....about the ten kilos hanging around my middle.
I haven't tried very hard with the dieting.
I like to eat.
True, I'm eating smaller portions, but they're probably still high in calories and I've been cheating and eating dessert too often.
So I've bought these--->
and some of these too --->
Here's what they are ---
I've eaten the Lean Cuisine brand before, so I knew which ones I liked and bought those.
But I've never tried the Weight Watchers brand, so I chose what looked like it might taste good and made a chart to tick yes or no as I tried them.
So far, I've had four.
Three that I would buy again, one that I most definitely would not.
With the addition of an extra green vegetable such as broccoli, the meals aren't too bad.
And because I haven't cooked, there are no leftovers for me to have second helpings.
Second helpings are a big part of my problem.
I like to eat.
Even though they cost more than buying fresh foods, I am saving electricity (and time) by not cooking, a few minutes in the microwave is a lot cheaper than turning on the oven or hotplates, plus they come in their own little plastic (plastic, I know, I know, not good for the environment) bowls, so I just rinse well and put them in the recycle bin. See, I'm not just throwing them in landfill.
No washing up.
So a higher cost now, will see a lower electricity bill later.
I'm going to stick with this until Christmas, with an occasional "real" meal, something that I've cooked myself, probably once a month.
Hopefully, I'll be saying bye-bye to those ten kilos.
I've purposely not bought any butterscotch puddings!
