#1
Well my eating habits have gone down hill and I find myself eating more and more crap. So in a bid to make my skin more healthy and get my digestive system back in sync I am going to eat more healthy, including alot more water, more veg/salad/fruit (atleast 5 a day), switching to decaf tea and not succumb to the temptations present at work such as huge scones, puddings, double cream, cakes and chips etc- man I hate working where I do! My reward for each week of sticking to my plan, is a new coloured pen to write in my food diary. I know it sounds like a weird reward but I love smelly pens lol.

Today:



Milk Allowance for day:
  • Pint of Skimmed milk (3)-I know ww point it at 2 but I want to be accurate.
Breakfast:
  • 25g Bran Flakes (1)
  • 85g Strawberries (0.5)

Sautéed potatos
  • peel a potato (1pt per 100g raw weight).
  • cut into thick slices then cut them in half.
  • par boil them for 3 minutes.
  • spray a pan with fry light and fry them until golden,adding salt and pepper whilst in the pan.
I sometimes add some thinly sliced red peppers whilst they're frying in the pan too and some garlic paste.

Thats not a lot of points hon! You sure you are eating enough?
That's not all i'll eat, i'll eat more I just don't know what yet. I feel the need to plan the main parts of the day or I'll binge because I haven't planned.

Hi, maybe a typo but 1pt skimmed milk is only 2pts, you have another pt to use! x
yeah I know weight watchers capped the points on skimmed milk at 2 points but coz I have a very limited amount of time before my holiday now so i'm calculating it at 3 points from the nutritional information just so I know i'm not going over my points at all.Thanks for the heads up though :).

Totally lost track of time due to work so i'm not going to fill in my diary for the past two days as i can't remember what i had! lol

Today:


Milk allowance:
  • Pint of skimmed milk (3)
Breakfast:
  • 25g branflakes (1)
Lunch:
  • Porridge (2)

  • Salad (0)

Cheers I dont mind eating my points because i'm doing a "earning my treats" type personal challenge where if I want something like a chocolate bar I first have to burn the calories of that treat on the treadmill.It means I get what I want and tone at the same time and eat better at the same time, win win win, except the exhaustion factor from running lol.

My god women how do you survive on that? Well done to you but maybe you are having trouble sticking to it as you say as theres very little food?

Can I just ask how fast do you go on the treadmill?

Are you not hungry as you have little to eat and exercise loads?

ohh no I am sticking to it 100% just havent written it on here and I dont keep a paper diary so can never remember what i've had lol it's the dairy part i'm bad at not the actual diet part lol

I go about 6.5-7km p/hr on the treadmill.

I'm not really hungry as I have now learned when i'm actually hungry where as before I used to eat for eating sakes, and I was talking to a dietician ( whos a family inlaw) and she said that the "naturally thin" people only eat when hungry and eat what they want in moderation and if I can get into that mind set then im golden.Well i've got the not eating when not hungry part down and I intend to have what I want in moderation when I get to the weight I want :)

Ah knew there would be a reason :D
I this time actually have started to listen to my body and not my emotions on food and this is why I have under my points most week,this is all new to me as over the last 22 years of yoyoing I have emotional ate and now I feel I am learning not too.
So how many points do you have under weekly?

I have had a couple of weeks like last where things with Oh have been bad and instead of using food to feel better I just thought Im not hungry so why eat and got on the treadmill...........

The treadmill well done,Im a slow one on it but I am increasing my speed weekly and I hope I can do what you do this time next year
Hope your ok xx

I dont really know how many i'm under each week I dont really tally it up to be honest. I don't intend to be under my points (unless i've binged one day) it just happens some times. Especially if im working, i'm running around so much that I dont really have time to think let alone get hunger pangs! lol Getting on the treadmill instead of eating, now that's strength, I still have to make myself go running because I find it incredibly boring, but with my holiday in six weeks i need to not binge now. I'm going to have to adjust my above diary because I have been called into work, AGAIN! :( You're doing really well. Was wondering if you want to be team leader in may? XXX
