    Sorry to be a pain Brambling, but are we weighing in this week still, or starting next week?

    Hi Everyone,

    Well I weighed in at 10st 6lbs this morning. I am aiming to lose at least 14lbs before my daughters wedding in September, though ideally I'd like to lose a couple more!

    My leg is almost back to normal. I managed to start walking in flat shoes after a week and didn't miss a session of Pilates as a lot of that is lying down. I've also been swimming for the past couple of weeks. Today I went back to yoga and on Wednesday I cautiously tried a very gentle tennis session. I'm not ready for a more energetic tennis with running around yet so need to give that a couple of weeks I think. It will be four weeks on Sunday that I tore the muscle so I think I've done really well. I've been doing all the exercises and seen a physiotherapist twice so far.

    Now I'm nearly back to normal I need to really buckle down and concentrate. I intend to carry on doing my low carb approach with time restricted eating. I usually manage to not eat after six each evening and then don't eat again till lunch time the next day. I think I need to cut down on fat a bit as although its a LCHF (low carb high fat) approach the fat I burn really needs to be my own!!

    Im at work shortly so had quite a substantial lunch. I shan't finish till after nine so hopefully won't need to eat a meal when I get back. I've had Yoga this morning and a short walk but am a long way off my step target at present (back up to 16,000 minimum). I shall get some at work and walking there and back so hopefully will manage it by bedtime.

    Lunch: Smoked salmon and avocado salad, with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled egg and mayonnaise. Greek yoghurt with stewed plums.
    Treat: Fruit split icecream lolly.

    Good luck everyone.

    I'll leave that up to you Sirens I'm happy to update your figures when you want, just don't look too closely at the weekly totals at the bottom of the list :D

    Rosewood I have added 14lb to the list. Glad to hear the leg is on the mend

    I sat down lunchtime and wrote a menu plan which will take me to Wednesday dinner, looking back I can see that the weeks I have done this I have had good weight losses. I used my freezer / fridge audit to plan as I'm also trying to eat down what's in the freezer, which is a whole different challenge.

    Food wise today :-
    B - fruit and FF greek yoghurt (banana, peach and strawberries)
    L - LO chinese style pork fillet and veg with whole wheat noodles - there was 1tbsp of honey and 1 tsp of oil between two portions
    D - will be mussels with salad and some air fried chips (they will probably be a lot fatter than frites :))
    S - Fibre 1 chocolate brownie, apple, babybel cheese portion

    Evening Everyone,

    A quick post before I go off to work. I managed without a meal last night when I got back, just had a (large!) piece of Brie. However, I did feel the need to eat breakfast after my swim this morning.

    DGD has been all day so we've been busy playing.

    Breakfast: Poached eggs on toast
    Lunch: Smoked salmon, cream cheese, pepperoni slices, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber. Greek yoghurt with plum compote.
    Dinner: Yellowfin sole with peas, peppers and cauliflower cheese.
    Treat: Frappe when we met my Mother and DiL for coffee.

    Have a good evening everyone
