Hi (coming out of semi lurkerdom to ask for support!)
I'm currently around 10st, and a size 10 (I'm around 5'2ish tall).
Ideally, by the beginning of December (or maybe Xmas?) I'd like to be in a size 8 part dress and losing some of my chubby tummy.
I've not really got time for the groups - so am going it alone with the books.
I'm hearing conflicting things about meals being 1/3 superfree foods - is this a must? (friend who does groups says not..?)
Yesterday I ate:
B: 2x wholemeal toast (Healthy Extra), scraping of butter (2 syns). Cup of tea with 1x teaspoon of sugar (1 Syn) L: Potato & Leek Soup #(home made by chefs at work), 1/2 a large wholemeal finger roll (3 syns?) D: Lean steak, Less than 3% fat chunky oven chips (1kg =10 syns), poached egg and baked beans - (2 syns for chips?) Snacks: 2x apples, 2x bananas, 1x fruit tea, 1x tea with sweet & low sachet, 2 small choc bics (oops! 6 syns?)
I make that a total of 14 syns which is still in the recommended 10-15 syns allowance (must drop the chocolate!!)
Today I've so far eaten:
B: 2x wholemeal toast, butter and baked beans (HE and 2 syns). Cup of tea with sweet & low (free?)
Lunch is planned: Jacket potato, salad, tuna mayo (premade by work - 2 syns?)
No idea about Dinner but will snack on fruit throughout the day.
The 1/3 superfree isn't essential, but it will help it come off quicker if you get to a point where you plateau a bit.
The slimming world chips, I don't parboil, life's too short for parboiling, lol...I just cut a potato into wedges, spray with fry light and cook them like that, it works fine.
I think it's great if you cook from scratch a lot anyway, things like bolognaise are dead easy to make for free...it'd be harder with convenience foods, though there are a few rubbishy snacky things that are free - I love that if you get to the end of the day and you're hungry you can just have low fat super noodles and they're free, lol.
