    hi
    so im being advised to make a food diary :confused:
    im not too sure about it but im gonna give it a go....

    breakfast/lunch (got up late) 1 quorn sausage,egg fried in fry light and 2 slices of holvis wholemeal bread

    dinner i had chicken and veg pie with mash potato topping instead of pastry,
    put carrots,celery,onion and green beans in it

    syns ive had 2 cadbury light chocolatte mousses,and a plain wholemeal roll 6 syns

    healthy a = 350ml semi skimmed milk
    b choice = wholemeal roll for breakfast

    snacks = 2 apples

    so thats my day

    my food problems started when me and my partner where made redundant 2 yrs ago ,i just sat here and ate and the pounds piled on,im hoping now with slimming world to lose this weight although being home all day i do loss motivation sometimes but i am determined to lose it...
    i do feel hungry alot of the time,im only half way through my second week so im hoping this will subside soon.

    hi - good luck with keeping a diary. i find it helpful just to keep check on what i'm eating and how many syns i've had.

    it also helps me if i gain or have a great loss as i can see what i ate the week.

    you should never go hungry on SW - make a list of all free foods you like. i used to always have a spare tin of mushy peas in the cupboard if i got hungry at night and would warm that up and eat it followed by fruit. used to help alot in my moments of weakness!

    and maybe have bigger breakfast - ie 3 quorn sausages, 2 fried eggs, beans, mushrooms and tomatoes are still free ;) ...don't treat it as a diet. eat until you're satisfied.

    day 3 of my food diary
    today was hard had to go out for a family meal to an indian resturant took my slimming world book with me

    breakfast: bacon and egg sandwich (bread b choice)

    2 bananas

    dinner: salad, tandori chicken 9 syns,boild plain rice
    choke chicken have no idea how many syns are in one of those but they put 2 on my plate and i only ate one also had 1/2 of an after eight

    not really sure how many syns ive had but i think i will try not to have any syns now until after weigh in on thursday morning
    i actually feel guilty for eating the india as as if i have let myself down in some way!!! i dont go out for food at all i always cook from scratch so not doing that feels awful

    Hi Clare,

    I agree with Val - cutting down syns won't necessarily lead to bigger losses, I do much better when I have between 10 and 15 per day than I do when I have less!

    I've copied this from Squiddie's FAQ thread, which explains it a lot better than I could :)

    Don't be too disappointed by a 1/2lb loss - a loss is a loss! You've done really well in your first couple of weeks - well done :)

    Oh, well spotted Zoemee20 - you're only allowed 350ml as a HEA if it is Skimmed milk, if it is semi-skimmed, you're allowed 250ml.

    It's easy to get things like that confused, so maybe it would be worth you checking every thing again Clare, to make sure the things you think are free actually are, and that you're measuring your healthy extras correctly?
