Hello Heather. Welcome to the forum :)

Good luck with the caffine withdrawals.

My big tip is to take a look at CalorieKing. It has a database of all food, drinks, everything and tells you the calories for the food you eat. It also has a section of recipes. I have cooked them many times and they are delicious. Not only health for you, but very tasty as well.

Good morning everyone,

Well yesterday I went and bought some digital scalaes, cause it was too hard to get an accurate measurement off my old ones, and a calorie counter ( Allan Borushek's Pocket Calorie Fat and Carb counter). This little gem has some fantastic weight loss tips and lists foods by brand and even includes all the fast foods. Today I'm going to sit down with this and go through all my cupboards and find out what I can eats lots of, reasonable of and little of. I've found that some of the food that I thought was good to eat actually is high calorie and high fat.

Blew out on the walk yesterday ( crappy weather) but am pleased to say that I've lost 0.5kg and even though this is prob only fluid loss its still encouraging.

I don't like diet coke or those drinks with aspartum in them so I'm going to stick to water and fresh juice. I've started to eat breakfast again and feeling much better for it especially as I now eat less for luch and dinner. Although it was hard to watch the kids having their cheesecake for sweets and not having any myself ( just two weight watchers bikkies). Still its all for my own benefit.

0.5kg lost - 19.5kg to go.

Not a problem Heather :) I actually cook quite a bit of the CSIRO ones as well. I might start posting some of them.

Tonight is the mince & veggie pasta bake. FH was very jealous that i am cooking it as he is off in Melbourne until Monday night and loves it :)

Unfortunately my hubbie is very anti vege, just potatoes, peas and corn, although I love just about all veges. So with our meals veges are cooked separate. I'm learning to substitute fats and creams with low fat alternatives, and I'm finding the food diary a great booster, especially when I get to the after dinner stage and find I can have a couple of weight watchers bikkies with my evening cuppa. I think posting recipes is a great idea.
