I started calorie counting just over four years ago and managed to lose almost two stone in about three months the first time around.
Then I went to uni and managed to pile every single last pound back on to my body without really even noticing.
I've been back on CC for two weeks now and have dropped 7.5lbs already. I'm finally feeling motivated enough to actually sort my weight problem out once and for all - and I think keeping a diary will help me to genuinely evaluate what I'm doing. I'm the queen of lying to myself about portion sizes, calories, exercise, haha!
I'll update this post as the day goes on, and update my stats weekly. Hopefully, actually writing down the change will keep me on track!

Generally would eat more than this, especially after exercising, but I've felt a little bit nauseous all day - I think my IBS is playing up again! At least I've got a little bit of a calorie buffer for later in the week now though!
