ProPoints Stackheads 2012 Weight Loss Mission

Stackhead

Slow and steady...
Afternoon my fellow Miniminers,

I thought i'd start this food diary as it really kept me on track when I was doing Slimming World so lets see if it works for Weight Watchers.

I made the switch in October 11, didn't do very well I was very much off the bandwagon, I lost about 7lbs or so. Then I decided to stop thinking about food for all of December, I think I needed that break to really refocus on what i'm doing.

So now it's 2012 and it's time for a fresh assault on my weight. If I lose 2lbs a week every week all year thats just over 7stone :eek: but i'm not setting myself that target :) Instead i'm going to half it, I want 3.5 stone by the time 01/01/2013 rolls around, that's 1lb a week. Last year I lost 2.5 stone but I fell off the wagon A LOT!

So bring on 2012, it's going to be a good year!

Hey! Welcome to the 'other' side :D
How are enjoying your first week of WW? Are you managing to get your head round the whole point everything thing?

WW certainly makes you think about what you're eating! On SW I wouldn't think twice before scoffing a massive bowl of pasta but now I really sit and think about what i'm eating and how much i'm eating too.

I am just enjoying not having to cook every night, it's nice to just shove a ready meal in the oven or open a jar of pasta sauce and it not blow your diet!

Hey freshy! Nice of you to drop on in :)

So foodie times today:
Breakfast:
30g Special K (3)
Skimmed Milk (1)
Glass of Apple Juice (3)
Smoothie (3)

Lunch:
New potatoes (4)
Cucumber, tomato, onion, lettuce (0)
Light Mozzerella (2)
Sweetcorn (1)
Light Salad Cream (2)
Ham (1)
BGTY Wrap (3)
WW Vanilla Yogurt (1)
WW Fruit Crumble Bar (2)

Hola!

Food looks tasty!! Don't worry about the 7lbs it will come off in no time lovely. You have had great losses before I am sure you can do it again!

I had some kind of good news today- one of my managers friend is starting a new Slimming world group in Wragby and is looking for a clerk person to do the memberships and weigh ins etc, apparently you get free membership if you do it! I really hope I can do it, would be great to meet some new people and also get back to class!

Apart from that a reasonably quiet day- how was your day? xxx

Evening all,

Just got back from the cinema, my sister treated us to Sherlock Holmes (and some sweeties - but more of that later). The film was really good, much better than I was expecting it to be!

Anywhoose, I was nearly ripping my arm off for chocolate today (for those of you who don't know, i've given up chocolate for a month - just to see if I can do it), it didn't help that my sister kept offering me rolos during the film! I love rolos....:cry:

Ah well, never mind.

Afternoon peoples,

I really want some diet coke i'm getting some cravings. In fact, it's the first thing I wanted this morning (well it was this afternoon by the time I made it downstairs!).

I had planned on giving up chocolate for a whole month, but i'm not sure I can do that. I've given it up for 1 week as of tomorrow, so what i'm going to do is buy a multipack of curly wurlys when I go shopping, put them in the freezer and try and abstain until next Sunday, then I can have 1 curlywurly as a treat. I can also only have it if I do some studying (i've got an exam for work in Feb and I haven't opened the book yet!).

Anywhoose, foodie times for today:
Lunch:
BGTY Wrap (3)
1/2 can no drain tuna (2)
Light salad cream (1)
Cucumber, lettuce, spring onion (0)
Low fat custard pot (3)

Dinner:
WW Creamy Mushroom Pasta thingy (7)
Courgette & Mushrooms (0)
WW Chocolate Brownie Desert (4) <-- doesn't taste anything like chocolate so i'm not counting it in my no chocolate challenge!!

Snacks:
Cheesy Curls (2)
Walkers Baked, Cheese & Onion (3)
Nairns Oat Biscuits, Mixed Berry (6)
Bit of chicken (6)

Total: 37/45

Hello honey!

Why can't you have diet coke? Is it not allowed?

Good plan for the chocolate. What is your exam in? I have tons of coursework I need to be doing- I started a course September 2010 and am still trying to finish it (it is the equivalent of 9 A Levels) so I think i was a bit optimistic taking it and working full time. Can't bloody wait to finish it, it is such a chore!!

Whats for tea? I am trying diet coke turkey with veg!! We shall see what it turns out like! xx

Hey freshy,

I never tried the diet coke chicken thing, it just sounded WAY to weird, i'll drop by your diary later and check out how it was!

It's not that I CAN'T have diet coke, it's just that I was drinking too much of it last year, 2 or 3 cans a day most days, and it just seemed too much. So I thought i'd go cold turkey for a while and see how I get on :D

So week 1 officially down! Hell to the Ye-Ah. I know I WI on a Wednesday, but i started again on the 1st so it's now officially been an entire week. I've had a few hiccups, and today my Mum brought home so freshly baked soft white rolls... I swear there was nearly drool on the floor. Bread and butter is my ultimate downfall, i'd walk over chocolate and crisps anyday to get to some warm bread and butter...:drool:

Next week i'm not sure whats going on, I think i'll probably be out at the weekend and I know i'm going to Pizza Express on Tuesday, will have the pizza with the hole in the middle :D so no worries there.

Work is going to be the worse I think, a lot of people are coming up to my office from other offices and there's going to be a lot of :kissass: going on which drives me insane! So i've got to try and vent my frustration and not eat to make it better!

xx
