    Hi all,

    3 lb this week...I was holding thumbs that it would be a bit more, but given my usual resistance to losing, I think 13 lb over two weeks of induction isn't too bad...

    Anyway, the below is what I am singing to the tune of Bachman Turner Overdrive's 'you aint seen nothing yet'...

    Any loss is good loss...mm, mm, yes I took what I could get, mm. mm. them scales looked at me with a big blue dial...and said you aint seen nothing yet...no no baby you just aint seen nothing yet

    Hugs xxx

    Hi Louise,


    thank you and no, I don't mind at all...

    Breakie is either two boiled eggs beaten in a cup with butter (I love it <smile>) or Bacon, egg, tom, sometimes black pudding for a treat too

    lunch is either a boiled egg, tuna in oil, salad, with around two cups of salad, lettuce, red peppers, onion, raw courgette and 4 or 5 olives...or a fish in butter sauce or chicken breast but same salad

    Dinner is steak, chicken, mince or fish with cauliflower, fine beans, or broccoli and roasted courgette...again to about a cupful.

    I am drinking quite a bit of water and I think they has helped get rid of a lot of the water retention, and I have a mid morning and mid afternoon black coffee...but not feeling hungry and will now start to add some mims in I think, cos they sound delicious.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Hugs

    Well done - that's nearly a stone in two weeks!

    The menu sounds good - although if you're staying on induction I would cut out the onion and black pud, they are carby (sorry)

    Thanks Leanne and Lady,

    Although Lady, I had started to like you until you crushed my black pudding affair : D

    I do only have it once a week and I find the onion is ok so long as I stick to just one slice a couple of times a week. I'm prone to yeast and find the onion helps.

    Sorry babe :D

    Re the onions, most people here use spring onions, lower in carbs

    I'll try them, but they don't have that same kind of bite, especially when eating them raw. And the black pudding is gone...well, for this week : )
