    I've done it before - time to do it again! My weight loss diary

    This time last year I joined minimins under a different username and have to admit that I made a very good start under slimming world. However, due to circumstances (which I'll go into more depth about shortly) that in all honesty I let beat me, I've put every single lb back on (if not more).

    I want to start my new diary by thanking someone - Linz. This evening she messaged me on facebook to see where I had disappeared to and I actually messaged her back saying that I wouldn't be coming back for a while because of these circumstances. But after clicking send, I thought to myself, why should I let things beat me and got back on here and re registered under a new username.

    The past few months I have been a big comfort eater as I let things with mum get on top of me. For people who don't know me - she's severely disabled, in a wheelchair 24/7 and has quite a few life threatening illnesses. A few months ago a big meeting was held about her at the dr's surgery and the health professionals have started to put things into place such as a living will and a dnr (do not resuscitate) order, should she slip into a coma. She got sent for an ecg, panicking us all and we now all have to go for counselling

    Add to this my fiance's mother, who has been trying to take over my wedding plans, tried to make me buy a wedding dress to small for me and who is just being a general cow. Every single time we're over visiting his family, she always has to turn around and ask me how the diet is going (in front of lots of people) and then lecture me on how I should be eating less and moving more.

    And then on top of this my dad's family are being idiots yet again, but I'm not even going to get into that as some of them have chosen to cut ties with us, despite us having done nothing wrong.

    So, as you can see, loads has been going on and I will 100% admit that I haven't been as focused as I should have been. So this is what the new year is about, which I'll go into detail on my next post.

    I don't know how many people's diaries I'll be able to get to with me being a new member, but, I'll try my hardest to get in touch with the wonderful people who kept me going on my old account.

    Food

    This has been my majoy downfall over the past few months and I really need to start getting things back into shape. I know slimming world worked for me but I want to be able to give myself a bit more freedom with the hexa and hexbs, so what I'm planning on following is a combination of slimming world and slim fast.

    Breakfast and evening meal is going to be roughly based on slimming world, such as the cooking in fry light, extra veggies etc. But lunch is going to be a large fruit salad, plus a slim fast milkshake as well as 2 litres of water every single day.

    I also need to go out and buy myself a new slow cooker as I managed to destroy my old one by leaving it on high for 6 hours to cook a chilli con carne (I thought it was set at low - obviously not). So, one night, we came back home and the place stunk of VERY well done chilli

    Hi emms


    Found you here I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. That must be awful to have to face. I'm
    Not sure what to say apart from we are here for you so vent as much as you want.

    As for your MIL, how very dare she make comments like that. Your fiancé is marrying you because he loves you as you are. It's none of her business what size you are. Hugs

    Cute doggy...

    Good luck with your food plan, let us know how you're doing x

    Sounds like a good plan Em. I did the same sort of thing with my slow cooker. Have you seen the new one with a split pot so you can do 2 meals at once, sounds good.

    Bruce looks lovely I bet you have your hands full keeping him in order.

    Sorry to hear about your family issues, it's hard to focus on losing weight when life is throwing all this other stuff at you. Can you politely tell your MIL to butt out and leave you to get on with it or do you need her help for other stuff?

    Don't know if you're up for it but a new WMR challenge has just started.

    Lisa, it's the 20th of July ... I was about to say next year, but it's this year

    We kinda knew it was coming with mum, but didn't really expect the drs etc to throw themselves into it so quickly. It's as if they're expecting something to happen

    I'd love to be able to tell her to butt out PP but she's making things so difficult for me when I go over there, it's horrible. I'm dreading going over there tomorrow, but it's something I'm going to have to just put up with if I want to get across to the trafford centre.

    I won't join this WMR challenge, but maybe the next one once I'm back in the swing of things. I need a new battery for my scales so can't update my weight for a while, but will do so asap

    I'd love to lose 4 stone, will try, but anything over 1.5 stone will be a bonus

    I ordered the slim fast tubs when they were on half price at boots and stocked up on 2 months worth to see how it goes. I got the banana and chocolate flavour, but I was thinking with the chocolate flavour, I could get the alpro hazelnut milk and maybe it would taste a bit like a nutella milkshake? Maybe I'm being a bit overly adventurous

    I think for my first back on plan meal (other than breakfast) on tuesday evening, I really fancy some ham, mixed salad, dollop of cottage cheese and some pickled onions

    I really need to get some batteries for the scales so that I can find out how much damage I've done

    Love your first meal back on plan. Hope you get a replacement slow cooker soon and you can start back cooking yummy dishes again x
