    Hey i'm Emma!

    I've decided that keeping a weightloss diary might be a good idea, so that i can look back at what i've done and also hopefully get lots of helpful and motivating comments and ideas (i need them!!)

    Ok, so i did slimming world for about a year and a half, but had to stop at the beginning of the summer because my uni course led to a year abroad in Russia (I'll be back in England and back to classes in July!). I managed to lose 2 stone, but then after stopping i put it all back on!!

    So after weighing myself after Christmas and honestly being shocked that i was back to my starting weight, I've been doing SW by myself with a magazine subscription and my old books. It has been incredibly difficult without the online syn-searcher, and also because the Russians don't believe in low-fat food!! I've managed to lost 12.5lbs so far which i'm pleased about, but i would really like to get to a stone and a half loss before my birthday (beginning of July), because i don't really want to be 14 stone something for my 21!st!

    My goal at the moment is to get to around 10.5st, so thats about 4.5st to lose, but ofcourse that depends on how i feel as i get along.

    I'm generally sticking to the plan well, but i do have occasional slip-ups and binges!!

    So i'm gonna do my best to write how i get on every day (hopefully!) and hopefully get some good results!!! wish me luck!! xx

    oh and if anyone has any comments/criticism/suggestions, feel free!! i really do need as much support and advice as i can get!!! x

    Hi Emma,

    oh yeah it's been difficult!! don't have a fridge (which wasnt a problem in winter but it is now!!) and ofcourse the lack of low-synned food!! but at the same time its done me good food-wise because microwaves and microwave meals arent common over here so i've had to cook everything from scratch with fresh veg & meat!! although i haven't lost as quickly as i would have like or as quickly as i would have done if i was in the UK, but i think i'm doing alright!! x

    lol yeah, i had a wonderful surprise thismorning when i went to have my breakfast. my milk had completely solidified! i've been keeping it in a flask in a bucket of cold water to try and keep it cold! it works (sort of) because without it, it would go in a few hours!! it wasn't so bad in winter because i just kept all my food in the window and it stayed cold, but then occasionally it got so cold that everything froze...imagine how surprised i was to find that my carton of milk had completely frozen solid overnight!!

    i have learnt to cook properly though which is a huge bonus!!! x

    true, i could do that, but honestly i dont really get much packaged food, don't know what it really is half the time!!! the only stuff i get is ketchup (they have heinz!! :bliss: ) but i generally tend to stick to the fresh stuff because i actually know what that is!!

    i have no idea why the russians are so slim though, some of the stuff they eat!!! they looooooove this stuff which is basically like sourcream (but they all say its not the same) and i saw a carton of it in the supermarket....45% fat :eek: !!! to them its normal!!!

    oook so, had a good start to a day that i know will probably end badly (got a party to go to tonight!!) its such a nice day today, about 25C! and i managed to resist the call of icecream!!

    So, for breakfast i had just plain cereal (my milk had gone off :( HEXB) and melon.

    For lunch i had chicken & vegetable rice, and some shredded carrot and raisins (2)as well a a nice cold bottle of diet coke!!

    Not sure what the plan will be for tea, my friend's fairly healthy and said something about pasta salad so that shouldn't be too much of a problem, drinkswise i'm taking a couple cans of cider (managed to find it in the supermarket, very VERY rare over here!!) which i think are about 8 syns each. x
