    So this isn't the first time i have restarted slimming world, there have been many times. Although i may say i feel ready to sort my diet out and get healthy, i have also said this many times before, but at the moment that is how i feel so for the time being i am rolling with that (i just hope this attitude is here for the long run!);)

    I have decided to start a fresh food diary so that i am not tainted for past experiences. I am hoping that it will encourage and make me accountable for what i eat. I am hoping that support and advice from others will encourage me to stick with it.

    I started recording a couple of days ago so i am going to try and get them put on here also before i put today's on.

    Ok so its Friday and i am deciding/thinking of having some wine! i just feel that i dont want to deprive myself of things cause i usually go all out then give up cause i get fed up. so i am trying to be good all week including the weekend but also have a few extra treats at the weekend so i dont feel like im missing out hoping that by doing this i will be able to stay on track and get right back on track tomorrow! Ive been good all day, so ill see how this works, normally i would think that i have failed by doing this and give up so im trying to look at it a little differently this time. Will up date with syns in a little while x
    The Photos don't do the dinner justice, it was so nice, and so filling! image-3261826670.jpg image-178640682.jpg

    Hi, thanks for your input xx

    Of course you can ask for the recipe! It's 2 x cans baked beans, with some chilli powder, cooked sausages topped with sliced red onions then topped with cheddar light slices, topped with mashed potato and grated cheese! It's really tasty!

    Wow!! Amazing weight loss! Well done, Tracey and thanks so much for the brilliant photos and info about what you're eating. Just writing my shopping list and skipping through some of the Food Diaries for ideas. So glad I have done because you've totally inspired me! :) Your chips and wedges look so much better than any I make. Whatever I do, they are never crunchy and golden!

    Aww thank you kathy, those enchiladas were lovely, I had them again today, really please that you have been inspired that's really great!

    When I make my chips I usually leave the skin on and put them straight in the oven, I do t bother to boil them! I put loads of fry light on and garlic salt and usually Nandos spice chip salt and cook on a low heat for a while then turn the oven up towards the end to crisp them up.
