Ahh thats better grin

TitsalinaBumsquash Sun 17-May-09 19:55:08

So im making a meal plan.

Inspire me.

I tend to alternate between Green and Red each day. Red today so.


I don't want to fill up on fruit when im at a loss of what to cook and end up with a stomach ache and farts again. grin

I have some nice pork steaks, anyone know any free marinades i could do them in?

ProfYaffle Sun 17-May-09 19:57:53

Good idea, not so much scrolling up and down.

How's everyone finding the sparkly place by the way? I haven't set up a food diary or weigh in thread, don't like the idea of someone 'approving' what I'm eating but I'm odd like that. The recipe section is my favourite bit atm.

I'm sooo dreading weighing myself this week, it's not gonna be pretty <sigh>

Hiya huns...... wink

Hullo people... <more me>

Just checking in so this will be on my 'threads i'm on' thingy.

Today hasn't been too bad but I feel so fat. Haven't had any exercise today & need to poo but can't... TMI?? Good grin

ConnieComplaint Sun 17-May-09 20:02:02

Well, ya see, I'm having to post drivel so I can reach the magic number of posts & be presented with a key for the recipe section wink

But, I like it

They all seem like a really supportive bunch of girls, apart from the txt spk & hun... but I do think that's because it's not allowed/approved of here & tend not to post anywhere else blush

Did I tell yous I bought a bikini? <cringe> It will likely never see the outside of my suitcase............

MadameCheese Sun 17-May-09 20:02:48

Lol Titsalina and Connie! My guts have completely changed too on SW <ouchies>


Lilyloo Sun 17-May-09 20:24:42

Ooh new thread!!
Well not too bad this weekend i don't think. But Friday was really bad so not sure what Tuesday weigh in will bring. Think dp has fallen off the wagon after blaming the dc's for eating the bar of dairy milk he brought from the shop hmm
Haven't eaten enough today as had alpen cereal bar for breakfast and then a sunday roast at 3 ish. Am now hungry and will suffer for missing a meal!!!

TitsalinaBumsquash Sun 17-May-09 20:37:45

DP asked me is i was going to be sporting a Bikini when we go on holiday in Aug i said "not so much" i son't do Bikini's. grin

<Whispers> I have joined the Sparkly place, i am waititng for the to approve me. grin

Does everyone else who goes to a group have that nasty 2lbs of fat thing?

The gross jelly type blob they stick on the table and when you loose 2lbs they go "ohhhh you have ost one of these!" our group one is all hairy and has fluff and lint all over it, it really is minging. grin

Well have a <hug> huns, im off. wink

Ooh, hello .... found you all! Wow - this thread has been busy! Haven't been on for a week or so and still haven't caught up with all the new messages - there are LOADS! Lots of lovely recipes and meal ideas which I'm looking forward to trying, so thanks everyone. I can't get to class at the moment and am using my old books, so some of the new eating plans (EE, for example) are a bit foreign to me. Also, I can't get my head round how some foods were ok years ago but are off limits now (tinned macaroni cheese is one - I noticed somebody asking about it further back on the thread). Oh well, just waiting for my rice to cook and then having a big vegetable curry for my dinner. Cheated and put a little bit of coconut milk into it, which kinda un-SW's it a bit, but it is soooooo yummy grin.

Hi, I'm getting back on track tomorrow as today has gone a bit pear shaped after a very good start.

I wonder how many more 'back on track' days I am going to need to have. I have 3 months before my holiday and have 2 stone to lose. Can it be done? Or more to the point, can I do it?

I'm getting back on track too, really struggling with combining SW with shift work though. Any ideas for portable meals?

Also, how many syns are walkers baked crisps please?

ConnieComplaint Sun 17-May-09 21:11:58

Kid I think if you count 3 months as 12 weeks - then 2 stone = 28lb

It looks like if you had a loss of 2lb per week that'd be 24lb! Nearly 28lb

<disclaimer: I have failed my math GCSE twice>

lunavix Sun 17-May-09 21:16:08

Thank you!!!

Sorry I'm going to be such a pain, I can't find my books anywhere!!!

Any idea if tesco light choices roasted veg cous cous is free on green?
And is special k a healthy b?


TitsalinaBumsquash Sun 17-May-09 21:18:30

Right meal plan done. <Said in Gordon Ramsey type way>

I must go shopping in the morning. I have a CF Parents meeting tommorrow evening and the resp nurse always brings homemade, yummy cake. I must avoid. Same with my amdram group one of the guys is a keen cake maker and decorator and awlasy brings them in, its murder becuase i can't be rude and say no................... wink

kid Sun 17-May-09 21:33:43

OMG, 12 weeks, is that really how long I have left until I go on holiday?
Right, no more take aways and not more falling off the wagon. I have to lose weight!
24lb will do for now, at least I won't feel too big.

I can't believe I have wasted so much time thinking about doing SW, arghhh!

fuzzypeach Sun 17-May-09 21:51:48

hello! just posting to get this on my threads, been good again today and had a good session at the gym this morning, quite pleased with how strict i am being with myself at the mo! am still craving some choc though, but i couldnt just have a little i would have loads and anyway dh at work and kids in bed so cant go to get some anyway sad

ConnieComplaint Sun 17-May-09 22:01:35

Luna - I can't find that couscous in my book, but any other flavours are either free of 0.5 syns... and they're not light choices, so I'd think it's either free or 0.5syns? (sorry if this doesn't help!!)

shock Fuzzy - the gym on a Sunday morning? That's dedication for you!!!

I have just made my lunch for tomorrow @ work.. having an EE day. 2 slices of nimble with boiled egg mashed... followed by a HUGE tub of grapes, strawberries, pineapple & raspberries with 1/2 tub of low fat cottage cheese... (I made up double & am also having this for breakfast!)

Dinner I think will be stir fry of some kind, as it's my sister's birthday & I have to go over with her gift!

Haven't done too bad today, am waiting for DH to make a cuppa so I can have my other Alpen light (HEB for today!)

Who was it asked for portable lunch ideas?

How about pasta with a LF dressing (Tesco do one that's free), cucumber & tomato mixed through? You can add other vegs such as peppers, red onion, sweetcorn.. (on a green day obviously)

On a red day I LOVE thick slices of ham rolled up with something inside (Now I had rediscovered cottage cheese I'll put it in with grapes) they are hugely filling.

Do you have a microwave @ work? If so how about a baked spud?

kid Sun 17-May-09 22:09:59

Is the couscous in a 60g pot?
If so, its 1 syn on a green day (10 syns on red)

kid Sun 17-May-09 22:15:52

For lunch I often have couscous (mixed with veg stock cube) and 1/2 tin of vegetable curry. The tin is 12syns, so that makes it 6syns a serving. Still quite high and I'd love a syn free veg curry that I don't have to spend ages making if anyone knows of such a thing!

MamaG Sun 17-May-09 23:21:02

God I've had a DREADFUL day

breakfast - 2 slices of wm bread with dairylea (a scraping of it)

Lunch - chips and corn from KFC shock

Dinner - a big pizza from takeaway shockshock

Snack - a can of lager <burp>

I only lost 1lb this week so I thought fuck it. Not the best idea is it

I fell off the wagon a bit after missing class but had lost 1st 3lb... put some back on but not sure how much so I am going to weigh in (at home, sick of wasting money on the class) and be back on track for tomorrow.

I am going to be relying on you ladies for al my moral support! What is this sparkly place you mention?

I have made salad for lunch tomorrow, breakfast and dinner are sorted too and I even packed myself some snacks to take to work <preen> I am going to be SO SO good now. Promise.

(I have just eaten a chocolate sundae though blush food doesn't count after 10pm though right?)

Snorris Mon 18-May-09 00:45:22

This is the sparkly place!

I've done a food diary thread & weigh-in one because for me I'm more likely to stick with the plan if I write it down. There is a place on the official SW website but I find it a bit of a faff. I'm also no good at posting inane drivel wink so it'll help boost my post count. Might get there in about 6 months grin.
