    Hey Foodfairy,

    That looks lush!

    About whether it's "ok" or not, it's hard to tell! Lunch certainly looks fine. You might find you snack less if you have something a bit more filling though, maybe with a bit more protein. Like a salad with lots of tuna or something.

    How big were the French Fries - did they come with nutritional info? Was the casserole very rich? Was the mashed potato made with butter/cream? Ready meals, or pub casserples, are likely to be quite high in calories, compared to what you'd make at home.

    And of course, what kind of exercise did you do, and for how long?

    Try to keep a very detailed log of your food and exercise; as you become more intuitive about nutrition, you may be able to be less rigid.

    Sorry not to be more helpful!

    Hi and thank you for the reply and advice, its very welcome!

    Yea I made the casserole myself and I always mash potatoes with butter and milk lol but not much. The exercise I do is waking home from work which takes an hour and I do it briskly even in the rain today! x

    I think that all looks good. Was it French Fries the crisps? If so, I love them! Think they're only about 100 cals a bag.

    I think exercising is a really great way to kick the chocolate addiction. I was really addicted to it too, eating like 100g every day, but now that I try to do some exercise every day, it feels like such a waste!

    And after a week of having no chocolate, you don't crave it anymore. I found that particularly any really strenuous exercise like running actually curbs my appetite, weirdly (not complaining, though!).

    I'm sure you can do it! All your food looks pretty good, and it's impressive that you're walking home from work each day.

    :)

    saturday and sunday

    got a bit drunk yesterday oopsy haha! they were doing free wine tasting in the supermarket and i'd have been a fool to pass that up! had about 1/4 of a bottle in total consisting of different wines and then went and bought a bottle of wine too which i drank when i got home :7834:

    i ordered pizza too - and chips :doh: but i only had half of each so at least i was a bit good :p

    today i didnt eat breakfast tut tut but my head was a bit hurty and all i wanted was 2 cups of tea. we all went out for sunday lunch and i had chicken with stuffing, boiled new potatoes, 2 roast potatoes, 1/2 yorkie pud, steamed red cabbage, carrots and broccolli with not too much gravy.

    then i had strawberry cheesecake with icecream for dessert and a lattee. had 2 pink wafers a bit later with a cuppa when we got home and i have a slice of banana cake waiting for me this evening. so this weekend has been a bit pants dietwise but i still lost 1lb when i got weighed this morning :clap:
