New house new start
I everyone, just a little bit about me, my names leanne I have a year and a bit before I hit 40. I recently moved back to my home town, after a break up with my husband. Anyway I had to book in with a GP who insisted in giving me a medical!!! Well that consisted of a colossal weigh in at 24st 0.5lbs!!!! I was heartbroken, the last time I got on a scales I was just under the 20 stone mark!! Admittedly it was a few years ago, I have gone up 2 dress sizes, and I look a lot bigger, but somewhere deep down I thought I still weighed that amount.
I have always been big, not massive, I got married at a size 16, not long after had my first child, and then slowly over the years the weight crept on. My husband reassured me he loved me and I stayed happy in my own little cocoon.
So the GP has prescribed weight-watchers?? I work for the nhs and this was news to me! I have to be honest I feel to ashamed to attend a class, so I sorted online subscription, and I started yesterday!! I have a mammoth 53pp! When I was reading through your diary's I was stunned I have double what some have!! I am totally new to this plan, I have never followed before but I am determined to give it my all!! I have a family wedding the beginning of may, and I know I am in for the long slog, but it would be amazing if I could have shifted a stone or two!!
I have decided to keep a diary so there will be accountability x
Meals for the day
Hot water and lemon juice (read somewhere it's good for you so why not)
Oats so simple apple and blueberry pot 6pp
Mid morning snack
Ww Greek yogurt 2pp
Lunch jacket pot with tuna mayo sweet corn with a side salad 14pp
Shepard's pie with peas and gravy worked out at 15pp
Now this works out at 37pp I have 16pp left, I am working the night shift, and toast with butter is the norm!! And loads of coffee, I will have 2 toast with a little lurpak and a sliced banana and x 5 coffee so with milk that comes to 12pp have some left over but going to not use and try to plan much better tomorrow!! I want out of the toast habit x
Food looks great! Try to take it a day at a time and set small goals. Night shifts are hard...that toast always tastes so good!! I take a few wee cereal bars like alpen light (2pp) or ww cakes to eat with my coffee instead.
Hey subscribing if you don't mind. I used to hate night shift, so hard to eat normally when you are sleeping and waking at all the wrong times. Definately planning is the best way. Best of luck on your journey
Well the night shift was so busy I missed out on the toast!! Not a massive issue. Time for some shut eye and 2 days off to actually plan and get some healthy food in x
Sleep well and yay to two days off! x

That makes 41 pp I still have 11left?? I am convinced I am in way to many points, I have double checked! I assume it's because I am so overweight and I am really tall?
Will have a hot choc made with milk before bedtime to use the rest up x
Don't worry about the amount of pp they will soon disappear with the weight. Enjoy them while you have them. And wine seems like the perfect way to spend them ;)
It is going down really well, so far it does not feel like a diet, I am eating tasty food and plenty of it. But know it's not that easy, if it was I would never have got to this weight x
WW is a great plan, allows us to factor in the things we like, keeps the motivation up. You'll do great xx
Another good day, not feeling hungry yet with all my points that's no surprise.
Crumpets x 2 5pp
Orange juice 2pp
Thins x 2 6pp
Lettuce x 0pp
Ww Greek yogurt 2pp

Philly extra light made into a sauce with course grain mustard mushrooms and onions 3pp

Food looks great! Bought the chilli Philadelphia today myself so gonna try it in pasta this week :) it is surprising how satisfied you can be whilst losing weight!
Great day yesterday. Food looks yummy! x
