    Today is my first day doing slimming world, I though a food diary might help keep me motivated. I'm planning on doing extra easy as it's the easiest to get my head around but I don't eat much meat so might be better switching to green when I get my head around it.

    Breakfast:

    2 x weetabix with hot water & skimmed milk & granulated sweener
    banana

    Lunch:

    Chicken & mushroom pasta n sauce with 1 laughing cow extra light

    Snack:

    sweet & sour noodle mug shot
    laughing cow extra light
    2 x apples, grapes
    mullerlight

    Tea:

    sw chips, egg, quorn sausages, beans, tiny bit of ketchup

    Drinks:

    tea, sugarfree squash

    I think I've eaten quite a lot today, been thinking about food a lot but hopefully I'll get used to it. The only syns I've had are the little bit of ketchup. I like a drink on weekends so I'm planning on not using too many syns during the week.

    I'm planning splitting my healthy extra a's using half the skimmed milk allowance and half the cheese allowance on laughing cow extra lights which my consultant said was ok to do. My healthy extra b will usually be weetabix as I'm a bit all or nothing with bread x

    Hi! From what I can see you're pretty much doing green anyway so why not go for that. You'll get an extra HEA and HEB! On your second day you could have taken bacon as your other HEB. I'm veggie and do green all the time so if you have any questions just ask. You only really benefit from EE if you're going to be having meat or fish regularly - more than once a day. :)

    Thanks for the tips, the mugshot idea sounds lovely thanks :)

    Yes I am basically doing green aren't I, I'm not much of a meat eater so maybe I should just do green days and then the ocassional extra easy when needed.

    On saturday I did end up going out and having quite a few vodkas so I'm not going to work out the syns but I'm sure it was over 30 so I'll just write that off!

    Well I must be doing something right as I have lost 6 and a half pounds at my first weigh in tonight. Can't tell you all how happy I am at the moment. It really gives me the motivation to carry on with it, I didn't expect such a big loss but I have been good (apart from my night out!)

    Just had a lovely tea of sw chips, quorn chicken burger and beans and might treat myself to a glass of wine or two!

    Breakfast:

    2 x weetabix, skimmed milk, chopped banana

    Lunch:

    pasta quiche with salad and tiny bit of dressing, pineapple, grapes

    Tea:

    Probably jacket potato with beans, salad and a quorn chicken burger (2 syns) will edit later if this changes

    Snacks:

    mullerlight, fruit, I have been really fancying some chocolate the last day or 2 so I'm going to treat myself to a curly wurly tonight if I still want it.

    I made a lovely quiche last night, I really can't believe how yummy it is. I'm pleased I made it too as it's my son's birthday on the weekend and we are having a little get together for family and friends and I was looking for something sw friendly and yummy to make for me and my sister who is also doing sw. In case anyone is interested, this is how I made it:

    Made up pasta n sauce - (cheese, leek and ham flavour but sure it would be nice with others) poured this into bottom of dish,
    Chopped up and gently fried in frylite spring onions, mushrooms and ham and placed on top of pasta,
    Whisked 3 eggs with 150g very low fat cottage cheese and poured the mixture over top of pasta/veg and then placed chopped cherry tomatoes on the top
    placed in hot oven for about 35 mins

    I just checked and the quiche is only 1 syn for the whole thing, woohooo!

    Breakfast:

    big bowl of fruit salad - pineapple, banana and apple

    Brunch:

    bacon, quorn sausage, tomato, mushrooms, beans (little bit of ketchup 1 syn)

    Snacks:

    sw pasta quiche, hard boiled egg, apple, mullerlight, hi fi bar (he b)

    Not sure yet but thinking maybe sw chips, quorn chicken style burger and beans

    I really enjoyed my curly wurly last night, it was the first bit of choccie I've had since starting and it was lovely! I have some more there so I might have another one tonight, if not I'll probably have a glass of wine (about 6 syns)

    I only ended up having half a curly wurly last night (3 syns) and no quorn burger just home made potato wedges and beans. I thought it was wise to save some syns for this weekend.

    Well this weekend is going to be a challenge for me I think, it's my son's birthday and we are taking him shopping to choose his birthday present today and he wants to go to mcdonalds or kfc so my plan is to have something big to eat before going and then hopefully I will just do some shopping while they are eating! I think it would be just too tempting if I watch them eat!

    Then tonight I'm going out with some friends. I'm not too worried about the drinking as I had quite a few last weekend and still had a great loss and I haven't used too many syns in the week so I'll just make sure I stick to wine or vodka and avoid the kebab shop on the way home!

    Then tomorrow it's my sons party, which I'm doing at home. So lots of party food to tempt me but I'm going to do a few sw friendly things (quiche etc) so that I have something to nibble on.


    breakfast:

    big bowl of fruit (banana, pineapple and apple)

    lunch:

    tesco couscous (1 syn) with salad and dressing (1 syn) hard boiled egg

    tea:

    grilled chicken salad from mcdonalds without dressing (2 syns)

    snacks:

    hifi bar (heb), fruit, mugshot

    milk in my tea/coffee (hea)

    drinks - vodka and wine (lots of syns!)

    sw quiche (1 syn)
    mini quorn sausages - not sure of the syns but will be very low if any
    bbq quorn fillets - again not sure of syns
    hard boiled egg
    pickled onion and pineapple
    quorn ham
    laughing cow light triangles (he)

    and ended up having a few more wines mixed with diet lemonade
