Diary of my 623rd Diet - This one will work!!


Proper Little Madam

I have spent the last 6 weeks messing around on various different diets...(actually the last 20 years)...but on this occasion during the last 6 weeks I have managed to lose 12lbs.
Lord knows how.

In the last few weeks, I have done the food replacement protein shake thing, I had a bash at a sugar free diet, a miserable attempt at Slim Fast and finally a low fat diet...which lasted a full 22 hours until I was invited to a barbie.
Anyway I have decided to go back to the plan that helped me lose four stone 10 years ago and that's good old fashioned calorie counting.

According to that Nutracheck site thing-a-majig I should be eating 1400 cals per day and exercising for approx 30 mins per day for a 2lb weight loss per week...so that is what I am gonna do...until I get to goal.

By putting it in writing in this diary I am hoping it will give my will power a boost when times get tough...and set my goal in stone.

Tomorrow - Friday 30th May is day one. :)

This was today's crappy diet - and why I soooo need the structure of something like calorie counting.

B/fast: porridge made with soya milk (my thoughts - so far so good)

Lunch: baked potato, salad and 3 thin slics of ham (my thoughts - still going well)

Snack @ 2pm one bag of crisps (my thoughts - blown the diet today by eating that bag of junk...may as well carry on)

From 3pm onwards: 6 more bags of crisps, ham sandwhich, 20 almonds and a large bag of jellybeans. :eek:
Oh aye and then I had a Renee for the heartburn.

Oh well tomorrow's a new start and a new day. :)
