Lucy1987's Food Diary

Hello :)

I'm a previous member of Slimming World and lost a stone in 2009.

I then met my boyfriend and needless to say have since gained everything I once lost.... :eek:

It's taken a long time to get started again but feel a lot more determined this time around.

I've also decided not to weigh myself and instead make sure I can get back into clothes which are currently too tight! Last time I became very obsessed with weight and was always a slow loser (i.e. it could take a month to lose 1lb) and it became disheartening.

Anyway I thought I'd start a food diary to keep me on track. I started on Monday so will stick both of those days on here too.

So I'm back again. Been lurking for a while but been back on plan for over a month now and decided to weigh myself again to give me something to aim for.

My target is 10 stone (but may go lower than that when I get there) and I am currently 10 stone 9lbs. I STS this week as star week is due any time now. I have lost around 7lbs so far.

Will attempt to keep up with my food diary again, so here goes...


Tuesday 26th April 2011 Red Day

Breakfast: Two chocolate weetabix (HEB1 + 2 syns) with semi skimmed milk (HEA1)

Lunch: Six Ryvita crackerbreads (HEB2) with three laughing cow light cheese traingles (HEA2) and ham slices

Tea: Extra lean minced beef meat loaf with butternut squash chips and roasted vegetables

Snacks: Onken fat free vanilla yoghurt, French Fries (4 syns), Apple, Mattensons Mighty Bite (1/2 syn), 6 Mikados (3 syns)

Total syns: 9 1/2

Had a nice shock this morning when my car insurance renewal arrived. They want £800, that's an increase of £300! So my second day off this week has been spent trawling price comparison sites... (My day off yesterday consisted of getting an injection...)

Foodwise has been really good. Plan to make Quorn nuggets for tea tonight. Never tried them before so hope they're good.

Wednesday 27th April 2011 Green Day

Breakfast: Two chocolate weetabix (HEB1 + 2 syns) with semi skimmed milk (HEA1)

Lunch: Quorn sausage pasta bake with 42g mozarella cheese (HEA2)

Tea: 6 Quorn Nuggets (3 syns) with SW chips and baked beans

Snacks: Vanilla Activia Yoghurt, Fibre plus bar (HEB2)

Total syns: 5

Now I've overloaded on the green days this week and will be treating myself to a carvery lunch today so will have a red day.

Saturday 7th May 2011 Red Day

Breakfast: Two chocolate weetabix (HEB1 + 2 syns) with semi skimmed milk (HEA1)

Lunch: Carvery :) Gammon and turkey (with fat removed), vegetables, yorkshire pudding (3 syns) and gravy (2 syns)

Tea:
Chicken wrapped in bacon with fat removed, topped with syn free BBQ sauce, 42g mozzarella cheese (HEA2), potato wedges (HEB2) and carrots

Snacks:
Vanilla activia yoghurt, strawberries topped with muller light yoghurt, Fibre plus bar (5.5 syns)

Total syns: 12.5

Before I started SW I used to love loads of roast potatoes when I went to the carvery. Now I have no potatoes at all. I think the yorkshire pudding makes up for it (plus I overload on the vegetables).

So I've just got in from a night out. I drank diet coke all evening, sat in the takeaway with my boyfriend and family and drove everyone home whilst they ate pizza and chips. I had nothing and rewarded myself with a fibre plus bar when I got home.

I'm a saint.
