J's mainly red days diary - this time's for good!

I lost 4 stone a few years ago on SW but poorliness and subsequent dodgy thyroid mademe put it all back on +++. I've had problems motivating myself as I can be an emotional eater with endometriosis and hormone imbalances ( spotty and prone to crying for 6 hours if I stub my toe at the wrong time of the month) . Money is tight so I'm following what I did before on slimming world but without the meetings and using this fab site and all the lovely people on it to keep me going. I've been doing it for a week now and weighed myself this morning to find I've lost 8lb!

Midnight snack ( 1 minute after midnight so will count it with todays food and not yesterdays! ;)) Quorn pepper thingy FREE with HEX Mozz. cheeze melted on it - REALLY yummy. Thought about having a naughty whiskey to go with it but I'm proud to say I resisted. Breakfast was a couple of slices of a really juicy pineapple but a bit peckish by 10.30 and lunch no.1 was Quorn curry HExb + 3 sins . I'll prob have a lunch number 2 somewhere in the afternoon :D I def. seem to eat more on the days I don't have a good protein filled brekkie.

Lunch no.2 has been 6 kallo savoury rice cakes 9 syns and an apple

Tea - whole packet of fishsticks and halfa tub cottage cheese! lol

Ok..Tuesday today. I felt as if I was hungry all day yesterday so I'm going to be a bit more sensible today. My space bar isnt working every time I press it so I hope this ends up readable.

Brekkie - peppered Quorn fillet FREE with HExA Cheese and a couple of plums. Midmorning small banana

Lunch - quorn gruyere cheese quorne fillet 7.5 syns with broccolli and french beans. I am not veggie but I find quorn low in fat, easy to cook and tasty.

mid afternoon I ate the other quorn fillet in the packet, 3 spring onions and another HEx of cheese!!!

Tea - I covered some chicken breasts in jamaican spice this morning and left them to sit. I'm slicing them and stir frying them with pineapple chunks and crunchy veg

half an avocado 7.5 syns and some HExB finn crisps

Another day of constant eatin'!:sigh::p

Hello Soccermom!

Hi mb good luck with sw.

Thanks so much for saying hello. This site seems to be giving me the boost I needed after stopping and starting again many times over the last year.

How is the 'shred' going? I'm waiting for my DVD to arrive, I've become quite quite unfit though so I'm a bit scared!:eek:

Good luck to you too! Have you got lots of tasty things to ease yourself in with today?

Jo x


Having just done my first day of shred I can honestly say nothing is as hard as that :eek: that I have ever tried.

Not sure if thats because of the extra weight I have put on over the last few months or that its just hard I expect the latter :D I honestly felt sick after and I have never started to sweat so much so soon before.

All in all very good and does the job :p dont let me put you off.

As for food I can always find something in the cupboards but there's nothing specifically lined up I have done the shopping for this week, but I can make the plan work for the next few days.

Theres always bacon and eggs, cheese and jacket pots etc.

I am back to following red as initially that gave me a good starting weight loss and it fits better with whats in the cupbard this week, but I will probably end up going back to EE I always do it just seems to fit better with the family.

Lunch - 30 syns worth of white chocolate!!! oooops

@ soccermom I feel sick after 15mins SLOWLY jogging using a step so I know it will be bad but I'm sure it will make all the difference. My body doesn't stop wobbling for 5mins after I stop exercising though - it will be great to get rid of that side effect.

Well, I have so far today I've cooked a variety of meals for people running in and out but I have only had three microwaved quorn sausages, and apple and HEXA cheese myself and it is afternoon already. Haven't felt too hungry so far but I'm sure that will change as the day goes on.

@ soccermom, I like a Gin and Tonic if the opportunity arises ( sadly not so often!) but they say that the clear drinks are the lowest in calories. It makes a change for me to prefer a lower calorie option of anything! I remember the awful concoctions I used to make after the pub when I was in college. I had the metabolism to burn off microwaved fishfingers and cheese with mayo then but sadly no more!
Monday - very tired, would be easy to eat cake!

Not sure if I'm having a hungry day or not - didn't sleep well and tiredness is supposed to make you hungry. I'd like to eat more today but to tired to be bothered to get it....zzzzzzz
