I'm finding it easy, am just making sure I make proper use of my Healthy Extra's to make my meals more exciting, mind you, I am only on day 4, only time will tell with me and diets. However saying that I did stick 13 weeks on Lighter Life, and I am enjoying SW much more than I did LL!
My all-singing, all-dancing weighing scales broke last night! They are out of warranty, and the button to turn them on is stuck fast. I can't afford to replace them right now, so I have no scales and have no idea if I am losing weight or not. I've never been without a pair of scales before and it's scary!!
Breakfast: 2 x Weetabix 250mls semi skimmed milk Banana (chopped up) 1 TBSP Golden Syrup (2.5 syns)

Weigh in today and I "only" lost 2lbs, which I was initially disappointed with, but out of the 5 who joined with me last week, 2 didn't turn up, 1 lost 3lbs, and 2 lost 2.5lbs, so I guess it's not really that bad. I'd have felt worse if the'd have had half stone losses!!
We had breakfast butties at work today. Normally I would have sausage and egg in a white bap, but I opted for scrambled eggs in a box
The meeting went really well today. There were lots of sandwiches, but there was also a huge fruit platter. I did have one tiny sandwich but couldn’t identify most of the fillings so opted to have some fruit. I discovered that a can of diet pepsi at around 10:30am, keeps hunger at bay, so that I wasn’t hungry during the meeting so didn’t binge on the buffet. Unfortunately there were biscuits on the table at the start and boredom drove me to have two – but that is a massive improvement and I wasn't too over my syns and would be under on a weekly count.
So - things to remember:
1. I didn’t gain weight. 2. I have enjoyed everything I have had to eat this week. 3. I have enjoyed the ‘security’ of knowing that if I get hungry I can have plenty of free food to choose from. 4. I have enjoyed not having to weigh and measure everything. 5. I feel a lot better in myself, no unpleasant toilet episodes, feelings of bloated-ness or heartburn. 6. I have not had any episodes of self-loathing because of uncontrollable bingeing this week. 7. No feelings of embarrassment because I’ve troffed all the families unhealthy snacks within a couple of days, and no suffering “knowing looks” from my husband for doing so.
One of my old friends who was a nursery nurse at youngest son's nursery (before he left to go to school) was there too, so it was lovely to see her, and she said she will definitely be there next week, so that is something for me to look forward to.
My car has broken down and it's not economically viable to repair it. I was planning on buying a new car next February-ish. I was devastated but now I am thinking of all that walking I will have to do and thinking "maybe every cloud has a silver lining" and all that?

Yesterday was a bit of a disaster. On my way to work at 5:50am my car broke down in the middle of the red light district!! Upon calling out a recovery truck they told me my timing belt had broken and as the car was an R reg it probably wasn't worth repairing as the engine would have been damaged.
I was a bit upset as I had been hoping to run it until April when a current loan would have been paid off, and normally when my routine changes or some sort of diaster befalls me, my eating normally goes off the rail - but it didn't yesterday. Yes, I did have plenty to eat and was stuffing my face all day but it was all free foods and as you can see I was way under syns! I'd even budgeted for another kit-kat but I actually FORGOT to eat it!!!!
I test drove a Citroen C1 yesterday afternoon but I didn't like it because it was silver!!! So I'm test driving a yellow Peugeot 107 this afternoon (and I do like the colour!!)
Breakfast: Didn't have a formal breakfast just snacked on raspberries, an apple, a satsuma, 2 plums and some red grapes
Lunch: Didn't have a lunch either, just had a mouthful of eldest son's sausage roll when we went to watch football (2.5 syns).
Dinner:Gobi Chana Curry (from recipe book containing: Cauliflowers, can of chick peas, spring onions, red pepper, green pepper, passata and VLF natural yoghurt) with 28g of cheddar cheese grated over the top.
Snacks:2 x Hi-Fi Bars, 2 x Mint Kit kats (10 syns), 1 x Marshmallow chocolate tea-cake (2 syns), 1 x TSP of Green & Blacks Hot Chocolate (1 syn) made with 250mls of semi skimmed milk.
Syns for day: 15.5
Did a bit more walking than normal as walked from the car to the footie stadium. I went and test drove the Yellow Peugeot 107 and loved it, so have put a deposit down on it and collect it some time this week I CANT WAIT!!!
