Weigh in approaching fast...

Well the weigh in is tomorrow, so it's time for a review of the past week. I've over eaten every day by a couple of points. It's only a small amount but I've found it really hard to stick to the plan. However I have been exercising, including walking again today for about 1 hour 45 mins around Virgina Waters so I'm hoping to of gone some way to make up for the extra food. I am feeling good though, much less bloated than the previous week. Tomorrow I have my fingers crossed to have lost 1.5 pounds as that would equal out the gain from last week. Wish me luck!

Today I have been walking with my Mum. We go every Sunday for 1-2 hours which is great exercise without making myself exhausted and sweaty. I've also got the day off work tomorrow so have already coaxed Brian into coming with me for another walk for a couple of hours. Feeling much better having been back on the diet for a week now and have done a big shop today so there's plenty of healthy food in the house which makes it a lot easier to stick to my diet.

Going well

Feeling good today, it has all gone well since Monday, have been exercising every day - today was washing my car during my lunch hour - first time ever!!! I'm looking forward to fat club on Tuesday hopefully can start watching the numbers go down again.

The horrific truth

Spurred on by the fact that I only put on 1 1/2 pounds after a two week binge (yay!) and managing to face weight watchers, I decided that it was time for 'before' photos. Incredibly depressing but neccessary if I never intend to get back to this again.
Here's to a new start and a commitment to never return!

Oh and please excuse the mess on the floor!

Feeling huge!

Okay, so I haven't written for a while and that's because I've been stuffing my face and couldn't face the truth! Had a weekend which envolved 3 birthday meals and now I'm feeling huge. However, yesterday morning I did start back on the diet and I am already feeling better. I've got to face weight watchers tonight even though I have put on all the weight I lost, I'm dreading it but the sooner I get it over with the better. Now my new promise to myself is to write this blog every day. It doesn't matter if I'm the only one reading it, just having to write down publicly if I have done badly will hopefully be enough to motivate me not to. So here's to a new start (again!)

Chocolate and bread fest

Okay, so I haven't managed to sort out my motivation yet and have spent yesterday and today stuffing my face with loads of bread and chocolate. It's Valentine's day tomorrow and we have already decided to have a chinese take away so I am kind of resigned to the fact that it's a bit too late to turn this week around. I got a letter from Weight watchers today, saying I missed last week which made me feel even more guilty. So, need to make a new resolution. I will start on Sunday - back to a strict diet and lots of exercise.

First time!

Hi, well this is my first ever post which is a bit scary! I started my diet just over 5 weeks ago but over the last few days it has not gone well. Got up today thinking I'd be really motivated and start again but we had no food in the house so had to go to work with an empty stomach. Then managed to scoff down a cadbury's cream egg and a chomp bar before lunch, so not a good start! Due to the lack of food in my house instead of taking lunch to work I had to brave the supermarket with a rumbling stomach and as you can guess went a bit wild in the isles and ended up eating enough to feed a family! So not a good start but there is always tomorrow... got to get back on course before Tuesday - didn't make it to Weight Watchers last week due to sheer humiliation at the amount of weight I'd managed to put on in a matter of days. Wish me luck!
