    New Year, New Me: Healthy Eating

    Thought I'd start a diary to record my new healthy eating plan. Well a little about me...

    I'm 25 and looking to improve my diet to become healthier and also lose weight. I joined WW in 2011 weighing in at 13stone 1lb and got to 10stone 7lbs which I maintained for 2 years. I then got the implant in earlier this year and gained 1stone 7lbs so got it back out in November and now looking to get this extra weight back off for summer starting.

    I know WW works for me but I really don't want to be pointing and weighing things again so as of 06/01/2014 I intend to cut out junk food, eat more healthily and up my exercise.

    Hoping to meet people with the same plan to hopefully swap ideas and suggestions etc.

    Thanks, I got it on Saturday to help with portion control since the tubs are pretty small. Do you have a diary?

    Hi, it's a brand called laptop lunches but I just bought it from amazon. Really has helped with portion sizes for lunch.

    I know people who have loved the implant but it just wasn't for me so you may get it and be absolutely fine. Please don't let my experience out you off. My doctor said 1/3 of women are fine on it, another 1/3 need help at the start with also taking the pill then the final third just don't agree with it.

    Thanks are you still doing WW? x

    Will have to check out amazon!

    I'm umming & aaahing about contraception at the moment, swaying between implant & iud, just fed up with the pill!!

    Not on WW anymore, like you I can't be bothered counting etc... I'm not really doing anything food wise atm, trying to increase my exercise & fitness & hoping I therefore won't have to diet!! Although trying to eat less processed food, or rather food I haven't prepared. So sandwiches/crisps at work are off & homemade salads/soups are on!! But that takes preparation, so we shall see

    I ordered it on the Wednesday and received it on the Saturday so delivery was pretty quick too.

    I was the exact same as you, been on the pill for 6 years with no problems at all. GP persuaded me to give the implant a go. It didn't work so she prescribed my usual pill, which gave me horrendous mood swings, took me off that and put me on a different pill which had no effect then put me on a different pill yet again which brought back the mood swings but just not as bad this time. I put on weight and had bad headaches so got it taken back out and touch wood I've been fine ever since. So weird how hormones in the pill are fine with me but the implant just didn't suit me. You can only give it a go and if it doesn't work just get it out again, nothing ventured nothing gained.

    I'm the same, the thought of pointing forever just isn't appealing to me at all. I'm normally good outside of work but having a desk job in a lovely office where's there's always biscuits so I'm sticking to only eating what's in my lunchbox and so far it's worked but it may just be I'm a little sick of chocolate from over the festive period hehe.

    What exercise are you doing because I've done nothing! Hoping to increase my walking and start cycling again if the rain ever stops for long enough!

    I think I'll get one on pay day - expensive month this month!!

    It is tricky finding something right for you, think I may try the coil first & see where I go from there...

    I've sent off my form to compete in a 'fun' triathlon - 200m swim : 20k bike : 2.5k run, so just rejoined the gym and will mostly be training in those disciplines. I'll just run outside, can't stand the treadmill, but will mix up the rides with spin & road cycling. Also going to set up a gym program tomorrow just for toning, I'd like a little definition & strength!!! The rain is terrible isn't it?? I thought about going for a little jog this morning & the rain totally put me off!! Still we should just get out & do it

    How was your day?

    You got a lot on this month?

    Yup you won't know for sure till you try it out.

    Well done, when is your fun triathlon? Are you doing it yourself? That sounds like a great plan and varied so you shouldn't get bored very much. I had a treadmill and sold it last year because I much preferred jogging outside, don't fancy the gym much either so good on you!

    I know we should just get on with it but it's the thought of the freezing cold rain then having to come home soaked through my day was good thanks, work dragged a little but it's one day closer to the weekend! How was your day?

    Expensive because I'm studying part time & have course fees going out before pay day which basically equal what I have in my account right now!!!! So no spending till pay day!

    Yep after a hard days work the last thing you want to do is go out in the cold dark & wet, especially on a bike with some of the drivers about!

    My day was ok - ate too much!! On that note, weren't you hungry yesterday?? If need more than fish fingers & veg for my tea!!

    It's nearly the weekend
