Day 6- keep going!

I found yesterday hard- especially the evening. Apparently Day 5 is notoriously hard when changing your eating habits for the better.
The evenings have always been my worst times for eating anyway. I've never had to worry about over-eating or binge-eating in secret as my husband always eats far too much anyway. So there's no ''shame'' in over-eating. In fact it's since meeting him 12 years ago that I started eating more than I should.

I'm trying to mostly eat soups for lunch rather than my usual sandwich. I've heard a lot of people talk of the benefits of cutting down on bread so I'm giving it a go and aiming to eat bread no more than twice a week.

I'm planning on having steak and chips for dinner tomorrow. It will be the heaviest meal I've had this week so being that it's the evening before my weigh in I hope it doesn't ruin my loss.
I'm only going to eat a small amount of steak and, for the first time ever, I will attempt to make my own chips and oven cook them with that 1 calorie cooking spray. Will see how that turns out!


  1. cutting out bad carbs (white rice/bread/potato ect) does help alot.. Im going to cut down on carbs too!

    Ps: I saw the add on MFP - it you want, it's possible to have an open diary, that way it's harder to "cheat"..

    Oh and having a day a week where you can eat what you want should make it so much easier to stick to the plan for the rest of the week (just make sure you don't go too "wild" and get back on track the next day)

  2. Yes, I turned off the diary thing as it kept telling me off for eating too few calories! haha But as of Monday I will be eating the recommended 1200 cal so I'll put it back then. :D
