Really, really busy yesterday, cleaning cupboards, spring cleaning ,etc. Had one egg on one slice of toast with grilled tomatoes for breakfast then worked through until 6 pm. Absolutely knackered, but at 69 I suppose I'm entitled to be, so hubby went to the fish shop and came back with chicken and chips. Even when I wasn't dieting I rarely ate chips but I loved every mouthful of that meal. Have lost 22 lbs so far and although I should lose another stone I will be happy if I lose another 7lbs. Haven't a clue how many calories were in that chicken and chips but worked out that I must have had 600 calories during the rest of the day (can't remember how many cups of tea and coffee with milk I had so can't work it out exactly). Do I feel guilty - no. Have I gone back on my diet today - yes, which is a miracle in itself as usually that would be a signal to give up. One thing I did notice though was at one time I would have eaten the meal and then be picking at whatever was in the house but I was so stuffed I felt uncomfortable, so looks like my stomach is used to less food at last - yippee. Have a good week everyone.
