Weight loss #5

So this week I tried again to do better and I had my weekly weigh in last night
Weigh in update: -1/2lb
So at least I'm heading in the right direction although I want to do better. This week my aim is to lose 1.5lb which will get me out of my weight loss rut. If I manage to lose 1.5lb then I will be at my lowest so far on this journey and I will feel like I have turned a corner.
These are just two of the meals I had this last week
Hearty Italian style meal

This meal contains celery,carrots, onions,peppers, mushrooms, tinned tomatoes, passata, chicken, bacon, macaroni, oregano & garlic. It's a fantastic meal, the original recipe for this was called a 'soup' but every time I have made this its more like a meal. I suppose you could make it into a soup by blending the veg a bit and adding less pasta but i like it like this. It is so yummy and satisfying.

Sweet potato and prawn curry

This meal contains sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, sugar snap peas, garlic, chilli, chilli powder, curry powder, cumin, ground coriander, prawns (and I added chicken too) served with rice.

I may have forgotten some ingredients in the curry but I am writing this from memory, this recipe is actually from the extra easy cook book so if you have that you will be able to look it up in there. I added the chicken as I didn't feel I had enough prawns in it and the mix seemed to work well :)

If you would like any more details on those meals let me know but they were quite simple to make.

Wishing you all a good weigh loss week :)
