Day Two.

Hi guys and gals,

Well today I overslept and didn't wake up while 12:30pm ( I am an insomniac so don't go to sleep while early hours of morning). So because of this I didn't have breakfast. Naughty I know.

Dinner was a slice of the Breakfast Quiche/ Flan.

Tea was boiled potatoes (HEB - they did have the skins on but I ate the skins off before taking the photo as I wanted them to look pretty), turkey and spinach tossed in garlic. I also had a glass of milk (HEA) and some bread and butter (HEB and 1syn).

People may wonder why I eat Turkey so much well today I will show you. My favourite cooking gadget is my George Foremans. You can see exactly how much fat comes off of what your cooking, burgers etc are fatty, as you can see from this picture, apart from being a slight residual left from the marinade there is no fat and the drip tray is spotless. Meaning the turkey is extremely healthy.

Here is a picture of my tea: If you are wondering what the white creamy sauce is, its similar to a raita. I use natural yoghurt, mint sauce, finely cut garlic, paprika and chilli and it is lovely and refreshing with meals. For curry's I just use mint sauce, yoghurt, chilli powder and finely chopped onion and cucumber, mmmm, delish

Day One.

Today is Day One. The first day of many, I thought it would be hard and it has, but it has been made easier by the fact I have an infection in my foot so can't stand and walk on it so I couldn't get to the fridge lol.

Breakfast consisted of cheese toasties. Made using W.M bread (HEB) and Cheese slices (5 syns).

Dinner was breakfast quiche, made with sausage meat, bacon, onions, egg, cottage cheese, mushrooms and milk (HEA), it was absolutely delish and even Grandma and Granddad liked it.

Tea was an even scrummier Turkey Curry; turkey, tomato, spinach, onion, mushrooms, garlic and spices. Again a total syn free meal and was gorgeous.

Then for pudding I had a magnum which was 9 syns!!! Eeek!!! Nah to be honest that's not bad really as it is still within my syns allowance for the day :)


This is me, my name is Danielle, although many people know me as Ikkle, how ironic, given the size of me. This is the most recent photo I have taken on the 22nd May 2009. I am 21 years old a clothes size 24/26 and currently weigh 23 stone 8lb.

I have a lot of health issues and confidence problems and so need to lose weight, but I dont just need to lose weight, I want to as well. I have a holiday booked for September and I would love to be an 18/20 for then. I am not sure if that is possible but I sure hope it is.

I will be doing Slimming World, from home, as I can't afford to go to meetings and I hope you will all follow, support and join me on my journey. I will post progress pictures as well as recipes and photo's of food as well as a diary of my progress.

To all those slimming as well, good luck.
