    Hi there and welcome to my new weight loss diary!

    A little about me: I have dieted for as long as I can remember. Followed SW for a long time at Uni and lost most of the weight I had put on (sure I was around 12st but not sure I didn't weigh myself!)

    At my heaviest in Jan 2011 I weighed 11st 4lbs (158lbs) and after having done SW again and not really losing much or enjoying it, then I took a big step to do weightwatchers. Best decision I ever made. By July 2011 I had got down to 9st 11lbs (goal weight) and then even lower to around 9st 8lbs. Since 2011 my weight has fluctuated but it has NEVER gotten as bad as my pre-WW weight thankfully!

    Weighed in today at 9st 12lbs (138lbs). Now my BMI is normal and I'm generally a size 10 but I still feel I have more to go now. Feeling a bit flabby :(

    So I would like to try and lose those pesky 12lbs to get down to a nice round (hopefully not TOO round!) 9 stone! It's my fiancés birthday on 14th March and our 3 year anniversary on 18th March so to lose it BY that week would be nice... but I won't beat myself up too much as long as my losses are happening.

    I did Simple Start last week, but was my TOTM so not really a good week.... so will continue with it again this week and see what happens. I have done well on PP but tbh following Simple Start was much easier to have dinner with my fiance as he is quite a fussy eater and it meant we could just throw everything in a pot and not worry about weighing things.

    As for exercise, i think THAT will improve, if not my weightloss, but how my body looks and feels. I will be doing interval running on a treadmill and will also be doing plank and squat challenge too!

    Anyway... i have gone on and on.... but drop by and say 'hi' :)

    Weighed in at 9st 11.5lbs (so technically lost 0.5lbs since yesterday lol) but will still go with 9st 12lbs as a starting weight!

    Breakfast: A plain WW wrap (needed to go shopping!)
    Lunch: A plain WW wrap; x2 shredded wheat & skimmed milk.
    Dinner: Chicken breast, Nando's lemon & herb spice, WW pitta, wholemeal couscous and salad.
    Snacks: Banana, 0% yogurt, meringue (TREAT). WW cake (TREAT).

    Need to do Day 1 of my 30 day squats and 30 day plank challenge. Hoping once I start it, it'll be easier!

    Bit rubbish so far.... Didn't do Day 4 and have missed like 2 days!! But will keep going as of today as I have no found out my fiance has been granted a week's holiday in July/August so we are planning a trip to Disneyworld in Orlando, FL! 4 parks plus 2 water parks so will DEFINITELY need to lose those pesky 12lbs by then and tone up!! Hopefully it will be a good incentive... however as it is 6 months away I don't know if it will make me push myself enough OR will it be good as it's given me much more time to lose weight slowly......?

    So, been doing Simple Start for the last week... but not much exercise just a few squats and planks. However, I'm a Carb Junkie!! I know it. My fiance knows it. And now you know it. They say the first step is admitting it right...?? Well Simple Start is all about the meat and carbs... So I have two choices that I can see:

    1. stop doing simple start/F&H and go back to pro points so that wraps, crumpets, bread, pasta are all in smaller portions.
    2. Realise that I need to just avoid carbs UNLESS its for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    No. 2 is mainly because I can (and do) come home from work and grab a WW wrap or WW pitta from the bread bin and chomp on it. I don't butter it, I don't have anything in it.... just a plain piece of wrap/pitta/crumpet lol. So no wonder it's been 6 days since I started Simple Start and I've lost just 1/4lb (and that's probably my scales being extra kind to me!)

    Anyone else a nibbler on carbs like me? Any advice or comments welcome :)

    bugsbunny2000 Proud to be a LOSER :)

    Stuffed my face on carbs today... I think I will try for a week to stick to F&H with 49 weekly pp. Plus I will be trying to continue with my squat/plank challenge and will spend at least 5 nights walking on the treadmill for 60mins or 3k (which ever is less!) at an incline, building up stamina. Might even mix it up with 10-20mins incline interval running too.... either way I NEED to get my butt into gear!

    Fiance and I have been planning our holiday this year to Disneyworld, FL! 4 parks and 2 water parks.... definitely need to get into shape so I can wear some nice shorts/tops in the 33 degree July/August heat!!

    Even if I just lose 1lb a week, then in 3 months I would have got to my final goal! hopefully thinking like that will be a big enough incentive! And make me feel less guilty when I can't stick to plan (eg going on a course Tuesday, going to the Dog Races with meal included this month and fiance's birthday/our anniversary in March)

    Anyway, I'm off to sleep now... need to be up early to pick fiance up from the airport and then going for starbucks and cinema with an old friend. xx

    Hi Leanne! Thanks for saying hi! I did slimming world too.... it's what lost the majority of my weight (from about 12st down to 10st) when I was at Uni... however I found when I tried it again a few yrs later, this time attending group, I lose 11lbs but put it back on so easily and couldn't get back to it. Plus I wasn't enjoying what I was eating. When I did ww, I found I could do that for the 7months without finding I was "missing out". It fit around teacher-training at uni too which was hectic in itself lol!

    Day 1 of Simple Filling:
    Breakfast: Banana, x2 Crumpets & fried Egg, Baked Beans Lunch: A WW wrap (no filling.... i know, I need to go shopping though!)
    Starbucks Caramel Cream Frappucino no whipped cream (5pp)
    Dinner: Pork, potatoes and veg
    Dessert: Banana & Fat Free Greek Yog
    Snack: x1 crumpet

    Also managed to walk over 1km in 13mins mixing up my incline from 2-10% so my legs are buuurning! And a 30sec plank!

    You're very similar to me. I bounce around 9st 7 to just under 10 and although I'm a size 10 I'm pretty bloody wobbly! Ugh!

    I'm going to florid in June. I'd like to be maintaining 9 St 5 by then but as I'm currently 9 St 12 that seems kinda impossible!

    How tall are you?

    Yes my tummy is the wobbliest thing ever. I know though from experience that no matter what my weight it never really changes so much!

    When i first did weightwatchers i went to the gym... and when I got to 9st 11lbs I looked alot more svelte. However, at 9st 11lbs now I feel like jelly!! Definitely need to up my exercise more than worrying about my diet!! But it's easier to control food than to exercise with me!

    Eurgh rubbish week! Had good moments and crap moments!! Think I'm gonna go back to pro points! It's not the S&F doesn't work... it's just not for me! Too MUCH choice means my "inner off-switch" is broken and I will just eat and eat and eat!!
    SO as of tomorrow I will be back on pro-points :)
     
  17. bugsbunny2000

    bugsbunny2000 Proud to be a LOSER :)

    Had one day on pro points and already feel better!! I think i prefer the "restrictions" of PP because I actually get to eat more range of foods without feeling guilty. It's all about pre-planning! Even happier not everything will need to be made from scratch!!

    Attached are my February Goals (even though
    It's already 8th but won't hurt to start now with 20 days to go!)

    3lbs loss might be a bit too much but as they say, aim for the moon; even if you don't reach it you'll land among the stars! So aim for 3lbs and 1.5lbs would still be terrific! Xx

    Had a cheeky jump on the scales this morning (seriously I need to hide em somewhere!) but I was 9st 9.5lbs :) so another 1lb loss showing since yesterday! Very pleased!

    Tried making WW jelly sweets.... But they're not hard enough for jelly sweets (maybe needed less water or more gelatine) and the muller light bit has chewy bits in it maybe where it set too quickly! Bleugh :(

    Also tried my protein shake with water instead of milk saving me 3pp! And realised the serving is only 30g not 45g so only 3pp not 4pp! Can't say it tastes as good without milk....... And I can't imagine it'll keep me fuller for as long.... But protein is protein!

    I've been having terrible trouble sleeping... By that I mean I've been waking up too early and feeling knackered but guaranteed when I get up at 6.30 for work tomorrow I'll struggle!!

    Got lots of marking and planning to do for this week coming! Luckily we are going to test the children using past maths papers so a quiet final week before half term at least.

    Not sure what to have for dinner today.......

    bugsbunny2000 Proud to be a LOSER :)

    Decided to go to sleep.... For 4hrs!! Whoops! Did feel less sick when I woke up so obviously needed it!! Had a lovely dinner! I've missed having roasted veg - used to have em all the time on SW!! Also the frozen Black Forest berries I had from asda were sooooooo nice!!!! Yum!!!

    Completed my plank challenge and beat my time from yesterday! When I compete against myself I automatically push myself further so this challenge is good for me!!

    Now to watch another episode of Dance Moms then back to bed :) last week before half term.... It's not gonna be pretty!
