    This is what i ate in past 24 hrs :eek:

    cous cous, spinach & kidney beans & boiled egg
    ff yogurt

    muller x4
    tangerines x8
    banana x1

    2 egg omelette spinach and mushroom wth fry light

    quorn chilli with kid beans / borlotti beans - fry light

    2 slice bread Hex with 1.5 syn cheese & cucumber

    milk 350ml skimmed milk Hex

    tricky as I work nights to stick to three meals a day!

    i seriously feel like i'm eating far too much. I lost 1kg after week one, but think it may just be i got weighed on different scales.. not convinced this is working for me :cry:

    My mum felt the same way, she felt guilty about eating free foods as she thought she was eating way too much, and even our consultant said that she wasn't eating enough, and now she's lost over a stone and a half and nearly to her 9.5stone target. I've had weeks where I've turned up to group feeling absolutely bloated and then to find out that I've lost 6lb :/
    I thought that there must be something wrong with the scales and instead of being overjoyed and proud of myself for losing the weight I snacked and comfort ate :/ which I don't really understood why lol
    Stick at it, it's weird the way it works, but it definitely does work, think positive :)

    OMG! I thought I was over eating but no way do I eat that amount ;0)

    Yesterday I had :

    Breakfast : Muller and banana for and a Alpen Light (half Hex B)
    Lunch : Bowl of salad and half a hot chicken shredded. some honey and mustard dressing (1.5 syns)
    Snack : Fun Size Twix (6 syns) + other Alpen Light (Half Hex B)
    Dinner : Shepherds Pie with 28g Cheese (Hex A) with beansprouts and baked beans. Followed by a banana
    Drank approx 2.5 litres of various non alcoholic liquids.

    Mostly I am full, but I certainly need the Twix of some Walkers Lites in the afternoon to tide me over. Salad and fruit wears off quiet quickly and i do find myself looking to nibble mid afternoon.

    As long as you're sticking to the rules & eating when you're hungry then you're fine! Sticking to three meals is almost impossible when you're on night shift so just relax and enjoy your new way of eating.

    Thanks, am definitely sticking to the rules it becomes a bit of an obsession!....guess nights have had a lot to do with weight gain in the first place, eating the wrong things due to lack of thought and planning..bought some scales today so will be using same scales throughout.
