    Counting those calories

    Hello everyone! I'm a 29-year-old woman, 5ft 4in and weighing 12 stone 5lbs (173lbs) as of this morning. I lost a lot of weight a few years ago calorie counting but put it all back on again and more besides, so I'm trying to shift it now once and for all. My goal is about 10 and a half stone (147lbs) but just having my clothes fitting better will be nice too!

    Here's my diary for today!

    Breakfast: 1 slice healthy grain bread, soft boiled egg. Two cups of tea with l/f milk. (216 cals)

    Lunch: 2 small rolls with ham, cheese and mayo. Two teas. (579 cals)

    Snack: 2 Hobnob biscuits. (146 cals)

    Dinner: Spag bol. (600 cals)

    Total: 1541 cals

    Exercise: Brisk 40-minute walk

    Day 2!

    I finished up in my job a few weeks ago and I've been around the house every day with no routine since then, which is an absolute nightmare for boredom eating! Would love to hear any advice people have for not snacking constantly throughout the day! I've loaded up my ipod and I'm going to go out for a really long walk now so hopefully that should keep me busy.

    Also, had a big revelation this morning. I worked out my BMR using the calculator on this site and should be eating 1380 calories a day, BUT shouldn't be eating back my exercise calories - something I had been doing all along. Bit of a shock to realise I don't have all these extra calories to play around with, but hopefully it should spur on my weight loss a bit more to stick to just 1380 a day.

    Day 3
    Good morning, calorie counters!

    Hope everyone is having a good day so far. I'm almost out of cereal and it's a 6km round trip to my nearest Aldi so that's going to be my exercise for today sorted!

    My Aldi is a good walk away - never measured it but use up 5,000 steps so try and make it a daily visit.

    Whilst I was in there today saw some new foods in the fridge section - bought a box of cooked noodles with endame and black beans with a coriander and chilli dressing ( 250 cals for the box) which I had with some salad. It was delicious and cost 1.49.

    Day 4

    I have my cooking class tonight where we eat what we cook so my plan is to just have breakfast and lunch today and leave plenty of calories free for that. Going to walk to and from there too instead of getting the bus so that will be good exercise.

    No idea what we're cooking tonight! Last week was baking bread and different types of soups so hopefully it's something pretty healthy tonight too!

    Trying to remember what I ate over the last three days! I was down 1lb on Friday morning but then had three awful days so I didn't even bother getting on the scales today. Let's see...

    Friday:
    Slice of toast with butter
    Grilled chicken wrap with a few chips
    Pasta with a tomatoey sauce
    Three beers
    Two mini rolls

    Saturday:
    Slice of toast with butter
    Half a pulled pork bap
    Homemade pizza
    Lots of beer and lots of peanut MnMs

    Sunday:
    Small roll with ham, cheese and coleslaw
    Half a chocolate muffin
    Roast chicken, couscous and gravy
    Four slices of freshly baked bread with real butter
    The remainder of the peanut MnMs
    Six beers

    So there's the reason I wasn't on the scales this morning! Ugh, so annoyed with myself, weekends are always my downfall. And today isn't going much better either because I'm hungover. Back to it properly tomorrow

    Diet: calorie counting
    Height: 5ft2in
    Start Date: 29th May 2014
    Hi everyone,
    This is a nice friendly site isn't it!
    I am 5'2 and weighed 10st 10lbs at start of diet on 29th May this year. I am calorie counting and now weigh 9 st. Hooray! I would like to get down past 9 as i haven't weighed that since 1994!
    I aim for 1000 cal per day but I think that may be too low. However the weight has come off and i guess to maintain this weight I would add extra cals but not sure how many. Any advice?
