    Hehe, well I'm a vegeterian, so I only do green days. So advice on how to make vegeterian food is always welcome...
    I feel alot more healthier in just my first week, I'm not use to eating so many vegetables (ironic because I'm a vegeterian, I used to eat lots of fruit instead), so I feel more balanced.
    How's everyone else doing this week?

    Hi....I haven't joined the group meetings - am an online member (body optimise)....my hubby works shifts so couldn't commit to a set class every week and that would just end up being an excuse to not go so thought online would be better!!! I am due to weigh in on thursday online too....lets hope we both do well....

    I've found it good so far.....I enjoy fruit and veg so at least thats not a struggle....I find my picking times are in the evening in front of the tv but have been saving one of my healthy extras so I can have oats-so-simple and a banana in the evening if i get really desperate....must be better than scoffing a bar of choc!!

    I think the other hard thing for me is trying to work out what I'm going to cook that the whole family will eat without turning their noses up at it...going to try the kids on quorn this week and see how they find it (though I'm not going to tell them its not meat!!!)

    Thanks Keshia!

    Marie - the quorn in the orange bag is best for that, the Linda McCartney mince meat stuff I have found to be a little synthetic tasting!
    I've found my syns to be quite useful for the odd bar of chocolate, and have managed to persuade my better half (who is as skinny as a rake!) to finish off chocolate bars for me when I've worried about going over :)
    I'm lucky that I don't really have to cook for anyone else but me really, I just give my other half whatever i'm eating and he's happy, or he sorts himself out :)
    Well Good luck on Thursday, I can't believe we're both on the same day!
    Will let you know how I do, and you better let me know how you do!
    :)

    Hey Loopylou, congrats on your first loss! I agree, look at the recipies! There's so many. I plan my meals roughly the night before so I don't have to eat the same things over.
    Also when I overcook (always) I stick it in the freezer so I can have some the next week (learnt this tip so I didn't have to throw food away, suggested by my mum :) )
    Good luck on next week and let us know how you're doing!

    Thanks to everyone for all the positive comments :)
