Weight Loss Wednesday - My Weight Loss Update


This week's post is just going to be a quick one, I just wanted to give everyone an update on how my weight loss is going. I've been dieting for about 3 months now and I've lost a stone which I'm really happy with, I've been averaging around 1 lb per week weight loss so it's been slow and steady which is good as it means I'm more likely to keep it off. 

I now have 3 more pounds to lose until I reach my goal weight of 8 and a half stone and I have 4 weeks to go until we go on our holiday so fingers crossed I might make it to my goal weight just in time.

If you're taking part in Weight Loss Wednesdays leave me the link to your blog and I'll go and take a look.

Weight Loss Wednesday - Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

Hi Ladies!

Sorry for my lack of posting this week, both of my children have been ill with stomach bugs and it's been pretty non stop since last thursday, what is usually a 24 hour bug has lasted 5 days so far and it's awful seeing my babies so poorly but hopefully they'll feel better soon and be back to their usual mischievous selves.

Anyway on to this weeks post, today I thought I'd share another recipe with you, this time for Blueberry Breakfast Muffins. They're approx. 140 calories per muffin with 3.5g of fat and make a great quick breakfast or mid afternoon snack.


250g self raising flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
50g low fat margarine
75g sweetener (I use Natvia)
100g blueberries
2 large eggs
235ml semi-skimmed milk
The juice from half a lemon

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line 12 hole muffin tin with cases.
Sieve flour and baking powder together twice in to a large bowl, add margarine and rub gently until it resembles breadcrumbs and stir in the sugar and blueberries.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and lemon juice and add to the flour mixture, stir gently but don't over mix.
Spoon in to cases and bake for 20-25 minutes.

As you can see from my picture my blueberries sank to the bottom of the muffins, I think this was because I used a little too much milk as my measuring jug is pretty worn out and the measurements aren't very clear anymore but to be honest it didn't make any difference when you're eating them and they were very yummy.

My weight stayed the same this week which I was fine about as I'd eaten a lot of naughty stuff and with the kids being ill didn't have time to exercise much so I was just happy to not put weight on. I'm back on track this week so hopefully I'll lose something next week.
