Another day down and another good eating day. I feel conscious of my body and how it feels and how I am helping it... I can't quite describe it, but I know that I am doing it good - if that makes sense. I feel in a completely different mood towards my band and my weightloss and I think -dare I say - I am ready to finish this thing and uncover the real me.
I feel positive and happy and confident that this I Will succeed with the help of my band.
So food today:
*2 ryvita goodness bars
*jacket potato with home made veg chilli and salad
*lentil and pancetta soup from tesco (yum!) 1&1/2 syns
veg chilli recipe: (nice and wet for us bandsters)
1 onion finely chopped and 'fryed' in water until soft
3 cloves garlic crushed and 'fryed' with the onion once it has softened
1 red pepper finely chopped and added to onion/garlic mix
1 can of chopped tomato - blended to a passata and added to the mix.
2 cans of red kidney beans added
4 tablespoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
2 tsp ground black pepper (for the heat)
2 teaspoons sugar
