I think this could be really useful - get me looking properly at what I have been eating and then popping what I lost each week down. Hope it might help someone else too :)

I have been doing SW for 10 weeks, lost 2st 1lb so far. Hoping to be somewhere near 11st for Christmas and nearer 10st for my birthday June 2015.

I weigh in on a Wednesday so my week runs Weds to Weds - will also pop my syns and any body magic in there :)

Little note - I don't usually eat magic pancakes all week - they just really work for me or I get snacky mid morning, so thought I would try out having oats every day :)

I daren't even begin to put my food diary from this last week - to say I dropped off the wagon would be an understatement :( However, I have been lucky and scraped 2lbs off by the skin of my teeth. This weeks food is all planned out - so onwards and downwards! xxx
