Spinach, lettuce, Cucumber, tomatoes, red pepper, 1 boiled egg, 2 bacon medallions and some low fat cottage cheese

I’m back in business, back to chopping, peeling, boiling, weighing, measuring, and watching every morsel that goes into my mouth…. I’m going for the ‘greengrocers gut’ look, fruit and veg galore, with plenty of water (been on the toilet most of the day!). May only be day 2 but I’m in the zone!!! I have had 2 small wines but have measured them and they are only 3 points a glass…. (120ml) hallelujah!!! so onward and upward… here I come!!

End of the day:

Day 2

Flippin heck, I’ve only gone and jumped ship!!!

I pondered for a good 30 minutes then took the drastic step and went over to the dark side!!! I’m pretty scared, it’s new territory and I’m totally lost at present but I’ll make it through I’m sure!!

I have come to the decision, I’m just a gannet!! I pile the freebies onto my plate and I have not been honestly accounting for a dash of mayo, an extra chocolate out the box… so something drastic had to happen.

My weight is sneakily creeping up (not helped by love of weekend alcohol) and I’m no spring chicken… the older I have got the more difficult it is to shift the pounds…

So for £12.95, I’ve committed to a month of online WW… still getting my head round the smart points but I have a quota (30 a day) and also a flexible 28 for use as and when needed. I have an online diary and know for me, recording it visibly works.. so maybe… possibly it’ll work… I’ll keep you posted of course!!!

Wish me luck 😬!!!

Big Mac in a bowl 


We were’t sure what to have for dinner, and being that I’ve not been in the slimming world frame of mind lately, I was thinking a take away?, some junk food?

Day 35

Started the day with a bacon and tomato butty using a small whole meal roll (heB) and trimmed bacon.

Lunch was the spaghetti bolognese with Parmesan (heA) 

Then it happened… one glass of wine (5), it’s all still going well at this point, then hubby gave me a (I gasp in shame) cherry bake well tart and then later, he practically cohersed me (by planting another of the innocent little pies under my nose) and forced me into eating another!! Oh my!! 20 syns!!! 20 syns!!! 

2 crumpets and a teaspoon of butter later (no longer counting), I deem the day at a loss again grrrrr- and I think in this house, we will be banning the bakewells!!! The evil tart!!! 


Tomorrow’s another day, hoping to have a few 100% days!!
