Linking in with FrugalinBucks blog, today is the day we weigh in and publish our losses or maybe even our gains!
I thought I would show you a typical diet day for me.

  Breakfast today was two boiled eggs and 2oz wholemeal bread, toasted and scraped with marmite.  I had a cup of tea and mid morning a cup of coffee.

Lunch was a big bowl of homemade Tuscan bean soup.

1 onion, chopped 
Clove garlic, chopped
3 med carrots, cubed
4 med potatoes, cubed
4oz cabbage, shredded
4 oz peas
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tin cannelloni beans, rinsed
2 veg stock cubes
2 pints water
Fry light
Large pinch mixed herbs

Using fry light, soften onion then add garlic and fry for another minute.
Add the rest of the vegetables along with the tomatoes and stock.
Add a large pinch of mixed herbs and bring to the boil and put lid on to simmer for approx 25 mins until veg has softened.
Add the cannelloni beans and simmer for another couple of mins, then serve.

Dinner was SW chips made by slicing potatoes and spraying baking tray with fry light.  Spray potatoes and put straight in oven about 200 C for approx 25 mins until brown.  I also put in 2 quorn sausages and had half a tin of baked beans and a fried egg, again done with fry light.
Pudding was a banana with some fat free natural yogurt (didn't take a pic of it because I ate it before I remembered!)
In the evening I had my treat with a cup of tea

Yep!  The cream eggs are already in the shops!
As you can see I certainly don't starve and I am very happy to report a 4 lb weight loss this week. :-)

  1. Well done on the weight loss. I am celebrating that as of today I have kept off 14 kilos of list weight. I'd like to think it has gone forever!
