    Going from dreaming the dream, to living the dream <3

    Hi everyone :-), im Jenn, I'm new to calorie counting, although I'm not new to trying to lose weight, I've tried absolutely everything, from weight watchers, slimming world, slim fast to slimming tablets, and I haven't had any lasting success. So I figured I would give calorie counting a go, as I can pretty much eat what a chose, as long as I stick withinh my daily calories (I'm obviously going to try and chose healthy options).

    Anyway a little about myself, I'm 24 and have two wonderful children :-) I work as a carer so I do all kinds of shifts (including nights) so my eating can be all over the place at times. I would say I'm a bit of a binge eater so I really need to work on not letting myself get over hungry by healthy snacking and drinking enough (always struggled with this) but I will drink 2-3 litres a day as of today :-). My starting weight is 14stone 1lb :-( (holy moly) I really can't seem to shift any of my baby weight this time, my little man is 6 months old now so thought I would have lost something by now. My weight is really starting to make me insecure now, I used to live going shopping and now this is something I detest, I've even been know to cry in a dressing room when I can't even fit myself into a size 14, all I do now is cover myself up in boring non flattering black clothes and this really isn't me at all. So enough is enough, no more feeling sorry for myself I'm going to get on and do it, no more dreaming about being a size 8 and wearing beautiful clothes, I will be a size 8 :-D.

    Anyway enough of me going on lol, I'm going I be eating 1500 calories a day, 2-3 litres of water, and exercise at least 3 times a week, although I do walk a lot everyday aswell anyway. So my starting weight is 14st1lb and my goal weight is to be 9st, I'm going to break this down into mini goals of 7lb, and every time I get there I will give myself a non foody treat :-), so wish me luck peeps, am now going to read through some diaries in here to get me some inspiration.
