I've lost count how many fresh starts I have had over the years, all I know is this is not my first, second or third.
Over the last few months I have tried MFP, WW, a VLCD and going it alone with "healthy eating". I'm fed up now with messing about and I want to pick a "diet", change my lifestyle and knuckle down. I have a very big short term incentive. I am getting married in 5 months time. My first dress fitting is in 9 weeks and I have set myself the task of losing 28 lbs in time for this. This may seem alot and a little (or alot) ambitious but I set myself this goal when I was determined to follow a VLCD. Now I have changed my mind on this I don't want to lose the goal. I am not the type of person who will feel down about not reaching it, it will just give me something to strive for.
Anyway, I am joining Slimming World tonight and I plan to give it 100% :-) actually looking forward to cooking again and getting back into some swimming.
Since Sunday I have lost 4lbs so my start weight with slimming world will be 4lbs less than my actual start weight.
Wishing myself luck
