    Hi All...
    Thought I would drop in and try and keep a food diary (again)... long story short I'm at the biggest I've ever been and looking to try slimming world again... as I know it works. My willpower is severely limited at the mo (I am blaming having to mission through normal life and work with a particularly bad spell of health)
    But greediness might have something to do with it.

    ... day one
    Not the best start cos its all been a bit rushed

    EE day. (This will take getting used to - last time I did SW it was more about red and green)

    B: banana and 3 small plums
    L: roast chicken leg (no skin) with lettuce and tomato. Salad cream 4 syns
    D: grilled gammon steak (fat removed) with egg fried savoury rice (dry fried)

    Realise I have no hex a or hex b... I was planning on having weetabix for breakfast with skimmed milk but didn't get them earlier... so I might have them now before bed :)
    Then I need to get into bed before I comfort eat the house down!

    Hope I haven't sent anyone to sleep with my rambling! :)

    I'm no expert but I believe if you are doing EE you need to have a load of veg/salad etc with your meals?

    Like your tea hasn't got any salad or veg which is free?

    Good luck!!

    There was peppers and veg in the rice I should have said. I planned to have a fruit salad for afters which would have easily made up the 1/3 super free but I just didn't have the appetite. Like I said, not a 100% first day but I'm happy cos I didn't reach for junk xx

    Am on 3 nights from tonight just struggling with what to eat beforehand and while I'm at work... usually would be sugar and carb fest.... am off to check out people's food diaries for inspiration.

    Todays plan: EE
    B: 2 weetabix (HexB) semi - skimmed milk (HexA)
    No lunch as hopefully I will be napping before work!
    D: Jacket Potato, I can't believe it's not butter light (2.5syns) syn free chilli (with added veg and made with extra lean mince), 25g cheddar (5syns), Salad.

    Snacks for in the night: Fruit, danio yoghurt (small pot) (1syn), ham, cherry tomatoes.

    Really became addicted to sweet cereal bars and breakfast biscuits during my nights. They are quite high syn value. Going to get some Alpen light bars to have as hexB for the next set.

    That was the strangest night shift I've had in a while. No sugary carb snacks, no sugary drinks, no redbull. I feel ok... more awake actually.

    B: syn free chilli with added baked beans. Grapes, pineapple, plums x2
    D: jacket potato with I can't believe it's not butter light (2.5syns) beans and cathedral city 25g (5syns) salad

    Snacks planned for tonight... 2 boiled eggs, 3 babybel light (hexa), ham, cherry toms and salad.
    Ryvita (hexb)

    Roll on morning!!

    Argh. Narrowly managed to avoid all the chocolate and sweets at work last night. Very hectic shift. Think I am better off taking little snacky bits rather than a meal cos I don't get chance to sit down much undisturbed!

    B: banana and danio yoghurt (1syn)
    Nice sleep til half 4 (very unlike me)
    D: Roast chicken leg (skin removed), with vegetable stir fry frylight and soy sauce, boiled noodles

    Tonights munch: roast chicken leg (skin removed), 3 babybel light (hexa), ryvita (hexb), fruit.
    Diet coke

    You're doing great. Your meals are healthy as well as low cal. I think you're right about small snacks instead of meals with the time limitations at work plus you won;t have a big spell of feeling hungry. Good luck for the rest of your weight loss.

    Todays eatings....

    B: costa skinny vanilla latte small (hexa milk), vanilla syrup (2.5 syns)
    Chocolate muffin (22.5syns)

    D: chicken breast in syn free tomato sauce (passata, onions, garlic, peppers, mixed herbs, Worcestershire sauce), with cous cous and a big pile of broccoli

    I know I've not had a B choice yet... might save it for weetabix at bedtime and syn the milk if i get hungry. Or have some ryvita. Hmmm

    My eating is always a bit hit and miss on nights.
