Aw well done kissmygirls, it feels so worthwhile when that BMI isnt scarey anymore - i not technically due to weigh till friday either but did yesterday and have gained a toot so am going to be uber good till friday now, i feel a bit ropey to be honest and a bit gutted will miss my my exersise tonight as a result. Dd not so rosey either so half expect a school call though she is adamant shes just tired.

Hello! Can I join please? I'm due to weigh in this morning. I've been on the plan since January and have lost 10lbs. Very slow going.

Pokes head around door and waves nervously grin ......

Hello, can I join you?

I've just registered online for SW (great discount code AVIVA2013).

Day 3 - I'm looking or dinner inspiration.

I have a great SW pastry-less quiche recipe that I can offer you all (by way of friendship and support) - which is FREE grin and freezes well.

My first weigh in is on Saturday.

BadRoly Tue 19-Mar-13 12:35:30

Hello all the new faces grin

Paxdora, having just found 6 eggs in our nest box, I would like the quiche recipe please grin

BadRoly Tue 19-Mar-13 12:38:52

I must remember to finish my post before hitting the post button...

I am on a fridge empty/eat up today so have had leftover Chinese takeaway for lunch - boiled rice, 1/4 'box' each of chicken chow mein and beef in black bean sauce. I am counting it as 10 syns but would be shocked if it really was wink

For tea I am doing proper carbonara for the kids (which I don't like) and I'm having leftover SW chilli with a jacket.

I had banana for breakfast so will use hifi bars and babybel when the munchies hit...

Paxdora Tue 19-Mar-13 12:42:58

SW pastry free quiche.


4 slices smoked bacon (fat cut off) - fried in fry light, drain excess water

2 leeks sliced
1 medium sweet potato diced into bite sized chunks
Fried in fry light until soft (apps 10 mins)

Whisk 4 eggs with 200g quark AND 200g light cottage cheese
Add salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together

Spray fry light into flan dish and pour in mixture of all ingredients)

Grate cheese from allowance on top

Bake at 180 for about 20-25 mins (sometimes a little longer depending on oven but you will know by sight when it's cooked)

Serve with new pots and salad

Cut eft overs into chunks and freeze for another day.

Sometimes I add roasted peppers too (arranged in an arty fashion on top of the mixture)

The quiche rises quite high and then deflates when out of the oven.

KissMyGrits Tue 19-Mar-13 12:43:46

noyou I hope your daughter is ok.

Hi Paxdora my favourie SW teas are cottage pie or chicken tikka massala. Yum!

Paxdora Tue 19-Mar-13 12:45:24

Paxdora Tue 19-Mar-13 13:12:35

Okay - here's my clearing out the fridge lunch for today

Butternut squash soup - free (leeks, carrots, butternut squash, stock cube, water, salt, pepper, cumin)

Left over home made coronation chicken - chicken is free, mayo light 2syns), a teaspoon of mango chutney (1.5 syns), curry powder

tigerdriverII Tue 19-Mar-13 13:35:30

Ok, pre WI tonight, I have had:

B: muller light, blue berries, hi if bar (HEb)

L: baked beans, topped with cheese (hea). Muller light, banana, Sharon fruit, mandarin

Zippo syns so far.... Dinner is planned to be smoked salmon pasta, with whipped up yog instead of sour cream (sounds disgusting, tastes yum) with salad.

Fingers crossed for a loss (any loss!) tonight....

DoubleIndemnity Tue 19-Mar-13 14:14:40

Hello everyone, lovely to meet you all and thanks for the warm welcome! Feeling heartened to hear from ladies in my age group, knowing I'm not the only one who finds weight loss slow now.
I used the Aviva code too - it's valid till 31/3 I think.
Quite impressed by SW website and its various tools.
Having a good day!
Paxdora thanks for the recipes and ideas. Struggling a bit to get my ancient head round Extra Easy so sticking to what I know, and what has worked in the past, i.e. Green plan.
Best wishes to you all especially those with WI today (mine will be Saturday mornings) xx

iklboo Tue 19-Mar-13 15:44:42

Luscious lemon hi-Fi bar for breakfast (Healthy B)

I'm another newbie this time

I did it about 5 years ago and lost 2 stone and have since put that on plus a bit more for luck.

I have been shopping and bought a mountain of fruit, done my meal plan for the week - all green days.

'plan plan plan - know what you are going to the kitchen for' is my motto, no rummaging allowed



Turkey Shepherds pie


Salmon Fishcakes with jacket and salad


Egg beans, mushrooms and a few sw chips


I'm going out but will be sensible and at least will not have a pudding




Roast chicken


Left over roast chicken


Chicken, cheese and onion pie.

KissMyGrits Tue 19-Mar-13 16:36:09

tigerdriverII Tue 19-Mar-13 18:33:52

Oh blondes don't worry too much. Sometimes you can't stick to plan for quite understandable reasons, if the rest of the week has been/is going to be ok, then you'll be fine.

Off for my WI in a few minutes. eeek.
