    its that long ago now i can barely remember, but it went something like this:
    brekkie:nothing much, maybe cereal.
    snack:chocolate
    lunch:either 2 sandwiches stuffed with bacon, egg and sausage done the non sw way or maccy d's....not just one burger with my meal though, had to be 2 and a milkshake.
    tea:something homemade done the non sw way, spag bol or sheperds pie or something.
    then snacked on rubbish during the evening with a bottle of wine.
    i would have probably been a size 20 at least by now if i hadnt started sw.scary stuff.

    I didnt really eat that bad but i had whey too much milk and cereals, bread etc.

    Breakfast - cereal, milk

    Lunch - almost always an egg mayo sainsburys sandwich or cheese and tomato pasta. With quavers, diet coke.

    Dinner - chips, beans, quorn or pasta or jacket with cheese

    My problem before was also my dressings i would have loads of mayo, ketchup, honey etc.

    Thats why this plan works for me as it helps me control these without being restrictive

    I ate quite bad having takeaway most nights!

    Breakfast: sausage baguette

    Dinner: pasta and pesto

    Tea: Indian/Chinese/kebab

    We set up a new business and moved into a pub near takeaways and as I was busy and had no time to cook or shop we would always have Cafe breakfasts and takeaways for tea!

    Looking back now I can see how I put 3 stone on in a year!

    We have a new pub now closer to tesco and also aren't working as many hours so now I'm always cooking and we don't even like takeaways anymore.....although I have a thing for subway! Yum

    pre SW food diary:

    A typical day would look something like this:

    Breakfast: Brown toast with margarine and jam/chocolate spread

    Snack: chocolate bar/cookie

    Lunch: jacket potato/chips/sandwiches

    dinner: takeaway chinese (chicken balls, chips chow mein) I would eat half then save the rest for breakfast/lunch the next day

    snacks: chocolate cake/crisps etc. I would usually eat until I felt sick

    Drinks: tea with 2 sugars/juice/diet drink

    When I look at that its easy to see how I have put on so much weight over the years! Never really thought about it before, its quite motivating! I feel so in control now with food :)

    Something like this

    Breakfast: bacon butty (how I miss you...)

    Lunch: Corned beef & onion sandwich on white roll, bag of crisps

    Tea: Subway sandwich / takeaway / whatever was in the freezer (I didn't have a proper cooker). Often on the way home I'd buy one of those big bars of choc they do for £1 in WHSmith etc, thinking I'd put it in the fridge and break it up, then basically mainline the entire thing before tea, leaving no room for it. Classy

    Drinks: Full sugar fizzy pop / alcohol

    I eat differently now, but it's as much SW as moving in with my boyf at the same time, as he's veggie and eats well. I do crave bacon, so am going to have some this week, and I crave chocolate sometimes too. I have managed to keep a block of choc in the fridge and only have the odd bit over the last week though, which I'm insanely proud of given my history!

    A typical Pre-Slimming World day for me would consist of the following:

    Breakfast: None
    Snack: Scone with Butter/Crisps/Chocolate
    Lunch: Chicken & Sweetcorn Mayonnaise with Lettuce, Onion, and Tomato in a Tortilla Wrap, Crisps, full fat Coke, Cake/Chocolate
    Snack: Greggs' Pasty, full fat Coke
    Dinner: Chicken Burger in a White Roll with Lettuce, Onion, Tomato and Mayonnaise, with Lattice Fries and more Mayonnaise, Chocolate biscuits/cakes.



    Now, thanks to Slimming World I have a more healthy, fulfilling diet. A typical example of my day now consists of:

    Breakfast: Fat Free Yogurt, Pineapple, HiFi Light Bar
    Snacks: Banana, Apple
    Lunch: Jacket Potato with Beans and Cheese, Salad, HiFi Light Bar
    Snack: FF Yogurt
    Dinner: Shepherds Pie with a huge pile of Broccoli, Peas, Carrots and Sweetcorn.

    Thank you Slimming World! :) xx

    breakfast- either porridge(loads of syrup on) or 2 pieces of thick hovis bread with either marmite, jam or cheese.
    Lunch- pasta salad(loads of Mayo) chick salad sandwich(again with loads of Mayo) soup.fruit
    Dinner- pasta, rice with meat veg or salad, cheese on toast, jacket pots
    Snacks- crisps, bread and bits of cheese, yoghurt.

    On a whole it wasn't too bad. I didn't eat fried food and rarely had takeaways and the only things I've cut out is bread cheese and Mayo which are the 3 things I miss the most!! But I've lost 17lbs by doing that
