Haha that's crazy, I would have been so angry at the seagull lol. To be fair I'm exactly the same, seaside doughnuts are so much tastier, and I never think to buy doughnuts from other shops. I think it's because they're set out so nicely with the fresh bread, croissants and cookies etc, and you can smell it as soon as you walk into Lidl. Clever marketing to keep it all right next to the entrance! x

Leigh 😂 one took my mums fish once of her tray. We had just paid and was tryin to find a bench haha was funny.

Good idea I like it.

I don’t eat after my tea anyway haven’t done since I started this diet. I think because survive on 700 all day I’m grateful to get 800 at tea time and I’m full

I usually try to save the majority of my calories for the evenings too - one of the reasons I love calorie counting - you can still have whatever snacks or some wine you want as long as you have calories spare x

Lol you girls are funny.

I'll definitely brush my teeth after my chocolate lol.

I grate my big slab cheese on weighing scales hun, it's more cost effective than sliced, now and then an extra small chunk breaks off that I count but feels like a treat lol, I need to buy a bigger slab, we've run out sooner than I had hoped. I'm monthly shopping with Iceland to have it delivered, so getting an idea of how much I need for the month, this way, my weekly top up of fresh stuff doesn't take too long to do and think I'm saving quite a bit of money too as not shopping in Sainsbury's much so missing those offers you see but actually don't need lol.

Icelands great for food shopping too. I've got a couple of slimming world meals in the freezer from when I gave that another go a few weeks ago (and quickly got fed up)... they're not too bad calorie wise but I find the meals can be a bit hit or miss so not sure if to waste my calories on them x

I had them too, it's not OK if you want a night off cooking! Save them, I'm sure you'll have one of those days lol.

I'm going to be treating myself to some pies next month to have when kids with their dad, plus when I start going to the gym, they'll be nice and filling!!

I've heard the lasagne one is ok? I've got that and two noodle ones but the noodle ones look quite bland.

I love the Greggs range in there haha x

I get sliced , triangles and grated haha. The triangles usually last all month tho if get a big pack. Hubby takes cheese sandwhich to Work he’s fussy so suits him so we get through a lot of cheese.

The slimming world chicken tikka is nice Cnt remeber how many calories it is tho prob make your own for same amount of cals . I used to find them a Rip of aswell like you say some aren’t that nice .

Shayne really wants me to make lasagne so I'm going to start making it twice a month, annoying thing Angel doesn't like it, so might end up making her pasta and Shayne hates bolognese which is same as what I put in lasagne, honestly, I'll be glad when I only have myself to please haha.

I will likely get some chicken pies and cottage pie if I don't just make an effort to make myself lol
