Lose the baby weight challenge

#1
Well hello there folks.

This is second week of a rejoin to SW. The first time I joined 3 years ago I managed to shift 5 stone. My weight has always been an issue until I found SW now I eat well and have managed to keep the weight off. But I have just had another baby, she is 6 months old and so its time to get cracking at what I know will work.

Somehow, I managed to gain 2lb in my first week on EE. You guys have explained a few things to me and I think I know where I went wrong. If you are used to green and red EE seems so difficult but I love the flexibility and so I will give it another go.

Anyhoo, enough chatter. Here we go...Extra Easy

Brekkie: Apple, banana and herbal tea with sweetener

Snack: Muller light yoghurt and and apple

Early lunch: Tuna pasta salad with spring onions, carrots, cucumber and 2 tbsp extra light Mayo (1.5 syns)

Snack: Mini stir fry with egg noodles, king prawns, chillies, celery, mushrooms and onion and 1 tbsp parmasan (1.5 syns) With Banana

Dinner: SW chips with an omelette containing grated carrots, spring onion, mushrooms, tomato and chillies.

Late evening snack (still to eat): Ready Brek (HE B) with 175ml whole milk (HE A)

1 Choccy Digestive (4.0 syns)
1 Custard Cream (3.0 syns)

Total syns: syns

Now ladies, have I done this right so far. I have made sure that I am following the 1/3 Super free rule which isn't that hard as it actually isn't that much. The ratios work quite nicely I think.

I am a massive eater, you'll see as the days go on, lol! :D

Hi Emma,

of course I don't mind, we can knock ideas about if you like.

Baby weight can be a bugger to shift but we will get there in the end. Sorry you've had a bad week, don't beat yourself up though as it happens to all of us.

How long have you been following the plan?

Hi guys,

Its nice to know there are a few more ladies in the same boat as me! Good luck! It's weigh in night tonight, so keep your fingers crossed. x

Red day today. I thought I would stick with Extra Easy but as they say, "variety is the spice of life". Besides, I kept thinking about those Morrison's sausages!

I have decided that no matter what plan I have for the day I will eat fruit and yougurt up and till lunch time. That way I can be sure to get in plenty of super free foods. Here is what I have eaten so far...

Brekkie and all snacks until lunch: Fresh Pineapple, 2 apples, 2 bananas, 1 Muller light Yoghurt (on special at Tesco, 6 pack for £3)

Late lunch (Ava and I walked to Morrison's to get the scrummy sausages, only just got back): Peppered Mackerel (1.0 syn per 28g. I had 56g so 2.0 syns), 2 scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes and 1 Morrison's Eat Smart sausage (0.5 syns).

Dinner: Two small chicken breast stuffed with Extra Light Soft Cheese, cracked black pepper and garlic. Served with carrots and broccoli.

Chocolate digestive 4.0 syns
Cookie 2.0 syns

Total syns 9.5

I have lost a grand total of 1lb. I wasn't thrilled initially but a loss is a loss and at least it means that I am doing something right!
