    Urrrrgh. I've felt like absolute death all day and had to go home from work before lunch - I got the flu. If this is being healthy I don't want none of it.

    Breakfast (which I had around 12-1 anyway since I've not been hungry at all):
    Honey porridge (196 kcals)
    Banana (105 kcals)

    Dinner:
    Bowl of veg curry
    I also added banana and a chocolate crepe to my fitbit food diary, but I haven't even had the stomach for those yet

    No exercise, obviously. Yesterdays weights were a terrible idea.

    So apparently I have lost a shed load of weight overnight, but I'm dubious. To be fair I have not been eating a lot these last couple of days as I've been pretty ill, and I did go up unexpectedly on Tuesday so...I dunno :sigh:

    Breakfast:
    Banana (105 kcal)

    Lunch:
    Veg curry (200 kcal)
    Half a pot of low fat cottage cheese (100 kcal)

    Dinner:
    Same as lunch plus a banana (405 kcal)

    Total calories: 810 kcal
    Total water: 2.1L

    No exercise again as I'm still on my death bed I really really want to do some as well.

    Since starting my healthy eating 'thing' (this is not a diet!), I've lost 12lbs, this makes me 76kg now and only around 11kg from the top of my goal!

    Still a long way to go, but to know I've lost nearly a stone is a massive step in the rigt direction and huge motivation that I can lose weight, pretty damn easily!

    What's more, I feel good, less lethargic, happier....it's never too late!

    definitely under eating. the daily recommended amount of calories for women is 2,000. seems like you are always eating half or less than half of that, which is pretty bad.. no wonder you got ill, your immune system must be down.

    I got ill because my mum had the flu and she kindly passed it on to me. I'm quite considerably overweight so eating around 1,000 kcals a day is not going to kill me...hopefully.

    Don't sweat it, as long as you go back to the gym today its fine. I've had a crazy number of exams so my gym sessions have been erratic.

    Maybe try doing some excercises that can be done at home, even without weights ? I've gone a couple on my blog if you wanna check some out, or even just google want eg. Home chest work out
