    SLIMMING WORLD. HAHAHAHA
    Hello people,

    So today is my 3rd day on the slimming world diet. I would like to lose over 100lbs of fat, i’m going to take it day by day and put in as much effort as I can.

    I am also walking 30 minutes or more every day as I usually sit in a chair working all day.

    The last 2 years of my life has been a complete mess with me losing my job, finding a new one, losing that job, finally working for myself, losing my gf, not being able to pay my mortgage so on and so on. I know I only have myself to blame with all my weight gain but I am now 100% focused on this diet and taking it day by day.

    A few months ago I had attempted to do a custom diet that consisted of:
    50% Protiens
    30% Fats
    20% Carbs
    The diet was working fine but finding recipes to fit into those percentages took up to much time and I finally gave up. With slimming world I have an online membership and have ordered all of the recipe books from there site.

    I have been inspired by a lot of people on this forum and if i can somehow manage to lose any weight with the slimming world diet I hope someone will be inspired by me and read my daily food and exersize logs.

    Yesterday my diet was:

    Breakfast
    2 Weetabix (HEB)
    Alpen (HEB)
    250ml Milk (HEA)

    Lunch
    Smash Pizza base
    Quorn Mince
    Low Fat Cheese (HEA)
    Tomato puree, mushroom, onion, sweetcorn

    Dinner
    Fish and chips (8 syns)

    Snack
    Various fruit topped with muller light, a couple of apples, bananas, another muller light.

    Snack 2
    plate of noodles

    Yesterday was kind of crazy as I couldn't stop eating, but not to worry as today seems to be going well.

    Hi Tim, Well done on getting back to it! Not easy when you have had such a lot going on in the last few months.

    Very impressed with you being a web ..something or other!?! Sorry, forgot what it was but You know what I mean....lol!

    Don't forget that we all have those days when blips occur.. some bigger than others, but that's how it goes. Better to just get back to it a.s.a.p.

    Wishing you all the very best with your journey...Take care ... :)

    Hi tim and welcome to the forum !!!!! It sounds like you gave really been through the mill lately but it sounds like your coming through the other side now . Having recently decided to go back on Sw I feel confident that this will be the plan for you and you certainly won't be hungry on it !!! Don't worry to much if you have a bad day it happens but it's all about how you react to it !!!!!!!!!! The walking will definately help and I can relate to the desk job thing . Wanna wish you lots of luck with the diet , will watch your progress ! Ken

    Today has been another great day so far, I’ve eaten loads again and my stomach feels so full and I still can’t see how i’ll be losing weight after this food.

    Today was the green day of slimming world which means no meats unless its part of the syns. I think it’s natural for me to eat meat everyday and when it’s not available it’s a bit hard to find recipes to cook not just for myself but for my family. I have replaced meats with quorn which hasn’t been to bad and tastes kind of similar to the real thing.

    Breakfast
    2 X Weetabix (HEB)
    150g Milk for breakfast + 100g milk for coffee during the day (HEA)
    Muller light yoghurt (1 Syn)
    Apple

    Lunch
    Batchelors fat free supernoodles with added sweetcorn
    2 X Wholemeal Toast (HEB)
    2 X Quorn Sausages (2 Syns)
    Tbls of Ketchup (2 Syns)

    Dinner
    Spaghetti bolognaise with quorn mince
    Cheese (HEA)

    Snack
    Muller Light (1 Syn)
    Walkers Baked Crisps (5 Syns)

    I was full of energy this morning and raised the treadmill to 3% incline at 4mph. I was walking tall and strong and could feel that i had a bit more go in me but i did not push it as my knees are not doing great with all my weight and I tend to get shin splints when working my legs to hard.

    I’m still waiting for the starter pack and all of the recipe books that I ordered from slimming world online, hope they come tomorrow.

    This is now my forth day strong on this diet and I can really see myself sticking to it, I guess if it doesn’t show on the scales this Friday i’ll be seriously upset and probably give up, it's all on the scales really. I have just eaten so much food on this diet, I just don’t know if i’m doing it correctly or not.
