    Well here goes.. My first attempt at a diary!

    My names Helen, I live in Buckinghamshire, I've been doing SW since end of January, was really focused, my head was really in the zone and had lost 1 1/2 stone and then I went on holiday, three weeks later head hasn't been in the right place but from yesterday I'm trying to get back in the right place as want to keep the good work up so thought I'd start a diary, I'm sure no one will want to read it but by me putting things down I'll feel I can't cheat in case anyone's looking!

    I've always been fairly big but was always fit as well but when I moved away from home 6 years ago that went to pot and I've done nothing however beginning of March this year something clicked and I started Couch to 5K and I've now joined a gym, it is a big effort for me to exercise but funnily enough I'm sort of enjoying it!

    I work for an airline and I do shift work, I used to use it as an excuse for my crap diet but trying not to do that now!

    Anyway here goes...

    Hey what a small world, what class do you go to? I go to Ann Power's on a Thursday but can't always get to that one so make other visits other days to Fairford Leas or Aston Clinton.

    I've just joined the Guttman, do you go there too?

    You'll have to upload a photo so if I see you I can say hi! X

    Short of half a HEB, annoyed as wanted to be 100% this week, should have had an alpen light bar.. Damn!

    I did manage to run but not for as long, thought I could do it without the app but didn't know how long I'd run for so gave up, realised I'd run for longer than I thought and then had to walk loads to get back!

    I know that lol but I'm pretty bad at having my HE's so thought I'd make myself have them this week, hence why a couple of days ago I had alpen lights after dinner even when I wasn't hungry as new I had to have them!

    Just had my first Personal Training session, hard work but enjoyed it, sure I'll feel it in the morning! Was told to lay off the running for a while as got pain in muscle in lower back so will have to go to the gym more to get all my Body Magic in.

    Yesterday wasn't a good day food wise! Woke up early, read for a couple of hours and then must have fallen asleep again cos woke up late so no time for breakfast, went to friends for lunch and had a naughty lunch and then had weigh-in, pleased with 1 1/2lb off but was hoping for more but what could I expect after what I ate at lunchtime!

    After weigh-in I just threw some bits together, definitely not a SW friendly day!

    Breakfast: nothing!!

    Lunch:
