Saturday

Green:

Breakfast: 28g Sultana bran (HEB) and little ss milk (HEA)

Lunch: Mug shot

Dinner: Jacket Potato and Beans and 28g cheese (HEA)

Snacks: One fish finger (2.5 syns), one rich tea biscuit (2 syns), one light Alpen bar (HEB)

I am planning to have some melon and kiwi now, and might have a ff Activia yogurt in a bit, or my other light Alpen bar.

I don't have green days very often, am I on the right lines? I realise I haven't had as much veg as I normally do on a red day?

Green day

Breakfast: 28g sultana bran (HEB) and a splash of ss milk (HEA)

Lunch: 96g pack of M and S veggie sushi (1/2 syn)

Dinner: Sweet potato and veg and pork chop (have weighed pork chop and worked out it's HEB + 5 syns)

I haven't eaten much today, and hubby is still at work and will be bringing the sweet potato with him, so dinner will still be a while. I took fruit with me, but have been driving all day so didn't have a chance to eat it. As a result, I am absolutely starving!! I hope today's lack of food doesn't affect this week's weigh in.

Hi noticed you were asking for comments on your diary so I had a look.

The first thing I noticed was that sometimes you aren't eating your full allowance of healthy extras you are only eating part of them, you say a little milk from hea or 1 Alpen light instead of 2 as a heb. on one day you had porridge as a heb but you didn't include the extra scan bran to go with it, for lunch one day you had one dairylea light triangle as a hea it says in the book you need 4 as a hea.

Are you having them and not writing them down or are you not eating them.

Are you filling in a sw diary, it looks to me as if you aren't eating enough, my free food box is full and I make sure I have the right amount of hea + b's and have settled on 10 syns a day and have lost 2 stone in 8 weeks, I mention that only to say that it is possible to lose eating everything the plan asks you to.

Have you read this thread it explains everything perfectly :D

hope you dont mind my comments,

good luck

Hi Soccermom - thanks so much for your time and comments.

I do write down everything I eat, so you are right that I don't eat all of my HEBs. I struggle with dairy, so in the morning I have a splash of milk, and most of it is left when I finish my cereal.

I thought I was eating quite well the first couple of weeks, but last week floundered a little on the fruit and veg front.

You are also right that I don't have scan bran with my porridge - honestly, I don't even know what it is!! I will ask on the main board in case you don't come back on here!

I am going food shopping tomorrow, so shall plan my meals, and get lots of free food to fill out my eating for the week.

I haven't read the link so will have a lookie to remind myself.

Thank you so much, and well done on your weight loss - you are obviously doing something right!!
