Hurray a new thread grin

15 syns yesterday- oops.

Will be better today! Started with overnight oats so a good start.

FannyFanakapan Tue 30-Jun-15 10:10:08

morning all! Ive got a busy busy day ahead!

I have lost 3 stone, and although my clothes are baggy, the weight around my waist is not shifting. I still look like slightly smaller version of humpty dumpty. Menopause is a bitch.

Also, all the flab has been hiding some serious varicose veins. My legs look like the london underground in 3d. Ive a cracker that runs over the knee - no more short skirts or dresses for me. sad

Hello, do you mind if I join you?

A bit about me : I am a serious faffer; get easily sidetracked by "this diet is better" so never give anything a proper shot. I've been a member online for six months a little while. I love the idea of eating well but so very hung up on eating too much. I've lost inches through exercise but the weight is just.......still there. No surprise when I'd regard a bag of kettle chips as a square meal.

I go on holiday in less than four weeks and I so want to enjoy it and feel better about myself, even half a stone would make a huge difference although I'm secretly hoping for a bit more than that.

I'm 46 ( hell, it gets harder to shift), 5ft 6 ins and today I weighed 11:11.

So today I had a peach and coffee for breakfast - I'm not a huge breakfast person.

I made SW quiche for lunch, all free, with salad, balsamic vinegar and a large tsp of light mayo. Nectarine afterwards.

I've got chicken and salad for dinner tonight as I'm out early, so can probably call that my first day!

I'm just going to go and read through your last thread for some top tips Nd inspiration!

b: fish, eggs, tomato, toast x 1 (heb)
L: Large tuna salad with FF dressing. 2 lady finger biscuits (2s)
D: Pasta with Cauliflower sauce, bacon, sweetcorn, peas, red pepper. Grated cheddar on top (hex A). Mullerlight.

Milk in tea for another 2s.

That's it!!

Can i join

RavioliOnToast Wed 01-Jul-15 10:29:43

Oops blush posted too soon,

Do you mind if I join?

I'm on week 7 and have lost 6.5lbs so far so not doing all that brilliantly.

For breakfast I've had 2x weetabix and loads of strawberries.

Lunch I'll have a mugshot, or some pasta with fruit

Tea, I'm either going to have baked cannelloni or KFC chicken

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 10:56:36

Hello all and thank you Calzone for inviting me smile I have so many questions to ask. Firstly I see from comments that speed foods are a must with every meal. Why? and what do they do? For example:- why would a jacket potato and beans have to have a speed food with it.

Midori1999 Wed 01-Jul-15 10:59:45

Can I join in again please? I have been stalking the other thread but not posted.

I was 2st 1lb down at last weeks weigh in, weigh in again this afternoon. I'll be lucky not to get a gain this week, but fingers crossed. Am hopefully biking a holiday with a friend for mid august and would like a stone off by then if humanly possible.

Today is:

Brunch of 4 egg omelette with cheese and lots of onion (6 syns for cheese)

Dinner: boiled rice and a tin of asda smartprice chilli (I know, but it's nice in a bad way!) 1 syn, maybe with a tin of sweetcorn.

Fruit as snacks. Milk as a HEa and if I have my HEb it will be a hifi light bar or two.

Midori1999 Wed 01-Jul-15 11:02:17

Dogood, 1/3 speed foods is somwthing recommended with SW, but it's not absolutely essential, although it may mean you lose more slowly if you don't. It's just a method of portion control, as if you're filling up on low calorie fruit and veg, you're not filling up on higher calorie proteins and carbs.

I don't always eat 1/3 speed, but the more speed foods I eat, the more I do lose.

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 11:21:10

Thanks, because speed foods seem to be a must on the SW diet just wondered if there was some science behind it.

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 11:33:30

Also, I'm not that keen on salads but I love fruit. So for example if I have a potato with beans, could I then have some fruit instead or do I have to have both?

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 13:01:48

Arrrghh keep asking questions on the other thread confused So a typical day in my sw diet as I am still trying to get my head around, free, super free, speed and syns!!!!!! Could you kind folk tell me if the example menu below is sufficient and please tell me if I'm getting the hang of it hmm

B/F w/bix, milk (HA) apple

LUNCH 2 400g w/m bread, lean ham 2 slice, tom&cuc, splash of lighter than light mayo, , nectarine

DINNER jack pot, baked beans, 25g 30% less fat cheddar, muller strawberry with fresh strawberries,

EVENING Options Belgium choc, mullerlight yog with fresh strawberries.

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 13:02:53

ps Lunch 2 x 400g bread from HB

emwithme Wed 01-Jul-15 15:10:59

Ravioli that's a really great, sustainable, weight loss. If you lose 1 lb a week (which you've pretty much been doing) then over a year, that's 3 STONE 10 LBS

Has anyone tried the Iceland meatballs? We had an issue with the pork fillet I had bought earlier this week I mis-read the use-by date and it was off when I wanted to use it so had to bring the meals forward a day. DH is cooking tonight so I was thinking pasta and meatballs with the Iceland SW branded ones.

annielostit Wed 01-Jul-15 17:21:23

Dogood you've got 2 hex b - weetabix & bread.
Options are syns,approx 2? Cheese is approx 5 if its low fat,
Mayo is syns too
I would say even though you've fruit, there's not enough veg (speed foods) and your going to be hungry.

Can any one add to this??

annielostit Wed 01-Jul-15 18:11:59

I've just been through the previous thread and looking at it, I don't think I follow the plan and eat too little. Not enough speed & no fruit. I'm the first to tell ppl that
Can I join back on 13 July please. ?
I'm off on holiday tomorrow & will be 7lb heavier by then.
I promise myself I'll not eat pastries for breakfast but cock it up by day 3. I've packed my kit and will try my best to eat good but alcohol is on the list.x

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 18:27:04

annielostit, thanks for the advise and enjoy your holiday smile

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 18:51:11

Another question. I understand syns and how they are calculated but how many do I have a day??? Is it up to a max 15 or is it lowered depending on what weight you want to lose?

FannyFanakapan Wed 01-Jul-15 19:27:30

15 a day, but you can use more and then even it out over the week.

so you have 105 a week, and you can use up to 60 in any given day, but then you have to reduce down to 8 or less a day for the rest of the week.

dont go below 5 per day, because then you will feel deprived and be tempted to snack.

My day is looking like this:

B: Fish, boiled egg, tomato
L: Salad with 2tbs lighter than light mayo (1 syn)
Sn: 1 slice bread (hexB) with 1 tsp butter (2 syns)
D: Spag Bolognesse. 1 piece french bread (counting as 4)

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 19:59:13

I've seen a lot of people having a cooked breakfast, unfortunately I just can't stomach anything but cereal in the morning. So if I'm getting my head around it all for brekkie I should be able to have cereal, fruit and yoghurt?? hmm

IseeSwansea Wed 01-Jul-15 20:38:13

I had a really light day yesterday, just because I was busy as opposed to trying to be good.

Today has been better. I prepped an overnight oats last night with fat free Greek yoghurt and frozen raspberries.....oh my god - so delicious.

I had left over SW quiche for lunch with salad and a spoonful of ketchup (1)

Steak and quinoa salad with loads of chopped salad vegetables and feta (h/a). Yoghurt, garlic and lime dressing on the side.

10 syns on salted roasted almonds.

Sugar free squash, litres of water and a couple of pieces of fruit����

dogood Wed 01-Jul-15 20:50:03

Now forgive if me if I sound daft, but the oats that a lot of people of prepping with yoghurt I assume IT IS just oats and yoghurt overnight and no water???
