    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!

    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.

    :)

    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.

    Weigh in day today for me and Im showing a drop of 4.1/2lbs ... Yay! But I woke up feeling very bloated, not sure why but hope it subsides soon?!

    Tuesday 05/04/2011 - Extra Easy
    B: 2 scrambled eggs on hovis brown bread 400g (hexb) with a tiny bit of clover butter (1.5 syns)
    L: nothing (naughty)
    D: spaghetti bolognese made with mince, tin toms, mushrooms, peppers, carrots, bovril, pasta
    Snacks: banana, 2 boiled eggs
    Drinks: cup of tea, water, coke zero
    Syns: strawberry yogurt x 2 (6 syns)
    curly wurly (6 syns)
    babybel light (2 syns)
    Exercise: none

    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?!
