Hi - Just starting my SW journey
Hi everyone, as the title says I'm am just starting out on SW. I've been a dieter for as long as I can remember, mostly calorie counting or WW. Had success in the past with WW after the birth of my children but have found that its just not for me any more, I'm always hungry on it and tend to get cravings and just end up eating rubbish again. I was recommended SW by a friend, who has lost 3 stone so far. I'm really trying to get out of the yo yo dieting!!
So I'm 42, married with 3 children. I'm 5ft 9" and weighed in last week at 14st 12lb. It's the heaviest I've been since I was pregnant, I'm really not feeling myself and I want the weight shifted. Ideally I would like to lose 3 stone, but The first target I've set myself is a stone. I really want to get into my head that this is for life and not a quick fix solution.
ive been reading through the forum for a few days and have been really inspired by the stories and pictures on here.
This is my 5th day on the diet and I'm feeling good. Haven't had any cravings yet and I'm managing to stick to the rules. I'm following the EE plan on some days and the Green plan on others. Having been a WW for years it's difficult not tot hunk about counting calories or points but I'm being mindful of my portion sizes and trying to listen to my body more.
i haven't felt this motivated to start a diet in a long time. I'm fed up of eating rubbishy and feeling rubbish. Would welcome any feedback and support from anyone and I'll keep you posted on my weigh ins etc.
thanks for reading
