    Hi everyone! :wavey: Well here I go again…..I’ve had food diaries on this site before and have switched between SW and WW a few times! The last time I was on WW was this time last year when I was trying to lose a few more lbs in time for my wedding and honeymoon! I managed to get down to 10st and I felt ok at that weight. Then came the wedding :love047:, fantastic all inc. honeymoon in the Maldives :candledinner:(absolute paradise!) and then Xmas and I managed to put 10lbs back on! So all year I have been messing around doing a couple of weeks of WW then a couple of months of SW and even tried Slimfast for 3 weeks and I’m still the same weight as I was after Xmas haha! Anyway I’ve decided enough is enough and I’m turning back to WW which is the only diet that seems to work long term for me (I lost 3 stone on it about 7 years ago, most of it stayed off too!). I started back last Saturday when I weighed in at 10st 10lbs and have managed to stick to it, even over the weekend I was good which is usually when I go off the rails! :break_diet:I always have a Friday night treat although I am trying to cut the portion size of that to limit the damage. I would like to lose the 10lbs I have put back on. I am not a fan of exercise but am trying to keep myself more active at home rather than just sitting on the sofa all night watching the soaps lol! I will try to update daily – any comments or suggestions are very welcome, I have found this site very helpful in the past……oh I'm on 19 points a day (ish!), will weigh in on a Friday morning and am not attending classes......Wish me luck...;)

    WI tomorrow morning! Looking forward to it actually coz I do feel like my trousers are looser. I have never been someone who has big losses each week and I guess I'm within my 'healthy weight range' anyway so losing does get harder, but fingers crossed, I would love to have lost 2lbs!! Have had 5 100% days, 6 including today barring any self sabotage attempts later haha! On a Friday I will be careful all day and only use half my points up til Dinner, but will have a treat at night without counting points (prob Chinese mmm) so Friday will never be 100% on plan.

    Breakfast = 3
    30g Bran Flakes (1.5)
    125ml ss milk (1)
    50g Strawbs/50g Rasps (0.5)

    Snacks = 2.5

    Lunch = 3.5
    3/4 tin tuna (1.5)
    WW wm pitta (1.5)
    Salad (0)
    Nectarine (0.5)

    Snack = 1
    Mini Twister ice lolly

    Dinner = 6
    Chinese pork (3)
    1/2 pack Uncle Ben Rice (3)
    Roasted red pepper/babycorn/courgette (0)

    Snack = 2.5

    Hi there :) thanks for reading and commenting! I've done well this week, lost 3lbs which is a really good loss for me in one week! Really pleased with myself today :D

    The bread bun was just on the small side ha so I took 1/2 a point off! :eek: so it was a guestimate I have to admit to that.

    The Cheerios Clusters are really nice. Basically just Cheerios, with some small cluster type things mixed in that taste vaguely vanillary (not sure that's even a word :eek:). After being on SW, it's nice to be able to eat what I call 'kiddy cereal' sometimes rather than just bran/wheat type cereals. Anyway thanks again, and I'd better go and update my diary etc....here's to another good week!!

    By the way, well done on your fantastic losses!! You're doing so well you must be so proud of yourself!!

    Very well done on your 3lb loss - it's such a motivator to have a good loss isn't it. Your meals look really good - I love looking at what other people eat, it's so easy to get stuck into a rut of eating the same things so it's great to get some new ideas.

    Keep up your good work and good luck for the next week.

    Wednesday 25th August
    Another good day yesterday, although I must try to use my points on something other than chocolate for snacks! But I have an excuse this week - hormones!! And I'm so so busy at work and at home this week is flying by, just hoping I can keep track of my points and keep trying to plan food properly or that's where it will all fall apart! I don't 'feel' like I have lost anything so far this week but I guess again that could be down to hormones so I'll be happy with 1lb loss this week if it happens, fingers crossed!

    2 x Weetabix (1.5)
    125ml ss milk (1)
    1 small banana (1)

    Friday 27th August 2010 2nd WI - lost 2lbs!! :D
    Feeling really happy at losing 2lbs this week, especially as it's totm! This weekend will be tough (diet wise, but great otherwise :)) as got a wedding do tonight and a wedding all day tomorrow. I'm planning on sticking to points today, having a day off plan tomorrow - I'll eat a sensible breakfast, then the wedding meal and will just choose as sensibly as I can at the buffet at night. Straight back on it on Sunday :) Should be ok as normally I'd have a take away at the weekend anyway. Depending how bad I am tomorrow I can always drop a point a day next week to make up for it if I have to. Here's to another good week, and hopefully another loss :)

    Breakfast = 3
    30g bran flakes (1.5)
    125ml ss milk (1)
    100g strawbs (0.5)

    Lunch = 6
    Chicken pasta mugshot (3)

    Mandarin Mullerlight (1.5)
    Coco Rocks Cereal Bar (1.5)

    Dinner = 5
    Chicken (2)
    McCain wedges (3)


    Snack = 3
    4 x Malibu & diet cokes at wedding do

    Total points used = 17

    What a fantastic weekend!!:D Not the best foodwise but I tried to be careful where I could!

    Saturday had sensible breakfast, then 3 course meal at around 4pm which was soup, then like a sunday roast and a small cake type pudding. Around 10pm had two small triangular sandwiches, half a very mini quiche and a very small square choc brownie. No idea of points at all but didn't eat much in terms of volume today so hoping not too bad!!

    Sunday 29th August
    Meant to be back on plan, was until around 7pm when I had been out all day and couldn't be bothered to cook and had a chinese although to be fair I only ate half as much as normal because for some reason I got full really quickly!

    Breakfast = 3.5
    40g honey nut cornflakes (2.5)
    125ml ss milk (1)

    Lunch = 6
    WW chicken fahita wraps (4.5)
    Coco Rocks cereal bar (1.5)

    Dinner = ??
    1/4 portion chips (3?)
    1/3 portion beef satay (2?)
    1/3 portion bali chicken (2?)
    1/3 portion fried rice (3?)

    Small bag revels (3.5)

    Right, back on plan today! Haven't planned my food though so will have to be careful! Especially having had an 'off plan' weekend more or less! Will try to stick to 18 points a day til WI this week due to the weekend I've had! And I may be facing a 'sts' this week due to having lost so much (for me) in my first 2 weeks then having an 'off' weekend! I'll be happy with that though as long as I don't gain!!

    Breakfast = 3.5
    30g Honey Nut Cornflakes (2.5)
    125ml ss milk (1)

    Snack = 2.5
    Biscuit (1.5)
    Alpen Light (1)

    Lunch = 4.5
    4 x rice cakes (2)
    1/2 tub cottage cheese (2)
    WW toffee yoghurt (0.5)

    Snack = 2.5
    Kit Kat

    Dinner = 5
    Tesco LC thai red curry meal

    Snack = 2
    Special K High Fibre bar dark chocolate (love these!)

    Total points used = 20 oops 1 point over!
