    Hey all...started Xenical today with a weight of 75.7kg (aiming to be 60kg by June 18th).

    I started off the morning with a bowl of Special K and semi-skimmed milk and a cup of tea (i will buy skimmed milk for tomorrow i promise :eek:).
    Then I had a rasberry yoghurt as a snack and then a handful of brown pasta with tomato salca and natural yoghurt and a nectarine.
    For my dinner I am planning to have a jacket potato with some low fat cheese spread and bbq sauce and salad.

    How does this sound?

    Does anyone know the link for any good recipes?

    Hello Sarah! Greetings from another Sarah also having a connection to Istanbul. I have been travelling out there for over 30 years and have a flat in Uskudar. Where are you and why are you out there? Your diet doesn't sound very turkish btw! I would be interested to hear how you are finding living out there etc.

    I dont think thats too much water, especially when your in a hot place. you have to make sure you dont get dehydrated!! And it all helps with the weight loss!! A few snacks inbetween would be fine though, some fruit or yogurt or even a cereal bar, just to keep you metabolism going!! Good luck with your weight loss journey!!

    I wish I loved water, i was naughty today and had a glass of coke as we had a party for the kids but i resists all other crisps and cakes which i am sooo proud of myself for.
    Here is my food today:

    Special K with skimmed milk
    Cup of tea
    Plastic cup of coke (ooooooops)
    Spinach and yoghurt
    Nectarine
    Cup of tea
    Wholemeal wrap with chicken, BBQ sauce and lettuce and if i am hungry later i will drink water. that is it. and i will be good and exercise tonight i promise..

    Jessica i have chicken every single day, i would be lost without it...and also cups of tea!

    sarah! i live in florya near attaturk airport...to be honest it is very hard to live here, people are not friendly and you get constantly stared at although I love the city in the summer and think there is nowhere else like it. I am living here with my turkish boyfriend and teach english here, i get really home sick at times and really miss the food! i hate salad and i miss good old fashioned weight watches ready meals..when are you next over? we should meet up

    İ have been cheating actually and shouldnt weight myself until Wednesday...İm a serial weigher as well hehe!
    İ had a boiled egg...thank you for the advice, İ think it is all about experimenting maybe and praying nothing goes wrong...ive been so good and havent eaten anything bad since wednesday even though my friends and my boyfriend have been tempting me with biscuits which does not help! im in the zone and very happy to be here
    thank you for the support :D

    I am the same, i cant stop weighing myself.. i know its not good, but i find it encourages me!! My husband tries tempting me with stuff too, offers me choccy bars and nuts. But i have been really good, like you i am feeling like i am in the zone at the moment, although had a slip up yesterday, but i havent let it get me down which i normally would!! Thanks for your support too, i am always here if you need a chat :)
