Lunch is going to be a salad with potatoes and dinner could be pasta with meatballs or a ham and cheese bake?
It has taken years to accumulate the excess weight, and we are happy it is disappearing. Our success tells us that weight gain IS something we can avoid, and actively do something about. More importantly, we have found that because of the slow and steady progress, our weight is far more stable. Excessive weekends (like the last one) do not have the same impact as when I used to 'diet' - where the scales would show wild swings in weight. I would love to magic away the weight in an instant, as I am sure most people would, but I am content in the knowledge that our weight loss method works. Slowly but surely getting smaller (just like we slowly but surely got bigger). Being conscious of what we eat and learning about calories might seem a bit boring, but it is the key to losing weight. We're all worth the effort!
