its that long ago now i can barely remember, but it went something like this:
brekkie:nothing much, maybe cereal.
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!

Afternoon: Doughnut
Dinner: Huge dinner like Spag Bol or pork chops, jacket potato with butter, and cauliflower cheese, then 1/2 pkt biscuits

I was still fairly healthy but my problem was binging every few days i would have a massive dominos and mountains of choc, do miss these binges abit but not worth the weight gain
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
