This was a bad Easter this year and I gained a bit of weight (about 2 kilos, I think), so it's back to weight loss mode for a few weeks. I had a barbecue last night, too. I had 1 very small steak (with the fat cut off, of course!), 1 sausage, 2 chicken wings, a 50g potato and some salad. My stomach was hurting afterwards! All of this was planned for, though and I stayed within my calorie range. I ate just 1519 calories yesterday. The sausage always causes fluid retention with me, so I will weigh myself next Tuesday and will record whatever weight I have gained over Easter. I'm going out tonight at Maldini's, too and I am going to be a good girl no matter what happens!!! I have already planned my meals-I am either going to have the 'Crispy skinned Atlantic salmon on smashed créme fraîche pinkeyes with a tomato, green olive & lemon salsa'-about 580 calories (I had to do the calculating myself) depending on how much créme fraîche they give me, or the 'Pan-roasted chicken breast stuffed with semi-dried tomatoes, ricotta & baby spinach on a roasted pumpkin & rocket salad with balsamic glaze' (about 470 calories). I planned for Tiramisu as well. If I have the salmon, I will have half (around 250 calories) of the tiramisu, or if I have the chicken, I planned for 3/4 (around 383 calories). I want the fish, because I hardly ever eat fish and I need the Omega 3's, but I am also worried about the calories in the créme fraîche and the potatoes. But no matter what I decide, I will be a good girl and I won't go over my calorie range!

OMG!!!! I have finally managed to shift that half a kilo and now I have reached my goal weight!! And I weighed myself after breakfast! I had a large steak last night too! So, when I weighed myself this morning, I also weighed my oats, tea, cupcake (a planned for treat), an apple AND last night’s steak with potatoes and butter covered corn-on-the-cob!! I thought I would have put on half a kilo overnight just because of that one piece steak! It was HUGE! I'm very surprised!! I can't believe that after all this time I have finally managed it! It was a long road full of ups (in weight as well) and downs, but I got there in the end!!
Now for the next phase.....
I will try to maintain a slight calorie differential for a week or so and slowly build up my food intake to let my body get used to eating more. I will have the occasional planned treat, but I will try not eat too much bad foods. This will be a bit difficult this week because of Easter, but when it's over I will have little trouble sticking to a healthy diet. I will eat more lean red meat, nuts, eggs, fish and healthy oils. I will also try to cook from recipe books!! There are a lot of recipes I want to try! I have just been making my own random stuff. My dad has collected a lot of mini cook books from the Australian Women's Weekly (They are sold separately, if you think my dad is a girly man!! ). My fav is the Healthy Eating-Chicken! I LOVE chicken! I'm going to get some more from the newsagents, too! I saw a Japanese cooking one, which I want to try! Most of them have the nutritional information with the recipes. Some don't, but it’s no trouble using the recipe calculator. I have also cut back on exercise by half a couple of weeks ago, so I won't need to stuff myself to make sure I'm eating enough. I was exercising way too much and It was affecting my health! So no over exercising for me, either. Doctor’s orders!!
Oh, and I won’t be eating steak every night!!
