My Meals today :-)

My Meals today :-)

Hi everyone,

I hope you're not getting fed-up of my posting - I know I'm posting a lot today! But I wanted to update that I succeeded in my Pledge to have a 'non-meat' day - and I thoroughly enjoyed my meals - here they are.

Breakfast: Porridge with mixed seeds, nuts, and fruit.

Lunch: Homemade Roasted Tomato soup and bread rolls with butter, followed by a quarter of a grapefruit with yoghurt and pumpkin and chia seeds.

Dinner: Homemade Vegetable Casserole, followed by Dark chocolate with hazelnuts and a cup of coffee.

I drink coffee and tea throughout the day, and my total calories for today were 1,815.

Hi Little_toad,

Thank you so much, and it's great to hear you enjoyed a Casserole this evening as well. I agree, it is nice to see people's photos of their food - I feel like I'm a bit of a 'food voyeur' these days. I get pleasure from it!

In answer to your question, I would say that I used to eat 'badly' years ago, i.e. I over-ate sugary and fatty foods - and had a tendency to 'comfort eat' and sometimes binge eat. Consequently, I was 'obese' in the BMI classification - that was when I was in my 40's. However, I have lost approx 5 and a half stones, and have maintained that weight loss for the past 3 years - and hence as part of my 'changes' I try to adhere to eating as 'healthily as I can' - and the HU forums (healthy eating and the NHS weight loss) help me to stick to it - I am also developing a greater interest in cooking and enjoying meals - and love the fact this community is growing and people are posting and discussing their meals.

I've yo-yo'ed in my weight in the past, and I really want to maintain a 'healthy lifestyle' now - to hopefully stave off any health issues - and reduce my chance of developing any. Fingers crossed.

I've noticed my skin has improved significantly since eating healthily - and I feel so much better in myself. More energy and feel much fitter. I do a lot more exercise now than I ever did, including running! I would never have run anywhere in the past...

A bit of a long reply.

Hope you have a great evening!

Hi Little_toad,

Wow, great that you made some Homemade Rye bread to accompany your dinner - I bet that was really good. :-)

Great that you've go the overeating etc under control now as well - it's hopefully a thing of the past for us both. :-)
