    Best of luck with calorie counting, are you going to weigh in once a week? :)

    I'm a vegetarian doing calorie counting too :) (I'm assuming you are given your menus anyway!)

    Well done on the 8lb, that's a fantastic first loss and will really help you to stay motivated, I'm sure :D

    Quorn cottage pie is great, lovely and warm and filling but still low in calories :)

    Looks like you are doing really well. Don't worry about the digestives, they were mini, and you stayed within your calories! :)

    Good Luck with the rest of the week x

    Thanks girls :) I don't think I'll be having a big loss this week - I weigh daily and it's dropped about 1lb so far (weigh in tomorrow morning) but any movement in the right direction is fine. I really ought to do a bit more exercise. :D

    I only plan my evening meals, and then make sure I've got a selection of tasty low fat stuff in for the other meals.
