Extra Easy Newbie here, enjoying my Magic Porridge!

#1
Just wanted to say that I am so pleased that I found your site.

Had frozen grapes last night and am now enjoying a bowl of Magic Porridge with a banana. Love both. I would have never thought of these ideas on my own so thank you MiniMins!:clap: Fab ideas so far.

My dd's had some magic porridge before school this morning ( with full fat yoghurt) and loved it! Result! So much nicer than slimey grey goop. I used the old fashioned oats (big flakes) it was nice and chewy, just lovely.

I have been doing Extra Easy for 5 days and must say that even though I have been being really good I haven't lost yet. Not even a pound. I have been loading my plate with veggies etc.

I am abit dissappointed but all in all I am ok with it. This is a way of eating for life, and my family is benefitting from the meals this week so it is all good. I think Extra Easy is best for the long haul and fitting in with the whole family.
DH only just found out we were on SW. He didn't have a clue until last night he mentioned what lovely meals I have been making this week. I nearly choked! So funny. I love SW!

Another funny was when I had a spaghetti squash explode in the oven last night. It even blew the door open! Very dangerous actually, I came on this morning to look up the proper way to cook them. lol It was lovely by the way. I scraped up the bits off of the oven that were clean.

off to google spaghetti squash.
Speak soon.:)

Spaghetti Squash???? Do tell - I am intrigued now :D

Really glad your enjoying your new eating style. I love it in our house - as does hubby & our children (children most of the time anyway, lol)

As for your WI - are you doing SW from home then?? Maybe the best thing to do would be set a day & time for your WI's, that way you will be getting a more accurate WI :)

I am in Canada :) I am signed up with BodyOptimise which is slimming world online. I used to live in England and did SW then. I really missed it and found out that you could do it online so I signed up.

My first weigh in is on Friday. I will do it at the same time every Friday, good plan.

I like Extra Easy it is a realistic way of eating especially with a family but I do feel that it is going to be a slower loss. :sigh:

A spaghetti squash looks like a butternut squash but inside it is full of stringy bits. It is super good for you and you can have it with bolognese/chilli type sauces instead of spaghetti. We just had it as a side veg last night and it was lovely. I have also had parmesan cheese (as a HE) and salt & pepper with it and this is good too.

I am a little scared of cooking it again as it did blow my oven door right open. And send hot shred of squash everywhere. I dread to think what could have happened it my children where nearby or if it decided to explode when I was taking it out. Scarey! I tried to poke holes in it before cooking but it was solid. I see now that some people cut them in half before roasting. Maybe I will have to get DH to go at it with an ax!

Needless to say, all night DH was doing Micheal Caine impressions about blowing bloody doors off. :) So predictable.

Although we weigh in every week, it is best to take your total weight loss over a month, because i think our bodies change from week to week, due to water, exercise etc.
Personally i am happy with 5 - 7lbs a month

I never change until the 6th day, then I suddenly lose lbs, it's weird! LOL.

Magic porridge is 28g porridge oats (HEb) mixed into a mullerlight yoghurt, then left in fridge overnight. It's really nice, you can it eat warm if you heat it carefully in microwave but I like it cold. Tastes lovely with all different flavours, the fruity ones and the vanilla, toffee, etc. I often add some fruit to it as well in the morning, makes a really filling breakfast.
