    I guess I should start this by introducing myself as the ultimate serial 'dieter' that I am! :p
    I'm 23 and mummy to Eddie-Jay (Now 1yrs old) and have managed to lose and maintain a loss of 3st since shortly before I realised I was pregnant with him in May 09.
    So as it stands I'm 202lbs (14st 6lbs) as of friday this week the 25th of Feb after a slight gain. It was my sons 1st birthday the 20th and we had two mini-house parties for him :D
    So my overall aim is to reach 10st 10lbs just under 4st to lose. Im currently a size 14 despite my heavy weight - I have a large frame and been blessed with good bone structure, so the lowest is 10st 10lbs and the highest forseeable (reached before!) is 12st on the dot.
    Here I am.. after countless attempts diet switching calorie counting this that & the other. I'm sticking with SW. It WORKS plainly and simply, its me that needs to work with it :rolleyes:

    Feel free to comment or add me as a buddy on here :p

    Love as always,

    Siobhan xx

    Saturday 26th February (Flexi Day!)


    So guys today is a 'flexi' day (or was since this is in past-tense) went bowling with the sister-in-law and a few other friends & knew beforehand that I would be drinking etc and so tried to be good throughout the day to try and limit the damage - here goes:

    Breakfast:
    None! Oops woke up too Late. Had a cuppa out of 150ml HEA allowance of skimmed milk

    Lunch:
    Jacket potato (Small), 1/2 tin of baked beans and 14g of grated cheddar cheese - other half of HEA (must stress I *dont* advocate using HE's this way but my consultant who is a good friend assured me its fine ;))
    Muller light, 1/2tbsp of Honey *0.5 syns* & small banana.

    Snack before going out:
    2 clementines

    Snack whilst bowling:
    Walkers steak and onion crisps - 8 syns

    Drinks whilst bowling:
    Malibu & diet coke x 3 (25ml measures) - 7.5 syns
    Bulmers - 1.5 bottles (regular) - 18 syns
    Bottle of Asti Spumante - 30 syns (approx)
    Slices of pizza x 2 - 20 syns approx
    Chips - 5 syns approx
    Kebab meat & bit of mayo - 10 syns approx

    So all in all a rather bingeful night although for me thats actually quite timid. I feel it IS better though to write all this down than to ignore it and pretend it never happened..

    Flexi syn count?: Around 99 on the dot! If I had eaten more yesterday I would be a little worried but because I hardly ate before going AND played 3 games of bowling I feel slightly better about it ;)

    Sunday 27th of February (Semi-Flexi..I'm easing myself in, here!)

    Well today is sunday and *ordinarily* I would have let today be uber flexi and ended the weekend with a bang (otherwise known as sweet and sour chicken and chips from the local chuffin chinese!! :rolleyes:) but alas I've actually been pretty good. Not fantastic (that comes tommorow) but definitely better than before..So...

    Breakfast:
    2 x slices of wholemeal bread from 400g loaf HEB
    Mushrooms, sliced and dry fried, 1/3 tin of baked beans.

    Lunch:
    Muller light yogurt & small banana
    cup of coffee made from 300ml skimmed milk HEA

    Snack: Sugar free redbull, clementine & small apple

    Dinner:
    Corned beef ash (potatoes, stock cubes, mushrooms, carrots, onion and corned beef) 5 syns for corned beef
    1 x slice of wholemeal small loaf bread (I was staaarving by this point!) 3 syns

    Snacks:
    Options hot chocolate made with HEA milk from earlier - 2 syns
    Ryvita currants & rye cracker breads (oops!) x 3 - 9 syns
    Raspberries (handful)

    Total syns for day: 19
    Overall really pleased with today. Decided not to be so harsh about the syn count as I really havent eaten a massive amount today majority fruit and vegetables etc. Ready for tommorow with gusto!

    Love as always,

    Siobhan xx

    Mmm corned beef yummy! Sounds like a lovely meal!

    Went to Hungry Horse pub for dinner today and they do a bucket of chicken wings with a dip 10 per bucket....were divine...even though I had to mess at getting the skin off!

    If you struggle this week or just need a kick up the bum (big or small kick!) let me know!

    Sounds like your food plan is going fab! The only thing I couldnt understand is having 5.5syns on a shape yoghurt, is it worth it?

    I need a kick up the bum right now :-( not lost in 3 weeks now and I'm getting disheartened.

    Hope your well x

    Nikki - totally NOT worth it to be honest..
    I really fancied it and thankfully it was the last one :eek:

    I tried calorie counting a few weeks and ended up in a terrible mess - and full of spots!!

    Aw hun why the lack of losses? Just one of those things or struggling to stick to plan?
    Sometimes it all gets a bit much doesn't it xx

    I try so hard to stick to plan and prob having my full 15syns a day so that might the problem.. Unless my alcohol consumption is a little high haha. I'm on the wagon now so no alcohol for a week and see how it goes between now and Tuesday.

    That's good that it was the last one then! Hopefully it's all good planning now then! X
