Happy happy

I'm happy to report another loss this week. It was only .3kg but that's my 4th loss in a row! So my total loss for March is 1.7kg so I've made my goal this month (makes a change). It's happening very slowly but I'm not being 100% good so I only have myself to blame for that. However, I'm still happy to have the scales go down even if they're only going down .3 per week. A loss is a loss is a loss.

Last night's dinner (of which there is no pic) was the Zuccini slice from STGTGT Book 1. Divine! I worked out the points as 3 for 1/4 of the whole thing which is pretty good. Tonight's dinner is homemade pizza. I don't put any cheese on mine anymore. :) Also we're off to a concert tonight. My friend, me & our 2 daughters are all going to see Crowded House. Woot!

It seems to be a trend among my blog buddies at the moment. We're all faffing around not losing much. I actually did have a loss this week, half a kilo. I haven't been all that bad in the past few weeks but nothing was showing on the scales. Who can explain that? Anyway, this hopefully will give me a bit more motivation to continue.

In keeping with my last couple of posts, here is my dinner from tonight. It's based on Annette Sym's Chicken Homestead Pie from STGTBT book 4. I don't actually make my own pastry and I add lots more vegies than in the recipe. This one has mushrooms, shallots, capsicum, cauli, carrots & beans. The sauce is made with 4 sachets of cup-a-soup mixed with milk. When boiled, it thickens up beautifully & is pretty tasty. Tonight's was a mix of cream of mushie, spring veg & cream of chicken. 5 points is the total for 1/4 of the pie using reduced fat puff pastry.
