When I get to goal weight I shall experiment with breads to see if I can get away with a slice a day. Mind you, saying that, we don't seem to sell low carb bread around here (Sale). There used to be a Lidl in Salford where you could get low carb buns but I'm not sure if they still do them. There's no way I could make my own, I had to bake all my pancake mix in one big roasting dish to get rid of it, but the birds luv it. :D

@grovesy Wonder why they stopped? I would imagine they were very popular.

I seem to be taking over this thread. I hope not as I like to read what others are doing. I am such a LOUD mouth. :rolleyes:

Weight 14 6.2 Tum 49 1/2
Not long after getting up - 7.0 @ 7.30am / pint water / Nescafe
Brunch @ 11.30: can of Baxters pea and ham soup / pint water with meds / 6.2 @ 15.23
Dinner: pint water / an entire cauliflower! the whole bag of grated cheese, with cheese sauce from a packet and probably enough for at least three people / pint water

Wouldn't you think I'd be sick having all that? I was just a tad full which didn't last long and then I felt fine. No hope for me basically I'm just a greedy pig. I think I need to be taking my bg in a regular fashion to keep me accountable.

The stupid milkman didn't come with the eggs so I went from early dinner yesterday till gone 1 today and was ravenous so snack going round Tescos, pkt thin turkey slices, the checkout lady asked "Were you hungry?" :D
Brunch: tuna corn paste salad with beetroot, caesar dressing and an 'ancient' bun and potato salad and coleslaw / bowl Franks' diabetic ice cream / pint water with meds / Nescafe with single cream and a sweetener (with family while watching the biopic about the Man City German footballer who broke his neck and carried on playing! Cracker of a film).
Dinner: pint water / the rest of the salad and stuffs, it was too much to eat all at once... / pint water / 8.4 @ 23.02

A piggy day and I put a pound on overnight, not surprisingly. I won't do this again, silly.
