    Getting a grip

    Been trying to start from the 2nd Jan but been sidetracked by leftover xmas food. In reality, I've been eating all sorts as an excuse to delay starting this. Even jars of black olives. So tomorrow (6th Jan) is finally day 1! Start back at work so that will keep me busy.

    Start weight 14 stones. The heaviest that I have ever been :-( Look like **** and feel like ****, so it's time to get a grip!

    Bye bye fatty food, hello VCLD :-)

    I'm the author of my own life. Time to write a success story...

    5ft1 14stones BMI 37

    I'll post pics when I'm allowed... Good luck to you too. We can nail this thing once n for all! X

    Welcome to the forum Trying hard. I think this time of the year is best for starting a new eating plan especially after all the over indulgence that goes with Christmas. Stay focused & the weight will soon start dropping off. The first days are the hardest but just keep in mind how good you will feel on your 1st week weigh in.

    Good for you doing the measurements, I keep putting off doing mine but suppose I should take the bull by the horns & face up to it.

    So day 1 continued...


    Work was good. Nice to see the children and work colleagues. Good news is that everyone is on a diet so I won't stick out like a sore thumb!

    Had my first soup at lunchtime. Vegetable. Very nice. Had it in a bowl and ate it with a teaspoon to make it last longer! Felt satisfied...

    Quick visit to the dentist on way back from work. Have a real fear of those guys! Need to get treatment done so lots visits planned. God help him when my ketosis breath kicks in!

    So I'm going to have chilli for dinner then a bar later on.

    Sister coming round to visit in a bit. Had to make her some dinner (chicken curry!) no licking of spoons or fingers or sampling how well cooked the rice was (have myself a pat on the back for that!)

    Must drink more water tonight or ill be inviting the headaches over for a party!

    Was going to set my turbo up tonight but I think ill leave it. No time tonight :-)

    I hope uv had a good day and are winning your weight war!
