Well Done everyone. To LOSE anything is astounding. To stay "on plan" is amazing at this time of year.
You should be extra chuffed. It shows real commitment to carve out a better lifestyle.

It was our groups christmas do last night, have been looking forward to it for 2 months but littlest was up all night on thursday - we think it was the central heating so I was tired. Then Hubby was made redundant yesterday. Then told he could reapply for a lesser paid role - we think this the firms attempt to get everyone on the new contract rules "Terminate without cause." It's hard not to take it personal as I know a lot of people are facing a jobless Christmas, but with him being a foreigner, it's easy for them to line him up as first out. *sigh*
ANYHO!
Meal wasn't anything more than a frozen -re-heated pub job, with ill mannered staff. Ruined the night. Came home early. Then realised it was my round. I feel like a cheapskate. *sigh* (for effect and all )
The entire week has been off plan as per doctor, I hope to maintain now with a gain over christmas to lose after.

I haven't been on the thread for a few weeks but still on the SW wagon. In 10 weeks i have lost 1 stone 3.

Today at class we were told SW are changing a few things and that oat so simple will no longer be a HEB. Has anyone else heard that? Really annoying as i have stocked up on loads of these

A lot of "non-veg" fans at group started blending veg and adding it to passata. Broc, Carrots, basil 1 beef oxo = beefy soup. Follow it with fruit for your SF. after a few weeks of things like that they found that they ate more veg styles of SF.

Good luck for surviving the day. WE are off to various christmas things...mulled wine and mince pies everywhere!

Ah so I have written off the first half of this week, from tomorrow I will be going on a push to still see a loss (even just a small one) this week.

Today:
B/L: small tin of spaghetti hoops, banana, cup of tea with milk from HeA
T: chicken dinner - grilled chicken, small yorkshire 3 syns, gravy 1syn, mixed veg and maybe a couple of very small roasties 2 syns

So 6 syns
HeB will probably be bran flakes before bed
HeA is my usual milk

Tomorrow will be mostly free stuff, actually I may make a choice for tea which will be entirely free in which case syns will be hot choc before bed.

Someone will probably say that blended stuff doesn't count to your SF as it's lost it's fibre (a bit like fruit smoothies)

So you mean have something lke SW chips and egg and make up the SF with fruit. That would work. Another alternative is to have some Green days instead then you can have extra HEXs.

There were various changes last year when the new books came out too. If I'm honest I've just stuck to my old book and what I'd learned. One thing I did do was go back to WM bread. I used to have WW Brown Danish as you could have 3 slices but that changed. Sometimes it's down to manufacturers coming up with new 'improved' recipes. What I'd do is go on eating the OSS and chalk it up as something that could be tweaked if your weightloss stalled and you wanted to be extra strict with yourself.

I've been more or less sticking to plan. I'm not feeling 100% so haven't much of an appetite so I think eating less is probably compensating for the few 'naughties' I've had.


Sorry to hear about your DH shellie and the horrid meal. It's always a risk eating out at this time of the year. Your DH's company is allowed to reorganise to save money but not to choose him for redundancy because he's foreign. I do hope they're being fair and honest.

I wondered if it was the same for veg as fruit.. in theory you'd think so but looking on various threads regarding if soups etc made with sf's should be synned i'm finding its ok to have them blended!

lazy day today, had a lie in!

B/L: bacon and philly on toast he (a+b)
few plums and nectarine mid afternoon
T: spag bol, (ex lean mince, added.. onion, mushroom, peppers, toms, passata, stock cube, lazy chilli and garlic).. yoghurt, banana
syns: peanut hifi 6 dunked in a mini choc phiily pot 4.5 yummy!

Back again. After 9 weeks have lost 1st 4.5lbs. Had been away for a week visiting my DD so was enjoying a few treats.... And still lost 2lbs coz I really tried to have good breakfast and lunch then relax for evening. ...had hoped to lose 2 st by Xmas.... May not quite make it but am so happy this plan works and even with slip ups and nights off you can get back on track and lose weight!

welcome bethesda

Feeling much more positive today despite being struck down with a cold yet again! My immune system must be absolutely shot at the moment

Breakfast: Bran flakes (HeB) with milk (from HeA) and a cuppa
Lunch: Jacket potato and tuna and a little light mayo (2syns) OR a tin of spaghetti (free) whichever it is it will be followed by a couple of pieces of fruit
Tea: bf wants cottage pie so I'm tempted to make his the usual way but then make mine just veg with a little gravy (2syns) and the usual mash topping. Not really feeling like meat today plus I'm trying to stay light on syns and including the meat would make it 8syns :O In fact I'm tempted to get some cheap foil dishes and make a second 'normal' one to stash in the freezer so there's no waste

Off in to town so that's a good hour or two of walking to add to my body magic, should get my gold award in a week or two, and I will be picking up some fruit and veg.

Actually thinking on it, has anyone tried Quorn mince in dishes like spag bol or cottage pie? I've only ever used their chicken style pieces but if I'm right the mince is free(?) so I could use that to keep syns low in a few meals...

Re the fruit/veg thing apparently it's something to do with the way they breakdown when blended.... fruit has lots of natural sugar and becomes synned.


After being totally off the wagon since Friday evening, I can't wait to eat lots of fruit and stuff today. I also need to WI wednesday morning as I can't get to any of the evening groups this week. Need 1.5 to club 10 but I'm hoping to just STS at least.

Good luck to all weighing in today x

Welcome to all the newbies and well done to all the losers. Huge hugs to all in need but gentle ones for me please. Have got an inflamed sciatic nerve and have had since last saturday so am blaming it for my 1lb gain this week as been popping pain killers and eating rubbish to compensate for the pain . Got so bad yesterday and last night that I'm off work today as working with 4/5 yr olds is agony. To much bending and low furniture has finished me off. I was daft enough to struggle in last week with no appreciation so am being kind to myself and taking the time to get better. I am determined to make the word 'mug' disappear from my forehead
Hope everyone still has their mojo and is keeping the faith
Its not what you do but the way that you do it, thats what get results
