    We go on hols in just over 8 weeks time and am determined to look "decent" in the photos and not be the person I've become hiding away from photos / video footage as I hate what I see. I have 2 young daughters (7 months and 2.7 years) and I WANT to have photos of us together (ok with the hubby too!) so here goes.
    Have lost about a stone on Dukan but got very frustrated with weight jumping about all over the place so started Atkins today on induction. Not a great day for eating need to get more organised!
    Induction
    B - 2 x scrambled egg (no milk or butter), mini babybel light
    L - grilled chicken breast, tomato slices, grated carrot, mayo
    D - tuna in brine, lettuce, cucumber, mayo, small amount cheese
    Exercise - swim with girls, 1hr walk, wii fit

    Don't I know it! I spent 30 years looking at the calories, I had never looked at a carb in my life. Now I know the carb value of weird things, lol. I must have looked at every type of pesto to get the lowest. Sometimes it takes me forever to do my shopping. I don't mind at all though, it's worth every minute! :D

    Hi Jim - I used less than 20g of paste which was around 4g of carbs but literally it was made of salt so didn't eat it all and won't be eating it again.
    On an even worse note bought some sausages yesterday and didn't notice the labelling on the front was only for sugar not for carbs so thinking I was doing well 1.4g for 2 sausages it was only that for sugar and carbs was 12g for 2 sausages!! Luckily I'd only eaten 1 so binned the other and will check more carefully - it's a minefield out there! Will try Lidl though for your recommended sausages!
    Thanks for keeping an eye on me - someone has to!! ;)

    Know what you mean .... difficult to peruse every label with a 2 year old and 7 month old in the trolley and very laborious on-line but will be more careful! x
