Marking place Smile
Off to meet a friend for lunch somewhere I've never heard of that doesn't have anything online to check ahead so hopefully there's something tasty and swable


BlooBagoo · 18/08/2017 14:03

Well done @Groovester!

So far so good today. Overnight oats for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch. One bag of mini malt biscuits stolen from the kids' packed lunch supplies, for 6 syns.

Weekends are always my problem each time though and DH has finished work early so I hope he doesn't suggest going out for a couple in the local. I have absolutely no willpower when it comes to going out. Blush

My account was being weird, so I've had to change it - I'm @TurquoiseOwl (obviously!) Smile

SW frozen curry tastes like any other frozen curry (in a good way, I like a ready meal sometimes). I think it'd be more useful if it were a whole meal rather than two portions of curry and no side.


Trills · 18/08/2017 14:18

Groovestar did you just sneak in and say that you won Woman of the Year? Well done! :o

Well done @Groovester πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

ohh missed that Groovester, well done!

Lunch out was fine, had sweet potato soup (minimal syns lets say 2 for any oil) and a small white roll no butter calling it my heb for today
then a seafood salad with smoked salmon, crayfish tails and prawns, loads of speedy salad, dressing on side which didn't take, and boiled potatoes.

The white roll has however totally disagreed with me and feeling pretty damned yucky :( so probably no tea tonight now. Maybe a bit of fruit.


strawberrykiss36 · 18/08/2017 19:02

A new thread! It's been a busy couple days and I've missed it all.

Had my first weigh in today and lost 8lbs - couldn't believe it! For a 13st start weight I'm pretty bloody chuffed with that


strawberrykiss36 · 18/08/2017 19:02

And well done Groovester! πŸ‘πŸ‘


BlooBagoo · 18/08/2017 19:04

Fab first loss @strawberrykiss36 :)


Groovee · 18/08/2017 19:26

Well done strawberry.

I'm in a huff. Couldn't find m&s red velvet cake on the syns online. Did the 20cal rule. 16.5 syns 😱 had a pink and white wafer instead.


Groovester · 18/08/2017 19:51

Thank you everyone. I'm delighted! Still on plan (despite a strawberry tart yesterday...) but struggling with the cold turkey of getting all the sugar out of my system again. Headaches and cravings for junk.

Well done @Groovester Smile that's amazing!


mayathebee · 18/08/2017 21:01

Congratulations Groovster, that's brilliant.

Congratulations on all the losses too Skeleton, Strawberry and anyone else I've missed.

I'm home from hols so going to weigh in properly tomorrow and make Sat my regular WI day. No food in the house so I've had 2 plums, a nectarine and a bag of mini Maryland cookies for tea (6 Syns). I'm off to plan some meals and do an online shop - any recommendations for fav recipes?


Tweetypie30 · 18/08/2017 21:14

Strawberry - I've got a similar start weight to you, 13st 3lbs, and this is my first week. How much have you got to loose?


Tweetypie30 · 18/08/2017 21:16



strawberrykiss36 · 18/08/2017 21:29

Tweetypie30 - start weight was 13.2, I've set my target for 10st but I'm only 5'2, so that's still overweight for me, so ideally I'd like to get down to about 9.7 :)


latedecember1963 · 18/08/2017 21:45

Congratulations Groovester and Strawberry!πŸŽ‡
Been a hectic couple of days so we've come to the caravan. We're having a meal out tomorrow to celebrate DS's A-level results and also our wedding anniversary which falls on Sunday. Aiming to have grilled salmon and veggies but will probably have a pudding.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!


Tweetypie30 · 18/08/2017 21:59

Strawberry - snap. I'm 5'1. My target is 10st as well, my pre baby weight. Although to start with I've just set it for 12st as I've joined SW several times before but never lost more than 10lbs. I know the plan works it's just my motivation that's broken! My dream weight is 8st 10lbs but that feels impossible and the scales haven't been that number in over ten years.


Groovee · 18/08/2017 22:00

I'm 5ft1 too. Started up at 16.4 last year. Started SW 15,7. Hoping to get down at least another stone by my birthday in 17 weeks.


BlooBagoo · 18/08/2017 22:32

Gosh you guys make me feel so tall! I'm 5'5 but DH is a good bit taller so I always feel tiny. Haha. I've got a long way to go for weight though, started at 19, lost some before joining up and currently at 17.1 (cursing as I was 16.13 last week). I have a lot of health issues and medication which doesn't help so I know I'll go slower than most but the important part is that I'm getting there. :)

Speaking of DH... guess what he suggested and guess what I agreed to. Blush


strawberrykiss36 · 18/08/2017 22:42

BlooBagoo Definitely with you there - dead happy with 8lbs but I know that won't happen again and I don't care how long it takes to come off, the important thing is that it does and that it stays off!

Tweety - same here, not been under 10 stone since I was about 18 so not even sure if it's possible now after kids, but we'll see!


halfbuffy · 18/08/2017 23:41

Hello! Can I join in? I've started SW up again after having DD and I've got just over 2 stone to lose! I've already lost 4lbs in the last couple of weeks but I'm struggling to find things I can make quickly or just grab as a snack while I'm looking after the baby!
