Hoping to go from flab to fab on Extra Easy :):)

#1
Hiya :)

So after a huge reality check.. I've decided that I need to get myself in gear and get serious about losing this weight. I've spent the past few months following the extra easy plan half heartedly on and off, and am finally at the point where I know I desperately need to sort myself out. I'm being a bridesmaid at the end of August, so I'm going to use that as motivation to try and shift at least a couple of stone to get myself along the right track :) I'm hoping writing out my daily food will help keep me on track.. Hope you enjoy the ramblings, and please feel free to comment and give me some tips on what I can do to improve what I'm eating!

Don't lose heart - we all have days like that - have a hot chocolate like options or something to satisfy the choccie cravings!

Remember how good you feel when you weigh in and have had a loss!

Thank you! That's lovely of you :) I decided to brave it and went to my local group tonight for the first time... I'm really hoping it will give me the boost I need!

Hi :)

Thanks for your comment. You're so right about the Breakfasts/lunches.. I used to be much better but I've swapped my hours at work so I work a shift over lunch time.. a bit of a killer for getting in good habits. Today was much better though, as I managed to have a late lunch at 3pm, not ideal but better than no food at all! I'm keen to be better so will make sure to up the breakfasts especially.. egg and beans on brown toast tomorrow I think! Yum :) xx
