Lar's Journey to slimdom

Well thought I would join the rest of you with an online diary of my own.

Rejoined for the 1**th time, not sure how many times but it is a lot and every time I say this is the time I will do it but this is the time I WILL DO IT.

Just came back from a lovely holiday and the sea was lovely and blue but because I thought they might harpoon me if I went into the sea I have decided to spend the next year getting the figure I feel confortable with and will go back into the sea with confidence when I go back next year.

Food for the day:

Breakfast - 2 weetabix with blueberries/mango/raspberries and strawberries. Was delish.

Lunch - jacket potato/salad and beans

Tea: Spanish Omelette with salad/beetroot and sweetcorn.

Home made yogurt icecream with fruit

Syns: Dressings/packet of rivita minis and cottage cheese

Lots of water/tea milk from allowance.

Having just returned from an All Inclusive Holiday my stomach thinks it has done something wrong cos its having withdrawal symptoms from the cakes and cocktails .

Went to class on Thursday and had put 1lb on which isnt a lot but it is one step in the wrong direction. One of my friends has lost 22lbs in 4 weeks with WW and here's me putting it on :0(

Work has been so so busy and stressful and covering for, well it seems like everybody at the moment!! hence why I have not stuck to plan cos when I am stressed all I want to do is eat, gotta snap out of it before it is 1/2 stone. Managed to get to class which wasnt easy seeing as I only had 1/2 an hour for lunch and the class is 10 mins away but managed it just for a weigh-in. The class was practically empty but the leader was so busy gossiping with her friends she didnt even say hello so feel a bit fed up with her class and feel like jacking it all in :eek:(

Anyway today's food.

2 Oatibix (3) with a banana.

lunch: McCain jacket potato (1) with Asda Veg chilli
WW yogurt

Tea will be pork chop no fat, broccoli, carrots, potato and peas


pkt cheese curls (4 1/2) mug shot (F)

so total syns so far 8 1/2
Have not been to class or followed the plan for a while but today is "another" fresh start.

Decided to go to a different class and try a different leader and what a lovely class and consultant. She was full of excitement about the class and everyone seemed to be so positive instead of what I had with my last class.

Today's food:

Breakfast: 2 weetabix with a banana
lunch: Two slices of lean ham, small jacket potato, large salad, beetroot and cottage cheese.
Tea: will be - homemade turkey and leek burgers, with salad and potato wedges. Sugar free jelly, raspberries and ww yogurt.

Anyone advise me on whether this sounds ok???

maybe too many bananas :(
Hi :) I wouldn't worry about the too many bananas unless you're not losing weight. They can slow some people down but not everyone :) x
1st weigh in

Well today was my first weigh in at my new class and I lost 5 1/2lbs and I was really happy with that and I havent starved or been 100% all of the time.

Need to keep up the momentum and have a weightloss of 1 1/2 at least next week to get to my 1/2 stone target.
