    Hey All,

    I'm Loulou129. I've just reached my 20 post milestones so I've been allowed an avatar so what better time to start a little diary than when you can all see who I am.

    I am 22 years old and a full time waitress waiting to start a postgraduate degree in the autumn. I have always been a big lass at 11 years old I was already 5 ft 10 and very very broad so much so that I was often mistaken for a boy haha. I've never truly been happy with my weight and tried various diets including slimming world and Cambridge but I would either starve myself or end up overeating the 'free food' ... far too many free pasta and potato dishes for me on slimming world so much so that I put 1 stone on haha!!

    My kick up the backside came last October. I went on a Mediterranean cruise with my family and partner but the 24 hour unlimited food got the better of me and in 2 weeks I had put on a staggering 2 stone 4 lb. I started trying to count calories but with the lead up to Christmas I failed miserably as my whole family have no self control what so ever during the holiday season so I was constantly being bombarded with cake, chocolate and lots of take aways as we were always too busy tor cook (or so we tried to kid ourselves).


    In January this year I started doing Weight Watchers at home. I started as on online member but after 2 months I cancelled as I couldn't afford the fees. I thought this was the end and that I was going to return to my old ways but I found an amazing app on the iphone called value diary. for one fee I get the same food diary as the ww app without the monthly fee it even works out your points etc.
    I literally swear by this app and without it id feel lost.


    So my starting weight was 16st 5. I was a size 20 bottom and size 18 top but even these were very snug.


    today 15/04/14 I weight 14st 13. Im a size 16/14 bottom and a size 14/12 top. Although I haven't lost a lot of weight .... I still have at least 3 more stone to lose I have lost a lot of inches. I work out as often as I can even if its just a walk around the block.

    I am currently doing the 12 week bikini challenge and c25k but I don't beat myself up if I miss a work out as I work 8 to 14 hour shifts at work running around constantly.


    I would love to share my weight loss journey with you all


    here's to a good week and a happy weigh in xx

    So day one of my new mindset.


    Started the day with a pomegranate green tea, 2 crumpets with 5g butter and 1 sugar free jelly.
    6pp

    Followed this with a 5 hour shift at the pub running around like a loony in the hot weather.

    Came home on a 2 hour split and decided to have a big lunch as i had another 6 hour shift to work and didnt want to be hungry otherwise id raid the sweety tin.

    Made one of my favourites. Homemade nandos.

    Turkey steaks, low calorie coleslaw, light halloumi and treated myself to some mash potato. Topped off with fiery pepper chilli sauce.
    Quite. Hefty lunch as it came to 25pp but as i wasnt having dinner i felt quite happy with that. It also gave me 5 pp left to play with.

    For the first time in 10 days i have had a day where i didnt exceed my daily pp and i have to admit im over the moon. Didnt feel hungry at all and if ive been tempted to snack ive made myself a flavoured green tea and curbed my cravings.

    Reading through the threads ive found a few people saying thay twinings make a gingerbread green tea so when ive finished at least 1 box of my mny other flavours and made room in mu cupboard im off to the shops as i adore gingerbread.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be just as good. Ive volunteered to work 8 hours on my day off as id be home alone and totally tempted to snack and the money is so much nicer haha. Off to the gym in the morning and may even go for a little walk. Feeling very

    So im adding my entry early today as ive been called into work on my day off.

    I was planning a busy day with gym and a run but had to cancel the run as i need to head to work soon.

    Breakfast

    Tropical granola and ss milk
    7pp

    Now ive got overboard with lunch as i need to eat enough to keep me going for 8 hours at work and to stop me picking when i get home.

    Large homemade cottage pie with extra veg.
    32pp

    A very very large lunch i know but im going to be running around constantly from 3pm so i want to be full.

    30mins in gym mainly weight training and taken the pooch for a walk this morning.

    Gone over my dailys by 3 today so im happy with that. Already earnt 8 exercise pp today and still have 10 weeklys left to last until sunday.

    I do find trying to stop myself weighing in when i wake up extremely difficult but i know if i see a loss ill be tempted to overeat so im banning my scales until sunday morning!!!!

    Hi emma. Ive always done slimming world in the past and would lose 7lb then plateau. So far on ww ive lost 1st 7lb but i seem to be stuck again.

    Ive seen that slimfast is half price in superdrug atm so i might give that a go for a week just as a boost.
