    So, I have been dieting for the last 3 years now on and off. When i first started dieting, i was 14st 1lbs and in the overweight/obese catagory. I wasn't huge, but only because of my height.. I lost 2 st on Weightwatchers over 2 years then started Slimming world in Jan 2014 with my family.. Since then i have lost another half a stone and now at arounnd 11st 6/7 depending on the week. Losing the weight wasnt the issue for me, i was motivated and determined to lose it. It is the after part now, the maintaining which is my issue. I have lost the motivation and the desire to be dieting, the pizza and chocolate is just to tempting so because of this i am yo-yoing up and down between bingeing one week and dieting the next. I just want to be the same as it seems much easier.
    So hence the food diary, I thought, after reading other diaries, that the support and shame of naming all my foodly intakes would make me be better, then i can stop feeling guilty all the time and eat healthy!
    My weight in class is on a Saturday, but i'm starting my diary now as i want to get into the mind frame now and not tomorrow, as 'tomorrow never comes'.

    So, im going to stop going on and start my food..

    So todays food is:

    Breakfast - Grapes & possibly a grilled bacon sandwich (if i get hungry) which would be my HEB
    Lunch - Left over spaghetti and tomato sauce (chopped tomatoes, onion & mushroom) & pineapple
    Dinner - Stir fry: egg noodles, homemade sauce (garlic, ginger, chilli, little bit of light soy sauce) and chicken.
    Snacks - SW 'haribo' sweets (3syns), Grapes, 24 Mikado (12syns) = 15 SYNs for the day

    I'm going to the cinema tonight so the Mikado and 1/2 the sweets will be going with me to avoid the pic n mix stand there!

    Ok so i've tried the 'haribo' sweets. they aren't what I expected, they are very very sweet and sickly. Couldnt eat the entire lot in one day, only managed a 1/4 of them at work, so im going to split them up and have some each day :).

    Changes in food are:

    Breakfast - Grapes
    Lunch - Small bit of tomato, mushroom & onion spaghetti and a large salad
    Snack - Pineapple
    Dinner - Mushroom & Chicken stir fry with home made sauce (garlic, ginger, chilli, light soy sauce) and Egg noodles
    Snack - 1/4 of SW 'haribo' sweets (1syn), 28 mikado (14syn)

    Going to my full amount of syns today as im going to the cinema and my friends will be eating popcorn and pic a mix, so im going to sit there with my mikado and join in the foody fun aha!

    Hey up Jess, I'm poping by to subscribe.

    Well done on losing all your weight and becoming a target member, that must feel awesome! I look forward to reading your journey :)

    I love Mikados as well, they must be my favourite 'chocolate fix' at the moment. What are you going to watch at the cinema?
