    Green Day

    Breakfast - oats so simple and berries (5) milk hex a

    Lunch - jacket and beans with side salad - 2 mikodos (1)

    Snack - x2 alpen lights (hexb) and muller cherry layer (1.5)
    1 slice wholemeal bread with scraping of peanut butter (5?)

    Dinner - spagetti carbonara made with (100g ham, pasta, onion, garlic, mushrooms, quark, egg and parmasan hex a)

    snack (for later) - bowl of berries and yoghurt

    hex a - milk and parmasan
    hex b - alpen lights and ham
    syns - 12.5?

    I feel awful!! i have eaten way too much. i let myself get really hungry at about 4pm and just ate until the feeling passed (hence the alpen and sandwich). i then ate waaaaay too much at dinner and did not have my third. so next time i am going to halve my dinner and do some veg to go with it.

    Hiya, just seen your other post so came to look at your diary - I don't think that's too bad a day at all. You're right that there could have been more veg with your dinner, but you have had fruit and beans and a salad today so you're nearly there. The bread was probably 4 syns on Green if it was from a normal loaf, and a level tablespoon of peanut butter would be 4.5 but it sounds like you didn't have as much as that.

    But even if it was, you would still have only had 16 syns - just make sure you only have 14 tomorrow and then you've averaged it out.

    To be honest, I have been stuffing my face with food since starting SW and still lost weight. I'm eating a greater volume of food than before but it's better food, and I only eat until I'm full, which is what is reccommended.

    Don't be disheartened, you're doing fine! Xx

    Hi, read your post over on 'struggling with guilt' and thought I'd check out where you had gone wrong and basically- you haven't! Although you may be feeling a bit full and bleurgh you haven't done anything wrong, so don't worry about it! If you really feel like you've over eaten today why not try having slightly fewer syns tomorrow? Say- 10 syns rather than 15, but you really needn't worry. What did you do before SW? I'm wondering if whatever way you lost the weight so far (well done by the way!) is still a bit in your head so you feel like you're being bad but really you're not?
    Good luck anyway :)

    mucked up big time today!! i got caught in traffic. the kids were starving, i was starving i had nothing at home that would have made a quick dinner. i had every intention of stopping and getting the kids some dinner and cook my own....but once i was in that shop. i ordered a pie and had their left over chips.

    ho hum. now i know tuesdays are going to be a problem, i can prepare and make sure there is a slow cooker dinner on the go in the morning. i suppose this is all about learning.

    i have also learnt today that i can have my chinese and still have 6.8 points left for the rest of the week. SO....my new plan is....

    start again afresh tomorrow (its weigh in tomorrow as well) and only allow myself 6.5 syns a day. this means i can have exactly the chinese I want on a saturday and stay on plan.

    heres goes....

    Hi, just saw your other post and have come to have a look. I dont think your eating too much, but there could be a little more variety added. You seem to have Jacket potato virtually everyday for lunch and chips a lot too.

    Presume you have gone on to EE??

    But you said you lost 5.5lbs so it must all be going ok :)

    Have a look at other food diarys for more inspiration and search recipe forum, i post my weekly food plan for the week every sunday for other ideas.
    I also look through all my recipe books, SW and normal and online recipes and see what i can adapt for more variety.

    I try not to have the same evening meal 2 weeks running, and try to have different food at lunch every day.
    We also dont have pasta 2 days running etc.
    try to balance the whole week up
    We do stick mainly to GREEN days with hubby having a B group of Meat somedays.

    But i wouldn't panic about the quantity, unless you start to GAIN.

    So long as you are having at least 1/3 sf and you are eating until full and not until you feel sick then you are doing just fine.

    this week i am going out for dinner tomorrow and have a girlie night saturday. im going to try to stick to 5 syns per day and then take my own dinner saturday night. but if i fail to keep the motivation, i have the syns available. im also going to try and cut down on the potatoes and pasta.

    here goes......
