If you’d like to join in, simply write a post about your experiences and pingback to this one, then leave a link to it in the comments.
I am not, nor do I claim to be, a professional dietician or nutritionist. Anyone who wants or needs to lose serious weight should consult a medical professional or GP. This is not a diet programme.
Last week I asked what put you off about diets.
Val of murisopsis commented about snacks being a weakness and trying to plan menus in advance.
For my part, I learned that the yogurt I thought was good for me has been re calibrated and now isn’t, plus grapes is a weakness that I have had to stop buying because of the high sugar content. They will be reintroduced, but not for a while.
Melanie has added her thoughts too and some great memes!
Not sure what topic to go for this week as it’s been a bit of a mixed bag for me.
I maintained for SW last week and after Friday’s diabetic chat and my phone call on Wednesday, I decided to re-assess my diet and see what tweaking could be done.
I’ve found an alternative yogurt and can also have Quark on my fruit salads, both of which are only one syn for a generous serving. I treated myself to a bag of frozen prawns as I like to add an apple to the mix for more bite. I’ve had a couple of days where our main meal was late and what with Maya joining our family, my final meal has gone a bit by the wayside. Skipping meals is not usually a good way to lose weight in the long run,
but I’ve dropped a couple of pounds so I’m quite pleased. I am also being stricter with syns and not necessarily having 2 A and 2 B options every day. Basically, I am reverting back to the beginning when I first joined SW and wasn’t a target member. My weigh in day has changed from Sunday to Monday, not that it really makes a difference as I still text in in the morning.
So, have you designed your own diet from the successful bits of others you’ve tried?
Have you gone back to one that worked, or found one that worked better for you?
