Yesterday, I ate 2 slices of cheese at 1pm and then haddock & chips with tartar sauce and a dollop of ketchup at 5pm, a rare treat. Last time was 24 April!

I didn't eat all the chips and Mr AG finished most reheated for his lunch. I had a few chips at 1pm and then an 3 egg omlette at 3.10pm after cleaning the guest suite. I may eat again later or not, depending on how I feel.

Yesterday, I cleaned the airbnb and then had local lamb roast - including lots of veggies and a few potatoes - after 2pm. In the evening, I ate again - lamb, veggies and shirataki noodles - but only ate half of it.

I've shed 1.8lbs this week which takes me to the milestone of over that 10% of starting weight (10.23% precisely) which is meant to have a real impact on health. The loss is slowing down - just 4.4lbs the last 4 weeks.

So 32.6lbs lost in 119 days - 2 stone 4.6lbs in 4 months - 286lbs. A bit less achey most of the time but I rIcked my back 3 days ago so not enjoying easier movement at the mo. The lymph on my left leg isn't clearing so I'll book in to see my GP.

My trews are loose at the waist but not the calf. They are threadbare at the thigh rub! One pair has already been retired. My tunic tops are still OK but 2 need replacing and another 2 are also very tired so I will need some new clothes. The first new clothes in maybe 2 or 3 years. The charity shops here aren't great so I will probably order some new tops on line and replace my jeans with the same style one size down. Annoyingly, I think 2 sizes down will be too tight, and I can't yet wear the clothes I have stored away. I do have one pair of smartish trousers I will be able to wear again. I'll delay the jeans ordering to just before I go to Manchester, earler if the thighs go!

22 Mondays until Xmas - so sustaining 1lb a week will get me over 50lbs lost by Xmas. If I can do 1.5lbs, that would double my weight loss this year - 33lbs or 2 stone 5lbs in the next 5 months would take me to 4 stone 9.6lbs shed, down to a healthier 18 stone something, nearly half way to goal.

I have some travel - to Manchester via London next month. I wIll be in a timetabled environment and won't be able to drink and eat at will. So I will need to sort out a routine that works while staying away. Maybe there wll be some good charity shops in central Manchester - if Covid hasn't shut everything down by then.

This is really my food diary - so I will copy and post my clothes info into my WeMITT blog, which is my record of weight loss & feelings. I may move it to the Keto forum sometme. https://www.minimins.com/threads/get-to-slinky-again-and-staying-there.368008/

The overnight woosh - 1.6lbs down - despite a wierd day yesterday with a 3 egg mayo salad, a couple of slices of lamb and some Lidl mint choc protein ice cream. Very hot - and my husband was ill with breathing dfficulties so I dialed 999 and he's been admitted for tests and treatment. My new debit card didn't work - so am waiting for another new one - so no clothes ordering today!

Today, I have the new cleaner coming as I was supposed to be away in Glasgow this week. That's good as I'll get on with other work around the house/garden.

More later.

This thread is my food thread. I set it up for daily tracking - and have been a bit sporadic. I also have my slinky thread moore about tracking prgress and thinking. So here's my update today - weigh in day - 1.8lbs down this week. It's all good.


Lunch - egg mayo salad. I felt virtuous as I also popped a bit of vinegar in and descaled my egg boiler after I'd cooked the eggs. The electric egg boiler was an impulse buy at Lidl. It makes hard boiled eggs very quick and easy. They pee well and I don't have a setamed up kiitchen and pots of boiling water to drain. I'd definitely replace it if it stopped working.

I often make egg mayo - which also makes a good sandwch fillng for Mr AG. I have my mum's egg slicer - and slice the eggs one way then the cross way, which makes a good chopped up mix for my salads. I reckon the egg slicer (just a white plastic bottom with a hinged wire frame that cuts through the egg) must be 40 or 50 years old! It stll works fine.

Supper - cod mornay broccolli and caulflower and some proten icecream. A bit higher carb than usual - probably 50g (maybe more) but probably still low carb enough not to peak the insulin response.
