    I was doing normal portions of what I thought were pretty healthy home made meals - turns out there was 800 cal per serve in some those recipes, which was a big shock!!

    I know weigh and log everything (the recipe builder in MFP is awesome) and aim for ~500 cal/serve.

    Think of drinks - coffees, juices, alcohol etc - all of them can be quite sneakily full of calories.

    Salad dressings and cooking oil. Olive oil is around 100 cal/tbsp which is fine if you're cooking 5 serves of meat in it, but not so great if you're only cooking one serve meat.
    On the 14/01 I had posted that I had gained about 2 kgs and then you (and some other lovely ladies) opened my eyes to 'my fitness pal'. I have been eating smaller portions thanks to weighing my food and I've been tracking everything so that I know exactly what I'm eating and now 5 days later I'm 5.4kgs lighter on the scale. I was in disbelief this morning! I think some of that would have been water weight or something along those lines but I'm feeling good about what I'm eating and scales are loving me for it.

    THANK YOU!!! Your advice has definitely helped!! 😃

    My fitness pal is great for tracking calories. I also love reading the success stories for motivation.

    It's been fantastic! I find that I feel comfortable about what I'm eating now rather than worrying and thinking "should I have eaten that?"

    I've stopped obsessing over losing weight and I'm actually enjoying meal times again because I feel happy with the choices I'm making. I love having that clear visibility of my daily meals!!

    How's everyone going?

    Things still good here. I've run every day this week and food is on track. We're going away tomorrow until Monday, so that will be a test. I'll weigh in in the morning. If I can maintain my weight for the time we're away I'll be super happy.

    I haven't being doing well, no sleep, no exercise and no energy. Decided that I can't put my life on hold waiting for DD to sleep better so I'm taking my tired self to the gym this morning. Too scared to weigh in!!
