    Hello Everyone.
    I have just started following Slimming World from home. So far I have found it amazing on how much you can eat. But sometimes I do feel I may be eating too much. Just wondered if I could have some helpful feedback from other successful slimmers.

    So fat my typical daily menu has been:

    Breakfast: Porridge(HEB) and Milk (HEA) and a banana.
    Lunch: Salad with new chicken breast and wafer thin honey roast ham.
    Dinner: New potatoes, salmon and vegetables.
    Snacks: 2 Oranges and Apple.

    I drink at least 1.5 Litres of water a day too.

    Do I need to use my Syns or can they be saved?


    Hopefully I have done well enough to see a decent weight loss this week!!

    Thank you! I'm really trying!
    Usually when I first start I end up giving up, and it was hard on my 4th day! I just wanted to curl up and cry! But I have stuck to it and I'm determined this time! Hopefully 2011 is my year!!
    How have you been finding things?

    My only advice would be take your home weighing with a massive pinch of salt... I weighed myself a couple of times over the last week and was confident of a decent loss, and only lost 1lb... It can be disheartening, but I won't be beaten!! xx

    Keep up the good work and thanks for the advice! I don't like weighing myself as it is. I tend to go off how I feel and how comfortable I feel in my clothes. x

    You should only weigh yourself once a week. Also you need to have your syns. They are there for a reason - so that you don't feel deprived!

    Sunday 23rd January


    Breakast:
    2 slices of toast (HEB)
    Butter (2 Syns)
    Marmite
    Apple
    Milk in tea (HEA)


    Lunch:
    Roast Chicken
    Carrots
    Cabbage
    Cauliflower
    Roast Potatoes (done like SW chips.. Yum!)
    Gravy made with a stock cube and water.

    Dinner:
    Home Made Tomato Soup (See Below)
    Home made Meringues with Bananas and Low Fat Custard(4 Syns)


    Snacks:
    Hot Chocolate (2 Syns)
    6 x Liquorice Allsorts (6 Syns)


    In my tomato soup there was:
    2 x tins of tomatoes (one with garlic)
    1 x tin of baked beans
    2 x onions
    3 x carrots
    2 x peppers
    salt and pepper
    sprinkle of chilli powder
    300ml of stock.

    You could put anything in, i was just using what is left in my fridge. What with it being the end of the month the fridge is looking very empty. At least i will get a few meals out of the soup.

    I also made the meringues with splenda instead of sugar. 4tbsp of splenda to one egg white. They were nice, but i dont think i left them in the oven for long enough.

    So far so good!! :D
