I was semi joking about it before, but I'm seriously about to look on the lite and easy website! Your results are great :)

My problem with these programs are I'm scared of being hungry, it being expensive and also still having to have food for my BF...

Sussing it out though!

Well done on your loss Wilmawalrus!!! :P

I can definitely recommend Lite N Easy too!
The meal portions are actually pretty decent.
I always thought I had big portion sizes... but according to Life N Easy I was right on.
And the majority of the meals are great! (Nice meat, not that gross meat they use in most frozen meals...)
I haven't been quite as strict as Wilma but I definitely want to be after these fantatic results!
Congrats Wilma!!

Thanks for the props Ali!

The good thing about Lite N Easy is that you can choose what level of calorie control you want to do - I'm doing 1200 cal/day, but they also have 1500 and 1800 cal/day plans. Depending on how you do it, you get snacks or include them (you work off a menu) - so I'm getting lunches and dinners from them, which includes an afternoon snack, and I just do whatever they have on the menu for breakfast and morning snack (or something similar).
I don't find it too expensive - I worked it out to be just under $8/meal. Oh, and my husband is doing the dinners, so we don't have to cook (just cooking for the kids, and mine are so fussy that they usually don't eat what we do anyway!)
He's lost a bit of weight too (but he's not weighing himself or being so strict about it).

I actually have to remind myself to eat the snacks (I don't usually snack, but I'm finding I am hungry between meals - not ravenous though). The dinner portions are a great size - fit an average pasta size bowl, and the food is very yummy, and varied.

Can't recommend it highly enough!

Just reading your thread and sounds like your doing great. Lite and easy is really working for you. Unfortunately i couldn't do lite & easy, can't afford to and fiance would be set against it. Was your old diet very different to the meals they supply?

I hadn't actually been dieting before doing this, but I guess it is portion control and ingredients combined. eg I had a chicken laksa for lunch today which was a small lunch size portion and it definitely didn't have coconut milk in it!

All the dinners are the same, so I am assuming that it is calorie control for breakfast and lunches. Also there is not much in the way of stuff like cheese, fried stuff etc. At any rate, whatever it is they are doing, it is very tasty food - just had a very tasty steak diane for dinner - yum!

PLATEAU!!!!

No loss this week - but no gain either :)
I haven't done anything differently this week, so there's nothing to blame it on, it's just a plateau.

All part of the ride, so I'm not letting it get to me.....I've had such a good run so far that this is to be expected.
Hopefully a big loss next week.

Good luck for everyone else's results!

Cheers, Lisa

Plateaus are SO hard....they're really disheartening, but if you can work through it, you're all the stronger!

You're right though, you didn't put on so it's all good :D It might be your body's way of telling you to up the anti!!

Just be patient and you'll be back on the losing streak!!

I think it's six weeks now Gumboots - yes, just in my seventh week as we speak.
Glad WW is going well for you.

Cheers, Lisa

Woo hoo (it's time for another woo hoo :D )

2kg this week - after a plateau week of NUTHIN, I'm extremely happy !!

Stepped up the exercise today - did a double circuit of the park, plus ran up and down a couple of little hills about 5 times each circuit - pooped!

Almost half way....I'm going to try some of my old trousers on soon, and see what I can get done up!

Hope everyone has a positive week.

Lisa xx :mrgreen:

It's always great to see a big loss after a no change or gain week! I guess it goes to show that perseverance pays off! Congrats :D
