    Hello all you lovely lads & lasses. Hope you all had a fab Xmas and are raring to go in 2010. I am on cloud nine cos my Norm came out of hospital today and is loads better, so I can get my head round the diet and exercise etc. I've decided that even with your support I need to go to a class to maximise my chance of success so I am joining SW on Monday. I got a card through the post offering free joining if you pay for 12 weeks, I might do that to force myself to go to meetings. Does anyone know how much 12 weeks costs? I've still got some Chrissy pres money from Aunties etc., so I could use that. Anyway, I'll be logging on more frequently from now on to see how you're all doing. Kisses.

    If you like cooking the recipes for Slimming World are pretty good. My mum isn't in SW but she does buy the magazine which has loads of recipes in it!

    Just got back from joining SW and am super-psyched, they've got this plan called 'extra easy' and its kind of a combination of red + green. Sounded quite easy to follow so I'm gonna give it a go. I paid for 12 weeks up front so I'll have to go to meetings or I lose out. Anyway, I've only gained 2 1/2 lbs since I stopped taking the tabs a few weeks ago which makes my weight now 215 1/2 lbs, I'll update my tracker when I remember how.

    Food Diary Day 4

    Breakfast : cereal, milk
    Lunch : Ham, pease pudding, salad
    Dinner : Home made shepherds pie, (fat removed), broccoli, carrots, green beans.
    Snacks : apple, pineapple, banana

    I am finding it quite easy to stick to EE but I think my portions are too big, apart from the cereal (28g) I am not weighing anything and eating till I'm full. I am making sure I'm having 5 f&v and drinking plenty of water though, so thats good.

    Thanks everyone, sw class is at 5.15 so I'll post the result when I get back. I'm gonna force myself to stay for the entire meeting, apparently the most successful losers do. Anyway I feel really fat today, so I'll be pleased if I lose anything at all.

    Back from 1st weigh-in at SW and I've lost 2 1/2lbs, I'm very pleased with this as it means I'm back to where I was at the end of November when I stopped dieting and taking meds. I'll start the Xenical again tomorrow now that I know the fundamentals of the diet, and that I am not having too much fat. See you all tommorow. Lizzie

    Food Diary - Day one
    Breakfast : 28g porridge oats, milk, kiwi fruit, nectarine.
    Lunch : Home made chicken & veg broth with pulses. (Very filling)
    Dinner : Home made lamb curry, rice
    Snacks : 1/2 packet batchelors pasta & sauce
    banana, 1/2 grapefruit
    2x vodka & slimline (8 syns)

    syns left for week 62

    Feel like I've pigged out today, very full indeed. Shouldnt have had the pasta & sauce but I wanted to try it (without milk or butter). Was OK but I threw 1/2 away and made the curry instead, which was yummy.

    Snacks : 1/4 pineapple, 1 apple, 1/2 grapefruit, 1 carrot.
    56g cheese - 1/2 as H.ex.a, -1/2 as syns (6 syns)

    I feel very pigged out again today, I think I'm gonna have smaller portions, I keep eating till I'm stuffed because its free food. Can't be right. Also, must get some exercise, I'm not even walking at the moment because of the weather.
