The 2 Slimavite meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch and one 'standard' meal has become second nature now and compared to the days when I never ate anything before 4pm in the afternoon I feel better for eating a more balanced amount of meals rather than one big calorie laden meal in the evening and then starve again for 24 hours - not healthy!
I have cut down on the unhealthy foods I craved when I was pregnant:
and I now have the 2 shakes and plenty more of this:
|I have rekindled my love of fruit|
So up til now in 7 weeks I had lost 1 stone and 10 lbs and weighed 14 stone 9lbs and after this week I weigh 14 stone 8 lbs, so a 1lb loss this week. Total loss in 8 weeks = 1st 11 lbs
With going to Cybermummy this weekend and perhaps not being able to get access to milk for my shakes I am realistic that it may be difficult. I have already booked a meal out tomorrow night with some of the other lovely bloggers attending the conference and although I have ordered pizza for my main meal (going to an Italian) I have ordered fresh fruit salad for my pudding. I am determined that although it is not the ideal situation, I will not give in to too much temptation and make sensible choices with what is on offer.
I hope this will see me in good stead for next weeks weigh in.Image: nuchylee / FreeDigitalPhotos.net
