Hi everyone,

Never felt the need to do this before, because I always felt like I had endless time to get the last stone off and return back to target (which I was at last July).

I'm going on an amazing trip in just 9 weeks, to a very hot country which I am unlikely to return to again. I desperately want to look good in the pictures I take!

I lost 4lbs last week, this week it all seems to have stalled. I'm going to post my diary to see if anyone can offer me some advice about where I am going wrong, or areas for improvement.

Green Day

Breakfast: Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, 1 x 'Diet' 125g yoghurt (0 syns.)

Snack: 2x Clementines

Lunch: 250g Jacket potato, small tub of fat free cottage cheese, 1x plum

Dinner: 90g Tagliatelle, 4 mushrooms, 5x Laughing cow lights (HeB) - Only ate half of this

Have driven 200+ miles today, exhausted! Managed to go for a 5km run though, which I definitely needed after spending 4 hours cooped up in the car.
Aiming for 3lbs this week - and trying not to look at the scales the entire week. Decided if I wanted that 3lbs, then I have to earn it, so found the motivation to go for a run even though I am tired.
Today has been a success though :)

Another 5km run today. Was supposed to be racing, but I took it a bit too gently around the course and only realised how slowly with about 1km to go...was a nice day though and it is all exercise.

Hoping to try out a couple of EE days this week - when I go to the shop and buy some meat. I feel like I am walking on such a tight-rope to get the weight off before I go away that I'm a bit skeptical incase it doesn't work as well as green... but we must take risks, it may work better, or a change being good for weightloss anyway.

Green days are my favourite - even doing EE today I found I was completely stuck and missed my extra HEs. I've got some meat for next week, but would rather use a smaller amount for my HEb and then bulk it out. Praying for a good loss this week.

I'm going to India :eek:

Have only just realised that I should be posting this in the food diary section not the weight loss diary...oops.
Yesterday was a write off, got taken out for sushi at lunch, and it wasn't as healthy as I thought it was.
