    Let's get lean.... in 2014

    Hi Everyone,

    I thought I'd start a new thread for the new year

    I'm 41, and currently bouncing in at 18st 2lbs, which, at 5'6" is ridiculous.

    I'm aiming to lose 3st by mid April, for a holiday, as a starting target. I have tried as variety of diets before, with SW being the most successful, as its pretty normal eating patterns with no fuss. However, this time I'm going down the calorie counting route as I have a fixed target to hit

    So, I'm dropping the excuses, about work and college and family commitments and let's see if I can't drop some lbs instead!

    Well done on starting! Calorie counting is fab as it gives you lots of flexibility! Everyone is really supportive here and it has really helped me. What kinds of things were you planning on eating? xx

    Hi Rachel

    I had previously lost weight on SW, so I'm going to follow their general green day red day rules, but being much more disciplined on portion sizes, so not go over 1300 cals a day.

    MFP is "my fitness pal" its an app you can download on your phone or computer to track calories. It also has a barcode scanner so you can calorie count on the go too! It can be a really useful tool and it's what i use to track
    Oooh sounds good I like looking at the slimming world pages for recipe ideas so you will have to post us some xx

    Hiya Rach,

    Ah ha, yes I do have that. Its pretty handy, plus the discipline of having to update it really makes me think twice about portion sizes, which has to be as good thing.

    My big downfall is alcohol, love a giant wine or 6. I'll have to get a new routine when I get in from work to reduce my intake....hic

    So, have been eating to plan, and have also cutout alcohol since the weekend(will try for 2 weeks). I'm finding spare time now I'm not sitting down with a wine. I'm tidying a drawer a day, which is quite satisfying. Decluttered food, decluttered house...... Yay

    Still on track....yipee...

    Today's menu
    Breakfast: almond milk, some stawbs and blueberries in a blender as a smoothie
    Lunch: some home made thai chicken soup
    Dinner: roast pork belly with sweet potatoes

    Was starving after about 9am, but just kept drinking instead. Was not at all hungry after the tasty, if as tad hot, soup. Dinner was tasty too. All low carb, low fat, no processed **** in it. What's not to like?��
