Welcome! Looks good so far, however, I started just over a week ago so am relatively new to this as well, sure someone will come along who is more knowledgable and give it the once over for you.

So far I have just stuck to the Extra Easy plan and am doing well so far, but still very early days. I will keep an eye out for you and see how you are doing. Good luck!
Hi Jessie, thanks for the welcome, I hope I can do as well as you have on the first week, 6.5lbs is fab!!

1 Poached egg & 1 slice of bacon with mushrooms on salad leaves, tomato, beetroot & baked beans
D: 2 slices of bacon, mushrooms, half tin of chopped toms, salad leaves, beetroot
Snacks: pear, apple, strawberries, 1 babybel cheese (part of hexa), banana

Lot of bacon there I know, wasnt supposed to be like that .... it was a make do meal for dinner after my chicken smelt bad and decided best not to cook it ..... I want to lose weight but ideally not through food poisoning!!

Thankyou! Just remember eat plenty, don't go hungry, snack on free foods and make sure you have 1/3 of your plate filled with superfree foods.
Hi Miss Brownie,

Welcome to SW....you're diary looks great...the only thing I can suggest is that you can get some very nice yoghurt that is syn free therefore you wouldn't have to waste your syns on yoghurt! Check out this thread http://www.minimins.com/syn-values/121314-syn-free-yoghurts.html

Also the bacon is fine as long as you remove the fat.

Good job, keep it up!!
Hi dawnwynne, thanks for the welcome and for pointing me in the right direction for the yogurts ..... cant believe it didnt cross my mind to check for a free version instead of buying my usual.

So glad minimin-ers are here to give help and support, that was my only worry about not going to a class and doing it online, was that I would miss out on handy tips and the do's and dont's. So much to take on board, Im getting there slowly thanks to lovely people here though.

Hi Jessie,

Ive had a busy day at my childrens school as Ive been helping out with an event there, my food planning and timing went out the window and I havent eaten hardly anything today, the only food there was cake! Didnt have any! Not long got back and will now be making sure the rest of my day goes to plan.

Hope you've had a good day??

I made a boo-boo when I went shopping today, I bought what I thought was syn free yogurts but once I got home and double checked realised Id bought the wrong ones!! I bought fat free and thought they were better than the low fat ones I had been having but, turns out they are higher syns. I live and learn.

Hmmmm, have been thinking about my bloated-ness today. Im thinking that the problem could lie in the lack of liquid I had yesterday and today (oops) I normally drink quite well but for some reason Ive had hardly anything?? I am going to have to make sure I drink enough!!!

Feeling a bit hungry this evening, serves me right for missing lunch again, going to have to get better organised! Also need to look into low syn snacks, I like the fruit but I want something else and the curly wurlys are ok but need something different?!
