    Hi all,
    Thought I would start up my own little diary here as I have officially started slimming world today. I'm doing sw at home with use of the start up books, willpower and of course minimins! As you can see from my signature I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant , i would maybe like to lose a little weight to begin with and more so try to maintain and just try and keep myself within set limits for gaining. Today i've started at 149lbs, a 14lb gain so far, which is 5lbs more than i've set target for :cry:.
    So just to give you all a bit of background, I had my first two little girls close together (only 1 year apart) and was obese by the time both my pregnancies had ended. I decided my body looked terrible for a 23 year old and in June 2008 did ww from home with the support of minimins. By March 2009 I had lost just over 3st (I have pictures in my albums if you want to have a wee nosey ;)) . I felt great as I'd always been chubby as a child, teenager and adult. Anyway I gave up counting points but managed to maintain my weight for just over a year and then it slowly started to pile on again. So at the start of this pregnancy I was 135lbs which is just overweight BMI so I'm trying to gain no more than 15-20lbs as recommended.
    I've been a lurker for ages so I've finally braved it to join you guys and hope I can give and receive lots of minimins support.


    Ok so todays menu (Red Day)
    Breakfast
    48g branflakes (HeB)
    Milk (HeA)

    Hi little*red

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

    looks like your doing well, but i definatly agree you should be having more syns. also you could have a syn free yogurt and save the syns from that for something better? just a thought.
    I see youve just started C25K! i did my 1st one last night, i felt my legs getting wobbily by the end, what did you think?

    Hi Lorna,
    Thanks for the advice, mucho appreciated :), i managed to get in 8.5 syns today which is an improvement. With regards to the yogurt i though because they were fat free that they would be syn free and unfortuntley had bought a pack of 6 :doh: so just trying to use them up .
    Did my second c25k today and it felt a wee bit harder than day one as my legs were still a bit sore from yesterday, looking forward to cracking on with it though.

    Hi little*red, hope you had a good weekend?! :)

    What did you think to the cottage pie? its a faveroite in our house, and always goes down well.
    I no wat you mean with the yogurts. the packaging can be soo misleading. I cant believe they can plaster fat free on them, but if you look at the nutritional info they can be 25% of your recomended daily allowance of sugar :eek:

    do you only do red days? iv only done EE but after looking at your food diary i may try a couple over this week.

    Oh Lorna the cottage pie was delishious, i forgot how much i love carrot and turnip mash!
    I'm doing this red days this week and going to try all green next week, not so sure if i'll do extra easy or just alternate between the two. I dont' like the idea of only 1 of each HE on EE, although saying that i'm a bit worried about next week incase its just far to many carbs for me. Guess i like the security of a set limit of healthy carbs on red, but i'll see how my losses (Or maintenance) go with each plan.

    Day 6 (Red Day)

    Breakfast

    oat so simple (HeB)
    milk (HeA)

    Lunch
    Omlette - 3 eggs, ham, 28g cheese (HeA), onion
    Yoo Yoghurt (2 syns)

    Dinner
    Chicken breast with courgette, onion, red pepper and fresh pineapple roasted in an oven bag with schwartz perfect mix cajun seasoning (tasted delish and would have been gorgeous with rice)
    SW Wedges (HeB)

    Snack
    Banana


    Water - 5 pints (Plain as i got a bit worried about too many sweetners in the NAS squash)
    Exercise- C25k day off

    Love your food dairy, it all looks so yummy!!

    How do you make your tikka sauce? Mine never looks like that!

    Also are the crispy quorn fillets found in the freezer or chilled section?

    Thanks! Xxx

    Thanks Nicky, i love my food and i'd get so easily bored if i didn't have different meals all the time.
    The tikka sauce recipe was basically just tikka curry powder mixed with about two tablespoons of passata and about 150ml of fat free yoghurt all heated in a pan.

    The quorn pieces are frozen, i got them in tesco they had a deal on so only £1.14 for the two, and they taste like the birdseye crispy chicken, the batter on them is really light.

    Weight day tommorrow, and still feel like i'm eating far too much to be possibly maintaining or losing weight! Also going to start an Extra easy week and getting worried about the lack of healthy extras, however i think it will help me to up my syns for the days when i'm not having enough.

    Day 7 (Green Day)

    Breakfast

    Superspeed soup

    Lunch
    SW pasta quiche - cheese and broccoli pasta & sauce, sweetcorn, ham (HeB), quark, 3 eggs
    Activia fat free yoghurt
    apple
    tangerine
    snack a jacks (6 syns)

    Dinner
    Spicy veg and rice stuffed peppers - peppers, courgette, passata, oxo, onion, rice, chilli & cayenne powder

    Snack
    2 x alpen lights (HeB)
    milky coffee (HeA)

    Water - 3 pints
    Exercise- C25k day off
