    I've been sort of doing Slimming World since July and have lost 8lbs which is rubbish compared to alot of you others on here who are doing brilliantly! I only want to lose another 1 - 1 1/2 stone but it's soooo difficult! I don't do much (any) exercise which makes it worse but I thought I'd post my diary on here and see if there is anything I'm doing wrong food-wise so if anyone spots anything let me know please!!:) Here is Monday's menu:

    B: 1 x WW bread (1/2 HeB), Beans, Flora x light (1/2 syn)

    Snk: 1 x alpen light (1/2 HeB)

    L: Pasta, 5 x LC light triangles (HeA), Grapes

    D: LF Supernoodles, Quorn escalope (7 syns)

    Snk: 28g Mini Weetabix Choc (HeB), Milk (HeA), Banana Custard Mullerlight, Options (2 syns)

    I drink de-caf coffee 2 cups a day and the rest of the time is NAS squash with water usually 5/6 medium glasses

    Syns for day: 9.5

    Thanks Nikki! I used to just write it down in a book day by day but struggled to include red days with no planning as I'm not that keen on meat really, but if I try and plan ahead I manage to do some red days (if I stick to it haha!!). I find weekends the hardest so thought if I had to record what I eat for other's to see I might think twice about eating naughty things, hmm didn't exactly work still had a Chinese this weekend :eek:. Anyway thanks for your comment :) and good luck with SW!

    Mix 2 Max help please!

    Can someone help me please??:)
    I think I'm going to do Mix2Max next week as I struggle to lose weight just doing Green Days but I really don't like red days, I get sick of the taste of meat (!) halfway through my meals and then just go hungry! :( My snacks generally are synned or fruit/yoghurt which is free on both days anyway. So if anyone is reading this who knows about Mix2Max can you please tell me whether I've got it right in my head:

    You pick either red or green for each meal (3 meals) and stick to it for that meal.

    All snacks must be food that is free on red and green, or synned. Any syns must be taken at the highest syn amount for that item.

    2 HEBs/HEAs can be from either original or green lists.

    So does it matter if I have 2 green and 1 red meal or 2 red and 1 green? So if I had a red breakfast and the other 2 meals were green is that ok?

    Have I missed anything? Please help! Than-Q! :D

    Hi

    It looks as though you have it right,
    You can have 2 red meals and one green or 2 green and one red, its up to you, but say you have sausages you would have to count them as the higer syn value ie green syn value even though the meal was a red meal. I hope that makes sense.

    Saturday 27th September - Prob Green - not sure what will be having really - going to Manchester United (sorry if that's a swear word to some of you!) which includes a hot buffet type lunch so hoping there will be rice/potatoes of some kind then will be back late so no idea about evening meal!

    Ended up being Mix 2 Max day (ish!!)

    Breakfast: 2 x ww bread (HEB), baked beans, cheese (HEA)

    Lunch: Noodles, 3 Prawns (1 syn?), chilli sauce (2 syns?) to start. Main course had Roast Veg pasta bake, 2 x baby potatoes (1 syn oil), salmon (HEB) with small amount of white wine sauce (2 syns?). Dessert: medium sized choc chip cookie (8 syns?)

    Dinner: Pub meal - chicken, bacon, cheese (HEA), few chips (8 syns?)

    Snack: 2 x Cadbury Freddo (11 syns) - don't know why I ate these apart from they are chocolate!!!

    Estimated Total Syns: 33 (far too many! But had a fantastic day and the food was gorgeous! Must be real good tomorrow)
