pisghetti I core it and push the raisins down the hole. Put a bit of water in bottom of dish and bake for 25-30 mins or until soft. Raisins stayed soft. Really like it with yogurt/from frais/quark. Hi Zyla and Trinity.

Keep meaning to join thread properly and then forgetting to write. Was on call last night (dr) so have been craving comfort foods today like nobody's business. Made slimming world brownie, which is not delicious by anyone's standards but gives a good sized chunk for only 3 syns

Breakfast: jordans no sugar muesli and milk
Lunch: pasta with homemade tomato/veg sauce, tin of tuna and 20g reduced fat cheddar (1/2 hex a)
Snack: brownie
Supper: not sure yet.

Tomorrow I'm at work so generally do sp so I can take a sandwich but am getting so bored of eggs for breakfast.

Weigh in tomorrow night. Really hoping for a loss as put on half a pound last week after falling off wagon and this week have been angelic by comparison. But clothes still feel the same so we'll have to wait and see.

Really enjoy reading about all of your meal ideas etc.
Ps. Sorry this is getting long but I made SW hummus this evening to go with my chicken sandwich tomorrow and it really tastes much better than I expected without any olive oil.


calzone · 17/11/2015 19:22

B....bacon & egg thin

Snack.....Apple, banana

L.....chicken leftovers

ZylaB · 17/11/2015 19:28

B... Hifi light bars x2 (hex B and an awful habit I've got in for if I can't be bothered to make anything because the little one is needy)
L... Salad with leftover gammon, boiled eggs and couscous (1 syn as was a third of a packet worth 3 syns)
D... Jacket potato, beans and low fat sausages (2 syns each and had 3). No speed foods so had some fruit for pudding!

Snacks..none yet but there's either a curly wurly ( 6 syns) or a third of a bottle of wine for 8 syns coming my way later :)

RollerGirl7 · 17/11/2015 20:59

I fell off the wagon tonight, had an sp day but probably not enough speed food then just had an extra piece of toast and a steak bake. So way over on syns and weigh in day tomorrow.

B - eggs & melon
L - half a flatbread, cheese (hex a) & lots of veg
D - 2 hi first bars (hex b)

3 pieces of wm toast (2 Hexb & 1 synned) & spread
Steak bake

Might do a little gym session to compensate for the syns


TwoTonTessie · 17/11/2015 21:20

Another 2 pounds off so that's a total of 40 pounds in 19 weeks Smile


Buttwing · 17/11/2015 21:38

Well done heyhey that's amazing you must be really pleased!!


KittyOShea · 17/11/2015 21:42

Amazing hey hey and tessie.

I have a feeling this weeks weigh in will be bad for me (well not really a feeling- a certainty Grin) between the bad weekend and the period from hell with the associated bloating Sad


imwithspud · 17/11/2015 21:50

Well done hey hey and tessie. I really can't wait to get started now!

How many heb and hea's are you allowed per day? Is it just the one? And should you have them every day?


maygirl · 17/11/2015 22:29

Well done Heyhey and tessie! It's 1 heA and 1 HeB for normal plan extra easy . If doing SP where only eat speed and protein foods you get 1 heA and 2 heB .Every day .


imwithspud · 17/11/2015 22:39

Thanks maygirl!


maygirl · 17/11/2015 22:40

I had an SP day. Porridge HeB1 with spirilized Apple , milk A
L wholemeal roll HeB2 with tinned sardines in tomato sauce , celery, radishes, pepper, tomato
D baked mackerel, roast aubergine, peppers + tomatoes , broccoli, green beans

1 Cadbury eclair sweet from dd, not worth the 2 syns

I think I need to eat less, I seem to eat loads more than most of you!


Heyheyheygoodbye · 18/11/2015 08:01

Thanks guys Grin well done Tessie!!

Some of you know I had lost some weight before starting SW but then had put some back on. So now I am actually 3st2 down from my starting weight, including this 9.5lb with SW. Still got a long way to go but I'm absolutely made up. So glad I joined SW when I started falling off the wagon.


Pisghetti · 18/11/2015 10:15

Well done heyhey and tessie Smile

Zyla I have been making overnight oats - they take a minute to throw together in the evening when B is in bed and then they're ready to eat in the morning without any faff.

Today is:
B - overnight oats made with vanilla yogurt and Black Forest fruits
S - 2 x hifi bars
L - SW homity pie, Linda M sausages
D - I have an abundance of mushrooms and spinach so probably a curry.


Annarose2014 · 18/11/2015 12:18

Hello All, thought I'd pop in here rather than starting a new thread.

I joined last night and am so confuddeled!

This morning I measured out my 250mls milk for the day (HEa) and had a cup of tea and was horrified to discover I'd used 100ml in one cup! Shock

But heres the thing: I NEEEEEED milky tea. Repeatedly. In an IV plugged into my veins if possible. Don't really fancy almond or soya or goats milk, tbh. Rank.

So that was a shock this morning!


Annarose2014 · 18/11/2015 12:21

Also have another issue I've bumped up against in WW also - I loathe fromage frais! Any kind of yoghurty thing, really.

Also not a big fan of the ubiquitous summer fruit add-on.

So already worried about breakfasts as it seems you aren't allowed have plain porridge/cereal?



Heyheyheygoodbye · 18/11/2015 12:32

Anna what about breakfast muffins? Whisk up eggs with whatever meat and veg you like, bake in a muffin tin and keep in the fridge. DH has these for his breakfast every day! I tend to just have fruit Smile


tabulahrasa · 18/11/2015 12:33

It's 250ml of semi skimmed, 350 of skimmed, if you want more than that you'll have to syn it.

Adding fruit is just a way to up your speed foods and pad things out without using syns.

You can do what you like with your cereal, people just add yoghurt because it's free.

Basically as long as food is free or part of your healthy extras or syns, you're fine.


Annarose2014 · 18/11/2015 12:39

But you can't have it plain, is that right?

I'm def going to have to switch to skimmed milk.

I guess reading the booklet it was all about fromage frais and my heart sank a bit. They use it for everything!


tabulahrasa · 18/11/2015 12:45

You can have it plain if you want, there are no rules at all about what you do with your cereal.

Lots of people do things like use yoghurt or what have you - it's just as a milk replacement, if you don't need one, don't have one.

It really is as simple as eat as much free food as you want, with a third speed whenever possible and practical, have your healthy extras and your syns.

What you choose to have or how you eat it within that is entirely up to you.


Annarose2014 · 18/11/2015 12:58

Ok, thank goodness!

I suppose the first day is always wobbly. I haven't got a HEb today yet for example, as don't have much in except white sliced pan!
