I've started getting positive comments about my weight loss, so it is showing! My most recent weigh in was 14 stone 10.25lbs and my short term goal is 14 stone. I very much look forward to being able to fit into size 16 clothes. I have some ready from when I was a size 16 before (a long time ago!) and I even have some size 12s in a bag on top of the wardrobe. I KNOW I will get there at some point, even if it takes me another year.
My diet mostly consists of meat, eggs and veg at the moment, together with some coconut milk and a variety of oils. I had some wild salmon baked in tin foil with olive oil and lemon this evening, which helped to make it less dry. I have found that farmed salmon is much more oily and moist, but research suggests that it is much lower in omega 3 than wild salmon.
I seem to get an upset stomach whenever I eat the jerky I've made myself, so I'm going to lay off it for a while and buy some pre-made online, just so i can check it really is that causing the problem. I expect I'm leaving the meat in the fridge too long before dehydrating it. I also wonder whether it's actually cheaper buying it pre made, as the cost of running the dehydrator may well cancel out the convenience mark up. I'm investigating some British jerky makers and will report back.
