Kim's Food Diary

#1
Well, i am back on Slimming World after doing Lighterlife last year. I lost 3stone on LL and over Christmas and the last few months 10lbs have crept back on, so i am back on Slimming World to get rid of those 10lbs and lose the rest of the weight (plus i felt much healthier doing SW before!)

I did SW successfully a few years ago in preparation for being a bridesmaid and when it was Red and Green days. Extra Easy confuses me a bit, but i am determined to give it a go! To start i will focus on red and green to get me going!

So on to my food diary (please let me know if am doing something wrong or could do better :)):

Monday 18th April - Green Day

Breakfast: 2 weetabix (HeB) with a banana and SS Milk (HeA).

Lunch: Jacket Potato with Baked Beans, Apple and a Strawberry Mullerlight

Dinner: Omlette (made with milk) (HeA2) with a slice of Gammon (HeB), mushrooms, onions and a spoonful of baked beans.

Snacks: Tomato Mug Shot, Clementine, FF Yogurt.

Syns: Tomato Ketchup (2) 1 Cadbury Crunchie Cluster (2 syns?!)

Total Syns: 4

Hi Kim, welcome back to SW - hope it goes well for you. You diary looks good (I do green too!) but just wanted to ask - you put your omelette down as hexa, was that cos you used milk or cheese as eggs aren't a hexa? I'm sure you know that - it was just the only thing that stood out to me! Good luck x

Hi Beegee, Oh yes forgot to put down the Milk in the omlette - which was my HeA :) Thanks for pointing that out.

I get on well with green days as i am much more of a carb eater than a meat eater, but i want to give EE a go - but can't quite work out how lunch at work would work yet - need to do some meal plans and then i can give it a go! :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Hmm OK i have seriously lost the plot! I cannot stick to the diet. I need to give myself a serious:whoopass:

I don't even think i can face writing down what i've eaten, but it's NOT been SW friendly.

I plan to get back on plan Saturday (maybe a change of weigh in day will help keep me motivated at the weekend when i am most likely to cheat). I know thats 2 days away but i am out for dinner tonight and have work lunch tomorrow.

I really need to do this as i can feel my clothes getting tighter and i didn't spend 3 months not eating to put the weight all back on!

Willpower where are you....i need you more than ever!

On a side note i got on the scales this morning with a 2lb gain?!?! i am not entirely sure how or why, and trying not to get disheartened, because apart from my bad meal on saturday i think i did OK all week! hmmm...lets hope it's just the change of eating habits and it will show a good loss next week!
