My Starting from Scratch Diary - with some Foodie Pics x x
Lil bit about me... I've been here before, but not so big! I originally started SW in 2010 after I got engaged to lose weight for my wedding in May last year. I did well, lost almost 4 stone, was so much happier with myself...
But after my honeymoon(s) the weight crept back on... I'd gained a stone and half before I'd been married a month! It's been a bit of a downward spiral (weight wise) since then, I knew I was getting bigger but I didn't really get HOW big still I saw some shocking numbers on my scales this morning...
Instead of getting me down it's spurred me on to do something about it! I'm going on holiday (all inclusive, bleh) 2 weeks tomorrow and although I know it's too late to do anything much about it, I know I could make it worse if I don't try!
So... Here goes... I'm gonna try by myself for a while, I hated going to group before... I never stayed, would just get weighed and run... I have the most recent set of books (I think!) and Google helps with syn values... But would appreciate any help if I look like I'm going way off track!
Day 1 - Whoop! (Extra Easy)
(Breakfast) - 2 x Alpen Light bars - Chocolate and Fudge (HEXB) and a Tangerine
(Lunch) - Salad - Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Peppers, Red Onion and Asda Chinese Chicken Skewers (1) Mullerlight - Cherry, Asda Pineapple Lolly
