Hi all,

This is the first time i have publically posted a food diary, and im hoping by doing it it'll keep me motivated and stop me doing any (much) damage eating the wrong things.

So here goes Day 1:

Extra easy day
Breakfast: 2 weetabix (B) Milk from allowance (A) canderel sweetner

lunch: didnt really have much of a lunch as i didnt get up til 11am (lazy bugger i know) i had a ham a cheese 24 deli roll (4 syns), a pack of seafood sticks, 2 cups of tea with milk from (A) with sweetner
then went to the supermarket to stock up

Dinner

Made soup (leeks, red split lentils, pepper, courgette, tinned chopped tomatoes, garlic, onions, 2 chicken stock cubes) would have added beans to make it more of a superspeed but i cant stand beans or peas i can only stand chickpeas. had 2 big bowls of it and it was lush!
nighttime is my worst time for eating, so will add the rest of todays diary tomorrow...got lots of stuff in thats healthy so i should be ok.

On EE on you are supposed to have to have 1/3 superfree food with every meal so you may need to think about that for breakfasts & lunch.

Try adding fruit to bfast (banana or berries) and for lunch some salad (get some salad light - its like frylight for salad - its free and the cesaer one is yummy) x

Hi Jo,

Good luck with the dairy and hope it keeps you motivated. I must admit that i dont post a dairy myself but reading others people's does keep me motivated !! I've been doing slimming world on my own now since October and I can honestly say it is one of the easiest diets around ! (I was a WW girl before this).
Good luck and keeping my fingers crossed for you !!

Just wanted to reitterate Slimbysummer's point really. If you're following EE it's really important that you have 1/3 SuperFree with each meal - otherwise you're not really following the plan at all.

Your Dinner looks fine as it's all mainly SuperFree, but you really need to get some into your breakfast/lunches. How about topping your weetabix with some fruit, and having a side salad with your lunches.

If you have any queries just ask, there's always someone around to help. Good luck xx

Thanks to you both, Obviously my brain wasnt quite engaged in gear yesterday as i forgot the superfree :rolleyes: tut!

to yesterdays diary need to add:

2 packets of butterkist 25g popcorn (5 syns each) (10 syns total)
a packet of grapes
small pack pomegranate seeds
another cup of tea (using the rest of me milk from A)

So in total i had 14 syns yesterday not bad considering last week i probably averaged about 100 a day lol!


Day 2: another attempt at extra easy

Breakfast: scrambled egg made with 2 eggs and milk from (A) on 2 slices nimble wholemeal bread, and a pack of fruit fingers (including mango, pineapple and melon)

lunch will probably be some more of that soup as theres loads left looking forward to that and ill decide on dinner when i get back from the hospital (got an appointment with my orthodentist about fixing my retainer as my dog got hold of it! :mad: the dentist is not going to be a happy bunny methinks!)

My friend is doing her version of slimfast which is basically calorie counting, and shes lost 6 stone so far ive got a touch of the green eyed monster cos i struggle to lose weight as i have to take steroid replacement she started at 18 stone and shes now almost the same as me. Shes challenged me though, weve both said the first one to get to 10 stone has to buy the other one a slap up dinner of the others choice knowing her itll be the bloody ivy or somewhere! I never back down though so im gonna really push myself with this gonna hit the gym this afternoon. Ooh shes gonna regret crossing me hehe!

day 2 completed:

breakfast: scrambled egg made with 2 eggs and milk from (A) on 2 slices nimble wholemeal bread (B) and one tablespoon ketchup (1 syn), and a pack of fruit fingers (including mango, pineapple and melon)


lunch: didnt have any lunch foodwise as such but had 2 skinny lattes whilst waiting for my new retainer to be made one large and one small (12 syns altogether it was i found out including the milk i think next time ill just have a pepsi max!)


dinner: 2 bowls of the soup from yesterday
(leeks, red split lentils, pepper, courgette, tinned chopped tomatoes, garlic, onions, 2 chicken stock cubes)
pomegranate seeds

snacks: 2 packs of seafood sticks (got the munchies) 2 cups of tea with rest of milk from (A) pack of prawns with 2 tbsp sweet chilli dipping sauce (3 syns)


altogether 16 syns not bad considering i got a serious case of the munchies, more of a boredom thing than actually being hungry so had a cup of tea and then decided i was ok afterall. Phew long day today im off to bed now plus retainer which im sure means im not in for the most comfortable of nights...

Does this look ok as an extra easy? i tried to bear in mind what you all said about the 3rd superfree, and as you can see i added fruit to me breakfast and the soup was mainly superfree anyway.
