Hi Gemstone1981,

Looks good your food diary, I have just started to keep one too I am hopeing it will keep me on track. Have you been having a 1/3 free with your meals.
Why thank ye, I'm still getting to grips with EE days so don't do many of them TBH - give me good old Green and Red and I'm a happy bunny.... most of what I have in the way of veg etc are free foods and usually at lunch I have a side salad too (I left it at home today), fingers crossed this gives me the push I need to start shifting the lbs.

I know does take a while to get your head round EE when you have been used to doing Red and Green, I do a mixture now of all days, I always plan my meals at the end of week just before I go shopping.

Hi Donnajt.... thanks v.much, I really love to cook, so I try to come up with something different and nice every day.... I don't want to loose weight so much as fit into a size.... a nice cozy 12 will do me, or maybe a 10 if it looks ok - so what ever weight I happen to get to if I'm the size I want to be, well that's just fine ;)... WI is on Wednesday nights, so fingers crossed I'll have a good loss this week.

Ooookkkk so onto the diary... today I am super happy as I got to use my new thermal bento box which I had sent over from the US....
