Helloooo! My name is Erin and I am ready to start my serious journey to Slimville! Well, Healthyville actually. I want a better lifestyle overall, not just a smaller waistline. My weight history is a little rollercoaster-esque, a bit messy...you know how it can get. Here's a quick run-down: Heaviest - 14st 4lbs (September 2012) Lightest - 8st 12lbs (January 2007, aged 19 - achieved on Cambridge diet -2st in 2 months) Current - 12st 13lbs (achieved by calorie counting and more recently exercising since September) After my Cambridge Diet stint I steadily gained until I was around 11st where I managed to stay for a few years (2008-2009). After that the weight crept up on me and here I am now. 25 years old and ready to re-educate myself and become a healthier and happierperson. Now lets get down to the nitty gritty: today's intake! B - fruit and fibre cereal with semi-skimmed milk and a banana 316 L - cooked ham and salad sandwich on wholemeal bread with lighter mayo 278 D - Chicken and black bean sauce stir-fry (no noodles, beansprouts instead) 274 Ds - small slice of apple pie 296 Others: 1 glass orange juice at 99cal, 2 litres water. Exercise: 30 mins Dance Central. Total calories: 1266. I've been using an online calorie counter to help me keep track of things. You wondering about that apple pie up there? Without that my calorie intake was below 900 and I just fancied a wee treat. I've lost 4lbs this week and can't remember the last time I had a 'naughty' food so I figure I can indulge (A LITTLE!!) once in a while... Thanks for stopping by. I'm gonna try and update this every day so don't be shy. Say hello Over & Out for now.
