Last weekend when I put on my "slim" pants, I was quite alarmed that it was very tight at the waist. Same thing with the thigh, there was much less room than before. Losing weight is relatively easy but it is maintenance that is the killer.
I told myself that upon reaching my target weight, I would allow myself one cheat day a week. And what did I do? I had one too many. And what happened? I piled on some of the pounds that I lost.
Before it gets too far (i.e. me not being able to get into my pants!), I have to behave and cut down on my carb intake. No more feasting on a tray of warm chewy cookies in front of the telly or taking pleasure in a (big) bowl of pasta. At least until my pants feel comfortable again.
So. Instead of cookies, I had to make do with a salad (and some protein) to accompany me while I binge on Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday evening. Yeah, I love to watch people dance while I stuff my face with cookies errr... no....salad.
So I roasted a head of broccoli and some cherry tomatoes.
Then I grated a small carrot and made a dressing. Tossed them all up and got me a nice bowl of salad.
Recipe? Nah...I don't think you want to eat this thing. Hah!
