Dragon Tattoo

I went for another scramble today.  I had some portabellini mushrooms which look like this:

I am not always a fan of mushrooms.  They can seem too earthy and rubbery but occasionally they are exactly what I fancy and so it was today.  I am really enjoying kale so had some of that too.  And I was hungry hence the eggs.

It was so good.  2 eggs scrambled.

And the mushrooms seemed meaty rather than rubbery.  A tasty start to the day.

Lunch was aubergine parmigiana which I have made previously as posted about here.  Served with a simple green salad and vinaigrette.

I would have liked more cheese in it but this was healthier with a little less and we all enjoyed it.  Even James, who declares he dislikes aubergines, enjoyed a portion I had left for his supper.

Supper was a quick tuna sandwich.  The evening was rather rushed as I was going out but also wanted to go to Weight Watchers for the first time all year.  I weighed in and found I had lost a pound.  I was really pleased as it means I have lost the weight I believe I gained over Christmas (4 pounds) and a bit more so I am thrilled.  I really am back on track.  All that weighing, measuring and tracking worked and all the walking helped so I will do the same again this week.

After Fat Fighters I went to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with Lara and Abi.  We went to the The Picture House in Uckfield which was a delightful little cinema.  These little independent places are so much better than the giant Odeons and others of that ilk.  The film was fabulous and we all loved it.  The 2 main characters were perfectly cast and acted.  I was so relieved as having enjoyed the book (and now the second in the trilogy) so much I was prepared to be disappointed.  But that was not the case.  Salander was exactly as I had imagined her and Daniel Craig’s Blomkist was completely gorgeous.  I wonder if some facial piercings and a dragon tattoo would make me look urban, edgy and uber cool?

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Congratulations on being back on track and your Weigh-In success Zoe. It just goes to prove you can fall off the wagon, get back up and start again with results you like. Fall down 7 times; get up 8.
