Monday and Tuesday I had tom yum soup with vegetables and shirataki noodles (about 100-110 calories) for lunch.

Monday's dinner was actifried butternut, baked beans and smoked breakfast sausage (885cal, and most of that was because had 3x as much sausage as I actually planned on having).

Monday evening I attempted week1 session one of c25k again... I barely made it half-way which is depressing. But it's a start. I will get back to where I was.

Dinner on Tuesday was Sushi and Thai (Yes Emma, that restaurant again), I had to estimate most of it, and lets just say the result was eye watering (3000+ calories, and that was with me intentionally avoiding most of the deep fried stuff)...

BUT it was just one meal...

Yesterday I had sausage and Mash (ready meal) with added veggies, for my lunch. A massive (in comparison to the tom yum soup anyway)480cal. I have to change up the hot and sour occasionally. But the plan to have shirataki most days seems to be working.

I also snacked on a honeydew melon. (200cal)

Dinner was yet another ready meal, count on us Ricotta and spinach cannelloni X2 I was being greedy, I only really needed half this, but I love spinach and ricotta cannelloni, with 2 veggie filled red peppers and salad 875cal... And if I had left it at that I would've actually bought my calories for the week back below what I needed them to be to meet my weekly calorie goals despite Tuesday's dinner..

Sadly that did not happen (750cal of Ben & Jerry's did).

Tom yum again today (97cal) and I even remembered to grab some lemon juice to make it properly sour!!!

I plan on having butternut, beans and breakfast sausage for dinner tonight (because I have 700g of butternut sitting in the fridge needing to be used), which will actually being me back down to a 2100cal a day average (actually somewhat below it, but given just how much of an estimate that Thai was I don't have a problem with that).

Apparently 2100cal a day is what I need to reach to lose 2lb a week (according to MFP), & according to the scale this morning I'm about 7.6lb lighter than I was Friday last week, but as we all know that's mostly water being the first weigh-in.

My trousers and shirt do feel like they are fitting better (the jeans aren't cutting into me as much, and the t-shirt isn't sticking to me or riding up excessively.

Haha, that's not too food pornish is it? You can see my beloved shirataki noodles (love those bundled ones, so much easier to deal with for soup), and all that hot hot chilli oil bubbled on the top.
