Slinky by Christmas!

So I started back at class last weds after trying (and not succeeding) by myself for a few weeks. I thought putting my meals/ food/ thoughts on here might help seeing as so many people look to have had great success!

Yesterday I was really hungry - think it was a combination of the 3hour treck I went on on saturday (my idea but moaned to my OH all the way about having to walk uphill) and the cold.

Anyway. I ate...

EE day

Bk - 2 boiled eggs and a 42g slice wm bread HEB
Milk in tea throughout the day HEA

Dinner - pasta and veggie sauce (1/2 tsp olive oil) 1 syn

Tea - At a curry house tabdoori salmon (9 syns) and boiled rice

I felt very smug about staying away from the naughties at the Indian restaurant. I guessed at the salmon using the syns for tandoori chicken.??????

I also eat plenty of damsons during the day - me and OH went picking those and sloe's and made damson/ sloe gin for xmas......... dont even want to think how many syns there will be in that!

Monday 27th Sept EE Day

EE Day

Have really enjoyed my food today. I wore quite a fitted dress for work today that I felt like a well stuffed sofa in when I wore it about 2 weeks ago; it felt almost comfortable today. It could be completely psychological but I do feel less bloated already.
Has been a good day food wise - may well go to bed early so I dont get the munchies.

Bk - plain Oats-so-simple (HEB) with banana
Milk in teas throughout the day (HEB)

snack - apple

Lunch - Tuna pasta

snack - wafer thin ham

Tea - prawn stir fry with egg noodles with teriyaki sauce... gorgeous!!!
2tbsp teriyaki sauce (3syns)
Hoping for a good day tomorrow before my first weigh in on weds morning - fingers crossed!

There was a woman there tonight who'd lost 7lbs in her first week but that was never going to happen for me!

Saturday & Sunday

Ive had no internet access this weekend - like going cold turkey. Its now sunday evening and Im quite pleased overall with my eating and drinking over the weekend.

Got up good and late - the first lie in ive managed in months. Im usually a 6am girl. Me and the other half, despite planning a weekend of doing nothing and doing a 'John and Yoko' lie in decided to head for the hills and set off for Chatsworth House. (Thought we'd have a nosy at the sotherby's auction - hilarious, when we got there we found you needed to buy a catalogue for £30 just to get in!!!!) so it was a picnic in the car park and a walk around the grounds for £2 instead - cheapskates.

Long way of saying we got out of bed and made a gorgeous winter veg soup to take out with us for lunch.


Gorgeous, it tasted like christmas dinner in a bowl!
1 walls mini milk (1.5syns)

Tea - Salmon coated in 1 tbsp patak;s tikka paste (1.5syns) and baked with 'dirty rice'. (boiled rice with fried onions, pepper and spinach - oil HEB)

Bought a small battle of wine. The syns for a 175ml glass are 6 but this bottle was 185ml so will class it as 6.5syns.

Also milk in tea for HEA



Horrible - pXXXed it down all day. have been house bound!

Bk - Muler light and respberries (SS)

Lunch - Roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips and swede with 1 tbsp oil (HEB), broccoil, 1 aunt bessie yorkshire pud (3syns), 50g paxo stuffing (4syns) and bisto best veggie gravy (2syns)

Tea - Gammon grill and 2 poached eggs, FF yoghurt

Tuesday 5th Oct EE Day

well a brisk walk in the wind with noone around was all it needed and loads of water - not half the billy barrel belly I felt this morning.
I have weigh in tomorrow so have tried to be super good today. My work trousers feel a good bit better already but the gorgeous size 14 Karen Millen dress i intend to wear to a wedding 3 weeks on friday still looks a little tight (it was an ebay bargain!)- i hope to get as much off as possible by then. Or am I be unrealistic?
I really dont want to have to fork out for a size 16 when i dont want to be that weight for long.

Today so far ive eaten...

Bk - Milk in tea HEA
Strawberries and an actvia snack pot

lunch - pasta salad with cottage cheese, a huge orange

tea - I have some roasted veggie soup for later.

Hope you are all having a good day

Tea - Tuna chilli and rice

Was VERY P'ed off - Ive got into a bit of a Fig thing, like them with my breakfast or in yoghurt.
My BF thought he was doing me a good thing by buying me a bag of dried figs - after eating one I was horrified to discover that they are 2.5 syns EACH!!!!! Didnt tell him but Ive binned them - choice 2 dried figs vs just short of a glass of wine - no contest!!!!!!

Friday 8th Oct

Hope you all ahve a good evening (if anyone reads this)

saturday 9th

BF surpised me with a weekend away. We went to anglesey and he'd booked a nice little B&B for us. We had a good long walk along the headland on Sat - gorgeous. Was lovely and sunny and warm but was SO windy - felt like Id had a huge workout by the time we made it back to the B&B

Bk(before I left) -mushroom omlette

Lunch - 200g sushi 1syn (the best the service station had to offer!!)

Tea - We opted for a curry in the end as most other options were very pub grubbish which I thought was very difficult to control.

I had the planned tandoori chicken with boiled rice 9syns
But... I caved in big time and had 2 poppodoms and all the lime pickle etc. Am guessing 13syns - looking back it was so not worth it.
On the plus side i didnt have the half bottle of wine id taken along for when we got back to the B&B so the day wasnt as bad as it could have been.
Feel very guilty though as Ive not gone really over my syns before. Call it flexi-syns.

Was staying in a B&B last night so was saintly this morning and turned down the fry up (polishes halo)
In the end..........

HEA - milk
Bk - Poached egg on 1 slice wholemeal toast HEB

Dinner -Anyone got any guessing on the syns for 'buttered/ roasted' veg at a carvery? I had very lean roast beef, boiled potatoes, NO yorkshires, No stuffing and 2 tsp gravy!
Thought the cabbage (which i had a heaped tbsp of) tasted a bit too good and think was probably buttered and the carrots (2tbsp) looked roasted so were probably cooked in oil.
Am putting 10syns over for this.

Tea - 3 tangerines, 1 activia yoghurt, 2 donut peaches.
