    Ok it was my first day on the RC Inch L Plan today. I changed the menus around a little, this is what i have had for day 1:

    Breakfast= Yellow portion of Special K with skimmed milk from allowance.

    Powersnack= 12 grapes

    Lunch= Salad (lettuce, cu, toms, beetroot) with small serving of prawns.

    Powersnack= 2 satsumas

    Dinner= ww lasagne (under 400 cals and less than 5% fat), steamed vegatables and muller light yog.

    drinks= diet coke, water, coffee.

    I also did an hour workout at the gym today.

    Does this seem ok for my first day? Just a bit worried as adapting things from the green book!

    Ta! :rolleyes:

    2nd day-Thursday

    Ok 2nd day today:

    Breakfast= yellow pot of museli and skimmed milk.

    powersnack= 12 grapes

    Lunch= 1 wholemeal pitta bread, lettuce, cucumber and small tin of WW coronation tuna. 3 cherry toms.

    no powersnack pm

    Dinner= ww meal-under 400 cal and 5% fat and mixed salad. fat free low calorie jelly.

    drinks= coffee, diet coke, sugar free lemon squash.

    exercise= 50 lengths swimming :)

    feeling really full after dinner tonight-think i did too big a salad! think im gonna buy a smaller plate for me to have dinner on to help control my portion sizes.

    the only thing thats letting me down is that i ate a few cherry toms and olives whilst preparing my salad-didnt realise they had calories too! will be more careful of that now!

    really hope this is gonna work. my other half wanted to take me out for dinner tom night but i have told him no i cnt as need to control what i eat :( worried about getting through the weekend now! :wave_cry:

    Looks as though you are doing well so far, don't worry too much about the cherry tomatoes and the olives, at least they were healthy options!

    yeh i jus saw that they had calories too!hehe!

    Ok day 3 was:

    Breakfast= 1 weetabix, milk and sliced banana

    Lunch= prawn salad

    Dinner= a bit strange as was out- in Starbucks and i was VERY controlled and just had celery, carrot and humous which was def under 400 cals and less than 5% fat.

    Powersnacks= 12 grapes (which i saved to eat in the cinema! how good am i?!haha!)
    100g pinapple

    Exercise= 1 hr workout at gym including 20 mins on bike, 15 mins on x trainer, 15 mins on treadmill and some situps.

    was very pleased with myself today as we went into starbucks and all i had was a black coffee and my celery and carrot pot with humus! And then went to the cinema and i saved my 12 grapes powersnack in the morn and had them while i was watching the film! And then to top it off afterwards my bf decided he wanted a burger from Macdonalds! So i went in with him, ordered nothing and watched him eat his big Mac meal! Very chuffed with myself! Bring on the weekend! :)

    think you did really well to lose 4 pounds, so WELL DONE!!!!!
    glad to see you treated yourself to a trifle after weigh in, doesn't actually look as though you had your whole calorie alowance yesterday any way probably!
    Have another good week!

    Have to say that i agree with you, sticking to diet is much easier during the week, too many distractions at the weekend!
    Good luck for your weigh in tomorrow night!
