    I am back after the Christmas break and also after our first wedding anniversary (yesterday). Gained almost half a stone since the start of December. Not overly gutted about that as I am viewing this as a long haul lifestyle change and my aim is to lost the weight slowly, and to be at target by my birthday in March. I had lost over a stone since August but some weight has crept back on so I now have just under a stone to go to get below the 10st target.

    Day one of being properly on track:
    B - Brown toast with banana and cinnamon "jam" (lovely!)
    L - Yoghurt and fruit (saving myself for tea time)
    D - Homemade cheesy fish pie with broccoli and carrots, meringue nest, strawberries, blueberries and yogurt for afters.
    S - WW hot choc
    Milk for tea and coffee all day

    26/26 - no weeklies

    Thanks for subscribing peeps.
    Sarah - the banana and cinnamon "jam" is just a banana mashed up with half a teaspoon of maple syrup or honey and about half a teaspoon of cinnamon. I am a carb lover so I love this kind of stuff. I usually spread it over three slices of WW/nimble bread and with a cup of coffee it does the trick for me.

    you know I could have this with my crumpet! ! do you have to use the syrup? ? just im doing simple start and cannot have the syrup x

    You could leave the honey/syrup out and maybe just add a very small drop of warm water to make the banana easier to mash. Can you have a bit of artificial sweetener such as splenda? Would consider that just to sweeten it up a bit. If not, it's just the banana and cinnamon!

    So, I went to my first WW class of the New Year and I am 3lb up since before Christmas. Absolutely fine with that. We were also talked through the SS plan, which does look good. However, having tried Slimming World and not lost, I am a bit apprehensive about giving it a go. I suppose I just have to remember to eat only when I need to, not when I fancy it!

    So, Day 3 -
    B - Weetabix, skimmed milk, large banana (chopped on top) (4)
    L - Ham, cheese, beetroot and salad sandwiches (x3 halves) on WW brown bread (6)
    D - Salmon fillet, baby potatoes, carrots, broccoli and remainder of the Xmas sprouts, topped with parsley sauce (11)
    S - Hot chocolate or skinny latte (1)
    Snacks - Yogurts x 2 (3), fruit, tea and coffee (2)

    26/26 Dailies, 0 Weeklies.

    I really thought it would be a struggle getting back on it but so far so good - no serious cravings!

    Thanks for subscribing Tiger Lilly.

    So, Day 4 and things are still going ok. I went for a jog at lunchtime but had to stop after 20 minutes due to hip pain, headache and general discomfort. Foodwise, my day is mapped out like this:
    B - Skinny latte & banana (2)
    L - Ham & cheese sandwich, loads of beetroot (getting addicted to the lovely juicy stuff) and a salad. WW Coconut yogurt (very nice) (8)
    D - Sea bass in spicy crust with coconut and lemongrass sauce (shop bought) with potatoes, carrots and broccoli (9) with meringue, yogurt and fruit (3)
    Snacks - Tea and coffee (2)

    So far 24/26 dailies, 0 weeklies. Will probably have a hot choc or something to use up the last 2 points.

    Yesterday went slightly awry when I got home. Husband and I were starving so shared half a pitta with salad and a smidge of chicken and I also ate his dessert because he didn't like the 0% greek yogurt. I ended up having 4 of my weeklies which is fine because I know I should be eating more of them. I try to save them for days when I just need more food.

    So day 5 is planning to be:
    B- WW layered fromage frais, cup of coffee, apple (2)
    L - Ham & cheese sandwich, lots of beetroot, salad, light choices vegetable cup a soup (fed of this lunch now - will plan something different for next week)
    D - Chilli, brown rice, salad. Dessert will be greek yogurt, berries, meringue.
    Snacks - fruit, tea and coffee, hot chocolate.

    26/26. O weeklies (so far)
