    Hey guys, hope everyone is well!
    I did calorie counting 2 years ago and lost 2 stone. Was really happy with my body then. I kept it off for a year but I put it back on ( and more ) when I got a new job in a call centre and a new boyfriend.
    I've been doing slimming world since april and finding it really hard to stick to. Recently gained half a stone back!
    Anyway, I'm going on holiday on April 1st next year with my Boyf and another couple (the girl is uber skinny) would Absolutly love to loose 3stone if not a bit more by then. I no it maybe hard to stick to what with Christmas round the corner but hey it's Gota be done. I remember how much I love calorie counting and how easily the weight came off! I'm a receptionist so my job involves sitting on my bum all day and I do zumba once a week. Will try to do something on the weekend too. I allow myself 1200-1400 cals per day and 52g of fat. Any tips would be appreciated xxx

    I use bootsdiets.com and it worked it out for me, that's how I lost it 2 years ago.
    I've had a good day today :) need to get back into the swing of things x

    Well done for making the decision to get back into shape! I'm on 1200 a day and quite new to calorie counting. I use software called 'Perfect Diet Tracker'. It's a free trial for 7 days and which point you decide if you want to buy it or not, I think it cost about 20 quid to buy but it's been amazing for me. It's really easy to see what you're getting in carbs, calories, fat, sodium, protein and fiber. I wouldn't have the patience to sit with pen and paper to jot my food intake down.

    How about looking online for recipes that contain 300 or 400 calories per serving. That way it'd give you a guide to breakfast, lunch and dinner with room for some snacking too. That's the way I started and it gave me good insight into meal ideas within my limit for the day. Good luck with it and don't worry, you really will get back into it in no time at all.
