Hi everyone. Im Claire, and today I stepped on the scales for the first time in many years and saw a big 27st staring back at me. That hurts. but I want to channel the emotion into getting a good start in the diet. i am all stocked up with slim fast, and today was the first day of my diet. choc shake for breakfast, meal bar for lunch with banana and apple as a snack. I have had Cornish pasty for dinner. I'm not going to be too strict on the evening meals just yet, as I need something to look forward to! in terms of timelines, I'd really like to be at 20 by 21st March 2015, in time for my holiday for Mexico. To be track for that,mill need yo I have lost 4 stone by Xmas. A tall order but when I'm THIS MUCH overweight, I'm hoping if will be easier to shift in these early days. so wish me luck on My journey! I'm going to post daily on here, and would welcome and support or positivity along the way.
