Hi there :)

Maybe a new food diary will help you get back on your way to loosing. Your menu's look good so far, and well done on loosing 21lbs so far, thats brilliant! :)

I'm going to try a risotto for my tea too- never done one before- any tips!?

Have a great rest of day
Hi there :)

Thanks for posting! I hope writing things down will help.

The recipe I use is from the extra easy book - I made it for the first time on Sunday and was surprised at how nice it was considering it had no oil/butter in it!

I think the best tip for making a risotto is to have patience and keep stiring! If you use butternut squash in it make sure you cut it small so it cooks through.

If you have an extra A choice parmesan cheese sprinkled on top in gorgeous! Let me know how you get on!

Hey there,

thought I would update you on the risotto! It went really well and was tasty! It was even better the next day when I had it for lunch at work. I ended up doing chicken and asparagus, and instead of adding cheese to lower syns I stirred through 2 extra light laughing cow triangles. I took your advice and never stopped stirring!!

Hope all is going well with you! :)

Have a great weekend xx
