Hello! I have a weight loss diary in the Slimming World forum but I've moved away from Slimming World now and onto something completely different so I think it's time for a sparkly new diary to help keep myself accountable I'm now following Paul McKenna's Hypnotic Gastric Band (HGB) programme and throwing in a load of exercise to go with it. I've been following HGB for a couple of weeks now and it's taken a bit of time (and more than a few slips!) to get into the right frame of mind for it but I think I'm there now. I'm supported by my OH, who has decided to go on a calorie controlled diet. This means that my calories will also be limited as I'm not going to cook 2 separate dinners every night but all the food he's going to be eating is food that I like too so I think it should go well. He's going for about 1,700 calories a day so mine should be around that too, if not a little less if I stop eating when I'm full. As for exercise, my OH is taking to the exercise bike for 30-60 minutes a day and I'll be doing Zumba DVDs most nights. Hopefully, the healthy, sensible eating and exercise will be my road to success! I'll be using this diary to post my progress and to admit every slip I have! If I write them down it makes me feel a little ashamed so hopefully this will help me prevent slips! Here we go....!
