Hi everyone- im having a really positive day today and feel like ive got my focus back.
Visited my friend and baby today and for lunch while she tucked into a pot noodle (yuk) i had a chicken sandwich at 185cal 3.8% fat. Stayed with plan and proud i didnt choose anything unhealthy. My friend is really encouraging though and is the slim and slender type so can eat what she wants including the 2 packs of crisps and chocolate!! I bought and alpen light cereal bar at 70cals, 4%fat. I dont mind though being around anyone eating unhealthy things at the moment- my mind just screams out HIGH FAT/CALORIES!!

Dinner this evening was a small baked potato with philidelphia light and salsa with salad. Only had 850 cals today which is too low but as i like an evening snack i can afford to get some wholemeal crackers and more phili/salsa (love it!) plus a low fat yoghurt if i feel the urge.

My time of month has started today so ive not felt the cravings for salt and carbs which is good. Appetite not as big today with pains but im pleased that i am getting back into a good routine again- this weight is going to come off!

Just a question.....because in the beginning i lost alot of weight without proper execise i have what i would call very saggy arms- i hate them. Do you think its too late to heal them? Ive still got 2 stone to lose til im at my goal weight so im hoping that they do go down some more in this time because they really bother me!

Interesting recipe, Mern!!! Really unusual. May have to check it out...

Thanks for validating what I feel. I like my sprouted grain English muffins for breakfast with cheese and a piece of fruit. And I'm sorry but it feels healthier in my body than bacon and eggs. So who am I hurting?

April, the camping pics are great. Looks like such a peaceful place and so pretty. Even your kids and the dogs seemed relaxed. It's no wonder you're looking forward to going back in August! Thanks so much for sharing.

I love sprouted grain bread--so much texture and the taste is so nutty and satisfying. I have no doubt your breakfast of English muffin, cheese, and fruit is more healthful than bacon and eggs. The carbs in that sprouted grain bread don't get absorbed as much as flour carbs, either--but I'm sure you knew that. Kudos on your choice!

My post will also be short. It's been a long day, starting with a mammogram! Then off to the license bureau to renew driver's license, vehicle sticker and health card, then off to an extra long day at work!

I did stop at the muffin shop in the mall for a coffee, and managed to leave without buying anything else!

goals for this week:
<1400 calories: 1188, 1702, 1350, 993
Net Carbs < 20: 18.1, 19.7 15.7, 20.2
Water >64(oz): 48, 60, 50, 45
exercise: none, 1 hr gardening, 20 minutes walking, none since I worked late

Everyone is doing so well it's really keeping me inspired. Have a great day tomorrow!
