ProPoints Less skinny jeans, more lumpy sausages!

Okay my skinny jeans are getting a bit (okay a lot) too tight, and they are less skinny and more lumpy if I am honest! Time to get back on track.

Just a bit of background about me. I started dieting about 14 months ago. I had a great goal - my wedding in May 2012. I managed to get just a few lbs away from my target, lost 2 stone and could comfortably wear a size 10. Happy days! I have weightwatchers to thank for that, The first diet I have ever been able to follow for more than 1 week.

I was so happy to be slim again. I reached 9st 9lb and was happy with this, although I had set my target at 9st 6lb. I stopped doing weightwatchers but managed to maintain this weight until Christmas when it all suddenly caught up with me. A combination of slipping back into bad habits and the effect of the miserable weather have had me yo-yo-ing around 10st 7lb. I am currently 10st 2lb.

I need to get this under control before it gets oout of hand. I know now that I can't let things slide. I never want to be fat again. I want to be able to look at pictures of me without cringing with embarassment.

Most of all I need to be able to wear a bikini on my holiday at the end of June without feeling like a bloater compared to my friend. She also does ww but has much better willpower than me, and hovers around a size 8.

So I think a diary will help me to stay on track. I hate to confess defeat...so posting regularly should help. If I vanish you know I am too ashamed to post!

What can I offer you? Well I like to cook from scratch, and have taken time to tweak some standard recipes in order to create WW friendly versions. I swear some are even better than the originals! I hope I can share some recipes and pick up some new ones along the way.

So today's food so far and planned for dinner:

Breakfast: Nestle Breakfast biscuits 5PP
Lunch: WW Wrap with Ham and LF Philly 5PP
2 Satsumas

Would have had a banana but it was all squishy.

Now I am starving. Not having dinner til 7.30 but that will be:

LF Chicken Kiev 8PP
Potatoes 150g 3PP
Roast Courgettes, garlic and peppers 0PP

That leaves me with 4 spares...need to fill myself up with something before dinner, but not so much it puts me off my tea. Not sure yet.

Ps I have given up chocolate and crisps for 1 month also.

No chocolate or crisps and within my points so I am pleased.

Made brocolli and stilton soup for work lunches. 3pp per serving. Plus extra thin pizza bases which work out at 8pp per base.

Day 2 going well so far.

Breakfast
Nestle Breakfast Biscuits 5PP

Lunch
Brocolli & Stilton Soup 3PP
2 crispbreads 2PP
1 Laughing Cow 1PP

Snack
Graze Lemon & Poppy Seed Cake 3PP
2 Satsumas

Dinner
1 Pizza base 8PP
Light Mozzarella 2PP
Parmesan 1PP
Prosciutto 1PP
Red Onion 0PP
HM Pizza Sauce 0PP

That is 26 PP exactly, but I am planning on going to Zumba tonight which will earn me 4 spares. I may or may not need them, but it's nice to have a buffer!

I got my weight wrong by the way. I weighed myself yesterday eve and was 10st 6lb. I had guessed at 10st 2lb. I know my weight is always higher in the evening so jumped on again this morning, and was 10st 4lb so will go with that... A bit more work to do than I thought, but will be happy to get to 10st 1lb this week if I can.

Hello....

I am new to the forum but not new to WW. Been doing it a while but so want to finish it this summer so have about a stone to lose.

Noticed your food diary, have you thought of using a tortilla as a pizza base? A lot of people use the warburton square wraps. I don't eat cheese but i make them topped with lots of veg and some chicken. Pop them under the grill until warm and crispy at the edges. Then top with salad.... Mmmmmm... I know others bake them in the oven so the base gets crispier.

Back on track

Just found my old diary. Wow has it been that long since I took this seriously?!

It's scary that I am now 10st 11lb and have more work to do to reach my goal. I am determined though and so sick of my clothes not fitting.

Today's food has been:

Breakfast:

Ryvita cheese crispbread x 2 (1PP)
Laughing cow x 2 (1PP)
Tomatoes (0PP)

Lunch:

Warburtons Half & Half Bread x 2 (5PP)
Quorn sausages x 2 (3PP)
Tom Ketchup (0PP)
Onions (0PP)
WW Yogurt (1PP)

Dinner:

Asda Indian Chicken Open Chapati (10PP)

Snacks:

Fruit
Cadburys Crème Egg (planned for later) (5PP)

= 26 PP

No room for manoeuvre here, but today was sort of built around the sausage sandwich. Yesterday I had a small cheese salad sandwich and was starving by 3pm, so trying a bigger lunch and an extra piece of fruit to see if it gets me through the day better.

I still have all my weeklies, and 4 activity points left.

Hi Sweet as Pie, thanks for subscribing. Weight has gone up and down quite a lot since April, but this is the highest it has got to since I started weightwatchers. I started out about 2 years ago at over 12st and determined not to let it get back to that again!

You seem to be able to keep going consistently, which is great! Do you have a diary?

I will dig out your diary and subscribe sweet as pie and thanks for subscribing Shez, you are not far away from my weight when I first started weightwatchers, with the same goal I had. I did it from starting in the January to my wedding day on 12th May, so you will be there in no time at all!

Today eating is:

Breakfast:

6 x melba toasts (2PP)
2 x Laughing Cow (1PP)

Lunch:

Warburtons roll (4PP)
Ham (1PP)
Mayo (1PP)
Salad (0PP)
WW Yogurt (1PP)

Dinner:

TBC

Snacks:

Walkers French Fries (2PP)
Lots of Fruit (0PP)

That's 12 used of my 26 leaving 14. I usually try to save 5 for choc, but may have to downgrade to a chomp or something depending on dinner.

I don 't like not having a plan for dinner and I am a little bit concerned as I have to go out within 15 mins of getting in tonight, and won't be back until at least 9pm. No idea when/what I will have for dinner. Always dangerous territory!

Trying to decide when to weigh in. My usual weigh in day was a Thursday. I haven't weighed in officially this week, as only started again n Monday. I had a sneaky look and am 2lb down which is great though! Thinking of hanging on now until my next official weigh in next Thursday. It means my weeklies will need to stretch to then, but that's okay. Tonight is pizza night!! I make very thin pizza bases using dough I make in the breadmaker. The pizza base works out as around 8PP then I can add lots of toppings!! Worst it will be is 15PP which is probably manageable without even using my weeklies!! Plan for today: Breakfast Ryvita cheese crispbread x 2 (1PP) Dairylea light x 1 (1PP) Lunch Brocolli and stilton soup (4PP) Dinner: Pizza (15pp)
Anytime:
Quavers (2pp)
Quality at (7pp)
Creme egg (5pp)

Update:

All in all not too bad. I have 43 weeklies left.

Well I learnt my lesson about scale peeking...the next day I had a phantom 4lb showing!! You would think I would have stopped there, but nno! The next day I had to check to make sure the phantom 4lb had vanished (which they had...phew!) However I dropped the scales on my toe! Ouch!! That's karma for you!

Promised myself I won't look again now until Thursday which I have decided will be my weigh in day!

Weekend has been great!

Pizza Friday, bacon and cream cheese bagel Saturday morning, a chocolate cake, homemade turkey pie with filo pastry for dinner, and a full carvery roast on sunday, with a starter of pate and toast. All covered and allowed for in my weeklies. (It seems too good to be true but all pointed meticulously!)

That's good eating! Now to knuckle down for the rest of the week!!

Today:

Breakfast:

Melba toast x 6 (2PP)
Laughing Cow x 2 (1PP)

Lunch:

Warburtons half and half wrap (3PP)
Chorizo slice x 2 (1PP)
Salami slice x 2 (2PP)
Lowlow spicy cheese (1PP)
WW Yogurt (1PP)

Dinner:

Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni (8PP)

Snacks

Fruit

Crème egg (5PP)

That leaves me 2 spares plus I will earn x4 AP's for Zumba!

Me again,

Having a hungry day today which is a pain as I have used up all my weeklies and AP's now. Although I had earned 4 yesterday, I tracked them and used them on Sunday!

Got to get to Thursday. It will be fine I am sure! The problem is I didn't start on a Thursday which is my weigh in day, so making my weekly points stretch for more than a week!

Hoping to get out for a bit of power walking as well later, so that will be 3 more AP's.

Todays food:

Breakfast:

Cheese cracker x 2 (1PP)
Lowlow cheese (1PP)

Lunch

Ham wrap (6PP)
WW Yog (1PP)

Dinner: (looking forward to this!)

HM burger in a bun (8PP, might be less, will know once I have made them!)
Slice of cheese (1PP)
Fried onions (0PP) love frylight!
Chips done with frylight (slimming world chips) (3PP)

Snacks:

Fruit and peppers
Crème egg (5PP)

Takes me to exactly 26 so no room for any more snacking except fruit. Have my lovely crème egg to look forward to later though!

Well the results are in...

3lb loss so 10st 8lb. To be fair that is over 10 days because of when I started, but I am happy with that.

Still annoyed with myself that I am losing weight I have allowed myself to put back on after putting in so much effort to lose it, but trying to get over that and concentrate on the task in hand!

Todays food will be:

Breakfast:

Banana
Yogurt (1PP)

(keeping it light as need points for my nice dinner!)

Lunch:

WW Petit pain (3PP)
Low fat cheese and onion s/w filler (2PP)
Fruit

Dinner:

Tesco finest low fat pizza (13PP)
Slice of prosciutto to go on top! (1PP)

Snacks:

Crème Egg (5PP)

That leaves me 1 spare, but I am power walking tonight so will also earn 3 from that.
