The sum total of dinner yesterday! WOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!

I am thrilled, I finally have really good restriction, and I am hoping that things are going to really get going on the downward slope.

This was a really lovely stew - beef, red wine, tomato, olives & carrots and some thick beef stock. Really hearty and served with boiled spuds. Mmmm. 2 weeks ago I would have tucked into 4 times this amount no worries.

So yesterday was a good day again. I had 2 shakes during the day, the beef stew for dinner and a slice (albeit thick!) of cheese with some tasty humous for a snack in the evening.

I spent most of the day sat at the computer doing my accounts and groping about for things I am allowed to claim for, then stumbled on a site that listed them all and found that I had been really short changing myself for the last couple of years. Yay! Its not normal for me to find something going in my favour for a change...

Fill #13 is working wonders, I find things to help with my tax, I get 2 nice pressies from my Mum and Mother in Law out of the blue, DS's maths age has increased by 6 months in 5 weeks and all is right with my little portion of the world...

13 - Unlucky for some... but not me!


  1. Yay :)I'm glad things are right with the world for you!! Nice looking stew by the way :) I need to get creative with the dinner thing.


  2. That is a picture perfect portion size! Looks like the band is working for you! YAY!

  3. Yay for the tax and for the fill :) Keep up the stupendous work!
