loralu's food diary

Hi i'm laura and i started slimming world on 13th july 2009. My starting weight was 12st 4lbs. My target weight is 9st 7 - 9st 10lbs (depending on how i feel when i reach it). Monday nights are my weigh nights and i will be weighing in tonight.

So far i have lost 1st 1.5lbs (until last week it was 1st 3lbs!) last week was my first gain of 1.5lbs put i had eaten a lot that i shouldn't as i was away. i would like to reach the 2st stage by 21st December which is 12.5lbs so not sure if i can achieve this!

If nobody minds i am going to start a food diary as of tomorrow (tues 3/11/09) to see if it helps as recently my motivation has been swaying!

Tuesday 3/11/09 - Red Day

Started the day with banana and natural yogurt and hot (sugar free) orange squash.

I bring my lunch to work and have brought ham, bread (heb) and a laughing cow light triangle. Snacks will be an apple and a toffee mullerlight.

I'm planning on going to the gym after work then tea is going to be pork, new potatoes (heb) and veg. Might syn a bit of gravy.

I have a few treats left i bought for trick or treaters (and didn't even get any!!) so may have one of them later. I might use it as a reward to motivate some studying!

Good morning Laura - and welcome to the forums...

Get posting regularly on here and people will be as supportive as they can

You have done so well with only 1 gain since you started and you know the reason why, so that is even better.. there is nothing worse than having a gain when you have been good !!

Have a great day and enjoy the gym

i've managed to stick to what i planned to eat to day, had 7 syns including some chocolate to reduce the stress levels!

didn't make it to the gym, after the day i had at work i just came home had tea and hit the text books!

i had a good week exercising last week so don't want to let it slip!

Sometimes life throws things at us that spoil the best laid plans...

At least you hit the text books rather than the biscuit tin....

Have another good day today and you will get there


todays been hectic! i was going to have a red day today but by lunch i didn't fancy what i took so i changed to extra easy!

B: 2 Weetabix and milk (HEA & HEB)
D: Jacket Potato and Beans
T: Shepherd Pie (topped with swede and carrot, not potato) so syns in the gravy

Not had any fruit so going to have some tonight and might have a glass of wine to relax with

Hi Laura

Well done on your weight loss, you're doing really well.

Enjoy that glass of wine!
i've had a good slimming world today. going for a red day

b: weetabix and milk (HEA & B)
s: apple and banana
d: ham and a ff yogurt with mango pineapple and melon
s: toffee mullerlight
t: chicken, mange tout & babysweetcorn stir fry

so no syns so far, maybe have the glass of wine i didn't have last night and a bacon sandwich with my other HEB

i realised for the first time last night just how much weight i had put on over the past few years (obv i knew i had put weight on but just not realised the extent of it until i tried some old clothes on) and it gave me the motivation to carry on with my slimming.

last night i had a cheese and bacon toastie (HEA & B) and two treat chocolates (6.5 syns in total) and they were my only syns all day but then i started feeling guilty for eating chocolate even though i was in my syn allowance, i need to get rid of these thoughts!

Today i've started with weetabix and 2 tsp of sugar (2 syns & hea & b)

i'm going to do an extra easy today as having gammon and sw chips for tea and pasta for dinner.

Finishing work early so might go for a swim after work

b: coco pops (HEA and 5.5)
s: alpen light (half heb going to have other later if hungry) apple, banana & clementine
l: pasta from boots (just checked the syns on slimming world website calculator and it's 9! i hope i've done it right!)
