    So this is my first day on SW and thought I'd start this diary to keep me on the straight and narrow!

    Previously lost a lot of weight with VLCD's but after having my son last year i just couldn't get back into the swing of things and had no energy so going to try the slimming world approach and hope to lose 3 stone.

    Im unable to join class until next week so going it alone until then. I've been lurking on the SW forum for a while so i think i have a good enough grasp on the plan to be able to go solo for a week but if anyone is reading and spots a mistake then please do let me know :)

    So today is going to bd a Red Day and will look something like this -

    Breakfast: fiber plus bar (hexb1)

    Lunch: SW quiche made with eggs, ff cottage cheese, onion, red pepper and bacon with 42g low low cheese on top (hexa1)

    Dinner: Maggi paprika chicken (1.5 syns) with SW chips (skin on for hexb2) with free roasted veg.

    I will snack on fruit throughout the day and have a few more syns which i will update later...so does this look ok for a red day menu?

    So a few changes to my planned menu...Still a Red Day

    Breakfast - Fiber Plus Bar (HEB1)

    Lunch - SW Quiche made with eggs, ff cottage cheese, red pepper, onion and bacon. Side salad of lettuce and beetroot. Light mayo (1 syn)

    Dinner - Maggi Paprika Chicken (2.5 syns) veggie stir fry

    Snacks - Peach, Pineapple, Apricot.

    Fiber Plus Bar (HEXB2)

    Wasted 7 syns on half an avacado! Thought my 11 month old son might enjoy one for breakfast but he turned his nose up at it. Hating waste i decided i would eat half and then the little burger decided he did like it after all lol. Could sooo think of better things to spend 7 syns on :(

    Pink n White (2.5 syns)

    13 syns in total

    Was craving something sweet so just had some quark with white chocolate options (2 syns) spooned over a banana. That takes my total syns for today to 15 which is a little more than i had planned...damn that 1/2 avacado :( But still on track :)

    Just planning out my menu for tomorrow which will be an extra easy day as i'm staying with my OH and it will just be easier :)

    Breakfast - Syn Free Rice Pudding (HEXA for milk) Banana, apricot, peach

    Lunch - Batchelors Chinese Savory Rice with onion, green chilli, green pepper, spring onion and left over Maggi chicken (1.5 syns)

    Dinner - Think the OH is making Maggi chicken (I'm going to turn into this lol) so 1.5 syns. Boiled rice. Roasted tomato with garlic. Asda Mediterranean Veggies which are 7 syns but will be split between 3 so i will say 2 syns worth for me and he usually adds a Tblsp of Olive Oil to the Maggi's so i will use this as my HEXB.

    Should be doing Tracy Anderson Mat Method right now which just arrived this morning but i have tons to do before tomorrow and will be out and about all day so i may have to start this on Wednesday instead.

    Extra Easy day today...

    Breakfast- syn free rice pudding (HEA for milk) with chopped banana and apricot.

    Lunch- Chinese flavour rice, spring onion, green chilli, green pepper, onion and left over Maggi chicken.

    Snack- Wholemeal roll (HEB) Tsp extra light mayo (0.5 syn) slice of lean ham...didnt have any superfree with this but hoping it wont do too much damage as i had tons of veg with dinner (3 quarters superfree)

    Dinner- Maggi chicken (1.5 syns) loads of green beans and Mediterranean veggies (not the ones in oil but OH did add a bit of oil and a spoonful of reggae reggae sauce so guestimating 7 syns)

    So 9 syns today...may have an animal biscuit later for 2 syns.

    So far im loving SW. Hope i get a good result on the scales on Monday :)

    Today has been a Red Day and i feel like i've eaten loads...already had 15 syns :( so will need to be careful for the rest of the day!

    Breakfast - Fiber Plus bar (HEB1) Bacon, Cheese (1/2 HEA) Tomato Toastie (HEB2)

    Snack - Roast Chicken Fridge Raiders (2.5 syns - i thought they were free!)

    Lunch - Maggi Chicken (2.5 syns) Salad, 15ml Peri Peri Mayo (2.5 syns)

    Snack - Melon, Banana with Quark and Options (2 syns) Cup of Tea (other 1/2 HEA for milk) and a KitKat (5.5 syns)

    Dinner - Thinking of having Gammon Steak and Veggies.

    Hope i don't feel hungry later on since i've no syns left :( It's sooo hard to stick to 10 (although i know 15 is ok) I don't see how people can have trouble using theirs lol...give them to me!

    Will go for a nice bath and do my fake tan and paint my nails later to keep me occupied. Should really do some exercise too but i just dont seem to have the energy! My darling son decided 5am was a good time to get up at this morning! I did watch Tracy Andersons Mat Method but i think i'd get better results if i actually participated lmao x

    Well all my hard work and good intentions went out the window over the weekend when i went to stay with the OH. Friday started well, i'd only had 8.5 syns and then i had a tiny glass of wine....which turned into a bottle of wine and then some Morgans Spiced :( Saturday wasn't too bad. Did ok during the day, and then OH did a BBQ for dinner, had some creamy coleslaw and some pre-packed pasta so no idea of the syns :cry:

    Sunday i managed to pull it back on track with a green day including loads of fruit and veg.

    Weighed this morning and i have lost 2lbs. I know it could've been more as i was 3lbs down on Friday morning (had a sneaky peek) but i suppose 2lbs is better than nothing when i've been a big greedy wine slugger :(

    Anyway a new week awaits and i have warned OH not to even offer me any wine this weekend so i hope my losses for next week will be better!

    Today is a green day and so far so good -

    Breakfast - Had this quite late so i had a co-op pitta (HEB1) with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, onion and 42g Low Low cheese (HEA1) melted on top to make a lovely pitta pizza.

    Lunch - Syn free rice pudding with an Activia Vanilla yoghurt stirred through.

    Snacks - Satsuma and a slice of Bernard Matthews Turkey Breast (1 syn)

    Dinner - To be arranged. I have a "Woopsed" cabbage that needs using so i'm thinking of having this with some Quorn sausages and mash.

    Will update later...

    Helloooo, I've just found your thread/blog & wondered how you were doing? I'm only in my 2nd week & too am a greedy wine slugger (well, wine/vodka/tequila/cider slugger!) so I do get mad when I don't lose as much as I could as I know when it gets to Friday I have the breaking strain of a kitkat (yummm)!! Are you doing another thread or not doing one any more? Loved reading this, it brightened up my very tired & very hungover Saturday morning right up!! x
