Weightloss Diary Week #3

Week #2 of my weightloss journey is complete!

This week I feel like I have been more conscious of what I am eating and drinking. Although still not being too 'strict' on myself.
Monday to Wednesday I stuck to plan but when I wrote last weeks blog I had forgotten (!!) that it was Valentines on Thursday... that night we ordered a chinese takeaway but ordered much less than we would have done.
Friday night my Mum & partner stayed so for ease I made a slimming world Chilli which was lovely. They brought a bottle of wine but I stuck to just one glass.
For my lunches during the week I have been trying to take healthier snack options - more fruit, fat free yoghurts & sugar free jelly. I think it really helps to have things close by when my tummy begins to rumble!
Saturday I had a croissant for breakfast (not particularly diet friendly!) and then met my friend for coffee & lunch. I had a latte & a mocha (!!) but did ask for skimmed milk thinking that 'every little helps'... as we hadn't seen each other for so long the hours flew by and before we knew it, our lunch had turned into mid afternoon and we ate at 3.30pm. I had a baguette, salad & chips but again I thougth about what filling to have and instead of my usual choices of bacon & brie or club sandwich, I chose ham, rocket & mustard. I also shared the chips with my friends husband.
We had planned on having a slimming world curry on Saturday night but as I hadn't eaten until 3.30pm I was still quite full so decided not to have dinner. Normally I would still find space for a bowl of curry too!
Sunday instead of a bacon & fried egg sandwich for breakfast, a normal lunch & dinner, I cooked a slimming world friendly breakfast brunch at 11am (scrambled egg, grilled mushroom, grilled bacon & dry fried potato slices) and then we went for a walk before having an earlier than normal dinner at 5pm which was beef wellington & vegetables.
As you can see I didn't take drastic measures but I did think more about what I was eating.
I'm really happy to say that I lost 3lbs this week, which brings me to a total loss of 4lb in my first two weeks!
Meals this week include: beef & butternut squash curry, mustard pork chops, lemon & black pepper chicken, bacon mushroom & spinach pasta, and... something else which I have forgotten! We are spending the weekend with friends but hoping that with walks along the beach, a game of tennis & conscious eating and drinking I can have another loss next week! 

Week #2 = 3lb Loss
