Have been eating WW ready meals since I started but now want to start cooking my meals from scratch and know what is going into them. Done a menu for this week and looking forward to something different.



On a Saturday I do the menu and the shopping list to go with it, as we shop on a Sunday, I find I stick to the same as I know they are fine but have started to be a bit more adventurous and have used the 7 day SW menu this week with a few alterations, well done for your loss too )t'

That is so organised of you Perchy and Mrs B. I am generally not entirely sure what I am having for dinner until it is on my plate }hairout{

And as for food shopping - when I absolutely have to. I am rubbish at routine :oops:

Helen when you are seriously dieting you dream about your next meal {rofwl}

I try to go once a week and get everything for that week, sometimes I need more salad etc, but generally it lasts for the week if I plan it, and more economical )t'

When I am doing it properly I am exactly the same - food becomes the most important thing in the world! I found that the weeks I planned meals and shopped accordingly I lost more weight and the shopping was a lot cheaper - I really must get back into that routine!

Well done Mrs Boodles {hug}

It does save money when you plan all your meals for the week - being organised does help with losing weight and saving money as well!

I've found a new way of doing it. I'm house-sitting for friends and their cupboards are so high on the wall I can't reach the food!

I lost again this week but if I am completely honest, its a bit of a chore this week. Made a WW dinner the other night and it was disgusting, neither Natalie or I could eat it. Ended up in food compost bin and us having a sandwich.

Dreaming of nice plate of fish and chips or a fry up with all the works.

I have put on half a stone since Xmas, which I needed to do really, but unfortunately it's not from healthy eating, but from junk food and wine! :oops:

Must try harder }hairout{

I have lost a 1lb this week, so I am going onto the boost for a week, just meat and veg or quorn for main meals, I have a feeling it is to do with a bottle of Baileys that lives near the kettle and coffee and Baileys yike* it has been put away now )t'

I have started to feel a difference with my clothes around the waist so that's good, onwards and upwards {rofwl}

Well done Julie )c( Must be a boost for you!

Perchy, baileys will do it every time!!! Mind you, you still lost 1lb, and if you did that every week, that would be almost 4 stone in a year! Not too shabby huh?!!
