Well I am very pleased with myself today as I have now lost the half stone that I put on at Christmas.  In fact I lost 4lbs in total this week and that was a surprise for me because....confession time now.... I cheated on Saturday when we were out!  We stopped at a nice service station on the way back home from our trip to Inverness and I was tired after traipsing around and my back felt like it was about to give out so I needed to sit down and eat something.  To save me cooking later we both had a main course only.  I had chicken curry and chips and have to say it was delicious!  OH had haddock and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed too.  We finished off with a nice mug of tea each and I felt much better for it.  I think it keeps your metabolism going to shake it up sometimes.
I plan to do a Lidl shop tomorrow as I need to stock up some fruit and veg.  I made some veg pasta sauce in the week and mixed the last of it into my cheesy rice dish, adding a couple of chopped quorn sausages and that has been my dinner for the last two days.  I saw on the news that quorn sales have risen by 20% since the horsemeat scandal.  I only buy the sausages and the mince to make a chilli as its only me that will eat it because OH finds it tasteless.
I made a nice pastry less quiche in the week using a packet of dried pasta with broccoli and cheese, four beaten eggs and a tub of low fat cottage cheese.  Even ate some of this for breakfast to make a change from boiled eggs.
This next week I must try and have a couple more meat meals to mix things up and hopefully give me a loss next weigh-in although I expect to settle down to a 1- 2 lb loss and that will be fine because its better to lose it gradually as more likely to keep it off.

  1. Congratulations. As you say it is better to come off slowly and that way it seems to stay off.
