    21 weeks to lose 3 stone and run a marathon...

    Hi! I've just turned forty and have put on 3 stone in the last two years. I've been a regular runner for ages but a foot injury and a broken treadmill (single parent - sometimes the only way I can get a run in) meant I've had a lot of time off.

    I've tried every diet under the sun, but am determined to get to goal on slimming world.
    I have signed up for the Brighton Marathon on 12th April (even though I can only run 2 miles at the mo!) and booked my first beach holiday in a very long time for August. I'm hoping these goals will motivate me to shift the lbs.

    I'm joining the club tomorrow but am starting today...nothing like a Monday for a fresh start and I really don't need any more excuses to stuff my face for another day!

    Wish me luck!

    First day good...but it's normally the third or fourth day I struggle...usually coz of lack of planning and hunger taking over, or being knackered and thinking oh sod it I'll start again tomorrow.

    Am slightly annoyed that I'm eating out tomorrow eve, but I didn't want to wait til wed to start, so I'll just be a little careful and go carefully on my syns the rest of the week.

    So are you officially starting thurs?

    Yay so am under way! I weighed in at 13.8.5 which is a bit less than I thought I would.

    I then went out to eat, to a Chinese buffet...so now on best behaviour for the rest of the week.

    Ex - 2.2 mile run

    B - 2 boiled eggs, banana, skinny cappuccino (A) - first time I've gone for a cappuccino coz it had less milk! Baby steps...

    L - new potatoes and bean & veg stew

    T - Chinese buffet, choc (a zillion syns)

    I did notice that I hoovered food at the buffet so I need to slow down my eating. I eat so fast it's almost embarrassing! So that's a goal for this week - eat slower!!

    Apart from the chinese buffet your menu so far is good. It's also good that you chose a different coffee because of the milk content which shows you're already making better choices. Woooo go you :-) x

    One thing I didn't mention yesterday was that at the buffet yesterday I blacked out twice and the paramedics were called. Don't know what caused it, but I'm feeling v tired and drained today and am not at work. It's played havoc with today's food a bit because I'm definitely wanting certain things...carbs in particular. I guess that's what's good about slimming world...at least I can have them!

    So today is a green day:

    Ex: none

    V late breakfast: bought minestrone soup (Hexb), toast (Hexb), 1/2 Apple

    Lunch baked potato and veg / aduki bean stew

    Snack - skinny latte (hexa), walkers based crisps (5) cucumber

    Tea - SW chips & omelette, liberte yoghurt (1) tea with milk (1)

    Syns: 7
