    Well, I said I'd update you after I finished my first EE week.

    I'd only done red and green before, never mix-to-match or EE, but I was getting a bit 'bored' and wanted to try something new.

    So, last week at group I got the EE book, read the little booklet they gave us for EE in our packs and planned a week worth of meals before shopping to fit it.

    I used 4 recipes from the book:

    Moroccan Lamb - OMG SO GOOD!
    Beef stew - yummy
    Chicken and leek pie - again, yummy
    Steak and potatoes - always gotta love steak

    I just worked with the plan for other meals. I was loving it!!! My tummy flet flatter - even OH commented!

    But then mother nature gave me my second star week of the month - gah!!! So cruel! As I wasn't expecting it (as had one 2 weeks ago), I didn't take my herbal aqua ban before hand (I gain lots of water) and so at WI last night I'd only lost 1/2lb.

    Gutted because it wasn't a fair representation of a 'normal' week trial of EE. So will give it another go this week. But it is still a loss!

    All I would stress is portion size. I didn't have huge portions, but because my body wasn't used to having meats and tatties etc, I felt very full and I didn't snack as much on free foods as I normally do. So bear this in mind and try to keep the snacks going.

    I would recommend it because I think on a normal week I might have had a bigger loss. I certainly plan for a better loss next Tuesday! :)

    Meals are fab - easier to work with and yummy recipes.

    :D

    You sound so grounded Sticky! You are going to have one massive weightloss next week! OH dear I seem to be getting a reputation on here for banging on about EE! My usual consultant refers to me in class as "our EE expert"! As she can't get her head round it!

    Sticky, you still lost on a * week Hun and thats an achievment in itself!! That said though, you should still have a very nice loss next week at weigh in.
    Im thinking of giving EE another go as I dont think that I give it a fair trial the last time (too set in my ways!). Reading success stories like yours and judimac have encouraged me to try it again!

    Thank you!

    I'm not stressing too much anymore. Cause even on a bad week I've lost a stack of weight. 20.5lbs - I'm looking well and feeling better. Confidence is up too - so I am happy to coast along to a target now lol :D

    Thanks all - you're all great support :D :D
