hi to you all, I joined this site last year in the hope of loosing a few pounds but it didnt last very long so here i am again. Over the last year or so ive tried to convince myself that i havent been putting on weight but now my clothes are more than uncomfortable, ive decided to do something about it. Im only 5"2 and alway have been a very small frame weighing just under 8st (was to thin then) but the wieght has slowly crept on and im now 9st 12. I had a very stressful year in 2012 with lots of personal problems which still arent over. During this time ive turned to comfort eating, takeaways and junk food and not eating 3 square meals. My biggest issue is a total lack of will power so on Monday night i joined slimming worls. My aim is to reach 8 and half stone by June when im attending my friends wedding abroard. I thought id write a diary on here in the hope that some of you can give me some pointers of what im doing right and wrong and to give me a cyber kick up the ass when my will power disapears again. I will be following extra easy so i dont have to make seperate meals for the rest of the family so here goes: Tuesday EE Breakfast 2 eggs scrambled, half tin of baked beans Lunch 2 slices of wholemeal bread (HEB), half tin of baked beans, 5xslice of wafer ham.
