Boredom eater, yoyo dieter, excuse maker....
I've said it before but this genuinely is my last time of restarting!
This is a copy and paste of my previous weight loss diaries, but this is the final time of copying it, this is my time, I am more determined than ever to lose weight!!
I used to be the girl that could eat what I wanted and never put on weight...up until I was 18 I was a size 10-12. I turned 18 and started drinking heavily, resulting in the next day 'hangover food'. The more I drank the hungrier I was the next day. I got into the habit of eating junk and lots of it. I got into a vicious circle...
Hate my size
I find that I eat loads when I'm bored or sad and working in an office 10 hours a day gets pretty boring, so it got to the point I was munching constantly throughout the day. If I wasn't eating at work I'd be hungry when I got home so I'd walk to the shop and buy food I didn't really need whilst dinner was cooking and then stuff my face. I'd then proceed to eat dinner after eating sharing bags of crisps and big bars of chocolate.
I have no excuses for why I eat the amount I have done. It just seems to be that bigger I get the worse my eating habits get. I've decided its time for change in my life. I'm a lot happier now in my life than I've been for a few years, all thanks to an amazing boyfriend coming on the scene. Now I don't feel as miserable about everything I think it's time to change. I am doing this for myself though as he says there's a big difference between wanting to lose weight and needing to lose weight (he says I don't need too;he obviously doesn't know the difference ;))
I started the Tesco's Ultra Slim shakes (04/03/2013) and didn't get on with them at all.
I then tried 'Shake that weight' shakes and hated that even more.
So I joined slimming world on 25/07/2013 and started my first day on 26/07/2013.
I've gained over 4 stone in 2 years and previous attempts at WW have failed. I managed to lose 11lb in 6 weeks there but then put that all back on over Christmas 2011 and then gained a further stone and a half in 2012. Whilst doing WW I kept a diary myself to track how well my days had been etc, however I didn't find it very useful. I feel like if I keep track on here, other people will be able to see it and will be there for advice and support, helping me stay motivated.
So this is me. Sian, a 21 year old girl, 14st 8lb with lack of will power
I rejoined slimming world on 04/06/2014, I had a brilliant first week, a okay second week and a bit of a disastrous 3rd week, in total I have lost 5lbs so far and I'm glad my weight is finally moving in the right direction. After having a bad week I decided to start logging on here again as I find it really helps.
hopefully I'll be able to meet people who are in a similar situation to me and we can encourage each other to finally loose the weight we've been dreaming of.
