I gave up sugar. I gave up dairy. I gave up alcohol. I gave up wheat. 1 week later I had also given up 8 pounds of fat. Yes, I weighed 8 pounds less tonight than I did this time last week. I am so delighted. The diet mojo is back 🙂
Breakfast; leftovers from dinner last night. I could have eaten all of this last night but I am trying really hard to eat less so I put a portion aside for breakfast today. Brown Basmati rice, mushrooms, red pepper, spinach, kale and roast pork with a little soy sauce and Cholulah. Nothing weird about eating stir fried pork, rice and vegetables for breakfast !
The sun was out briefly at lunch time. Still windy though which is becoming very annoying. Lunch was a salad. Chicken and prawns with lettuce, roasted peppers, bean sprouts, cashew nuts and a spicy Thai dressing.Before dinner I went to the Leisure Centre to be weighed. I knew I had been good so I was very optimistic. It was still a huge relief to see those numbers coming up on the scales. I raced home to share my good news with my supportive family and had a celebratory sweet treat – an apple 🙂
Dinner; half a baked potato, a large dollop of my homemade hummus, some minced beef cooked with onion, red pepper and lots of spinach plus a side salad made with pea shoots, salad leaves, celery and tomatoes.
I am very happy.
