Hi Shelley! Just a couple of quick questions :) how do you find optifast? I'm thinking of trying it for breakfast and lunch because I can never think of what to have and it would be easy to take to uni. Do you find it filling? Also, have you tried the soup or the other flavours?

All the best for your challenge too! You seem to have it pretty sorted so no doubt you'll be hitting all your goals!

Thanks,

Kitty

Hey Kitty! Sorry for the late reply, I missed this thread for a few days!

I find Optifast really good :D The vanilla and chocolate shakes are my favourite although I prefer the vanilla ones better now, chocolate can get a bit too much sometimes as it has a stronger flavour. With my brekky shake I've started to have mixed frozen berries in it to spice things up a bit, makes a seriously yummy smoothie :) I have the shake for lunch as well and couple it with some vegetables as well (you could just cut up some carrot sticks, beans and celery if you are on the go at uni) and I find I don't really get that hungry! I haven't tried the soups but they look pretty scary to me :P And they are so ridiculously expensive that it doesn't seem worth it. Instead I make my own cauliflower soup which is just vegetables, herbs and salt and pepper and it tastes fantastic! And because it is just vegetables, I'm still able to have a shake at night as well as the soup which is nice and filling with no late night cravings :)

And thanks Kitty, I'm pretty determined to make this stick! So over starting then stopping and putting on more weight. Really feel this year is my year :) All the best with the shakes Kitty and if you have any questions, feel free to PM me! :)

Thought I may as well put in this weekend's intake as well!

Thursday and Friday went off without a hitch. Now for Saturday!

Breakfast:

1x bigger loser breakfast bar
1x bag of apple pieces and a couple of grapes
1x large english breakfast tea on skim milk

Lunch:

Cream of chicken soup
1x soy and linseed bread roll

Dinner:

Just had the yummiest stir fry!

Beef strips with marinade (soy sauce, lime juice, tobasco sauce and honey) with snow peas, red cabbage, onion, red capsicum, brocolli, zuchinni and carrot and half of one of those microwave packs of wholegrain rice YUM! Probably a bit carby with the rice but boy, it was amazing!

Currently cooking up some granola (oats, honey, cinnamon, sultanas and slivered almonds in the oven to have with a vanilla fruche later on. More calories than I usually eat daily but still not too bad and healthier options (I think if I didn't make the granola I would be sooo cranky as I'm craving something sweet and there is left over toblerone in my fridge that I have avoided since I started losing weight again and didn't want to eat it :shock: )

So, granola it is ;)

Eeeeek! Had some of the granola but it was way too rich with the yoghurt so I threw it out. Instead I ended up having 3 sour cream and chives rice cakes and some seaweed sakatas :shock:

Today wasn't as bad as I got up late and didn't have breakfast.

Lunch:

Small tin of baked beans in tomato sauce and two slices of wholemeal toast

Dinner:

Cup o soup: Creamy chicken and noodle

Granola for a snack (cup of oats, 1/4 cup of honey, two handfuls of sultanas, cinnamon, a dash of olive oil and a sprinkling of almond slivers. Ate half of it for arvo tea and just had the other half now :shock: )

A weight watcher's hot choccy

I think I am still just within cals for the day but at least I made healthier options and didn't reach for the choccy!! :mrgreen: But to it 100% tomorrow!
