Helen's Weight Loss Diary - 2009


One of the members in one of the other threads mentioned that keeping a diary and writing things down helps with dieting, so I thought I'd give it a go.

My husband and I have both started the Slimming World diet, although we have not joined a club, just doing it off our own backs (we bought the books off Ebay). We both have a bit to lose, although I made a start last year by losing just under two stone.

Today didn't go so well - I wasn't planning on starting today, but the books came through the post this morning, so I thought I may as well get on with it. Well, that was after breakfast...luckily I'd just had a boiled egg which I was relieved to find was free. What depressed me was the syns value in a glass of fresh orange juice! And I couldn't help the sneaky biscuit I had mid-afternoon!

Here's to a better day tomorrow...

Today's a better day!


Well, it seems I might've got my syns mixed up yesterday - according to the Slimming World calculator, my morning orange juice wasn't astronomically filled with syns as I originally thought. Still, it seemed like a waste of syns, so this morning, along with my boiled egg, I had a cup of tea with just a dash of milk from my healthy extras.

I feel really pleased today as food has been far from my mind all day - probably because I was back at work and kept busy. I had an apple midmorning, and a sandwich filled with low fat sandwich filling and a bag of yummy smoky bacon Limbos for lunch. If you haven't tried them I seriously suggest you do. The bag is filled and they are so tasty, unlike some other low fat/low cal crisps. I also had a fromage frais, and a piece of cheese from my healthy extras.

Evening is my worst time for food. I get home from work maybe two or three hours before my husband, and am constantly snacking before tea. However, I've just had a ten calorie soup, at 1/2 a syn, which seems to have satisfied my food cravings! For tea I am doing lean steak, SW chips, and petit pois. I may even treat myself to a Skinny Cow lolly for afters!

After trying so many diets in the past and failing, perhaps I'm finally on track!

You're doing great.
Evenings are worse for me too. I'm in the habit of having a large meal on an evening - which used to be a takeaway - so now I really look forward to having a meal that I'm going to really enjoy. I wish I had some steak in cos now I want some lol
