    My name is Kim, my friends (Fi and Lou) and I are always discussing weight loss and we all have very different goals. We thought it would be a nice to have a central place where we can chat and help each other reach our long term goals.

    Personally I do not follow a set diet but seem to have settled on a calorie controlled diet.

    To get us started I thought I would post my food diary from yesterday

    B 30 g Bran flakes 100 cal
    300ml milk (allowance for day) 100 cal
    Pint water

    S 1.5L water
    2 cups tea (using milk allowance)

    L 600ml tub carrot soup (sainsburys) 120 cal
    packaged salad (sainsburys) 120 cal

    S 2 cans diet coke
    2.5L water

    D Pork Loin 105g 200 cal
    Jacket pot 200g 150cal
    Loads of veg (brocolli, cauliflower and french beans)
    Homemade ratatouee (tomato puree, onion, courgette, pepper, mushroom, carrot, chilli)

    I don't tend to count cals on veg and salad as I have a quite low cal intake apart from this.

    Pigdogs - get posting!

    mid morning banana, apple and nectarine,

    12noon - 3 rice cakes and a choc mousse (144cals)

    lunch - probably a weight watchers soup and small slice of bread (150cals)

    mid afternoon - a curly wurly (115 cals)

    tea - probably something boring like a 200cal bowl of cereal (i'm so not in a cooking mood at the moment)!!!

    Hi Alex

    Do you tend to find that by eating chocolate and mousse it stalls your weight loss? Personally I have a non processed diet all week then let my hair down one day at weekends. Do you excercise at all?

    to be honest I would go insane if I didn't have chocolate. I ride my horses every night after work for 1-2 hours, and gym once or twice a week

    OK so a typical day for me:

    Fruit and Fibre Cereal (40g) 145 cal
    Skimmed milk (100g) 34 cal

    Nectarine 66cal
    Cup of tea with dash of skimmed milk 20cal

    Pitta Bread 147cal
    1/2 tin tuna 54cal
    Salad Cream (15g) 49cal
    Salad Leaves 15cal
    Walkers Quavers 87cal (if i am having a good day i will leave these out!)

    Cup of tea with dash of skimmed milk 20cal
    Digestive Biscuit 70cal

    Tonights dinner:prawn Thai Red Curry
    King Prawns 70cal
    Red Thai Curry Paste 20cal
    1/2 tin Blue Dragon Light Coconut Milk 204cal
    White Rice (100g) 130cal

    I also drink over 2 litres of water throughout the day

    Total Calorie Intake: 1123

    I try to excersise at the gym or running on the road 4 times per week which normally burns 400 cal each time.

    I am trying to stick to a diet of less than 1200 cal per day - this is easier when i excersise as obviously can eat more food!!

    Hey Roaming Fi FI and Lou! Loving the name fi!

    Fi, I am really sorry to shatter your illusions but think you may have the wrong cals for your rice (I know that when I had 100g of dry weight rice it was about 350 cals) if you are only eating 100g cooked weight you are a saint, is that for dry weight or cooked weight?

    I always tend to measure cals from the dry weight rather than cooked as you have more control!

    Girls can't believe you both eat the f and f for brekkie is my idea of hell!

    Thanks kimber... deffinitely something to look out for - think I might reduce my rice to 75g. I LOVE F&F with extra raisins :) it has been my friend since quiting the toast - not an easy challenge though as i used to love my marmite!! :(

    well girlies
    Just back from the gym that racks me up 2 sessions this week already! yay! normally I miss a monday but must have been feeling super motivated. I am going to set up some more princess and pig dog message so we can post on other things... I think we should use this one to post our daily foods! I will post the previous days every morning......
    I am so rubbish in the morning I wouldnt have the patience to make toast, i dont have a toaster so have to use the pest grill! However I do think that if you dont have butter and just marmite or a scrape of jam / lemon curd you may be ok? Also as I love my savoury I sometimes use low fat cream cheese which is lush with the marmite!cI can hardly pour the milk in my bowl though I am usually still so mongoed!

    I will also post my days the next day, so to finish off...

    For dinner I thought I was having quorn but when i got in Chris has already made it! so it was beef but made with tinned tomatoes and he had written down the quantities that had gone in!

    In the afternoon I had some rice cakes - 109 cals
    I had 2 dessert spoons of cooked rice and 2 spoons of chilli

    45 mins fast pace walk

    Have started weighing today! and also weighed myself this morning

    My goal is to lose a stone by the Renshaw/Wan Wedding

  14. kimber

    kimber Full Member

    That is a fab goal hon! Although quite steep as 5 weeks away - I would say a loss of 10 lbs would be better for you. Do you have a certain dress in mind? Good that you have a starting point for weigh ins, will be good as I am fri and you weds!

    My goal is that I hope to lose 5 lbs before the wedding of the year!

  15. Louiseh40

    Louiseh40 Member

    I already have my dress, the one I wore for Ant and Fi's I think I can get one more wedding out of it.
    Yeah maybe it is steep but im going to try and go for it, 3lb a week! Yeah I might change my weigh in day but just really needed to get on the scales to see what I was! happy tho, I am the same as I was before Holiday! so I seem to have maintained that weight don't know if that is good or bad. Good I suppose as I haven't been dieting.

  16. kimber

    kimber Full Member

    That dress is so pretty! Yay a goal is set! Pleased you managed to get on the scales this morning, I know how daunting it can be!

    The only thing I would say about 3lb is whilst it comes off easier at the start it can be really hard to maintain as you get further on - I have my eye on you Miss H.

    Great day Lou!

    How were you feeling yesterday, hungry?

    Please could you post your fluids so I can check that you are having enough!

  21. Louiseh40

    Louiseh40 Member

    I was really hungry before I went running but when I got home I wasn't to bad

    Yesterday I had

    2.5 Pints of Water and 3 x 75cl bottles

    Today so far i have had 1 x 75cl of water

    Fab on the water front Lou! I find that if I get bored it helps to switch to fizzy water for a L a day!

    I am pleased you are not feeling hungry but would say carrot sticks, peppers and celery are always the best snack when hungry as really fill me up!
