Jenna's 2013, back on track and getting to goal diary.
I'm Jenna, 24 and from Northern Ire.
Decided I needed a fresh start as I've been having a particularly hard time staying on plan since Christmas. It is my intention to get back on it properly from tomorrow morning, Monday 7th January.
My story so far....
I started SW on March 5th 2012, I joined online for 3 months and initially weighed in at 12 and a half stone. I've always been ''the fat one'' and ''the funny one'' and tried to tell myself I was ok with it and was built that way. It wasn't until a friend uploaded pics of a night out on facebook that I realised how big I'd become. I've been following Green and EE since starting and have loved them both, I tend to do more Green days now.
I haven't (until recently) found SW hard and have enjoyed the weightloss process, I weighed in yesterday and was 8st 9.5lbs which I NEVER thought I'd get to as my initial goal was 10st...it's funny how you can be unhappy at a weight you never even thought was achievable lol! I think I thought losing weight would fix all my problems which obviously it hasn't and I don't know if that's why I'm struggling recently as I'm still unhappy with various things (God, you guys know more about me than my family and friends lol)
I'm planning on getting back on track tomorrow morning, I also start a new job tomorrow which is stressing the life out of me already so I'm 'treating' myself to a takeaway tonight.
I really want to get to goal but think I could be happy even if I was back down to 8st 7.5 which has been my lowest weight so far.
Hoping to keep it positive this time and not worry about when things may go wrong, I need to focus on getting back on it and doing my best.

Hi Jenna, just popping in to subscribe to your new diary! Good luck
Hi Jenna Happy New Diary and Good Luck x
I'm looking forward to more of this.....Hoping to keep it positive this time and not worry about when things may go wrong, .....but don't make that something for you to stress about either as we all feel crappy sometimes x Big hugs x
P.s I still think you look great even in last years pic but you do look stunning in this years and that inspires someone like me who never thought they would possibly be an 18 let alone a 14 wonder if they could get even a little bit smaller (unfortunately I can't get younger again though!
Hey. Popping to subscribe too x
Haha! Im having my last naughty day today as well, as had a week of it tutut! This will be our year Jenna & have a pop over to the 8's thread to see my post about our aims/goals this year.
P.S You looked stunning last year, but like me prefer the slimmer version of oneself lol! x
Thanks for the support ladies Means alot!
I'm hoping getting back in to routine will help things as I think it's being off everyday is giving me time to think about naughtiness and hopefully running round after the kiddies (Ages 5 and 6) will give me a teeny bit of exercise...every little helps.
Tomorrow is planned, and I know I shouldn't but I am going to try and have a lower syn week to make up for naughtiness.
Monday 7th January 2013-The plan.
Shreddies, banana and milk (A and B)
Fruit salad (frozen fruit from tesco and some fresh pineapple and apple)
Baked potato, spaghetti hoops and veg.
If I'm hungry I'm hoping to snack on pineapple or apples.
Hello my little chickadee - Stressing is not good - have your treat tonight and back on plan tomorrow. I know you can do it and everyone on minis will be your support. Chin up hunni x
I agree a treat night tonight is a good idea, get it out of your system, also you deserve to celebrate your new job good luck tomorrow.
You look stunning in both your pics btw, especially this years.. You've done so well try and remember that when you start being too hard on yourself.
One thing I would say is although I sometimes have low syn days after some naughty days, if you do feel like having something have it and don't beat yourself up, sometimes making ourselves feel deprived can just make us eat more rubbish
Hey Jenna, although I knew your story, reading your story is great. I agree you look fab in both photos but its how we feel within ourselves. Still jealous of your pins. Don't stress too much about your first day at new job, its never as bad as you think. Look forward to reading up your diary. Good luck for tom x
Just wanted to say although im not a SW girl just yet (intend to once I finish lipotrim) when I started the whole losing weight process I found yout 2012 food diary and read that for inspiration and honeset you probs dont realise but you truly inspired me to lose weight. I know from reading your 2012 diary you can be quite hard on yourself!! you look abolutley fab.i got to 8st 6 just before Christmas but than had amassive binge and pu some weight on. Its funny about target weights and trying to lose that last bit is hard, i know at the end of the day you need to get to a trget weight that you are happy with, i would love to be 8st 3lbs but have changed my target to 8st 7 as i cant bear the thught of having to lose another stone so thought i will try nad get t 8st 7. but, i do wrry sometimes that i am getting a bi obsessive and trying to go to low which is just as bad as being overweight so just wantedto say, you look beautiful and slim, just dont look skinny! i look healthy at 9 st 2 and i looked slim at 8st 6 so would love to get back to looking slim. id say i was a size 8 - 10 then. at the end of the da, do whats right for you, best wishes and look forward to joining the SW forums when i get to goal to maintain.
Good luck Jenna, your original start weight is the same as mine now so I will definitely be following your progress!
You look amazing, a true I inspiration! Well done on your journey so far.
