    Hi all. I am Caz and I am 31 from Northampton.

    I first discovered SW 7 years ago and last 4 stone. For the most of the last 7 years I kept it off but the last year and a bit I piled on the pounds. Injury meant I stopped running, my only form of exercise. :( So re joined Thursday. I put 1 1/2 stone back on. I am determined to get back on it and shift the last few lbs I always carried with me prior :)

    I am diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which does impact how I feel on a daily basis. So this is where I hope to record my achievements and welcome any support along the way :)

    Okay i know it only 5pm but day 1 feels good. Off to get weighed at 6:30 and expecting a gain. Sucks as I started last week and am expecting to have put on. As friends pulled all the stops and rescued me from a Christmas alone and as a result drank, ate and was merry.

    But I am determined next week will be a loss :)

    So weigh in and then off to see the hobbit. Will have my hot chocolate and soup when i get home.

    Today is a rubbish day in regards to the Fibromyalgia.

    Did nt get to sleep til 4. Got woken up at 5 in pain. Then woke up at 9:30. Every movement hurts.

    Mother is coming round and making me a fry up and I have taken out a frozen SW keema curry.

    So today is looking like an Extra Easy day.

    Was going to make up some Speed soup today will give the ingredients to my mother and ask her to cook it up for me. So hopefully that will also negate my poor choices last night.
