    Hi (should I call you eternal or optimist?:D)

    I am trying to do a similar kind of thing to you. I've pinched lots of SW ideas but don't do the plan. Whether this is lazy, cheating or a waste of time, I don't know but I feel better and have stopped stuffing myself with chocolate buscuits.

    I think I should cut down on carbs too as I can seriously overdose on pasta and spuds!

    Anyway, good luck

    Hiya:) Just call me EO:p
    Yep, I think SW has a lot going for it and I esp like the 'red' days. I think the fact that I'm consciously thinking about what I'm eating instead of just randomly stuffing my face is bound to show some sort of improvement. I am definitely eating more healthily and because I want to make sensible eating a way of life I need to make my 'plan' one that I can live with:)
    Good luck with your 'plan' and I hope it pays dividends:)

    Thanks, Valerie:) TBH I don't know if this will work for me...I guess I will soon find out if it leads to weight loss but the real answer I want to find is if this is a way of eating I can maintain for the rest of my life. Fed up with yo-yo-ing dieting and looking for something more permanent but also quite flexible. Exercise wise...well I don't think the gym is ready for me just yet:p so it will have to be walking for now and again that is something I can do everyday near enough and I can increase as I feel able. Hope all is going well with you and you've had a nice Sunday:)

    Well I had my first home weigh in this morning since starting my wee 'plan' last Monday & it seems to be working as I've lost 4lbs:)
    I don't think I'm going to use this diary to post my daily food intake as I think that will get boring. Instead I will post on days when I've had a 'bad' day or found some interesting fact, recipe, tip or just when I feel like offloading...moans...not lbs unfortunately:D
    One thing I've found this week is that drinking 2 litres of water is helpful not only for making me feel 'full' but I see the difference in my skin:)

    Thanks, Valerie....today has been a good day...had a brisk walk for an hour and included some previously avoided hills:p Puffed out certainly and legs aching but I know it will get easier and walking is going to be my main form of exercise as it is free and I can adjust/increase it as my over-all fitness improves. Going to have a little read of your diary in a mo. Hope you have had a nice Monday:)

    Update

    Well it will be 3 weeks on Monday since I started trying to improve my eating habits and improve my level of exercise....well...it's been so easy to improve my level of exercise...as I was doing bog all to begin with;)

    Anyhoo....I've lost 7lbs so far but I am not expecting to lose anything this Monday as I'm pre-menstrual and bloated and I've made a couple of unhealthy choices foodwise....namely a slice of Bakewell Tart:eek: and frying fish in breadcrumbs rather than grilling or steaming it:rolleyes:

    However, I have been walking more and I am continuing to have my 2 litres of water per day...both of which...I feel the better for:)

    My main bit of news is that after reading Lily42UK's diary I have an appointment for a gym induction introductory session (with personal fitness plan) on Tuesday afternoon:p

    At 5ft 0 and 14 stone 1lb I was hoping to put this level of torture and self-humiliation off until I reached 12 stone but I've been and gone and done it now:rolleyes: I just hope no-one mistakes me for one of those big balls they sit on to exercise:eek:
