After staying the same last week, I'm really pleased to have lost a further 2lb this week. Altogether I've lost a stone if I include the 3lb I lost before I started the NHS 12 week plan (through doing couch to 5k). Or I've lost 11lb if I just count the 7 weeks of the NHS plan which I've done so far, which is HALF of the 22lb I was aiming to lose to reach my goal weight of 10st7. Excellent. I may not reach 10st7 by week 12, but I think I can get to 10st13 perhaps, which would be amazing - here's hoping
I'm on week 8 and the advice is all about eating more vegetables, and making the most of salads, both of which I consider myself a bit of an expert on, being a veg-loving person! But that doesn't mean I can't get anything from this week's advice. I've read it closely and gleaned these pieces of useful advice:
Eating salad out: always ask for the dressing on the side, and just add a small amount
Tomato-based curries, marinades and pasta sauces are often a healthier option
Prepare vegetables to have as snacks (baby carrots, radishes, sugar snaps)
... Just off to the greengrocers now!
