My chicken stir fry with noodles was yummy

Made enough for two so will either eat later this week or freeze

Off to bed. Let’s hope all our children are better /no waking /sick / colds etc

It’s 7w tomorrow to Xmas day

So if we lost a lb weekly that’s half a stone
2lbs a week and a stone Before Xmas

Would be nice to shift a stone but would be happy with half a stone

For any newbies wi for me is a Friday

Hello! Weigh in for me tomorrow - I am going it online

Anyway i have 2 more nights out: tomorrow i have requested sushi, thurs is Lebanese so i will have grilled meats, salad and hummus (and no more booze!)

Lost 13lbs so far

The cheesy chicken risotto is from the take 5 book,

4 chicken breasts diced
350g risotto rice
2 leeks sliced
1.2l chicken stock
3 or 4 tbsp Parmesan (I add roughly 70g so it’s 1/2 HEA per portion)

Cook chicken for 5 mins, add the rice and stock, cook for a further 10 mins, add the leeks, season, cook for 15 mins or until the rice comes together and the stock has reduced well. Then add the Parmesan. The recipe says to sprinkle it on top once served but I Like it mixed in 😋

For any newbies...I'm at target lost 6st. Which means I get more healthy extras and more syns as part of the target plan. Weigh day is Tuesdays.

Thanks for the new thread @Blondeshavemorefun

@FiveNightsAtMummys that is amazing! You are an inspiration. I lost 2lb on Monday, very pleased with that seeing as I was away for the week - although did still good optimise. Really enjoying trying out some new recipes.

TigerJoy Wed 06-Nov-19 14:26:57

Well done @troppibambini and @JBFletcherismyaunt!

I weighed myself and I'm the same as last week. Not sure whether to log it online or wait until tomorrow to see if there's a better result?

Bit depressing as I'd lost 2 lbs earlier in the week and they came back on with the slightest slip...If I log this weight it'll be 2lbs down from last week, but only because I weighed in the morning not the evening.

Feeling dispirited today

B - bacon medallions, 2 eggs, baked beans
L - Itsu chicken noodle soup which is 300cals so unknown syns but morally shoudn't be too much!
D - sushi, syns for miso soup (3), nigiri (2?)

S - not yet known. trying to resist a hotel chocolat hot chocolat

FiveNightsAtMummys Wed 06-Nov-19 14:34:51

Tiger weigh at same time every week. I can weigh several lbs more on an evening. Or if I've had a lot of carbs night before i know i will weigh more next day. Even if I've done a big walk I can gain next day from a little water retention. So theres many reason you might weigh more, it'll even out.

Lubilu28 Wed 06-Nov-19 16:06:19

Breakfast - ready brek (HEB), strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and sweet freedom fruit syrup (1 syn)

Lunch - left over cheesy chicken risotto

Snack - light and free yogurt (1 syn), apple, hifi bar (3 syns), 1 twirl finger (5.5 syns)

Dinner - chicken sausage (2 syns), bean and potato hot pot with green beans and broccoli

Pud - banana and Greek yogurt

Total syns - 12.5

I know I have to weigh at the same time, but group was at 6pm. I already weigh myself every morning and I'd rather do that and switch otherwise my weight will vary wildly as to whether I've weighed before or after dinner. It should all even out
