Hi Hun...just reading your diary.

Hellmans extra light mayo is 0.5 per table spoon.
You seem to have a lot of sugary sweet things during the day..have you tried just having some potatoes, pasta or even bananas??
Are you doing Red, Green or EE days?
You dont appear to be eating a great deal either. Dont forget the more free super food that you eat, the more weight you will loose.
Also drink plenty of water to keep you regular.

If you are doing EE days, you are only allowed 1 HeA and 1 HeB and count the syns at the lowest value.

I hope this helps and dont be put off by a photo shoot, you will have lost enough weight to make a difference by then!

I do red and green days
