@TinaD really impressed with your eating day. 8 carbs is very low imho, you should aim for at least 20 like on Atkins Induction. Are you trying to lose weight then? I might have missed that.

Weight 14 7.4 Tum 49 1/2
Not long after getting up - 6.8 @ 8.03am / pint water / Nescafe
Brunch @ 11ish: 2 hard boiled eggs / pint water with meds / pkt chicken slices at the bus-stop as desperate to eat...
Dinner @ 3ish: 1 chicken breast, roast veggies (mostly peppers and baby toms) / pint water / 7.7 @ 21.37
/ pint water / fried eggs with the leftover roast veggies as constantly craving and hungry because of eating nasty carbs earlier in the week... so not worth it for the angst afterwards, I always forget that in the moment.

Wednesday - A horrid craving day. :( Like every day really, but some are worse than others. My dinner was huge, far too much food for somebody trying to lose weight and be healthy, I've just put 'tons' tomatoes because I'm too ashamed to say how many I actually had! 1614867947452.png

For the first time since diagnosis last November, I broke my diet. Only a little, but, ohhh was it worth it.

Yesterday my wife asked me to cook a mixed grill, fillet steak, lambs liver, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms cooked in butter, drained, grilled. Soooo nice, but careful, smaller portion sizes for me.

Nothing broke the diet bank bar the calories and they were only up about 150KCal.

Now back to the strict diet.

I found having the odd treat helped me stick to my diet . I lost over 7 stone and have kept it off for over a year now ... walking 3 dogs does help

Can't post, it would be a double post! :( Somebody post! :D

I was too cocky. I can't get on track with the losing weight thing. How hard can it be to lose two pounds a week? That should be doable. :( Wasn't online neither and this thread keeps me accountable.

You're 'allowed' to go up by at least 2 I'm sure @RirisR aren't you? I don't think 3's too bad if you came back down in a timely manner. :)
