    Well I am now 7.5 lb from target which seems so close yet so far away. I started SW in June 2013 and have lost exactly a stone, so compared to some my losses are very slow which at times can be really frustrating. I have messed around a lot in terms of finding the perfect formula for a good loss and I now believe that I need to be very strict with the 1/3 superfree rule. I hope that I am correct and that this will get me to target this summer. I thought it would help if I did a photo food diary so I can keep a record of what my plate looks like for each meal. So here goes. I will try and do every meal but may struggle on work days. Wed 5th March 2014: Breakfast: Apple Muller light Melon 2 x poached eggs on wholemeal toast (HexB) with 1tsp flora light (1 syn) Lunch: Chicken breast with Schwartz perfect shake seasoning. 1 potato made into wedges and salad with gherkins and 5 olives (0.5 syn) 2 tbsp log lighter than light mayo (1syn)[​IMG] Will post tea later.....

    Cheers. They are really easy to make and there are a few different ways but I made these the easy way - just microwaved a whole jacket spud for 10 mins, then sliced it into wedges once cooked, sprinkled with some peri peri chip spice then crisped off in the oven - gorgeous!!

    Total syns: 14

    Yeah I think so - I just pressed the plus button then attached the photos from my iPhone library - seems to be working now but didn't seem to work when I first tried - bit of a mystery!

    Sorry I haven't posted for a week, I have been ill with a sinus infection and last week went completely off plan - eating all kinds of horrific foods and feeling pretty disgusting. I went to group last night to draw a line under it and miraculously I had maintained but I had had a gain the previous week when I had been really good so I think it had all just evened out.

    So I am ready and rating to be back on plan - trying still to stick strictly to 1/3 superfree with each meal and not going over 15 syns any day.

    Breakfast - magic porridge made with 35 go porridge oats (HexB), activia 0% cherry yoghurt and frozen berries (sf)


    Lunch: quorn Spag Bol (1.5 syns), frozen veg (sf)
