    Talking Nicola's Cuba Countdown

    Hello all,

    I've never been sure about doing a diary before, but I've decided everything is worth a try Would really appreciate all your support and any pointers you can give me as to where I might be going wrong!

    I've been very slowly losing my weight so far, with lots of ups and downs, but now I have a focus and want to really get my head into it, as I've got a holiday to Las Vegas in September, and I am determined to be one of those hot women who struts around the pool in a bikini and heels without so much as second thought about their wobbly bits!

    In order to get to that I want to be 9st7lbs, and as at today I'm 12st4lbs, having lost 11lbs since my heaviest before xmas, so 39lbs to go if my maths is right??

    It feels like such a mammoth task right now, but I want to be slim once and for all, which is why I've set a target that I think is stretching but at which I'm going to feel motivated to stay at once I get there, as I'll finally not be "the fat one"....

    So these are the targets I'm going to set myself:
    * A minimum of 3 exercise sessions a week (gym, zumba, yoga or pilates)
    * Use all my syns each day apart from when I need to save for a special occasion (I think I'm guilty of depriving myself then falling off the wagon)
    * 1-2lb loss each week, with average weight loss per month of half a stone
    * Not letting star week get the better of me!

    Which will hopefully all add up to...
    * 9st 7lb by 4th September 2013 *

    Thank you in advance for your words of support and encouragement, I really am determined this time!!

    Nicola

    Nicola will be taking 3 stone less luggage to Las Vegas!

    Hello...I've come to subscribe! I am the same lost a few stone on diet about 4 years ago and then went up and down ever nice without ever getting to a target. Joined slimming world this time round and already lost a stone and am back to lowest again...and I refuse to go the wrong way ever again!

    We can do it!!

    Ps jealous of the holidays...I have nothing booked so a bikini for me would go unused!

    Okay, so yesterday was a bit of a write off, after me being all motivated and writing everything above! Grrrrrr @ me

    I started well with a gnocchi bake for brunch, but from that point onwards it descended into full-on binge mode and I ate a 100g pack of creme egg minis, a pack of cadbury's tree chocolates (left over from xmas), a chocolate pudding (the ones you put in the microwave with sauce), about a 1/4 of a pack of Tyrells Salt & Vinegar crisps (the big bag), a chocolate krispie snack thing from M&S, and some roasted edamame beans (good for you raw, terrible once roasted like peanuts!)... and felt thoroughly sick by this point so just laid on the sofa and watched a ton of tv. Then yesterday evening I had a Chinese takeaway (which was in my menu plan for the day) but instead of just getting my chow mein as planned I also ordered 1/4 crispy duck and pancakes and some salt n pepper chips - I ended up eating all the duck and about 1/3 of the chips before feeling thoroughly sick again and taking myself to bed!!!

    Sooooo.... today is a new day, and as with every day, the first day of the rest of my life And I intend to get back on track today, so the plan is as follows (EE):

    Breakfast: 2 x poached eggs on a slice of toast (half a HEB)
    Gym: Going to do at least 60 mins + my 55 squats for the 30 day squat challenge!
    Snack after gym: Rocky Road HiFi Light Bar (half a HEB)
    Shopping: Going to park as far away from doors as possible - and shopping list already written for today to Thursday to ensure I don't buy any more treats than necessary
    Lunch: Baked Potato with Beans & Cheese (HEA) + Salad
    Snack: Fruit
    Dinner: The Chow Mein I didn't eat from last night (8.5 Syns)

    Leaving me with 6.5 Syns to play with if the chocolate monster pays a visit

    Wish me luck!!

    We do indeed!

    Ended up doing about 1.45hrs in the gym in the end, and ran for 30 mins for the first time in a long time! Only just home after shopping etc, so jumped straight to dinner and fruit snacks instead of having lunch too... so far so good!

    Update at end of day: Plan stuck to apart from swapping baked potato with beans and cheese for just a 30g portion cheddar (the stuff with Tabasco in it, comes in mini portions, yum!) as wasn't hungry enough to have a third meal.

    8.5 syns and all HEs consumed
