    Hi all,

    I was a devoted slimming world-er for years but as you can see in my sig/stats (need to clear it but on phone) it just hasn't worked for me this time so on a recommendation from a friend am trying low carb.

    Started on the 1st weighing in at 10.9 with a target of 9.7 (for now) wedding is in May and want to be more like 9.3-9.5 by then.

    So far, so good with one slip up on sat night. Am struggling with on the move work lunches if anyone has any suggestions? Particular stuff I can buy out from M&S/sainsburys etc :-)

    Will be weighing myself weekly at home and reporting back. Have also started 30 day shred did it at the start of the year so going for round 2 but won't be everyday - wish me luck!

    Switch to unsweetened alpro soya milk? Tastes great in tea to me and practically zero carb.

    Re work lunches from m&s - they do individual chicken legs, packs of flaked poached salmon, mini cheeses, some of their flavored chicken bites are ok, they do great 1 packs of ham, salami, beef etc which you can put with some cheese and a salad. They also do green salads with egg and potato - just leave the potato.

    Pret a manger do a crayfish 'no bread sandwich' which is great (the others in the range contain carbs).
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    Hey skinny bride - well done on a great first week. I, like you, did low carb for my wedding just over 3 months ago now. It worked a treat and made me feel slimmer - i only did low carb kn the last few months though as id fallen off the ww wagon earlier.
    Like you i did still have a bit of skimmed milk in hot drinks and had the odd bit of fruit.
    Im back on the wagon again after finding it a struggle to get back on track post wedding. I know a few low carb weeks will help me feel better for xmas though.
    Good luck! X

    Thanks moonlights, I will do!

    Today's work food consists of, handful of raspberries for breakfast and then Parma ham and Parmesan (25g) salad for lunch.

    Dinner I'm thinking shallow fried salmon fillet with green veg :-)
