Thanks alot Terri!

I know carbs is my downfall. I grew up in a large family with 7 brothers and I remember mam filling us all up on bread for every meal (I imagine money was tight back then!)...so the habit has stuck!

I have definitely cut down my sandwich intake - a few weeks back, I was eating 2 slices of toast for breakfast, 2 slices of bread for a sandwich lunch and another 2 slices of bread with my tea in the evenings!! I have been known - on occassion - to make potato sandwiches (I love them sooooooo much!)...that's how much I crave carbs!!

Anyway, I have cut out the bagels every morning, but am sticking with the porridge as it's really filling me up, and I am already feeling more energised in work each morning because of it! I'll have to figure out other ways to cut the other carbs though - love the lettuce wrapped 'sandwich' and will give that a try over the weekend - thanks again!
