Hi Carbs4ever!

Congrats on starting SW again - I did the same about 7/8 weeks ago, exactly same as you lost it all on SW before and gradually put it all back on! So I am now doing it solo at home. I started a food diary a few weeks back too and have been finding it really helpful.

Good luck and remember - slow and steady wins the race!! X
Thanks, i'll have a look at yours!

Official first weigh-in today on home scales 10st 5lbs. First Target is a stone then maybe a push to 9st.

Egg and bacon

Treated myself to a bottle of coke zero today too (been trying not to have too much fizzy drink but its better than wine)

Exercise: Body Pump Class 1hr

Total for the week: 115! BAD but with Easter I suppose it could have been worse.

I will be making Wednesday my weigh-in day as I always do a class at the gym on Wednesday and there scales are more reliable than mine. So won't be weighing myself tomorrow.

Will see you all on Wednesday for day 1 of week 2 and first weight loss (i know an extra day is cheating but its only the first week ;-) I have also decided to pick a more positive Thread title so please come and visit me on... Slim4ever the SW Way
