Starting again... Anyone looking for a buddy?

Okay, so I'm going to start Slimming World again. I lost about three stone last year on it after having my DD but I've put it all back on and more :/ and I feel stuck in a massive rut.
This time however, I'm back at work so can't make it to group, so will be doing it from home. If anyone else is thinking about starting SW, or already has, I'd love to have someone to chat to and check in with! Anybody?

I used 27 syns one day (oops) and then close to maximum every other day apart from non on Tuesday. I just had a really bad week I planned well and then just didn't stick to it!
I didn't take any measurements, my jeans feel a little looser but that's all. Think I may measure myself tomorrow, I'm only 9 pounds from target but am 99 percent sure I will be lowering it!
How's you day been?

Better than yesterday, thanks. I couldn't decide what to have for lunch yesterday and ended up having a random boiled egg, ryvita and laughing cow cheese combo - yeuch, if you get the chance, don't bother!
This evening I couldn't decide what to have for tea - the rest of the family had chips done in the Actifry and pork chops. I had a mix of baked beans with lentils I found in the fridge, actifry chips and sweetcorn. I synned the oil I did the chips in - pure laziness because I couldn't be bothered to make the 'syn free' chips.
I really must get more organised about meal planning!
It's only my second week so I haven't started hitting the syns properly yet - I'm still on the SW honeymoon

Well done green that's amazing! I'm off for a walk later with DD so hope that helps with the weight loss.
Good luck for tonight Katie and Where.
Not sure what to eat today, I'm thinking an egg bacon and feta salad (2.5 syns) for lunch. Not sure what to have for dinner. Maybe steak with a jacket potato and a spinach garlic and peppercorn sauce with broccoli.
What's everyone else eating today?

It's GreenCurlyTeeth here. My own user name was making me feel sick so I've changed !
becks I go walking with my DD too! She is almost 12 and it's nice to walk around chatting to each other. At home she can be a grumpy mare but when we are out she seems to open up
For lunch I think I'll have left over veg curry and rice from last night. Not sure about tea yet, I'll have a look on the SW site for inspiration. I try not to cook separate meals for me so need to find something to feed all of us and leave DD and DP feeling satisfied.

Well, I'm gutted!!
I tried so hard and I've only lost half a pound. So frustrating.
My consultant looked at my food diary and said I wasn't doing anything wrong it just sometimes goes that way.
I'm going to buy loads of green veg on the way home!

That dinner sounds lovely. I'm not to sure what I will have yet most likely pasta as dc have eaten and oh at work.
We was told at group about the new Iceland low fat ready meals not sure if anyone would be interested. I got two today to keep in the freezer just in case. I got a macaroni cheese (four syns) and a chicken curry (five syns)
Tried on a pair of jeans I've not been able to get past my knees in two years and they got right the way up to my bum! I think I'm going to use them as motivation.
I've had today:
Breakfast: strawberries and a alpen bar
Snack: carrots sticks and alpen bar
Lunch: 2 poached eggs, slimming world chips, ham and spaghetti hoops.
Il have some more fruit later and I also grabbed a mugshot from tesco in roast chicken flavour as it's no syns, wish me luck with that one!

Well tea was yummy and really filling. I couldn't eat it all. I'm trying to recognise when I'm full and not over eat.
Today I had:
Breakfast: 2 weetabix with skimmed milk.
Lunch: was fruit and a yoghurt
Dinner: chicken skewers, corn on the cob and special fried rice. Yoghurt for dessert.
I'm on a night shift tonight, not sure what to take with me yet. Probably cherry toms, cucumber, and feta to munch on and a couple of biscuits to go with a cuppa, maybe a banana too.
