Thanks :) Today is another day (and a Monday at that)

The scales this morning were 1lb up so hopefully I can have a good week - pleading for it to be 3lbs! The good thing is that we don't have any food related plans for just less than two weeks so no reason not to be able to do well.

Really well. Went out partying at the weekend and had a day off plan yesterday but only gained half a pound. Back on it today :)

Made a lentil curry type of thing for dinner. The recipe said it was 500 calories but I skipped the cream, rice and adjusted a few other things so should have been ok. Left wanting food (nothing new there) as the portion was quite small. Missing my old Cambridge step 2 mushroom pasta recipe - I can't make it as easily here as I used to go get one of the fresh pasta packs from Lidl (as it was exactly the right weight for the step). And the quorn chili - searched high and low for quorn mince but again - no luck.

Trying to come up with things to keep us motivated. I want to make meatballs and sauce one night this week (no pasta of course). I have some avocados so when they are ripe I will make some wrap free fijitas. What else....? Hmmm.....I need to use the mushrooms and beansprouts so stir fry for dinner tomorrow most likely.

Spend my whole time thinking about food. Looking forward to weighing myself tomorrow *fingers crossed for a good one*

I was quite naughty today and didn't have a shake at all. I just lost track of time....I didn't even notice it was 4pm...then decided not to have one because I wasn't hungry yet. Of course that was a mistake because I ended up leaving later than planned and got home starving!

Weigh in was the same as it has been all week just in the 12s.

Have some interview prep to do for tomorrow but not feeling motivated. Sleepy and disappointed with just some meat and veggies for dinner. I WANT CARBS! I actually google things like pasta bake - like food porn. Been good today just wishing I wasn't.

I feel your pain. I seem to be going through the same at the moment. You just have to hold on and and ride it out (I'm not sure whether that is advice to you or me)

So yesterday was a really really good day from a non-diet perspective....

Started off at 12 stone 13 lbs - yay! Then had a LONG (2.5 hour) interview in the morning. Got to the office in the afternoon to find an email asking me back for the final interview phase (half a day pair programming - but my agent said that is a formality to check for personality clashes). THEN I got a call to say a job I have been trying to get (but no HR approval) had finally been confirmed and can I start in two weeks. EXCITING! I was going to interviews so as not to put all my eggs in the one basket. So yeah....lots of exciting things happening!

Sooooo....of course I wanted to celebrate and did so with 100g of pasta! Oh well....I don't feel so terrible about that! Maybe I should as otherwise I would be losing it faster :p
