Lisa's food diary!

Hello all!

I'm brand new to this forum, but rather experienced in Slimming World! I have attended various classes in the North East, with varying amounts of success. I first joined in October 2007 and almost 3 years on I’m pretty much the same weight I was when I started! I tend to fluctuate, and I’ll be very good then blow it all on a take aways and a few (too many) vodkas L

I’m feeling the pinch at the moment so can’t afford to attend classes, but am hoping by completing an online diary (and joining this forum!) I will be able to stick at it on my own!

So, onwards and downwards… J

Hi Lisa, welcome to minimins!!
I don't go to classes either, but the support on here is fantastic I honestly don't think you need them!
What days do you normally do? Do you stick to red or mix around a bit?
Agree about Cathedral City Lighter - I love it!! Think it's the only low fat cheese that tastes and melts really well.
Hi Sarah, thanks for the welcome :)

Usually I have a lot of Green days, but I'm trying to have a few red this week to see if it boosts my weight loss. My friend who I used to attend class with swore by a couple of red days to get you kick started again!

I just find red days quite expensive, it's a lot cheaper to stock up on pasta and rice than it is buying chicken etc.

You've done brilliantly on your weight loss so far - well done! And your signature has reminded me I really need to get back on my wii fit...

I'm new on here too. I am at Target weight now having lost 2st 4lbs this year following the slimming world principles, I didnt go to class either.
being a vegetarian I am on GREEN days only with the occasional bit of fish thrown in as a HEB.
I tweaked the plan to suit me, still with great results, steadily lost 2lbs a week so losing my weight in just 16 weeks. I only had my mums old SW books which was one A group and some cheese based foods ( mugshot creamy cheese were free) so i just stuck to 1 A group and kept those things as free.
I seem to manage to eat lots more things in a day than i have seen on various food diaries and kept to 10syns. I might start a food diary, might give someone some ideas :)

Agree that Green days are so much cheaper - and most of the time I have potatoes with my meat on red so may as well stick to EE anyway!! I do try and mix it up a bit too.
Welcome *honey too - well done for getting to target - that's amazing!
Well done on reaching target so quickly, I'll keep you in mind next time I reach for the biscuit tin! :clap:

I ruined it all yesterday by going out for drinks (very naughty on a school night) and I don't even want to think what my vodka syns would add up to... :eek:

Trying to stay on plan today (despite the hangover) so fingers crossed I don't give in to any random cravings.

Wednesday 11th August GREEN

Alpen Light bar - 3 syns

Mug shot - Sweet and Sour noodle
Ryvita Minis - Sweet Chilli HEB

Drinking on a school night is the worst!! I try to avoid at all costs as end up being so grumpy the next day!!
Good luck in getting through the day with your hangover, and don't feel so bad if you stuck to vodkas, that's pretty good!
