    Haha, couldn't resist, I am pathetic! Still, I think I got away with it, my 2 hourly post meal only went to 6.7, I was expecting it to be much higher :) Wait til you hear what I had yesterday! :grin:

    It fascinates me that the things we once craved have no appeal now. Such is the nature of carb addiction. I had an awayday with friends yesterday, and they brought loads of carby goodies for the journey, chocolate croissants, M&S biccies, etc. I would have devoured the lot and craved more before lchf

    Exciting day yesterday, up at 5.30am for a trip to The Smoke with my pals for lunch at Dinner by Heston, woohoo!
    B: yoghurt and berries
    L: Iberico pork chop cooked to perfection, with ham hock (unfortunately encased in something that looked a bit suspect so I left it), and baby sprout hearts followed by the house special, tipsy pudding which was divine :drool:
    I also had a rose petal cocktail, and a Mojito earlier, and a coffee with cream afterwards. 2 hour post reading was 7.4, not too bad.
    1/2 slice of ham, some cheese and baby plum toms on the return journey, and yoghurt, berries and cream when I got home.

    Can I have a quick mini rant about something my Mother in law said? It was weeks ago but it has been needling at me. She asked how much weight I'd lost and in 3 months it was around 10kg which I thought was pretty decent (in fact I'm deliriously happy with it) but she took the wind right out of my sails by saying "yes, you've done it the right way, losing it slowly". I'm sure there was a genuinely intended compliment in there but 10kg in 12 weeks is pretty quick I thought. I suddenly felt a bit deflated that I wasn't trying hard enough. Or maybe I am just being massively over-sensitive about it all.

    I was surprised I got away with crumble yesterday - had it for breakfast today too and only went from 5.2 to 5.6 tho may have been a delayed higher figure as I was 6.1 pre lunch BUT went down from that to 5.9 after a lunch that was leftover quorn curry from yesterday with a naan bread. which took me UP a little yesterday ...... the way our bodies work - bit of a mystery at times :rolleyes:

    That's around 2lbs per week which is excellent progress - mayb she thought you meant 10lbs? Here is a good place to rant - we all need to vent now and again....... the important thing is that you are happy with your progress (and ifs she's an otherwise good M-I-L then I'm sure she did mean it kindly :))

    B: 2 tbsp wholegrain oats, cinnamon, chia seeds, yoghurt, berries, seeds, nuts, the usual formula
    L: Fried egg, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms (roadside cafe -- modest helping but charged the same as a full breakfast as if with toast, marmalade, sausages & fried bread) :mad: Under new management -- normally get a generous amount.
    D: Leftover lamb mince with cauli & cheese topping, mixed salad
    S: Olive bread (recipe from forum), cheese, tomato. Still haven't got the hang of using coconut flour (very dry) but I will persevere.
