Newbie In Need Of Food Diary Help

Hey All,

I've been on SW EE since 3 Jan 2011, having lost 1/2 a stone I have got to a bit of a standstill. So i joined this and realised i'd been doin EE wrong, and I guess just the change in calories to my diet is why I'd lost the initial weight.

Can someone please tell me if my food diary is going ok so far?

Sat 19th Feb 11

Breakfast - 2 fried eggs using fry light, 2 rashers of grilled bacon (all fat removed) and 4 Bowyers 95% ff sausages (2syns)

Snack - Big desert bowl of pineapple and satsumas with a Banana & Custard Muller light. 2 coffees (using 1/2 my HEXA) with a dash of Skimmed Milk.

Lunch - Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce on 2 Wholemeal Toast (HEXB) - Should i have syned the spaghetti?? I thought not, but i'm not sure

Snack - FF Homemade SW Lemon Mousse, Mini mini McVities Chocolate Shortcake (2syns)

Dinner - Tesco Simply Chicken with Bacon and Cheese (cheese didnt look any bigger than a matchbox - remaining HEXA) +6 Syns (just incase), Half of the plate full of Sliced Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Corn On The Cob and a large Jacket Potato.

Any thought very much appreciated!!!
