Rebecca's finding the plot again diary!

#1
Hi Girls (and guys)
I've been doing Sw since 2004..... been to target and back again with lots of waivering along the way both up and down - to say I took the scenic route is an understatement to say the least!!!!
Anyway........new start for April Fools day now....just back from Butlins and a week of total diet abandonment and a renewed focus!!!!! Want to get into a pair of bootcut size 14 jeans so that will be my inspiration!!!
I'm hovering at a 16 at the moment so would expect about a stone in weightloss would get me into the jeans!!! I seem to gain on legs, hips, bum area so that will be my focus!!!
Hope to chat to all of you! xxx

Morning Peeps...well actually it's lunchtime. The plot went out of the window last night....... very annoyed with myself as I was only 2 days into the plan as it was but there was just too much tempting stuff in my fridge!!! I ate half a large bar of fruit and nut chocolate and another TWO aero bars!!! What a pig!!! BUT....new start today and guess that's my syns taken care of for the rest of the week :-(
That'll teach me!!!

Onwards and upwards then!!!

Hi Rebecca,

You did well to reel yourself in and start again before too much damage had been done. At least you didn't do what I did last week. I had things that I thought were very low syn, only to find that they were 13 syns or more and got so disgusted with myself (and the diet) that I ate badly. Whereas if I had done what you have done and just said to myself that those syns could be deducted from the week's allowance there would have been absolutely no drama at all and I wouldn't have spent two days thinking "I've blown it". This is something I need to learn. Along with forward planning :D not good at that either at the moment.

Good luck with it. I am sure you'll do great.....and watch out for the Aeros lol

Hi Lorrayne
Thank you for your kind message. I'm very much the same though that once I think I've blown it I would usually go off on a HUGE binge!!! It's out of character for me to get back on the wagon so quickly and with minimal damage done so it's also something that I need to work on. Typically Aero bars are not even one of my favourites...they were just 'there' but isn't that the case with a lot of our out-of-control splurges on syns???
Onwards and upwards I guess and good luck Lorrayne - we will get there!!!

Tuesday 5th April – Extra Easy
Oh dear…..trying to redeem myself – it’s not going too well L
After the chocolate binge of yesterday and the day before I decided to go for it 100% again – it wasn’t meant to be…I’ve nobody to blame but myself
Breakfast: Toffee Apple Dessert Weightwatchers yogurt 0.5 syns, skimmed milk for coffee (HEA)
Lunch: Jacket potato & beans
Snacks: I hi fi bar (heb)
Omelette with 3 eggs and frylight
Dinner: Hubby decided he wanted to take me out J so we went to Bella Italia….I was hoping for a pasta dish with a plain tomato sauce – something like an arabiatta or a pomodoro…sadly most of the pasta dishes were either creamy or had meatballs which I wasn’t sure about given that they wouldn’t be XL mince! So….. went with:
Side salad (as a starter) it had vinaigrette on it so estimate 2 syns as not sure of the syns in vinaigrette
Shared a bowl of marinated olives so estimate another 2 syns
Then chose chicken breast brushed with chilli and lemon glaze with new potatoes and roast veg – thought this sounded like a pretty low syn choice…how wrong I was!!!! The chicken has been griddled (in fat) and the glaze was just a pool of greasy oil, the new potatoes had been roasted in olive oil and the roast veg had been roasted in oil!!! I have to assume about 7 syns for all the oil in that dish!
We turned down dessert but DH went to the shop and got me a Frys Chocolate Cream Bar – would guess that’s 12 syns!!! So all-in-all about 24 syns for the day! Eek!!!

Wednesday 6th April – Extra Easy
Well after my terrible day yesterday and bad days before that I was feeling pretty disheartened and decided to do a mid-week weigh in!!!! I know that is bad but I felt that I needed to shock myself into submission…..unbelievably I’m showing a 3lb loss (Although this was 6.15am before I’d eaten or drank anything so may not have been entirely accurate) Feeling pretty pleased with myself and with a renewed focus I made a salad for my lunch at work and am continuing to ‘try’. Hopefully a promise I can keep lol!
Breakfast: Pear, Apple, carrot sticks, 1 shortbread biscuit (uh oh) approx 4 syns??, skimmed milk for coffee (Hea)
Lunch: Ham salad with VLF cottage cheese, 2 x weightwatchers yogurts
Dinner: Chilli con carne made with XL mince, allow 2 syns for spray of non-frylight frying oil and bit of tomato puree, boiled rice
Snacks:
