This has to be the year . . . . .
So I've been on this site a few times and always found it very inspiring. I've been on and (mainly) off diets for a good 20 years or more - I successfully lost 4 stone with WW 20 + years ago when my eldest son was born - and have slowly and surely got bigger every year since! :( I've tried loads of diets, WW, SW, Low carb, but always come back to WW as I struggle badly with portion control! (I'm a greedy "duck").
2013 has got to be the year I lose this weight once and for all and I had every intention of starting in a positive way - hitting the gym/classes/pool 5 times a week and sticking to my points - but we've all had the most horrendous flu so it hasn't quite worked out that way so far, although I think my first week has gone ok - I weigh in on Wednesday mornings and I'm doing ProPoints on my own at home.
I'm now 42 and a busy mum and full time legal secretary and if I don't do it this year I don't think I ever will. I love eating out and the occasional glass of wine with my OH and am looking forward to my hols in Turkey in June - going back to see friends we met two years ago and would love for them to notice a difference!
I've tried all sorts of motivation but thought I would try keeping an online diary so that everyone can see when I go off track. I've got about 6 stone to lose and would love to hear from anyone in Lancashire/Yorkshire area who would like some mutual support.
I'll report back tomorrow with my first week's weigh in and my food diary - wish me luck!;)
