    THE Beginning

    HI!
    So I have tried losing wait for a while now, but it seems I'm just putting it on all the time.
    Breakfast and lunch are fine. Then when I come home it's too early for dinner and I have some food. And then I'll have coffee and biscuits with my boyfriend. And then we have dinner. And maybe some more biscuits.
    I don't know I'm just so tired of this. Trying very hard all day and then just letting it go.
    Will try to note down every single thing I eat and drink (I do have a online food diary but usually I don't write down anything after lunch!)
    I just had a look at the pictures on the gallery here. They are amazing! So happy to see that it is possible.
    I'll try too. Just need a bit of support.

    A bit about me. I'm 28...Been struggling with my weight since I was 3. I was a normal child but then suddenly with couple of months gained weight. Went to doctors and they checked everything but no one knew why it happened. I think it was an evil witch. The same one who gives ladies moustache sometimes
    Anyway...when I was about 16-17 I fell in love for the first time. I think I weighed about the same as I do now. And then I stopped eating. I could go days without food. In the end I weighed about 130 pounds. I know it’s not healthy but I couldn’t help myself!
    I stayed in the same weight for couple of years, and then I met someone who I was with for 4.5 years. By the end of that relationship I weighed 213 pounds. After that ended I lost some and came down to 175 pounds. I maintained that for some years.
    But in recent year or so I've gained weight again. Might something to do that first time in my life I've got an office job. I do cycle to work and back but I don't think it's enough.
    It's awful how obsessed I am with food. I do eat healthy food, at least I try. I don't know how to describe it...I know whoever has problems with eating knows what I'm talking about.
    Anyway...would love to get back to 140-130 pounds again. I liked the clothes in that size more!

    First morning..I'm a bit poorly so I don't even feel hungry.
    Drinking hot lemon water. Apparently it's good for your digestion too when you have it in the morning first thing.
    I didn't go to work today. It's always a challenge when I stay home because the food is just there. And I can take as many breaks as I want to eat something. Well luckily I don't feel so well today and maybe I won’t snack so much! Fingers crossed.
    I weighed myself in the morning now and it's a bit different from yesterday. I'll take it as a weight loss. I need the motivation

    Hi!
    I'm just trying to count my calories. Last week I tried to keep it under 1200. It was 1200 but I didn't count the chocolate and biscuits I'm not eating too much of them but I think I really shouldn't have any because I don't exercise and I've got an office job. I do cycle to work and back but it's only 2x15 mins per day. I guess it's better than nothing.
    I recently discovered smoothies what are really yummy and filling. I make them myself with a bit of low fat yoghurt, skim milk, berries and sometimes a banana.
    What plan are you on? x

    Sounds good to me. I'm trying to stick to slimming world as I like the way there are so many free foods so you always know you can have something at least! I just find it quite difficult to eat out and sometimes it takes me a while to decide what day to do. I think though that it's got good habits which will hopefully stick!!!

    If early evening is a bad time for you try making some homemade veg soup and heating up a bowl when you get in, it will fill you up nicely until dinner and will be easy on the calories.

    Its really easy to make veg soup and will keep in the fridge for about 4 or 5 days quite well. You dont need a recipe as such, just put some veg in a pan, make up some chicken or veg stock or boullion and cook the veg in that for about 20 or 30 mins then wizz up in a food processor or with an electric wand. Tesco sell one for about £7





    I am not a thin person, I am a fat person trapped in a thin body. Yayyy!!!

    Oh that's a brilliant idea! Thank you. I just saw on this program on BBC how soup is very good for you. Much better than solid food with the same nutritional value. I have to make lots because my boyfriend is mad for soups, he'll eat them before I get home

    Had some vegetable soup plus sweet crap - square of dark choc, cereal bar, bit of toblerone, 2 little blackberry muffins I made yesterday
    I've had around 1500 calories all together today.
    I guess it's ok. Tomorrow is another day.

    1500 calories isn't a failure, I know you're trying to stick to 1200, but even at 1500 you're still 500 calories under the daily recommended intake for women.

    Are you planning your food for each day or are you getting to mealtimes and hunger danger spots and grabbing the easy eats? I have to say that if I fail to plan then in reality I am just planning to fail, if that makes sense. It really does make the world of difference.

    Good luck

    Thank you! Yeah I guess you're right. Still when you are planning on something and it doesn't happen feel like I failed. Have to change my thinking a bit to stay positive
    I don't usually plan my meals. It does make sense though to do it. Thanks for the tip! If I would have everything down on paper it would be so much easier. Yes I shall do it today! Thank you!
    I think I have tried to plan too but failed and then planned to fail
    Hope your planning starts working too! x

    Food today so far:
    Breakfast:
    Smoothie what I made yesterday.
    Blackberries, light soy milk, orange juice, linen seed and wheatgerm and fat free yoghurt. Should be around 182 calories.

    Lunch:
    Tin of tuna steak in brine + tomato + fat free vinegrett + 10 raisins.
    130 + 15 + 7 + 30 = 182

    Afternoon snack:
    Danone fat free yoghurt 65
    Vegetable soup 100
    Apple 50

    Ok a bit of naughty stuff too
    After eight 35
    Toblerone triangle 130
    Some chok buttons 30

    Made a fish stew for dinner. It's just veggies and fish. Can't imagine it being more than 300.
    So total today:
    about 1100!!! (might celebrate with another toblerone square...ha! )

    I think today has been ok. I feel like I've eaten loads but looking back to it it isn't like that at all.
    Feel like I would like to have something sweet. Might have some raisins.
    Hope that day 3 goes well too.
