Homemade pizza with cottage cheese!

Well, after doing my research on cheese a few days ago I thought why not take a look at what cottage cheese on a pizza tastes like (actually one of my followers challenged me to make it!). I do want to start by saying though if you do not already like cottage cheese, this is not going to make you …

Week 4

Current weight 14 stone 2…which is roughly 89.81kg or 198lbs, and I am happy with that! I went of for a Mexican last week and although I stopped eating when full, still feel I should have eaten less. That could have cost me more loss, but there is always next week. Today I want to talk about cheese! I introduced …

Homemade ‘pizza’ for lunch

I must admit that a friend (who has lost sooo much weight I should add) inspired me to create this homemade pizza taken from their slimming world diet (not her link one I just found so you get the idea). This is wrap pizza! And I have to say yum and I shall be having this one again when looking …

Cost effective snacks…and a mess…

Well, after popcorn gate the other day when I consumed a complete bag of popcorn (5 portions in one go was quite impressive) I decided now was the time to put my latest acquisition to test! I give you the £13.00 Groupon popcorn maker! (Plus £1.99 P&P) For me, remember it is not just about losing weight but also controlling …

Week 3

Current weight 14 stone 3… which is roughly 90.27kg or 199lbs and after the week I have had I am surprised it was only that. I have eaten breakfast out twice and lunch twice and in the evening once and although I would say I chose healthily and had no desserts, I have equally been more sedentary over the last …

Lunch…

Many have been asking what I do for my lunch at the moment. So here is one of the lunches I have. I am not a big eater of bread, not because it is carbs but because I can never eat a whole loaf on my own by the sell-by-date (and neither should I). So I eat either wraps, pitta …

Week 2

Current weight 14 stone 1.5lbs. which is roughly 89.5kg or 197.5lbs. Although slightly disappointed in myself for the lb gain…I also know why I gained weight and refuse to beat myself up over the gain. I am just disappointed I didn’t lose. Friday’s drinks did not help the case, but Sunday I over snacked due to boredom more than anything …

Drinking and choices.

Well, for me water is the best drink, and I personally like to have at least 3 litres a day starting from the moment I wake up. But I also know not everyone can knock back 3 litres a day. I do have the benefit of really liking water though which helps. I think if you can make 2 litres a …

Eating Out!

So today was the first time I have eaten out since I started this journey, and to be honest I eat out quite a lot, as I said I really like food. Today my friend and I went to Il Posticino a lovely Italian restaurant in Canterbury. They are a vegetarian I should add so chose according to their diet, I chose …

Struggling with temptations…

This morning has been most difficult, fact! And it would be useful to know how others deal with the need to eat for not relevant reason. That is, it is not breakfast, lunch or snack time and there is no reason you should be hungry. Today I ate my breakfast at about 8:30 maybe 9am. By 9:30 I was already …
