Long time since my last blog, with my operation and recovery all behind me now I feel a sense of achievement and one more life experience achieved. The operation itself was ok much better then I thought it would be. The staff at the BMI Hampshire clinic where amazing, no faults at all. 5 star care.

I managed to take off a stone and a half before my operation but added a few pounds back on.

Love it IKEA!! Very good.

This little recipe is amazing. Missing your Friday night curry? Well here is a dish that you will love.

The ingredients may seem a little strange but trust me the outcome is amazing.

Diced Onions (as many as you like)
Sliced Mushrooms (again, use as many as you like)
2 x Mushy Peas (tins)
1 x Baked Beans (tin)
2 x Chopped Tomato’s (tins)
1 Tablespoon Chili powder
1 Heaped Tablespoon of Curry powder

This is a slimming world recipe that I’d learned from other members and I tend to use it maybe twice a month if not more.

I have been told that it freezes well and tastes better but I’m yet to try this because it never lasts that long.


Weight in

Posted: September 1, 2014 in Weight Loss Journey Blog

Today was weight in and really didn’t expect to see a good resault due to a few meals out and having a week off from Weight in.

Well I think this is why eating real foods and leaning about whats right and whats not will alway stick with you even if your not expect it.

This week I lost 4 lbs and it was a real shock.

I find it hard still at this stage learning when my tummy is full.

Tonights meal was two small jacket potatoes with a tin of baked beans with lean ham chunks and 3 fried eggs all cooked low fat of course using fry-light as per my previous blog.

I was stuffed full and maybe a little too much,  however everything I had was syn (Slimming world value) free.

Today I also started using myfitnesspal (smartphone) app to help recognise how much I had taken in. I was surprised that I was only about 12 cal out from what they would recommend as a daily target so feel quite happy about that.

Big thumbs up today…. keeping inspired!!
