Wow, didn’t expect this  after last weekend!  2.5lb off, got my half stone shiny sticker, and slimmer of the week!  Shocked isn’t the word!!  Fingers crossed for this week.

Saturday: Morning oats with loads of mango and melon for breakfast.  Fruit for lunch.  Fish (no batter )and chips with mushy peas for dinner.  14 syns for the chips!

Sunday: Breakfast cheesy scrambled eggs – cheese Healthy Extra A – on toast – Healthy Extra B.  Lunch was McDonalds grilled chicken and bacon salad with balsamic dressing (3 syns) A few bits of fruit today. Dinner was roast chicken and the trimmings.  I’ve also discovered that I actually quite like diet fuzzy drinks too…..which is a bonus…I get bored of water when I’m out! 20.5 syns today. 

Monday: Breakfast was Weetabix (Tesco version) – Weetabix Healthy Extra B, Milk Healthy extra A.  Loads of fruit today.  Chicken salad for lunch with a very nice Mullerlight After Dinner Mint yogurt. Had a Curly Wurly today – 6 syns, didn’t enjoy it. 😦  Dinner was homemade cottage pie….. 14 syns today.

Tuesday: Weetabix for breakfast – tried it with a little hot water to soak in first , then used my Healthy Extra milk allowance for the rest.  Lunch was a Ham salad with rice (supplied by the training place I was at) Dinner was Pork Chop with veg.  6 syns today.

Wednesday: Still on the Weetabix for breakfast.  Someone put sugar in my tea….it was ok, but, I’ve got used to no sugar. Loads of fruit. Lunch was a Slimming World Aromatic Chicken Noodles, was ok, noodles a bit stodgy, veg was a bit watery….won’t be having that again! Had nice 45 minute walk at lunchtime with a colleague. Dinner was BBQ – Syn free sasuages from the local butcher (always put a syn down for each of them, as can’t be sure they are completely syn free, and chicken (no skin). 3 syns today.   Grumpy MIL today, she’s only lost 0.5lb this week.

Thursday: Weetabix again for Breakfast. Lots of fruit. Sausage salad for lunch – left over sausages from last night. Had a big craving for chocolate…..3 syns later, a Snack a Jacks Choc Chip Rice Cake solved that!  Dinner was lasagne – unfortunately it wasn’t home made….18 syns for a portion!!! Lots of speed food today, no normal free foods though!  24.5 syns today…..better be extra good tomorrow!

Friday: Weetabix again for breakfast.  Loads of Fruit today again.  Sausage salad for lunch again (the last of the left over BBQ sausages from Wednesday). Dinner was Speedy chicken jambalaya with waffles, banana and toffee yogurt for dessert. 7.5 syns today. 

Not expecting to lose much this week, have eaten ok, but not fantastically well, and have used most of my syns…..which I usually try not to do. Bring on the weigh in…….

Week 2……

Well went for my weigh in…I lost 3.5lbs. Happy with that as first week, hopefully I’ll be able to do something similar Week 2!

Saturday: Overnight oats with Pinapple for breakfast. Was a little naughty had a little trip to the seaside and had fish chips and mushy peas….took the batter off the fish, so only the chips were syns. 14 syns today.

Sunday: Today started with a healthy fried breakfast…..the only syns were hash browns, oh and nothing was fried (of mine), scrambled eggs nuked in the microwave (the bf had fried eggs), bacon oven baked no sausages for me either. Sunday Roast for dinner with Slimming World Ice Cream and blueberries and Meringue for desert.  18.5 syns today…..not so good, but who can resist hash browns…I certainly can’t!

Monday: Good start – overnight oats with blueberries.  Lots of fruit…. Chicken salad for lunch with Mullerlight yogurt. Gammon and veg for dinner.  Had a SlimmingWorld Hi Fi bar- Double chocolate……heaven! 6.5 syns today.

Tuesday: Was dreading today a bit, as I’m on a course every Tuesday for the next few weeks, where they provide lunch…..all booked long before I started all this.  This morning started as usual, morning oats with blueberries (sat in the car at the course venue, I got there a little early!) Lunch was a couple of small sandwiches – 1 round of bread it equated to – with Tuna/ cucumber and Ham Salad. I resisted the cakes and had fruit. During lunch I found out they could do me salad, so I’ve asked for that over the next 4 weeks. Dinner is pasta with chopped tomatoes and a SlimmingWorld Hi Fi bar….salted caramel this time…mmmm……  Gym tonight too, short session, but it was better than nothing! 13 syns today.

Wednesday: Overnight oats for breakfast, I forgot the blueberries, so had mango with it instead. Lunch was pasta, chopped tomatoes and chicken.  Loads of fruit again today. Wednesdays I cook for the bf.  I asked him what he fancied, he said sausage, egg and chips, but as long as it was ok for me to eat bless him… was nice….syn free sausages for me, but otherwise I had the same as him……11.5 syns today.

Thursday: I remembered the blueberries for the overnight oats today.  Again lots of fruit.  Lunch was a sausage (last night left overs) salad with cold potatoes….it was lovely, and a SlimmingWorld Hi Fi bar… choc today….ooooo….heaven!! Dinner was fried pre cooked veg, with fried  egg. Gym tonight….did a little more tonight…  9.5 syns today.

Friday: Overnight oats for breakfast again….was a good girl, I did the work McDonalds breakfast run…..I got a black tea, no sugar, for me and resisted the hash browns, my McDonalds weakness!….. Loads of fruit again today. Not so good that it’s now 10.45 am and I have very little fruit left to eat. Salad for lunch. Dinner was SlimmingWorld Lasagne, was really nice. 8.5 syns today. 

Saturday is weigh in day…..wonder how I’ve done this week……

Slimming World

Week one……

So the start of this was a bit of a disaster……Saturday just didn’t happen, so I started on Sunday….

Saturday:  Initial weigh in….. my target loss is 4st 5.5lb. Food wise, due to my breakfast and lunch, I (we, the bf included in this) figured that I’d be better starting Sunday.  So we had a last evening blow out of Dominos Pizza….the last in a while, a slice is 9.5 syns….1 slice is never enough!!

Sunday: Used all todays syns and tomorrows and some of Tuesdays, finishing the pizza – not a great start.  But was good the rest of the day eating mainly free foods, except the gravy and Yorkshire pud with my Sunday roast!  I’ve even given up sugar my tea……that was the hardest bit!  31.5 syns today….it was that pizza!

Monday: Good start today – overnight oats – the Heathy Option extra – with blueberries, for breakfast.  I have loads of fruit to snack on and chicken salad, and yogurt for lunch. Sugarless tea….hmmm…….. Overall a good day……only 6 syns, from my evening meal.

Tuesday: Another good start – overnight oats – the Heathy Option extra – with blueberries, for breakfast.  I have lots of fruit again, chicken salad for lunch (different bits in the salad today).  Could have quite happily sat down and eaten loads of Hobnobs (work was stressful), but resisted…….  Better today with the sugarless tea! 7 syns for dinner…..that means I’ve evened until syns from Sunday!

Wednesday: Another good day, started the day with the overnight oats and blueberries. Lunch was pasta and chicken in chopped tomatoes. Loads of fruit again and 0% Greek style yogurt.  For dinner the bf decided he wanted a BBQ. So I had a bread roll, 3 syn free sausages and ketchup. And a Hi Fi light macaroon bar. 13.5 syns today. 

Thursday: Overnight oats again without the blueberries- I forgot them!!  Lunch was the same as yesterday. Dinner was pasta in chopped tomatoes with steak and green beans chopped up!  2 syns today!  Coping with sugarless tea better now. 

Friday: Overnight oats as normal today. Lunch was chicken salad. It was cinema night, so the weekly trip of fine dining that is McDonald’s….crispy chicken and bacon salad with balsamic vinegar dressing….all my syns were from this….11.5 today!

Weigh in day tomorrow…..


Slimming World

Just joined Slimming World……

After a while of thinking about it and a random discussion Friday night, Saturday morning I went and joined Slimming World.

My first goal is 1st 7lb weight loss with an overall goal of 4st 5.5lb loss at the moment! I think that will be plenty enough!

My reasoning behind going: Mainly my feet and the pain from the plantar fasciitis; made myself a beautiful pig skin leather jacket, that I have hardly worn, because it’s got too small; And there’s the dress that I wore when I went to the bf’s works Christmas dinner for the first time….it’s a jersey fabric, long sleeve white with black stripes around it, I loved the dress he did too, and I felt amazing in it at the time.

The bf is happy to go along with this, he wants to lose weight too, but doesn’t want to join the club.

My MIL is doing this diet too, so she will be a great help keeping me on track!

Going to be living on Fruit and salads – I’m not a great veg fan – as most of these are all classed as ‘Free foods’, can eat as much of them as you like.  There’s some stuff you can’t , but that’s where the ‘Syns’ come in- I’m allowed between 5 and 15 syns! Sugar is classed as syn….tea without sugar, I’m going to struggle with I think!

I’ll keep you updated weekly after my weigh-ins……
