After my second week maintaining I've decided to start putting everything into a food diary and try and see where I'm going wrong! Been on SW 5 weeks so far and lost 10lb but I now want to be losing at least a couple of lb a week again! I only ever do green days as don't like to eat meat, so here goes...

Sunday 30th May-
Breakfast-scrambled egg with 1 laughing cow light (1/5 hea) -banana -tea with drop of skim milk

Snack -Alpen light bar (1/2 heb1) -low calorie jelly (1/2syn)

Lunch -super noodles w/ chicken stock cube, no powder sachet (free) -2xryvita (1/2 heb2) and 2xlaughing cow light (2/5 hea)

4pm-free chips w/ 1syn ketchup
-onken fat free w/ frozen blueberries Been hungry all week so now just gonna let it be and eat free food rather than snack on syns or not eat at all.

Dinner -2xquorn meatballs in tomato sauce (free) spaghetti and courgette. 26g lo cheese (hea2) so will now have to syn the bit of milk I had this morning.

0.5 syn-jelly

So you had an alpen light and a ryvita as 1hexb and laughing cows as hexa you could use your other cheese (26g you could have had 28g full fat or 42g reduced fat) as a hexb and not have to syn the milk as it could be your second hexa.

Unless I've read that aaaaall wrong!

Other than that sounds good - chin up chuck :)

Ps.. Found yaaaa xx

Which super noodles are you using? It's only the low fat ones that are free.

xx
I use any but always throw the little powder sachet away and put a stock cube in as I thought that was the syns..really hope I'm not wrong or I've been doing too few syns! xx

Yeah the mousse was worth 3 syns considering I went to the pics and ate an alpen light surrounded by popcorn and nachos! So it was probably a 1st if you think it was 'okay'..I miss you too maybe quiz tomorrow? You can see me for the first minutes of my bday :) xx

The sachets don't make a difference, it is the fat content in the noodles itself that is the syn value. 3.5syns for 100g of cooked noodle.

It is only the low fat version in which the noodle itself is free.

xx
Oh god I live on noodles so probably been way over my syns every day. At least I know now and can make sure it's only low fat ones I use..lesson learned, thanks! xx

I would say you're not eating anywhere near enough, especially of fruit and veg. Most days you only seem to have one or two portions? The most I noticed was 3. Thats not even your five a day, never mind enough to pad out your food and fill you up, no wonder you're hungry! It just seems a lot of carbohydrate and cheese and not much else? What stuff do you like eating? Do you cook much/do you have time to?

For my first few weeks I couldn't eat enough veg and noticed last week I wasn't having enough, I'm really fussy about fruit which makes it difficult to snack on but i always fill whatever I make at night with veg so say spag bol will have broccoli peppers mushrooms green beans etc. I am gonna try to eat more, will just have to stick some veg next to my lunch and stuff and eat the fruit I do like if I'm hungry! Thank's for commenting :)

I was just going to pop in and say hello and say it's a really good idea to keep a diary ... but I've just read up from the bottom and realise you've got Beth watching your back ;) So as you are a Greenie I will leave you in her very capable hands :D Ask her for her chilli recipe ... she would live off the stuff if she could, I'm sure!
