    Have been doing Slimming World for a year now. Have lost a total of 2 stone 4 pounds. I now weigh 9 stone 10 woohoo! Used to go to the weekly group sessions but now I don't seem to have the time, but I still keep the diet up. I find its more a way of life now, not a diet. Its easy and I never feel hungry. I don't feel that I necessarily need to lose any more weight but would like to keep it off as I'm happy as I am now. I'm starting this diary to see if anybody can suggest new ideas as I strive to find new foods to eat as variety really makes it sooo much easier!!

    Saturday 14th August 2010 – Green Day

    Breakfast: 2 slices of toast - Nimble brown bread (Healthy Extra B) with Marmite (Free) and Flora Light (2 Syns)

    Lunch: Tomato and Herb Mug Shot (Free), Mullerlight - Vanilla Sprinkled with Dark Chocolate (1 Syn), Whole bunch of grapes (Free)

    Dinner: Slimming World Chips (Free), Beans (Free) and Tesco Low Fat Cheddar Cheese (2 X HE A)

    Snacks: Strawberries with artificial sweetener (Free)

    Drinks: 2 x Coffee with skimmed milk and sweetener (2 Syns for milk), 1 x tea with skimmed milk and sweetener (1 Syn for Milk), Diet Coke (Free), Water (Obviously free lol)

    Total Syns: 6


    Overall a good day but missed out on one of my Healthy Extra B’s – feel full and don’t fancy anything else. Maybe a slice of toast later if I get the munchies.

    Hey there! Just stumbled across your diary and thought I'd let you know something my C mentioned about maintaining once you've got to target. She said people aren't really encouraged to start ignoring the syns principle, they should stick with the amount they have while they are losing, but they are told to relax about their healthy extras - so maybe not really measuring the milk out every day, or less weighing of chicken/fish/cereal. So have more cups of tea and coffee if you want! Because you're getting plenty of water down you, and you can use more milk ;)

    About variety... grab an SW mag, there are some brilliant recipes in there! I love one from a few months ago, Valencian Paella... oh gosh it was lovely! I didn't follow it to the letter - there were lots of different types of meat but I just used chicken - but it was so mouth-wateringly lush! Even if I say so myself :eek: I can post the recipe up for you if you want?

    Oh right - that's great news about relaxing with the Healthy Extras - I will stop measuring etc. but still stick to the basic principals. Would love the recipe as Paella is one of my favs - my mum used to make it for me when I lived at home but hers probably wouldn't be Slimming World Friendly lol. I am definitely going to start buying the mags too as some of the tips in there are very useful! Thanks x x
