    Hi everyone. I've been on SW before and had good results, but didn't stick at it or maintain. This time round I am in a better frame of mind to do it properly. This site is definitely helping, although now I may need some internet-addiction-therapy... anyhoo...

    I need to fix both of those habits!

    Had my post holiday weigh in last night, and had a gain of half a pound. I was thrilled skinny (ha!) with that, as was expecting that I might see +2 or *gulp* more.

    Stayed to IMAGE Therapy, which I really enjoy, and feel back on track after it. My DH and I did share a take-away last night, as a treat. I enjoyed every morsel, and am happy that I got my salt and vinegar fix.

    This week, we've nothing on socially, so I am going to try Success Express again. I REALLY want my stone next week, AND to complete the Oct-Jan challenge.

    Hi Coughdrops!

    Looks like you're doing really well :) I'm not a huge bread eater either so struggled with my hexB's at first. Have you tried the Alpen light bars though? I have them as my hexb's and they're really nice!

    coughdrops Well-Known Member


    Thanks Jessie, yes I really like the bars, but I don't often get them. I find them a bit expensive. Although, as I am doing SE this week I might get them anyway as I'll definitely need my HE Bs this week.

    I am having soup for lunch today, so planning to have bread with it. Feels a bit odd, forcing myself to have it, but I can understand the logic behind it, so I'll plough on!


    You're stats are great, well done on hitting 3 stone x

    After a weekend at the inlaws, I am back on SE today. Stuck to EE over the weekend, but went over my syns by not tracking 100%.

    Have Aldi Benefit bars instead of Alpen Lights for this week.

    Are the Aldi bars HexB too? What are they like? x
     
  11. coughdrops

    coughdrops Well-Known Member

    Yes, you can have 2 x Aldi Harvest Morn Benefit Light Bars as a HEX B. I've the chocolate fudge ones. They're smaller than Alpen Light bars, but they're tasty and they're a good bit cheaper.

    Brill - now the Alpen Light bars aren't on offer they're becoming pretty pricey!!

    Eight weeks in, I've finally got my 1st stone award after losing 2.5 lbs last night. We have 9 weigh-ins to Christmas, so would dearly love to have 2nd stone award by then. 9 weeks, 13 pounds, sounds doable!!

    Not been good at putting my diaries up here, but I have a notebook that never leaves my side. I think that's really kept me on track, I don't like writing down when I've over-synned!

    After a fantastic Bank Hol weekend catching up with friends, I'm back on track this morning. Hoping for a maintain tomorrow. Not too worried, as I am going to have nights out / weddings / birthdays to contend with throughout my SW journey and beyond, so I have to learn to deal with them and move on from them.

    Don't let a bad day turn into a bad week!

    Managed to lose a pound after a pretty hectic weekend. 12 lbs to go and I'll have my 2 stone award. There are 8 weigh-ins to Christmas, so I want to get my award for then.

    I've noticed I'm becoming a bit lazy on the old superfree, I have a good bit of it but can't really say it's a third of my meals. This week I am going back on Success Express, for at least 5 days. I've a night out on Sat, but planning on sticking to slimline tonic and lime (my pretend G&Ts!). I want at least 2 lbs off next week to get into the 14s, and to get me started on the countdown to Christmas.

    I'm exactly the same with my superfree - I seemed to get into the habit of thinking that I could have a huge portion of rice and SW chips and curry and then like a tiny salad! A habit I've only recently broken - but doing Success Express should definitely help you along. Good luck getting into the 14s - you can do it :) !

    Thanks x

    I'm the same, I think my curry is brill cos it's all veg, but end up having a lot of rice and chips with it. Need to re-jig!

    My diary is very neglected... had to scroll through my subscribed threads to find it :rolleyes:

    Even though I've been OK at updating my notebook diary, I'm challenging myself to do the online account every day for next 3 weeks. My Christmas party is on 19th Dec, and I had hoped to get my 2 stone award for then. That's 9 lbs away, which would be AMAZING but unlikely, so I will settle for another half stone.

    Today's food is looking like:

    Breakfast- Ryvita, Mini Babybel Light and coffee (1/2 syn milk), 2x satsumas (Ryvita and Babybel from HEX)

    Mid morning- banana and green tea

    Lunch- Home made veggie soup, Ryvita and yogurt. Soup has swede, peppers, onion, cauli and broccoli. Too much broccoli... not a v attractive green colour!

    Dinner- Pork stirfry, loads of veggies, brown rice.
