Sarah83's Food diary and ramblings...
Well I'm back to SW and Minimins for what feels like the hundredth time!
A bit about me - I have been on SW many times now, most sucessfully in 2010 when I lost 2stones but put it all back on again when I was pregnant with my daughter, who is now nearly 3!
I am currently a big size 18, and the desire to lose weight comes from the fact that I'm really unhappy with the way I look and I have borderline high blood pressure which really needs to come down.
I work full time for the railway industry, and with this and having my little monkey to look after when I get home, means I don't have as much time to cook as I would like. So where before I used to do lots of experimenting with new recipes, I don't think I'll have time to do that so much anymore. Plus before I used to splash out on lots of different foods to try, we are now on a very tight budget thanks to extortionate nursery fees, so I have to be quite frugal with my cooking.
I would love to get down to a small size 14, which I think would be about 3stones. This would still leave me 'overweight' according to BMI but I think I'd be happy with this. I also desperately need to incorporate exercise into my routine. I struggle to find the time to do this at the moment so this will be a challenge for me.
I've given myself a mini-target of losing 1 stone by Christmas. I am a slow loser as I like SW to fit into my life (be it eating out, or occasional lazy takeaway days) which means I don't stick to it 100% of the time, but I want to make sure I have at least 4 100% days a week which should hopefully send me in the right direction!
I hope you enjoy reading my diary, I will include photos when I remember and any recipes if you want them.
Hoping to stick to it this time because it really isn't that hard!!!
