    700ml skimmed milk (2 x HEA) in several cups of tea!
    1L water

    Total syns: 5 :D


    Tuesday - Green Day
    Today I was at an all day conference with a working lunch, so had to eat what was there, although wasn't too bad, and then went to watch England/Australia play netball straight after work - tried to eat something before I went but was starving and then one of the girls ordered chips...........

    Breakfast
    2 x WW wholemeal bread (HEB) dipped in egg, cinammon and sweetener, fried in fry light (delicious) and topped with Vanilla Mullerlilght and Blueberries and Strawberries

    Lunch
    Oven-baked salmon (HEB) with fresh vegetables, potatoes and salad - small amount of tarragon cream in the potatoes (5 syns)
    Banana

    Dinner
    Low fat cottage cheese and banana
    Small portion french fries (8.5 syns)
    Mullerlight

    Drinks
    350ml skimmed milk (HEA)
    1L water
    2 x diet cokes

    Total syns: 13.5 :)

    Wednesday - Green Day
    Another meal out tonight - this time Zizzi's so I checked out the menu beforehand but am having to have a guess at how much oil was in it - it didn't taste like very much luckily!

    Breakfast
    Melon
    2 x WW wholemeal bread (HEB) dipped in egg, cinammon and sweetener, fried in fry light topped with Vanilla Mullerlight and Blueberries

    Lunch
    Quorn chilli and jacket potato
    Handful M&S baked edamame beans (1 syn)

    Dinner
    Zizzi's Linguine Gamberi (HEB for 5 tiger prawns) + 1 tsp parmesan (1.5 syns) + 1 tbsp oil (unlikely that much, but to be on the safe side - 6 syns)

    Drinks
    350ml skimmed milk (HEA)
    1L water
    2 x vodka and slimline tonics (5 syns)

    Total syns: 13.5 :)

    Are you using syns for your prawns as you've had your 2 hebs? They are not high in syns so you shouldn't be over your allowance. Looks good otherwise.

    Saturday - Red day
    Had a really bad day yesterday...I had chips from a restaurant on a red day....ooooops, never mind the wine etc. Still, I really really wanted them, and enjoyed every last mouthful, so I'm hoping as I didn't then to succumb to popcorn at the cinema and write off the entire day (!) I should hopefully be able to pull it back in the next few days, although I'm off to Newquay for 4 days next weekend so it's going to be hard to be 100% on plan.

    Lunch
    Chicken breast filled with 2 LCEL (2) and wrapped in bacon with salad

    Dinner
    Roasted artichoke hearts (4 syns for oil, just in case)
    200g Ribeye steak with green beans and chips (30? - although I have no idea how many syns really, I probably had about 20 chips, and they were proper chips not little skinny ones)
    1 175ml glass red wine (6)

    Drinks
    Diet coke
    500ml semi skimmed milk (A) x 2

    Total syns: About 42.....eeeeek :break_diet:

    Well, I had a long weekend in Newquay with a friend, and whilst I stuck to the principles of SW 95% of the time, I did drink quite a few vodka tonics, and had a kebab one night....eeeeeek! I have written down everything I ate, but not going to put it in here as too difficult to work out the syn values in any way accurately. BUT, weigh in this morning and I lost 2.5lbs somehow! Really hoping the bad weekend doesn't catch up with me next week....
