    BeaBeas calorie counting diary!

    Hi all, I used to be a regular on Minimins under a different username a few years ago but can't remember my log in details so have re-registered

    I am 24 and have a 13 month old daughter. I am a serial dieter and have always been overweight. Tried every diet going! My most successful was Cambridge a few years ago where I lost 3st and got down to 12 and a half stones and a size 14, but I gained 2 stone during pregnancy and would like to lose it again and some more. I am trying calorie counting for the first time using MFP as I find other diets too restrictive and this seems to suit me more as I don't feel like there's anything I can't have if I fancy it.

    I started last Monday on a low carb diet and lost 3lb, but swapped to normal calorie counting on Friday so my official starting weight was 14st 8. My first goal is 13st as this is the weight where all of my lovely clothes hung up in the wardrobe actually fit me!!

    Forgot to say I'm trying 1500 cals then will reduce if I feel the need to

    Yesterday's food was:

    Breakfast - Mushroom omelette inside a tortilla wrap with bbq sauce. Weird combo but good! Plus a pink lady apple (526 cals)

    Lunch - Wholemeal pitta with mustard, gherkins, pastrami and pea shoots/baby leaves (209 calories)

    Dinner - Mushroom stroganoff with rice (509 calories)

    Snacks - 2 cups of coffee with milk and a 2 finger kitkat (133 calories)


    Today:

    Breakfast - Porridge made with almond milk and acacia honey and 2/3 of an apple (279 calories)

    Lunch - Wholemeal pitta with mustard, gherkins, pastrami and pea shoots/baby leaves (209 calories)

    Dinner - Moroccan chicken with cous cous (722 calories)

    Will add snacks at the end of the day!

    Got my first weigh in tomorrow. I can tell I've lost a few lb since starting low carb then swapping to cc as my winter coat wasn't as snug this morning

    Today's menu:

    Breakfast: Half an apple before going to play group, then porridge with almond milk and honey when I got back (307 cals)

    Lunch: Not had anything yet as I'm not hungry. I did have another Apple earlier though because they need eating. May have a pitta with pastrami at some point.

    Dinner: Homemade carrot, butternut squash and red lentil soup. Made with coconut milk so quite high in calories but tasty served with a naan bread (722 cals)

    Thanks bex, I'm really surprised as I was worried that sticking to 1500 was too high. I've not felt like I've been on a diet this week so will definitely be sticking with calorie counting!

    Excellent! All of your meals sound yummy too. That's the good thing about calorie counting, not restricted and tasty meals, makes it much easier to contend with :-)

    I did Cambridge for a while too but didn't like the taste of the packs.

    Anyway, I've subbed to your diary too :-D x
