Hello all, my name is Kerry I am 25 and I am from Swindon. I was one of those people who used to be very slim when i was in my teens and always joked around and said "Ohhh I dont have to watch what I eat...I will never let myself get fat" hmmm well a few years later and weighing in at a whopping 16st 13lbs here I am!
I am the fussiest eater in the world so I have always been quite scared of "diets" as such. I have tried so many different things...I have tried Cambridge diet for a while...that was so difficult but I did have some good results, it was the maintaining part I found the most difficult because I didnt like any of the food you were supposed to eat. I have now figured out that healthy eating is the way forward as not only will it help me loose weight, but it will be easy to maintain and will benifit my health massively.
So I have decided to start this diary to keep me motivated and hopefully meet a few people that I can help motivate along the way!
When I say that I am a fussy eater...I really am not exagerating. I dont eat pasta or rice, not 1 item of salad and very few vegetables. I used to eat no vegetables until I was hypnotised...I have to say it was an interesting experience and it helped slightly as I now eat carrots, swede, parsnips and sweet potato. It has also helped me with trying new food as I never used to try anything new, and I also wouldnt be able to touch a food i dislike let alone put it in my mouth. I have now been able to chop foods up and put them in different foods that I can hide them in :-)
I weighed in for the first time on 26th August and lost a HUGE 8lbs in my first week (YAY go me!!!)
2nd week on the 02nd September I lost 1lb despite going for numerous meals out so was pleased with this!
3rd week on 09th September - Missed this weigh in as had a hospital appointment! Was good this week though!
