MissMoneypenny: This time its serious!!

Hi there,

Started back on SW on Monday. Doing an eight week sponsored slim in work so have to NOT show myself up. Went to Boots on Monday for a print out of my weight. Already knew my weight and height so had a good idea of my BMI, but OMG my body fat percentage was 41%. That means I'm almost half fat - I think the other half is denial.

Anyway was working night shift Mon/Tues so heres a run down of what I've had since then. Please feel free to comment and hopefully point me in the right direction.


Monday 8th March
scrambled eggs with 3slices WW Brown Danish HEB
Jacket potato and beans
Pasta with roasted veg (Onion, red onion, peppers, mushrooms tossed in 1 tbsp blasamic vinegar and fry lite) stirred through with 4 LCL HEA
Shape yoghurt
Special K bar (4 syns)
Stir fry noodles and veg with sweet chilli sauce (approx 3 syns)

I know this is a green day but had my other HE overnight (weird I know)

Tuesday 9th March
Oats so Simple plus milk HEA + B
1 slice hot buttered toast (it was at 6am after a very long night I'd been up since 7am the previous day) guess 10 syns

Sweet thai savoury rice with egg and salad
Dark chocolate options 2syns
Chicken tikka with rice salad (boiled basmati with peas, sweetcorn, pepper, red onion, cucumber, carrot and tinned pineapple - dressing was the pineapple juice, sweet chilli dipping sauce and white wine vinegar) Made a huge big bowl so reckon no more than 2 syns per portion.
Had side salad as well.
Home made raita approx 1syn
SF raspberry jelly whisked up with total 0% yoghurt 1/2syn per portion.

Thats 5 1/2 syns for the day. Still think I'm eating too much though. Also struggling to use HEA as I drink black tea and don't like milk in cereal. Think I'll have to start having a slice of cheese on toast for supper.
Been in work Sunday and yesterday. Tend to prepare bulk meals so have the same each day (I work 12 1/2 hour shifts). I find if I'm organised I keep on track even when there are Thorntons chocolates floating round the ward.
Feel very proud of myself for resisting though!!
