ok guys and girls for those of you that saw my thread about my half a pound gain despite me thinking i had been really good, i too have decided to keep my own food diary here!! please do scrutinise, help, criticise and support me thru!! i fell off the plan 2 yrs ago after losing motivation but this time i want to do it and do it for good!!:break_diet:

so here's today!! its an extra easy day

brekkie: two small slices of w/m bread HEXB and egg

2 small digestives - hmmm 3 syns each so 6!

Lunch last nites spanish omlette with courgette carrottes and grilled mushrooms and about a spoonfull of baked beans topped with cheese HEXA

Had a look at your diary, as I saw you were upeset about gaining a pound. I would say your day looks good. The only thing I can see is that for an Extra Easy day, where is the 1/3 superfree in your breakfast?

Do you mind me asking if you have much weight to lose? If you are quite close to your Target, it is much harder to lose the pounds.

Personally I have never got on with Extra Easy. I find Red days, which limit the carbs are more effective for me.

i need to lose around 25 pounds or so, i think may be i need to go back to the good red and green days too!

so really i am no where nr target infact have only just started

Hi chick,
When I have eggs on toast, I always put the eggs on top of rocket and sliced tomatoes no matter what plan I'm on I try to get my superfree in.
9 syns is fine, it's what they are there for.
Your day looks good - I very red/green/EE depending on what my evening meal is.
I'm sure you'll find writing it down helps.

ok!! after a mammoth morning at work i finally have time to write down my day so far!!

2 small slices of w/m bread - HEXb and an egg

Daddy of all baked potato with cheese and beans! i'm going to count both HEXA in this as i dont want to under estimate!!

Dinner is Daal with kidney beans, dry spiced cabbage and potato curry with a big side salad!

soooo i guess that makes it a green day, i havent used any syns i may use 2-3 in the evening but i would prefer not to! i have lots going on this weekend so not sure how well i will stay on the plan!!

Where is your fruit and veg Hun?? These are the "bulk" things that make you full, so that you dont get the munchies too often.
