    Start weight : 13 stone 9lbs

    I don't like the way I am at the moment. I've been struggling with my weight since my first child and he's now nearly 14! But now am the heaviest I have ever been. I need to do something about it so have decided to record my food and thoughts diary , even if no-one reads it, to try and keep me on track.
    If anyone else is just starting Sw, I'd appreciate a buddy along the journey for mutual support (there is no group near me). My ultimate goal is to lose 3 stone but I'm just thinking about the first half stone now.

    OK food diary today
    bacon (visible fat removed), scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes and baked beans
    Lunch: 3 bananas (small) - bit weird I know but not really hungry after my large breakfast
    Tea: pizza chicken (from the magazine) - 6 syns , salad, wedges and 1/2 corn on the cob
    snacks: 1/2 pack of chicken tikka pieces (1syn) and 2 pieces of ham.

    total syns 7 - might have another snack later

    I was able to cook today as I had a day off. The pizza chicken was much nicer than I thought it was going to be. its free if you havent used your hex a , but i had s/skd milk in coffee today. No hex b yet - might have a couple of alpen bars later.

    I finished off tuesday 11th march with a coconut muller light yoghurt (1 sun), 2 alpen light bars (hexb) and a rich highland shortie biscuit. (2 1/2 syns). Hubby brought the packet in while we were watching TV . Very tempting. Felt quite proud of myself that I only had one - just as well with those syns.
    Total syns for the day: 10.5

    Wednesday 12th March
    Breakfast: banana
    Lunch: Jacket potato (cold as there is no microwave at work) with left over tomato/pepper concoction from the pizza chicken last night, a dollop of 0% greek yoghurt and salad. Ate my lunch at about 12 as I was hungry, then I was hungry again when I got home from work
    Snack (5pm) wholemeal roll (hexb) with 2 quorn sausages (2 syns) and ketchup (1syn)
    Dinner: sweet and sour pork and noodles (SW magazine) (1/2 sun) - didn't like this very much, one child refused to eat it and hubby not keen - won't be cooking this again. Mullerlight vanilla yoghurt with dark chocolate
    Hexa - milk in coffee/tea throughout the day

    A good day - had a sneaky weigh at the end of the day (yes, I know I shouldn't) and already 3 lbs down Woohoo. went to bed a happy bunny

    Sounds like you're doing really well so far!

    I get hungry early and when I get home from work so I always take 2 bits of fruit into work with me, one I eat at around 10am and the other around 3pm. This usually helps to keep me going until dinner then.

    Tut tut for sneaky weighing! I can't talk though I do it all the time!

    Thanks wegle but not such a great day yesterday. Oh dear . it all went horribly wrong...

    Thursday March 13th
    Didnt have any breakfast - first mistake
    wasnt organised enough to take anything into work for lunch - second mistake
    so I went (hungry) to our only supermarket , mace, more like a corner shop than a supermarket. thought I would pick up a mug shot or something similar. They had no mugshots so I bought Ko Lee instant noodles chicken flavour. i was delighted when I saw the quantity of noodles one pack made and gobbled them down. Not so delighted when I found out they were about 2.5 syns per 100g of made up noodles - not sure how much mine weighed as I had eaten them!! Im guessing about 8 syns.
    Then I unexpectantly had more children after school than I was expecting. They wanted biscuits so i got out a packet I have for my choir, the kids had a few and I finished them off! I wasnt even counting! (guessing 20 syns)
    Then took assembled children to the theatre where they were doing a dance and had 2 glasses of wine (8 syns)
    then went to carluccios for supper and had a steak, green beans and rosemary roasted potatoes with a red pepper sauce. The steak was inedible (the staff took the price off the bill) so i ate all the potatoes which I probably normally wouldnt have done. Then I came home and ate more biscuits, becasue by this time I had so blown the day.....
    Stopped counting the syns in that lot.... I guess it will be a flexible syn day. I have learnt that a lot of it happened because I wasnt organised and didnt have the right food in.
    However, I am treating the day not as a mistake but a learning opportunity (slightly sarcastic) and will move on and up ....

    Friday 14th March

    Breakfast: mullerlight vanilla yoghurt and strawberries
    Lunch: chicken noodle mugshot
    Snacks: i piece of my son's Pizza (5 syns , Quavers x2 (9syns)
    Dinner: mushroom, bacon and green bean pasta (3 syns for olive oil and red wine) - made by hubby.

    Drinks: water, fizzy water, tea. coffee (milk hex A), 1 glass wine (5 syns)

    oh dear Still ovr my syn allowance. Those two packs of quavers were eaten almost unconsciously and without much enjoyment as i dint have anything much to snack on when I got home form work when I am always hungry. I will go shopping in the morning and make sure I have more syn free/low syn snacks.

    Good luck with weigh in tomorrow!

    I hate having treats in the house and just wish someone would eat them all up! I have been known to chuck stuff away just because it was soooo tempting but I always feel guilty so I usually pawn stuff off on the Mother & Father in Law now or take it into work for the lads to eat!

    loss of 3lbs!! Not massive I know for a first week, but I struggled this week to stay on plan so I am really pleased. I am determined now to get back to proper SW

    Monday 17th March
    lunch: salad, SW quiche, banana
    snack: ham, SW sweet potato wedges, more SW quiche (they were sitting there in the fridge). 1/2 chicken nugget (1syns), 2 allen light bars (hexb), small chocolate brownie
    dinner: prawn stir fry with noodles, soya sauce, garlic and ginger and sweet chill sauce (2 Syns). mullerlight yoghurt

    Really good day. i feel really righteous. I think I might change my weigh in day to friday morning, then if I stray slightly over the weekend, I have the rest of the week to right it, before the next weigh in.

    loopylou67 Member

    ooh, forgot to out in the syns for the brownie. I have allowed 5 as it was a really small bit, but it doesn't really matter as I only had 3 syns. oh yes and hex a as always was milk in coffees/teas throughout the day

    Tuesday 18th March


    went to a friends for coffee and resisted biscuits (feeling proud of myself)
    lunch: jacket potato, prawns, marie rose sauce (1.5 syns), salad
    dinner: pulled pork with barbeque sauce (syn free yippee), sweet potato wedges and salad.
    snacks: 2 alpen bars (hex B). 4 single finger time out bars (24 syns ) - oh dear - shouldn't have had one because I'm a girl who just doesn't know when to stop. Need to do some work about what is important to me. it's just that when I'm in the moment of eating , especially bread, biscuits, chocolate, their pulling power just seems stronger than my self will. Also muller light vanilla yoghurt. I also felt like I had over eaten and was quite uncomfortable.
