Hiya Lassies,

Well, I popped into Kirsty`s today ....and she had made me a lovely lunch. Beautiful FREE soup(Scottish Slimmers), and a lovely pitta bread sandwich with salad and weight watchers tuna.

She started showing me her old Scottish Slimmers stuff.....u know the wee check book etc.

Sooooooooo, to cut a long story short....here I am, being good, eating my low fat diet and not deviating atttttt alllllllllllllllll, BUT according to that book....Im eating enough calories for all of us.... :lol: :lol: Im gutted by the way!!!

Anyhoo....Im round the road (home ) with all her wee books and off to asda later with OH, wee book in hand.. :roll:

Keep The Faith!!!

    Hey Skye,

    Yeah come on spill the beans :!: And no scooping 'em back up off the floor(only if they've got sausages in 'em!).

    When I went on the xenical website it said @ 1600 cals a day.

    TTFN Kal :wink:

    Hi Guys

    1500 - 1600 cals a day is about right, but I have noticed that quite a lot of 'low fat' food has lots of calories..... Skye was having say a packet of low fat noodles with her dinner which equated to nearly 350 cals, 3 Muller light yoghurts over the day at 100 cals each, if you add all these up thats over a 1/3rd of your daily calories!! Much better to fill up with fruit & veg and have the odd treat if you want.

    I have decided to make lots of 'free' soup which fills you up much better pm me if anyone wants some recipes

    K :lol:

    Hi Skye

    I have noticed that I am able to keep calories and fat from food under control but hey when it comes to those extras in wine I'm a born loser!!!!

    Am trying hard not to drink on schools nights but I',m a teacher on holiday so not much chance for a couple more weeks!!! :twisted:

    Keeping the faith

    Happy days

    Laups

    In all honesty, I must have been eating at least 500 upwards (but no more than 2500 calories).

    Wasn`t til Kirsty worked it all out in her wee book.... :shock:

    I was eating all low fat, and fruits etc, but when u add the calories up....its far too much - if u want to loose weight that is.... :lol:

    Today is a new day!!!! :D

    yep the map programme book warns you of that and shows you what to look out for on the label. I suppose the people who have been on diets on and off for alot of years know the kind of food to eat its just been able to alter it to make good menus to stop ya getting bored. I had a take away at the weekend but i looked for the meal that would be best out of what was available and i got spicy chicken with boiled rice it was lovely it would normally have been house special curry with half a portion of fried rice and half portion of chips. I must admi i am ready for some dreaded choc and pizza starting to look good. sad

    I have been soooooooo very bad over the last few days!!! :evil:

    My boyfs ex-farther in law took us out with his grandchildren on sat night to an absolutley amazing italian resturant in mancheshter, I had chicken and bacon risotto, now on its own that doesn't sound to bad but put that with the creamy garlic sauce, garlic bread and 2!!!!!yes 2!!!!!!!! enourmous glasses of red wine it sounds really naughty :oops:

    I just couldn't resist and for the last few days I have had some really nasty o/oil incidents :!:

    I have had a few other bad days as well recetly but I am trying to get back on the wagon! I guess it's cos I haven't lost anything for a quite a while and am feeling a bit depressed.

    Any way got to keep going.

    Chin up eveyone!!!
