    Hi I've decided to keep a food diary so all you kind people can steer me right if I go wrong or get stuck in a rut. I find my problem is timing as my husband doesn't get home till 5 and then after doing all the stuff we need to it can be 7pm before I even start thinking about making dinner and at that time after a busy day at home with my 2 year old daughter and 6 month old puppy lol I just want something quick and easy and that can be dangerous lol so I am attempting some SW recipes. So the diary starts today.

    Hi Jo,
    Good luck! I'm sure you'll get stuck into it.

    I have time issues too - my main excuse for lack of exercise actually, as I work full time, don't get home until 6 then I also have my 2 year old daughter to sort out for bed etc, before thinking about food! It pays to be very organised and I live by my meal plan I make for the week ahead so I know firstly what shopping to buy at our weekly Aldi shop so I stop wasting money, and also so I make sure I have stuff out of the freezer on time!

    I see you've already lost over 9lbs that's amazing in such a short time! I'm sure the weight will come off in no time x

    I have tried the food plan for the week and find I spend a lot more money that way but I have started making and freezing things so when it is 'one of those days' instead of slipping into bad and old habits e.g. bad frozen foods and takeaways I'll be able to throw a slimming world meal in the oven no prep time.

    Yes bulk cooking is fab too and great if you find yourself short for time. I'm always batch cooking in my slow cooker, mainly on the weekend when I have time. Trouble is my freezers always full!

    You'll be fine you just need to find what works for you x
