Hope it's ok if I keep a low carb food diary here?

Anyone wanting to comment on my meals, please feel free. I don't want the pressure of joining bootcamp, just want to try and watch what I eat.

Yesterday I had

Breakfast - 3 scrambled eggs with butter, 1 black decaff instant coffee
Lunch - a pack of tikka chicken pieces and a small salad with a little caesar dressing
Dinner - fried beef medaillons with a little peppercorn and cream sauce, green beans with butter, roasted veg (cherry tomatoes, red peppers, onions in olive oil) and some fried mushrooms.
Snack - a knob of butter with marmite!

I had about 5 black decaff instant coffees, one with a spot of cream after dinner and drank about 1.5 litres of water on top of that.

I didn't have a chance to exercise due to working long hours (sitting at my desk).

Can I ask how much you have to lose? I'm about a stone over weight but there is seriously no point me starting till kids go back to school and I'm back in a routine.

I need to lose about 1.5 stone I think.

At the moment I'm doing well. Today I wore some jeans I haven't worn for over a year because they were too tight. I've lost a couple of inches round my waist I think.

I need to lose more, I'm going to a wedding and need to fit into a dress I want to wear.

Theoldcauliflower Sat 15-Aug-15 10:12:01

I'm lying down to do my jeans up at the momentblush

mine are still tight too - but better than they were.

Today I had 4 x eggs scrambled for breakfast, a couple of chips and a mouthful of cake and a - very sweet - iced coffee for lunch, dinner will be steak with fried mushrooms, salad and stilton sauce.

To drink I've had half a pint of lager, lots of black decaf, a small cappuccino and a litre of water so far.

I didn't feel great today, so didn't really eat much.

Brunch was 3 scrambled eggs
Dinner was spicy chicken - tomato sauce with a few green beans.
As a snack a couple of slices of salami

Lots of peppermint tea and water.
