    Dubchick81 Finally Pregnant!!

    Hi there,
    So, after 2 years (to the day!) of Weight Watchers and 31Lb down, I've decided to shake things up a bit and come over to the dark side... I've love every minute of Weight Watchers and I've not stopped losing, but I've become too "used" to it and want something new to keep me entertained and interested in getting to a healthy weight.. I have exactly 1 stone to lose to get to the hi end of a "healthy BMI" so my first aim, altho I'll take it a pound at a time, is to lose a stone.. If/when I get there i'll see how comfortable I feel and decided if I want to lose more.. At the moment I feel like I'll need to drop more than a stone to feel comfortable but who knows... I'll see when I get there...

    There's no class near me until next Thursday but I don't want to wait til then to start so I'm going it alone for now so will be trawling this site no doubt and throwing questions out left, right and centre until I can get to class and get my books..

    So here goes... I'll post my food diary on here the each morning for the day before.. So tomoro morning I'll post todays intake.. Wish me luck :D

    Very welcome :)
    I think most took a little diet break for the Christmas period.. Main thing is being back on track now, and you are.. So well done :)
    Am glad to hear you're preferring this after being on WW so long.. I'm the same.. I started on WW Jan 2011 and been doing it since.. Little blips here n there but not long ones n never really gave up.. So wanting to shake things up a little and looking forward to the new experience :)
    Very welcome hunnie :)
    So where would I have used syns in that then? Or what am I allowed n not allowed?
    PS.. Sandwich didn't have butter as i only use it now on toast n really dry filling sandwiches.. Unnecassary calories ;)
    Also my sandwich didn't end up having tomato, cucumber or onion coz I was too lazy to cut it when I got back to the office (had to pop out to have my fringe cut as I was looking like a shaggy dog it was so long)

    Another Q (til I get me books) How do I work out syn values and am I right thinking i'm allowed between 5 n 15 per day??

    Have you got the books ?

    If your doing extra easy then you get one hex a and one hexb so you could have the porridge as you a and milk as the b but you would have to syn your lunch? or the other way round... and the honey on your chicken

    Hi hunnie.. Very welcome :)
    How you getting on?
    Was researching Slim & Save this morning.. I can order to Ireland from the UK site so its an option I might try should this not suit.. Some of the meals sound yum... :) But after reading up on VLCD's I've discovered they aren't really recommneded unless you have minimum 3 stone to lose to get to a healthy weight/BMI.. I've 1 stone til I reach the high end of a healthy BMI so I'll try this first... Also said to see your GP before starting a VLCD to check your health is up to such a low cal intake and I don't fancy paying €50 for that... (yes I am greedy lol)

    Good luck! I'm going to start doing the plan at home by myself - waiting for my books to arrive but I read up the basics on google so that I can sort of start today as well! Your plan for today looks good, you would just need to count the bread and cheese as healthy extras but I believe the bread needs to be wholemeal and the cheese a certain measurement.. for now I'm just googling everything before I eat it!
