Hi all smile

I lost over a stone and a half of baby weight in 2016 through eating well and exercising regularly. I cant exercise quite as regularly now so and have been lax so the weight is slowly creeping on - I would like to lose a stone - I'm 5ft 4 and just over 11st at the mo, 10st is my goal. My lowest weight to date was 10st 6lb, so i know i can get there at least!

I'm after some inspiration for meals. I am using MFP and lowering my carb intake as thats what works for me. I'm trying not to increase fat too much.

for example today my meals are;

porridge with banana and honey
coffee

Soup, apple and greek yoghurt

bolognese boats (which is basically hollowed out courgette with bolognese sauce and cheese on top) with salad.

I am pretty good with meals but find myself making the same thing a lot.

Any ideas?!

The Low-Carb Bootcamp board has a recipe thread that you might like: https://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/lowcarbb_bootcamp/1447493-Bootcamp-Recipe-Thread HTH

Vegetable curry, chicken and vegetables, Steak with sweet potatoes and veg, Stew/bourginion/casserole with extra veg.

I find breakfast the hardest. What do you eat other than porridge?

Bolognese boats sound lovely!

I am having a low carb wrap for tea - replace the normal tortilla with a really thin omelette, and then fill with chicken & salad or whatever.

I often have eggs for breakfast too, or Greek yoghurt and berries.

hidinginthenightgarden - Weekends I tend to have eggs for breakfast, or yoghurt with fruit, I find breakfast hard cos i love a slice of toast! Sometimes I will have a small slice of that little hovis wholemeal loaf toasted with my eggs and add some mushrooms or something. I fancy that tomorrow actually (day off).

AnotherOtter thank you thats great.

My bolognese boats last night were lovely!

Ive had apple and cinnamon porridge for breakfast and got boiled egg and smoked salmon salad for lunch - might need to get something to go with it to fill me up a bit.

Dinner is fajitas, having one wrap and loads of salad with it. and 0% greek yog instead of sour cream.
