Okay my skinny jeans are getting a bit (okay a lot) too tight, and they are less skinny and more lumpy if I am honest! Time to get back on track.
Just a bit of background about me. I started dieting about 14 months ago. I had a great goal - my wedding in May 2012. I managed to get just a few lbs away from my target, lost 2 stone and could comfortably wear a size 10. Happy days! I have weightwatchers to thank for that, The first diet I have ever been able to follow for more than 1 week.
I was so happy to be slim again. I reached 9st 9lb and was happy with this, although I had set my target at 9st 6lb. I stopped doing weightwatchers but managed to maintain this weight until Christmas when it all suddenly caught up with me. A combination of slipping back into bad habits and the effect of the miserable weather have had me yo-yo-ing around 10st 7lb. I am currently 10st 2lb.
I need to get this under control before it gets oout of hand. I know now that I can't let things slide. I never want to be fat again. I want to be able to look at pictures of me without cringing with embarassment.
Most of all I need to be able to wear a bikini on my holiday at the end of June without feeling like a bloater compared to my friend. She also does ww but has much better willpower than me, and hovers around a size 8.
So I think a diary will help me to stay on track. I hate to confess defeat...so posting regularly should help. If I vanish you know I am too ashamed to post!
What can I offer you? Well I like to cook from scratch, and have taken time to tweak some standard recipes in order to create WW friendly versions. I swear some are even better than the originals! I hope I can share some recipes and pick up some new ones along the way.
