    Hi, I'm new to the forum, but have been trying to loose weight through a better diet for a few years. I've found a big improvement to my health for changing my diet and have lost weight, it's just been very slow. I started off at 11st 4lbs and am currently 9st 3lbs. I would like to loose another stone I think, but it depends more on how my clothes look on than what I weigh.
    I'll try to post my food for each day, I'm trying to stick to around 1200 cals, but I'm not counting them religiously.

    Thanks. Yes I do, to save money and like I said before, I hate waste. I can't stand throwing out food, so I plan my weekly shop really carefully.

    Wow rooie! I think you need to be my nutritionist! If you don't mind me asking, how much does this cost you each week? Does it take you a lot of time to prepare?

    Hi, thanks. Well I spend between about £40-£70 a week, but that does include household and pet stuff and that is for two people. I also shop online, see what is on offer and plan my meals around that. Sometimes it does take time to prepare, but luckily I love cooking! If you would like any of the recipes just let me know!
