    Well ladies,

    After a brief encounter with WW which I tried at 18 years old & had forgotten how much I'd needed to sleep off the hunger for it to bloody work (not now possible with a 6 month old!!) I've come back to the ol'trusty SW :)

    Started this journey last March weighing in at 17st 10lbs, lost half a stone...and then in April, got accidentally pregnant! (little miracle!) got sick with it and lost quite a bit during & after. I balanced out at a new weight in May this year of 15st 9lbs.
    People say the mum-tum pounds are harder to shift - at first, I'd called mums lazy, and was ignorant to it, but I'm actually amazed as to how much a womans body changes once you've had a child. I had a section - so that means I'm likely at some point to encounter 'apron belly' and feel the lower part of my stomach is my definite problem area due to pregnancy etc.
    Anyway, to cut a long story short since May 10 I've managed to get down to 13st 13lbs, its been a tough journey and I STS for 7 weeks running give or take going up and coming back down a pound or two.
    At first, I blamed the plan, but looking back the plan works fantastically, abusing it however by gorging til you're about to burst probably isn't the best way forward! But hey, I'm honest, right :) ??

    So, here I am.
    And, I pledge, that by christmas 2010 I will be at least 12st 7lbs, that gives me 1st 6lbs to aim for, off by xmas this year.
    I also pledge to fill this diary in, daily, even if nobody so much glances at it, just for me :)

    Wednesday 11th August 2010

    Well today has been TOTALLY messed up!
    So, until tommorow when I get my ass back into things, this is going to be a day where I've aimed for 1500 calories & stuck to it.
    An argument with the hubby, a broken fridge and other things along the way have meant, yup, you guessed it my game plan is well & truly out the window for this particularly cruddy wednesday!

    Is it green, is it red, is it ee? Who knows!
    Here goes, though:

    Breakfast:
    1 x banana
    2 x choc w'bix (HEB1 in theory!)(2 syns)
    Skim milk (HEA1 in theory)

    Lunch:
    Weight watchers Beef Hotpot (6 syns)
    1 x Alpen Light (HEB2 in theory!)
    Hazelnut hot chocolate (1.5 syns)

    Tea:
    Quorn Mince (175g)
    Pasta, wholemeal, (50g)
    Maris Piper Potatoes (100g) Made into sw chips
    Chilli-con-carne sauce - half a jar (3 syns)

    Dessert:
    1 x banana
    1 x vanilla muller-light yoghurt

    Snacks later:
    HEB2 Alpen light bar
    Milky sweet coffee, remained of HEA1

    Hmmm maybe just maybe I can pull this off as a green day with minimum damage?

    Syns: 12.5 :) Not so bad afterall, and I know I'm under 1500 cals ;)

    Hi, Aim for comfortably full rather than stuffed and take your time over your food. I'm not sure I could eat that much personally anymore though I'd give it a good go.:)

    Main thing I noticed is lack of superfree food, it's especially important while you're doing EE. You don't have any at breakfast or dinner. You have salad and peppers at lunch so great that counts as your superfree.:) Perhaps have superfree as snacks too. Superfree on your plate reduces the amount of green and red free foods which is sort of the point of EE.

    Other than that your day looks fine, you have your HE's and syns.

    I would agree that it would be good to increase your superfree foods. Aim for one third of your daily food to be superfree (though this is just a guide, not a rule that is set in stone).
    So you could have had grilled tomato and mushrooms with breakfast an apple for your morning snack, cherry toms and cucumber instead of sweetcorn in your pasta salad, broccoli with your tea instead of rice...
    This does not mean eating more, as having more ingredients in your meal means you'll eat less of everything, so without meaning to you will reduce your carb and meat intake, helping you to lose weight!

    Simples ;)

    Like missyp said I wouldn't have rice and potato as I can't eat too many carbs but everyone is different. I try and eat only when I'm hungry and grab fruit as a snack although sometimes only something like ham will do-lol

    Argh thanks girls :( wish I knew what I was doing I felt I'd done well today, too, as things like sweetcorn etc were only 1tbsp measures and the pasta was 40g so I figured if I measured my food out I'd be taking control of my portions..But will take all ur advice onboard and try to re-think for tommorow :) thanks xx

    I'd have that as a green day actually. Syn the ham and with 2 HEXb on green, you'll gain the 8.5 syns from the weetabix, which might come in handy later if you're craving anything :D
