What did you eat today weight loss thread

Partially inspired by last years epic “what did you eat today” thread, anyone up for restarting one specifically in this section as a way of holding ourselves to account? No matter what your method of weight loss is....

I’m WI tomorrow for the first time in a month and know it won’t be pretty, going to ease myself in with 16:8 for a week and then adjust to either 1200kcal a day or back to 2 fast days a week. Anticipate having about 10lbs to lose.

Today was terrible but I did a transatlantic flight across several time zones so eating was buggered - I’ll start properly tomorrow!

this is a Good Idea

Yesterday
Some kind of overnight bircher muesli thing
Homemade minestrone (farro wheat instead of pasta)
(so far so good yeah?)
A big lump of cheshire cheese
A carrot
A tangerine
Some walnuts
A massive packet of those hummus chips things from the health food shop
A lindor truffle

ie no proper evening meal and a ton of picking at things with no sense of what is being consumed.

Today so far:
chia seed, horchata, almonds and pear
black coffee, green tea

DavetheCat2001 Thu 04-Jan-18 12:19:04

Excellent! I’m 8 hours behind so will be a while before I post today but DH is out tonight and tomorrow so can at least just do simple soups for me to reset a bit

Would love to know if you’re all maintaining or losing and how?

whiteonesugar Thu 04-Jan-18 16:45:12

I am attempting to lose! lowering carbs and general intake and upping activity.

@DeliveredByKiki where did you get the soy creamer?

I'm trying to cut back from today, my children don't even go back to school until Wednesday so I can't go back swimming until then either (even though my costume won't fit).

Today I've had a bowl of homemade vegan cream of sweetcorn soup with oatcakes. It is so nice and really cheap as I used Frozen sweetcorn (tesco finest £1).
I'm going to do what works best for me which is one large meal every 24hrs (eat/sleep/eat). I don't drink anything other than water so I'm going through jugs of it filled with frozen limes.
