    Newly engaged so time to slim!!!

    I havent dieted since 2011 and I have been putting it off because of how unhappy it can make me feel. But having been with my OH for 10 yrs and gaining 6 stone, i really want to be happy with myself.

    SW has worked for me best in the past, i truly think it is the best diet, it just requires a high level of organisation (i am a student now, so hoping i can get some healthy habits in place before i start back at uni in oct) Anyway I'm rambling...

    I got engaged in August and am hoping to book the wedding for Spring 2016, so I'd like to get to goal by autumn 2015 so i can buy my dress. Therefore I have the motivation, a goal and a timescale. This is the perfect opportunity to get on top of what i should have done many years ago. Now I'm entering the next stage of my life, I want to be happy & proud to be me.

    Just weighed in & I've lost 4lb! Happy, but I'm wondering what I could have achieved without the 2 meals off plan.

    Going to aim for 3lb off this week so I can get half a stone done and dusted

    Nothing significant going on in the week ahead as i am still off from uni. Have a friend coming for dinner on Saturday night, but she has work early Sunday so won't be expecting to drink lots.

    Meals planned for this week:
    Sausage pasta
    Roast chicken
    Spaghetti bolognese
    Thai yellow curry

    I also plan to do an exercise DVD alternate days along with walking more; i have a fitbit, but my average daily steps is shameful (under 5000) to i am going to aim for 10000 each day.

    I got engaged in August and am hoping to book the wedding for Spring 2016, so I'd like to get to goal by autumn 2015 so i can buy my dress. Therefore I have the motivation, a goal and a timescale. This is the perfect opportunity to get on top of what i should have done many years ago. Now I'm entering the next stage of my life, I want to be happy & proud to be me.

    Hiya, mine is called intense i think, it is interval training, so short bursts of high intensity alternated with breaks to recover your hear rate. Its OK so far and i did ache the following day, although i must admit i have only done it once haha x
