As I said in the New Years Resolution thread I ahve started to try and loose weight again!!!

I went back to Slimming world last Wednesday Very Happy

And so far I have been doing really well. I am off work just now with Joe so I ahve been spending the time baking and experimenting so I know what I like and what is quick and easy to do when I go back to work

Today I made a meat loaf and some blueberry muffins (3syns each) and they were yummy Thumbs Up

Good on you (or should I say off you haha). It feels so good when you start to get in shape and this is a great time of year as you can focuss on summer time and how much better you'll look and feel in your summer clothes xx

Keep taking it slow, that way it is easier to keep the weight off, you need a full tummy for it to work in the long term, 8lbs is really good on you, well done.

I've never had meat loaf, what kind did you make, is there more than one kind? I've been good for ages now, I started putting weight back on a for quite a while now because I've been exercising and sexercising a lot. I've been using the school gym, it is free for staff, which has been ace really, as otherwise it is too pricey, Frank bought some weights recently so I've been using them as well, Mike's keeps saying that I have boobies!

I have made 2 different kinds now. This weeks one is:-

1lb mince
1 small carrot grated
1 small onion finely chopped
1 Med toato finely chopped
mixed herbs
salt and black pepper
1 egg

MIx all together, put in a 1lb loaf tin and cook for about 1 hour at 190


LAst weeks one was very different (it had hard boiled eggs through the middle) I will give you he recipe when I get it back from my friend Very Happy

I like them because they are great hot with pots and veg (and a little gravy) and the left overs are good cold with salad Thumbs Up

Congrats. Keep up the good work. So far this year 0 lbs for me. But they do say muscle is heavier than fat, so I'm going to stick with that as my excuse. Otherwise why am I going to the gym 4-5 times a week??

Quite pleased with my loss, had a bad week and really expected to put some on. Going to be really good all week, so I can hopefully get my stone next week (but I do have a night out on Saturday!!) Embarassed
