Day 15 - Week 3 and weekly weigh-in

Well today marks our half way point in our journey!! A quick ask of the family and everyone is still pretty happy to be staying on the rations although we're all missing certain things....

Kids - Chocolate (no surprise there! funnily they only chose sweets for their rations not chocolate!)
Hubby - Snacks in between meals and beans on toast! And most of all bigger portions!
Me - Tinned Tomatoes - didn't expect it to be that did you! I used alot of tomatoes in my pre-ration cooking!

We weighed ourselves this morning...

Weight this week :-
Hubby  = - 0.2kg   overall =  +3.2kg
Me =  - 0.8kg        overall =  -1.9kg

I havent been very active this week and we've had more  'nice' food and puddings because of the birthday tea! So I'm pleased its a minus figure but not surprised its low.

A deliberate change this week has been to swap our plates to smaller ones - makeing the food look bigger / more!
Not so deliberate, i keep forgetting to take photos till we're half way through / finished!!!


Toast and Jam or  Cornflakes


Cheese Sandwiches or egg and cress sandwiches


Mashed Swede & Potato, Carrots, Gammon


  1. Congratulations on the weight loss! I'm enjoying watching your project unfold, do you think you will continue after the month is over?
    Best wishes,

    1. Yes, I think I might Rebecca, I'm starting to think that the 2 weeks left are rather short! It would definitely free up a lot of cupboard space sticking to this eating plan as well as producing less waste, being healthier and feeling fuller!!
