Hi everyone,

I started slimming world on Thursday - I have switched from weight watchers as i have quite a big appetite and thought this would be easier for me-fingers crossed!

I was working overseas for 4 years and put on nearly 3 stone so I want to try and lose the weight again.
When I first got back (January) i was 13stone 5 lbs, last Wednesday I weighed in at 12 stone 2.
I deally i would like to get to 10 and a half stone (any less would be great!!).
Honestly I am trying slimming world for 2-3 weeks to see how i do, if it is working i will stop going to WW and join up at my local SW! I normally get weighed on Wednesdays but I am not going to get weighed this week - im going to leave it until next week.

Ive been looking on here since i started SW and i think its great!!! So ive decided to start a food diary and then if i am making mistakes etc hopefully someone will let me know!!

So here is the plan for my meals tomorrow-

MONDAY - GREEN DAY
Breakfast - SW quiche with beans
Lunch - Not sure yet
Tea - Egg fried noodles with veg

Snacks - Not sure yet
Drinks- Green tea and sugar free squash/diet fizzy drinks.

Ive had a pretty bad weekend so for the next week and half i am going to try not have syns.

Hi Shelley, welcome along - I hope you enjoy SW. I do green so can have a look at your diary when you've filled it in a bit more, until then - don't forget your healthy extras and also it's not recommended to have no syns. It can be counter productive and even if you just have 5 a day it can help you stay on track better. It's only an extra 100 calories a day so will make no difference to your weight loss but can keep you on track mentally if you're not feeling deprived!

Good luck, I hope it works for you x

WEDNESDAY- Red day

I've struggled today- I think the salad cream was a waste of syns and I don't feel full with what I've ate !
I think the next time I do red I will be more prepared- maybe have salad with some nice ham etc. I don't know, I just think I feel more fulfilled on green.

I'm sat here now thinking about eating some mackerel fillets but I'm not sure if I should!!!
Aaarrgghh!!!

Any comments will be more than welcomed!!!
