I just came off of 325+ days on Nutrisystem where I lost 25-30 lbs (depending on what day I weigh). I plan to use the Slimming World Food Optimizing plan for continued weight loss. I'll be sharing with you my impressions, successes (and maybe failures) so you can decide if this plan is right for you.

I was so happy to have some of my Bacon Jalapeno and Scallion Egg Muffins to heat for breakfast this morning. I need to get my act together and make more meals like this. I sliced some tomato to serve along side.
I headed out for a walk at snack time, thus skipping it.
I was hungry by the time I returned from my walk so I whipped up a quick tuna salad and served it with some salad greens.
I picked a few grape tomatoes which I added to lunch for a snack. After lunch I popped a few in my mouth which worked well for a light snack. The cool thing is that I didn't even plant these this year. The plants just came up as volunteers in my garden bed which earlier this year provided me with an ample supply of green beans.
I decided to make Beef Stroganoff for dinner. My version is very basic, beef, mushrooms, onions, white wine and sour cream. Typically I serve this over noodles but I didn't want the carbs so I served mine over fresh sauteed spinach.
I took a walk after dinner, just far enough to hit my 10k steps. I don't know what came over me later but I got hungry an hour or so later. I ate a few slices of Toscano salami. Then, the neighbors brought over cookies as a gift for babysitting their cats last weekend. Normally I can easily ignore cookies but for some reason they spoke my name. I ate one half of a chocolate chip cookie. I went to bed feeling like a total piggy.
Monday's seem to always be busy at least that's my excuse for not calorie tracking meals today. Maybe it was just be because I got lazy. The upside of the day is I still hit (barely) my step goal for the day. I'm sure my weight will blossom accordingly.
