    hi guys. i was a cambridger and managed successfully but have had to stop for financial reasons. i have done ww before with varied success, but my friend has given me all of her recipe books etc so am ready to give it another shot!!

    so today is my first day. hopefully with the added recipe books i'll be able to keep a bit more variety going and keep it up for a bit longer :)

    i'm getting married in july so need to shift as much weight as i can by mid-june which is when my dress fitting is. i would like to lose around two stones at least by then if at all possible. i swim around 40 lengths twice a week but have a dodgy back so much more strenuous activity than that does me in, but i try to keep active.

    wish me luck :)

    thanks guys. i'm finding today harder than i thought as i have yet to go food shopping properly and the things i thought would be ok just aren't. so i've eaten a remarkable amount of apples for this far into the day, ha. still. four apples in one day isn't going to kill me. and that's if i don't have one after my afternoon snack, ha.

    i know that once i get more used to what i can just eat and snack on i'll be fine.

    do ww do humous btw?

    howdy :)

    i'm finding it great. although i do seem to have a tendency to either be way under my points or slightly over them. i'm sure it evens out in the end but i'm working on finding the balance at the moment :)

    i have bought myself loads of snackajacks and ww crisps because at the moment i am severely craving all things crispy and it took me off track a few times this last week so i've made sure i have plenty of things to nibble on in the crispy department if needs be. and i've stocked up on plums because i can eat LOADS of them if feeling peckish, ha. and i'm still snacking on tomatoes which are lovely :)
