    Hi there

    Good to see you......

    a little bit about me. I'll be 50 very soon and this is doing me head in.

    I've been off and on SW many times - thing is I know it works when I work it. I'm putting good money into doing this on-line and the Yorkshire lass in me says get me monies worth.

    I am a vegetarian (unless I am stoney broke, am very hungry and someone offers me some dead animal). When I have the money I dream of being vegan but..... thats just a daydream.

    I have 4 stone to lose

    My main form of exercise is walking - either walking Pickle and/or walking along with Leslie Sansone.

    I am determined to be one lean mean sex machine - I have high aspirations.... at the moment I am fat, floppy and terminally single.

    I'm only here to change one thing - me..... albeit completely

    .......... as to the other boring bits about me..... as they say..... More will be revealed.

    Which reminds me - I must tkae my measurements!

    Oh, by the way why I called it cheap and cheerful was that I am doing this on a limited budget (I work part-time) and I want to be as positive as possible. as the song says I get knocked down, I get up again, you ain't ever gonna keep me down

    For this month I have done a shop online with Iceland (frozen veg and salad stuff) and one from Asda (dog food and cereal) I will endevour to only go to Aldi or use Sainsbury's basic range between now and the end of next month!

    walked Pickle this evening - 5,770 steps for the day. Although its not much compared to some its more than I have been doing of late.

    Asda delivered the dog food - and I had ordered some frozen fruit. Well the container had split so the content was all over the bag. I tried eating it then decided I am not a rubbish bin so threw it away.

    Maybe I am learning

    Hi there,

    Just wanting to touch base. I have slept for most of the day. I've been up the shop and brought some diet cola..... and a crunchie. I plan to stick to plan all week apart from my birthday afternoon. I will be going to have me hair done and I fancy buying in some cake for the occasion. Question is What do slim hairdressers eat??

    Must walk Pickle this evening...... I have rejoined walkingwithattitude and my goal at the moment is to make 7,000 steps a day - with me sleeping all day that ain't gonna happen today..... but I will try my best. Maybe take my camera with me as well

    I am ashamed of my measurements.

    Guess it's time to listen to the last of the Top 40 and then get all comfy for The Archers - yes, sad person I know:)

    Hi there

    Up early today..... drinking my water...... my body misses it when I don't drink it

    Trying to sort out what to do today .... think I will hit the charity shops and buy myself a new pair of jeans and see if there are any skirts for interviews etc., I am squeezing into a size 16 bottom but could do with somethings in size 18 for this first month on Slimming World. Buying from charity shops means less guilt if I slim down (when I slim down :)) and decide to bin them

    Might go to Aldi but then again might leave that till later in the week.

    Just had an e-mail from Iceland ..... seeing its my birthday coming up I have been given a free dessert..... might take advantage of this on Wednesday (my birthday) when I will have my hair and nails done. Treating myself

    Hi there,

    Got myself a pair of jogging bottoms from boon marche today..... I looked round the charity shops but there was nothing to inspire. Came home and had a lazy afternoon. My dinner tonight was boiled new potatoes and a tin of asda chilli beans..... it tasted better than what I thought it would.

    Must remember to access the SW site through internet explorer and not firefox.... for some unknown reason SW don't like my usual browser.

    Did 6,100 steps today - I am doing the Body Magic Challenge of the London Marathon at the moment. Now if only I could navigate the SW map of the challenge.

    Bedtime for me methinks

    Hi there,

    Got through my birthday....... by eating chocolate! Back on plan from yesterday evening. For dinner I had a tin of potatoes, tin of chickpea dahl and spinach (frozen heated through) Turned out quite nice.

    Now to decide what to have for breakfast - do I have 2 or 4 weetabix? Think its a 4 weetabix day

    At least I had me hair cut yesterday so that might mean a loss on the scales come Saturday

    Hi Judith
    I'm here to sub!
    I could almost copy your diary :)
    I'm Mandy and am a Yorkshire lass too. I turn 50 (gulp) in April, and have just decided to give slimming world another go. I've been on a diet forever and seem to rotate through weight watchers, 5:2, calorie counting and slimming world. I find that when I'm having a sw period I do better if I keep a food diary on here to keep me on track. I also follow green, but more to restrict me because I really struggle with the 1/3 plate of veg when I do EE.
    Together we can do this - hopefully...all being well...etc...etc
    Oh, I have a cat called Charlie who's nick-name is Pickle - spooky!

    Hi Mandy and Charlie,

    I am not looking forward to weigh in this morning at Boots. I overdid it with chocolate on Wednesday afternoon but aside from that I don't think I've been eating enough. Sure not enough veg and fruit only sporadic. And I haven't been walking Pickle so far....... now if only panic would reduce my weight. I must remember that I Had me eyebrows waxed and hair cut so that shouold go in my favour ...... but by the same token I've now got nailpolish on.

    Time will tell...... I do hope I haven't put on though

    Hi there

    I am pleased to say that I lost a pound today....

    Went into Iceland and brought (and ate) some fruit. I had a chocolate bar but within syns, I'm determined to do better next week :)

    Trying hard not to think about tomorrow.

    I've done not a lot over my week off but its been nice to nap whenever I want to. Napped for most of today - and realised that I'd had no caffeine so I'm drinking diet Pepsi as I type.

    Wondering what to eat tonight - and what I'll have tomorrow. On a Monday I tend to eat at a cafe so might have jacket potato......... but I don't like guessing my HE's for cheese. I will NOT get stressed about this. Most important is waking up on time in the morning!
