    Lunch - tuna salad (lettuce, cherry toms, spring onions, radishes, cucumber), Hartleys jelly, Muller yoghurt

    Dinner - veg stir fry with noodles and soy sauce, Muller yoghurt

    Snacks - 2 x alpen light, 2 x plums, muller light, strawberries and hartleys jelly

    Hi

    I am no expert but looks okay to me.:)
    Maybe put what day you are on, ie red/green etc and what were your HEA/B's and number of syns (can't remember if you did that!), I find it helps to note these incase you miss them and sometimes I change what type of day I am on when I do my diary!
    Even note any exercise:p or be honest and put if you have a bad day etc

    Your weight loss has been really good, well done, keep it up:D

    No, sadly I find the opposite! I seem to lose less when I've exercised more. Having said that, my clothes feel looser. I just tell myself that I'm building muscle and that weighs more than fat anyway! I hope I'm right!

    I was told that my muscles may retain water when exercising meaning i might not loose. suppose like you said as long as your clothes are looser its worthwhile. eek! hope i dont put on though, that would really put me off exercising. x

    Tuesday 12th April

    Shopping day tonight, so will be eating up whatever is in fridge! Need to spend some time today going through recipe thread and making a shopping list. Also weigh in night but not very confident - I don't feel very slim this week :-( I've noticed from the food diary I seem to do a lot of snacking - probably why I'm overweight in the first place!

    Breakfast - SW pancake and kiwi fruit (the only fruit left!!)

    Lunch - couscous, Muller yoghurt (raspberry and cranberry), kiwi

    Snacks - hartleys jelly (0.5 syns)

    Syns so far: 0.5

    Went to weigh in and shopping, after which things all went a bit to pot!! This is what I had, although I'm not counting anything. Tomorrow is another day...

    While shopping... peanut bar

    After shopping... 150g sushi snack pack (shared with DS and DD), 1 x mini babybel light, 1 x packet salt and vinegar chipsticks, 1 pack mixed cooked seafood (shared with DD and DS), 1 x muller yoghurt

    Gah, only lost 0.5lb since last week, which doesn't surprise me as feel very fat and bloated anyway. Thought I'd lost nothing until I checked my weight from last week!

    Too much snacking I wonder?

    Wednesday 13th April

    The aim today is to drink more water. And also to try and eat more fibre. At the risk of TMI, it is a while since I have 'been to the toilet' and that is not like me!! Much as I love eggs, maybe time to lay off them a little while

    Breakfast - 2 x Alpen Light (HExB), banana, grapes, 4 x prunes (2 syns)

    Lunch - mackerel salad (2 syns), muller yoghurt

    Dinner - beans on toast (nimble) (5 syns, I think!), meringue nest (2.5 syns) with strawberries and muller yoghurt

    Snack - kiwi

    Drinks - coffee (with milk (HExA) ) and water, plenty of it, hopefully!

    Syns so far - 11.5
    Exercise - just got Zumba fitness for Wii so going to try that out

    Keep going, I know only too well that it is disheartening when you feel like you haven't lost much;)
    It's in the right direction and that's what matters.
    Keep drinking that water:D

    Friday 15th April

    Well, I started the C25K and had very wobbly legs all evening. Still, it took my mind off eating. Going to do the second session tonight.

    Breakfast: shredded wheat bitesize (HExb) with milk from HExA, tangerine

    Lunch: salad with fat free cottage cheese, tangerine, Hartleys jelly (0.5 syns), Alpen Light (3 syns)

    Dinner: (probably) Left over pasta from yesterday, no syn egg custard - tried this from recipe on puddings board and it was horrible! Remade it using eggs, sweetener and the mik left from HExA allowance - much nicer!

    Snacks: tangerine, Breakaway (5.5 syns), Muller yoghurt x 2, 4 prunes (2 syns)

    Syns: 11 so far

    Exercise - day 2 of Cto5k

    Tomorrow, we're going to Alton Towers for the weekend and eating at Frankie and Benny's on the evening. Need to find out what is a healthy option ot eat there!

    Saturday 16th April

    Ooh, achy legs today! Well, off to Stoke today with a visit to Alton Towers planned for tomorrow. I will try my best to be good at Frankie and Benny's tonight but might not be able to resist a dessert :(

    Breakfast: tangerine, banana, Muller yoghurt, 2 prunes (1 syn), Alpen light (0.5 HExB)

    Lunch: salad, maybe with mackerel again, Alpen light (0.5 HExB), babybel light (1.5 syns)

    Dinner: who knows???

    Drinks: coffee (with milk from HExA) and plenty of water

    Syns so far: 2.5

    Exercise: probably very little! My excuse is I'm giving my muscles a chance to rest and repair from running the last two days!

    Oh my goodness, terrible couple of days!

    Let's start with dinner on Saturday night! I had bacon chops with cherry tomatoes, a large mushroom (cooked in oil) and herby potatoes, then a piece of cheesecake, oops! I also had a piece of the garlic bread with cheese that was delivered for the table!

    Sunday
    Breakfast - bacon, mushrooms, beans. Mixed berries, topped with fat free blueberry yoghurt, a spoonful of pumpkin seeds and a spoonful of dried fruit

    Lunch - chicken, half a dozen lattice fries, 2 onion rings

    Snack - Crunchie McFlurry :eek:

    Dinner - 3 egg omelette, kiwi, yoghurt

    Quite a naughty weekend. It's beyond me even to add up how many syns I might have had! Think the best thing to do is just start afresh today!

    Hoping some of the walking I've done around Alton Towers will have walked some of it off!
