This week's diet

This week's diet has been interrupted several times. Things like lunches out, large Sunday roasts all put a strain on your diet. Without being a social leper you have to join in these things are and so have to develop coping techniques. Picking something delicious but healthy on the menu can sometimes be tricky. Sometimes picking a basic sandwich can result in huge plateful of sandwich packed with meat and salad, which is bad really as long as it's not so it's in butter or mayonnaise. A healthy salad can be unhealthy when drowned in a dressing. Picking fried food is an obvious no-no.

Sometimes a treat is what you need, and as long as you have saved up some extra calories, syns or points then you should be fine. If you have to do it a couple of times in a week, it can get quite stressful having to juggle your entire diet so much.

Dieting properly again

I'm back on a diet. I've put on too much weight over Christmas.
I'm using the green and red days plan of slimming world. I could do with a new directory as mine is a little out of date. Have been looking on ebay but they're a bit dear. Will keep looking.

Have had 28g of porridge this morning and grated an apple in before microwaving it. Added a spoon of blackcurrant jam when it was done and it was very yummy.

An interestly easy way of getting an extra piece of fruit into my diet.

The scales haven't been so busy for years.

Interesting though to see what 28g of Christmas cake looks like. It's a tempting tasty morcel!

A memory of slimming club

Everyone without fail used to go and have a wee before weigh-in at slimming club.

That few ounces of liquid make all the difference!

I've done a week's good dieting and weighed myself last night and hadn't lost weight so went and had three segments of terrys chocolate orange segments (calories 122 for 3)

Today it appears the scales have worked in my favour so in future I won't scran down a massive plate of low fat curry and expect to have lost weight!
