Monday 1st March.

Lost 1.8lbs this week :)

Breakie - 1 weetabix, blueberries, splenda & skimmed milk.

Lunch - 6" subway sub, meatball marinara with grated cheese, red onion & mayo. It's becoming a bit of a habit to have a cheeky lunch out on a monday (after I've been weighed ;)) ... I'm paying the price for this one though I'm feeling quite 'off' .. that'll larn me ;) xx

Edit later for rest of day. I'm not having any alcohol today though (don't faint :))

Edit - Tea - a John West sachet of tuna fillets with thai sweet red chili and stir fry.

I'll have something else later possibly mango, kiwi & vlf from frais or maybe a bar - shapers, shape or eat natural. My daughter's taking the laptop to work tonight so can't leave it till later till I know. (edit - had shapers bar)

I'm drinking fizzy water - enjoying it too even if it is making me feel a little bloated :eek: xx

I've been in and out and running around since 6.30 this morning, grabbing 'bits' when I can. Not wonderful but not toooooo bad all in all considering.
I'm about to spoil that though because my good intentions not to have a drink again tonight are about to go out of the window .... I'm knackered and feel I've earned a couple v&cs ...... any excuse ;) :p xx

Oooops ... 'not too bad' is going out the window as well - weightwatchers tortilla chips and a cheese string

sounds like you do what I like to do when I can, go for a mooch and treat myself to nice coffee and watch the world go by. Did you buy anything?


maintaining since June'09
Mmmmm - yeah - a few things for my sister (who's getting married in Gretna Green on 16th ... 3rd time lucky hopefully!) but not much really ... xx

ANd yet again nothing at my Mum's! - Don't tell me I'm finally breaking that habit!!! May have had more to do with the fact I knew I'd be getting weighed today. This also made me limit my breakie to 1 weetabix, blueberries etc and NOTHING else before I went to bed :):)

Weighed when I got up and had lost 1lb :):)

Then had piece of toast with egg&bacon sandwich filler on half & phili lite on the other half (coz I had to go out & didn't want to go on an empty stomach ... plus I was hungry! :))

V&Cs tonight & sure I'll have something else to eat so will edit later. xx

Tea - Morrocan chicken & chick pea tagine with lemon & coriander cous cous
