I hate tax bills. DP is self employed and we had to pay them about £5000!!!
Lady lovely to see you...how are you?
Well it may be a small achievement but its WI today and I have stayed on plan even having a salad for lunch at McDonalds. I will probably have a naughty dinner but Wednesdays before I was a bit lah-di-dah about it all
I'd a £2,500 tax bill last month paid it, but this letter relates to when we were getting tax credits, we're no longer entitled to it so they can't take it back little by little. They want us to contact them for repayment.
I'd another good day: started with scanbran etc, lunch was potato and leek soup, Superfree fruits throughout day & sw chips, low syn sausages, beans & egg for dinner.
Taking on the 777 challenge this week. 7 days, 7 syns per day and 7 speed foods a day...anyone want to join in? Our consultant went through it last night and is meant to boost weight loss...worth a shot! (despite the other thread this still feels more like home )
Yes I tried the 777 a few months ago, it definitely helped my weight loss! I'm giving the scanbran a go this week, though I've not a lot left so may have to contact a consultant who lives nearby & buy some off her!
Can I start the 777 from Monday, I need to shop and get it all in, plus I need to read my book again as the only speed foods I can remember are strawberries and Turkey.
My week started so well, won appeal in work for job grade and was upgraded with back pay from October, then same day found out there are going to be works going on at my hotel in July, it was a dream holiday and now looks like it will have to be cancelled, OH being a shit about it, and on top of that I feel really fat.
If you have probs getting the scan bran Fair I can grab you some in group?
Great about the appeal Choc and crap about the holiday, OH and feeling fat. Moan away!
I'm finding the syns the hardest part of the 777 and think I went over yesterday but today is a new day! Even baked a lemon cake today with kids and didn't eat any B: Porridge with apple cinnamon and sweetner. coffee L: Salad and left over mushroom and ham rissotto. coffee D: Stirfry with chicken - sauce will be soy sauce and oyster. sauce. WW dessert yoghurt and maybe some sugar free jelly Syns:tbsp light salad cream(2), options x 2 (4) and 2 sugar free marshmallows in options (1)
I've always just thought a reasonable amount would count. EG: one apple is speed, a chicken fillet is a speed food, a handful of berres/strawberries... yes, that's what I'd say. TBH we never were given guidelines - the book says any food with an S or SS beside it!
I've made the lovely Chicken Kung Pao out of the Asia cook book, beautuiful and filling and so spicy & tasty!
DS opened an Easter egg and although I tasted it, I didn't enjoy it so had a bowl of fruit instead
Now to make it through the rest of the night when DH is on the beer & will be bringing out the Tayto soon!
I hope you survived the taytos...taytos are far too delicious!
That chicken dish sounds gorgeous
We've had our nicest day yet and have done 3 loads of washing(and got it dry!!) plus never ending washing up and cleaning.
B:Porridge with cinnamon,apple and sweetener. Coffee. L: Pasta with courgette, carrot and a home made tomato sauce D: No idea yet! Speed: Apple x 2, courgette, carrot, tomato, onion Syns: Some cheese on my pasta, an Options
they are wafers (top and bottom) filled with pink and white mallow which are quite carboard ee when eaten straight from the packet, BUT...placed in the microwave for 20 seconds and they turn into gooey gorgeousness hmmmmm cant wait for later now.
Huge test coming up. I am off out to Home Bargains, now bearing in mind every time i go there i buy a mountain of chocolate this is a huge test of willpower to ensure i dont. They have Bubble Bars 5 for £1 I think I will have to walk round with eyes closed until i get to the homeware section
Huff keep it up being in control is fabulous, you have shifted 3lbs up thread, just keep doing what you are doing because its working. I would like a 3lb loss this week but as i only got back on the horse yesterday i think thats asking a bit much for Thursday!!!
