    Hi everyone

    I'm nearing the end of week one and so far so good (I think!!)

    I've been enjoying a huge variety of food and will follow the green day diet cos I'm veggie.

    Today I've experimented and made potato rostis for lunch. I saw a recipe somewhere so recreated it from memory.... it was lovely but I think I put too much egg in to bind the grated potato. It reminded me a bit of egg fried rice ;). Served with mushrooms and 2 poached eggs it was a really filling, sin free meal.

    Lots to do today, so I'll sign off here and check back in later.

    Hiya Mongoosed, you'll get a lot of support on here, I'm not doing the green diet because it sets off my ibs, currently I'm doing red or ee but do prefer red.

    Well good luck and b.t.w. loving your name! xx Boo xx

    I found where I'd seen the rosti recipe (sw magazine from last month)... all it needed was less egg!

    I've been cooking again! Made a veggie curry with butternut squash, mushroom, onion and pepper and bombay potatoes with spinach. Easily converted OH's into a chicken curry which he enjoyed. :)

    Glass of wine and diet lemonade finished the day off well. Realised I haven't had my hexBs today... will keep an eye on that tomorrow. One more day to go until I'm back to my weigh in day and I'm cant wait to get on the scales and see how I've done. But for now, off to bed I go....

    Thanks Gail. It's a Monday weigh in - early evening straight from work. The thought of getting on the scales on Monday has kept me motivated for the first half of the weekend...

    Thanks Jules :)

    Hsd a good day today - been very productive, eaten well and now watching the dvd Hairspray before I see it at the theatre in a few weeks.

    Today's menu:

    Breakfast: Bran flakes and banana

    Lunch: quiche and beans

    Supper: Quorn sausages, carrots, brocolli, peas and potatos.

    Snacks: grapes, yoghurt

    Now all that's left to do is light the fire and cook supper..... but I'd rather stay watching Hairspray :rolleyes:

    Well I've had a good day today, but realise that I haven't had as many super free foods as I should have done. I'm on the green plan so I dont think it's as important, but I want to get into the habit of having more fruit. Have bought 2 punnets of cherries to take to work, bananas for breakfast and a pineapple (normally to leave in the fruit bowl until it goes off??).

    Went slightly off plan last night for a valentine's supper - so being very sensible with my syns and not using them up 'just because'.
