    These diaries seem to be helping people get through so that's it i'm going to join in!

    Bit of background i'll try keep it short!
    When i met my partner 6years ago I was a lovely 8 1/2 stone, he lived down a big hill from me so the walk up almost everynight was a great excercise. Then there was a massive fallout with my parents (which would be a whole other story!!) and I moved to live with my partner and his mother. The lack of walking and the change in meals (people have their own way of cooking and what they eat and that..) meant some weight gain.
    Few years later I found out i was pregnant! After it settled in we began to be pleased about it however his mother was not! far from it! Id go out to eat in the evening and usually it would be rubbish food, and as you do in a relationship ... films...munch...weight gain!

    Anyway im waffling...at my first midwife appointment i weighed 10st 3 after that i didnt look at a scales till july last year (she was born in march)
    Purchased some cheap scales you know tesco value ...woop! they said i weighed 12st....started slimming worlds free online menu for 2 weeks and suprisingly lost a stone in 2WEEKS!! BUUUUT.... on purchasing digital scales we realised the old ones were wrong! id actually been 13 stone!!! and now i was 12!! carried on and lost another 7lbs over the next 2weeks gave up....not sure why!

    Start of 2011 I decided yes ill start again be slim for summer...however beginning of january OH's sister became very ill and was sent to manchester hospital about 2 hours from us....swine flu!!! We had to move down to his mums house for a few weeks to look after her kids while her and her mother were away.
    Shes out of hospital now and i have my time back to sort meals and so on soooo as of monday this week i started slimming world again! it was way too hard with the kids eating cakes and chocolate all the time argh! I did well dropped half a stone over the few weeks i avoided their snacks and did plenty of walking to fetch him from school.

    So now 14/3/2011 - 10st 13 RESTART

    I apologise this is getting a bit long but I will add from today my meals - pretty much following the free plan for this week to get back into it

    Breakfast
    I had Special K i know this is bad and all but I used it last time for breakfast and it was ok i dont like the rubbish they have for breakfasts!

    AM + PM Snack
    Cous cous with peppers

    Lunch
    it's supposed to be ploughmans platter...uch! so i think it will be soup :) Butternut squash with peppers mmmm

    Tea
    Chicken with noodles (sw speedy chinese)


    Put on my jeans that were tight few weeks back and they had a bit more give so i hope i have a good weight loss despite TOTM is trying its best to become a part of this week!




    Argh sorry for the length ill try keep them down! :D

    No write what you want, trust me nobody will read it - it's highly secure here;)

    After all, nobody would dream of reading someone's diary would they?

    Steve

    PS Did you say you were disappointed with a 3lb loss? - if so you're heading for heartache!

    You'll be worse if you STS or god-forbid put on a lb!

    Was a bit of a busy day yesterday so i'll fill in now.
    Was in my mums so decided to walk from hers to town and back was a bit of a walk must be 4/5miles but i felt a lot better for it! Wish i lived back in that town now theres nowhere to walk around here! Made the sw flapjacks had one of those or was it 2..hmmm. Cereal for breakfast, little nibble on some chicken for a snack, sandwich for dinner, flapjack snack and spag bol for tea mmm.

    So today cereal for breccie, cous cous snack and dinner will be made in a bit when child will stop eating my mp3 player!!! I will have the left over couscous and some ham or turkey havent decided yet! got to go child now think she can chew the laptop...
