    I think today went well. I was so tempted by having a sneaky vodka and coke in the pub and when we went to the kebab place afterwards I felt like I was melting, my stomach growling so much, serves me right for having such an early tea. Good day. I've had no side effects or indication that the tablets have began working, but I can't expect a miracle, considering this is only my second day on them.

    I think I definitely overdid my tea tonight, it was a new recipe which turned out amazing. I've just had my stomach grumbling most of the day so when it came to my last (yummy) meal I scoffed down 2 helping, and then was snacking on the new potatoes. I don't think I've done that bad today, I know I can definitely be worse, but I still feel a little guilty for having seconds and then snacking on leftover potatoes. Hope the exercise will make up for it. I suppose if I'm still grumbling tomorrow I'll add a snack in after breakfast to stop me from feeling quite so hungry during the evening.

    Well, it wasn't a particularly bad day for eating. I thought I'd be okay with the cheese in my jacket potato as it was reduced fat but apparently not. I don't even want to go too far into that, but I now have an idea of the side effects. Not amazing with the exercise but I did do 7 hours of work, even if it's not strenuous I am up and moving around.

    Xenical until March 2011 then Weight Watchers, now Exante (from 4/9/11)
    Hello...and welcome :)
    I was just reading through your lunch for yesterday, and I must admit, I did think :eek:
    Without knowing exactly what you ate, I would hazard a guess that not just the cheese, but the vegetable oil, light spread, and coleslaw were all out of the Xenical guidelines.
    If you have a look at the packaging, each item should contain no more than 5g of fat per 100g of food, and you should have no more than 15g of fat in each meal.
    I know it's easy with things like oil and low-fat spread to think it'll be OK if you're only having a little bit, but it's not just the amount of fat you're eating, it's about the concentration of fat in each item too (that's why it's important to look at the per 100g total).

    To be honest, I'm no angel, and I do occasionally have low-fat coleslaw, or the odd scraping of low fat spread, but it's about working out what you can get away with, and not having it all in the same meal!

    I hope that doesn't come accross as critical, I just wouldn't want you experiencing any more nasty side effects!
    By the way, have you tried Fry Light as an alternative to oil? I don't use oil at all for cooking now I've got used to using that. It's great to spray onto wedges before you bake them :)

    Good luck with your weight-loss journey!

    Hey there Alex,
    In retrospect it wasn't the best idea, I guess... I was cooking round someone else's house and I used what I could (greedy, hehe). All new to me, trial and error. Thanks for taking an interest, it's good to hear feedback. Trying to find a new way of eating that I can live with for the rest of my life, and crunchy jacket potato skin is a must.
    I actually just topped up my supply of spray oil today... and bought some Quark. Yippee.
    Good luck with your journey too.

    Today, technically I wasn't even on xenical because :copon:I forgot to take my tablets... I only remembered after I was on my way to work, totally forgot them at breakfast. Silly me.

    Saturday 17th July 2010

    Breakfast
    New York Style Cheesecake Yogurt
    Lunch
    Light Choices Creamy Mushroom Pasta
    Snack
    8 Grapes
    1 Packet of Light Choices Potato Thins
    Tea
    Bachelors Beanfeast Bolognese with organic wholewheat spaghetti (I added chopped tomatoes to the bolognese and peas and sweetcorn to the spaghetti)

    Exercise
    45 Min. Walk - Moderate Pace (Afternoon)
    (Work - general)

    Review
    Well, except for totally missing the tablets, it wasn't bad. I felt a bit guilty and slightly apprehensive over my side effects so I was extra good. I wasn't really that hungry until 9pm when I had the potato thins because I was waiting for my partner to get home to have the bolognese with. Everything went well.

    Lunch
    2 Light Choices Prawn Mayo Prepacked Sandwiches
    Tea
    Harvester :)() Salad Bar - had lots of lettuce, sweetcorn, carrots, but did also have some potato salad from there, the honey and mustard dressing, low fat mayo and a dashing of 1000 island dressing. While everone else had dessert, I had a dry brown roll from the salad bar. No alcohol, stuck to Pepsi Max.
    Dessert
    WW caramel shortbread... millionaires shortbread stuff.

    Exercise
    30 Min. Walk - Slow (Morning)
    30 Min. playing in the park after going to Harvester, found this park which has like a little gym in it, with steppers and ab twisters and some weight type exercises. Really enjoyed it.

    Review
    Well, it could have been worse. At least I remembered my tablets today. I feel I over-indulged, with 2 seperate sandwiches for lunch and going out to eat for tea, then an added dessert. I know it's not going to be wonderful tomorrow either, I'm planning on going to see Toy Story 3 after I finish nursery with a couple of friends, so I'm planning on buying some grapes and sneaking them in to snack on. Then it'll be late by the time we're out so have to find something to eat before getting home. Thinking along the lines of a subway salad. Another salad, I really couldn't refuse the offer when my mum suggested she treat us. Love her to bits.

    Breakfast
    Slimfast Vanilla Milkshake
    Lunch
    2 Brown Rolls, 2 Quorn Chicken Style Burgers, handful of lettuce, a light spread of extra light mayonaisse and a dollop of sweet onion relish.
    Snack
    15 grapes
    Handful of Pic 'n' mix... couple of mini eggs, a snake, fizzy bubblegum bottles and 2 apple cords. Yummy but so bad.
    Tea
    Plain Chicken Breast Subway Salad; lettuce, black olive slices, gherkins, carrots, sweetcorn and peppers with a sweet chilli dressing.

    Exercise
    45 Min. Walk - Slow (Afternoon/Evening)

    Review
    Today was a definite treat for me, went to the cinema, spent a fortune and a great deal of time as well, the train was delayed for an hour and then we had to change platforms twice before getting back home. Toy Story 3 was emotional, at least it was to me, worth watching definitely.
    I can't say I'm doing great on the exercise front at the moment. I was doing it every morning but my room is being redecorated so the tele has had to come down and therefore I can't follow the exercise DVD. Hmm. Food will be better tomorrow.

    No exercise! Well, I put down being in the nursery because of all the bending, sitting and standing, constant movement. I should have done that for yesterday too. I seem to be getting later and later to bed, I know that isn't a good thing for my weight loss. Early night hopefully tomorrow... and some form of exercise. Would be lovely to go swimming, as our boiler has suddenly packed in and there's no hot water it's a good place to get all cleaned up too. :p

    Review
    It was another one of those days where I felt like snacking constantly. Not good. Even now, my stomach is rumbling. I've been trying to drink more, thinking it's just thirst, but it seems to make the gurgling worse. I did exercise today, so that's a start, I should really wear shoes on the treadmill. I was planning for tomorrow to do a quick 10 minute workout in the morning, to get my metabolism going. Another thing I need to keep remembering are the xenical... a couple of times now over the past week I've remembered it like 2 hours after the meal, or forgot the whole day... or breakfast. Not good. I can't say today for food was particularly bad or good. I started off with good intentions, and the hunger just kept getting worse. Hmm. See how I am tomorrow, will have work, keep my mind off it.

    Have you thought about maybe eating something a little 'bigger' for breakfast hun? It looks like you have just a yogurt most mornings and that's not usually enough. I have either cereal and a yogurt/fruit, or some toast and a banana.

    Try filling yourself up with and bulking out your meals with veg and fruit. That way you might not feel so hungry.

    Hope you're ok.

    Thanks Blue Butterfly for the input, the only problem is that in the mornings I'm just not that bothered about eating or I'm just plain in a rush. I make sure I eat something, at least, but a yogurt is usually the best thing for me because it's quick and easy. That or a slimfast. I did have muesli today though, simply because I had the morning completely free. I wasn't as hungry but I think part of it is that I had my mind on other things as well.

    Friday 23rd July 2010

    Breakfast
    Ski Smooth Strawberry Yogurt
    Tesco Wholewheat Muesli (with UHT skimmed milk)
    Snack
    2 small handfuls of BBQ coated peanuts
    Lunch
    2 Slices of Nimble Wholemeal Bread
    1 Small Can of Light Choices Baked Beans
    1 Tablespoon of Scrambled Egg (an egg and UHT skimmed milk)
    Snack
    Slimfast Pretzels
    Tea
    Quorn Cottage Pie
    2 Tablespoons of Mint Jelly
    Dessert
    No added Sugar Strawberry Jelly Pot

    Exercise
    30 Min. Walk (moderate effort)
    (Work - general)

    Review
    So, I don't think today was bad for food. To be perfectly honest, I didn't have much time to think of it. It took most the morning to defrizz my hair (Note to self: NEVER go to bed with wet/damp hair - not worth the hassle) and the evening was filled with work and keeping busy with that. Another day of work tomorrow, late tea. Will control my snacking... maybe use the treadmill, or the wii as I haven't used it in a while.

    I was feeling so sick this morning after shopping, I forced some breakfast and lunch down and decided to have the vimto to give me some sort of energy and after that I felt better. Was very light headed. Food wasn't amazing today, felt like I could have done more exercise too, hopefully fell all recovered tomorrow.

    Review
    Thought I'd buy some popcorn kernels this week, never tried to make popcorn by myself. Only burnt one lot (tried to do it on the hob with a saucepan that didn't have a fitted lid). Tasted good, and they did so much as well, shared them with my boyfriend's family, his 4 year old sister loved watching them pop. I think the sausage was just that they were laying out from my mum's tea and I was bored, just wanted to know if they were nice. Evidentally, they were. I'm not exactly unhappy with what I ate today, I made so much sweet and sour that I only ended up eating half of what was on my plate. The exercise was literally focussed on entertaining said 4 year old and her older cousin, what a workout.

For the sweet chilli prawns I coated them before and during cooking, Placing them on pre-soaked skewers divided by chunks of pepper. The salad included iceburg lettuce, celery, finely chopped pepper, onion crispies, small chicken chunks and (homemade) thousand island dressing.

    Chinese Takeaway Pancake Roll
    Daim Bar Cookie
    Popcorn coated lightly in sweetner

    I did the whole snacking thing again, I should really address the issue of late night snacking, some of it was genuine hunger as I wasn't too keen on the fake prawns I had for tea. After I started it seemed so easy to carry on with the cookie and popcorn. I need to start eating more during the morning, I think that gives me more of an awareness of what I'm putting in my mouth later on at night. Felt so guilty after that, couldn't get to sleep until 4 in the morning.

    Review
    My tea was very fattening, it was also delish. I also couldn't resist the sweet treats today. I feel my motivation slipping just a bit, I had to force myself on the treadmill and literally had to grip the sofa to stop me lunging at my brother who was waving prawn cocktail pringles at me (faves). I think the snacking was kept at a minimum because of constantly reminding myself that I could do it, and that I knew it wasn't physical hunger as I didn't fancy having the strawberries in the fridge at all, or the cherries... or even the grapes, though they looked dodgy. I know tomorrow will be a diet disaster, I'm travelling all day... got lunch sorted, making sandwiches in advance, but tea is going to have to be something fast and convenient. Will try and think as healthy as I can.

    Day Trip to see my family up in Cambridge. I couldn't turn down my nan's cakes and biscuits and as for the meal out, it was part of a meal deal and the burger seemed a lighter option then some of the other ones. The dessert was a treat :eek: Well, definitely back to it, I'm hoping it may have a positive effect, boost my metabolism, confuse my body a bit. I have work today, so a bit more exercise. Don't get back till 11pm on Fridays so don't feel up to exercising further than that. (Weighed in (30/7/10): 17 stone 2lbs - ARGHHHHHHHH! Hoping that's just a fluke from yesterday, not all the damage from the meal and cakes and biscuits)

    Baaaaaaaaaaaad bad snacking... I was knackered after work and my family had ordered Indian Takeaway, so the whole house smelt lovely... I scraped the leftover naan and sauce and then just couldn't stop myself eating more. I really need to deal with my late night snacking habits when everyone else is eating and I'm tired. It would have been better if I could just go straight up to bed, which is what I wanted to do but my room is still being redecorated which means the sofa is my bed and they were still in the living room when I got back at 11, so I couldn't go straight to sleep... they ate in the living room, which is why the smell was so strong in there. I don't mean to make so many excuses, I should have felt empowered by saying no, but so many things got in the way. My grandmother gave us 5 carrier bags full of sweets yesterday... we managed to get rid of the majority of the 4 bags (giving it away to friends)... still have 1 left. Should just throw it. Ugh.
