    I have yo yo dieted and lost weight doing very low cal diets, now I want to do it healthy :)

    I enjoy cooking, when I have time so want to try and cook lots of healthy meals for me and hubby :) using natural ingredients. am going to have a hunt round to see if there are so recipes about on the forum.

    i have just turned 30 :) and want to be healthy. I am just over 15 stone and at 171cm I am obese :( I am in this for the long hall. So I am looking at loosing 1.5lbs a week to begin with. I have just joined food focus, which has worked out I can have 1350 cals a day. I don't do any exercise other than the odd bit of walking.

    My aim to to be somewhere near 10 stone next aug time.

    We go on away mid sep and if I could I would like to be around 14 stone by then, then at 13.9 stone my BMI will be overweight rather than obese :) and ideally I would like to be 13 stone by Christmas, but we will see.

    Ok, so I was still hungry on 1350, so have upped it to 1600 cals a day and will see what happens. i should loose 1bs a week :) On the plus side yesterday i ate all healthy food bar 2 chocolate buttons :) so i am sure I am eating less fat than normal :)

    So i properly started my "diet" on sat and I had a sneaky weigh in this morning and was 209.6 lbs so I must be doing something right :) I know lots of that is prob water weight maybe cause of the less rubbish I am eating.

    Think I might use this as a food diary as the food focus site keeps logging me out!Grrrrr!!!

    I need to look into what I am supposed to keep my fat under a day.My aim for today is to drink 2 L of water. i am off to a good start with 500mls of hot water and a squeeze of lemon :)

Going to add sweet pot with normal one as figure sweet pot may have more vits!

    200 mls milk 70- bit left over which i will use in my decaf tea
    20g raisins-60 cals
