My Weight Story 2014!
Hi again! New year, new diary time!!
Last year was a weight roller coaster - started it at 19st 11lbs, got down to 15st 12lbs, regained alot due to changes in situation and allowing bad habits back in! Have started 2014 at 18st 1lb, so at least im nearly 2 stone less than i started 2013!
My plan for starting off again is -
Start healthier eating immediately!
Start running again on tuesday 7th january (when kids are back at school!)
Swim once a week and kinect dance etc once every day.
Generally make better choices and regain the good habits i adapted and then lost last year!
See how this pans out!!
Starting 2014 single, motivated and trying to sort myself out, finally for me though, and cut my reliance on men for my self esteem, learn to like who i am etc etc!

Hiya Claire, I'm starting again for 2014 as well. As you said, you're doing well to be that two stone lighter! I'm doing a lot of work on the emotional/self esteem side of things as well as getting rid of the excess weight. We will do this!
Food today (pretty haphazard as im doing the big shop tomorrow!)
Breakfast - slice 50/50 toast with philli light
Lunch - Jacket potato with cottage cheese and wholegrain
Dinner - pasta with roasted peppers, red onion and garlic , with a little olive oil and philli light.
snacks - fruit tea, sweet peppers
As of tomorrow my aim is more of a varied diet, getting more protein and less starch and to add in more healthy snacks.
Has been a housework and arts day with the kids so ill do about 45 of just dance on the kinect tonight - gets me meeeega sweating lol!!
Feeling pretty positive today, done my start of 2014 pics to compare at the end, eek!!! have also started a jar where every day i write something that made me happy or thankful, or something i acheieved and put it in to read this time next year, this year is all about grasping a more positive outlook and letting go of the negativity :-)
i think this is the only way im going to sort out my weight is of i sort out the other stuff too! good luck luv :-) how much you aiming to lose?

Learning to love yourself is a massive step in the right direction lovely! This is a step I'm trying to get my head around also. Apparently if you learn to love yourself you automatically start treating your body in a healthy manner and in turn lose weight. It's hard to change 33 years of negative hate filled thoughts about myself, but this year I'm going to try. All the best to you xxxx
thanks so much <3 ive had a few very difficult years where theres been no option but to feel sad, angry, tired, resentful etc, so i feel its up to me now that those circumstances have changed, to try and be the change in myself.

Well done claire. I've started my diet this year too after managing to put a stone and a half after quitting smoking after 33 years. What I have learned through that is that will power can be your biggest friend, without it I would have failed so I am applying the same principles to my dieting.
hey all, been internetless for a couple of days!!!
had a rought couple of days been ill :-( on the up though and back to it, eating fine but not been writing it down :-)
am thinking of starting a vlcd again as a starting boost to get m moving, always found the speed of losses very exciting lol, shall see how i go though!
didnt get out for a run today or yesterday cos of being unwell but did a bit of just dance kinect both evenings and been sooo sweaty and bleurgh - all good!!
at the doctor she took my blood pressure and was perfect as well as a quite slow heart rate, which doc said indicates good physical fitness and actually gave me praise for being big but keeping myself relatively healthy :-)

I'm subscribing too. I'm also aware of the importance of uncovering the why's as well as changing what I'm eating.
God, have had a major slip up, was at hospital with my son on Monday for a small operation but that place always triggers me. I spent 4 years in and Out with my older son for leukaemia and all I did in there was eat, back to it tomorrow, but angry with myself for letting it continue for days :-( New start tomorrow, clean slate.
