Day one of three done and dusted

It is always in three's with me. For me this works this way.  It takes three days to be back in control with eating . Three weeks non smoking to kick it for good.  Three weeks slimming to see a noticeable difference. So yesterday, day one, successfully achieved.

I am not doing a strict SW plan this time, I am kind of counting calories as I go.  I worked for a slimming group in the 90's (3 years) and it was based on calorie counting. 1250-1500 each day depending on how much weight you needed to lose.  Awareness has made me extremely careful with SW plan as it would be so easy to overdose on free foods.  Reading WLB account on this subject confirmed what had been niggling me.  Dinner followed by rice pudding for example.  Calorie wise it's equivalent to two main meals.  I know it works for lots of people but moderation is key.  I feel sad when I see newcomers to FB slimming pages who post pics of their free food dinners and not a superfree in sight.  It's sad because it took me a while to cotton on to the 1/3rd SF rules and that was nothing to do with attending class it was to do with reading blogs! Also I would like to point out, its those who do use their superfree are the super losers!

 Breakfast. Two soft boiled eggs and a slice of toast scraped with light butter.

Dinner       Beef casserole, with white cabbage, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and new potatoes.

Dessert one crumbled meringue nest, strawberries and 2 tbps elmlea light
Two glasses of white wine 220 cals total.
I also had a cup of hot chocolate 40 cals which is amazing when you fancy something chocolatey, my favourite is Galaxy bubbles 40 cals. 
Had to have an early night as Sean had to be at the hospital for 7am.  He rang to say he was going down to theatre first and to warn me he would be going straight to intensive care.  He wanted to warn me so that when I phone to see how he is, I wouldn't pass out.  So as I type my stomach is churning with worry.
I slept really badly last night, I went to bed too early.  I spent at least 2 hours on the kindle reading blogs, which is always good for motivation. By 05:30 I had given up hope of getting any sleep.  How does KM do her shifts and long hours, mind boggling and i am impressed.  I have lost count how many times I counted my calorie intake for the day.  I think I finally made it 1250 ish for the day.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Love Carol xx
