Discover emily's food diary - ive got a loooong way to go!!

Hi all!

I've been lurking in the shadows for nearly three weeks now and have decided to bite the bullet and start writing a diary, I've seen the positivity you all give each other and really think this website can finally help me crack this diet :)

bit of background on me, I'm 22 and just graduated from uni, then got made redundant from my job so am currently seeking employment. I've always been on the large side and am currently at my largest 17s12lb :eek: I've finally reached the stage where enough is enough bye bye fat, looking forward to meeting the slim and healthy me :)

Sorry for boring you all lol if anyone staying on the discover plan has any tips or sees that im pointing food wrong please help!

I've been writing down my food for 2 weeks but i'll just start from today,

Allowance - 26 points

breakfast - porridge 30g oats, 1/4 semi- skimmed milk, tsp honey = 2.5

lunch - tortilla wrap, 1 tbsp light salad cream, slice of ham = 6.5

snack - ww carrot cake slice and ww toffee yoghurt = 2.5

tea - 150g pasta, med chicken breast, 1tsp garlic mayo, 2 tbsp lf philly, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes = 13.5

only 1 point left!! did do two hours of the davina fit dvd though, not sure on the activity points for that??

well thanks for reading, any help is appriciated!!

Well done on your losses so far!!

Your diary looks good hun.

I am not sure about activity points either, I dont add them up because if rather they burnt the calories than me eating them again after!

Keep up the good work :)

thankyou hun, i'm really positive this time round so hopefully it will stay like that!

yeh, activity points confuse me but I figured the same as you lol

do you have a diary on here? can't seem to find you thats all!

thanks for your support! xx
