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)
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.

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 :)

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
Might do a little gym session to compensate for the syns

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
Pear poached in winter spice ribena, ribena free, cooked pear 2 syns . With a spoon of yogurt (not strictly SP)
I think I need to eat less, I seem to eat loads more than most of you!

Thanks guys 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.

Well done heyhey and tessie
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.
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.

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!
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!

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?
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.
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.
