    Hello, I need to get back on the wagon! I'm fed up of being on and off weight watchers all the time, I feel ready for a lifestyle change. I think simply filling may be it, fingers crossed! I'm new to this so please tell me if I'm going wrong :)

    Oh, and you may see me counting branflakes as free, I don't think they are on the plan but I'm going to count them freely as I have them everyday before work so as long as I don't overeat them or start eating them as snacks I don't think there will be a problem. We'll that's the plan haha! If they cause me to gain then I'll have to find an alternative :sigh:

    Wish me luck on my journey to a healthier me! :)

    Start weight- 10stone 1pound. Going to be weighing in on mondays

    I'd defiantly recommend. I thought my butternut squash was abit on the small side so used less stock but still gotten 3 good sized portions out of it.

    Breakfast - bran flakes and water

    lunch - 2 crumpets, half a tin beans and 10g of cheese - 1 point

    dinner - quorn Bolognese with spaghetti

    snacks this evening - curly wurly 3 points, 4 Aldi wurthers originals - 1 point

    5 points used today, so 7 / 49 weeklies used :)

    :) Thanks for subscribing ladies! :welcome: Found this diary so far is helping me stay on track, day 4 woo, attempted to diet so many times and haven't made it past day one so this is an achievement haha :angel09::party0011:

    Hi clare xx, soup recipe is below, I just adjusted the stock dependent on how big you think your squash is and how thick / soupy you like it. Also I didn't bother toasting the curry powder I just added it to the stock (I'd of 100% burnt it)!! :yuk:

    1 portion(s) (large) Butternut Squash, peeled, de-seeded and diced into 1 inch cubes
    2 medium Onion, All Types, quartered
    2 cube(s) Vegetable Stock Cube, vegetable, make up to 2 pints with hot water
    1 1/2 teaspoons (level) Curry Powder
    1 pinch Salt, to taste
    1/4 teaspoons Black Pepper
    2 medium Spring Onions, thinly sliced, to garnish
    Preheat oven to Gas Mark 7/220°C/425°F. Place squash and onion in a large roasting pan or baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, until squash is tender. Don't worry if some of the pieces get a bit browned - this will add to the roasted flavour of the soup.

    Remove from oven. Tip into saucepan and add stock. Bring up to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool about 15 minutes - do not pour hot soup directly into food processor, or you risk it exploding. Purée in batches in blender or food processor.

    Toast curry powder in a small frying pan over low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes - be careful not to burn it. Stir into puréed soup. Season to taste and divide between six bowls. Garnish with spring onions and serve.
