Summary:

By far, the most satisfying things I ate today were the fruit’n’nut salad and the homemade vegetable&pasta soup. My body actively welcomes such wholesome fare. Whereas it merely tolerates the heavy duty Indian takeaway. (Which was most satisfying when fresh. And provided diminishing returns through lunch and dinner today.) The breaded fish was ok, if a little bland. And I always enjoy my breakfast crumpets, but they’re not my body’s favourites by any means.

Of course, we will be eating takeaways again. (Largely at weekends.) But during the week, I plan to feed us mostly homemade food. Which, if I can make it as tongue-ticklingly tasty as tonight’s soup, will help me stay eating well and healthily into my third week of eating consciously.

It’s still unreal how quickly I was able to totally transform my bad eating habits of a lifetime. (Literally overnight!) In the morning I have my first weigh-in and meeting with my weightloss counsellor after two weeks. I’ve got a lot to tell her!

Whatever the scales say (although it will be a miracle if they don’t give me some good news!) I know that my belly is smaller. I’m feeling lighter on my feet, I’m having to tighten my belt (and still my jeans/trousers are loose!) and I have consumed around a third of what I would normally have consumed these past two weeks.
