    Feeling good today, lost 2lbs since yesterday, didn't even feel that hungry to be honest, just stopped my snacks like i know i should have done before, and measuring how much i eat.

    you loose a lot at the start then it slows right down, but at least i lost something.

    HOORAY! :p

    Stick with it Mindy. Just under 5 weeks ago the doc said I needed to lose 7 stones. I could hardly believe it but I actually weighed 17 stones!!! Undaunted I bought a set of scales and a notebook and vowed to change my ways. I have never eaten junk and always eats loads of fruit and veg etc. but I DO know that I have trouble with portion sizes. I still eat the same foods as before, but just less of one thing and more of another, so to speak. Typically a day's food is this. Breakfast: 2 Shredded Wheat with Choc Soya Milk (delic!!). Lunch at work: Tesco Healthy Veg Cupasoup, large homemade fruit salad in apple juice, 2 x Ryvita Muesli crispbreads. Dinner: Homemade Quorn Sweet n Sour (ALL store cupboard ingredients, healthy and quick), a fist sized amount of Tesco quick cook brown rice and a large heap of (frozen) mixed veg, with a blackcurrant sugar free jelly + frozen raspberries or a yogurt or a couple of good quality chocolates for dessert. Straight after eating that lot we take Diesel, our Black Lab, for a brisk walk around our village for an hour. After doing this for a month I have lost over a stone and look forward to losing the next one. A balance of good healthy food in the right proportions (fist sized carb / weetabix sized protein / unlimited veg) and exercise that I enjoy is working well for me. And on Fri / Sat nights I am drinking wine as though it has gone out of fashion!! Think positive, look forward to mealtimes, drink loads of water and chew, chew, chew – if you can prepare and cook it yourself, all the better. You'll lose it in no time at all.
