    Hi :wave_cry:
    I was on this forum very briefly last year, I had lost a huge amount of weight last year on the Cambridge Diet, but I'd got to the point where I was going to scream if I had to drink another fake shake so I gave that up & started to CC. I did okay till the winter blues caught up with me then all my bad food habits slowly crept back.
    I knew my weight has been creeping (or rather galloping) up over the summer. But I got a real shock when I go on my, very neglected, scales this morning.
    So back to weighting everything starting from today.
    I've got about 8 month till a big trip to the West Coast of the US. So that's my incentive.

    So today I will be eating........

    A bowl of porridge made with half soya milk & half water with raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, sweetened with a teaspoon of brown sugar.

    At work for my break I'll have a meal replacement shake. I only get half an hour break & I'm a very slow eater, so I very rarely have 'proper' food then, I usually just grab a bar of choccie, but that's stopping from today.

    And for supper I have a Quorn Cottage Pie with fresh veggies (spouts, carrots & broccoli)

    According to Food Focus ( the CC site I use) that works out at about 800 calories for the day.

    I'm not able to exercise much ATM, I have a damaged ankle which is taking it's own sweet time in healing & till that's okay I'm very much limited in what I can do.:cry:

    Thanks HH. I've tried myfitnesspal, but find Food Focus easier to use cause I'm a veggie & usually cook from scratch. It just seems easier to add your own recepes & unusual ingredients.

    Well I did okay yesterday, well apart from a handful of soya nuts.:eek:

    Today's menu is:

    Breakfast: Porridge with fruit

    Lunch: Muller Rice (today I get 15 mins break!)

    Tea: Homemade Lentil & Veg Dahl & brown rice.

    Total for the day = 1084

    The Dahl is a recipe from one of Carol Vorderman's books and is a fav round here even with my Hubby. Tho he does spice his portion up with hot sauce!:rolleyes:

    Did okay yesterday, but working in a supermarket & scanning pizza & choccie all day is not exactly helpful when you're trying to take your mind off food!

    Today's menu is:

    Breakfast: Porridge with fruit

    Lunch: Muller rice (short break again:sigh:)

    Tea: Cajun Stew (homemade) with brown rice.

    Snack: Marmite Rice Cakes

    Total: 1020

    I did surcome to the dreaded special offer & bought the Christmas Choccies, but one of my work mates has taken them home for me & is keeping them safely away from me till Dec.
    She knows me too well. :8855:

    Thanx peeps. It was a huge shock when I got on the scales. I got on them 3 times, and moved them round the bathroom cause I didn't believe what they said.:8855:
    Now if only I could go walking. But the knackered ankle is still not reliable, it gives way without warning, especially on uneven surfaces. And as there are a lot of old cobbles round here...............:(.
    I'd go swimming if I could, but the nearest pool is a £3 bus ride away, so with that & the entrance fee I just can't afford it ATM.

    Tea: Polenta with lemony asparagus & chickpeas.*

    Snack: Rice Cakes

    *this is a new recipe to me, so it might get dumped depending how it turns out.;)

    Update: It turned out quite nice, but making polenta from scratch takes quite a lot of arm strength! All that stirring! It's a dish for special occasions I think.
