Katie Cupcake's attempt at slimming down!
I joined Slimming World last week and weighed in at 11st 8lb (although on my home scales I'm 11st 6lb - much prefer my home ones, but assuming SW's are much more accurate!)
I used to manage to keep my weight steady as I did a lot of exercise (played roller derby for about 7 hours a week plus some time at the gym and a generally very active lifestyle). I've always eaten relatively sensibly but didn't have to worry about it too much with exercising. Unfortunately I was recently diagnosed with ME, and due to the fatigue and sheer exhaustion, I haven't been able to do any exercise at all for around 3 months now. Plus I am a lot less active generally than I used to be, having to rest a lot etc.
As expected, the lack of exercise soon resulted in weight gain! I decided it was time to do something about it when my clothes started getting a bit too tight... I can't afford a whole new wardrobe lol! I go to group (second weigh in tomorrow) but like the idea of posting my food diary on here to keep track and keep me accountable! So here goes...:p
