:) hey everyone , ive seen a lot of you on diff threads but incase you dont know me im kiira :) from north wales.. started in february at 24 stoneish and im 13 stone 7lbs now.

before id sit in bed all day depressed with myself & my daily eatings would be

breakie ... a couple of takeaway bacon & egg baps with prob a milkshake

midmorning , chocolate crisps and other sweet things

lunch frozen pizza

tea- chinese takeaway

nightime - more snacking.. i remember once i sat and ate a whole multipack of walkers crisps (6 bags) in one day =[

NOW i dont eat snacks accept snacka jacks or rivita minis. if i eat choc its reduced fat ones that fit in with my healthy eating plans.

daily food is now.

breakie - bran flakes with sultanas & nat yogurt or skimmed milk.
mid mornin- banana or bag snacka jacks
lunch- chicken salad with wrap or pitta and muller yogurt.
Tea-time- jacket potato quorn and veggies (or fish with veggies) some nights ill have a ww meal with veggies but i check the labels make sure its healthy..

i dont eat bread anymore unless its nimble


so looking at this its no wonder why ive lost the weight ive completly changed my habits and ill never want to return back to that place i was..infact im so scared of going back there

Well done Elizabeth, thats fantastic and keep up the good work!!

Let me know what a typical daily menu is for you...I love to pick up new tips....

Cheers,
Thanks hon, my eating now is completely based around fruit and vegetables, pasta, rice and pulses - I eat freely of all these, and cook my main meal from scratch every day. I have practically no processed or convenience food now.

I usually have no appetite in the morning because I eat my main meal quite late in the evening, so breakfast is invariably a fruit smoothie made with a little fresh fruit juice and whatever is to hand - banana, strawberries, mango, papaya. I sometimes use frozen berries too as they're supposed to be very good for you.

Lunch will either be a portion of homemade soup, or a cous-cous salad, or a big sausage sandwich made with Linda McCartney sausages on wholegrain bread, with lots of salad. I make big pots of lovely homemade soup on days off from work, and freeze them in individual portions which are so handy for when you get in, or to take to work if you have a microwave.

My main meal will usually be something like risotto, wholewheat pasta with homemade pasta sauce, vegetable curries with wholegrain basmati rice, or a huge stir-fry.

I don't weigh or count anything, but as my fat and sugar intake are very low indeed, there isn't really any need. I eat enough to keep me satisfied and use my own judgement about that.

If I have a special occasion where food is involved, I'll have a little of whatever I fancy, and don't worry about it. I just get back to my normal eating the next day.

I 've noticed that a lot of people in Britain eat French Fries. Here in Canada fries are chips, what are french fries to you. Just curious.

They are crisps shaped like french fries made by walkers and are cooked in sunseed oil which is high in mono-unsaturates and low in saturates (0.3) per pack. These along with squares are the lowest fat crisps in saturates i've found... :)

Yeah once a month is much healthier, and seems to work for me. Previously i've got very obsessive with weighing, and if i haddn't lost in a day or so or i'd put any on, i'd get really disheartened and give up!! :rolleyes:

Good luck with getting back to teaching it sounds great, i'm doing hairdressing at college at the moment but I have also thought about maybe becomming a fitness instructor one day, that'd be one way of making sure I stay at goal!! :D

Todays Menu...

B - Oats so simple with apricots and sultanas
L - toasted sausage sarnie with brown sauce
D - 1 cheese and brocoli chicken lattice with baked Beans

Snacks - Banana, fruit and jelly pot, 2 galaxy celabrations

Drinks - slightly sparkling flavoured water

Went swimming this morning and did 60 lengths in 60 mins :p and walking the school run.

I also recieved my pedometre today, so i'm recording the distance I walk each day - and i'll use it when I run too :D

Keep smiling everyone!

breakfast - shake
lunch - turkey salad
dinner - jacket potato with chicken in low fat yogurt and side salad.

im allowed fruit 2moro so looking forward to that.

dont think i could wait a whole month to weigh myself, will try and weigh once a week instead of every few days.

r u counting the calories ur eating or just sticking to mainly healthy food?

i wear my pedometer everyday, make sure i get my 10,000 steps in before i go to bed.

Hi Jenny,

Eating food again must be so exciting for you, well done so far!
No I don't count calories, but I keep an eye on Saturated fat and sugar (esp as i'm diabetic) but on the whole I just make healthier choices, have smaller portions than before, and exercise.

Can't think at the moment so i'll post today's menu later :)
