Afternoon all!

Back again and starting a fresh!

Summary for those who do not know me:
I originally joined in 2010 for my first ever real healthy eating plan after being asked by many different people if i was pregnant whilst on the train to work. I did really well and reached target after losing 3.5 stone.

It wasnt smooth sailing, I love my alcohol, I am a real foodie and sometimes a SW recipe doesnt quite cut it. My main issue is that i am an emotional eater... when im happy, sad, excited, awake, breathing... you get the idea.

Still, i managed it, and i maintained it but when I stopped coming on here sneaky cheats and treats crept in. I had a HORRENDOUS year last year and yoyo'd like it was going out of fashion in a truely phonominal fashion losing and gaining stones over a couple of weeks.

This year has been unexpectedly very good and as such my weight has begun to settle, only problem being its at the wrong end of the scales!

So, here i am!!!

I cant promise i'll update my food daily but i do keep a paper list so will advise every tuesday after my at home WI what the weeks consumption was for your scrutiny

So far i have done 3 WIs:
Lost of 5
Lost of 3.5
Gain of 1.8

The gain was deserved, afterall fridge pickers wear big knickers!

Firmly believing im the one week rule i'm hoping with a bit of perfection this week i can get that back off again!!

So you're all up to date! Feel free to shout if syns have changed or i'm making things up :)

Hello :)

I now have wifi at home too so it's much easier to hop on here of an evening!

As those who know me know, I love a good one pot wonder. Just got in from a food shop so have an oven casserole mix on the stove (7 syns for the whole thing) stuffed with mushrooms, onion, courgette, carrot (to take up a third of my plate) and boil in the bag rice (which I believe is free)

At a push ill eat half so that's 3.5 syns for dinner and 6 for the small glass of wine I'm currently guzzling

Here to subscribe too.
Rice - depends on the sort chica. Some of the pouches have Syns in (as they have a bit of oil in) - others don't.
If you tell me the exact one, I'll look it up, but extract from online for Uncle Ben's rice as follows

You'll be please to know that the cheese allowance has increased. It's now 30g cheddar for a HexB.
So you could have had a whole 1g more :8855:

Morning ladies!

Thanks for the xmas wishes, im still at work today and a half day tomorrow so not quite got that festive feeling yet!

No updates on here over the weekend but i was PERFECT foodwise, stayed within syns and everything!

Met a few friends for a xmas piss up and so over synned on the alcohol but had 8 vodkas instead of my usual 3 bottles of wine so massive syn saving! My goodness on the food front means that i am only 0.5 syns over for the week including all the alcohol - im just hoping the scales see it that way!!

Hoping for a loss tomorrow but then will be having ribs for dinner as my 'treat' if i have a loss and then will give myself christmas day and boxing day off. Its then back on the wagon with the only 'over-syns' being alcoholic on new years that way it wont be too huge of a gain over the xmas period!

So WI tomorrow and only syns allowed today, eating a pasta and sauce atm and left over beef for dinner with stir fry vegies, hopfully it shouldnt be too hard to stay within my allowance.

xx
