Today is our first day back on to the slimming world wagon and hopefully can stick to it and keep the momentum going!! Myself and my partner have piled on the weight and need to loose it! Ive attempted slimming world before but lost all motivation, the class I was going to just wasn't what I expected and I lost all faith in it, the majority of women that went were all the same or heavier than when they had joined 2 or 3 years ago and were more in interested in gossip - sounds awful of me but I joined to loose weight and get the motivation we very rarely got help with reciepes etc and the team leader women contradicted a lot of the stuff she told us or what was in the slimming world books etc. We have set out a sort of meal plan of the week, I suppose it works for us as my partner doesn't really comprehend the plan too much so its easier just telling him what to eat and hopefully we are getting it right! Any feedback would be great and Happy New Year to all!! Day 1; Both of us had; Hex A = 350ml of skimmed milk Hex B = 1 slice wholemeal bread (I will be having mine for tea, my partner used his for brekky) Breakfast; Me: Oats so simple apple & cherry porridge - 6.5 syns - used Hex A for milk Banana My Partner; 2 x wholemeal bread - Hex B + 5 syns 1 level tbspoon lurpak - 5.5 syns 1 x banana Snack: Me; Apple Partner: Banana & Orange Dinner: Me: Large jacket with 1 level teaspoon of lurpak = 2 syns Large salad Scallions Orange Partner; Don't know! Havent spoken to him yet!! But will most likely be along the same lines as myself! For tea we are making a beef stew, I think the only syns needed are for the gravy.. I think? Ive been mainly drinking green tea or fruit teas to cut down on the caffeine, do I need to syns these too? Thanks!!
