    I think keeping a note of things will really help me stay on track so going to try and keep this diary up to date.:)

    Quick background - I joined WW (monthly pass) then the day before my FIRST weigh in (April 2010) was taken to hospital and had emergency surgery :( which has meant everything kind of fell by the wayside as I was recovering - with a 5 month old and 3 year old too things weren't easy! WW were great when I got in touch about refunding my monthly pass amount, I will rejoin the classes too when I can but for now I am going to use this site plus WW one for recipes and see how I get on. I NEED to lose the baby weight!

    Shall update later on with my day's food. I think i will be using this site a lot for advice/info!

    My points are 26 per day, as I am still breastfeeding my daughter too so it says I still get 5 extra points?! :D Will see how I go with that but may cut that down a little further if the weight isn't budging as I want it too!

    If people have any advice for me please feel free to add to this for me too!

    Monday 14/6

    Not a great day today...was really quite hungry in evening so was snacking! Still inside points, but I'm just wary of the extra 5 points I get for breastfeeding but we'll see how things go....


    B - Oats So Simple - 2.5pts

    L - Turkey sandwich - 4pts, Scone & jam - 3.5 pts, Nectarine - 0.5 pts

    D - Sweet and Sour Ready Meal - 5 pts

    Snacks

    Snack a Jacks - 1.5pts
    Go ahead Fruit Bake - 2.5pts
    Go ahead Crispy Slices - 3 pts
    Curly Wurly - 2.5 pts


    Total = 25 pts
    Saved = 1 pt

    I've also started keeping track of my points on iWatchr on my iPhone which is great when out and about, has a points calculator etc on it too. Should help me not underestimate points of things or forget something I have eaten! :D

    Thanks chick. :) I'm trying, here's hoping for a good loss to keep me motivated!


    Tuesday 15/6/10

    B - 2 slice wholemeal toast, 1 banana, WW yoghurt - 4.5 pts

    L - Pitta, turkey, salad, humous - 5 pts, Snack a Jacks - 1.5 pts

    Milk in tea - 1 pt


    Snacks

    Am stuffed tonight after my dinner, was sooo yummy! I think I need to make sure I plan better dinners like that when I can - the ready meals are good as a stand by, or if caught short before going shopping but after a wee while I'm then really hungry and end up snacking when the kids are in bed....need to write a menu plan for the week I think and keep organised with it!

    BBQ sauce recipe

    Found it on this site! :)

    Ingredients

    1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
    1 tsp mild chilli powder
    227ml/8fl oz passata
    3 tbsp artifical sweetener
    4 tbsp balsamac vinegar
    1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    1/2 tsp mustard powder
    salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Balsalmic vinegar and worchestershire sauce provide the basis for this great tasting bbq sauce that is perfect for a dip, basting a chicken thighs or vegetable kebabs before a BBQ.


    Spray a pan with fry light and saute the onion and chilli powder over a low heat for 5 minutes until softened.


    Stir in the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until thickened. Check the seasoning before serving hot or cold.


    Ready in 20 minutes, serves 4 and freezer friendly.

    Meant to add, it's tasty and versatile, can be put on lots of different things - chicken, kebabs, sausages etc.

    I like dishes with sauces on and most contain lots of sugar etc but this is a good alternative!

    And of course....0 point!:D

    No, you simmer it for about 20 mins and it thickens up. Give it a bash, it's tasty. x

    L - Melon portion (1), chicken skewer, small portion rice, salad (4), meringue nest (0.5) with cream (2) and mixed berries (0.5)

    So 8 points in total?? Also had some ginger beer on way home (shared with DP) which was prob around 1 point.

    I know, haven't even had one yet but DP has made a dent in the box! Only 2 points each :D I like them as a treat as they are actually like a proper biscuit/sweet iykwim rather than a Go Ahead one or whatever, lol!

Will adjust points tomorrow accordingly....plus I had some left over from earlier in the week so hoping it hasn't affected things too much....time will tell on Saturday I guess!

    Just want to put this here so I don't forget about it!


    Roasted Tomato Spaghetti

    Serves 4
    5.5 points

    • low fat cooking spray
    • 750g cherry tomatoes
    • 8 garlic cloves, unpeeled
    • 2tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 225g dried spaghetti
    • 4tbs shredded fresh basil leaves
    • 2tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 125g pack light mozzarella, drained and chopped roughly
    Pre heat the oven at gas mark 7. Line a roasting tin with foil and mist with low fat spray. Place the tomatoes and garlic in the tin and drizzle the olive oil, swirling the tin around to coat the tomatoes. Roast for 20 minutes until the tomatoes are just charred and split.

    Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 10-12 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly.

    Remove the garlic cloves from the roasting tin and set them aside to cool slightly. Mix the tomatoes, pasta and basil together in a pan, season and reheat on the hob.

    Squeeze the garlic from its skin - it will be quite soft - and mix with the balsamic vinegar. Stir the garlic misture into the pasta with the chopped mozzarella. Leave it for 2 minutes so that the heat melts the mozzarella, then serve.
