My Journey to a new me.....

    Hi, my name is Sinead. I'm 37 and following SW since January. I got married last May and was a size 8. Now 9 months later I'm a size 18. Myself and my husband have been trying to conceive with no success. I got diagnosed with an underactive thyroid gland last month so now on meds for that but my weight loss is slow. I've lost 10 ibs so far. This diary is to record my SW journey & any other thoughts and ramblings I may have lol. My weight gain was rapid due to my undiagnosed thyroid plus the fact I was overeating due to my unhappiness at being unable to get pregnant. I did a 3 month stint of femera but nothing happened. At my last scan last week she was positive that once my thyroid is regulated I will get pregnant so fingers crossed. ...
    Anyway my food diary for today is...
    Banana, melon & blueberries with 35g porridge.
    350ml skimmed milk for teas
    Muller light with raspberries
    Pear, Grapes
    6 baby new potatoes, bacon & carrots
    2 finger kitkat 5.5 syns

    I get weighed every Monday so hoping for a loss 2moro but it is *week.

    Thanks ladies delighted to say I lost 1.5ibs tonight :). So in 8 weeks I'm down 11.5ibs in total. It might be slow but it's coming off and STAYING off! I thought once I was put on the thyroid meds the weight would fall off lol wishful thinking there !!!
    So home now and had nothing prepared for dinner I had made a pasta bake for my hubby but there is too many syns in that for me. I'm not that hungry to be honest so just going to have a mugshot with some chicken. Banana & muller light for afters plus a 2 finger kit kat. In total today 6 syns as the muller light I had this morning had 1/2 syn in it.
    Ash Wednesday this week so I've decided to do something instead of giving up something. My aim is to walk 1 mile every day. So 15-18 mins a day shouldn't be that hard to achieve. We shall see :)

    Stayed at my parents last night and their internet was done. Had porridge & blueberries for breakfast. Grapes mid morning. Lunch was turkey slices with salad, aldi cupshotz and muller light yogurt with melon. Mam had dinner ready when I got home which was potatoes, mixed veg and salmon. Why do dinners taste soooo nice when someone else makes it!!! I had skimmed milk in my teas measured out plus 1 oatie biscuit. Dunno how many syns in that but that was all I had syn wise for the day.

    Subscribing :) congrats on your 1 stone award how are you finding sw compared to ww x

    Thanks I much prefer SW. I never go hungry and love making different recipes. I found WW esp the pro points just never seemed to work for me. Maybe it's because I'm bigger now and I've got more to lose that sw works for me.
