Welcome to the ramblings of Two Tasty Teachers!

We have decided to start blogging about how difficult dieting can be. We want to share our experiences in the hope they will help others realise they are not alone.

This is a discussion blog to offer support to other 'normal' dieters out there in the world.

Everyone finds dieting difficult ... so let’s all do it together!

Brace Yourself!

Day 1
We have lift of! Or shall I say … very sharp scissors to open these HUGE boxes.
So the boxes arrived in all their cardboard - brown glory. Needless to say we were both very excited and reached for in for our breakfast. I chose a Soft chocolate chip cookie, whilst Laura chose a chocolate chip breakfast bar. Yum!
We then wandered back to our classrooms and planned to meet for lunch (yes we giggled for a short while because our food said lunch on it too!)
When 12 O’clock came I rushed to eat my Chicken Veg and Cous cous salad (served cold … weird) in Laura’s classroom. She had chosen the same. I tentatively peeled back the film lid to reveal a delightful sized cous cous salad. As a bonus, it was quite tasty.
So … we decided to lug these boxes home to have a good look (we love a good look) to see what other delights we can look forward too. Laura,  the planner in the Two Tasty Teachers duo, was already sorting her lunches and breakfasts for next week. Me … I’m more of a chuck and go kinda gal!
The boxes didn’t fit in the car and we drove home with the boot open … obviously a normal thing to do (duh). When we got home we decided to have our final meal before I was rushed away to another meeting. I chose Shepherd’s Pie and Laura chose veggie lasagna.Later on we Dove into a bag of sweet and salty popcorn … Deeeeeeeelicious!
All in all the food was absolutely delicious. If I am being completely honest, (if I was nit picking) I sort of regret buying so many for the cous cous salad but on the flip side it wasn’t inedible. I cannot stress enough how pleased I am because I wasn’t starving!
So … day one done … I am now sitting in bed, reflecting on a much more successful day!
Please let me know if you are doing the Diet Chef diet or any other diets that work!
I would love to hear from anyone!

Good news is just around the corner .... hopefully!

Just received THE email for Diet Chef to confirm that our order has been dispatched.

Surely this is good news!

After confessing that I am definitely obese (according to my BMI) to everyone who would listen at lunch time ... I feel rather deflated. Everyone seems to think that I am crazy! However, it is indeed a fact! A BMI of 30 is obese.

Sometimes it;s best to be honest. I've started so I will continue.

To those of you who read our last blog ... we are definitely NOT at Zumba ... We should be, but we are not. I feel very guilty. Note to self .... PLEASE try harder!

What have you been doing today to be better than us?

Please let me know ... share some words of wisdom!

Lots of good luck

Rome wasn't built in a day!

So ... Its January

After an all inclusive, blow out in Tenerife with friends we have decided to begin a diet. However, it has not been as successful as originally planned.

At work, we are always told ... 'it's about solutions NOT problems' so here we are £100 pounds lighter (see what I did there?) and with hope that we have found the solution to ALL our problems.

We have finally joined in the Diet Chef craze. The weightloss people experience seems to be slowish but steady, which is great, but after doing the Cambridge Diet for 4 years on and off will DC be fast enough?

We also plan to attend 2 Zumba classes a week ... (eek)

Well here goes ... You are welcome to join us with whatever diet you are doing and all comments and advice is welcome.

However if you do wish to leave a comment please be nice!

Start Weight
Tasty 1  = 11.13
Tasty 2 = 12.03

We will weigh every Monday and update the blog as and when events happen.

Zumba starts tomorrow and we await our CD delivery!

But for now .... Good Luck and get involved!
