Weightloss Wednesday - week 3

ITS ALL ABOUT MODIFICATIONS REALLY....

Ok, girls...yes its Weightloss Wednesday.

This is the third week of our challenge, so that means next week will be ONE MONTH - woohoo! One month of the newer, better healthier you. So lets give it a really big effort this next week so we can celebrate that one month milestone together.


I was reading some weightloss tips this week and one of them struck me as quite good because its not so restrictive but rather about modifications.  The tip was....

 "Don't feel you have to miss out on some of your favourite foods just because you're trying to lose weight - just modify them to a healthier - light weight version".



So...this weeks assignment is, what is one of your absolute favourite foods and how can you modify it to make it lower in calories?

I know mine is take-away Pizza (and we did indulge this week) but when I rang up to order it, I ordered the gluten-free base which is made of rice & potato flour and other better ingredients then your average white flour-fatty-drippy pizza base. I also asked for Vegetarian and half the usual cheese. I also ordered a smaller size.
I got to indulge but felt much better about it.

Leave the link to your post below and tell us any weight you've lost plus one of your favourite foods and how you could MODIFY it?

And remember:



* * This week we'll be sending you a daily tip to help you put in a big effort this week. * *

  3. Woohoooooo Karen! 50 flamin' kilos!!! Hoe fantastic is that. I'm sure I just can't appreciate enough, how much effort that took. You are half your weight!

    (LOL - I suppose that does put a bit of perspective into my weight although I'm such a petite person). I used to be size 8, not 10 hedging 12.
