    I've been in that horrible cycle of doing so well in the week, and then messing it all up at the weekends by pigging out. Therefore, I haven't been losing, I've been kind of maintaining. Not what I want at all. :(

    So, it's back to serious business! New diary and all.

    I'll start with a clean state tomorrow by going to the gym in the morning. :)

    good luck :)

    I had the same problem as you and change my weigh in day to a monday as I keep this is mind when I want to pig out a bit at the weekend.

    Thursday is also a hard day for me as I go to my mums and she bakes.... so sometimes I have a mid week peek a th scales to spur me on!

    Try and look at why you're being worse at weekends? Maybe you need a new hobby?

    Good luck at the gym. Wish I could sort some childcare and go a couple of times a week :(

    Today was good for a Sunday, since I usually blow my calories at the weekend anyways. :rolleyes:

    Breakfast:
    2 x weetabix with milk and sugar (250)

    Lunch:
    Potato with salsa (200)


    I was stuck in the house all day with stupid essays and other pieces of work, so I've mainly just had loads of snacks and no proper meals - which is a really bad habit I need to get out of as it is.

    Snacks:
    3 x Cadbury's animal biscuits (330)
    4 x Alpen apple & sultana bars (240)
    Special K mini breaks (100)
    2 x Quality Street chocolates (100)
    2 x Options hot chocolate (100)
    Small bowl of cereal (150)

    TOTAL:
    1500 calories

    Not brilliant in terms of dieting, but I'm really happy I still have a calorie deficit as it is on a WEEKEND (even if it is a small one). :)

    Thanks :) and yeah I usually use my calories up with chocolate and sweets - I know it's very bad but I'm not really a fan of eating big meals. :p

    I'm somewhere around 8 st 7 lbs to 8 st 12 lbs...I don't really like weighing myself because I fluctuate all the time, and I've always exercised so some of it might be muscle...I'm not sure. I'll probably stop when I get to around 8 stone. :)

    My life is quite hectic so the days go by pretty quickly, which is just as well because I'm a really bad boredom eater!! :p

    Haha same! I love just watching TV with a load of food to nom aha. :)

    This weekend has been terrible in terms of dieting! However I'm not annoyed about it since it was my 17th birthday - so I have an excuse to eat loads of junk! :p I'm guessing I've probably put on about a pound of actual fat, but I'm am retaining soooo much water/bloating from sunday dinners, pizza hut, birthday cake and much more crap. :p

    I'm going to go to the gym before school tomorrow morning, so that will be a good start to the day I return back to dieting. :D

    To make up for the crap I've eaten I'm going to need about 2 days of eating NO MORE than 800 calories, and lots and lots of water - then I can go straight back to normal.

    1250 cals is great. esp.nice to see it with 'exciting' food as opposedto run of the mill, 'steamed fish with veg' type food!!
