Vicki's road to skinnydom


Full Member
I all,
Well I started SW on the 31st Jan 2011 so nearly a year and 2 stone, 4 lb lighter (well 2 stone 2 lb as still got 2 lb of Xmas weight left to shift) so I've decided that instead of writing down what I eat on random post-it notes, it's time to go digital. :)
I only do red and green and this is what I find works best for me (but 90% of my days are green)

So here goes:

B: banana and custard muller and a mint hi fi

Lunch: an own brand sainsburys rice (same as a batchelors) pepper which was vile! And another muller

Tea: home made butternut squash soup with a bread roll (not a wholemeal one but shhhh)

The soup was lovely and my first ever soup attempt (apart from a supper speedy one) so I was rather chuffed so I'll be having it again tomorrow.

Well thanks for listening to my ramblings and I'll be checking in again tomorrow :)

Day 2 of my diary to getting skinny!
Going away in march with a group of friends and I'll have to wear a swim suit if I wanna get in the pool so need that flat stomach by then.

Breakfast: banana and custard miller and 2 double choc alpens (HEX B)

Lunch; sainsburys Moroccan couscous - 1 syn

Snack: boots shapers onion rings - 3 Syns (best crisps ever 57 calories a bag!)

Dinner: home made butternut squash soup again with a Asia pitta - about 6 Syns for the pitta I think???

Snack : 6 rivita crisp breads (HEX B) and some phili light (HEX A)

Full now but more Syns than I normally have in a day, like to save for the weekends drinking :) so need to be better tomorrow

Green day

It's felt like a lonnnggggg day today but think I've not been too bad.

Breakfast: banana and custard muller and 2 alpen lights (HEXB)

Lunch: BIG bowl of pasta with a tin of tuna mixed in (HEXB), and 2 heaped dessert spoons of lighter than light mayo (1/2 syn per level tablespoon so I'm gonna guess at about 3 Syns, just to be on the safe side.

Snack - jelly - 1/2 syn, and 1 jelly baby (don't know the Syns but gonna guess at 1 each)

Milk in coffee HEXA

Total so far - 4 and 1/2 and half Syns at a guess
1 x HEA
2 x HEB

Not sure what's for tea yet???? Poss a stir fry but ironing to do before that.
Might also have a crack at these scones I keep hearing about
