So I thought I would give this diary writing a try. I want to have something to go to everytime I feel the need to go off plan etc. My problem is I need sort term goals to keep me on track for my longer term goal. I orginally started S&S back in March and my aim was to be at goal by July/August. I was doing well. Then I became ill, had glandular fever then sadly a few weeks ago I suffered a miscarriage. I came off plan in April when I was first ill. Now I have the all clear to get cracking again. I love this diet. It works! I need to see results to keep me interested. I need my jeans falling down, my knickers not clinging to anything, tops looking like a tent. I thrive from the positive results, the compliments, the wow you look hot from my hubby (although he is a sweetie and says it all the time). Some may think it shallow but it's my way of knowing I am doing good.
I am a daily weigher for my sins- scrap that.... if I'm home I will weigh everytime I go for a wee or past the bathroom!!
In the past I have done slimming world. It was good BUT it didn't teach me anything and as soon as I went back to eating "normally" the weight came back. I would try and convience myself that oooh thats only a couple syns- and wonder why I would loose a lb a week!! As for shakes I have tried slim fast but yuck!! and maxitone - double yuck. The shakes are to powedery!! I love milkshakes but I like them with ice cream and oreos in them or frigg chocolate shake! thick and creamy!!
I have now set myself mini goals on my ipad-
a stone by feb
2 stone by april
3 stone by july
4 stone by september
In reality I want to be 7 stone lighter by August BUT I am not pressuring myself. If I do I won't get there!!
There are 2 reasons why I am doing slim & save- a) I want my life back. It sounds dramatic but I am 26. I want to be able to walk into River Island, see something and buy it. Not think will the size 18 fit me? Will it suit me? I don't want to put it back and go to the fat section in New Look! I want amazing clothes to go with my gorgeous shoes and handbags! As a big girl who loves fashion all my spare money is spent on shoes and bags!!
b) I want to be a mummy! I have been TTC for 5 years! I have PCOS and it depresses me that this condition is largely the reason I am so overweight! But it won't beat me. I will get back to a size 10/12 and I will have a baby! 2013 is my year!
