Very happy to find this site after discovering Minimins has closed. I weighed myself in this morning at home after a weekend of feeling very meh. I'm now at the heaviest weight I've been in my life and have the rather daunting task of 6 stone to lose! I already have a Nutracheck account all paid up for three months, but gave up on calorie counting one week in. I'm actually half a stone heavier than I was 3 weeks ago. This madness has to stop now!
I've decided to do Filling and Healthy because I know how to do it without having to pay for yet another membership. Though will consider going back to club once I can afford it. F&H has worked for me in the past and I work better without weighing and measuring. I'm going to post my meals and (hopefully!) weight losses in here, because it's a way to keep me focussed, but would be a bonus if anyone else doing F&H could share their experiences too.
B - raw porridge oats, fat-free plain yoghurt, grated apple, all mixed together in a big mug
L - two crumpets with half a tin of baked beans and a poached egg (no butter, the baked beans soaked through nicely though so they were squidgy)
D - cooking now and smells lishus - a sort of ratatouille. Slowly fried one onion, one courgette, half an aubergine and two fat cloves of garlic in 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Then tipped in a carton of passata, a drop of water swished round the empty carton. Chucked in some fresh oregano from our little balcony garden and lots of freshly ground pepper. I always crush my garlic with the flat side of a big knife blade, sprinkling the garlic liberally with salt to draw out the juices. Going to have the ratatouille with brown rice.
S - satsumas; Options hot chocolate to watch University Challenge with later
