    I'm trying the healthy mummy shakes as a kick start. I waited until I was back at work for more of a routine. My DH is supportive without asking or expecting anything which is good.
    @Mulzer your starting weight is closer to my first ending weight goal ! Best wishes for your weight loss goals! xx

    I logged back into my calorie king account yesterday and added food for both days. I've stayed just below the calorie amount the website has suggested based on my age, height and weight. It's suggested quite a high amount of calories, but I've double checked on other sites and they're all about the same. I know sticking close to that amount will slow down weight loss but I think I'll stick to it better than when I was trying to get close to 1200 calories or even 1500.
    I'll see what happens after a week and adjust from there.

    I have been using My Fitness Pal and I have a Fitbit & have found if I have friends who can see what I am eating & exercise it has made me more aware of it. Good luck

    Are the friends on MFP actual friends or MFP friends? I wonder if I'd be more accountable if I had a public MFP profile with friends instead of the private profile I use now.

    With my fitness pal and scales.

    It's got a pretty vast database and the app comes with a barcode scanner.

    So say I'm making spaghetti bolagnaise
    I'll set up a recipe and scan in the barcodes of the mince, tomato paste, minced garlic, tinned tomatoes, spaghetti etc and make sure all the weights are correct (I'll weigh the spaghetti uncooked and just use 500g mince packets). Things like vegetables I'll just search for and weigh my veggies and add them in.

    It then gets you to say how many serves per recipe there are, so even if you're making a meal for 5 you can still work out how many calories per serve there are.

    I scan and log absolutely everything - the 250ml glass of juice I have in the morning, the milk on my cereal, the oil that I cook my meat in.

    It's super easy with packaged foods and the teeniest bit more fiddly with home made recipes (but not impossible!!).

    I don't count calories anymore, in
    Previous attempts at weight loss I have and found I got obsessed with it but I have a rough idea about what kinds of foods a day I can eat and still lose, but I mostly focus on healthy balance and trying to get fitter and hope I lose weight lol

    Yes they are MFP friends. And I believe it has made me more accountable.
