    christening today

    Just fruit for breakfast 150

    Going to trust in myself to be good, I am going to a christening today, just going to have to concentrate on my portions, then play with the kids to burn it off.

    I will post at the end of the day, this will be a good incentive not to overeat.;)

    Ahh OK, get you now!

    Can I ask how much exercise you usually do? I need to do more I think. We've just bought an exercise bike, so I quite like going on that.

    Hey Alex! I always count the cals in fruit and even veg tbh. Some fruit has more calories in it than I'd imagined! Like an apple for instance, the ones I got today apparently have 63 cals per apple. Or bananas have on average 100 cals.

    I'd love to give suggestions on varying your diet, but admitedly I'm probably eating all the same stuff alot of the time, lol. I tend to snack on crackers, fruit, low cal crisps (like Golden Lights, French Fries etc) and my beloved Snack-a-jacks, hehe. I just try and vary the veg I have with my meals.

    hi Alex,

    I have to count my fruit because I have loads to lose, but i enjoy soup lunchtimes if at home because its filling and takes a while to eat, which is half the battle hey.
