    :wave_cry: Hi Everyone

    Well i have been a member on here for a while, and regularly post on the teams section. Found myself struggling to keep motivated the last few days :cry:so have decided to start an online diary in the hope that you all knowing what im up to will keep me on the straight and narrow!:rolleyes:

    Little bit about me - :D Im 27, married, no kiddies yet, and am a student nurse. Started with 10 stone to loose, have lost 2 stone, which im chuffed about, still have eight to go. Im aiming for about 2lbs a week, this will get me to ten stone next april ish! so fingers crossed. I havent always been overweight, was really slim when i was younger but stupidly thought i was fat, how wrong i was. Anyhoo, feel like ive been in a hamster run for the past 10 years, losing then gaining, plus some extra! so sw it is for me, slow and steady and hopefully ill get there once and for all. Any tips/advice gratefully received!

    I do EE all of the time;

    So i am planning on having-

    HEXA - 1 Laughing Cow light
    HEXB - 2 x Alpen light bar


    Grilled bacon, scrambled egg, mushroom, toms, beans

    Jacket Potatoe, Tuna
    Lettuce
    Cuccumber
    Carrot
    Tomatoe
    Onion
    1 tbsp ex light mayo (0.5)
    Cherries, Melon, Strawberries



    Home made BBQ Chicken;
    Chicken
    passata
    curry powder
    onions/balsamic/chilli/mustard/worcester
    peppers
    mushroom

    Syn Free egg fried rice

    Syns: Fromage Frais (1)
    Mayo(1)
    Pom Bears (5)


    i always have my syns, but not sure what il spend em on today! so i will update later! :p

    Have a great day, hope i havent bored you all to tears, or even worse, chocolate!!! xx

You can look at your good loss weeks and see why you had them, and then the not so good losses and see where you went wrong. Feel free to pop in and out of my diary, I hope you get some tips. We also have a good support group -that was started up for newbies to begin with, but offers motivation, recipes, tips and defo kicks up the jacksey's when needed. We all need it once in a while, plus we share out ups and downs and giggles too.. "From here to Eternally Slim". pop over and say hi and read some of the posts. xxx

    You're doing a great thing by admitting the extent of your journey but this time next year you'll look back over this diary and think how amazing the journey has been. Expect ups and downs but remember with all the support you get here you'll pull through. 2 stone is an amazing loss, kudos :D

    Ah thanks girls for popping in to my diary! It terrifies me writing down how much i actually would like to lose, its like admitting how much of a battle i have got ahead of me. BUT i do feel really positive about it, and i am determined that i will get there. Whether it takes me a year or two, i will do it! Already had to alter my meal plan, just didnt fancy porridge for brekkie! so went for bacon instead! all syn free though.

    My main aim this week is to lay off the bread, its a challenge for me, i love bread, but i think its bloating me.

    You have all done so well too, so that keeps me inspired. I had a nosy at your piccies before, you all look fab as you are! its how you feel though isnt it! dont know if im brave enough to upload any yet!! xx

    I bloat with bread too. So now limit it to no more then 4 servings of bread each week. So a small w/meal roll, 2 slices of nimble and thats all. I like Alpen Bar Lights, as you can have 2 of them :). Brekkie, I hardly ever have cereal, its usually fruit or fruit and yogurt. Now and then, scrambled egg or a sw fry up, but then only once a week.

    I think its just finding the plan that works and because there are 3 on SW (4 with the express), it takes some time to find the one that suits you and your losses. Tried a few diff mixes as well as EE, but find that Red suits me best, but I like EE, so combine it with 4 days Red and 2 of EE and always a Red before Weigh Day. We've the same left to loose, so it'll be an interesting journey hun. Will def keep in touch xx

    Hi Louise - how were Michael, Lincoln and Sucre?!!!

    Good to see you've started a diary - I find it helps me to focus - and provides a great place to rant!!!

    I'm with you on bread, it really affects my losses :mad: What I wouldn't give for a thick wedge of tiger bread with butter though!!!

    Hi Losc -great to see you have a diary running...somewhere else for me to lurk :p
    As you know-Im another one with bread issues, especially as I always made my own :rolleyes:-I haven't had any since I started SW-partly because I know it hold my weight -but also because I could live on the bloomin stuff :sigh: -I haven't missed it at all.
    We all know you will get to target.... Im with you -every ounce off is a step in the right direction:D.
    look forward to seeing your meal plans -I find knowing what Im having to eat in a day a life saver.
    Right I will stop waffling...
    Good luck Hun -not that you need it ;)

    Hi Losc
    ooooh tomorrows meals look yummy :drool:
    I don't know what is in the pancakes -but if there isn't any in -next time add a bit of vanilla extract (not essence) -I use to find that when I did a lot of baking that would take away some of that eggy taste you get with things cooked quickly ;)...
    Keep up the great work Mrs :clap:
