    Thanks for the words of encouragement. I done the diet years ago but seen this easy peasy diet instead of green/red days etc. Sounds good.

    Hey newbies!
    the first, most important step is deciding you want to lose weight.

    Hiya All. Well i made it to my first weigh in last night. After i had picked myself up from the weight on the scales i was fine. The group are very friendly and dont see any issues.
    So i just need to get my head round these plans...........need to read my books.
    I have had some porridge and apple and 1 litre of water so far. I have a chicken salad with toms and cucumber with a little coleslaw and muller light. Jacket potato for tea with baked beans. I also have some apples, banana, satsumas, rashberries and strawberries at my desk!!! lol
    Anyway not really sure what food plan i am on today??
    I am feeling very determined though!!!!
    I am off to get my 2nd Litre of water..............
    Catch you all later.

    Paul

    Hiya, Thanks for your reply. I haven`t made my mind up yet on a target weight. Think i will concentrate on my Target 10 thing first then have a rethink. Good luck with your water intake.

    Hi Paul,

    Well done in getting to class and it wont be long before you get your head round the plans.

    Sometimes I haven't decided what day I'm on until tea time as I've had free on both and HEB throughout the day so it leaves me free to have a choice later in the day.

    I tend to have quorn spag bol and quorn chilli in the freezer that I've made in a batch so that when I come in from work, if I'm not in the mood, its easy just to put on a pan of rice or pasta and defrost the portion of sauce. That with some veggies makes for a nice easy dinner.

    Good luck for your first week xx
