    Slimming World
    Well I started Slimming world yesterday after years on/off WW.
    I have lost 21lbs this year following the old WW points system, but I found I was starting to slip into my old ways of cooking 1 meal for my family and 1 for me.
    This of course was me to allow me to spend my points on crap.

    So I am hoping that by following Slimming World, my attitude to food will change.
    I need to stop eating the crap/bold options and look at food differently.
    I want to enjoy what I eat, and not end up in bed early every night cause I am hungry.

    I am not going to weigh myself for 2 weeks, and this is to allow me time to get the SW plan into my head and hopefully stop counting points.
    Found myself doing that yesterday and nearly freaked when I realised that I was over points wise what I would usually eat.
    So they two weeks will allow my body to the quality and quantity of food it will be getting.

    Anyway here is my plans for yesterday.
    (I am following extra easy, so please, please please give me advise or tell me where I am going wrong!) :)

    Day 1: Tuesday 31/05/11 (My wedding Anniversary)

    Breakfast:
    2 Alpen Light Bars (HEXB) broken into MullerLight with Apple and Banana

    Milk (HEXA) for cups of Tea thru the day.

    Snack:
    Blackberries

    Lunch:
    Tuna, Lettuce, Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes, Grated Carrot, Apple
    WW Vanilla Yogurt

    Dinner:
    Roast chicken (skin removed), Cauliflower, Broccoli, Green Beans, Cous Cous, Gravy (2 SYNS)

    Snack:
    Cake (8 SYNS)

    Total SYNS: 10

    Day 3: June 2nd 2011

    Well yesterday went ok. Wasn't hungry going to bed, but I didnt feel that I had gone overboard.
    I think I stayed within Syns and followed EE yesterday, although there was a quick change to dinner.

    So dinner yesterday was:
    Baked potatoe, 2 spoons of baked beans (yuck!), beetroot, tomatoes, spring onions, lettuce, radish. - Everything was yum except the beans - Forgot how much I dont like them. :p

    Anyway so far the plan is to follow EE.

    Breakfast:
    1 weetabix (1/2 HEXB), Banana, Apple, WW vanilla yogurt.
    Milk (HEXA) for cups of Tea

    Snack:
    Alpen Light (1/2 HEXB), Apple

    Lunch:
    2 slices of wholemeal bread (6 syns), Tuna, Tomatoe, cucumber, lettuce, Strawberries

    Dinner:
    Cauliflower, Brocolli, Green Beans, Quorn Style Fish Cake,
    Apple

    Snack:
    WW vanilla yogurt, Cadburys Animal Crackers (5.5 syns)

    Total SYNS for today = 11.5

    Plan on drinking 2 litres of water!!!

    - Girls am I following the plan correctly? Is there I am doing wrong or missing out on? - All help appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi sleepymum!

    I started back on SW last week, but lost a lot of weight with this plan about 7 years ago. I always use the green days - extra-easy didn't use to exist. I like green days because I genuinely don't feel hungry. What is extra-easy exactly?

    Looking at your diary, you ask if you're eating too much... I'd ask if you're eating enough?! If you're hungry at/after lunch or in the morning, consider adding some carbohydrate or protein? Otherwise you might be tempted to eat more syns. That's what happens to me anyway. Perhaps you could try some brown rice (free) mixed into yoghurt for a kind of rice pudding? Maybe a boiled egg for slow-release protein? Although it looks like you're snacking on lots of superspeed food so maybe you're OK hunger-wise:)
    (Although I never used to eat much rice, I'm a big brown rice fan now and always carry a pot of it mixed with herbs around in case I start to get hungry!) I wouldn't survive on your lunch!!

    Are weetabix definitely HEB?

    Apart from my question about weetabix this looks great and rather delicious - I love looking at other people's food diaries and trying to get some ideas! Congrats on the weight loss so far with WW, I'm sure you'll find SW far less restrictive - try not to think of it as a diet, I used to be like that too until my SW consultant told me I should never feel hungry and as if I was dieting:D

    All looks good to me! I do green days all the time as I'm veggie, and I was always worried about eating too much carbs but this diet really changes the way I look at food!! Would just say the quorn bakes have syns in them (nit sure how many) but doesn't look like you had many syns anyway!! Good luck!!!xxx

    Hi fit4hols.
    Thanks for the advise. To be honest I havent really felt hungry yet, but it is only day 4 and like you said ww was so restrictive that i really dont think i was eating enough then.
    Also I do think there is still a part of me that is still counting points...... Its a mind change so hopefully it will click. I am hoping that this is a lifestyle change.
    Extra easy is a mix of red and green days and you only have 1hexa and 1hexb. Green was fun today so I think I will be having more of them.
    I love reading other diaries too.
    Thanks again.

    Oh sorry, I realised I was reading a US pdf of healthy extras!:eek: You're right of course, Weetabix is a HEB. Glad you're not feeling hungry - I love green days too, I don't eat a lot of meat so the amount I can eat as a HEB is fine. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Thanks for the info about extra easy too, still reckon I'll stick with my tried and tested green:D

    Stay strong this weekend!;)

    Thanks. Actually looking forward to the weekend as I think it will be easier to follow the plan when I am at home.
    Its hard sorting out lunch ideas. Only have hot water. No microwave or fridge. Will be looking thru diaries for ideas.

    Hi sleepymum,

    Looks as though you're doing just fine. The quorn fishcakes are around 5.5 syns I think, can't remember exactly. The fishfingers are 2 per finger if you fancy them instead some time. Also the Ainsley couscous only works out around 1.5 per packet cooked as I recall - certainly not as high as 4 syns. You're definitely not eating too much either!

    Good luck on the plan, hope you enjoy it x

    Hi Sleepymum :wavey:

    Sounds like you are adjusting to SW very nicely! I don't go to a class either ... it's just me & Minimins against the world! The Syns thread is quite good for finding out how many syns are in products (like the Ainsley Harriott couscous) - well worth a look there before eating something you might regret ;)

    Good luck!
