    Does that even make sense?!
    It's stupid isn't it! kJs are "roughly" 4x more than calories, so I am just dividing everything by 4... a bit cheeky, but it's pretty accurate. 😊

    Okay, I am finally on my lap top...

    So, I am babylove81 and I LOVE food!!! LOL...

    I need/want to lose between 15-20kg... I currently weigh around 73kg (although it was 72.6 this morning, yay)...

    I was going to do the Michelle Bridges 12WBT, however I'm not certain I can commit to that just yet; I did buy her book though "Losing the Last 5 Kilos", which is basically a 4 week eating/exercise plan much like her 12WBT... so I was going to pretty much follow that, and I went grocery shopping yesterday and may have bought maybe a quarter of her first week's menu list and it cost me a bomb!! So, I won't be following that to a tee either, although I did make the quinoa porridge this morning (which was different) and I made the 4 egg white omelette for lunch... I think for me just counting the calories will make a big difference.

    I have also had a coffee and two cups of tea so far today, and... I'm STARVING!!! LOL... I love herbal teas and have also stopped having sugar in my coffee.

    Yesterday and today, I went for a 2km walk doing kindy drop off.

    I also agree with PP, that the full fat stuff is better than the low fat stuff.

    I read earlier that a Freddo frog is 79 calories, so I might have one of them and celery and ricotta/hummus for A/T... then spag bol for dinner. And another cuppa, LOL.

    I am such a sweet tooth, and am struggling with not stuffing my face with yummy scrumptious food, really hoping my body and mind get used this quick smart! I also read that 4 pieces of Cadbury chocolate is 120 calories, so 'could' have that as a snack too, if I needed too, LOL...

    I need to get up and do some housework, and keep busy and keep my mind off eating! I also want to buy a second hand treadmill and do some more walking on that. And start swimming about 20 laps in our pool every few days, we'll see how that progresses.

    That's all for now... I do have a habit of babbling on, so just tell me to shut up if it gets too boring!

Also agree keep your mind off eating, if I think about it too much I swear I make myself hungry when I'm not!

    I just thought of something for those who love carbs, I used to be a big pasta and rice lover as well. These days I make cauliflower rice to have with stir fries, curries, pasta sauces - basically anything I used to have rice or pasta with. I make it one of two ways, depending on what I can be bothered doing. The first is to process raw cauli and some onion (I just use my stick mixer with the chopper attachment) until fine, then cook in a non stick pan for a few minutes until slightly browned. The second one is more of a cauli mash, I steam the cauli first then put in my stick mixer with chopper attachment and puree it. Can add a dash of milk or cream cheese to make it creamier which is nice with things like bolognaise sauce.
    Oh what a fantastic idea! I am making meatballs with bolognaise sauce tonight and was making them with pasta for the kids but was just going to have them with a salad for myself.. now I will serve mine over cauliflour I considered a little rice would also go well, but I already had rice in the sushi I had for lunch today. Yay, I'm excited for my dinner now I LOVE stuff like mashed potato as well, so I'm really happy to try the cauli as an alternative. I will be back later and let you know how it goes tonight

    What was the cauliflower mash like?

    We are having steamed minted chicken with brocolini and baby carrots (if it works). And I've walked 4km today. Yay, me!

    It was so good! I love vegies anyway and it went beautifully with meatballs and bolognaise sauce. All I added to it was a bit of skim milk as I mashed it. Such a great substitute for mash potato

    Today I ate
    2 eggs
    Rice paper rolls with prawn
    Bacon and eggs
    Sugar free dark chocolate
    Slow roasted Pork belly
    Tea and coffee

    I try to stick to 20g of carbs per day (or less). I would have gone close today, it's hard to know exactly what the carb count was in the rice paper rolls as they didn't have nutritional info.

    For those who have a sweet tooth and are trying to stick to low carb, I recommend trying the atkins milk chocolate. You can get them at coles and woolworths. It is 30g of milk chocolate with 2.5g of carbs and 142 calories. As a chocoholic I can say that they taste really good. I have snacked on these as part of a low carb diet since I had bubs 6 months ago and have lost 16kg

    If lots of food labels have kj count then it might be better for you to count kj. It doesn't matter which one you do they are both a measure of the energy in food.
