    Thursday 13th May - EE

    Got up extremely early today, it was also a weird day as not at work or home.

    Pre Breakfast - Banana, natural yoghurt, strawberries and 1tsp honey (1)

    Breakfast - x2 weetabix and milk HEXAB

    Lunch - wholemeal pasta with spring onion, tomatoes, red and yellow pepper, 14 olives mmm (2) babycorn, 2 tbsp extra light mayo (1)

    Snack - banana and mullerlight

    Dinner - lean mince burgers x1 roll (5.5), SW chips, asparagus tips, carrots, runner beans, peas

    Pudding - Banana, natural yoghurt, strawberries and honey (1)

    I think I went a bit crazy today, because I could. From now on I will limit bananas to 1 (maybe 2) and try to eat when i am hungry, not because i can!!

    Looks like you are doing well so far on the menu planning.
    Congratulations on the fabulous weight loss so far. Have you lost the 100lbs with SW?
    EDIT: oops just noticed it said Lighter Life next to your profile.
    Anyways...a great loss- You must feel great!

    Thanks for the tip lou!!

    Today I went a bit crazy on my syns. however, i am not going to beat myself up about it. I will just cut back tomorrow!

    Saturday 15th May - Green Day

    Breakfast - x2 oats so simple (Hexb's) and milk from (Hexa) mixed with SS berries

    Snack: Mullerlight with Pineapple

    Lunch: Jacket potato with 1 tin beans and 84g reduced fat cheese (1 Hexa and 6 syns)

    Snacks: Cornetto 9.5 - 1/2 packet small fries macdonalds 4.5

    Dinner: stirfry with 4 quorn fillets, half jar black bean sauce 4.5, Beansprouts, red pepper, yellow pepper, chestnut mushrooms, baby sweetcorn.

    Snack: mound of banana, strawberries, berries and natural yoghurt.

    Total syns 24.5!!!!

    Things learnt today:
    -84 grams is ALOT of cheese!! Dont need that much.
    -I dont need to put everything on my plate. If I do I will eat it!
    -Get points for something before I eat it. I would never have eaten the cornetto had i known it was that many points

    Things I did right today.

    -Controlled my eating. went to mcdonalds and instead of picking and not counting, i bought a small fries to share with my little one.
    -even though i went way over on my points i didnt say 'sod it, ive blown it now'. i counted it and i will cut back by 5 points tomorrow and Monday
    - I did a salsa exercise class today. I looked like an idiot, but everything i had into it so i burned more calories.

    Hey :)

    I saw your other post so thought I'd have a little look at your diary :) it all looks good to me. You seem to be eating all good foods and eating your full 1/3 on EE days.

    I get bloated a lot when I eat too much fruit so it might be that. I listened to some good advice from fellow minimin-ers and I've started to eat 1/2 pots of Activia FF Yogurts everyday and that's really worked. I'm not as bloated anymore. I also make sure I have a lot of fluids during the day. Do you drink water/squash during the day? If not, then maybe up your intake :)

    Other than that you seem to be doing great. Keep it up :D

    Thanks Geordie, I do drink plenty of water. It's a habit I picked from my lighterlife days. I drink about 2 litres a day. I may try a few red days, and calm down on the carbs.

    I suppose my weigh in Wednesday will be the proof in the pudding!!

    Monday 17th May - Green

    Breakfast: x2 weetabix and milk with banana (Hex a & b)

    Snack: Mullerlight

    Lunch: pasta, 14 olives (2), cucumber, baby sweetcorn, cherry toms, red pepper, spring onion, 3 tbsp pesto (10.5)

    Snack: x3 alpen bars 1 Hex b and (3) mullerlight and pineapple

    Dinner: Quorn sausages, sw chips and beans

    What I have learnt today.....Dont waste 10.5 syns on pesto when it is going into a dish full of wet veg. You can hardly taste it and it is a waste of pesto and syns!!

    So far so good thanks. I'm a bit worried about my portion sizes, but as it says free, I go for it. I will worry about it when I stop losing weight lol

    I'm loving it to be honest. I'm going to see if I can do some red days this week, just to try them. But I don't know what to have for lunch!!
