Charli's Grub Diary

Well hello gorgeous!!

I'm new to the site, I need a sharp kick in the bum which is why I've descended on you ;)

I lost 3 1/2 stone on SW going to group about 18 months ago for my wedding (yay yay etc) but I've stagnated since! Been very naughty, although I haven't gained - in fact I've lost another half stone bizarre!

Anyway I'm back on SW but this time I'm going alone & exercising (at home, with the curtains tightly drawn!).

I intend to keep as strict as I can - I also imagine I'll be extremely bad instead. I've got into bad habits. So I'm kinda helping someone out there might help me stay on track (possibly with a whip?)

So here I shall post my food diary, feel free to comment & if you want recipes or anything I'm happy to share :D

And what a great day to start! Halloween - the end of harvest & start of winter (well I'm not waiting til Jan 1st, I want a new wardrobe for Christmas!) So, please, join me on my epic adventure & let us see where it takes us...

Love & hugs
Charli XxX

A happy downward spiral
Your first post is great!
Very honest and you sound like you mean business.

Good luck to you.

I know what you mean about hoping for people to help keep you on track. Somtimes its hard to say no but knowing you gotta face up to it on here (your diary) where others will see is a good incentive! haha.

Well done on your previous loss, and well done for not gaining! Thats brilliant. Good luck with your new slimming world journey.
