    Zenaworrier Back to reality!

    Hi guys,

    I am back (well sorta, I never stopped reading just stopped posting!)

    I need to get back to it. I have put all of my weight back on plus some :( . I had three goals at the beginning of the year- 1, Move house, 2, Get divorced and 3, Lose weight. Have done the first 2 now just need to get the weight off!

    Not really sure which route to go down. I don't want to do a VLCD because I know I won't be able to stick to it! My mum has done slimming world and has done well with that but I also did a bit of ww and I enjoyed it. But ultimatly I know I need to get moving and exercising again. Going to start running again (if the weather ever picks up) and now I live nice and close to work I walk that every day.

    In the meantime while I make up my mind what diet to do I will post my food and exercise here!

    Big hugs to you all x

    Yep Emma (well in the process). Things for his family back in Pakistan aren't good, his dad is getting old so N has decided to move back there and is taking over the family business. It is too dangerous for me and would put his families life in danger me being there so that is the end of that. Very sad but enjoying the single life atm :)

    I have about 3 stone to lose. I am leaning towards slimming world atm because I want to learn how to eat healthily and properly and I feel sometimes with ww it is to easy just to use their products rather than cooking from scratch. Or I might just cut out eating rubbish and exercise more! How is Darcy now? Still teething?

    Well I'm really sorry to hear that hun, I hope you are ok xxx

    I actually agree about WW but I know nothing of slimming world. At the moment I am just "eating clean" no processed food, sugar etc it works so go for it babe. I joined a gym for the first time in my life and I love it but walking is excellent exercise keep it up.

    Darcy is much better thanks hun, she is still teething but her cold/runny nose etc is going that is what was affecting her more as she kept waking herself up thinking she couldnt breath :( bless her! She was never grumpy once though we are so lucky with her, she is such a pet xx

    Ok so I think I have made up my mind! Going to do JUDDD with slimming world principles - eating lots of fruit and veg and home cooking. Also dusted off my kettle bell last night and did a 20 min workout video from youtube. My arms are really flabby atm so want to sort those out first. So it says Normal days I need 2267 and down days 453 with 20% weight lose mode. Going to round it up and down so it is 2200 on up days and 500 on down days just so it is easier to remember!
    Off to Tescos now to stock up!

    OK so today went a bit wrong so an inbetweeny day. Lessons learnt!

    B- Oat so simple golden syrup 210
    S- Hot choc 70 and 2 finger kit kat 105, suger free jelly 10 (didn't like it :( )
    L- Quavers 88
    S- Hot choc 70 and 2 finger kit kat 105
    D- Quorn cottage pie yuck :( 366 choco mousse to get rid of the taste! 80.

    Total: 1,203

    So lessons learnt:

    Plan better!
    Find more filling lower cal foods.
    Don't buy jelly or cottage pie again.
    Not speak to silly customers who drive you to chocolate (ok so don't really have a choice with that one but shouldn't let it get to me so much!)
    It is ok to be hungry. I am not going to die!

    Here's to an up day tomorrow!
