The first few days are going well. I'm calorie counting. I've stuck to my limit of 1400 kcals a day - just about.
I made my children their usual meatballs and pasta but i opted for the meat free version by having same sauce but adding mushrooms and peppers. Plus I tried 'courgetti' for the first time. I must say i was impressed.
My original plan was to avoid meat altogether but I have decided to seriously cut down on it, I've stopped drinking alcohol (I used to drink a lot, almost everyday) and upped my water intake dramatically. I'm enjoying trying different recipes as i love cooking and expanding my cooking repertoire. I don't like chocolate or sweets but i do love butter, cheese, bread and other carbs - and i mean love them!! I have been strong and avoided these things so far.
Tomorrow I'm going to plan and start my aerobic and strength exercises while my family is out, so determined to lose the weight.
