Are they light cheese triangles with blue cheese IN THEM!!!!!!!!! Where, where, where!!!! How many cals are they each? I NEEEEEEEEED some!!!!!


I just went to check the calories in baby bel as I couldn't believe the difference between what you'd logged for a normal one 68 and a light one that I have at 35 .... Only to find the light ones are actually 50!!!! Dunno where I got 35 from but I think it was mfp :( ... On the positive side a normal one is actually only 60. ... This is straight from the horses mouth ie their own nutritional info. X

Ok ta. I was in Asda yesterday too!! Grrr ;). I need something different and tasty for the 'down days', one of those on a couple of ryvita or similar would do nicely I think :) x

Ooh good idea Jan. Theyd be lush on something like that. They don't taste like their the light ones either :)

Just home from work and scoffed: 2jaffa cakes, slice of ham, slice of cheese & a hobnob biscuit :doh:

Got to do something about this hunger after work. I've never been able to get it right! :( I think the fruit at work is making it worse though. Bananas are ok, anything else makes me feel really hungry an hour or so later. Do u think it could be the sugar in it? Either way guna have to think of something low carby to take. Maybe tuna tomorrow.

Stump was brilliant tonight. Thighs got a right beasting in the step half.
I have put a picture of the almost 20st me on my phone so everytime I use it I see it. Hopefully this will help snap me back into the swing of things. I feel so bloated, I am due my totm but I just feel uncomfortable atm. Had lunch a bit later this evening, 8:45 cuz of stump but when i'm not doing anything in the evenings I have it earlier and think I eat from boredom :sigh: why does this get so hard?!

B- 2x toast, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, sauce 381
L- pork loin, smoked cheese melted on top, brocolli, green beans, sweetcorn relish 476
*yog 88

*2satsumas & cottage cheese 230
D- tuna, sweetcorn s.cream, banana 363

I wish I knew why this can be so hard .. I really do :eek: - I mean even when you think you've got your mojo you can suddenly get caught out - as I did this morning! :(

It could be something to do with the sugar in the fruit I suppose ... ? Could it be to do with being tired? I think that's what happened to me this morning - well - I don't really know - do we ever??!! What are you drinking? I only ask that because I don't know if I've said on here but sometime ago I identified the fact that ordinary coffee makes me STARVING about 20-30 minutes after having it. If I stick to decaf I'm fine. Yet I can't really say it's caffeine because I drink quite a bit of coke zero ... unless that doesn't have the same effect because it's fizzy ...... ?

A couple of weeks ago I had 2 ordinary coffees one after the other in McDonalds. After a while I felt awful and was shaking, I was SOOOOO hungry. I was meeting DH so asked him to bring me a meal replacement bar. I ate that but felt really ill for the rest of the night ..... go figure :eek: xx

Yep, being tired can't help either. It was better friday morning and this morning not having the fruit in work so think i'll keep it like that.

So desperate to not look all belly next saturday that i'm guna use up the shake powder I have left from monday. Don't think I will be able to do it from tomorrow as i'm going step & pump in the morning but i have it in my head to NOT have the day after alcohol munchies. I HAVE to get into this dress and I HAVE to get into the 11st bracket for christmas otherwise i'm just guna end up in the 13st bracket and I do NOT want that. I've also got a very clingy dress to wear on new years eve so hopefully that'll help me stay focused over christmas. Hate this time of year with food and drink :( So 2x shakes, one low carb meal and snacks will be tuna & eggs. The only thing that might worry me is being so hungry lately after any phys. I just don't understand it! I've not had this before only after long runs.

Yesterday was too high on calories :sigh: but hopefully the run combatted some of them.

Long, sad, emotional day today. I'm surprised I havent succombed to scoffing myself silly!
Got up early as, unfortunatley I had to take our family dog to Woodside today to hopefully, get rehomed.
Long story, I wont go into it but I literally cried all the way there and all the way back and i've been balling my eyes out on and off all day. Such a rubbish day. He did make me laugh by pooing in reception before the lady took him down to the kennells though! I just hope he gets rehomed quick and by somebody who can give him the dogs life he deserves.

Anyways, had to have something extra to eat as I was up at 12 and had my shake and then I had stump at 6:30 and by 5 my belly was rumbling.

Weigh in tomorrow, hoping for STS after last weekend.

Alot better today thanks Jan.

Weigh in showed a 1.75lb loss in two weeks, so weighing at 12st 3lbs (alot better than the 12st 7.75lbs I sneaked a look at last saturday :eek:) Quite happy with that. If I can lose 4lbs between now and christmas (the more the better obvs) then i'll be happy.

Have my specials night out tomorrow. A 3course meal followed by lots of drink so I probably wont have much to each before hand but will update if I can :)
