It's taken 5 weeks to lost 1/2 stone but I believe that taking baby steps and losing it gradually helps to keep it off in the long run.
This week has been another strange one - it's the week of a ladies month where she *needs* chocolate, in any shape or form! I have tried my hardest to control that with cadburys highlights but I did have to cave and buy some Curly Wurlys towards the end of last week. From memory they are fairly low in syns - 5 or 6, and as we're not really using syns for much else I thought they wouldn't be too harmful.
As far as lunches go, I was trying to get back into salads but as I sit here typing this snow is falling quite heavily outside and salad is quite possibly the last thing on my mind! So, today I have had a tin of Heinz Spaghetti in tomato sauce for my lunch! Not exactly nutritious (although, did you know that is 1 of your 5 a day?!) but, I was reliably informed that they are free on SW extra easy. I also have a plum, and apple & a yoghurt.
Evening meals were fine during the week - lots of fresh fruit & vegetables and low-to-no fat grilled meat. The weekend was "ok" but Mr Sauvy B did make an appearence on Saturday night again... along with two scoops of chocolate ice cream when we went out for Mothers Day lunch.
This weeks meals include: grilled chicken with home made wedges, salad & mango salsa; mince in gravy with mash potato & vegetables; and a vegetable based pasta & sauce with bacon.
Progress is slow but steady!
