Good Morning all, My birthday today and boy am I feeling the love, pressies, and family dinners out for the nxt 3 days YUM YUM !! but seriously I really will try to stick to counting the calories, haven't yet got a date for my hernia op, so trying like mad to get the weight down (anything that helps is a bonus) have stopped tea/coffee now only drinking Lift lemon tea (24 cals cup) and am finding it really refreshing, have now been on new healthy eating plan three weeks and trying to stick to 1500 cals per day, just the snacks on a night time watching TV that's difficult but drink water and take the advice given on this smashing app, find all your suggestions sooo helpful and encouraging can't thank you all enough, Wk one 4 lb weight loss Wk2 2lb & this week another 2lb so it is heading in the right direction. I am sat looking at a really lovely Birthday cake my daughter in law has bought me from my fav cake shop in the village, will just have a small piece, normally I would get through the lot in one day and think " Woopy Woo" but no more, hopefully this is going to be the new me!!
