Thought I'd say hi, I am enjoying reading your diary, as although I am not veggie, I often have several veggie days a week, and I love getting new ideas!

What did you think of the watercress/goats cheese soup you had the other day? I remember the recipe as it looked like a good one...

Wow Lydia love your thread. I'm thinking of going to SW from CD and i'm too a veggie. I will keep watching.
I take it you have lost 3.5lb in your first week, well done.:D

Thanks, I can highly recommend SW its great for veggies. No 3.5lbs is what I have lost in total so far, not been doing SW that long and have gained 2lbs last week (too much chocolate and an evil quiche that was 40 syns a slice!!!) but I'm back on track this week and hoping to get rid of those 2lbs! I don't tend to me a high weight loser due to a thyroid problem, but I am more successful on SW than I was on WW which is encouraging for me.

Well on the surface it seemed not too bad!! It was a goats cheese and tomato quiche, the filling had quark in, so far so good, the pastry was made from wholegrain spelt flour and walnuts - stupidly I was still thinking "no too bad" at this stage, then I worked out the syns, 40 per slice!!!!!!!!! Well I'd gone to the effort to make it so I had to eat it didn't I - two slices of it! LOL!! It was lovely though, but definintely a post goal weight indulgence!!!
