    I have just joined this site, and what a good idea having a food diary section. This should help keep me on track!

    So here goes...I am quite new on SW and only started back on plan this weekend. I have gotten so fat again - I've gained 2 stone over the last year after losing 4 stone. I feel awful, it's affecting my moods and self confidence. I need to do something about it and just being back on track is making me feel better - like I'm doing something positive towards making myself feel better!

    Please comment on my foods if you want to, I'll appreciate any guidance! :)

    Thanks!!

    Hellie

    Having another great day today. :D Made the veg crisps, which although not a total success, were very tasty and will improve next time I make them! I have a cold coming on and am all bunged up in the head, so have made a rogan josh curry this afternoon and it's sitting on the hob getting all tasty now!! I love being off work, it's so much easier to plan foods. I don't know how I'm going to cope when I've got to go back to work!!! :(

    Sunday update on Saturday night...

    So, I went out! First bit of alcohol for over a week, thought I would get smashed. But nooooo...I was the only flipping sober one all night! Now, don't get me wrong, it was very nice not to be falling down drunk and it's lovely not to have a hangover this morning, but really, what a flipping waste of syns! I would at least liked to have been mildly merry! I spent all those syns on gin and didn't get even slightly tipsy!!! GUTTED!
    I did have a very good week last week though and so did have some flexible syns to play with (not that I'm working it like that, but it give me a little slack). So now I just need to be great again this week because otherwise those gins are totally going to come and bite my in the belly!
    I'm going away to see some friends in London this weekend, so WI will have to be on Friday morning instead. So that's extra extra being good...eek!

    Here is Sunday's food diary:

    I'm not going to write down everything I ate and drank over the weekend! :cry:
    I generally ate okay - Friday I drove down and took boiled eggs, chicken, fruit and diet coke with me for the journey. Had a chinese for dinner but chose chicken and mushrooms in oyster sauce, not tooooo bad and hadn't had any syns all day so ok.
    Saturday was harder, seeing as I was staying with my fitness freak friend who runs marathons and can eat anything. Had fruit and fibre for brekkie and lunch was ok but not brill - a falafel wrap thingy. Mega syns probably. Saturday night was the party and I had a reasonable amout of wine and a few nibbles, but acutally not that bad. Sunday went a bit nuts and had a burger on the journey back!!! Added to the bagel for breakfast and a couple of mince pies at the in-laws, Sunday was NOT a good day.
    Back on track today though. Having a couple of glasses of wine as my syns today - it's my first day back at work for over 3 weeks so I think I deserve it! :p
    Will start diary-doing again tomorrow.

    Well, guess what? I haven't been terrifically on plan the last few days! :sigh:

    I had a lovely girly weekend away and made mostly sensible food choices (if you count brown bread icecream as a HE and ignore the chocolate fudge brownie with bourbon ice cream, and hotel breakfasts!)

    But I've only gained 1lb, so I'm not too unhappy with that and I've had a marvellous weekend. Back on track today with no excuse for going off plan this week (until the weekend anyway) so I'm having red this week until my friends come up at the weekend and then I know I'll syn on wine mostly! lol!

    Today I am eating:

    Breakfast
    Grapefruit ss

    Lunch
    chicken tikka pieces with salad
    Vanilla muller light

    Dinner
    Chicken breast stuffed with extra light cream cheese and wrapped in bacon, with roast veg
    Meringue 3 with forest fruits and vlf natural yoghurt

    Snacks
    Apple
    Clementines

    Thanks! Ah, you're lovely. I hope so. Grapefruit is my miracle weight loss food actually. It really helps me out. If I can have that for brekkie all week I should be well on my way. Will sneak a few other super foods in there too and get a bit of exercise.
