Hello :)

My name is Amy, I'm 26 years old and in 5 weeks I will be going to Australia for a year. In 5 weeks I'd like to lose a minimum of 6 pounds!

I started the slimming world diet about 4 years ago and went from 13st 8 to 9st 5. It took me around a year to lose just over 4 stone as I kept losing weight then giving myself cheat days and then I'll gain some pounds back and the whole circle would start again. I came off the slimming world diet once I hit my target and remained lower end of 9stone. I now am 9st 11 and would love to see 9st 5 on the scales once again and actually remain there.

I thought I'd join minimins and start writing down my food as I feel I can't cheat this way. Plus I have made a commitment to myself that I need to do this and actually stick to it.

Here's to remaining on plan and writing down everything I eat eekk! Willpower please show yourself.

Liquorice tea is certainly different. Not sure whether I like it or not. I've got 19 tea bags to use up, maybe I can give them to the girls at work hehe.

Dinner was very random tonight, I went to the gym after work and then I'm meeting my friend at 8 so I put 2 cod plain fillets in the oven and I'm currently eating a onion and mushroom omelette using 3 eggs. I have had a tbsp of tomato sauce which I believe is 1 syn?

I'm willing my oven to hurry up so I can scoff my cod down and out the door.

Snacks
Alpen light x 2
30g of cheddar cheese (other HEA)
Depending on when I get home I'm hoping for a Milky Way and cup of herbal tea in bed.

Syns for the day - 7 syns if I have the Milky Way

I am enjoying my food more this week and I'm feeling so full after every meal. It is worrying though how much I'm eating and I am expecting to lose weight though. We'll see what happens on the scales on Monday morning eekk.

I remember feeling like this when I was doing slimming world a few years ago and thought surely I can't lose weight but I did so :p

Nearly the weekend yayy!

I'm sat on the sofa eating a bowl of frozen summer fruits catching up on homeland. I hope this season is better than the last one!

I have slimming world chips in the oven and I'll have 4 quorn sausages with them at 4 syns and mushy peas with a tbsp of tomato sauce (1 syn).

Dessert will be a Milky Way (5 syns) I've been over synning them :) it's a 21.5g Milky Way bar. I'm hoping it's 5 syns. Can anyone confirm this?

Breakfast
1 quorn sausage
2 eggs
Mushrooms
Fried tomatoes

Lunch
4 x Dark rye ryvita (HEB)
4 laughing cow lights (HEA)
Tuna
Apple
Banana

Dinner
I'm planning a 3 course slimming world meal for my man :candledinner:
Carrot, onion and leek soup to start
Beef bourguignon with swede mash (Found a recipe on the slimming world website) It's 1.5 syns per serving. I'm planning on putting it all in the slow cooker and hoping the best ha. Surely I can't go wrong following a recipe!
Dessert is going to be eton mess (I'm thinking the syns will depend on the meringues I find)

I would like to keep the day low syn if I can as I may have a glass of wine or two over dinner! Or I may opt for a gin and slimline tonic :)

If I can make my 3 course meal a success I will be a happy girly.. Me and cooking do not go hand in hand so wish me luck :giggle:

My breakfast changed to 35g porridge oats (HEB), 350ml skimmed milk (HEA), banana and cinnamon

Lunch was 4 dark rye ryvita (HEB), 4 laughing cow light blue, tuna, apple. Muller light inspired by Bali coconut with a hint of lime. Yum!

My dinner is in the slow cooker and I'm praying to the food gods that it cooks and tastes amazing !

Thanks Hun. I'm dubious that the slow cooker will actually work. It is smelling good so hoping it's taste good and we both don't get poisoned ha!
