    After giving myself a firm talking to a few weeks back and going right back to basics, I've managed to kick start my losses. I'm can feel myself slipping again by not planning and writing my meals, so here's hoping this will help me out!

    Can't fit them in my sig yet, but so far my losses (and maintains, and gains...) have been -

    Week 1: -0.5lb
    Week 2: -1.5lb
    Week 3: STS
    Week 4: +0.5lb
    Week 5: -0.5lb
    Week 6: -1.5lb
    Week 7: Hols
    Week 8: Hols
    Week 9: +0.5lb
    Week 10: -0.5lb
    Week 11: +0.5lb
    Week 12: -0.5lb
    Week 13: -3lb
    Week 14: STS
    Week 15: +0.5lb
    Week 16: +0.5lb
    Week 17: -0.5lb
    Week 18: STS
    Week 19: -1lb Half Stone Award!
    Week 20: -0.5lb
    Week 21: -1.5lb
    Week 22: -1lb
    Week 23: -2.5lb


    I'm off work all summer, so finding it easier to stick to plan at the moment.

    SO today has been a Green Day.

    Breakfast/Brunch - 1 Weetabix/4 Scanbran (HEx B) with 250ml semi-skimmed milk (HEx A), strawberries, blueberries, banana and sweetener

    Tea - 2 Quorn fillets in passata with courgette, onion and mushrooms, with boiled rice.

    Snacks - Hifi bar (HEx B), peach, satsumas.

    Thanks :) My tea was a huge plateful, and I've had a shockingly lazy day so haven't really needed much food to keep me going today!

    Friday 30th July [strike]Extra Easy[/strike] Green

    Breakfast

    1 Weetabix/4 Scanbran (HEx B) with 250ml semi-skimmed milk (HEx A), strawberries, blueberries, banana and sweetener

    Lunch

    SW onion & Quorn bacon quiche, mushrooms and salad

    Tea

    [STRIKE]Chinese takeaway - chicken and beef with mushrooms (10 syns), egg fried rice (8 syns)[/STRIKE]

    So annoyed. Had a small gathering at a friend's house, plan was to get a takeaway. So I planned this into my day, worked out what would be a sensible option without feeling deprived, etc, and didn't have eat between lunch and going. Arrived and was told that we weren't bothering with Chinese, but instead were having 'nibbles'. So, despite resisting for a good half hour whilst everyone else ate, my hunger took over and I chomped through half a massive bag of dorito-type crisps and dip, and handfuls of sweets. Didn't even enjoy it, and don't even know where to start guesstimating the syns :(

    Snacks

    Strawberries and a Hifi bar (HEx B) (to make me feel slightly healthier/fuller after my binge)

    I just wanted to limit my carbs really! I could have had green and HEx'd/synned the tuna just as easily as it turned out, but I would have had approximately half a ton of pasta (I struggle massively with portion control!) I probably could have swapped the day before for red as well to be fair.

    I find green days much easier because I love my potatoes and pasta, but still have this psychological block that carby days will make me lose less (although I'm still having good losses since changing to red/green with probably more green), so when I can fit it in, I'll try red and HEx/syn my carbs. Hope my ramblings make some kind of sense?! :)


    Today will be Extra Easy, as much as possible. I'm working away for two weeks, and food options are limited to say the least. I've discussed with my C, and I'll be having cereal for breakfast, salad for lunch, then go with the flow in the evenings. So technically I'll be off-plan, but trying to limit the potential damage!

    Breakfast

    1 Weetabix/4 Scanbran (HEx B) with 250ml semi-skimmed milk (HEx A), strawberries, blueberries, banana and sweetener

    Lunch

    Not sure yet - possibly an omelette? with salad

    Tea

    Honestly? Probably £80 worth of KFC. Not all for me, obviously...

    Ahhhhhhhhh!! Terrible week. Stuck to damage limitation for all of a day before the temptation of lovely, warm, syn-loaded food got to me. Meals have included:

    Surf and turf
    Cottage pie loaded with cheese
    Chicken pie
    Lasagne
    Burger
    Gammon and chips
    Pizza
    Chinese
    Cadbury's caramel nibbles (BIG bag)

    Drinks have included wine, pimms and lemonade, and coffee with sugar - just because I couldn't be bothered to go get my sweetener out of my handbag!! All in the space of six days.

    Bad, bad times. Wii Fit says I've gained 4lb already! Need to pull it back next week, but really don't know how I'm going to resist all the temptations for a whole week!

    Back on plan from today. Going to try and do all red from today until weigh-in.

    Tuesday 14th August Red

    1 Weetabix/4 Scanbran (Hex B) with 250ml semi-skimmed milk (Hex A), strawberries, banana and blueberries with sweetener.

    7 Guylian chocolates (given as a present, may as well get them eaten and out of the way on the week I know I'm going to gain!), no idea of syns as I've missed two WIs so haven't got the password :(

    1 grilled chicken breast with grilled mushrooms and a cheese and onion omelette (Hex A)

    Hifi Bar (Hex B)

    Sunday 15th August Greenish

    Breakfast

    Two slices of brown toast (Hex B) with beans & mushrooms

    Lunch

    Jacket potato with tuna mayo (Hex B + 4 syns?) and side salad

    Tea

    Quorn pasta bolognese with 3 babybel light (Hex A)

    Struggling a bit after being off plan for two weeks, really tempting to just write it off until weigh-in, but trying my best! Also finding it hard without the SW password to get my syns and food diary online - I will get 100% back on track after Wednesday WI.

    I've never even seen Krispy Kreme doughnuts before (sheltered life?), thought it was just an American thing. It was lush, but I'm not a massive doughnut fan so don't think I'd spend 18 syns on it again!!
