Our planned meals for the week - being prepared

Half the battle with losing weight, is knowing what we are going to eat.  Once we know - it becomes simple.  Yesterday we worked out what we wanted to eat for the next 3 days, especially as these days are our 'good' days.

Today we are having carrot and coriander soup (our own - from the freezer) and a cheese sandwich for lunch.  For our evening meal we're making cajun chicken breast and serving this with new potatoes and a watercress salad.

Tuesday, we've opted for a cheese and mushroom omelette with salad and toast for lunch.  Dinner will be the lamb we had on Sunday.  I'll cook this thoroughly in the oven for an hour or so and serve it hot.  We'll have some new potatoes, left over gravy and lots of veg.  Notice there are no roast potatoes this time!!

Wednesday we are having a tuna, egg & potato salad for lunch, and some butternut squash ravioli served with sage butter for dinner.  Again, the ravioli was home made and it's sitting in the freezer waiting to be eaten.

If you can't prepare the food from scratch, it's not an issue.  Just work out the number of calories you fancy eating on your 'good' days.  I usually have 1400 -1500 and my partner aims for 1800 - 2000.  This means we are eating around 500 calories below a normal allowance.  Our short walks add up over the week, and all in all, we hope to achieve a weight loss of about 1/2 lb to one pound per week.  Believe me, these things DO add up over time - we are proof of that.  More importantly, it stays off.  What more can we ask!
