I've lost 1lb this week so I am now 16st 12lbs. I was hoping for a bigger loss but am happy that it is a loss never the less. I have been back at work for a full week and am practically healed after my operation. I think immediately after my op I was very scared of having bowel movements because it was very painful so I was eating really small portions but since being healed my portions have been increasing so that is what I'll be keeping an eye on this week.
On Friday I went to a Mexican restaurant for a friends birthday, everything on the menu was quite stodgy and cheesy so I went for what I thought was the healthiest option, spicy prawn fajitas which came on a hot plate of sizzling prawns, peppers and onion, then on a separate plate you had 3 small tortilla wraps, a pot of guacamole, pot of sour cream and pot of salsa and you make your own fajitas, it was yummy, I also had half a bottle of white wine. So I'm pleased to see that I can have a treat and still lose a pound.
All my other meals have been extra healthy, lots of green veg and brown rice. I made a lovely veg curry (pictured above). Here's the recipe:
Heat a little oil, add tsp mustard seeds and tsp cumin seeds, when the mustard seeds start popping add a chopped onion and 2 cloves crushed garlic, once onions turn translucent add tbsp tomato puree, tsp tumeric, tsp garam masalla and tsp coriander powder, fry for a bit to create a paste, leave to cool then blend with about 4 tbsp 0% fat natural yogurt and 2 tsp of honey and a pinch of salt.
That's the sauce, then I steamed whatever veg I wanted (carrot sticks and broccoli) and put the steamed veg and sauce in a pot to heat up together then served on brown rice. it was really tasty!
Good luck this week everyone
