    If anyone reads this and figures out anything I'm doing wrong, please, PLEASE tell me. Because I feel like I'm eating like a hound, I don't know how I'm going to lose weight, but anyway. I used a Slimming World sample 7 Day Menu from the website, with some substitutes when I didn't like something. And I bought the wrong Mayo, but anyway. I know I made some woeful mistakes the first few days but hopefully I have it straightened out now. My first official WI day is next Tuesday but I've been on the plan since Thursday so I'll update so far. I'm on Extra Easy plan and have no plans to deviate from it at the moment until I get my head around it and stop trying to calculate propoints.

    Friday (Day One)

    Breakfast: 2 Super Valu Cereal Bars (thought they were HEb but they are 6 Syns each) - 12 Syns. Banana, Cappuccino flavour Mullerlight.
    Lunch: Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, spring onion, pickled onions, hard boiled egg, 2 slices ham, 30g grated cheddar (HEa), dash of fat-free vinaigrette.
    Dinner: Prawns, spring onions, chilli, garlic, ginger, broccoli, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, chow mein noodles, 2 slices of Hovis Nimble (HEb).
    Snack: Few spoons of couscous with lemon juice, tomatoes, spring onions & peppers. 2 cups of tea with dash of skimmed milk (0.5 Syns each). Litre of water.
    SYNS: 13 (Stupid cereal bars, stupid me for not checking before I ate them!)


    Breakfast: 2 slices Hovis Nimble (HEb), Half an Avocado (6 Syns), 3 bacon medallions, 2 poached eggs. Bowl of orange segments. Coffee & dash skim milk.
    Lunch: Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, spring onion, pickled onions, 2 slices ham, tiny bit of cheese, dash of vinaigrette. Crisps made from 1 potato, frylight, & cayenne pepper.
    Dinner:Minute steak, slimming world chips, large flat mushroom, red onion, grilled tomato, half can of peas.
    Snacks: Mullerlight coconut with raspberries and 1/3 a banana. 2 packet of crisps from a Multipack (6.5 Syns each). 2 slices of ham, 1 babybel (HEa). coffee with dash milk. 2 litres water.
    Healthy Extras: I thought I could split my HEa up to have some milk and a babybel and a bit of cheese, but I know now I'm supposed to stick to one thing.
    SYNS: 20 Stupid, stupid, stupid. Had a chat with myself and no more crisps. Can't have them in the house. This won't work if I have crisps.


    Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, 2 Hovis Nimble (HEb).
    Lunch: Potatoes roasted with frylight & mixed herbs, carrot & turnip mash, 2 yorkshire puddings (3 Syns each), roast beef, 5g bisto granules (1 Syn), 1/2 can of peas.
    Dinner: Butternut Squash soup (made with BNS, onion, stock cube, garlic) with bits of leftover roast beef stirred in.
    Snack: Iced Frappe made with a Mullerlight Cappuccino, ice, 1/2 cup black coffee and 350ml skimmed milk (HEa). Nectarine. 2 litres water.
    SYNS: 7

    I had a corn on the cob with dinner too, the cod was really nice but really small :/ Anyway, I'm full, and the grapes & oranges killed any sweet craving. Shopping day is on Friday so I'm going to try and use up as much as I can tomorrow, I'm a disaster for buying too much food.

    I really can't see how this is going to work, I feel massive.
