    I joined this forum last week, I've done sw lots in the past, I don't have much time to get to group, if I have a spare hour i would prefer to go to the gym. So this time I am using my old books and this forum as my aides! I'm using this thread as my food diary to keep tabs on what I'm doing as I think that seeing visually what I have eaten does help me to stay on track. I'm starting at 14st1 and I will try to upload a picture of me from last weekend which has horrified me somewhat! If anybody can see any flaws in my diary then please let me know :) I'm hoping that some time in the future my success story (fingers crossed) might help to inspire others the same way that many other stories on here have been inspirational to me. So here goes!!

    I could cry looking at that picture! I'm the biggest I've ever been and even though I feel like I'm not too much overweight, this photo tells it all :-( I need to keep looking at it to make sure I change it this time, no more excuses!

    Everything looks okay at the moment. I'm doing it at home though -so I'm not up to date as much as others. If you're getting losses that is all that counts!!!

    Hi Lizzie, hope you don't mind me subscribing too. I'm doing it from home too.. I think the forums are much better than any class :D

    Your dinners look lovely by the way.. just like the sort of thing we eat here.

    Would you care to share the recipe for the curry at all ;) yum...

    Hi cordy, of course I don't mind, I think this forum is just great for the support and for recipe sharing. I've already got more from this forum in a couple of weeks that I did at group! We can all support each other :)

    The curry was soooo easy it was ridiculous! I fried a little onion in some fry light then added a good couple of teaspoons of tikka spices (I used a Schwartz ready made blend). I then added bits of roast chicken left over from our Sunday dinner. If you're using raw chicken I guess you would add it before the spices. I then added a half chicken stock cube and a little hot water then two pots of muller Greek coconut yoghurt. Brought it all up to a simmer and that was it! For the 'Bombay' potatoes I kind of made it up as I went along, again I started with a bit of onion in fry light, then added some chopped garlic and ginger, garam masala, turmeric and ground coriander (about a teaspoon of each), then about a third of a tin of chopped tomatoes, a half chicken stock cube and boiling water to just fill the frying pan enough to cover the spuds, then I chucked in peeled, cubed potatoes. I let this simmer with the lid on for about half an hour until the potatoes were well cooked, and lifted the lid just for the last few minutes to let the consistency thicken. Served this with plain boiled rice and it really hit the spot! Even my slimming-world-sceptical other half enjoyed it and he is a bit of a curry connoisseur! Also, just FYI, I cooked the curries early so that I could reheat them later and both reheated fine, no split yoghurt or anything, so I am confident that it would keep ok in the fridge for reheating the next day :) xx
