Weight Loss Diary #1

As you all know I am trying to loose the rest of this pesky baby weight now, I am just sick of feeling horrible about myself, I don't feel comfortable in my clothes and I just don't like the way I am at the minute. So I think I have mentioned before I want to loose about 2st8 to be back down to my pre-pregnancy weight.
I don't want this to sound big headed or anything but I have never had to loose weight before so finding the motivation to do this is hard (and it doesn't help when you try to tempt me with KFC David!! ;) ) I just hope I can stick at it this time. I want people be like "Ohh have you lost weight Sarah" and tell me I am looking good. More importantly though I want to feel better about myself.

Today has been a good day I had a quick look at the Chantelle DVD but I think I need to keep building up on that, I did a bit today but I was out of puff so quick. The last time I did any real exercise was when David and I went to the gym and I can't even remember when the membership for that finished!

Food wise Breakfast was just a couple of Belvita biscuits as we didn't have anything proper in but I have bought some Sultana Bran now which I like. I went to Tesco and got some healthier foods. I am wanting to cut down on my bread so I have bought some pittas and tortilla wraps so I can have sandwiches with them as I find they don't leave me feeling as bloated. I also got some "good" snacks I got some Special K Cracker crisps and some of their Biscuit moments.

Before my dinner and tea I had the Skinny sprinkles with milk and I find they work better that way for me.

For dinner I made some Carrot and Coriander soup I was surprised how easy it was actually! All you need is

1 tsp vegetable oil
1 onion chopped
450g carrots sliced ( I guessed at the weight
1 Potato diced
1 tsp ground coriander
1.2lt vegetable stock (Forgot to get this so used chicken it tasted fine)
handful of fresh coriander chopped

First all you need to do it heat the oil in a pan and then add the onion as they are starting to soften add the carrot and potato and the ground coriander. After this add the stock to the pan and bring to boil. Then turn the heat down and allow to simmer for around 20minutes or until the carrots and potato has softened.

Then put it in a food processor with the fresh coriander and then whizz up until it is like a thick soup consistancy. I actually used Thomas's baby food blended but it worked perfectly.
The soup tasted lovely and with it being slightly thicker than normal soup I found it really filling I had it with 2 Ryebreads and you always need something to dip in soup. I also have 2 more batches for the Freezer to have on another day.

For tea we were meant to be having steak but it hadn't defrosted so we will be having that tomorrow. I ended up just having pasta with a bit of cheese which was actually nice just on its own, With a bit of lettuce, cucumber and peppers and then after I just had the last 2 Belvita biscuits in the pack and then a few of the cracker crisps and My fitness pal app says that I still have around 279 out of 1200 calories left.

It's still very early days but I can't wait until I see a change when I step on the scales.
