    I started following SW at home on 3rd January 2014. I have been a member of SW twice before in previous years so I have a book and loads of magazines for inspiration. I usually get sick of dieting after a few months, so I am hoping that by making small changes to my eating habits whilst not feeling deprived I can lose weight, albeit slowly. i am generally aiming for 1lb each week. I don't have the time or inclination to exercise and know that this will slow down my weight loss but I can live with that.

    i love reading other peoples diaries and thought I should really do my own.

    Monday 10th Feb

    breakfast: bran flakes, skimmed milk, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes

    lunch: JP with salad, carrots and sweet corn tsp mayo (2syns)

    dinner: pasta bake and salad with garlic mayo (4syns) sauce made from onions, peppers, tinned toms, garlic and chilli

    snacks: 2 yoghurts (tesco healthy living fat free Greek style, mango and passion fruit) no idea if they have syns, but have guessed at 0.5 each one. Banana. Tea/ coffee with sweetener and milk. Sugar free vimto.

    Hi Lindsey, if you go to settings (which is next to log out) click on that, then in the left hand panel you will see `edit my signature' click on that, then in the edit box insert the http link to your diary (which you need to copy paste) and press save, it should work. Hope this helps :)

    Hi Emma,
    thanks for looking at that. I was a bit concerned that they could have been loads more but had to eat them once I bought them. I am loving the muller light Greek style. They are bogof at my Tescos at the moment.

    Hi Lindsey, hope you having a nice day :) . I love the muller greek style yogurts too, have you tried the coconut one, they are gorgeous. You can have them as dessert, or if you like currys then you can add one to make a SW style Korma curry, it's delicious .

    Hi Lindsey!! Thanks for pointing me at your diary - I hadn't noticed that you had added a link in your signature, doh! :D

    I am doing the same as you, if I lose 1lb a week I am happy and by the time I am at target I feel that eating healthily will be second nature, I already find that I make healthier choices than I would have without really thinking about it. I also love searching for new low syn treats! :)

    What a day! Weather is just awful, wind, rain, cold. At least we are not close enough to the Thames to be affected by the floods.

    I have got loads to do, ironing, cleaning but can't get motivated. Will be panicking to get everything done last minute as we go to Butlins for the weekend on Friday when kids finish school. Looking forward to some family time. Just hope the weather gets a bit better.

    Wednesday 12th February - EE

    breakfast: branflakes, slimmed milk, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes

    lunch: JP salad

    dinner: chilli with rice (extra lean mince, tinned toms, onions, peppers, carrots, courgettes, kidney beans)

    snacks: banana, orange, ff Greek yoghurt (1/2syn) chocolate biscuit (5syns)

    chilli was was nice, but made it a bit too spicy!

    hope everyone has had a good day.

    Thanks Kay. I don't feel any different this week so I just hope I manage my 1lb goal, of. Course more would be great, but not holding my breathe. My jeans aren't uncomfortable any more so that's a positive!

    My tummy is starting to rumble. No idea why, had big bowl of chilli and rice, an orange , a yoghurt and a biscuit at tea time! I am sure it is psychological as I would never eat that much after dinner normally! Anyway, not eating anything else so am going to have a coffee, a bath and go to bed!
