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
Thanks for that. Will try to remember to add those things you mentioned.

Hi there, All your food looks good and on track.
Do you find the exercise helps your weight loss? iv just started back at the gym, and hoping for a better weight loss this week. x

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!

Lunch - chicken salad with tbsp balsamic vinegar (that is free, right??), Muller light (cherry)

Drinks - coffee (milk - HExA) and water

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

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

Oh my goodness, terrible couple of days!

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