I'm currently doing stuffed potatoes for lunch (only eat one half for lunch though) but if you are trying to cut out carbs, that's not really going to work for you.
veggie sticks and dip is yummy. I made my own eggplant dip recently, was soooo good.
frittata is another great idea as someone else mentioned. just make a batch on a Sunday evening and cut it into slices to take for lunch each day.

@TortoiseNotTheHare don't be down on yourself. Weight fluctuates daily that's why it's best not to weigh in too often, especially when AF is due.
Just let it motivate you. Well done on your workout tonight!

I'm due for AF too. So not sure about this weeks weightloss. For lunch, I've been taking a vege bake - just whatever veg I have with a tin of tomatoes over the top and some crumbled feta. Last night I added chickpeas. Roast in oven for 30-40 then reheat in microwave at work. Yum

TTC and weight loss
Thanks @GemimaPuddleduck 😊
As you all know I'm trying to lose this weight so DP and I can start TTC so that's great motivation. Sometimes I make some "bad" choices so to keep myself in line I've decided to adopt the "will this make the boat go faster?" method. If you haven't heard of it you should look it up. Basically a UK rowing team trying to win gold but not getting anywhere doing the same old thing changed their tactic and before doing anything, would ask themselves "will this make the boat go faster?". If the answer was no then they wouldn't do it. For example will working out make it go faster? Yes? Then do it. Will going to be pub make it go faster? No? Don't do it.
Anyway long story short my version is "Will this bring my baby closer?" If the answer is no then why would I do it? I've also asked DP to keep me in check in my moments of weakness. Not everyone knows why I'm losing weight so she will simply ask "will this make the boat go faster?" if I need to stop and think about the choice I make. It's like our own little code lol.
Anyway the concept works with any goal. PS - they won the gold. It pays off but won't just happen. They worked hard and asked themselves that question many, many times.

Weight watchers works so long as you track, it is just a great way to keep yourself accountable as you are righting everything down. I also keep a few frozen weight watchers meals in the freezer at work in case I am having an off day or haven't had time to prepare something, my fave lunch idea is wraps or frittata though. I'm also not a big salad fan prefer a big pile of steamed veg anyday!
@TortoiseNotTheHare bad choices do not define our weight lose goals the choices after them do so I wouldnt be stressing over a bad choice I would be concentrating on making the next choice a brilliant one! Love the "will this make the boat go faster" I am doing the same everytime I go for something bad I ask myself if its more important then wanting a Baby, answer is no everytime!
Good to see everyone going well and loving the motivation and support coming from this thread. Have a great day everyone
