Week 1 - DONE!

Afternoon All,

Just thought I'd post a quick update to share some thoughts from my first week.

Yep - this time last week I was stressing about how on earth this SW 'thing' would work! Unfortunatly I am unable to go to meetings over the next 3 months so I've joined SW online.

On the negative side I do think the SW online deal is a little 'pants'. You can't use Food Diaries to plan future days - just the current day, they don't have an online forum, you can't save recipies in to your Food Diary and the recipie search is very clumsy (i.e. some days you just want to review a whole list and get inspired!).

However - the overall plan is very good! I've been amazed at the flexibility! I've been making good use of the magazine and other recipie sources and have eaten some WONDERFUL things this past week. Made the prawn cakes from last magazine last night - YUM! And actually - when I had to eat out one night, being on an 'orange' day made it really easy. Melon for starter (although I did dribble over my OH's breaded mushrooms!) and then a steak.

So hopefully - when I step on the scales when I get home from work, they will breath a teeny tiny sigh of relieve and reflect a little loss! FINGERS CROSSED.

Am also SO PLEASED to have found this site. This forum gives SO much support and SO much information! And the recipie forum is EXCELLENT! If I have lost anything this evening, I am going to celebrate by making that gooey chocolate cake that is very low in Syns! Been dreaming of that all week!

So THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your support and advice during the first week! And, I apologise in advance for the many questions over the coming months! :D

This time I will do this!!

Hope you didnt literally dribble on his mushrooms :D

This forum is great, so much better I think, than the offcial site for support!

Well done on your first week, its great when a plan like this just clicks for you x I remember the thrill of my first week :)
Yeah - you sound like you have totally got it which is great! I will look out for your post filling us in on your loss as I am sure you will have a good one :)

Good luck!!

Hi there and well done for getting through the first week. Wasnt hard really was it??

The food diary section on the SW website is my biggest gripe. I would like to plan for the following day too and I know there are people on here that stick to meal plans for the week!
I must admit that I now use the SW website for just syn values and finding out if something is a HE.
I dont bother keeping a diary on there, just on here in the food diary forum.

Keep it up!

Well done on getting through your first week - i found taking the plunge and doing a whole week (whilst thinking that i can't possibly lose anything when i'm eating so much) was really hard.
I'm on the body optimise site too - find it really difficult to get to meetings around the kids.
