This week I put on 1.5lb so I'm back at 11st 2.5. I'm ok wih that as last week I was hoping for a STS but then with being ill I lost too much too quickly, plus I had cake (from Druckers) and a lovely savoury pie with lots of pastry! So worth it! I was good with my syns for the rest of the week as I didn't have any until I'd surpassed the total syns for the cake and pie.
I'm doing an SP week this week (with a banana thrown in for breakfast as I have to have it!) I had a curry last night and whereas I usually have rice, I just boiled a load of veg and I'm scared to say that I enjoyed it more than the rice!
Hope everyone's having a good week with the lovely weather!
You'll soon have that little gain back off next week..and you enjoyed it so it was totally worth it.
I know what you mean about the rice, since being on Sw I can take or leave rice and pasta - too bland for me, like eating for the sake of it. I'd rather have veg and more protein (keeps me full - good job as I'm a miserable mare if I'm hungry!!)
I was worth it
I seem to be loving the veg this week and even my husband has had veg rather than rice or pasta. I'm planning on making roast butternut squash cubes instead of roast potatoes either tonight or tomorrow (which I'm hoping will be lovely like sweet potato roasties!)

Doh Spooney that's annoying but at least you know why.
Have you tried cauliflower rice? I was a skeptic until I tried it, it really is like real rice.
If you haven't, you basically break a cauli into florets, whiz in the food processer until in rice sized bits, then put in a bowl in the microwave covered in cling film (no water) and blitz for say 2 mins maximum.
It is quite 'dry' like real rice - I eat loads of it.
Also use white cabbage sliced thinly instead of spaghetti, or we have a julienne peeler and make courgette spaghetti. Surprised how well it works.
I haven't tried it, though I'll probably give it a go so thanks for the top tip
someone at group said that Tesco are now selling it... Not sure if it'll be frozen or fresh.
Have you seen the gadget which turns veg into pasta strands? Sorta like the julienne peeler but you twist the entire vegetable into it. I'm tempted to buy one just to see. I eat more veg with it!
