Nat's Food Diary - Week 1

Hi All,

I'm in my second week of SW since leaving WW. I stayed the same at my first SW weigh-in so I thought I would post my food diary to make sure I'm doing this correctly. Please feel free to comment! I am definitely enjoying this way of eating, I'm just having a little trouble believing how I can eat so much and still lose weight! I was told that I could have up to 105 syns per week any way I wanted (average 15 per day) so this is what I've done.

OK, here goes....

Egg Fried Rice - 5 syns on Green, 1 on EE

3 eggs
pinch of salt
2 tsp oil
113g / 4oz cooked, peeled prawns
113g / 4oz cooked, skinned chicken, diced
57g / 2oz cooked peas
4 spring onions, chopped
2 tbsp soy sauce
340g / 12oz cold boiled rice
salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Beat the eggs and salt in a bowl. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a wok or a deep frying pan and add the beaten eggs. Stir over gentle heat until the eggs scramble and set. Remove the scrambled eggs and set aside.
2. Heat the remaining oil in a clean wok or frying pan and add the prawns, chicken, peas and spring onions. Stir-fry for 1 minute and then stir in the soy sauce.
3. Continue stir-frying for 2 minutes, then add the cooked rice and scrambled eggs. Stir constantly over a gentle heat and until the rice is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
I left out the chicken and just had prawns so it was lower in syns but it was really yummy!

Thanks Mrs. V. Not had any luck losing so far - STS first week and gained half a pound second week. Might have something to do with having had chinese twice and not weighing the portions, therefore underestimating syns. I'm going to forget takeaways this week and see where it gets me!
