    Embo's Journey. Lost 1 lb this week. 63 lbs total :)

    I started my weight loss journey on January 17th 2013. I was 19 stone 0.5 lbs. I was on my way to depression and basically hated myself. I was severely restricted in what I could do, I even had to ask for help carrying my baby upstairs

    I'd lost weight with Weight Watchers a few times but I always lost enough to feel good about myself and then I'd give up, gain all the weight back but each time I gained even more on top!

    My motivation was my wedding dress. I bought my dream dress five sizes too small. Risky but it worked! On July 27th I put on that dress and felt a million pounds! I'd lost 66 lbs and felt absolutely amazing!

    Since the wedding I've slowly started slipping back into bad eating habits. In the back of my mind I knew I could gain as much as I wanted because I'd discovered VLC diets and knew I could lose it very quick if I set my mind to it. The only problem was I was in a bad cycle again. I'd lose up to 18 lbs on VLC but then gain it all back.

    Last week I decided to put an end to the cycle and take back control and I knew the best way to do that would be to face the weight watchers scales. I went to be weighed on Thursday morning and since the wedding I've gained 11 lbs.

    I now have a brand new fresh start. I'm doing the 30 Day Shred again (day 3 today) I've got my pedometer on daily and I'm drinking my 3 litres of water a day.
    I've been shopping and bought myself lots of healthy foods and I'm raring to go.

    I hope to make some new friends on my journey to goal. THIS TIME I WILL DO IT. I WILL GET TO GOAL. I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!!!

    Hey rosied

    I'm on 31 propoints per day and have 26 weeklies left (damn red wine!!). I very rarely use all my weeklies but always use some. I earn between 6 and 12 activity points per day too but I never eat these.

    I'm also still breastfeeding but I don't use my 7 extra points for this because he's self weaning at the moment and so I only feed him a couple of times through the day and once during the night. I really don't think these few nursing sessions add up to 7 points!!

    It's an exercise DVD by Jillian Michaels (one of the trainers from Biggest Loser USA) It's really tough but only 20 minutes long so you know the end is near haha!!

    You should check it out. I started off doing it from You Tube for free but then I bought it cos it was on offer on Amazon for a fiver

    How old is your daughter? She sounds very healthy. Both my daughters are extremely weight conscious. Sometimes it worries me if I hear the word fat (they're both a size 8!)

    I had no plans last night. I work weekends so I rarely do much unless it's important or I have booked time off. I did manage to cook a beautiful dinner - fillet steak with mushrooms and hm sweet potato wedges with a rocket, pine nut and Parmesan salad! It was so yummy
    i also got tonight's dinner started by making and marinadng the chicken ready for when I get in We're having sesame chicken. I'll post the recipe if you like

    Here to subscribe - wow well done on losing 66lb for your wedding. My attempt at weight loss for mine was an epic fail and I hate my photos as a consequence but at least it has driven me to start WW and stick to it properly. No more yo-yoing for me either.

    It sounds like you can cook too so I will be interested to see what fab feasts you come up with.

    Good luck!

    I haven't had the chance to update on my days off because I've been so busy but I lost 4 lbs last week yaay!! 59 lbs total.

    I joined the gym. It's one of those schemes were you pay 12 and get a 12 day pass. I'm absolutely loving it, even tried out Zumba last night which is something I've always wanted to do. I'll definitely be going again cos it was awesome

    rosied, I'll post that recipe when I get home from work. It really does liven up a chicken breast

    Sorry ununpentium and maria I only just noticed your posts.

    I lost 50 odd lbs with weight watchers and then three weeks before my wedding I went on a VLC diet because my friend recommended it to lose large amounts of weight (I still didn't fit in my dress) I gained all that back before re commiting to Weight Watchers.

    Maria I'll definitely share my recipes on here. When I get a minute to get on here!! Since joining the gym and exercising more I just don't have two minutes to myself!

    I had to leave the gym early yesterday becuase of awful toothache. I was up most of the night with it but I'm going to the emergency dentist at half 3 so I'm hoping it'll get sorted later, I honestly can't take much more. I only had three hours sleep too and I'm in work til 3

    Last night we had a takeaway - Indian with all the trimmings. I really shouldn't have because I didn't work out enough to warrant it.

    Hopefully I can pull it back before Thursday
