I'm sure this is going to be very dull but thought it may keep me on the straight and narrow.
I am 31 - last Sunday. I remember approaching 30 and thinking - must lose weight - but nothing happened. I am so lazy. My lovely husband proposed a month before my 30th and we got married in February this year. I was good but didn't lose much weight - maybe a stone. (Which is a bit like a drop in the ocean!) I wanted to be a slim bride but had no willpower and I think I also thought why should I slim - there seemed to be an expectation that I would slim down to nothing and grow my hair - so being a stubborn ***** I cut off my nose to spite my face and stayed as a fat cow and now have fat wedding photos! Still love them though!

I know I can diet. I did slimming world about 5 years ago and lost about three stone. But of course laziness, stress, circumstances all meant it has gone back on. I am back to my heaviest weight but now I am doing something about it!

So why now?

We have decided to try for a baby. I am 31 and although that isn't ancient I still think it could take a while to conceive and want to make sure I have a good chance of getting healthily pregnant with healthy baby - so the fat has to go!

I am giving up alcohol - as recommended when trying to conceive (I keep telling myself that!), I'm doing slimming world and about to go and buy wii 'Just Dance'. (which hopefully will gather less dust than wii fit!- oops) And apparentyly I should give up caffeine - which is going to be the hardest - just tried camomile tea and nearly threw up - perhaps I could just cut down :confused:

This is our first month of TTC so I suppose there is teeny weeny chance I may be pregnant but whether I am or not. my lifestyle is changing - now! :D

Hiya, congratulations on starting on your journey!! Both to slimville and TTC!! You have an amazing target which I'm sure you'll achieve.
And well done on your week 1 loss!

Are you going to class, or going it alone? There are lots of peeps on here doing both so you'll get loads of support either way x

This is why I need this thread - for me it is like a confession box.

I have been really good this week. Eating well and having no alcohol and less caffeine. I've decided that camomile tea is actually quite nice!
Yesterday I was really good but did eat some tesco chicken tikka legs and although I vaguely attempted to remove the skin it wasn't successful!! So I probably had quite a few syns but would guess it was still under 15.
Today I have been out for the day and have been TERRIBLE!! I had a bacon sandwich, a burger and few chips for lunch and a chocolate brownie!!!!!!!!! Aaaaagh!!!!!! And the worst of it is it made me ill! (At least I guess that may remove some of the damage)
So I have to be really good tomorrow and over the weekend. Already planning super free breakfasts and lunches and syn free dinners. I will limit the damage. I want to reach my first target when I weigh in on Monday morning! Cross your fingers!
