For anyone who is interested, I now only have a half a pound to get to my first stone weight loss. It's been slow but then I do like to socialise! I'm making sure I have breakfast but mostly it's fruit and Mullerlight yoghurt. Lunch is usually a salad or leftover dinner from the night before and for dinner my plate always has one third protein, one third starch (pasta, potatoes,rice) and one third salad or non starchy veg.
I do have a drinkypoos on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (one or two glasses of red wine) and I use my sins for gravy, olive oil, icecream or sauces. I've completely cut out cakes and biscuits but do have an Alpen Bar or similar once a day when I get home from work.
I used to get very depressed when I only lost half a pound or stayed the same or put on but I had a word with myself in the New Year and said, "As long as it's going down generally and I'm having a good time and I'm not hungry, stop being so silly!" It's working too! I should have a word with myself more often.
Anyway, I just thought my weight loss journey might help someone else. Hope I've not bored you.
Have a good weekend everyone!
