This week I put on 1.5lbs. Not happy. I was very good all week and messed up Friday. I had planned to make a low point Indian feast for me and other half but the fish I used in the fish curry was off- didn't realise until after and it stank to high heaven. So ended up ordering in a take away! Nightmare!!! Was bloody nice though :-)

Also it is my time of the month so may have something to do with it. I really want to lose 3lb next week to make up for this week and also have a loss for next. So need to be really focused this week.

I'm also doing exercise! Yay. Loving yoga especially before bedtime, I feel very relaxed after. Plus I got the weight watchers move more dvd and I think it's fab. Managed 30 mins last night. Plus using Sunday's to have a good long walk, currently looking at different place we can walk round Oxfordshire and Cotswolds.

Ok food plan this week:

T- we had amai udon- wagamama recipe but I tweaked it a bit to make it 9.5 points
W- Sausage Stew
T- Fish, veg and cous cous
F- Butterless chicken (recipe in previous post) and saag aloo
S- Sweet and sour prawns and rice
S- Steak and kidney pies- homemade so making them as low point as I can

Plus already done the following week if anyone is interested! Lol
M- weigh in treat- usually have takeaway but going to make cheesy enchiladas as been craving them!
T- Stirfry
W- Spaghetti and meatballs
T- Fish, veg and potatoes
F- Cha han- another wagamama recipe but I've got it down to 11 points from 14.5
S- In Brighton for the day and weekend so going to save points but we are prob going to Wagamama's for dinner (can you tell I love it!)
S- Duck or chicken raman

How is everyone going so far? I'm feeling a bit down as not lost as much as I wanted. Only lost about 10lbs in 10 weeks. Being big I thought it would be more. I really need to up the exercise and stop letting the weekends defeat me!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a good week everyone.


  1. I think 10lbs in 10 weeks is great. Please dont think otherwise.

    I also have problems with the weekends. I can track all week and then to pot at the weekends. Hopefully we will both get there one day :)


  2. 1lb a week average is weight you will keep off. Keep that in mind when you feel frustrated, and it will help. It does for me when I think that I could/should have lost more last year.
    Have a good week yourself - your food plan looks tasty, and I'm definitely going to check out that butter chicken link, thanks. :-)

  3. Thanks guys.

    CBG- i don't know what it is about weekends but i just feel like i should treat myself.

    Jaframity- The butter(less) chicken was so yummy. We just had it tonight. Cannot believe how low points it is. Will defo be a regular x

  4. Your menu's always sound yummy! I think I need to be more creative and try even more new dishes. The ones I've tried so far with fish have turned out disasterous! Maybe time for rethink.
    I know how frustrated you must feel when you expect to lose more than you did. I always aim high and get disappointed. Trouble with me is I get liek that then quit again. Keep it up you will get to your goal weight eventually. Slow and steady is the key apparently! Well done x
