i have not been a member long and have just been meandering through other peoples posts answering and joining in where and when, but today i have decided to start a diary. new to this, really not done it before but if it helps me in any way and helps anyone else along the way that is just a bonus:p

i am mother of the bride in april!!!!!!

first thinks "me feel very old!!"

then thinks "me too fat for wedding photos!!" (which,lets face it , will be around a few years haunting me if i dont do something about it)

so my plan is slimming world and exercise.
which i can do when i put my mind to it
i just find it hard sticking to it lately

i had lost 13 and 1/2 pound before xmas but put 11 back on, now i seem stuck in xmas mode and cant seem to shake it off.
so here goes ;)

well another day is nearly over and i have been good, so thats 4 days in a row. no alcohol and stuck to the plan;);)

i do feel quite good actully despite having a bit of a wobble earlier this eve.
i took my grandaughter home, she sleeps every week, and her mum, my ex daughter in law, said i can only have her every other week from now on.

we are very close so i feel abit gutted. but i suppose ill just have to get used to it. really felt like calling at the shop on my way home for wine and chocs, but i didnt so early to bed with choc options instead!!

so on to bed

good morning diary

well i went to weigh in and i had lost a pound. see never weigh yourself. throw the scales away! icould of been disappointed but my monthly arrived when i got up so i feel ok:jelous:

gonna do my 30 day shred before work. my friend at class said i should measure myself and see if this 30 day shred makes any difference to my waist line. so i think i will.

had a laugh a class, in a moment of weakness someone had fryed a cheese sarni!! they had sts and that was why:D:D

there is a new hifi bar coming out but no news of the syn free cranberry juice,

got to go and shred

well i haven't done my diary for 2 days

why not? i'll tell you why not cos i fell off
big style and now i feel baaaad!!

i was more in control last week than this, maybe its because my monthly came, i dont know.
i've been ok 2day so far and sun and mon are usually easy for my as the wi is not far away.

i need to be good on a tues and wed cos thats wots letting me down. and when i get to the weekend its just sooo tempting to be bad.
i am gonna try this week, no alcohol or treats till friday (i've heard this all before you know)
but the wedding is in 11 weeks and i neeed to frame myself

night all

good morning diary,

feel alot better today :)

just filled my slow cooker with a stew for tea (bought slow cooker after reading about them on minimins)

next i im gonna do my 30 day shred dvd (bought after reading about it on minimins)

i think this website has helped me alot, i think i was getting a bit board of dieting, doing the same things all the time. maybe thats a good hint, make a few changes now and then, helps i am sure :):)

off to shred!!!

Hope you don't mind me popping in to say hello :wavey:

I think you are doing really well. You can obviously do this as you lost weight before Xmas. Also it was * week this week so to lose 1.5lbs is absolutely fab :happy096:

Hi cathiec, sounds as if youre doing OK. Sorry to hear about not seeing your little granddaughter so much, I am a nanny too and I understand how you must feel. However, keep to the slimming plan and you will get there! You had a good loss, keep going and you will look great for the wedding:):)


Full Member
you are very welcome to read my diary :D

keep going cathie, once you get you head into starting you will, sometimes it just strikes you one morning & you will be determined, i know myself until that lightening bolt happens it's not going to happen. once i decided id hit rock bottom (weightwise) i cracked on & lost 2 st in my 1st 3months then anothe stone over the next two months, so it can be done.
however ........ i stopped going to class in september & old habits crept back ive put 2stone back on but were all human & im back on sw again as i have a holiday on june 1, last year i even lost 4lbs on a two wk holiday to turkey, so if you want badly enough to be slim for the wedding it can be done :) good luck & keep up with the diary, im sure it will help keep you on track x
