    Hi all,

    Just signed up here and had to write my first thread!

    Well, I went for my first weigh in this evening, and I've lost a fabulous 6lbs!

    The first week has been a bit tough, not being able to eat a smidge of chocolate, but myself and my other half have been eating fabulous lunches and dinners, and I know I'll be eating a little treat each day after next week! It's all so worth it now!

    The exercise has also been coming suprisingly easy-ish.
    I've been doing a bit on the Wii, taking the dog for an extra walk each day and doing some classes recorded from Sky+. Although, haven't been able to exercise for the past two days as I have hurt my lower back, which is also a new (painful) expreience to me!

    Just can't wait to feel comfortable in my own skin! Each stone I lose will be a mini goal, but my first main goal is to lose 4 stone. Then I'll decide how much more to lose from there! I was comfortable with myself when I was 14st, and even though that is technically overweight I was happy with myself, the way I looked and the fact I could by clothes in any shop. Being at the top end of New Look is not a pleasent experience, especially when even a size 18 doesn't fit on the bottom anymore. I still have my size 14 denim mini skirt that looked amazing on.

    Anyway, that's all for now :D here's to a healthy and slim future!

    Have a lovely evening all,

    D* xXx

    Hi Shanny,

    I followed the plan, so I ate the breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the book, but I changed them for other recipes in the book on days where I didn't like something. Here's what I ate in a nutshell:

    Breakfasts - Green portion pot of Frosted Wheats or Tesco Special Flakes (their version of Special K) with milk from allowance.
    Lunches - Tesco fresh soup, Tesco cooked chicken (they do really nice tikka and chargrilled ones, 2 for £5) with rocket salad & sweet chilli sauce, bacon sandwich, jacket potato with tuna & rocket salad.
    Dinners - Pasta bolognese, minced beef & onion pie (in the magazine), chicken stuffed with garlic & quark with stuffed mushrooms & rocket, pasta with chilli prawns, cheesy Quorn pasta.

    We've also started eating out of a bowl where possible (i.e. with the pasta dishes), as sometimes feeling full is psychological. The bowl is always full when food is served, whereas the food would look like a small portion on a plate! So with the bowl we feel like we've eaten a big portion! :p

    I didn't do much of the exercise that was in the book, but I did take the dog out for a 15-20 min walk on most days, until I hurt my back! The other half normally takes him so it was new to me! :rolleyes:

    I anticipate a really little loss this week, as I couldn't do the exercise class this week and haven't done any exercise for 5 days :sigh:

    Hope that helps! Please ask if there's anything else!

    Luvs,
