Hi everyone, hope your week started off well and continues to be fab. I weighed this morning as I find if I weigh on a Monday when I have been on shift all weekend I don't get an accurate result. As I don't sleep particularly well during the day and work around 42 hours between 9pm Friday and 11am Monday, I find I 'bloat' a little. This has all gone by Tuesday morning, hence todays weigh in. I have lost 2lb this week bringing my total to 21lb in 15 weeks. At this steady pace I could in theory lose 6st in a year. How awesome would that be!! It has taken over 30 years to steadily put that on and in just 1 year it can be banished forever. Mixed feelings on this, elated that I am doing so well and will hopefully continue to do so, a little vexed and sad that I have spent so many years not doing things because I was too silly to lose this blubber sooner. Just 1 year is all it can take, what a numpty I was. WAS being the operative word, not now, not ever again. BRAINS IN MOTION AT LAST.
I was making my breakfast this morning and got to thinking of what I use the most of in our family. My shopping trolley is mostly full of veggies and salad stuff, but it made me think as to what are the most eaten things now and what was the most eaten things before I consciously began my weightloss journey. So here are the top 5 food fevers in my house:-
NOW. 1. Mushrooms, we go through 2kg in a week
2. Onions, 2kg minimum
3. Salad leaves - by the bucket load
4. Skinless and boneless fish - my fish bill is frightening!!
5. Eggs - 4 dozen in a week!!!
BEFORE. 1. Bread 2. Potatoes. 3. Red meat. 4. Mushrooms. 5. Eggs.
So some things have changed and others seem to be a constant. Potatoes are rarely eaten now, bread has quartered and red meat is down to 1-2 times a week at most. The mushrooms and eggs still play a massive part in our daily food intake.
So what does everyone else have in their top 5 Now and Then Food Fevers?
