Keeping Track

Ok ... so i'm very new to this site but have been doing Slimming World for 6 weeks now and have lost 11lbs so far but am being a bit rubbish at writing out my food diary and thought that I might try keeping track this way ...:whip:

Today is a green day ..

28g Bran Flakes (HEb) with milk from allowance and a banana.

Mid Morning
Blue Riband (5 syns)

3 x Ryvita Wholegrain Crackerbread (1/2 HEb) with 2.5 LC Lights (1/2 HEa) and 42g ham (1/2 HEb)

Fresh mango

Mid afternoon
Tomato pasta mugshot

Dinner (will be ..)
Pasta with cherry tomato's, onions peppers, passata and chilli with 14g of grated cheddar (1/2 HEa)

If i have anything later it will be fruit and yogurt.

I will have used up all of my 350mls of skimmed milk (HEa)

As you can see I am a big fan of halving my HE's as it gives me more variety and I sometimes find the portions to be more than I would usually eat (eg 6 Ryvita Wholegrain Crackerbread!)

Does anyone else do this??

Uurghh ... why do rainy day's make me want to eat loads?:sigh:

Going to try EE today, usually struggle with these but they seem to boost my weight loss so here goes ..

Breakfast - 1 Weetabix (1/2 HEb) crumbled over a banana with a banana and custard Muller light on top

Snack - 2 x Ryvita wholegrain crackerbread with ham and 1 LC light triangle (3.5 syns)

Lunch - left over pasta from last night (with tomato's, chilli, peppers, onions and pasatta) and apple and a pear.

For later - 1 x Alpen light bar (other 1/2 HEb)

HEa is 350mls skimmed milk

Not sure about dinner yet as am going shopping after work :p

I struggle a bit with what to eat if i'm out and about ... probably jacket potato and beans as it's safe :) anyone have any other ideas for eating out and about on EE??


Starting Again
As you can see I am a big fan of halving my HE's as it gives me more variety and I sometimes find the portions to be more than I would usually eat (eg 6 Ryvita Wholegrain Crackerbread!)

Does anyone else do this??
I've started to do that to, makes it much easier to keep full allday for me.
Yippee it's Friday! and my last day at work for a week!

I passed on the jacket and beans last night and had a Count on Us sweet and sour chicken with rice and peas but have no idea how many syns?? Most of other CoU meals are between 3.5 and 6 so I counted 6 to be on the safe side.

Havn't decided what kind of day to have yet ... so far i've had:

28g of Porridge Oats (HEb) made with 175mls skimmed milk (1/2 HEa), topped with 1tsp of honey (1 syn) and a handful of Blueberries (need to fit in a scan bran somewhere :yuk:)

Mid-Morning: banana

Jacket Potato with 2.5 LC Light triangles (1/2 HEa) and beans

Mid-afternoon: 1 x Alpen Light bar (3 syns)

Hubby wants chinese tonight which feels really naughty ... but yummy! Book says chicken in black bean sauce is 5 syns on EE and rice would be free ... maybe I could go EE and squeeze it in!? Hmmm decisions, decisions ;) ??

Mrs V

Loves Life!
Go with the chinese Hun. Stick to what is within your syn range and that way you wont feel left out. I had an indian takeaway last night as I was on an EE day and as long as you have plain boiled rice it would be free! Enjoy!
If ever I go to a pub, I make sure that Im on an EE day and I usually have gammon with fried egg (1 syn) and a jacket potato with salad.
Thanks Mrs V, I think I will :p

Like your suggestion for the pub meal too ... I love gammon steak!

Yummy chinese last night. Havn't had takeaway for ages and managed to stay within syns!

Today's EE menu ..

WW yogurt and 2 peaches

Mid morning - handful blueberries

3 x Ryvita crisbreads (1/2 HEb) spread with EL Mayo (1/2syn) topped with ham and cucumber

Mid afternoon - 1 x alpen light (1/2 HEb)

Cottage pie type thing made with EL steak mince, mixed veg, chopped toms, wourcester sauce and a beef oxo and sliced potato's on top and a portion of steamed broccoli

Realised that I had only used 1/2 my HEa in milk so had a hot chocolate with the other half (3.5 syns) and had a blue ribband (5 syns) choc fest!! Yummy!!

It's my little boys birthday bbq tomorrow .. little does everyone know that they will be tucking into Slimming World salads to go with the chicken, pork and SW burgers!! :whistle: Ha ha, they're all having an EE day with me!! :p
Glad you decided on the chinese - that's one of the great things about SW there are so many things you can have that feel really naughty that you don't feel like you're missing out at all. Even my Alpen Light bars feel like they shouldn't be allowed & you can have 2 a day as a HEB! I am easily pleased :crazy:

I think I eat a much bigger variety of things and definitely enjoy my food more now.
Back with the programme !

I'm back! Been on holiday for a week, nowhere fancy, just a few days in a caravan on the south coast ... but it was lovely, managed to stick to the plan (well, apart from the fish and chips and the Blueberry Tart!?) and I was very relieved that I didn't put any weight on at all despite the odd treat here and there :angel09:

The birthday bbq was fab and everyone complimented me on the salads, they were enjoying it so much I didn't even bother telling them they were all SW!

So ... back to the programme. Started off on a green day as I thought that I might need the carbs to get me through the first day back at work!

Breakfast: 28g Shreddies (HEb) with banana, blueberries and vanilla mullerlight.

Snack - 2 x Ryvita wholegrain crackerbread (1 from HEb to go with shreddies + 1 syn) with 2 x LC Light triangles (HEa)

Lunch: Jacket with beans and 2 x LC Light Triangles (HEa) followed by more blueberries ... can't get enough of blueberries at the moment :drool:

Snack - 1 Alpen Light (1/2 HEb) + 1 pear

Dinner: Chicken (1/2 HEb) and veggie stirfry with noodles and teryaki sauce (3.5 syns) and a toffee mullerlight

Will have had 350mls of skimmed milk (HEa) and need to fit in another LC Light Triangle

It's odd having a green day after so many EE days ... I feel like i've eaten loads!!

Back to EE tomorrow me thinks!
Definitely back to EE for me today! Felt really full and bloated last night, don't know why, might give green another go later in the week and see what happens ..

So, on todays menu:
