TFMD's diary

I thought i'd start a diary to look back on and keep myself on track
Today was my last day in work for a week..Bliss - Relaxing week coming up!!
Green day today

Was running late so I skipped brekkie! Naughty
I had a banana when I got to work.
Throughout the day I had
apple, fuller for longer yogurt x 2
Lunch was an Ainsley Harriott cuppa soup, 5 scan brans, some carrot sticks and cottage cheese.
Couple of cups of coffee.
Then I went home and had 2 Jammie dodgers and a digestive biccy! Why immediately sprang to mind after I ate them!!that was a massive 11 1/2 syns...So bad I feel I could kick myself....
Am having potato wedges and home made burgers (HEB) for tea...
I usually drink about 2 litres of water a day, but haven't today.
I also try to get on the cross trainer for 20 mins a day.
I am struggling at the moment I have been hovering over the stone mark for weeks and I can't seem to get over it!!

I get very sad and feel like throwing in the towel. But I always come round and feel proud of the 13lb I have lost already...
I WILL lose more!!!!!!!!!!
I have to. I am so uncomfortable when it's hot and I hate feeling big!!
Moan moan moan, blah, blah, blah..
Sorry if anyone reads this..
I don't mean to moan...
I am the only one who can lose the weight..It was so easy to put it on...
Feel free to add to this if you like..

Hopefully Monday I shall put a weight loss on here.

Wish me luck

I am going to drink 2 litres if water today.
I feel a bit more positive than I did yesterday, I am pleased to say.
We are having chicken curry (SW of course)! rice and onion bhajis for tea.
No syns used at the moment, so I may use some of them on a pudding..Not sure what yet!

Will add more later

I had a lovely chicken curry and rice, with onion bhajis, cucumber raita and mango chutney (syns)
for pudding we just had fresh pineapple, raspberries and blueberries with Vanilla Mullerlight..

Today is a Green day.

Banana and coffee for breakfast.
Lunch was bacon (HEB), 2 fried eggs, beans, mushrooms and 2 slices nimble (HEB) coffee
Tea is going to be a jacket sweet potato baked with the flesh hollowed out an egg cracked in and put back in the oven with a bit of grated cheese on the top (HEA) and salad.

Doing the cross trainer for another 25 mins maybe more if I can.
Another ok day so far I think.
I am feeling a bit more positive...
Ooops Sunday missing!!
Never mind, it was a good day anyway.

Monday 21st Sept - Weigh Day!!
STS - which is ok.
Green Day
2 weetabix for brekkie, with milk from allowance
SW Scotch broth (syn free) for lunch followed by strawberries, pineapple and vanilla muller
2 litres of water and several coffees.
Tea was egg chips and tomatoes
2 slices of bread used as syns....
No other syns used today.

I think I have to look at the amount of syns I am not having as it may be an issue.
I have opted to complete a food diary for my consultant to have a look at this week...
Haven't been on the cross trainer today either! Bad!
Tomorrow is another day and I plan to have a game of tennis with Hubby...That should be good....I haven't played tennis for ages and really enjoy it...Hubby not well, so if he is rough tomorrow we will do some heavy gardening instead...I'll go on the cross trainer later in the evening.

Although I haven't physically lost weight I feel as if I have lost inches. My clothes are fitting better and are getting bigger...So as long as I keep up the exercise I shall lose the weight...

I am a bit disappointed at the slowness of it all, but I shall persevere with it..
Here's to the start of a good weigh loss week...

for some reason full and punctuation marks take me to a quick find window at the bottom of my page! Oh well

I am feeling very positive today...I still have the vertigo but not as bad as yesterday, so just a little glitch me thinks.
Back on the cross trainer tomorrow...I know it doesnt really help with the weight loss, but it helps to tone and keep me fit..
Next week I shall be walking as Rich is on 6-2, so no lifts to work....

I feel I have lost weight this week....I know its still only early on in the week and things can change, but I think I have lost a wee bit...Even if its only half a pound, that will take me to my stone award...So I will be happy with half...

Hi John T

Thanks for that, I am trying, and will continue to do so until I get to where I am happy at.
A 'syn' is basically a sin. In Slimming World it's short for Synergy. There are 3 basic parts Free foods, Healthy Extras and Syns which make a circle to aid successful weight loss....
I have between 10 and 15 per day, but I have changed track this week after reading another thread and have started using the weekly total and taking syns off daily..
I do enjoy SW as there is so much choice and mostly everyday foods can be altered to suit....
My OH is doing it with me also and he has lost 1st 8lb. I am really proud of him...

Saturday 3rd Oct Extra Easy

Got up late for an appointment so had to skip breakfast.
Had a coffee and 1/2 scone about 11ish (4)
Went to the city centre and walked around a bit and took step daughter to the book shop!
Came home and just has ham, salad and cheese bread rolls....
Not planning came into play today. Should really have made lunch last night and made sure it was syn free....Never mind I still have my syns to cover the rolls and cheese....

We having chicken SW curry and rice for tea and possibly make some onion bhajis..So that will be all syn free I think.
I will have to talk to my consultant on Monday when I go to group, just to make sure I am following the Extra Easy plan correctly..

I weighed myself on my home scales (I know not a good idea) and I have lost a pound this week...If that stays off for Monday I'll be more than happy with that and that means I'll get my stone award!! woop woop!!
I will stay with the extra Easy plan then as it's easier for my and OH to follow.

Total syns 31
1/2 scone 4
1/2oz cheese 4
2 bread rolls 12
total used today 20
left for the week 11

11 syns for the rest of today and tomorrow...That should be ok...
I may have a pudding later which is SW and only 3 syns so 8 syns tomorrow should be ok...Not planing on having anything uncounted tomorrow...
