    Hello all so a brief introduction my name is Tamara I've been on here for a while but over on the dukan forum I dropped from 14st11 to 10st5 following that plan and I loved the strictness of it all but then last year after coming off it I started calorie counting and dropped to 8st12 unfortunately I wasn't eating enough calories to maintain that weight and had a few silly health problems from it :/ and after a bit of bad news at Christmas I slowly put the weight back on last week I was 10st4lbs that's when I decided enough was enough and I have lost 3lbs since then but I decided Dukan wasn't for me anymore and I want to give calorie counting a go but this time making sure I hit my 1500 calorie a day goal estimated by mfp, I'm off to Tenerife in 11 weeks time and if I lose 2lbs a week by then I can be at my goal weight of 8st7lbs for the holidays so fingers crossed :)

    So my diary for today goes like this:

    B: Porridge
    L: Prawn mayo sandwich, apple, grapes
    D:Dukan Stew

    So my bf decided to start cal counting with me yesterday and joined mfp and that made me reevaluate my goals on there because they were wrong and my calorie allowance for my goal is 1200, also yesterday we decided to be a bit naughty foodwise before starting properly soo first weigh in tomoz prob won't be great but I'm still going to weigh because i'll know what I've lost in a week for next Saturday then :)
