    The Dieting Housewife

    So this is it! Me kicking the fat once and for all!

    Who am I?
    Well as the title suggests I'm an housewife and a stay at home mummy. I'm 28 years old, 5ft 5" and weigh 14st 12.5lb as of yesterday (27.12.13) Eeek!

    Why now?
    I'm fed up of not fitting in to my pre pregnancy clothes although I can't call it baby weight when my daughter is 3.5 years old! I want to enjoy going out and about rather than worrying about what I'm going to wear! I want to be the old me not the me with 2/3 double chins in every photo. Or the me with back fat when I wear a fitted dress / top.

    Failed attempts?
    The past 3.5 years has been one big fail of an attempt. Following the weight watchers pro points system just hasn't worked for me.

    Successful attempts?
    In 2005 I lost 2 stone from March to August going from 12st to 10st, following weight watchers switch plan.

    The plan I'm following?
    Well I've dusted off my old weight watchers books ready to do it from home, but with my own little twist. Sometimes pointing just isn't an option (like on a all inclusive holiday) so I like the filling and healthy attitude of not counting and eating until your full. I'm therefore going to count points most of the time but opt for a filling and healthy attitude when it's just not an option. When I opt for fh I'm going to allow myself 3pts a day to cover things like mayo etc. I want to add exercise in to my routine and use my gym membership. I'm going to set my own fitness targets each week. My wi will be Friday to keep me on track at weekends and my measurements / progress photos will be taken every 4 weeks.

    My goals
    10lb off by 27th Jan 14 (Egypt Holiday)
    Maintain whilst in Egypt for two weeks.
    21lb off by 21st March 14
    28lb off by 2nd May 14
    35lb off by 6th June 14
    42lb off by 18th July 14
    49lb off by 8th August 14
    Maintain whilst on holiday for two weeks
    Reach goal of 58.5lb by Christmas 2014

    What a day to start, hubbys bday. I knew I was going to go over I just wanted to make better food choices. Family had pizza and chips I had Chicken tikka kebab and chips.

    Breakfast 1.5pts:
    4 rings of pineapple 1pt with 100g low fat greek yoghurt 1/2pt

    Dinner 7pts:
    ww chicken curry 4.5pts with a ww pitta 1.5pts

    Tea 33pts:
    Chicken tikka kebab 12pts with a portion of chips 7pts followed by a piece of cake 5pts washed down with a bottle of wine 9pts

    Daily Points: 23
    Points Used: 40.5
    Points Saved: -17.5 (total -17.5)

    Like I said I knew I'd go over but had I not tried to be good with my options it would have been soooooo much worse. Plan of action? Bite it write it which I did so now I move on! Here's to an even better slimming day

    Impromptu buffet at my grandmas and wrongly guesstimating some mini onion bhajis means I've gone over again. If I wasn't watching though it would be far far worse!

    Breakfast 1.5pts:
    4 pineapple rings 1pt with 100g low fat Greek yoghurt 1/2pt

    Dinner 8pts:
    Two slices of bread 2.5pts with 55g of red Leicester cheese 5.5pts

    Tea 18pts:
    60g pasta 3pts with tuna 1pt, then an impromptu buffet means 3 mini onion bhaji for 6pts onion ring 1pt potato wedges 1pt 2 pieces of garlic bread 2pts and pork pie 4pts

    Daily Points: 23
    Points Used: 27.5
    Points Saved: -4.5 (-22 total)

    Feeling pleased with myself because I came home and googled the nutritional info so even though I went over through wrongly guesstimating I haven't cheated. Tomorrow is going to be an interesting one with another buffet this time at mine. Hopefully I will have my cheat sheet handy in the kitchen with everything pre pointed so I will know what's on my plate beforehand.

    60g of pasta 3pts with a tin of tuna 1pt and salad 0pts
    This is now where it goes wrong through wrongly guesstimating whilst mentally counting my points up. Once home I googled all of*the nutritional info so I know this is correct.
    3 mini onion bhajis 6pts onion ring 1pt potato wedges 1pt 2 pieces of garlic bread 2pts and pork pie 4pts.

    Daily Points: 23
    Points used: 27.5
    Points Saved: -4.5 (-22 total)

    I'm not annoyed or upset at going over again I'm more pleased with myself for not giving in and instead coming home and writing it. Some food victory has been gained because I turned down cakes, triffel, chocolate and other sweet treats.

    Hi Cheese Thief thanks for popping by and following my journey I know this week is a funny week to start but I also know if I wasn't trying I'd just gain excessively more! I've got a family buffet today at my house but I'm hoping to have a cheat sheet handy to not go over. Lisa x x x

    I pulled my back out earlier today feeling very sorry for myself. Tomorrow is not going to be a very good day with lots of booze and NY day is going to be soaking up the booze with my bro in law and sis in law staying over. I'm tempted to weigh in tomorrow so I know where I am and then go back to my Fri weigh in next week? Input greatly received.

    *waves* Hi everyone thanks for following and joining the journey

    I've been so busy yesterday and today has been spent nursing a very very bad hangover so you can imagine that for two days I've been off plan! BUT I did weigh in yesterday (two days early) and lost 2.5lb so I now have exactly 56lb to go. This has just proved to me that even off track and tracking can achieve something! Back to it tomorrow!

    Happy New Year to you all here's to a healthier and slimmer year!

    New Year . . . New Me

    Today has been all about preparation, you know the old saying Fail to prepare Prepare to fail well I've been preparing a four week food rota.

    I've planned all of my favorite evening meals over four weeks, means I won't feel I'm missing out and I won't get bored. The plan is to only buy food in for the week for what is planned. Less waste and hopefully a smaller waist

    Next plan of action is to sort out my exercise plan. I get bored easily so I want to try do a 4 week thing again to keep my interest.

    Here's to preparing to get the body I want
